You want Alemany, you’ve got Alemany. What’s Bishop Amat going to do?
Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet.
Last Week: Robledo (13-4); Tolegian (13-4).
Season: Robledo (99-47); Tolegian (97-49).
Last Week:: We cancelled each other out and each had four losses. Aram and I both missed taking Damien over Ayala and Los Altos over Rowland. My other two losses were taking Chino Hills over Charter Oak and South El Monte over Rosemead. But I got Aram back with his misses, taking Pomona over Wilson and Mountain View over Gabrielino.
This week:: After saying I wouldn’t do it, I did it. I’m taking Bishop Amat over Alemany at Alemany. Something about Alemany struggling to put away Notre Dame before escaping with a 49-42 win in the final minute combined with how bad Amat wants this game after what happened the last two years has led to this. Plus, with an extra week off, if not now then when? I also struggled taking Gladstone over Duarte. The Gladiators have flirted with losing since dominating La Puente in the league opener. But I think they’ll get the wake-up call and take care of the Falcons on Friday. South Hills and Charter Oak looks great on paper. Both 5-1 and bitter rivals. But in reality, it’s Charter Oak by at least two touchdowns, maybe three. Ayala’s been great and looked great last week, but Chino Hills will take care of business after laying an egg against Charter Oak. Oh yeah, the biggie in the Hacienda. I’m going with Bonita over West Covina. The Bulldogs’ two-year reign was dented in a loss at home to Los Altos, now Bonita will take care of the rest.
