Scoring updates and final scores of tonight’s games in the San Gabriel Valley, Pasadena and Whittier
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.
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.
