Super 35: Cats and Dogs to settle Southeast No. 1; Covina leaps to No. 6; Glendora falls out top 10


Above: Let out the balloons, the Knights are in the top ten.

1. Bishop Amat (8-0) – The trap game is no longer at Loyola, it’s at home against Notre Dame. For the love of Kiefer, the Lancers can’t go undefeated at home for three years and lose this one before the big showdown at Alemany in two weeks can they?
2. West Covina (6-1) – The Bulldogs haven’t had to prove anything since sweeping Venice, Glendora, South Hills and Rowland. Looking back, those teams are struggling now. Guess what, Bonita ain’t struggling.
3. Bonita (7-0) – They do everything undefeated teams are supposed to do, play with passion, play defense, believe when their superstars are sitting on the sidelines with injures. That’s the M.O., for championships, and another reason I’m picking them against West Covina on Friday.
4. Claremont (6-1) — After beating Chino Hills and Charter Oak, might as well give them the Sierra League trophy. This is an extremely dangerous team. If they get their running game going, nobody is having a better year than their quarterback Dan Kessler. Plus, defensively, they hold their own.
5. Chino Hills (5-2) — Quietly and confidently the Huskies claw their way back, destroying Damien after losing the Sierra opener to Claremont. When Chino Hills and Charter Oak meet, that’s for second, not first.
6. Covina (7-1) — The Colts deserve a bump in the poll after taking care of Baldwin Park, showing their first-season win over West Covina was no fluke. If they don’t win the Mid-Valley this year, they have enough underclassmen to be the favorite next year.
7. Azusa (7-0) — The Aztecs are good and we know they’re good, but until they compete against the upper-echelon teams in the division, we won’t know how good until the playoffs arrive.
8. Charter Oak (4-3) – Even Chargers fans have to admit it’s tiring losing the “must games.” The Chargers are talented enough to be 7-0 or at the very least 6-1, but they’re 0-3 in the toss-up games against Glendora, Rancho Cucamonga and Claremont.
9. Diamond Ranch (4-3) — I can hear Diamond Ranch fans screaming at me for not paying attention to their four-game win streak, for not acknowledging they’re in the race for the Hacienda too. Be patient, we can only cover one Hacienda blockbuster at a time, your day is coming.
10. Arroyo (6-1) – Look who’s finally cracked the top ten. They should stay here for a while too, nobody else is coming within three touchdowns of them in the Mission Valley League.

The Rest:11. Damien (4-3), 12. Glendora (4-3), 13. San Dimas (5-3), 14. Diamond Bar (5-3), 15. Rowland (4-4), 16. South Hills (2-5), 17. Ayala (4-3), 18. Walnut (3-4), 19. Baldwin Park (2-5), 20. Rosemead (4-3), 21. La Puente (5-2), 22. Wilson (4-3), 23. Northview (2-5), 24. Pomona (3-4), 25. El Monte (3-4), 26. Gladstone (3-4), 27. Sierra Vista (5-2), 28. Ganesha (3-4), 29. Mountain View (4-3), 30. Nogales (1-6), 31. South El Monte (1-6), 32. Bassett (3-4), 33. Workman (1-6), 34. Los Altos (0-7), 35. Duarte (0-6).

    NOT GOIG TO HAPPEN MR. ROBLEDO!!! I dont care how much bad karma you throw our way! I think everybody in the SGV, without prior plans, should come on out to Kiefer Stadium and support the Lancers, alog with the Lancer Faithful, as we Battle for a win, not only for the Amat Lancers but for SGV Football!! Lets show them outsiders that our “Fishbowl” still has a “swim at your own risk” sign hanging on it!!! Go Lancers, Go Big Blue!!! Last Home game of the regular season Lancer Faithful. Let’s start brining out the Royal Blue Gear. SEA OF BLUE ON FRIDAY NIGHT! Spread the word…All LANCER FAns sport something Blue to the game!!! Let’s make the 12th man a REALITY at Kiefer Stadium!!!!

  • FredJ

    To Joe Amat or anyone, does anybody know the last time Bishop Amat started 8-0?

  • Mikey

    Freddy,

    last year Amat started 8-0 before losing to Crespi

  • EENERSports

    Amat vs. Crespi video highlights!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OXuQvRVWtw

  • Covina

    Fredj who does the all ecompassing SGV 25 ? Do you have covina ranked about Azusa and Aram have Azusa ranked over Covina? who is better ?

  • Good Question!

    Last time Amat went 8-0? It just might be the last time BA won it all in 1995. The 2001 team (Donnie McCleskey, Mike Lange, Wesley Walker) came close going 7-1 at one point and won the Del Rey League.

    But to be sure, we need an official BA Historian…like Joe Amat!

  • FredJ

    Right Mike, I meant to say 9-0 … If they win this week, I would like to know the last time an Amat team started 9-0…It would be the best start this century, but don’t know the year-by-year by records before CalPreps started posting.

  • AMAT 73

    I guess the new phraise along with quality losses is trap game this season. This is no trap game for AMAT . We know that any team in the Serra as it was in the Del Rey and Angelus before that can rise to the occasion and knock any one team off at any time.You know we have a bye next week so why even have Alemany on their mind. The team and staff will prepare for ND with nothing else on their mind this week .It is only a trap for those of you waiting for AMAT to lose this one . IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. The Men in Blue will be ready as they know this game is just as important as any other league game end in win is a must to continue on the road towards the prize. Fred you doubted AMAT last week on the road and they will show you again this week .

  • Colt74

    Amat went 9-0 in 1992 and was Number 1 ranked.

  • Frank

    This is Amats most important game as of right now. As long as they win this one they are guaranteed a playoff spot, being that Crespi and Loyola have already lost two games. beating Alameny would be nice or going 10-0. but all that matters right now is to win this game this week. A lose to Alameny would not be the end all if Amat wins this week. It would bring alot of trash talkers out but Amat can handle that. if Amat doesent win a ring this year there will be plenty of trash talking. For Amat the bigger prize is whats important. But don’t think for a second that if Alameny and Amat are both 9-0 when they meet, it will be a huge game. Still first things first, secure a playoff spot then worry about winning league.

  • Amat Fan # 1

    This is a huge game for AMAT this Friday night. We will NOT let this be our first Home Loss in three years and we will NOT let this be our first Loss of the season…This game is important because it is, in and of itself, a chance for a “W”! We play to win! We decide our own Fate at Bishop Amat! We prpare for each and every game one week at a time. We respect every opponent but we also fear no opponent.

    As Coach Jim Patricio used to say and you have found out…….Nothing takes the place of winning Gentleman, NOTHING!
    When you win, everything else falls into place so keep it going Lancers! GO BIG BLUE!

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    Wow Fred, shouldnt those BALOONS be for COVINA??? I mean you heard the public outcry and gave them what they wanted, Covina over AZUSA in the SGV TRIBUNES POLL. To tell you the truth, Im kind of glad you made the change, so I can stop hearing all the moaning and groaning about AZUSA, being ranked so high. Matter of fact you should have placed AZUSA right in front of La Puente. Reason being, AZUSA has beaten most of those teams listed lower then LP.

    So Fred, the teams you have listed underneath AZUSA in your poll, well will never know if they could win them, because theyre in completely in different leagues and Divisions. With the exceptions of the teams that are running in the Mid Valley. So this constant XFACTOR will always loom over the blog is why AZUSA is ranked so high. So Fred, I mean when the season first started, you were here hyping us up, BUT NOW youre on stating AZUSA has played NOBODY! Come on quit using AZUSA, as your personal PINTA to have these bloggers come on here banging away at it!!!

    What AZUSA has accomplished to this point of the season, is something rarely done in the Montview League. Okay AZUSA lost pretty bad last year to Bell Gardens, struggle with Ontario Christian and barely pulled it off in the last minute, then had a rough time with Gaberlino. Now mind you these schools are contracted to play each other for two years.

    What does AZUSA do this year, but go to Bell Gardens house and put up 48 points in their home stadium! Well you know the rest of story to this point!!! I have yet to see one blogger from BG, OC say anything because they all vanished. Oh yes, maybe we should have play West Covina so we could here Fred state, BUT THEY BEAT WEST COVINA! Maybe we would have kept our place in FREDS BIG 35 POLL!

    AZUSA FOOTBALL

    p.s.

    Go bang on another PINTA!

  • Colt74

    I vote for AZUSA into the Valle Vista and we’ll give give you Pomona, 10 cases of 4 Loko and a coupon for 2 free meals at Hometown Buffet ( Not valid on Sat/Sun and only valid with purchase of a drink ).

    Ok CIF…let’s get started on that…

    I really think it would be a good fit both ways.

  • $Colts baby$

    AZTEC PRIDE what happens when your team gets the boot in the second round like they do every year?
    are you going to continue to hype them up, bloggers like you make we wish that Azusa goes 10-0 and loses first round in the playoffs. You guys dont play anyone and you want all this respect. Tell me AZTEC PRIDE what team in the top 10 can Azusa beat???????

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    $COLTS BABY$;

    I mean how much HUMBLE PIE do you want me to eat??? I mean what part of the message to Fred, did you not GET??? I just told Fred, he should have placed AZUSA right before La Puente??? HELLOOOOOO….

    By the way you’re wrong on getting the boot in the second round, and it was the THIRD ROUND my $ DOLLAR SIGN Colt fan, last season.

    By the way $COLT$, I think you should do a little research on when your team gets the boot in the playoffs! Like the first round! LOL…

    Well it’s been fun here at work, and people don’t let the AZTEC PRIDE get to you because he speaks the TRUTH, and the truth shall set you free!!! Man i’m getting deep, like Colt74! hahahahah…

  • just another guy in the sgv

    $Colts baby$- you need to relax on putting teams down that have owned u the last two years yes owned not beat but OWNED YOU! talk as much as you want but azusa is a very good football team.. yes you beat west covina but if u guys were to play tommorrow they would crush you! took you to lighty in week 1 so there u have a good win… congrats on winning the valle vista tho. i am not an azusa fan so i hope you guys do well in te playoffs i just state the facts

    colt 74- haha very rich but idk if cif would be ready to change leagues around again lol

    fred- you need to figure out who you like and stick to it.. there is no way co should be ranked that low sorry and dr to be ranked that high.. covina should not be above azusa until they prove they can stick with them and im not mad about arroyo breaking the top ten other than those flaws i agree wit the top ten somewat.. but i still think it should be Amat 1 and 2 then whoever else should be 3 Amat holds the sgv to the highest no matter how many ppl hate on them they save the sgv !!!! good luck to all teams!!!!!! GO SGV GO!!!!

  • Knights42

    Nice,

    Love the picture of the Knights running out to kick some Panther-ass. Got a chance to see Arroyo play last Friday and enjoyed the game, good luck the rest of the year. Go ARROYO, play hard-nose Arroyo football and keep working.

  • Over Rated….

    Azusa is a good team but they’re not that good. If LP would have just kept doing what they’re doing in the first quarter they could have upseted. But nope too many turnovers and to a team like azusa you cant do that. You cant turn the ball over to good teams. I say Azusa should be 12-16 before BP. But i think covina is a better team. Just because azusa beat them last year doesnt mean anything a new year different team. A better team. I wouldnt be surprised if covina takes it. But azusa should represent the montview and go deep into the playoffs. And show everyone the montview league is no pushover. Go Azusa and La Puente represent well!!

  • The Guru

    Im sorry but Azusa will never hang with West Co… Let alone COVINA, SAN DIMAS, MONROVIA, OR WHITTER CHRISTAN so shutup and deal with it… and keep talking next year you guys play san dimas first so they can bang on you pinta bright and early….

  • Buster Posey

    Truth is the Mid-Valley is a watered down division. Good they play against smaller schools but whatever happen to traveling outside of the 626 to win a championship.

  • cov80

    congrats COVINA keep it going first pomona then sd one game at a time all the way to the playoffs

  • A Tale of Two Teams

    Last year Covina and Wilson both started with many sophomores, now they are juniors

    Covina ended the 2009 season with a Calpreps rating of -3.5 Wilson had a -4.7

    Covina beat Wilson last year 21-17 in a very close and competitive game – and in fact Wilson scored a TD late in the 4th with the go ahead lead but was called back because of an away from the ball penalty

    this year Covina has a 7-1 record 20.9 rating and has beaten WCo and BPark // Wilson has a 4.6 rating and is 4-3 with a close win against El Monte (El Monte actually lost the game the Cats didnt win it) and they were beaten by Northview

    Why the disparity??
    What is so different this year than last??
    Why is Covina much better and Wilson only marginally better??
    makes you wonder

  • 1998

    Amat was 9-0 going into the Loyola game. Game finished in a 7-7 tie.

  • Colt74

    A Tale of Two Teams,

    Simple…..

    1. Our parents don’t sit in the stands and get up a chant of ” REFS SUCK”
    2. Our parents are not on this blog having a war of who’s better #12 or #7.
    3. Our parents are not disrespecting the kids, the coaches, and the school in every thread going. I’m surprised it has not carried over to the vollyball threads………..yet.
    4. We believe in our coaches…win or lose.
    5. See number 4
    6. Once you think you can lose…you’ve already lost.

    It’s only a matter of time before an infection left untreated can get out of hand. There is no shot that can fix what you guys have done to yourselves.

  • Colt74

    Wilson and Los Altos suffer from the same disease.
    It’s called “Parentsheadstoobigitis”

    It’s a common disease characterized whereas the parents start thinking they are the head coach and they know whats best for their team. Advanced stages of the disease are shown with frequent infighting in public and ultimately with a sudden offset of threats about how they are going to take their checkbooks and go home if they are not coddled.

    the only cure for such a disease is :

    1. Anal-Cranial Separation
    2. Super-gluing of the lips together
    3. Prozac

    We think that the coaches stink and they came from a school in covina which is now winning games.Head coach stinks 0-17. It is not the parents or kids. Playing favorites is a disease perfected by ex NV coaches that enjoy to lose.

  • Amat Honk

    Why all the “NEED” to hate on Azusa Football? Just because they have one Super Fan who will defend his team Tooth and Nail? Last I checked they were in the SGV and their record is pretty impressive. Celebrate it! We have some good football going on right now. Bonita HS is a good example too. I really don’t understand why some people get their kicks off ripping on High School Kids who are enjoying the time of their life years and winning at football? Sure there will be rivalries but it should be school spirit stuff not mean hearted kid/player/coach bashing, right? Some of you clowns really don’t get it. Keep running it Azusa, Bonita, W. Covina, Covina and of course my Lancers! There is some really good football goin on in the SGValley and it’s a shame that some of you are really missing the boat (and more importantly…the point of High School sports)! Go Big Blue!

  • LA Loyal

    Colt74,
    Nicely said. You know I kind of stayed off of the blogs for a while because of the embarrassment I felt listening to all of the negativity and crying done by my fellow Hacienda Heights community. I think you are exactly right. When someone goes and exploits all of their problems and frustrations to the public, it becomes redundant and boring.

    I wish people had some class when coming onto these blogs. However, I have come to find out that when people aren’t happy with their lives, they just aren’t happy with their lives.

    I would like to say that there are LA parents who, although frustrated, are trying to get through the season with a positive feeling…for the sake of our children. Go Conquerors! Thanks again for the diagnosis. :)

    Saturday Morning Quarterback: Azusa gets its respect, San Antonio goes 3-0, Northview, San Dimas, Rosemead, COak and DRanch win; Amat goes down swinging
    By Fred Robledo on November 21, 2008 8:23 AM.
    Above: Azusa’s Rauley Zaragosa had four INT’s in the Aztecs’ 27-6 win over Covina.

    Thoughts from Press Row
    I don’t know how far Azusa’s going to go, but it’s refreshing to watch a group of neighborhood kids restore the pride. It’s one thing to advance to the quarters at a traditional powerhouse, but another entirely when you do something a generation before you could not. To all those players who gave me a hard time on the sidelines for picking Covina, it’s your moment, enjoy it…..

  • dlop

    To be honest, I don’t think arroyo is that great. I went to the game last Friday, and I wasn’t impressed at all. They’re ranked too high in cif and if anything, West Covina deserves a higher spot. Arroyo will see an early exit during the playoff’s, their weak schedule and weak league prepares them for nothing!

  • AMAT 73

    What the hell is going on here. Why is everyone picking on my buddy AZTEC PRIDE. The man is 100% behind Aztec football and yes he may get a little wild at times but so what. He backs his team and they are taking care of business and on a pretty good run . History is good, please explain your meaning of big boy football . You kind of lost me on that one when you mentioned SD in the same sentence . Are you really saying SD plays big boy ball football ?

  • DRanchhhh

    All of you big mouths slamming Azusa,

    I’ll respond the same way a monrovia fan responding to me when my fingers did to much wolfing on the blog:

    Azusa has beat everyone on their schedule thus far, have you??

    They are undefeated, NO MATTER how you look at it. Until they are canned, don’t talk!!

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    The Calvary showed up! Thanks for the support AMAT 73 and DRanchhh. Yes I know I can be over the top at times and I have to learn to control my PASSION for the GAME. Or take it easy on the coffee. LOL…

    It would be great if their would be a few more bloggers from AZUSA on here with some input. I know my moniker is always on here and must get on these other bloggers nerves, but oh well, that’s what it’s all about! You know how it is, the small guy always gets picked on! hahahah…

    AMAT 73, check out CITRUS COLLEGE.COM and click on athletics, then click on football. Go to the story about SECOND HALF WOES KEEP WINLESS IN CONFERENCE. Well the picture of that player is my boy, Steven A.#47, explayer from AZUSA and had a great game on Saturday. Citrus football is having a very rough season.

    The high school season is getting very intresting and BA,DR,AZ and Covina is getting real intresting! Bishop Amat is winning the BIG BOYS SCHOOLS! LOL…

  • Dan

    Say what you want about Azusa’s schedule, but there is a score on there that begs for attention, it’s the score of “Azusa 48 Bell Gardens 0″. I’m not so sure any other team in the Mid valley is capable of doing that to Bell Gardens. El Rancho couldn’t do it, Schurr couldn’t do it, Cantwell could not either. Azusa
    looks every bit as qualified to take that division as any other team in the Mid Valley.

    Azusa, is having a great year. In order to be classified as a great team this year, they are going to have to beat someone real. They are going to have to wait until playoffs to have a signature win. That could be dangerous. Virtually every team in the Secound round will be good enough to beat anyone.
    The win against bell gardens was legit. It does not matter if any other team in the mid valley can shut out bell gardens. Other teams in the mid valley have played and/or beaten upper division schools, who are better than Bell gardens. With the almont edition to the division Bell gardens will be a tough draw, and with schurr in mix, it will be interesting…Also With a possible 3 way tie in the Valle Vista or even if Covina wins outright, BP is second place and San Dimas gets in the playoffs as a at large bid. That means SD would be a low seed in the playoffs, and will play a top team in the first. Last season the Montview#1 Azusa played the Valley Vista #3 Covina..if CIF does this again. San Dimas plays Azusa in first round. But since Azusa is#1 overall this shouldn’t happen. But Ive seen stranger things. Monrovia has already played SD, Covina has too…Arroyo or Azusa may get screwed.Cif may want to punish them for weak preseason schedules and or weak league competition. I am not sure how things will match up, but this is just a mock secound round to display how hard the Midvalley is going to be…So All teams better strap it up.

    Possible Second round matchups

    1.Azusa(league Champ) vs 6.San Dimas (loss to Covina may match up agianst Azusa or Arroyo in 1st round)
    2.Monrovia(league Champ) vs 11.Baldwin Park(appearence depends on league Standing and 1st rd draw)
    3.Arroyo(league Champ) vs 9.Schurr(league Champ)or Valley Christian(depends on 1st rd Draw)
    4.Whittier Christian(league Champ) vs 5.Covina(league Champ)

  • top ten

    The CIF rankings can sometime be bias..Covina is top 3 for sure…
    Fred in you top ten that Azusa-Covina ranking can go either way…
    on one hand Covina has beaten West Co and BP and are in the driver seat for the Valle Vista. On the other hand if they lose to San Dimas, then Azusa gets the nod in your final rankings. Azusa is great, they just don’t have a game that matter left on their schedule. Plus they have 5-6 teams in their league ranked below the top 25. They just can’t jump anyone at this point, unless covina losses.

    ***Top Games the will Affect Rankings***
    Covina vs San Dimas…This is for the valle vista title(3 way tie of Covina Out right)Pick:San Dimas

    Valley Christian vs Whittier Christian
    (This is for the Olympic league title)pick: Whittier Chirstian

    Now I have my midvalley rankings like this..

    If covina beats San Dimas…

    1.Covina
    2.Azusa
    3.Monrovia
    4.Whittier Christian
    5.Arroyo
    6.Valley Christian
    7.Schurr
    8.Villiage Christian
    9.Baldwin Park
    10.San Dimas

    If Covina losses to San Dimas

    1.Azusa
    2.Monrovia
    3.Whittier Christian
    4.Arroyo
    5.San Dimas
    6.Covina
    7.Valley Christian
    8.Schurr
    9.Baldwin Park
    10.Villiage Christian

    Ok Fellas,

    I’m on board with you AZTEC. Your boys have met every challenge that has been put infront of them and they still haven’t lost. No one can argue that fact. I know there are at least 35 teams that would give their left n… to be 8-0 right now. How many of us can say that we have ever been part of a team that went undefeated? The answer is about 98% of us who are former athletes or coaches can’t say that. So tell your boys to keep making the city of Azusa proud of their team.

  • Kool Aid is bad for you!

    SGV for 30…What task are talking about? A task would be a Covina vs BP or San Dimas…Or Monrovia vs San Dimas…better yet Arroyo vs Rosemead..I am sure the top 20 teams would be undefeated with the schedule you played. Well…You know what happens when you drink too much Kool aid…you get that sugar rush, then you crash…Undefeated is 14-0.That means a Midvalley title. Are you betting that Azusa, will win the title? I don’t know if I would drink that Kool Aid. But hey time will tell, This is best team in Azusa history by far. Good luck!

    Kool Aide is bad for you:

    Dude Kool Aide is better for that Haterade. Dude take a look at the big picture. When those kids look back in 20 years do you think they are going to say Yea we were undefeated but we didn’t play anyone for 10 weeks. Why not let Azusa enjoy their season. How man of us can say that our team was undefeated in high school? Would they beat the teams ranked above them? I don’t know. But how cool would it be for them to go 14-0 and win a CIF Championship?

    SGV430 Outtt!!

  • Honest observation….

    why do people call it hating when someone states something true? I see people on here saying that Azusa has not played anyone…Is it not true? Everyone knows its true, so its not hating. Azusa knows that its true, but they can use that as fuel and motivation to show the sgv that is not hype. Lots of people can say they went 10-0, or 13-1 if you are holding the trophy on dec 12th…that’s what counts…everything else is a “we could have”. I know this, I almost won it all…

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
