Charter Oak 53, Yucaipa 33: Not that Charter Oak’s 53-33 victory over visiting Yucaipa in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Inland Division playoffs Friday is going to make state power and top-seeded Vista Murrieta shake in its boots, but it was the Chargers’ seventh consecutive victory after nearly squandering a big fourth-quarter lead.
San Dimas 48, Gabrielino 6: Host San Dimas defeated Gabrielino 48-6 in the first round of the CIF-SS Mid Valley Division playoffs Friday night. The win gave San Dimas coach Bill Zernickow his 100th career win.The Saints dominated early and led 48-3 at halftime to force a running clock in the second half.
Norwalk 42, West Covina 27: West Covina could not have imagined getting off to a better start, but in the end it was ability of Rashaad Penny as a receiver that made all the difference as Norwalk came from behind to win 42-27 in the first round of the CIF-SS Southeast Division playoffs on Friday.
Upland 21, South Hills 14: After earning a share of the Baseline League title with a victory over Rancho Cucamonga last week, Upland mustered enough grit to get past West Covina South Hills, 21-14, in the first round of the CIF-SS Inland Division playoffs Friday night.
Arroyo 56, Baldwin Park 53: Those were sighs of relief coming from the Arroyo High School sideline rather than sounds of celebration. The second-seeded Knights (10-1) had to come from behind in the fourth quarter and then hung on for a 56-53 win over at-large selection Baldwin Park in a wild CIF-Southern Section Mid-Valley Division first-round playoff game.
Duarte 27, Maranatha 17: Duarte used a swarming defense to keep Maranatha’s outstanding offense in check, allowing the Falcons to advance to the second round of the CIF-SS Northwest Division playoffs with a 27-17 road win Friday night.
Diamond Bar 63, Downey 29: Downey High’s reign as CIF-SS Southeast Division kingpin ended abruptly Friday night. The host Vikings were ousted from the playoffs in decisive fashion as visiting Diamond Bar stormed to a 63-29 victory.

    It’s funny when your on top and everybody wants to jump on the bandwagon. But there’s always an upset in the playoffs, and i’m expecting the biggest one to come in the 1st round. #cifplayoffs

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      Who’s going down…Drum Roll Please…

      • AMAT 73

        Think positive , it should be who’s moving on !!!!!! Sound the trumpets !!!!!

        • GP AKA Green Machine

          I am not worried about the Cats..It will be sold out and rocking at mtown tonight

          • AMAT 73

            Of course not and neither was i . I was speaking of all the other teams .

      • D-Mo

        REV will beat RC

        • GP AKA Green Machine

          Not a chance…RC should be tuned in tonight…I was think BP over Arroyo, and West Co Over Norwalk

          • WCDan

            Greenie, West Co was without 7 key starters last night, 3 big offensive linemen,(Eric Quevado & the Garcia Twins) their D- End (Josh Herrera), their tailback/OLB(Steve Garcia), their Fullback/OLB(Josh Best), and their free safety(Isaih Love).
            Yet despite not haveing these starters the Bulldogs came out firing on all cylinders and had Norwalk on their heels for most of the first half, Norwalk pulled away a little in the third qtr as Rashad Penny did his thing and Norwalks big line started wearing down the Bulldogs.
            Without the injuries I’m pretty sure your call on the West Co upset would have been a good call.

          • The Chef

            Would “Ifs and Buts” be candy and nuts then everyday would be a Merry Christmas… I don’t think I ever saw a recaps on a WestCo loss that didn’t include at least 3 good excuses. What about saying Westco tried hard but without the right recruits, they didn’t have the horses… You sound like Mags paid apologist… See you at the JAA playoffs looking for “transfers”

          • WCDan

            Chef, you seem to know the technique, keep up the good work, who’s your team anyway? Or are you just another blog troll?

          • Gamer

            Did they all have bad grades, what was the excuse? All injured? Or possibly was it “karma” you know what that is? Hope they are all healthy.

          • WCDan

            Right Tackle had a broken ankle in a car accident, three more starters lost in the Los Altos mud game (TB/OLB, FS, RG/DT) & Three more lost this week in practice, (C, FB/OLB, DE). Call it what you want, didn’t know you were hindu.

      Real Talk… You’re making me “REAL NERVOUS”! LOL… AZUSA, can’t go out in the first round, JUST CAN’T!!!

      • blue

        Well they did aztec pride and it was a horrible way to go out.

  • New York

    Charter Oak, the bracket buster!

    • Inland_FB_Fan

      Um, No…lol. I don’t think either of them “fear” CO. CO will win tonight, and lose next week.

      • New York

        The old guard at the CIF office doesn’t like Vista. That is why they gave them Charter Oak in the second round. Vista does not want to make that bus ride into the SGV.

        • D-Mo

          No way. I thought CO was the winner of that flip. You saying if CO wins tonight they are traveling next week?

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            This team played all the Corona schools and Vista. They should be formidable. But CO has the size and speed advantage…CO by 14…Then on the road to Vista and then the annual turning in of the pads…However Mtown’s New York says that CO is a bracket buster. What do you think?


            I know nothing of Yucaipa except they have a rep in baseball. They have been to the playoffs in football before – nothing new to them. The real question is….what CO team shows up tonight? The world beaters or the keystone cops?
            Limit mistakes/penalties and if special teams play well, I would think it’ll be by 14 or more. CO D can save them from themselves. Hope it doesn’t come to that.

      • GP AKA Green Machine

        Nobody is for certain who will win or lose tonight. I know one thing….Turning in your pads sucks…even if you are going on to college.

      • Here’s JOHNNY, or Little Johnn

        First smart thing Mr. South Corona has said all year.

  • m ramirez

    how about giving B.P. a lil more love,remember this was an 0-10 last year and to be in the playoffs its a big accomplishment no matter who they played..

  • brad mill

    DBar at Downey tonight…Should be interesting. Didn’t think anyone could be as big as Norwalk. Four of their offensive linemen were 6-3 300lbs or better. I was wrong…Downey has 15 players over 250 listed on their roster. DBar has three. If DBar had Kanya Bell (one of the top three players on the team who is out for the year and only played in three games) and Antonio Hull I think we would have more than a fifty percent chance just because of the speed advantage we would have in every skill position. Without them I think DBar is capable of winning but will have to score at least 30 points to have a chance. It’s dark and cloudy out there right now. if it rains, the advantage goes even greater to Downey. Don’t forget they are defending conference CIF champs.

    • xiledsoviet

      I think they have an advantage with the RB

      • brad mill

        So much for the advantage at running back…I don’t understand why you never hear the name Tyler Brown when people discuss top players in the San Gabriel Valley? He ran for 283 yards against Downey and had 98 yards receiving. He also caused Downey to pooch kick all night, giving DBar excellent field position all night.

        • Brahma Alum

          T Brown has been playing out of his mind all season long. The kid has been breaking off big plays all year on runs, receptions out of the backfield, kick off returns and great coverage out of the corner spot on defense. I’d take T Brown over any RB in the valley.

  • 12th man

    Go to youtube & type in: (Friday Night Live – Darnell Docket) & you will see the most intimidating high school player of all time!!! This kid is a beast!! A man among boys playing at a professional level..

  • Football fan

    Diamond bar played amazing. Look out. This team is playing great. I am impressed.

    • FredJ

      Even with Noodles I don’t think Diamond Bar can beat La Serna … but I should will love seeing them at full strength and with nothing to lose.

  • Holly Cow

    And Moses went to the Burning Bush, and God told him, “LET NOODLES PLAY” And God stuck down Coach Maggiore with a bolt of lightning.

    • Steve Ramirez


    • FredJ

      I’m wondering how Diamond Bar is going to use Antonio Noodles Hull against La Serna… This is dangerous, La Serna has no idea what to expect. This is the game of the week

      • Brahma Alum

        My best guess is that DB will use Noodles to replace Bell on both Offense and Defense. DB has been playing all year without that explosive speed that Bell gave us on the opposite side of the field from Cordel as well as that shut down corner on the defensive side of the ball. I just wished we had Bell available to us as well.

      • LA Dad

        This guy is going to be in preseason form. I dont think he is anything more than a motivator for DB. In the end, I agree with you, La Serna will be there on Championship Night. The only reason that I haven’t claimed them winners yet is because my LA team is still in it but they have a big game against Muir.

    • WCDan

      Your an idiot, but have a good day.

      • Holly Cow

        I’ll pray for you Dan.

        • WCDan

          I’ll take prayer anytime, only thing is with all your pent up hate and anger for Maggiore and WC do you think your prayers get past your cieling?

      • Football fan

        Actually, West Covina staff looks like the idiots here. They are hypocrites. They got a transfer from south hills, no problem. But they choose to protest Noodles. Just flat out hypocrites.

        • WCDan

          It’s over and done with, what ever happened, happened, be happy Noodles gets his chance and DBar is going to the second round, it’s been a while since DBar has been in playoffs. I know Maggiore pretty well and he is not the way some of you peeps over there want to portray him as. Good luck too Noodles and against La Serna should be a great game.

          • PatrickHT

            Yes! i think Maine and the boys are over this already…their focus is playoffs! Regardless of a win or loss against LaSerna, this will have been sort of a cinderella season for the Brahmas.

        • MoreKetchup

          Typical fact ignoring poster. The whole problem wasn’t about transfers. It was about athletically motivated trades. Last time I checked, the transfer from SH didn’t contact CM or WC before deciding to leave either. Nice try attempting to utilize a false analogy though.

          • Gamer

            With no due respect, aren’t all transfers athletically motivated? We all know the answer to that.

          • PatrickHT

            You may be right, but how do you know if their was contact or not?

          • MoreKetchup

            I know this because the kid already had friends and the such coming to WC. He grew up in this district so he naturally came for those reasons. He might have come for athletic reasons, but there was no contact with Coach M or and of the coaches for that matter. I believe the athletically motivated rule is outdated, but until it is changed, it has to be reported when there is evidence such as an email or letter or the such. CIF does tend to pick on WC so we want to be as honest as possible.

  • Valley Athletics

    And some say charter doesn’t belong in the inland division . Winning first round games is enough proof that they belong. Wow what a beating the citrus belt league took .

  • Inland_FB_Fan

    WOW! Chino Hills choked last night. They had Chapparal on the ropes 28-7 with 1:40 to go in the half and they “pooched” licked the kickoff to the 35 and Chapparal returned it to the CH 35. They scored with :01 left in the half to make it 28-14. The second half was all Chapparal . They scored 24 unanswered points to win 31-28 with a field goal with :41 seconds left. Chino Hills got the ball back and moved it…the QB scrambled to the 15 and got out of bounds with :02 left but the Chapparal clock guy let the clock run……after a discussion the refs didn’t see it and called game over. CH needs a new defensive coordinator. They gave up way too many points this season. and their pass defense scheme is horrible!! Just because he’s Bechtal’s buddy shouldn’t matter….the kids deserved better. The kids have been talking about their lack of confidence in him all year. ….not a good thing. I saw Bub and Whetzel on the field shaking their heads last night. They would not have let this happen.

    • FredJ

      I couldn’t believe that, I didn’t realize they lost until I got back to the office. They were up so big … heartbreaking …

  • FredJ

    My Southeast and Mid-Valley predictions looks pretty good right now, Muir and La Serna in the Southeast final and San Dimas, Monrovia in the Mid-Valley….I also still kinda like Rancho Cucamonga and Corona Centennial in the Inland …

  • Conq ’76

    Los Altos OL and DL both went “blow by blow” with Paramount and was able to exert its will in the fourth. LA played more opportunistic ball with two second half fumble recoveries for TD’s and Marcos returned yet another punt for a touchdown. Without those scores the margin of victory would have been only 6 points. Give the LA defense the “kudos” for this win, it was a typical “bend but don’t break” effort. Each second half Paramount possession resulted in either an LA stop or the Pirates would be marching when the “D” took the ball and brought it back to the house. LA did move away from its “All Marcos into the heart of the line all the time” strategy and got a few more weapons into its offensive scheme. A few sweeps forced Paramount to widen their defensive posture to try and contain a bit better, which resulted in a softer inside defense.

    No illusions about next week, but I doubt Muir is going to take anything for granted.

  • brad mill

    Thoughts on DBar’s exciting and convincing win last night. Downey is no where near the physical team that Norwalk is. There defense may have been the smallest stature wise that we played all year. They have a fantastic stadium/complex. I thought DBar’s stadium was top notch, but Downey’s was even better. Downey’s QB is a stud. That kid just kept coming and competing. DBar was relentless in attacking and it demoralized Downey. Downey would score and 90 seconds or later DBar had matched it. Downey was totally unprepared by the speed of the entire DBar team as evidenced in the number of holding and facemask penalties assessed against them. Cordell is the best BLOCKING wide receiver I’ve seen in high school. Just shows the kind of kid he is, when he isn’t getting the ball he’s not pouting. Hull went through warm ups with the team but didn’t play of course. Just watching him warm up you can see what a special talent he is. DBar finally has learned how to use the clock at the end of the game! Can’t wait till Friday. I know no one will give DBar a chance but I know this, DBar will compete!

    • Brahma Alum

      Your right, Cordell is a fantastic Blocker. It’s fun to watch him man handle those small, skinny DBacks that are trying to guard him. I too was impressed with the stadium, the only thing missing from the stadium is “on field” team rooms. However, I still prefer DBar’s stadium with the built into the hillside grand stands, team rooms and the fantastic back drop of the sun setting over the hills to the west early in the season.

      • Inland_FB_Fan

        D-Bar is a special place, Coached MANY games in that stadium. Some special games with some special players including one Ryan Maine. Glad to see him get the Brahmas back to the playoffs. Good luck to Mainer and the Brahmas this week.

  • LA Dad

    How is Noodles situation different than Peyton at Bonita? Why was one allowed to pllay and the other not. I believe Noodles was at West Covina, where was Peyton at?

    • Here’s JOHNNY, or Little Johnn

      Peyton went back to his original district, being that his looser parents work for the district they can go to any school they wanted within the district.
