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.
