La Serna 38, Westlake 35 — The Lancers blew a big lead (35-14) but scored late to beat Pac-5 Division Westlake for the second consecutive season. Wowza! Looks like Frankie Football and crew are gonna be a force in the Southeast Division playoffs AGAIN.
St. Francis 49, La Mirada 20 — Things go from bad to worse for the Matadores as they are now 0-4!!! Color me shocked as I thought St. Francis was a doable opponent for La Mirada. Instead, Knights QB Ty Gangi went off and Jimmy Bonds’ boys are now 3-0 … that Monrovia showdown cannot come fast enough. PHOTO GALLERY
Gladstone 28, El Monte 14 — First win of the Citos Marinez era at Gladstone. El Monte takes a step back after taking a step forward last week.
Baldwin Park 48, Ganesha 26 — The Braves are the turnaround story of the season. Now 4-0 under second-year coach Chris Williams.
