Thursday Final: Charter Oak’s Vaughns runs wild In Mayor’s Trophy win over Glendora; South Hills avoids mammoth collapse, beats Monrovia 30-27

While Charter Oak was blowing out Glendora 38-3 behind five Vaughns TDs, South Hills nearly blew a 30-0 lead, holding on in the final moments for a 30-27 victory. An interesting decision in the South Hills-Monrovia game came after Monrovia scored to cut the Huskies’ lead to 30-13 early in the fourth. An extra point would have made it a 16 point and two possession game, but Monrovia went for two and missed. They ended up scoring two more touchdowns, but by not getting the extra point earlier, they didn’t have a chance to tie with two two-point conversions after the TDs. In any case, it was an incredible comeback effort.

Thursday’s results
Charter Oak 38, Glendora 3 — The Chargers got their swag back. Aaren Vaughns scored five touchdowns, including a 97-yard kick return to help forget last week’s loss to Amat.
South Hills 30, Monrovia 27 — South Hills almost blew 30-0 lead with just under three minutes to go in the third. The Wildcats rallied all the way back, and got the ball back down three with two minutes left. But the Huskies got the stop and the win.
Duarte 35, Ganesha 20 — The Falcons off to the start it hoped for in the Montview League. But for a team with playoff aspirations, it was closer than I thought.

  • New York

    I’m fortunate to be able attend this game and support the Cats. I know Coach Maddox will have us well Prepared. My two concerns are that South Hills has had two weeks to prepare AND that Freddy picked in our favor…

    Most concerning are the Dawgs big linemen. If our receivers drop passes then Shills will have more time to wear us down.

    Monrovia by a touchdown or two.

  • Mean Green Pastures…

    New York!!!!!

    I’ll see you there!

  • People

    People are forgetting to realize Glendora still has Amin Raad “the punisher” and Cade wasn’t much of a factor on defense.

  • MonroVian

    Man can’t wait, lots of old cats in the house tonight! Green and New York see you guys at the game; maybe even on Myrtle later tonight.

    “You Don’t Want No Green And White”

  • Huh?

    So, Glendora is supposed to score 1 more touchdown than amat did against co’s d? And without their #1 rb? C’mon man.. Game will be over by halftime.

  • Mean Green Pastures…

    Glendora is 1-1 vs Charter Oak. They always seem to give the CO problems. Honestly, These kids are used to playing against Upland, Rancho, Los Osos, and Etiwanda. Charter Oak has nothing in the stable that they don’t see in league. In Fact, this might be the easiest game they have besides Alta Loma. I have CO by a td, but only because of the injury. If Glendora had their other RB, I would take Glendora for the upset.

  • AMAT 73

    CO without a doubt in this one . Monrovia needs to light up the board quick and SH will not be able to catch them . If it’s a grinder and a slow pace SH will be in it to the end . Good luck to all teams playing tonight for well played and injury free games.

  • Red Leader

    Monrovia has 4 turnovers in the first half. They look as sloppy as they did the first week. No improvement whatsoever and there is no senior leadership. South Hills is just playing hard nosed football and Monrovia has no answer. Monrovia coaches are obviously trying to pad their qb’s and they’re favorite wr’s stats which is blowing up in their face. Let’s see how they come out in 2nd half. But at this point I would be surprised if this Monrovia squad can make it to the semis.

    Friday’s top high school football games

    Ventura St. Bonaventure (4-0) vs. Santa Margarita (4-0) at Saddleback College, 7 p.m. (Fox Sports West Prep Zone): The task for St. Bonaventure looks daunting. Santa Margarita has scored touchdowns on 17 of its last 20 offensive possessions and scored 141 unanswered points over 10 quarters. Quarterback Johnny Stanton is completing 68% of his passes and has nine TD passes. Running back Ryan Wolpin has scored 10 TDs. “We’ve got some answers,” St. Bonaventure Coach Todd Therrien said. “Let’s see if they work.” The Seraphs, led by quarterback Ricky Town and running back Zachary Green, own wins over Corona Centennial and Redlands East Valley. The pick: Santa Margarita.

    Harbor City Narbonne (3-0) at Gardena Serra (4-0), 7 p.m. (Fox Sports West Prep Zone): Narbonne has aspirations of reaching a CIF state championship bowl game, and winning this game would move it a step closer to achieving that goal. The Gauchos’ defense hasn’t given up any points in three games. The challenge for Serra quarterback Jalen Greene is to limit mistakes and make good decisions. Serra’s defensive line is capable of pressuring Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams. A sold-out stadium is expected. The pick: Narbonne.

    12th Man,

    I stand by this team talent-wise. But their execution and lack of intensity is baffling.

    FOUR turnovers INSIDE South Hills territory in the first half! Championship or No. 1-ranked teams don’t do that.

    So yeah, I was wrong. I didn’t factor in that they wouldn’t get the memo.

  • Anonymous

    My boy Aram sad to say buddy but this just isnt your year you had Monrovia ranked number 1 and look at them now. Now you have LS number 2 and watch how they look after tomorrow night, i think this year leave the ranking to the little bias keebler elf Fredj he’s a little bit better than you this year but you owned him in previous years so dont get down on yourself, pick yourself back up attack the nearest 24hour donut shop order a bakers dozen all jelly filled donuts and think while eating them where did i go wrong. Get your game back Aram i hate the way your looking this year on the blogs, well just the ranking part.

    Hmmm….interesting ho-down at the ole CDS. First off, wtf South Hills coaching staff. With some of the decisions you made, you really deserved to lose that game. I mean screw it, why stick with what was working at 30-7? You weren’t playing a slouch team…it was Monrovia.

    And to the green….not sure what to make of the mess the Cats made. Talk about kitty liter all over the place. This team is loaded with talent but doesn’t seem to have an identity. Great players, but I didn’t see any real leaders out there. Just error filled listless drives and a bunch of hanging heads. Props goes to Maddox and crew for keeping the kids in it. Unfortunately a dub was not in the cards. I have to say that if this team figures it out man, its gonna be a fight to the death!!!

  • Spartan 03

    Disappointing night to say the least.

    Listening to all the hype and not having seen Monrovia play I decided to go down to District Field to check them out. I also used it as an opportunity to see what South Hills would be bringing to the Sierra League. The first 3 quarters (which is all I seen) were SLOW and boring. I should have stuck around to see an exciting finish.

    South Hills had great size on offensive and defensive line, but too slow. Very simple and basic play calling on offense. When youre getting 4-5 yards every run play you might as well stick to it until they can stop it. Play book will need to be opened up come league time for South Hills to have any shot.

    Monrovia, dont know where to start as from what I have been reading I was expecting so much more from them. First thing I noticed was they lacked depth, I counted 40 45 players suited up. They continually shot themselves in the foot with dropped passes and turn overs; this is always a recipe for disaster. Maybe because the overall pace of the game was slow, but I couldnt see the speed and athleticism that has been so highly talked about. #5 has D1 size but didnt show D1 speed tonight. Maybe I caught them on a bad night, but overall I was not impressed.

  • sgv baby

    Monrovia is a team I’ve seen more than once this year and not impressed from day one.
    To all the Monrovia fans I said it after the Ayala loss “You will bounce back” Defeating
    a down coach-less Arcadia team and a small San Dimas team that had you on the ropes early.
    Such an up and down start for the Cats! I still think Your team can compete at the end
    BUT your team is still playing with the “I” in your team. Come together now before its too late.
    All the D1 talent? Your linebacker commits to NW , #5 UC. I wonder where Ayala’s
    linebackers or D-linemen going. They were bigger faster and athletic.
    Sunshine, I thought he would be better than what he has shown. Citrus or Pasadena might be a good fit for him.
    His main receiver with 4.3 40 might walk on as a kicker somewhere, not as a receiver maybe a kickoff guy only.
    Ainsworth hmmm???

  • Sierra League Fan

    The Sierra League picture is starting to come into focus after last night’s games. Here’s my take….

    South Hills – They were beaten by 14 by a West Covina team that was destroyed by Chino Hills. They were up 30-0 on a Monrovia team that Ayala sqeeked by with a 1 point win…..hmmm

    Charter Oak was handled by Amat last week who Chino Hills tied and could have beaten. They beat up on a poor Glendora team that Ayala had a battle with and even Claremont beat.

    Damien got abused by O lu and beat an average Los Alamitos team. Here are my predictions for the Sierra League

    1. Chino Hills will beat Charter Oak by 10 and run the table … 5-0
    2. Charter Oak will lose to Chino Hills but crush everyone else… 4-1
    3. Damien/Ayala – Whoever wins this game goes 3-2 and takes 3rd….the other goes 2-3
    5. South Hills will beat Claremont and be crushed by CH & CO…will play Ayala & Damien tough 1-4
    6. Claremont ….0-5

  • Jury Report

    Well? Whats the jury’s verdict on C.O.s “newest” Linebacker? With all the hype before the game I was expecting a follow up story about his performance today? Anyone at the game notice he was out there? How did he look? Did Amat and Hagerty make a HUGE mistake or what?

  • Time to Blame

    Truth be told Monrovia Football needs a change in philosophy, I played for Monrovia high in the 1970s, I have attended many many football games and it is painfully obvious that Monrovia has talented players, my greatest concern is what I see every game, bad coaching, horrible play calling, bad player substitutions, abysmal special teams play and a team that simple is not very tuff or physical. I often wonder who if any of the current coaches on the Wildcat staff ever played any football beyond Jr All American Football.
    Coaches your players are a reflection of your coaching style or lack thereof. In order for your team to play at a superior level you have to coach at a superior level. After watching a lot of high school football from the desert to Orange County It is clear to me that Monrovia has as much talent if not more than Mission Viejo or Chino Hills however their coaching is far superior to Monrovias. Monrovia coaching is terrible and it is very evident by watching this team perform, you cannot say your about it, you have to be about it
    All of us Monrovia fans have watched in horror this team and every team coached by these coaches continue to make the same mistakes over and over and over again and one has to ask when this style of play will cease to occur, when will there be consequences for poor play on the field. Every one of your players plays how they are coached and its clear to all of us changes need to occur.
    Maddox has to know that with winning come high expectations and a greater amount of criticism and scrutiny for him, his team and his coaching staff. I have a few suggestions for you and your entire coaching staff Coach.
    1) Hand over the play calling to someone on your staff that knows and understands offense, play calling, tempo of the game, player personnel and the utilization of offensive schemes. If you do not have anyone one on your staff hire someone. You need to stop watching the game and coach the game. You should be managing your coaches and interjecting when needed but the time has come for you to give up the play calling on offense.
    2) Fire your special teams coach, great teams have great special teams and your special teams are abysmal.
    3) Good Luck Versus ST Francis youre going to need it.

    Re: Time To Blame

    Wow typical Monday morning quarterbacking. I’m not even a Monrovia fan and I wouldn’t throw the coaches of my own school under the bus like that. What a complete lack of respect towards your Alma Mater and the athletic program. I guess that’s typical of a guy who never made it past the JV team as a Senior. How bout instead of criticizing those individuals who put in countless hours working with these young athletes, you put away those flaming hot cheetos and volunteer your expertise to the program. I suggest you get up early every morning during the summer and work with the boys weightlifting, then come back in the evenings for training and 7 on 7. Then when the season starts you spend every night, every weekend working on game plans, practice, breaking down films. Until you do your time zip it..

  • Jack B. Nimble

    Believe me, we were all awaiting the “Hauser Hype” He did not disappoint. I had heard plans were to play him every down but he was not needed on the offensive line vs. Glendora. He played middle linebacker most of the night and looked like a pitbull that hadn’t eaten for two weeks. (or perhaps a year) He made some huge hits and was in on most tackles. I had read of his lack of foot speed on these blogs but was pleasantly surprised how well he pursued the ball and got to it in a bad mood. Of course, he was playing in the middle. All is all, I’d give him an A for his performance. He had to be exhausted from all the plays he was involved with having not played for a year. Don’t know if a mistake was made at Amat or not but this kid can play both sides of the ball.

  • Time to Blame

    I have the same critic of your Apaches after watching your abysmal team play against Rio Hondo prep. ZIP that

  • Jim Brown

    The Vaughns kid at CO is pretty special. Not a bad replacement at RB considering that two guys actually play ahead of him. He is downright elusive. Glendora is definitely better than they were last season, Vaughns just made them miss. Perhaps CO will be better than I thought they would, especially after the first half debacle vs. Amat. It was truly a Thursday night treat.

  • Hauser Looked Like Doogie

    I was at the game last night. I am a Glendora grad and went to watch my old team against CO. Man, are we bad. We have no team speed but we still beat CO on the edge, moved the ball and burned them on passes all night.
    #58 looked like a beast in a uniform, but unless the ball was run right at him…he was a non factor. He has no lateral movement and stared in the backfield all night long. He cannot get back in pass drop and they threw in his zone (over the middle) all night. He is more of a DT or DE….not a LB. There is no way he could play both ways, he was gassed after the 1st qtr. He and most of CO’s D were standing with their hands on their hips gasping for air early on. I can see how a conditioned team like Amat beat them easily. We are not at that level and will struggle in the baseline league again

  • QuietCat

    @time to blame

    It truly is a shame with all the football you have watched all over Southern California you haven’t spent more time in Monrovia! Last time I checked you can’t go to a semi-final appearance in your first year, finals three straight years, and win the last two consecutive Championships with half way decent coaching! Also the true shame is with all of your experience and knowledge your keeping it to your self and not gracefully sharing any of that with those kids. To bad. You probably should be at a higher level anyways. Maybe you could talk with Al’s son about the Raiders job after this season. Give us all a break and try to help the situation instead of doing such a fabulous job of pointing out the obvious problems. Classy, and like Apache was saying typical Monrovia, sad.

    Let go boys, you have to make a decision what your legacy is going to be. Pick yourselves up and get back to work. No M-Town team has won a CIF title undefeated. Do what your capable of and never stop, come together, and play as a family!

    GoCats!

  • Time to Blame

    @ Quiet:
    I dont care what you’ve done I care about what you are DOING. Maybe Monrovia is just a bit better than Rio Hondo Prep. Looks to me like the Mildcats are a nice lower level team and thats about it even with all that DIVISION 1 talent. Ask yourself one simple question has Monrovia had more talent on any of Maddox’s previous teams. I thought so, it’s coaching plain and simple and I can see that by taking in a Monrovia game once in blue moon. In fact I wont be checking out anymore because they Suck and cannot play outside the mid valley and thats a proven fact.

  • NO BIG SURPRISE!!!

    NO BIG SURPRISE!!! said:
    @Fred,
    You and others may be surprised but I also know there are a lot of us who aren’t. As we have said all along, Monrovia’s success is only base on it’s weak league schedule. Too often when they play a MEDIOCRE opponent, they come up short. Their talent level is overrated. I have said it before and I will say it again, some of this D1 college recruiters are terrible at evaluating talent. No surprise year in and year out, the likes of Colorado and Northwestern finishes at the bottom of the Pac 12 and Big 10. Is Monrovia one of the best team in the SGV? Far from it, mediocre at best. People like New York, Observantcat, and Kennedy Bryant do a lot of trash talking and people like you buy into their hype. Please don’t act surprise if Monrovia doesn’t beat St. Francis next week because they WON’T. Monrovia is no where near ready to compete in big boy football as they have proven again and again against mediocre opponents. I am calling it, Monrovia will not repeat as D11 champs this year.

  • Incorrect

    @ Sierra League Fan
    Your a little bit off on your evaluation:
    1. Glendora beat Claremont, not the other way around
    2. Damien has yet to play Los Alamitos and therefore has not beaten them as of yet

  • Truth is…

    There is no bigger misnomer than the phrase “Monrovia D-1 athletes.”

    Do me a solid, name 5 Monrovia D-1 football players in the last 10 years. Just 5. Don’t run off names of kids who transferred or grew up in Monrovia and went to school elsewhere or none of that. I want 5 names of ballers in the last 10 years that went D-1. You having a hard time? Yeah, me too. And if you can name 5, now name 8. Or 10. Which would only be 1 a year! All I hear on these blogs and in Monrovia every year is that we have all these guys going D-1. Then in February on signing day they are nowhere to be found! Seriously, name 5!

    I understand that, finally, this year’s team has a few. So yes, this year the phrase “Monrovia D-1 athletes” has some substance. And still, somehow, that hasn’t meant jack when it comes to playing so-called “step-up” games.

  • AMAT 73

    no big surprise,
    I have to put in a few words on your post .I don’t believe you should lump in New York with the rest of the Monrovia bloggers . He has always told it like it is . Honest analysis on Monrovia and pulls no punches. The one who is really missing in action is the one who always signed you don’t want no green and white .I think he was Mtwn or something like that .

  • haha

    If SH almost lost that game I wonder what they will do against CO………..CHOKE! I predict those Chargers will get slaughtering some Dawgs!

  • Sgv sports fan

    Ha ha, you state that the South Hills Dawgs will choke? They would only choke if they were expected to win and that is not expected. Now if the Dawgs beat Charter Choke then that will be the true meaning of choke you clown. So did charter choke take a crap against Bishop Amat? They wanted to claim they were the best of SGV but they are not even close buddy. Did your kid not get playing time at SH so that is why he transferred out? Don’t be mad at them because he gets no PT.

    The game between the 2 teams is a few weeks away so not sure why you want to come on here and talk crap.

  • Chill Out

    South Hills beats Back 2 Back Cif Champs Monrovia. West Covina beat South Hills. Chino Hills smashed Back 2 Back Cif Champs West Covina. All these local high schools winning lower division Cif titles are all mediocre. Bishop Amat every year is in a class of there own. Don’t ever compare local schools with Amat. Don’t try and compare Covina’s 95 team to Amat’s 95 team. Covina and that division is a joke! The same with West Covina’s championship team last year. Amat would have spanked them to. You couldn’t even beat Loyola! Also WC you haven’t beat a Pac5 team yet. Lost to Mater Dei, Lost to Amat and now losing your a55 to Loyola, lol.

  • New York

    Let’s be clear, neith I nor any other Monrovia bloggers came on this board to boast of last week’s victory over San Dimas. I had fun bantering back and forth prior to the game in response to comments made by SD, but I did not come in to boast of the victory after the fact.

    I’ve avoided this board following Thursday night’s debacle at CDF, because I really did not think it would be constructive. Unfortunately, I could cut and paste my concerns following the Ayala loss after every game so far this year. Thursday night I took in my first game in person, and was very disturbed by many things including the lack of life and lack of sense of urgency in our style of offensive play.

    To anyone who says Monrovia does not have talent: Remember how successful our kickoff returns were all night, usually around and beyond the 50. Also note home many different players scored within the last 15 minutes of the game. Also the variety of our scoring: kickoff return, QB sneak over center through SHills big D-line, tightend pass, etc. That does not happen without variety of talent on the field. The problem is that we simply cannot get out of our own ways and take advantage of our strengths. I don’t have the luxury of watching our practices, but I firmly beleive that teams play how they practice.

    Lastly, the only times Monrovia has ever beaten legitimate step-up teams (there are none on our schedule this year, btw.) is by playing with passion.

    If I were Principal Jackson, Coach Maddox and his staff I would beg longtime Monrovian Coach Ed Rycroft to come back in and then allow him carte blanche to get our boys ready to play. Because they might have a good understanding of where to line up (X’s and O’s), but they are not ready to play football. Football is a physical, fast and often times violent sport. This is not a sport where players and coaches can be successful if they enjoy watching more than playing.

    Wow, Charter Oak actually looked like a good team with studs, Oh yeah forgot they weren’t playing anyone. Its funny how that works. All this false hype for Charter oak, Monrovia all summer. But we see what happens when they have to play better competition. Basically these teams need to recognize their place. Charter oak was a good southeast team, only a mediocre to weaker inland team.
    Monrovia you guys are a great D11 team, but that’s really it. You don’t have the horses to compete against weak teams in upper divisions from your own. As I had talked about before when Mtown came out to the three way with Amat and south hills it was obvious that Mtown had no business being there. I had heard about their D1 athletes but I wasn’t impressed with what I saw.
    My Advice, you guys just need to keep it real with where you’re at, be respectful on the blog and then you wont catch so much flak.
    In all honesty did anyone really think St paul would beat Amat. St paul has a lot of work to do, outside of Scobby they have nothing else.

They work out the bugs and get everyone on the same page, then proceed to playing solid Charger football. “They didn’t play anyone”. Typical statement. Amat was great, Glendora was terrible, whatever. I guess we’ll have to wait and see about Los Osos – right?
    A CO win will mean LO was terrible. That’s how it works out there in hater land.
    No comment on MHS, but they are a lower Div team so what do you expect?

    @ D-mo, Oh ok! Yeah you got a great defense, offense too! Maybe you were absent during the summer but all we heard was how great CO was and Mtown and how weak Amat was gonna be.
    It seems the truth has become evident because no matter what you do from here on out remember who handed it to you. Remember how great the gap is, before you start talking about how you can compete with Amat again.
    All summer we heard about Co and mtown, maybe not you personally but from their bloggers, how great your teams were and how weak Amat was, “Amat was going to go 1-5 or 2-4 at best in non league, hmmm!

    C’mon Frank – CO would beat Amat last year. And any year in between then and getting their asses handed to them in ’05. And probably will be able to beat them in two years, after CO chooses not to renew this series. You know Amat only schedules them in years they know they can beat the Chargers. LOL!

    I actually did think CO could compete with BA this season. But I also knew it would take a nearly mistake free game to beat them. I never claimed BA was in a down year or that they wouldn’t win in preseason. I don’t know who those ignorant statements came from.
    I will say this, CO is a very capable team. I like the progress the O is making. Defense could be one of their best.
    On a side note, CO lost a long time faithful fan and supporter last friday. Bill was one the 8 at the top. It won’t be the same without him. Thoughts and prayers going out to his family. He will be missed.
