Aram thoughts on Amat/St. Francis: I think because St. Francis doesn’t carry the same name as Hart or Valencia or Loyola, Amat fans don’t realize just how GOOD of a WIN last night was. Forget about St. Francis being the Pasadena Star-News’ top-ranked team and consider that they’re the No. 1-ranked team in the Western Division. They were undefeated and are probably going to go on and have a great season. Amat fans should not just sit there and say “That’s great, we just beat one of the Valley’s top teams.” You guys did do that, but you also beat one of the Southland’s better teams and when was the last time (outside of league) you were able to say that? The St. Paul and Rancho wins are nice, but this one is on another level and it came without Amat being heatlhy.
About the final play – Dorian Wells scored. I was standing right there and the ball hit the pylon (barely) and was momentarily across the goal line. I am telling you, I was standing RIGHT THERE. When it happened, my brain in a split second thought “Did the ref just see what I saw?” and when he signaled TD, it was obvious he had. It doesn’t matter that Wells basically ended up out of bounds and on the wrong side of the goal line. If you’ve watched any kind of football on TV, you know that only one sliver of the ball has to cross the line or touch the pylon and it’s a score. It was a very very very close play, but he did score.

WARNING: If you’re a Los Altos or West Covina fan, it’s time to get worried.

The Weekly Aaron Harris OVER/UNDER game …

He’s burned more prognosticators this season than the Dallas Cowboys.

NOTE: I was fired this week by the Bellagio for setting bad lines. They said I over did it and made all of my numbers high. I responded by finding another job down the street at the Silver Slipper and here I am back with another high number. Go “under” … I dare ya.

This week’s OVER/UNDER vs San Dimas: 175 1/2 yards

Week 1: 133 yards vs. Azusa UNDER
Week 2: 139 yards vs. West Covina OVER
Week 3: 156 yards vs. Sierra Vista UNDER
Week 4: 192 yards vs. El Monte UNDER
Week 5: 170 yards vs. Glenn UNDER

Cory Lidle, former South Hills baseball standout, killed in NYC plane crash …


Lidle played under legendary Huskies coach Jim Bastion and graduated in 1990. Bastion told former Tribune prep sports editor and current managing editor Steve Hunt that Jason Giambi, also a former South Hills standout, called him today at 1:30 p.m. to report the sad news. Lidle was a Tribune All-Area selection in 1990.

Much will be determined in these three games …

Let me put it to you like this: Consider what the losers of these three games faces.

Glendora/Damien: This one is real simple, the loser will be 0-1 in league with games left against Chino and Chino Hills.

Bonita/Wilson loser: Still has Miramonte League games left against Charter Oak and Los Altos, not to mention DIamond Ranch. Odds are the loser of this one will miss the postseason, just like the past four seasons.

St. Francis/Amat loser: If it’s Amat, the Lancers fans who still hang their hats on the fact that Amat doesn’t lose to SGV competition will be completely silenced. As things currently stand, that and history is all Amat fans have. If it’s St. Francis, the No. 1-ranking in the Western Division is gone and probably Dominguez’s for the rest of the season.

Don’t fool yourself. This weekend will go a long way in determining the playoff fates of many teams. It’s here, boys. High stakes football is here!
