“We don’t circle any games on our calendar. The game that needs to be circled is the next game. We were not looking past Los Altos tonight, we knew what they would bring.” – Diamond Ranch coach Roddy Layton on facing Diamond Bar after its bye week.
Bishop Amat 48, Culver City 19 – Lancers finish non-league 5-1 heading into next week’s Serra opener at Notre Dame.
Charter Oak 31, Los Osos 20 – Might be just the Chargers’ (1-4) first win of the season, but there are few teams in this area with a bigger notch on their belt.
St. Francis 48, Monrovia 14 – Guess this settles who’s the best in the Star-News area. But I could have told you that.
Diamond Ranch 30, Los Altos 13 – Moves to 2-0 in the Hacienda with victory over previously undefeated Los Altos.
Diamond Bar 34, West Covina 13 — Heard there were “we’ve got Noodles” chants in the stands at Diamond Bar. But more importantly, Brahmas get the win to keep pace with Diamond Ranch, both 2-0.
Glendora 16, South Hills 14 – Tartans win with a 19-yard field goal in final minute to remain undefeated, 5-0, with Upland in town next week.
San Dimas 58, Wilson 7 – The Valle Vista is a sight for sore eyes for the Saints, who might win every game this way.
Kaiser 18, Ayala 14 — Bulldogs had a lead most of the game, but not when it counts, in the end.

Bonita 59, Rowland 0 – This looks and feels ugly just typing it.
Arroyo 34, La Canada 10 – The Knights continue to get better and better since season-opening loss to Los Altos.
San Marino 63, South El Monte 14 – Could the Titans possibly give Monrovia a game, especially after Monrovia’s blowout loss to St. Francis?
La Puente 33, Sierra Vista 12 – The Warriors keep winning and winning, can’t wait for that showdown with Azusa.
Duarte 52, Workman 0 – Not a surprise, the Falcons wanted this after last week’s close loss to Azusa.
