Glendora shows Central Muscle with 34-14 win over Los Altos; Bishop Amat falls to Chino Hills, 45-28; Damien routs St. Paul 44-0

Scoring updates and final scores of tonight’s games in the San Gabriel Valley, Pasadena and Whittier
Tartans
Glendora flexes its muscle: Glendora got it first taste of what the CIF Southern Section Central Division feels like after years of struggle in the Baseline League and Inland Division.
And it tasted good.
Glendora, ranked seventh in the Central, wore down sixth-ranked Los Altos and took advantage of big Conquerors penalties that led to momentum-changing points on its way to a 34-14 victory.

Damien routs St. Paul: That talk of a resurgence for the St. Paul High School football team might have to be put on hold.
Damien is another story.
Dylan Thigpen rushed for 191 yards and two touchdowns and Michael Boragine threw for 114 and three scores as the host Spartans overwhelmed the Swordsmen 44-0 in a nonleague game on Friday.

Friday’s results
Glendora 34, Los Altos 14 — The Tartans are a potential beast in the Central while the Conqs still struggle with step-up games.
Chino Hills 45, Bishop Amat 28 — That folks is what you call a big Pac-5 step back. They better finish top three in the Mission because they just blew a wild card.
St. Francis 35, Monrovia 13 — The King of the Star-News area is still Jimmy Bonds’ Golden Knights.
Damien 44, St. Paul 0 — Nothing like a Spartans butt-whipping over an undefeated team to feel good again.
Colony 42, Pomona 36 — Forget that the Red Devils lost, that’s a competitive result against a solid upper-division foe.
Azusa 20, Arcadia 12 — Huge, huge win and morale booster for the Aztecs.
Charter Oak 41, Bell Gardens 0 — Saw this Chargers butt-whipping coming a mile away.
San Dimas 42, Rosemead 6 — Ahem, and forgive the pun, the Saints go marching on.
Bonita 50, South El Monte 6 — ‘Cats have looked great since the Monrovia beatdown.
La Serna 37, South Hills 18 — At least the Huskies scored some points for a change.
Northview 35, Walnut 6 — Only undefeated team left in the Tribune area.
Bassett 49, Bosco Tech 16 – Time for the Olympians to move up on Robledo’s Super 32 rankigns.
Brea Olinda 23, Diamond Bar 20 — After a great 2-0 start, two straight setbacks for the purple.
Claremont 52, Covina 19 — Starting to wonder if the Wolfpack are the early Palomares favorites.
Diamond Ranch 17, Schurr 7 — Panthers D steps up when offense struggles.
Flintridge Prep 29, Sierra Vista 14 – The Dons’ struggles hit a new low.
Baldwin Park 49, Ganesha 6 — Braves offense is clicking.
La Puente 58, Wilson 8 – For Warriors coach Scott Morrison, must have felt nice beating Greg Gano, who replaced him at Damien in the first place.
Arroyo 27, Rowland 15 — Knights warming up nicely for the MVL
Tesoro 38, West Covina 7 — This probably wasn’t the year to test their Pac-5 worthiness.
Duarte 38, Mountain View 21 — Falcons finally get in the win column.
Keppel 50, Workman 26 — You know it’s not going right when Keppel smashes you.

    SP over Damien 13-6

  • The truth and nothing but…

    St. Paul opponents combine record? 0-9! If this isn’t fools gold I don’t know what is.

  • Tan K Solot

    Glendora wins by at least 3 TDs. CH limps out a loser. This won’t be close.

    • MoreKetchup

      1/2 isn’t that bad.

  • AMAT 73

    Good luck to all the teams of the SGV for well played and injury free games. To the Men in Blue , play hard and leave nothing on the field . AMAT WILL SHINE !!!!!!!

  • John Thomas

    Nothing better than “Amat Freddie” losing to Chino Hills. That midget knows nothing about football and runs his mouth 24/7. Most biased midget anywhere.

    • AZTEC PRIDE

      Garbage POST!

    • FredJ

      Thank you, even the “unbiased” Calpreps computers had Amat winning … that’s why they play the games …Sincerely, one proud small guy

        Kinda begining to wonder who it is that always seems to call you out this way, but who is oh so silent when your right ? FC perhaps ?

        Freddy,

        Why do the Bloggers feel they have to drop down and degrade other bloggers a it
        is all just our opinions. Unless you are a coach what if any thing we
        enter on this blog affects the out come of a game. The Kids play and are to
        only one scoring, tackling and blocking and making the plays. The coaches call
        the plays and if the kid doesn’t execute the parent scream that it was a crappy
        play. Tell me what coach has on his play sheet a kid dropping a pass or
        blowing passing coverage. I remember when the blog was like a bunch of guys
        sitting around the table giving their opinions. Now along with some analyzing
        of the games it has to be degrading as well.
        Unless you can get to all of the games and give it the EYE Test then you
        are only ready what happen and games are closer or not so close with out.

        One HS Fan Opinion.

      Good job Chino Hills, I was getting worried that BA was heading to a playoff spot, Freddie is right, wildcard may be out

    • Conq ’76

      Wow John, pretty harsh…I suggest you apply for his job and present the Trib with all your credentials identifying all of your expertise, obviously you have a lot to offer the rest of us dolts…

    Monrovia is good But St. Francis was just that much better. Monrovia has talant and will bounce back. But do they have what it takes to make it to the end. There are too many strong teams in this Tuff division

    • New York

      There is no team in the Central that is as well coached with key talent as Saint Francis.

      • The Fan

        Good Point New York.

      • Bulldogs have bite

        St. Francis is in the Southeast Division not the Central right?

        • New York

          Correct. My point was that there is no St. Francis in the Central.

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    Way to go AZUSA! Good Job Coach Scherf,and I knew you could pull a W out of your Hat! Good win tonight over Arcadia!

    • jcaz

      Aztec Pride. Great win, they really needed it, but here’s my thoughts. They run the table the rest of the way. I dont see anyone left who can match up with your guys

  • JAACoachingblunders

    Offensive play calling was once again a joke, and so was the defense. You need to play some press defense!!! Give me a cushion and I will eat you up all day!

    BTW…. You happy Gilligan??? Your boy got the start and look what happened.

  • Conq ’76

    LA once again under-performs. Glendora was quicker and executed well BUT LA could have made things a lot more interesting if they hadn’t shot themselves in the foot a few times, which is their M.O. in close games. Several of Sylva’s passes took on a life of their own as they sailed directly to a Tartan defender and an ill-advised (i.e. “bonehead”), personal foul call after the Tartan kicker missed a field goal allowed Glendora to go on and score a TD instead.

    LA could make up for what they lack in overall team speed if they would just stop handing opportunities to their opponents.

    But it’s high school ball….
