“Come Thursday, it’s going to be the No. 1 offense vs. the No. 1 defense and I guess we’ll find out if defense really does win championships. I believe in our defense and I think we have the ability to stop the El Monte offense.” South El Monte coach Ibis Aguilar

    Roland has shown it can be dangerous but I think WesCo realizes the importance of this game, and will come out and do what they need to do. El Monte running away, same with Bonita. Expect Walnut to play fired up, Roddy and the heavily favored Panthers can’t put this one in the W column just yet.

    Colt47 are you guys going to the playoffs?

      I’m not, but if the Colts get by Pomona tomorrow night they are.

      • might see you at the playoffs if the colts go. Kid probably wont be down since his college will probably be in the D3 playoffs and they will be playing at least until the 17th. Good rumor for you- Vinegas joining Billy at TO ext season..

          Yeah..kid told me that night of the game up at Cal. Would be cool.

          • Vinnie apparently has asked for a sign off from his coaches and Calu is willing to kick in a grant on his application. That would be a cool combination again
