Arroyo, winning its 11th consecutive game, defeated Schurr 28-14 in the Mid-Valley Division quarterfinals Friday night at Schurr high, but not without a furious last-minute Schurr drive for a potential tying score.

The Red Devils (10-2) couldn’t overcome an on-side kick to start the second half and a controversial offensive pass interference penalty later in the third quarter as the Spirits broke open a close defensive battle in the second half.
Duarte can’t keep up: Bishop Diego (10-2) built a big lead against the host Falcons to advance to the Northwest Division semifinals, 41-7. Duarte (7-5) returned a fumble for a touchdown. The Cardinals play No. 2 seed Nordhoff, a 38-20 winner over Torrance.

Muir’s super QB DeJon Williams suspended for Friday’s quarterfinal against Los Altos for controversial flag .. We’ve got video

Muir’s superstar quarterback Dejon Williams has been suspended for Friday’s huge Southeast quarterfinal at home against Los Altos because he received two taunting penalties, the second of which was caught on tape which resulted in his ejection in the final minutes of Muir’s 53-35 first-round victory over La Mirada. Per CIF rule, a player ejected must sit out the next game. What’s especially troubling is look at why he got the second taunting penalty in the video. Not sure why he got a flag. Williams points for a split-second to the sideline and then INNOCENTLY flips the ball to the referee after a touchdown. That’s a taunting penalty? Absolutely ridiculous. Horrible judgment, interpretation from the referee. It’s hard to imagine you would take away a players’ dream at a CIF title over something like this. Only the referee can rescind the decision, not CIF, and for this not to be rescinded after the fact for the sole purpose of DOING THE RIGHT THING, is horrible. But as of today, what’s in the referee report sticks. Williams is out. I’ll be honest, I doubt even Los Altos takes pleasure in this. Nobody wants to see anything like this happen to a player. It tarnishes was was building as one of the great quarterfinals between two storied and hungry programs. If this is taunting, then you might as well take the emotion out of the game altogether.

FROM CIF-SS SPOKESPERSON THOM SIMMONS: “The white hat, who has the ability and the power to rescind that ejection, is firm in his stance that the ejection is proper,” Simmons said. “The CIF-Southern Section considers the matter final and over. It’s not our place to have an opinion. Our place is to accept the report of the official and not second guess somebody who was actually on the field on the night of the event.”

Torrey Pines captured its fourth consecutive title and fifth overall with a 364 at Quail Lodge Golf Club, with Diamond Bar and Walnut tying at 396 and the Brahmas securing second place based on the sixth-golfer tiebreaker by one stroke.
