Softball: West Covina beats Rowland 2-1 on a disputed call; Bonita hard to figure out, loses swagger in 5-4 loss to Charter Oak

West Covina 2, Rowland 1: Even West Covina High School softball coach Dan Woodward had to tip his hat at the strategy, Rowland opting to throw seldom-used freshman pitcher Esperanza Sanchez instead of reliable junior Laura Banuelos in Thursday’s San Antonio League game that would give the winner control of its own destiny toward a San Antonio League title.

Charter Oak 5, Bonita 4: The Charter Oak softball team has shown this season that it can beat, and lose to, anyone on its schedule. The Chargers proved it Thursday. Taylor Hawkins’ RBI single scored Jayme Chesler from second base in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Charter Oak a 5-4 victory over Bonita in a Miramonte League game.

    Fred,
    This is directed to you Im not sure what Stevo was doing seem to me his head was a little to far up his I phone or something like that. Why Wurst was taken out of the game is just plain retarded she really only made one bad pitch.. Even more stupid is why she wasnt brought back in after Bonita came back. With her ERA I would live and die with this kid on the mound. To top it all off if Wurst is pitching they could have ran for her at third scoring the go ahead run on a ground ball that was hit to first base. Last but not least with first base open the batter up in the 7th inning should never have received that good of a pitch its the runner at second that can beat you not at first. Im afraid to tell you but looks like to me if Carlson doesnt take his team back and start learning the game in a hurry the season for the Bearcats is all but over. The Sierra league along with the OC teams should run the table and meet in the final four DIII.

    Bonitas Woes

    They bunt when you need to hit
    They hit when you need to bunt
    They steal or hit and run when you shouldnt
    They don’t steal when they should.
    They pitch calling is a joke change up after change up after change up after change up…..(Daddy ball calling pitches).

    They pitch to batter’s that they shouldnt pitch to.
    Game management and substitutions are horrible.

    PS. Keep yelling at the kids coach and making them cry when the problem is staring you in the face.

  • kh

    you can get a job app. in the school district office. or join o.f. dad and become roving coach ,for that job will not need to go to district office,just check in with the man.mr.softball.
    go bearcats

  • Appreciate what we have while we still have it-

    High school coaches are usually teachers, I’m pretty sure they weren’t dreaming of being Girls Softball coaches all their lives. In these times, we better be thankful 1)someone will step up and coach, 2)districts still have money for athletics of any type.

    I bet cathy could kick his azzz

  • fred meally

    These are the issues that i brought up at the beginning of the season, You have one dominant pitcher, a few scattered bats, crazy coaching, overrated players who struggle against any decent pitching. A dominant pitcher and a team in chaos that will win the easy games but, they will not survive past the first round of CIF. The problem starts at the top.

  • charter oak

    i have a soundbite on this…”im still butthurt from gettin beat by charter oak, give me a break lady”

  • great game

    4-30-10 St. Lucy’s beat Ayala and J. Hall 4-3. Bottom of seventh and two outs, St. Lucy’s trailing 3-1, M. Jimenez doubles and A. Carter scores, 3-2. D. Mavridis singles M. Jimenez to 3rd and advances to second on the throw home. O’Toole doubles M. Jimenez and D. Mavridis home for the win.

    Fred, you missed another good game.

  • Easy there mom…

    Motherhen,

    Still not happy. What do you parents at BHS have to complain about..? Oh, your kid isn’t getting the pitching time she deserves…the coach doesn’t pay enough attention to your DD..You guys have 1 loss in league! And that league isn’t a cake walk either. If your kid would have put 1/10Th of the time and work CW has, maybe you and your selfish kid wouldn’t be whining and crying and disrespecting the coach. Stay in the outfield with the other D..head.

  • motherhen

    Easy there mom…
    Well well well if and thats a big if I had children no way would they play for Bonita. Sorry just another co fan waiting for the good old days to return. I never once said a bad thing about CW if anything I gave her a compliment and coaches are free game especially when they do the dumbest of things. I wonder why CW was taken out in the first place word is daddy didnt want her to get the loss talk about being selfish.

    This has to be the dumbest of quotes Ive heard all year.

  • got interesting

    Charter Oak over Bonita CIF Div III #3

    Chino Hills over Glendora CIF Div III #2

  • softballguru

    Fred,
    Like the Guru predicted in the pre-season poll St Lucy’s is a team on the rise. They have some good wins this season but the real play comes next year and the year after. When the guru speaks people need to listen.

  • Easy there mom

    Motherhen,

    In your first post, you talked and spoke like you were in the BHS dugout everygame. Now, your not even a parent and you watch CO games. What a tool…Stand up or shut up.

  • motherhen

    Easy there mom
    Wow I was only fishing with that one sounds like I struck a nerve of truth. With out a dog in this fight to me the ball is in your court and the standing up needs to be done by you. One more thing before you give yourself a nose bleed and a melt down I would look closely in the mirror and think about your own issues. I truly wish both teams good luck although it looks like the Chargers have the edge going into the post season and the Bearcats are feeling the drama bug my sources tell me its less practice and more tears.

  • what?

    motherhen..

    No dog in the fight yet you have sources? Some serious issues yourself there, motherhen..

  • rodney king

    CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? Bonita stop the drama go back to your basic fundamentals of Team first and hard work. You started the season with a purpose, regain that purpose. Seniors, leave something behind that you can be proud of. A CIF TITLE. Lead by your actions not your words. Stay focused. Be positive. Good Luck.

  • Robert K

    Bonita has Senioritis, it will resolve itself after this year, unfortunately without CW, they will have a solid nucleus with no pitching or coaching

  • blastfromthepast

    Motherhen,
    Better yet you could sit in the dugout with the other senior parents Lol.

  • wherearethowrobertk

    Robert K,,,

    Where have you been? the blogs have been rather boring since you left.

  • who cares

    Wow.

    You must be kidding! The parents are at it again! Lets see Bonita hasn’t won a league in who knows when, they played on crappy fields in the past, not that they are much better, but better they are! And the school has been riddled with selfish, think that they know everything about softball, can’t pay their spirit pak or dues, but want to express themself on a blog (Parents). And some of the parents actually think that because they got lucky at a western nationals and respectfully did well at 16u Nationals makes him the coach of the decade. Coaching is caring, it is giving of your time, not taking the deserving credit away from the kids. Coaching is staying away from the light and shedding the light on the kids who actually played the game. But more importantly is the job of a PARENT. Robert K, YOU HAVE FAILED AT THIS! Sorry for that! For the rest of the BHS Parents (Wendy / Brian) Shut up and grow up and watch your girls play………. And sure there will be some sort of response, but please spare us all!

  • oh hell nahh!

    —who cares

    why are you soo quick to say that bonita isnt much better than they were?!?! thats funny. . . lets look at their overall record. . . shall we?

    19-3-1 overall

    8-1 in league

    now after seeing that how can you say that they arent that much better than their fields? you are just another hypocrite who doesnt have a clue and wants to have their incorrect statement out there and to single out bonita parents is just rude and inconsiderate!! they have done nothing wrong and are always supportive even through bonita’s tough losses. why dont you go back to dissing other teams and leave bonita alone you have no right to say that about their program.

  • Robert K

    Who cares,

    Sorry but, the wrong Robert K, although I have missed some of the fantastic parents that we have gotten to know over the years, I don’t miss this. I have decide that if I have a problem, I will go to the person that I have a problem with. I actually think that this is a pretty good team, they have the most solid pitcher around and some good bats. Who knnows how it will play out, I hate to dissapoint you old school parents hoping I was causing problems, someone is trying to stir the pot
    SORRY

  • Ayalaeatsthecats

    Who cares

    Its obvious you care and blasting your own Bonita parents wow did you really have to go there. Hey Robert k They call it senioritis but its more like senior parentitis. No doubt the proof is in the pudding daddy ball divas(Cliff/John)and once again the sierra league will send you home with your tail between your legs. Robert K you have succeeded pat on the back my friend BHS will fall apart as always. KC sorry for you but the pot is already stirred a nice effort 19-3-1 but somethings never change. Party on Shrek and Yoda thought that was you panic mode on so soon? your days are numbered no more weak ass miramonte foe’s its time to play with the big dogs Bonita one and done. Later fool.

  • what a coach

    Good job Bonita coach, way to lose the game for the girls, you idiot. Practice bunting for three practices and dont even know when to have your girls bunt, when they need it. Cant handle it when your girls are asking WHY. Get your head out of your ass SOON or your not going anywhere

  • what a coach

    What a game. Once again Bonita coach makes an ass out of himself.

  • what a coach

    What a game. Once again Bonita coach makes an ass out of himself.It cant get any better.

  • laughing at BHS

    I am busting up at you BHS parents. Bonita softball has ridden on the coat tail of your pitcher all season. Your hitting has not been phenomenal and now you want to blame the losses on the coach only? I’m sure the girls aren’t feeling great about how their idiotic parents are acting either.

  • Looking and Observing Said:

    To All The Bad Seed Parents – you know who you are because you are being named in these blogs, how embarrassing! You truly are not a good example to these girls let alone your own. I would sure hope all of you were raised with Respect, because you all have lost it in your Old Age and need to find it again! As an individual, who is observing and listening what is being said about the Program and Coach KC, is absolutely rediculous! Just stop and remember, where this program was and where it is today, Tremendous Difference – Again, Thanks Coach KC. For a man who carries a Full Time Job, is a High School Coach, Travelball Coach, College Recruiter and has a Family, to be called an idiot and an ass according to these blogs, Shame on you people! Are you back in Middle School? Coach KC has brought this program a long ways. Let me refresh all of your corrupted memory of who appointed Coach KS to this position, “Administration”. He is here for obvious reasons. So with this being said, if anyone of you have a Heart or would like to put on some bigger pants and apologize to Coach KC face to face for your senseless comments and maybe Thank him for taking the time for the girls and this program would be nice, but again you all would rather hide behind this blog and back stab each other and even your own parents who you have to see on a weekly basis (Heartless/Spineless). Again Coach KC, Thanks for Having a BIG HEART, having broad shoulders and having to put up with the ignorant (Bonita) Parents.

  • outsidelookingin

    Shameless, pitiful parents. BHS had a horrible staff in place. KC took over that program and instilled school pride and heart. The gutless parents who have just blasted the coach and his program should be embarrassed. We know that will never happen.
