Glendora fans, here’s your respect. Pickup tomorrow’s Tribune … you’re on the cover of the entire thing!
Say what you want, the Tartans have heart.
Rosemead 28, Orange 27 (STUNNER!) Who’d have thunk it that Koffmead would represent for the SGV in Orange County? Nice! I don’t get it, but nice!
Glendora 30, Rowland 29 (huge 2nd half for GHS)
Bonita 35, San Dimas 14
Carson 21, Bishop Amat 13
Western 21, Los Altos 20 (had a feeling LA wouldn’t be awake for this one)
Covina 40, Sonora 14 (McDonough threw for 183 yards, ran for 177 and had 4 TDs combined).
Aram’s Glendora vs. Rowland takes: This was one of the oddest games I’ve ever seen. Glendora looked dominating at times and then looked like the first day of practice at others. But as I said above, this team has heart. Also, Glendora is 3-0 against other Tribune Top 10 teams this season. That’s pretty darn good. Maybe this team just wins ugly. It’s high school football, I guess we’re not supposed to know.
About Rowland … what can you say? Great effort, disappointing result. Are the Raiders world beaters? No. Are they one of the top teams around? Obviosuly, yes. I was impressed with QB Philip Chase and RB Rene Small. They were almost unstoppable on the option. The defense obviously has seen better days. Coach Snyder put it best by saying that having so many guys go two ways took its toll. Your quarterback isn’t supposed to be flying up and making tackles on Jordan Edmond or Zach Butler, but that’s exactly what Chase had to do.
Lastly, Joe or somebody at Rowland can maybe help with this – you guys have one of the worst hecklers I’ve ever heard. No clue who he is, but wow, very bad.
Bottom line: This was a great high school football game with the momentum changes you’d expect to see on any given Friday.
