Bishop Amat has plenty of time to figure out what it takes to compete with the Southland’s best — the Serra League is a month away and playoffs don’t start until November. But powerful Servite, the CIF-Southern Section’s two-time defending Pac-5 Division champs and current number one showed third-ranked Amat it still has a long way to go in Friday’s 49-14 victory at Cerritos College.
Repeat, a long way to go. (to continue click thread)
ARAM’S POSTGAME SHOW REWIND, CHECK IT OUT..
Servite 49, Bishop Amat 14 – No need sugar-coating it, you’ve heard of bigger, stronger, faster … well add better too. Amat’s defense looked like it has a long way to go, Servite moved in big chunks from start to finish.
Loyola 35, West Covina 7 — The Bulldogs fell behind quick and never recovered, but something tells me they will be fine once the Hacienda rolls around.
Damien 13, Diamond Ranch 6 — More important to Gano than Layton, though it wasn’t the fist-pumping result Spartans fans were hoping for. Still, a good win.
Charter Oak 35, Roosevelt 28 – Thank goodness the Trib’s number one pulled it out in the fourth quarter, otherwise it would have been a real dark night in the SGV.
Covina 42, Gladstone 0 – Absolutely no lingering effects from last week’s heart-wrenching 26-20 overtime loss to West Covina.
South Hills 61, St. Monica 0 – Are you paying attention to this? The Huskies follow with West Covina and Monrovia, and yes, I think they have a great shot in both.
Arroyo 48, Temple City 21 — Always a heated rivalry, and you have to love how the Knights have scored points in their first two wins.
Diamond Bar 40, Wilson 13 — Brahmas shake off last week’s disappointment with a solid win over the Cats.
California 41, Rowland 14 – The Raiders aren’t what they use to be, but then again, the Condors are pretty good.
Lancaster 9, Baldwin Park 7 – Could be a long, long year for the Braves, falling to 0-2 after another tough loss.
Mountain View 41, Bassett 12 — The Vikings were expected to win, but the offense is much better than expected.
Troy 35, Walnut 14 – In previous years the Mustangs may have had a shot, but not this year, and not on the road.
El Rancho 13, Northview 10 — That’s two tough losses for the Vikings in back-to-back weeks.
Nogales 36, Jurupa Hills 14 — The Nobles get in the win column, much needed to get their confidence going.
Claremont 18, Bonita 15 — The Wolfpack returned the favor after Bonita’s surprising win over them last year.
Pomona 28, Chino 24 -- The Red Devils could be the sleeper in the Valle Vista that Covina and San Dimas worry about.
Chino Hills 28, Santiago 16 – Remember, the Huskies are the Sierra League champs till someone knocks them off.
Montebello 20, Rosemead 9 — Tough loss for Koffler and the boys.
Los Altos 27, Bellflower 0 — Are you kidding me, great to see teams like Los Altos and Duarte rebound they way they have the first two weeks.
South El Monte 40, Ganesha 7 — The Lions took care of the Giants easier than most expected.
Workman 13, Keppel 2 — Nice start for the Lobos, now lets see if they can keep it going.
