Glendora proves its a force in the Central: Glendora followed the same script that it used to win the Mayor’s Trophy last year.
In a battle of CIF-Southern Section Central Division powers, The Tartans trailed Charter Oak at the half and came back to beat the Chargers in the last few minutes, 38-37, at Citrus College on Thursday night.
The winning score came on Justin Frazier’s 8-yard run with 4:40 left in the gam, which capped a five-play drive following a fumble recovery by Joel Stone at the Chargers’ 18-yard line.
The Chargers appeared to have stopped the Tartans on a fourth-down play at the 16-yard line, but a pass interference penalty gave Glendora life.
“That’s what you’re going to get when you get Charter Oak-Glendora,” Tartans coach Jerry Lewallen said. “That was just two good football teams. We got off to a quick start and Charter Oak made some plays to get back in it.”
Northview’s loses first game: The La Sierra High School football team mounted a massive second-half comeback Thursday night to hand Northview its first loss of the year, 41-34, in a non-league contest.
The Eagles trailed 28-7 at halftime, but outscored the Vikings 34-6 in the second half to improve to 2-3 at the end of nonleague play. La Sierra equaled its 41 points from last week, making it five consecutive games with at least 20 points.
The Vikings had held each of their last three opponents to just six points, going on to win each game. The defense picked up where it left off for the first half of the game. However, La Sierra managed to turn around its offense to drop Northview’s record to 4-1 as it goes into the league portion of the schedule.
