Steve and I will go head-to-head throughout the season. Here is our updated records on the Tribskin Pick’em thread.
Robledo: Last week/Total: 13-4/74-25
Ramirez: Last week/Total: 11-10/64-35
Last Week: Neither of us were bold enough to take Bishop Amat over St. Bonny’s, but the difference was the Montview league, I went 3-0 and Stevie went 0-3. That has stretched my lead over Ramirez to ten, the biggest difference in our three years doing this. We also both missed taking Mountain View over Keppel and Rosemead over Temple City.
This week: The Smudge pot game between San Dimas and Bonita takes center stage, and though I expect it to be closer than last year’s Saints blowout, I’m still taking the Saints in a close one at home. Charter Oak faces a very formidable opponent in Etiwanda, whose only loss is to Norco. Calpreps takes the Chargers by a touchdown, which sounds about right. Azusa and La Puente are both 4-1. Though Workman will have something to say about it, the winner has the inside track toward the league title. Take La Puente, they’re playing too well at the moment. On Saturday the entire Valley can watch Bishop Amat vs. Diamond Ranch at Ganesha. It’s a trap game for the Lancers. Diamond Ranch has them just where they want them, on a high coming off the big win over St. Bonny. Bishop isn’t good enough to win on just talent alone, so expect another tight one, but another Lancers victory.
