Northview holds on: What an exciting way to start the season.
Northview held off a furious rally from Rosemead to escape with a 27-21 victory in the season opener for both schools at San Dimas High School on Thursday.
Panthers quarterback Steven Nava, who struggled early, came on late to finish with 193 yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough to rally the Panthers from a 20-point second-half deficit.
Nava, who made headlines over the summer after transferring to Bishop Amat and then transferring back a couple weeks ago, threw a desperation pass on fourth-and-long with just over two-minutes left that fell incomplete, allowing the Panthers to breathe easy again.
“We have to learn how to finish the game out, but other than that we’re excited,” Vikings coach Marcel Perez said after leading 27-7 midway through the third quarter. “We came into this week knowing Rosemead’s a tough game. We’re going to line up and play and whatever happens after that is going to happen.”

La Puente Rolls to victory: La Puente has moved to the Miramonte League this season and former Montview League rival Sierra Vista is probably happy to see the Warriors go.
The Warriors scored on six of their seven first-half possessions and rolled to a 55-0 win over the Dons in a nonleague game which opened the football season for both teams.
