GAME OF THE DAY: Pomona beat Bishop Amat in pool play after Eric Harper intercepted a pass in the closing seconds of a tie game with Amat driving. The win gave the Devils two points and led to a 34-32 final. Pomona jumped all over Amat early but the Lancers found their sea legs and battled back and were on the doorstep of a win before the interception. Kudos to the Pomona fans who ran their smack earlier this week. The Devils look real, real good. Nobody in the Miramonte League is touching them and they look like real legit Mid-Valley Division title contenders. Lotsa talent. Amped up coaching staff who looks to have a good thing going on. As for Amat, QB play looks to be a serious issue as of now. A lot of guys broke open, the QBs saw it too late and the balls got their too late. But that’s what all this is for … so hopefully things get better. Both Amat and Pomona went 4-1 in the pool.
