La Puente set to bounce back After finishing 9-1 but falling far short of Azusa in the Montview League championship game, La Puente drew Alhambra in one of the first round’s most evenly matched games. Going by pure records, the game actually appears quite sexy. Alhambra enters 8-2 and, like La Puente, the Moors were embarrassed in their league title game. Also like La Puente, they’re looking to bounce back with a big playoff run. (To continue click thread).
“They play good, solid football,” La Puente coach Brandon Rohrer said. “They’re 8-2 and they’ve played a lot of close games. They could probably easily be 5-5, but you have to give them credit because they are 8-2 and find ways to win the game.
“I’d say we’re evenly matched. They’re a good football team and we feel we have a good football team.”
La Puente must quickly shake off last week’s 50-21 loss to Azusa, but Rohrer expects his team will have little trouble doing so.
“The boys know it’s a new season, it’s the third season,” Rohrer said.
“Everybody is 0-0 and we plan on being here for the next four weeks.”
