Thursday Final: Bishop Amat rallies again, holds off Venice 38-35; South Hills beats Los Osos in shocker, 31-28 and San Dimas rolls 42-6

By Fred J. Robledo, Staff Writer
Bishop Amat started slow again, but followed the same script, rallying from 14 points down to post a 38-35 victory on the road at Venice Thursday behind another stellar performance from running back Jalen Moore, and a couple reverse touchdown runs from Adam Sanchez.
Moore was a workhorse, carrying it 37 times for 219 yards and three touchdowns, and Sanchez scored on two reverses, a 17 yard TD that gave Amat an early 7-0 lead, and a key 48-yard TD run early in the third quarter that tied the score, 21-21, after the Lancers trailed 21-7 midway through the second quarter. Amat, ranked fifth in the CIF-SS Pac-5 Division, improved to 5-1 while Venice dropped to 1-4.

Thursday’s results
Game story: San Dimas 42, Nogales 6 — The Saints impressed Aram so much that he wrote, “they might be the best team in the division RIGHT NOW.” Looks like the Saints and Aram’s opinion of them have made a dramatic turnaround since the season opener.
Game story: South Hills 31, Los Osos 28 — Los Osos lost to undefeated Orange Lutheran by only two touchdowns, and lost to Vista Murrieta by only nine points, the same team that beat Crespi by 18. When you mention Amat, Charter Oak, West Covina as the area’s top three, the Huskies aren’t too far back. I heard QB Danny Sheehan took care of business and kicked the game-winning 27-yard field goal with 10 seconds left, but the fact is the Huskies won without their starting QB Vincent Hernandez, who played receiver because of his injured shoulder. So you tell us, who do you like next week, Charter Oak or South Hills?
Game story: Bishop Amat 38, Venice 35 –With the advantage Amat has with Jalen Moore, who finished with 219 yards and three touchdowns, it shouldn’t be this close. Amat can score, they scored last year and they’re scoring this year. But if they don’t start getting more three-and-outs, more pressure on the QB and better push off the line, they’ll have a tougher time coming back against teams in the Serra. It’s finally here, defending champ Alemany in town next week.


“We can’t keep doing that,” Moore said of the slow starts. “I don’t know why it takes us so long, but the teams only get better from here. We need to start better and not put so much pressure on ourselves.”

Alex Gutierrez gave Amat its first lead of the second half on a 24-yard field goal to go up 24-21, two minutes into a wild fourth quarter.

The Lancers got a break when a tipped pass was picked off by Rio Ruiz and returned to the Venice 20. A few plays later, Moore scored his second touchdown, plowing in from a yard out and 31-21 lead with 7:42 left.

Venice receiver Gabriel Marks, who had seven receptions for 150 yards, caught a 65-yard pass for a touchdown that gave the Gondoliers life again, trailing 31-28 with 7:04 left.
But Moore came through in the final minutes, converting two big fourth-down runs and finishing the drive with a one-yard TD, his third of the night to stretch the Lancers’ lead to 38-28 with 2:11 left.

Venice scored again late on Marks’ 25-yard touchdown reception with 1:19 left, but the Lancers were able to hold it from there.

Marks scored three touchdowns, two receptions and one on a spectacular 89-yard run.

“They scored a lot of points,” Amat coach Steve Hagerty said. “We have to get better defensively and correct the mistakes we’re making. Hopefully that happens soon.”

Trailing 7-0, the Gondoliers came right back, forcing Amat offside on fourth and short to keep their drive alive, marching 80 yards on 15 plays capped by Lamar Moody’s one-yard touchdown to tie the score, 7-7.

An Amat three-and-out gave the Gondoliers good field position at the Lancers’ 40, and they marched again.

After quarterback Alexander Diamont converted a 20-yard pass to Marks to the five, Moody took it in two plays later, scoring from a yard again for a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter.

With Venice pinned on its own 11 facing third-and-nine, Marks took the ball out of the wildcat, shook a tackler and was gone up the left side, racing 89-yards for a touchdown and 21-7 lead.

Fortunately for the Lancers, they were able to trim the Gondos’ lead in half at the break.

Ruiz kept the drive alive, converting two third-and-long passes — a 14-yard pass to Dionza Blue, and a 14-yard pass to Joseph Cook. That set up Moore’s 5 yard touchdown with 36 seconds left in the half to trim Venice’s lead to 21-14.

    Fred are you going to cover light the amat game Thursday?
    that would b good if u do that especially its a Thursday game.

  • SaintsR4real

    Aram,
    if you’re really gonna cover for the Saints game.
    Get ready for “The Greatest Show on Earth”!

    No hard feelings, but please call it as you see it.

  • FredJ

    Not coveritlive, but check the thread, mike the cousin will tweet updates and keep you informed…

  • SaintsR4real

    It’s great when you could put a so-called expert in his place.

    “In the Huddle” Arams said : Valle Vista predictions 8/3/11
    2. San Dimas — Usually I would call what San Dimas went through last season a transition year after the CIF title, but I can’t do that. I don’t think this year’s team is better. There isn’t a beast on the line like Allen Brown. There isn’t a scary receiver like Kevin Kolbeck. The running backs lost a lot of production, too. But, the Saints are to a place where the systems and the coaching keep the program afloat even in years when the talent isn’t lofty. That would be this season. San Dimas should give plenty of defense problems with its offense. Having an experience QB in Shawn Kennedy helps quite a
    bit. All-purpose threat Dillon Corona should have his best season yet. The defense, at least looks-wise this summer, still figures to be formidable.
    Predicted record: 6-4 overall, 5-1 in league.

  • Relentless D

    Fred, you have been picking South Hills but not this week , what’s up with that? You made a bad pick. Thanks Aram for believing in SH.

    Tom,
    Glad you got to relax and do something you enjoy. Lord knows after what you have to put up with for us you deserved it.

    Here’s an article from the Venice Patch. From the looks of it, I’m picking Venice to win.

    Another week, another ranked opponent to prepare for.

    That’s the situation facing Venice High football coach Angelo Gasca and his battle-tested team, which finishes off its brutal nonleague schedule at home Thursday night against Bishop Amat.

    “We’re ready to go, and it’s another chance to play a quality opponent,” Gasca said Wednesday. “It rained today, and Saturday was SAT testing. It’s a short week, but it is for them, too.”

    The Gondos (1-3) are still smarting from consecutive losses to three highly-ranked teams from West Hills, La Canada, and La Mesa and would like nothing better than to enter Western League play with momentum by knocking off the Lancers, ranked fifth in the CIF Southern Section’s highest division, the Pac-5.

    “We’ve been a pretty good three-quarter team but we need to play well for four quarters,” Gasca said. “Part of that is because we haven’t had our usual depth because of all the injuries.”

    Injuries at key positions have made finishing strong a problem for Venice, which held halftime leads against both St. Francis and Helix. Last week, Helix outscored the Gondos 28-3 over the final two quarters of its 42-20 win. The Highlanders are ranked No. 1 in Division II in the San Diego Section.

    Wide receiver Gabe Marks, who is headed for Southern Methodist University, had six catches for 107 yards and also scored on a 67-yard interception return against Helix. Sophomore quarterback Alex Diamont completed 16 of 34 passes for 241 yards but also threw three interceptions. He will take the majority of snaps again as senior Dean Sarabia is getting more and more comfortable at middle linebacker.

    For the second straight game Daniel Magallanes will be the defensive left tackle, where he played all last year. Senior Chris Solis will play nosetackle, Tayon Blockmon goes back to linebacker and linemen Ricardo Navarro, Jonathan Jaimes-Costilla, Nicholas Rodriguez and Marcus Anderson will come off the bench, giving the Gondos depth they haven’t had for three weeks.

    “When guys are out of position or playing longer than they should there’s a ripple effect,” Gasca said. “Now we have six or seven players that we can roll through that puts us back where we belong.”

    Kicker McLean Emmanuel booted a 48-yard field goal to give Venice its first lead, 17-14, in the second quarter of last Friday’s game against Helix and the kick is believed to be a school record.

    Jung Lee made a 47-yarder in 1977 and Gasca remembers it vividly because he was the holder.

    “It was at Venice, we were going in the same direction and I held for that kick,” Gasca recalled. “We’d say always kick away from the beach because it’s downhill. He missed a 57-yarder by two feet the very next week. He had some leg. I don’t remember one longer than 47 until McLean. He may be the best we’ve had and he’s still only a junior. He’s potentially a Division I player.”

    Gasca went on to hold for Lee at Santa Monica College in 1978 and 1979 when the Korean set the California Community College record for most career field goals (since broken).

    The latest challenge for the Gondos will be slowing down a ground attack that is averaging 215 yards per game. Bishop Amat is led by senior tailback Jalen Moore (88 carries for 814 yards) and senior wide receiver Adam Sanchez (17 catches for 278 yards and four touchdowns).

    “We’ve had trouble when teams run right at us, but this is as healthy as we’ve been since our first game,” Gasca said. “I think we’ll be okay and no matter what, this is definitely going to help us when we get to league.”

    Beating Bishop Amat won’t be easy. The Lancers (4-1) are coming off a 56-7 rout of Los Angeles Cathedral and have won three straight since their only loss to Anaheim Servite, the top-rated team in the Pac-5 Division. The combined records of Venice’s first five opponents is 18-4, a measure of how strong the Gondos’ schedule is.

    “I hope they’re not better than Helix,” Gasca said of the Lancers, who beat Venice 42-20 last season in La Puente. “They had a tough time with Garfield and Damien and Cathedral is pretty banged up. I thought we were very competitive with them [last year].”

    MaxPreps has Venice ranked fifth in the City Section’s Division I rankings, behind Dorsey, Carson, Narbonne and San Pedro. Of the City teams, only Carson has a more ambitious nonleague schedule than the Gondos, with games against Mater Dei, Long Beach Poly, Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo and San Diego Lincoln.

    Thursday’s game kicks off at 7 p.m. at Venice High.

  • Really?

    What in that article makes you think that? Reading the article I’m more inclined to pick Amat

  • SGV FOOTBALL

    Dont be surprised when South Hills beats Los Osos today.

  • Big Bear

    SGV FAN – I am calling it right now, Los Osos WINS!!! AND I for one will be very surprised if S.H. pulls out an upset.

  • Nobles

    Do not be shocked if Nogales hammers San Dimas tonight.

  • Nobles?

    Really? S Dimas is not going to have 4 interceptions and a QB fumble like Wilson did last week, don’t think so

  • Mountain View

    Hey Nobles, Doubt it. SD wins by 4 TDs or I’ll buy you lunch.

  • SaintsR4real

    Mountain View, I’ll double that!!

    Nogales max’s out at 6 points.
    San Dimas max’s out at 45.

  • FredJ

    LOL! Dorsey? They only beat Garfield by one score and had to come back to do it. So are you going to admit Garfield is good – or does Dorsey suck? Gotta be one or the other – right?

  • can’t read?

    Are you dumb Dorsey is ranked 41 in the state tough lost to REV by two points and they beat Alemany the defending champs who was favored to win the Serra league. Chaminade ranked 46 in state North ranked 26 in state. Now take the toughest 3 from Amat schedule and you’ll get Servite ranked 3 Venice 121 and Damien 124 ummmmmmm thats don’t look that tough to me or anyone who see’s this.

    Call it a tough game but Amat barely squeezed out a victory tonight against a much under matched Venice team. But one question: since Amat has played Garfield and every Amat fan gave them praise about how good they are who have they beat? I can tell you who Dorsey beat and i can tell you that Dorsey beat a team that was ranked higher than Amat at the time they beat them.

    Couldn’t make it to the game ..Can someone grade Amat’s performance? I did read Amat scored on two reverses which is awesome..like i said all season Amat will have to start pulling rabbits out of there hats to keep the streak going & to also compensate for the O-line size~…Wish someone would have mentioned that the game was on ibnsports.com I could have watched the game from my laptop here at the Hotel (las vegas)..Anyways i will definately be there for the league opener vs Alemany…Should be a shootout(still think Amat needs to go to a no huddle)

    San Dimas sure looked good for a team playing at half-speed. This really might be the best team in the division RIGHT NOW.

    Any mouse – I’m wonderring why if Garfield is so weak, Dorsey ( who you were bragging about a minute ago) needed a comeback to beat them by 6? So you either need to stop using Dorsey fromm the wieak City Section to boost your argument – or give props to Garfield, which helps mine? You choose.

    A 0-5 Garfield team will never help anyone’s offense Dorsey is the much better team just like we all know Amat is the much better team than Garfield it just so happen both teams struggled to an opponent im sure both teams underestimated. Dorsey is 4-1 with the one lost coming to REV who’s undefeated and ranked high in all polls, they also beat a high ranked team. On Garfields behalf now lets see they haven’t won one game this year so far but yet your still saying that Garfield is a good team WTF.

  • AMAT 73

    Sorry to dissapoint you Quasimoto but AMAT won last night and that’s all that matters .Guess you’re a little sore from ring the bells 38 times last night . 1 point ,5 points , 10 points , the W is all that matters. Bet ( get it bet as in Vegas Baby ) you were on the edge of your seat hoping your dream would come true on AMAT losing. Well you finished 1-4 for preseason now on to league. Since you mentioned J Serra , who you taking tonight ,Damien of the SGV or J Serra who called you last night according to your post.Come on brave one give us your pick and point spread please if you have the nads.But being the puzzy that you are known to be I doubt it . By the way Margaret Thatcher was one hell of a women in the world of male dominated politics . The original Iron Maiden .

  • Real talk

    @Fred j It seem that Amat is getting a slow start because the play to the opponents level or come out very flat. Wouldn’t you as a coach or a captian of the team get on their *****? I know the coach is a good coach but coming out flat heading into league some of the play calls and the penalties says to me they are not a discipline team, and I feel that is something the coaching should have under control. Also I never see a captain getting in the teammates face when they are just sleep walking come on people this is Amat where did the fundamentals go? So my question to u Fred how do you got Hags rated as a head coach?

  • lots of rumors

    to Yup, he was suspended for inappropriate comments and trying to hug the girls. Several girls complained, its been going on for a while, plus last year he was dating someone, who he use to coach. the team is not his dating service,

  • AMAT 73

    Very good win by SH over an IE foe. Maybe a team to take a look at in the Sierra . Next weeks game will be big for both schools . Could set the tone for the Sierra league. They could possibly shoot up to number 4 or 5 with that win.

  • Anonymous

    Bishop Amat looked very strong from start to finish. i must admit for a minute there i thought maybe they were playing Loyola and maybe thats why the game looked so tough but then i noticed league hasn’t started yet and that can’t be Loyola so i looked and found out it was little Venice who had Amat fighting for their lives. WOW Venice Amat really Venice had you guys sweating and in a fight for your rep. SMH if Amat goes into league with this attitude well we will definitely know the outcome of their season and it won’t be Amat playing late into November. I just think personally Amat is not ready this year.

  • Dan

    SGV Fan,
    That was a great game last night for South Hills, your right about Danny Sheehan, the kid does just about everything for the Huskies, impressive how he is able to step in for Vince Hernandez at QB and South Hills doesn’t skip a beat. He looks good enough to be a starting qb just about anywhere in the SGV. He also has been a clutch reciever for the Huskies, made several big catches in the Coloney game and also had a few in the WC game, last night he kicked the winning field goal with a few seconds left in the game, there was no doubt about the kick, he nailed it, clutch! If this is the same kid I’m thinking of, he has an older brother David who was a lineman at Los Altos a few years back. David was working with me a couple of years ago, very nice kid and a hard worker in the trade. At work we would talk about highschool football, He told me back then about his younger brother coming up the ranks and that he was going to be a good reciever.

  • 12th man

    Jalen Moore is leading the Pac5 in rushing & thats not counting las night’s performance~

  • Joe Amat

    Some of you guys in the Fish Bowl make me chuckle. You look at a record or a loss and make your judgements based on that. #1 Oaks Christian lost last night by 3 TDs and it wasn’t that close. Does that mean they now suck? No – they played a great team.

    Someone below mentioned Venice being 1-4. Their losses have been to Western Division #1 St Francis and #2 Chaminade, the entire San Diego section #1 Helix, and now #5 in Pac 5 Bishop Amat, with their lone win against 4-1 Harvard Westlake. Alotta really good teams would go 1-4 with that schedule.

    Venice has a slew of great athletes like top 10 recruit WR Gabriel Marks who was on a bunch of boards before committing to SMU and Jayshawn Lowe who many are hot on. Consequently they are the #5 team in Division 1 in the City Section. This is very comparable to scheduling a Carson (who is #1 in the City) and who many are clamoring to return to the Lancers schedule.

    I’ve said it a bundle of times, it’s not the record, it’s who you play and the styles that they play to prepare you for league and the playoffs.

    Let’s hope the competition and styles have prepared everyone for the league run they hope to have

    See this is what i don’t get about you Amat fans when ever you struggle to a team you should had demolished you throw out “hey they were good they played such and such and thats why their record is what it is” enough with the excuses your team isn’t as good as you all say it is. The fact is League is here and now all the push over games 0-5 Garfield, 1-4 Venice, 1-4 La mirada, 2-2 Cathedral, a 3-1 ok Damien team and of Course the great 4-1 Servite team that blew you out which should had been close because you all say your a good team and according to you all good teams plays good teams close.
    my point is looking at those schools and seeing those records then hear all of you say week in and out that they were good teams doesn’t support your argument at all. If they were so much of a good team then why they haven’t upset any of the other good teams they played? or is it the fact that they weren’t that good of a team and your just saying that to back Amat struggles. Again League is here and the excuses are over i hope those GOOD teams prepared Amat for league.

    South Hills looked good. They had some issues, but that’s to be expected when you’re going with a back-up QB. Hart runs strong. CO will definitely have to be careful on D next week, especially when SH runs that wildcat.

  • smallcitymc

    Take heart Amat fans. If anything, Amat’s win against Venice showed me that Amat is on the right track.

    Venice led both Helix and St. Francis at half time before losing. Helix is ranked #16 and St. Francis is ranked #28 IN THE STATE! Now take into account what Venice coach Gasca had to say

    …”"When guys are out of position or playing longer than they should there’s a ripple effect,” Gasca said. “Now we have six or seven players that we can roll through that puts us back where we belong”…

    They played against Helix and St. Francis with injured players on the side line and guys playing out of position. They were gased by the time they went into the second half of those games. They were almost back to full strength when they played Amat.

  • AMAT 73

    Anonymous,
    I believe you are somewhat mixed up . We have never come on here saying we are a great team , at least not known AMAT bloggers. Yes we do say we have a good team but never brag to the fact that we will blow anybody out . Now according to many bloggers, mainly haters, they are the one’s saying we should have blown out the teams we face. Yes Servite whacked us which we all have admitted on here. When the argument comes up on rankings or SOS or who’s the best team in the SGV facts are given by both sides of the issue and it is either solved or the ones not convinced keep going. The fact is we beat them , maybe not to your liking or the score you wish , by the way I think you might want to revisit the Garfield game 14-0 ( can’t win if you can’t score) Cathedral game 56-7 , La Mirada 49-13 , Damien 28-7 and running out the clock in scoring position or it could have been 35-7 . Venice, yes they played a hell of a game but look at the scoring we hung 17 to their 14 in the 4th quarter when it counts. So really other than Servite , show me our struggles as you put it . By the way that Venice team is ranked number 5 in the DIVISION 1 of the City and their losses are to some pretty good teams and they beat Harvard Westlake #12 in the Western Divison so I would consider them a good team , how about you ????

    AMAT 73
    I would not consider a 1-4 team a good team now if you had said average than i would have agreed.

    “By the way that Venice team is ranked number 5 in the DIVISION 1 of the City and their losses are to some pretty good teams”

    Again like i mentioned in my first post anytime Amat has a tough game you guys try to sell it as the team you played was a tough team, but a 1-4 record does not show tough at all. Just like the Garfield game, correct me if im wrong, but for weeks Amat fans has been saying Garfield is a tough team because they played Amat tough (revisiting 7-0 going into the fourth) indicates a major struggle for an elite program against a nowhere near elite team. All im saying is you Amat fans are becoming repetitive and me personally is tired of hearing the excuses Amat fans has every time they have a tough game. It comes off as if you Amat fans actually think that no team is suppose to hang with you and when they do you consider them a tough team by who they played not who they beat but who they lost to. (do you get what im trying to say) In fact in future references just accept the win or lost as it come don’t break it down to others as if oh we struggled because the team we played was tough. and insist that no SGV team would beat Amat because you beat them in the PAST. i do believe teams like Covina, CO, WC and or SH would probably beat this years Amat team based on their struggles to two teams that im almost sure those teams i named would have no problem with.

    Oh and by the way that City section division also has an 0-5 Garfield team in the top ten. shows how tough that division is

    end of the bench, we’ll find out. Loyola smacked West Covina, who beat Covina and South Hills, so lets see how Amat fares with Loyola in a few weeks. Amat smacked Damien by three touchdowns, and Damien plays Charter Oak and South Hills, so lets see how they do against them. Bottom line is, an SGV teams hasn’t beaten Amat in seven or eight years, the best of them all tried.

  • AMAT 73

    Anonymous,
    I sure do enjoy that name , anonymous. OK so now we get down to the brass tacks of your beef. You believe your list of SGV teams could beat our struggling team this season. Why not point out the teams struggles you see or did those scores wake you up . Funny but CO tried in AMATS supposed down years , guess what , beat them , a very good WC tried ,guess what beat them , SH we know they won’t try , Covina hasn’t tried but I am guessing they would fall like the rest. Yes you think that this years team could be beat but the fact of the matter is no team has a crystal ball to see when AMAT is going to have a struggling year like you think this year is so I guess we will never know , right.They roll the dice when they schedule us and history , facts , stats or whatever you choose show , AMAT usually wins. Bottom line is our battles are fought in the Serra where we all know there are nothing but good teams of which only WC has the nerve to even try to take any of them on and PAC-5 teams like MD. So if we lose a league game or 2 it will be fine with you because they are good teams correct and if we do lose you won’t here excuses just like you didn’t here any last year after the losses to Alemany and Tesoro.We will have just gotten beat plain and simple. Oh you forgot one team on your list , Monrovia , I recall they were one of the leaders in the list of who we would fall to this year. In closing mr anonymous , continue to hide in the bushes and when you see the car with the AMAT decal drive by throw your rocks as we will never know who to throw them back at or where they are coming from.Also we will never know whether your teams other than WC would beat Garfield or Venice because they would never schedule them .

    Once again my dear friend you Amat fans are repeating yourselves over and over. let the past be the past, in this present time CO, Covina, WC, and SH are looking real good SH not that much. But then you say what all Amat fans say, no one besides a hurt WC team dares to schedule teams in the Serra league. well this year so far teams in the Serra league has taken their lumps, as a matter of fact the pac5 has but thats a different argument. Now you say Amat fans didn’t have excuses after the Alemany or Tosoro lost NOW YOU KNOW THATS A LIE it was so many Amat fans complaining about the refs after the Alemany game and you even had some who came on here even criticizing the Amat coach. But thats the past lets focus on the now Amat is smaller in size CO, Covina and WC is probably bigger and if not more talented, then their just as talented. And believe me if or when Amat loses a Serra league game the first thing you Amat fans are going to say is ITS THE SERRA LEAGUE WHAT YOU EXPECT.

    But in all good luck in league. And i will throw my rocks at the car with the Amat Decals.

  • Beach Rat

    Desert Rat, I’m still pissed at you guys for not sending your guys to us. What up with that? Good luck tonight.

  • Frank

    Some Funny post on here, when did Amat say they had to blow every team out? And if they dont, they (Amat) make excuses, huh? Amat has had its ups and downs this year but has still dominated in almost every game, except Servite. Did Amat make mistakes last night, yeah they did and every time it cost them. Venice has a great player in #9 and if he is not properly covered he will hurt you. That guy made big plays for them and scored three of their touchdowns, he single handedly kept them in the game. Is that making an excuse?
    We should get a definition of what an excuse is. Why is an excuse looked at as a negative. If you call in sick to work becuase you have the flu, thats an excuse.Does it mean its not true? An excuse simply explains why something is or cannot be.
    When Amat lost to Alemany the excuse from Amat fans was “we gave up two Tds in the last minute of the 1st half.” Was that not true? Had that not occured Amat would of won, being that they only lost by one td. I realy don’t see Ananymous point on Amat making excuses. Explaining why we lost is not a negative its simply an explanation of the things that happened that caused a loss.
    Trying to flip it on Amat that they claim they have to blow everyone out is simply false. Amat knew it was going to have a tougher game this week, maybe you should read some of Hagerty’s quotes pregame. They only games Amat really blows out are when they play local teams. Ask Damien, west co, diamond ranch, and charter oak. Amat never has a close game when they play a local team, interesting, but if amat wins a close game to a team outside the Sgv every hater comes out the wood work on why Amat didnt blow them out. Amat is always in a no win situation with Haters. Win big “Amat played a sorry team” win close “you should of blown them out” Lose “See we told you Amat sucks” Win a league game “they’ll lose first round playoffs” Personally I love the haters, It proves that Amat is doing something right.

    anonymous,
    That’s why I wrote it , you know about the rocks . Teams in the Serra take their lumps every year. Ok all is in the past so it’s a stalemate . You think your teams would probably beat AMAT and I know my team would beat them . When they do play because the CO vs AMAT game will probably be first I will be looking for you on the blog , might be kind of hard to find you ,anonymous but I will try .On second thought it should be easy I ‘ll just look for the kid with the rock in his hand. And yes we may be smaller this year , I haven’t seen an AMAT blogger try to deny that .You know why , people don’t talk football they would rather talk shiat. Yes we knew the defense needed work. But what does that matter to you . We don’t play you , I think ? Either way it matters to AMAT in the Serra so why should you care . One last thing , when you talk about your teams ,show you truly have faith in them, phrases like, probably bigger , more talented , or just as talented don’t sound very convincing to me. There’s a hint of doubt. But in all thanks for the well wishes and good luck to your teams and the one you root for who you choose to keep anonymous .

    the record indicates that they are having a good season unlike a 1-4 team who is not and if the victory came over a good pac5 team then its safe to safe that the 5-1 team is good and that one slip could had been a fluke

    By the way i know your talking about North but why would you bring them up when they beaten your own defending league champion. And using you Amat fans way of measuring a good team they also beat a good kaiser team who only loses came to undefeated cajon and 5-1 North.

    Anonamouse-I apologize for the mistake obviously, not 5-1 but 4-1. Does that change your answer at all? 4-1 Inland team with a win over a Pac 5 school. Good? Great? In between? What about the team that handed them the lone loss? What about them? And what if they were 5-1? Are they good? Great? Having a good/great season? Looking for answers

    Hey Fred you made a bad pick going against South Hills. It shouldn’t be a surprise SH beat Los Osos. SH will be a stonger contender in the Sierra league.

    Anoynomas, what are the points you are making? why do you have this hatred of amat? YOu say amat is living in the past, well what is the past? The past is anything that has already happend that is no longer in the present. So amats wins this year are the past, their smashing of Damien a couple weeks ago is the past. So when a team has a great tradition and past should it not be celebrated? Or do we say thats the past and it no longer matters, then we must draw a line and measure from where do we say that cut off point is. In fact when you read this post for you it will be the present but for me it is the past.
    Now being that Amat has respect for its opponents Amat gives them credit, for a hard effort regardless of the outcome. You seem to have a problem with that. As well, analyizing a game and explaining where things went right or wrong, you call that making excuses. Your points just seem to have no substance to them. I’m curious do yo watch sports highlights and breakdowns of professinal games that explain why teams lose or win, or would you argue that the braodcasters are making excuses. By the way I missed what team you support, not that you need to support any but if you do, which team is it?

    anonymous-The point IS THAT THEY DON’T PLAY EACHOTHER and you can’t compare how they, would’ve, could’ve done. It’s pointless, unless you are just doing it for “shiats and giggles” BUT if that’s why you’re doing it for don’t make it sound as if you are speaking facts about who could beat who, because we won’t know unless they play eachother. Head to head is really the ultimate SCOREBOARD! BTW-I wasn’t trying to say those teams were less or Amat was better, just saying they didn’t do any of that scoring against Amat and they don’t play Amat so what’s your point?

    Anonymous,
    There you go again with the doubtful posts of yours. If AMAT played either one of those to teams it would probably worst than the Servite game . Well when you’re sure come back and talk to me . As for Lancelot’s statement I agree. So what if the beat other PAC-5 teams or hung points on a team that beat a PAC-5 team. We don’t play them so it’s all speculation on all parties. So Lancelot is correct when he says they haven’t hung shiat on AMAT .What do you see in that statement that makes you think we say our team is great ? It’s a fair statement simply because it hasn’t happened and as of this season will not happen because WE DO NOT PLAY EACH OTHER . You say they would probably beat us worst then Servite , I say they would definetly not beat us . Until we play who’s wrong . Games are not played on paper nor by stats which can give a guideline as to the outcome but not always the true case when the game is played. His answer was to some IE fool feeling his oats on a couple of good wins by Inland teams. If you read his last line he was more of the slamming the SGV then saying the Inland is tougher than the PAC-5 . So to that I would also say if and when they play AMAT we shall see . Talk is cheap as they say . Games are played on the field not the blogs. By your latest post I take it you are an IE honk ???

  • great for the sgv

    Frank, that was freaking hilarious. Your whole post was an excuse about why bISHOP NATION can make excuses about their struggles.

  • AMAT 73

    great for what ,
    I guess since the leader of the pack is absent you have to jump on someone else’s back now. Please explain what struggles you are referring to . I see you are following the words of anonymous in writing about AMAT’s struggles. Please list the struggles. I will help you out with the famous first one . AMAT’s O-line is too small . Funny thing is Moore is near the top if not at the top of the PAC-5 in rushing yards. Must be because all the linemen carry mirrors and a can of smoke in their pockets. You know the old smoke and mirrors trick. Your turn now dipshiat.

  • great for the sgv

    bISHOP-14 Garfield-0.Oh, but wait Garfield lost to powerhouse Southeast. My bad. bISHOP does not struggle they continue their dominance.

  • AMAT 73

    great for what,
    Did I miss something . 14-0 sounds more like Garfield struggled to get in the end zone. You’re such a bonehead you missed the obvious one Servite , so now I spot you 2 reasons but really only one struggle. Keep searching the blog and maybe your dumb azz will find another struggle you can list as we know you can’t think for yourself.

  • great for the sgv

    I wouldn’t classify the Servite game as a “struggle”, and I see your point on Garfield. Garfield’s defense folded and surrendered 14 points against MIGHTY bishop. But then we have to look at what Garfield did against powerhouse South East… Oh yeah, you forgot to ask who I root for!

    None other than MIGHTY bishop-STATE CHAMPS

  • Riddle me this

    great for sgv – why couldn’t Garfield score vs Amat but was able to drop 26 on Dorsey, who needed to come from behind to win in the 4th? And Dorsey played REV to a 2 pt game

  • AMAT 73

    great for what,
    We know who you root for jackazz . Boy you’re still hanging on to the first game of the preseason . That was 5 weeks ago . I guess being a fan of the team you really root for you have to live in the past . We’re ( as in we are) waiting for you to come up with a new struggle or are you waiting for someone to help you dimwit. You better go out to Azusa canyon and start turning over some rocks to look for your mentor. Or better yet just listen for the sound of the ringing bells .

  • great for the sgv

    Found that rock you were talking about it said
    “call bishop73 King Of The Dimwits”!!!
    Love the language you learned at bishop.

    Those schools are not as dominant as MIGHTY bishop-enough said. I alreasdy admitted that bishop does not struggle-just look at last seasons play-offs.

    by the way, who do you root for?
