It’s all smiles at Happy Rock, who are finally ready to knock Azusa off its perch
Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet.
Last Week: Robledo (13-5); Tolegian (14-4).
Season: Robledo (112-52); Tolegian (111-51).
Last Week:: With three weeks and playoffs left, it’s what you expected, Aram and I in another tight race. Aram picked up another game going 14-5 to my 13-5. We both tanked taking Amat over Alemany, Damien over Claremont and for whatever reason, Baldwin Park over Pomona. I missed two more taking Walnut over Rowland and Gabrielino over South El Monte. But Aram gave one back after switching midweek with Duarte over Gladstone. Thanks Big Fella.
This week:: Gladstone can do no worse than at least a share of the Montview League title with guaranteed wins over Workman and Ganesha the final two weeks, but it wants more than that. It wants to defeat four-time defending champ Azusa, wants to finish the regular season 10-0 and wants to win the league title outright. After dismantling Duarte last week, how can you bet against them? Amat is in a must-win against Crespi and at home, this is one they have to have and will get. If not, say goodbye to the playoffs. South Hills is still in the playoff hunt and with Damien in a free-fall, I like the Huskies. Charter Oak will prove that Ayala is not good enough to hang with them, Diamond Ranch will take care of Hacienda’s Cinderella, Rowland and San Dimas will give Covina its second league loss. Also look for La Puente to rout Duarte and Rosemead to give Gabrielino loss number two.
