cabesCOVINA – Charter Oak High School’s slow start is a distant memory.
Kory Brown threw for 414 yards and four touchdowns and the Chargers won their fourth consecutive game with a 41-18 victory over host South Hills in a Sierra League football encounter Thursday night at Covina District Field.
Zion Echols also rushed for 129 yards for Charter Oak, which improved to 4-4 overall and 3-0 in league play. The Chargers also held the Huskies under 200 yards.
Adam Goss accounted for 237 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies, who slipped to 3-5 and 1-2.
Charter Oak coach Lou Farrar: “It’s a heckuva job trying to get to .500. I’m just happy our kids have put it together. We always talk about league, and how the second five games are the important (part of the season). We’re on a drive. We’ve got our head down and we’re going to keep driving.”
South Hills coach Albert Rodriguez: “We thought we had put ourselves in good position (late in the first quarter). But you have to credit Kory Brown. He did a great job extending plays. There where times we seemed to have him, but we couldn’t get off the field on third and long.”

    • AMAT 73

      COF,

        • AMAT 73

          Thanks D-Mo

  • 1st and goal

    Don’t count La Puente out of this game. They have a qb that is 5th in passing yards and a WR that is leading the valley. LP will show up and smash Azusa. Ch. Smurf will not come out on in this game.

    • AZTEC PRIDE

      Okay 4th n 10.seems a little odd your on here worrying about two Div 11 schools playing tomorrow and disrespecting Coach Scherf, when your own Coach has yet to beat Alemany! You’ll be at our house tomorrow, CITRUS COLLEGE, and just like you play good at your stadium, well so does AZUSA! Get them ready Coach Scherf! AZTEC PRIDE!

      • AMAT 73

        AZTECRUSADER PRIDE,
        Hey Pride watch that Alemany stuff there .We will take care of that issue Friday night . 1st and goal is a good buddy of mine and I believe a LP alum so cut him some slack . Good luck tonight to both teams and it should be close game .

        • AZTEC PRIDE

          No problem AMAT 73 and out of respect to you I will delete the Post! I knew i was treading on dangerous waters making that statement, LOL… But calling our Coach a Smurf wasn’t cool. I have great respect for Coach Scherf,who when I see around town will always shake his hand! Coach Scherf has brought some AZUSA PRIDE to this small community, and it’s amazing how having a program going in the right direction, makes the community some how feel good! You know what I mean AMAT73! Plus,was always helping my son become a better player/ person , and my son will visit him to this day. Okay I better shut up now before some blogger calls me gay! LOL…..AMAT 73, and yes get the win over ALEMANY!

          • AMAT 73

            PRIDE,
            Well it might have something to do with the school colors. LOL . Talk all the trash you can to him about LP , he can take it !!!! It would be nice to see both of our teams take the Warriors down this week !!!!

        Azusa hangs on to defeat La PuenteBy John Honell, Correspondent
        Posted: 10/24/13, 10:56 PM PDT |
        GLENDORA >> Azusa scored two touchdowns in a five-minute span early in the second half and hung on for a 27-20 win over La Puente on Thursday night at Citrus College.
        The win clinched a spot in the CIF-Southern Section Northwest Division playoffs and moved the Aztecs (6-2,5-0) into first place in the Montview League race, one-half-game ahead of Bassett, which plays Ganesha tonight.
        The Warriors (5-3, 3-2), trailing 20-13, were driving when the Aztecs’ Cameron Blackburn intercepted a pass at his own 39-yard line and ran it back to the Warriors’ 25.
        Angel Maldonado capped a four-play drive with a 1-yard run for a 27-13 lead.
        The Warriors, behind the efforts of backup quarterback Erick Morales, pulled within a touchdown with 6:11 left in the game.
        The Aztecs needed a fourth-down run by Blackburn to get a first down by the length of the football to keep possession and run out the clock.
        “We got that first down by half a football length,” Aztecs coach Joe Scherf said. “That was key. That’s a tough team and they played us tough for four quarters.”
        The Warriors scored on their first possession on a 28-yard pass from Jacob Tovar to Julian Llantada with 9:23 left in the first quarter.
        The Warriors drove to the Aztecs’ 5-yard line on their next possession. Defensive end Robert Lainfiesta tipped a pass and Angel Flores came down with the ball.
        “That second drive hurt us,” Warriors coach Scott Morrison said. “That was a tough break. We had a guy open over the middle, our quarterback saw the guy and their lineman got a hand up.”
        The Aztecs then drove 92 yards in 12 plays to tie the score on a 1-yard run by quarterback Jose Ledesma.
        Ledesma completed 10 of 18 passes for 190 yards and one touchdown. Blackburn added 102 yards on 16 carries.
        Carlos Montiel caught a 43-yard pass for the Aztecs’ second score and finished with three catches for 117 yards.
        “He’s (Montiel) tough to guard out there,” Scherf said. “He got their corner a little bit and he’s got great hands.”
        The Warriors got a scare when Tovar went down with an apparent neck or shoulder injury with 7:09 left in the second quarter. The game was delayed for more than 30 minutes before he was taken off the field on a stretcher.
        Paramedics took him to a local hospital, but Tovar was talking and reportedly could move all of his extremities.

          thanks for the love Aztec pride!! He played a hard 48 minutes and held a top ten reciever in the valley to only 54 yards. I’m very happy for the kid. I just wish they get more respect in that northwest division!! Anyways Now its time for sierra vista!

        • AMAT 73

          PRIDE,
          Great win on part 1 of fall of the Warriors weekend . Now we have to live up our end of the deal .

          • AZTEC PRIDE

            I just realized, I didn’t have to cut n paste the story on the AZUSA vs, Lp game and post it, and all you had to do was click on the Link! LOL.. Oh well. AMAT 73 thanks, and yes the LANCERS ARE UP and DUE a WIN over Alemany!!! Get this AMAT, for the entire SGV, so we dont have to hear WARRIOR BOY no more! Good Luck to you AMAT 73!.

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    AZUSA! Citrus College. OUR HOUSE! Good JOB!

  • http://sgvtribune.com/ Galileo

    I wonder if Big Lou would be singing a different tune…if they were to have won a particular game say, Amat…..he’s 0-4 against them,none of them close at all….just saying

  • LA Futbol

    So let me get this straight…Charter oak appears to be on its way to an undefeated Sierra League title and because of this dominance they will be moved DOWN to a weaker league next year? They are crushing the league and need relief????? Total BS!

    • D-Mo

      Moving them to a weaker Division isn’t a result of their dominance. In 2010 they moved up to Div II because of their dominance. Seems to be one extreme to the other. I don’t get it.

  • Valley Athletics

    It says chargers held huskies for under 200 yards but says Adam goss had 227 yds ? Chargers will win cif in the south east in a couple years with these sophmores and freshmen . Only losses from this year and last years freshman have been to Amat . Some good players in both classes .

    • D-Mo

      SH had more than 200 yrds. That’s gotta be a typo.

  • Don

    First, to the Chargers and the Aztecs, congratulations, way to go, YAHooooo! Two of the best programs in the area and always in the hunt to win league.

    Now . . . was either game much of a shocker, really? CalPreps predicted a 35-17 C O win at District and Azusa over La Puente, 28-17.

    The bad news is the screw-up that SS has made of the Divisions is really starting to be obvious. The Northwest (D10) is a no hope situation for anyone not playing in the Tri-Valley and D2 is really about three teams: Cucamonga, Vista Murrietta and Centennial. Sure there are some great wins among the next tier, especially the Norcow upset of Tesoro. But don’t let those guys from East Diamond Bar try and fool ya, the Inland is a three horse race.

    • AZTEC PRIDE

      You know Don, that’s a very nice compliment and I hope the AZUSA coaches read your post!

      • Don

        Every word true AP. Every year, the ‘Tec’s win the games they are supposed to win. Would like to see another SW team on the pre-season schedule though. Maybe Walnut or Rowland or even someone over the hill from the Del Rio.

    • D-Mo

      Don, that was Chino Hills that beat Tesoro. Gotta agree with the rest. I hope, if it has to be one of these 3 horses, I’d like to see Rancho Cuc get it. Hey you never know, though. That’s why they play the game.

      • Don

        Right you are D-Mo, my bad. Meant to type Norcow beating Alemany. That was probably even a bigger upset than the East Diamond Bar win over Tesoro given the coaching turmoil in the land of the horse earlier this year.

        I’m guessing the addition of Chuck Chastain stabilized the staff at Norcow.

        • D-Mo

          Yup. He is the man.

        • AMAT 73

          Don ,
          Don’t forget also the land of the wild cows !!!!

          • Don

            That would be East East Diamond Bar, right?

          • AMAT 73

            Not too far east . More like middle east hahaha .

  • FredJ

    Do you see Stevie “Rams Jacket” Ramirez in the picture. He didn’t learn a thing after getting steamrolled on the sideline last week. But that’s how we like Stevie, all up in close with the action.

    • AMAT 73

      Come on Fred J , that is no RAM jacket . Surprised you missed the ucla letters . Defintely a RAM hat but no jacket . Surprised PRIDE missed it !!!!

      • AZTEC PRIDE

        You know what AMAT, i really didn’t read Fred’s post, LOL.. Your right about the Jacket and has UCLA in the front, but the hat is an old school RAM! LOL… AMAT 73, actually you know what really picture amaze me, were Fred, Gano are standing next to ARAM, and ARAM makes Fred look like a SHRIMP! That picture of all three of them standing there cant be right, ARAM has to be standing on something??? LOL…
