Glendora’s Kale Morton: “It feels good, because last year (Los Osos) beat us on our home field to win the league. It feels good to come here and get the win.”
Glendora coach Dan Henley: “This means its an outright league championship and the last time we’ll be in this league, which is a quality league, so we’re really happy to be in this position. Kale Morton has been great all season and he came through again today.”
