Get ready for a wild finish in the Hacienda

To nobody’s surprise, the Hacienda League playoff race got even more muddied on Friday.
The guilty party was the Bonita High School football team, which kept Los Altos from clinching second place and a guaranteed playoff berth by stunning the Conquerors, 44-32.
10-4-13 DRANCH11“That’s what we were hoping for,” Bonita head coach Adrian Medrano said when asked how it felt to wreak havoc on the league standings. “We don’t want a repeat of last year’s nightmare end to the season. We’re looking to avoid that at all cost. We want to make sure we take care of business next week against Diamond Ranch.”

As someone on the blog so accurately pointed out, here are the scenarios.
1. BoHi beats DR and LA beats WC = #1 DR, #2 BoHi, #3 LA with DB as possible wildcard
2. DR beats BoHi and LA beats WC = #1 DR, #2 LA, #3 DB with WC as possible wildcard
3. BoHi beats DR and WC beats LA = #1 DR, #2 WC, #3 BoHi with LA as possible wildcard
4. DR beats Bohi and WC beats LA = #1 DR, #2 WC, #3 DB with as BoHi possible wildcard

All scenarios assume that DB beats Walnut.

Scenario #4 requires a point system to be used to break a 3 way tie with DB, LA, Bohi. DB wins with the tie breaker with more quality wins vs Bohi, WC, and Walnut (projected). Bohi then wins remaining tie breaker with LA due to Head to Head (after DB is elevated to #3).

Scenario’s #1,2, and 3 are all based on record and Head to Head eliminations.

    Why were 3 of LA’s starters not on the field vs Bonita is the question…. Injuries or ineligibility?

      I sure wish one of our respected REPORTERS, ( I really do respect both Fred and Aram), would give us some sort of info regarding the status of LA’s roster. I asked several times about the LA QB situation last week and nothing was ever reported. I do not want to take away anything from Bonita, but if LA is playing with a depleted roster, it would be nice to know….

        I agree…

        Maybe LA’s Coach is not interested in making that info available so that WC doesn’t know what to prep. for.

        • Conq ’76

          Its possible I guess, but a poster knew something was up early last week and still not a peep from Fred or Aram either way. If Ziola was not forthcoming with the info, that, in itself would be worth reporting.

            Releasing information to the media about disciplinary actions against a kid is a very slippery slope these days. Rumor has it that both admins at DB and DR levied additional actions against some players and coaches but nothing has been made public. I doubt you will hear anything from the school and coach. If the kid himself says something it’s on him.

            I certainly understand what you are saying, but I think with the QB at least it was an injury problem, yet not a word. If the QB at Amat, South Hills or DR were out, I would expect at least a comment or two from Fred or Aram, but with LA, nothing…

    Both games will be very competitive games. I see the Diamond Ranch vs Bonita in favor of Diamond Ranch. Not only will they be playing at home but it will be most likely their senior night. The first half might be close but DR will simply be too much for Bonita. Though Diamond Ranch did already win the Hacienda, the opportunity is still there for the top seed in the Southeast. In the playoffs its all about the bracket and the higher the seed the greater the possibilities.

    For the Los Altos vs West Covina game it will be a tough, hard fought match. Both teams are very physical and match up very well. Last week Los Altos was without their starting middle linebacker, quarterback, and tackle, which made their offense one dimensional. This week they will most likely have their quarterback and linebacker back which will be of very much help. The keys for Los Altos is to create space for Marcos to run. Their defense must also stop Sydney Jones from any big plays. For West Covina their key offensively will be to use Jones every way they can. On defense they need to stop Los Altos run game. It should be a good game as last year the game was won by a last second field goal.
