Cordell Broadus, the son of Snoop Dogg, among those expected to be suspended for Diamond Bar following brawl

cordellbroadusStory: Both the Diamond Bar and Diamond Ranch high school football teams are expected to see a considerable number of players handed one-game suspensions for their roles in a brawl that marred the end of last week’s game between the two rival schools. Sources say that Diamond Bar could lose as many 20 or more players for its next game, which is on Nov. 1 against Rowland. The Brahmas have a bye this week. Among those expected to be suspended is standout wide receiver Cordell Broadus, who is the son of rapper Snoop Dogg.
Diamond Ranch is not expected to have as many players suspended, but still a significant amount. Official numbers won’t be known until today when the CIF-Southern Section office is expected to put out a release with its ruling.

Boys Water Polo: Justin Contreras scores nine goals to lead Los Altos over Walnut, 17-14

HACIENDA HEIGHTS — Justin Contreras just didn’t want to lose, and because of his effort, the Los Altos High School boys water polo team.
Contreras scored nine goals, including eight in the second half, and the host Conquerors rallied for a 17-14 victory over victory over Walnut Tuesday afternoon in a Hacienda League game that featured two teams ranked in the CIF-Southern Section Division 5 top 10.
TGeorge Millard had four goals and David Herrera had 15 saves for Los Altos, which improved to 10-7 overall and 3-0 in league play. The Conquerors, who face No. 1 Glendale on Friday, began the week ranked No. 6 in Division 5.
TX Body: Scott Media had nine goals and Jeffrey Silverberg three for Walnut, which slippes to 2-1 in league play. The Mustangs are ranked No. 2 in Division 5.
Los Altos’ Justin Contreras: “We just came out (for the second half) like we wanted it. In the first quarter, we didn’t seem to have too much intensity. In the second half, we came out with a little more confidence and played loosely.”
Los Altos co-coach Bobby Contreras: “I never count his goals. When I heard he had nine goals, that’s a good game for him. I’m always as a coach looking to spread it around, but it looked like with nine goals it proved he wanted this game quite a bit.”
Los Altos co-coach Chris Coleman: “This is big, very big. It’s our pre-CIF week. We have No. 1 (Glendale) and No. 2 (Walnut). They are our league rivals, they beat us here last year on senior day, so our boys wanted this win.”
Walnut coach Mike Rieben: “We just made mistakes in the second half. They capitalized on our mistakes.”

Matt Koffler returning to coach Rosemead football for one game to replace Marc Paramo for unspecified rules violation

STORY: Matt Koffler is once again the head coach of the Rosemead High School football team — but only for a week.
Koffler was asked by school officials to return as Panthers head coach for this week’s game against El Monte after the school was prompted by the CIF-Southern Section to take disciplinary action against head coach Marc Paramo and an assistant coach for an unspecified rules violation.

Is running up a score bullying? Parent files “bullying” complaint against high school football coach after 91-0 victory?

I don’t know if a 91-0 score is bullying, but that’s what they’re discussing in Texas after a parent filed a “bullying” complaint against the winning teams coaching staff …

STORY: Aledo ISD administrators say the complaint suggests the coaches should have told players to take it easy on the competition.
“I would never ask our kids not to play hard,” said Aledo football coach Tim Buchanan. “I would never tell them, ‘Go out and let them score.’ That’s not what you want to teach kids.”

VIDEO of Diamond Bar-Diamond Ranch brawl and latest update; CIF looking into Pomona-Wilson altercation as well

MORE FIGHTS? — CIF-SS spokesperson Thom Simmons confirmed the section is also looking into an incident (fight between players) that occurred during Pomona’s 53-10 victory over Wilson on Friday.

STORY: As of Monday afternoon, Vern Sparling, who is the Foothill-Citrus area officiating liaison to CIF, was collecting video of the game from both schools and also the ejection lists from the referees who officiated the game.

“I think we should be more worried about the fact that we had two benches that went on the field and got themselves in the brawl. The behavior of the teams involved were such that perhaps that the last thing they should be worried about is whether or not they can make the playoffs.” CIF-Southern Section spokesperson Thom Simmons.

Tribune Super 35 Rankings: Charter Oak boys have become the men of October; Bishop Amat back to No. 1

1. Bishop Amat (5-2) – The Lancers move back to No. 1 following the bye week thanks to Glendora and Chino Hills’ losses. Amat can prove it deserves the No. 1 spot by finally beating Alemany on Friday, a game it has to have if it has any hopes of winning the Serra.
2. Glendora (6-1) — The Tartans’ stay at No. 1 was brief after last week’s thorough defeat by undefeated Rancho Cucamonga. But the Tartans, who lost their first game, only drop one spot. They have to continue to prove they belong starting with Etiwanda next.
3. Charter Oak (3-4) — The Boys of September have become the Men of October with three straight impressive wins after starting 0-4. The Chargers defeated Los Osos, Damien, Chino Hills and are 2-0 in the Sierra League.
4. Chino Hills (5-2) — Perhaps nobody (except I) saw the Huskies’ loss coming against Charter Oak and now they have to regroup to stay in contention for the league title should Charter Oak stumble along the way.
5. Diamond Ranch (6-1) – The Southeast Division’s second ranked team will find out if there are any punishments following Friday’s brawl with Diamond Bar. But the Panthers still got the win, 34-20, and are in great position to win Hacienda.
6. Los Altos (6-1) – Except for its only loss to Diamond Ranch, the Conquerors have been great and should get another win this week vs. Walnut before finishing with Bonita and West Covina — two toughies to end the regular season.
7. Bonita (5-2) — The Bearcats return from a bye week to host West Covina. ‘Cats running back Jake Payton used the week off to take a recruiting visit to Purdue.
8. Arroyo (6-1) – The Knights could find Mountain View difficult this week, but the Knights should get the win and probably won’t have another tough game until the finale against Rosemead.
9. Diamond Bar (5-3) — For the past few years the theme at Diamond Bar is it doesn’t win the big games. And once again, it lost another biggie at home to Diamond Ranch. Now you have to wonder if it will finish strong enough to make the playoffs.
10. San Dimas (4-3) — The Saints are so dominant in the Valle Vista they’re averaging 50 points a game and winning by a 43-point margin. That, my friends, is ridiculous.
The Rest: 11. Pomona (7-0); 12. Damien (3-4); 13. South Hills (3-4); 14. Ayala (3-4); 15. Baldwin Park (6-1); 16. Rosemead (6-1); 17. West Covina (7-4); 18. Azusa (5-2); 19. Northview (5-2); 20. Bassett (4-3); 21. La Puente (5-2); 22. Duarte (3-4); 23. Claremont (1-6); 24. Covina (3-5); 25. Mountain View (3-4); 26. Walnut (2-5), 27. Rowland (2-6); 28. South El Monte (2-5); 29. Sierra Vista (2-5); 30. Nogales (2-5); 31. Gladstone (2-5); 32. El Monte (1-6); 33. Ganesha (2-5), 34. Wilson (1-7); 35. Workman (2-5).

Tribskin Pick’em: Bishop Amat should finally beat Alemany; Bonita gets edge over West Covina

Aram Tolegian and I will go head-to-head picking football games throughout the season. He edged me out the past two seasons, but it’s not happening this year, not when we’re playing for a Slater’s 50-50 burger.

Aram Tolegian (14-3, last week); (112-48, season total)
Fred Robledo (13-5, last week); (114-46, season total)

hagsLast Week: Aram picked up two games to pull within two. Aram missed taking Chino Hills over Charter Oak, Ayala over Damien and La Puente over Duarte. I also missed taking La Puente along with taking Covina over Baldwin Park, Diamond Ranch over Diamond Bar, Mountain View over Gabrielino and Workman over Ganesha.

This week’s games and predictions With Crespi beating Loyola and Alemany knocking off Notre Dame the Serra is a crapshoot, with only Crespi, having played just one game, the only team without a loss. Even though Amat lost its opener to Notre Dame, it still controls its own destiny by winning, and they have to win Friday at home against Alemany or they could all but forget their playoff chances. Amat has never beaten Alemany since Alemany joined the Serra, and Amat’s coming off a bye week, so there are no excuses. Take Amat, they have to have it and they will get it. West Covina at Bonita is another close one, but I’m taking surging Bonita, who appears to be getting its second wind. Can Glendora bounce back after its first defeat and beat Etiwanda? They should.

Northview baseball coach Darren Murphy leaves to take over at South Hills


For all intents and purposes, Darren Murphy appeared to have his dream job coaching baseball at Northview High School.
He’s a Viking alumnus and helped build the program into one of the best in the Valley.
But there are certain jobs that you have to answer when called.
Murphy did so, agreeing to become just the third South Hills baseball coach since 1975. He succeeds Kevin Smith, who took a similar position at Mt. San Antonio College.

VIDEO: CIF talking with Diamond Ranch and Diamond Bar about Friday Night’s Brawl

The end of the Fox Sports Video shows the fight between Diamond Bar and Diamond Ranch. CIF is aware of the incident and has been in contact with representatives for both schools. If anything happens as a result, it probably won’t be ruled on until at least Monday. For now, fast forward to the end of the video and you be the judge.

“We are aware of the situation and are awaiting incident reports from the officials assigned to the contest.” CIF spokesperson, Thom Simmons

The CIF-Southern Section was in touch with Diamond Bar and Diamond Ranch high school officials Saturday morning as part of its initial investigation of an on-field brawl between the schools’ football teams during a Hacienda League game Friday night.
The teams game was halted with a little more than three minutes left by game officials after the melee occurred with Diamond Ranch leading, 34-20.
Diamond Ranch coach Roddy Layton said three of his players received injuries from the fight and were unable to perform their usual Saturday duties. Layton also said a parent of one of the players may file criminal charges against an adult who allegedly forced a Diamond Ranch player to the ground.

Football: Ranking the biggest surprises and disappointments with a month left before playoffs

1. Glendora (6-0)
– Glendora was 3-7 and 1-4 in the Baseline with nothing to make you believe they could turn it around. I thought they would take a year off and wait for the Palomares league. Then some sophomore QB name Matt Fink came along and here they’re, undefeated and ranked sixth in the powerful Inland Division.
2. Diamond Ranch (5-1) – The Panthers didn’t seem like they were improving in recent years, going 7-4 last year and getting routed 49-0 by La Serna in the first round of the playoffs. It has been a long time since coach Roddy Layton guided them to back-to-back title games, and was wondering if they would ever get back or even close. This could be the year, they’re ranked second in the Southeast and can take control of the Hacienda with a win at Diamond Bar, Friday.
3. Pomona (6-0) — The Red Devils were 6-5 and 4-2 in the Valle Vista and only lost 24-7 to eventual champion Monrovia in the first round of the playoffs in 2012. But even if you thought they would improve, who thought they would be unbeaten through six games and might possibly stay that way until facing San Dimas in Week 10?
4. Rosemead (5-1) — The Panthers stunk in the first year without coach Matt Koffler, going 4-6 and missing the playoffs. A year later, they look like serious Mission Valley League contenders and are ranked 10th in the Mid-Valley poll.
5. Baldwin Park (5-1) – Even though the Braves were crushed last week against San Dimas, they were undefeated the first five weeks after going 0-10 last year. Again, the only direction they could go was up, but nobody thought they would be unbeaten halfway through the season. Another team you could have put on this list was Bassett, 3-3 overall but a perfect 3-0 in the Montview.

1. West Covina (3-4)– The Bulldogs compete for championships, that’s the bar they raised by winning back-to-back titles in 2010 and ’11. But things have unraveled, they’re 3-4 and in danger of missing the playoffs. It didn’t help that Antonio Noodles Hull transferred to Diamond Bar, but as much as they’re struggling, would he have made that much of a difference anyway?
2. El Monte (1-5) — One year after its greatest season since 1979 and player of the year Brandon Martinez, who led them to an 8-4 record and league title, the Eagles are having one of the worst years in the Valley at 1-5 with a strong possibility of finishing 1-9.
3. Rowland (2-5) — A season ago the Raiders tied for the Hacienda League title and usually are contenders for a playoff spot. But they’ve fallen off the map, losing five straight, including a loss to Walnut, dropping it to last in the Hacienda. They probably won’t win another game, finishing 2-8, something you haven’t seen in a while.
4. Damien (2-4) – I know the Spartans played a tough schedule, but I thought coach Mark Paredes’ arrival would be similar to the arrival of Amat coach Steve Hagerty when he guided the Lancers to a 7-4 record and playoff berth in his first season. And I certainly didn’t expect them to get blown out the way they did against Charter Oak last week. Now I have serious doubts they make the playoffs.
5. Charter Oak (2-4) — You have to put them on this list because they started 0-4 for the first time in more than two decades. There are always expectations at Charter Oak. But I’ll give them this, they’ve won two straight and unlike the other teams in the disappointment section, they have a great chance to still turn it around. The others, I’m not so sure.

Charter Oak hoping to use momentum to knock off Chino Hills

biglour“We do a lot of personnel groupings and so do they,” Farrar said. “You’ve got to match up. It’s like a basketball game, you’ve go to find the best match-ups. They’re going to look for where you’re weak on a match up and we’re going to try and not show them any.
“We expect that as soon as we get off the bus. Their coach has got those guys all fired up. They are definitely going to be prepared and very happy to be playing at their place.”

Glendora talks about being No. 1 in the Valley; power Rancho Cucamonga next

STORY: “I don’t pay attention to it, but it’s neat for the kids because they get to see it,” Glendora head coach Jerry Lewallen said about his team holding the Tribune’s top spot. “I’m happy for them, but there’s a lot of good football teams out there and I’m sure there’s a lot of teams that deserve to be up on that list.
“I think it’s cool because it’s like a little test for our kids. I know they look at that kind of stuff, it’s in the paper and their parents feed it to them. But it’s a test in that since they’re playing well, but are you going to look at that or continue to do the things you’ve been doing to be successful?”
