    How many kicks can one do in a kickline before becoming utterly exhausted?

    The West Covina Song squad managed to do 546 of them and walked away.

    Barely.

    Each West Covina touchdown meant more kicks for the Song squad. Arm in arm they locked, while alternating legs.

    Right kick, left kick.

    One kick for every point on the scoreboard.

    It was a record-breaking night for both the Song and football teams as West Covina defeated La Serna 84-21 to capture their second straight CIF Southern Section Southeast Division Championship.

    “The last two years, we’ve had an incredible run and it’s nothing we’re doing different. The kids have bought in. They work and that’s what it’s all about,” said head coach Mike Maggiore, who now has three CIF titles as head coach. “I thought going into the game it was going to be tough, and our kids just played hard and capitalized on every mistake they made it seemed like.”

    The Bulldogs played like they were on a true championship quest, jumping on the Lancers early and never relenting.

    La Serna’s first three possessions resulted in a fumble, a blocked punt and an interception – all in their own zone.

    The Bulldogs (13-1) needed just one play to capitalize on the Lancers’ (10-4) first mistake. Reigning Southeast Division Player of the Year Chris Solomon rushed it in from 27 yards out for his first touchdown of the night.

    It total, he had three rushing touchdowns – two coming in the first quarter.

    Solomon’s backfield mate, Jimmy Frazier, rushed for two touchdowns of his own and had a kickoff return for a score as well.

    West Covina led 49-7 at halftime.

    West Covina wins back-to-back CIF titles for the first time in school history, and their fourth overall.

    The West Covina players had their sights set on 80 points in Friday’s final.

    “Our goal was to get 80 and that’s what we did. That’s a pretty amazing score right there,” said Solomon.

    The 84 points is a CIF record for the most scored in a title game, surpassing J.W. North’s 67 scored in the 2007 Eastern Division championship
