San Dimas drops the hammer on Covina, 42-0; Glendora, Charter Oak clinch league titles

Scoreboard updates of Friday night games in progress

San Dimas keeps Valle Vista title hopes alive: The Valle Vista League title won’t come down to a Week 10 showdown between rivals Northview and Covina for all the marbles. San Dimas, ranked sixth in the CIF-SS Mid-Valley Division, made sure of it.
The Saints kept their slim hopes for a piece of the league title alive with a surprisingly easy 42-0 victory over eighth-ranked Covina on Friday at Covina Valley District Field.

Glendora clinches Palomares: Glendora (8-1, 4-0) pulled away from host Claremont (7-2, 2-2) in the second half of a pivotal Palomares League game Friday night for a 35-14 victory.
The Tartans’ win, combined with Ayala’s last-second loss to South Hills, secured the outright league title for Glendora. It’s the Tartans’ first league title since 2009, when they were a member of the Sierra League.

Los Altos keeps playoff hopes alive: Los Altos threw the Hacienda League standings into turmoil with a 42-28 win over West Covina on Friday night.
With only one week to go in the regular season, there are four teams tied for second place, two games behind first-place Charter Oak.

Tribune Super 32 Football Rankings: Bishop Amat, Charter Oak, Glendora stand out; Damien cracks top 10

1. Bishop Amat (7-2)
— Amat is on its bye week, however, if Loyola beats Notre Dame this week, Amat will be guaranteed a playoff spot and will play Loyola in Week 10 for sole possession of second.
2. Charter Oak (7-1) — Should guarantee at least a tie for the Hacienda with a win against Walnut. But Week 10 could get interesting if West Covina beats Los Altos.
3. Glendora (7-1) – Tartans game at Claremont would clinch the Palomares title, and the Tartans would likely finish undefeated in league with Diamond Bar in Week 10.
4. Northview (7-1) –While the Vikes have an easy game with Nogales, it will be paying attention to Covina-San Dimas. A Covina win sets up a championship game against the Colts in Week 10.
5. Bonita (6-2) — ‘Cats control their own destiny. If they beat Diamond Bar and Ayala in the finale, the Cats are in the playoffs. It’s that simple.
6. Diamond Ranch (6-2) — Panthers can clinch a playoff spot with a win over Chino.
7. West Covina (4-4) –– Bulldogs still control their own destiny, but to win the Hacienda it needs to finish with wins over Los Altos and Charter Oak.
8. Pomona (6-2) — Time for the Red Devils to get out of the Miramonte, which they absolutely own.
9. Damien (4-4) — Spartans have played well of late in a tough league. The problem is, even if they beat Chino Hills this week, they’re still a longshot to make the playoffs.
10. San Dimas (5-3) — There are only two big games in the Valle Vista. The Saints lost the first one to Northview. How will it handle the second against Covina?
The Rest: 11. Los Altos (4-4), 12. Covina (6-2); 13. Arroyo (7-2); 14. Baldwin Park (5-3); 15. Diamond Bar (4-4); 16. Bassett (6-2); 17. South Hills (2-6), 18. Ganesha (5-3), 19. Rosemead (4-4); 20. Mountain View (4-4), 21. South El Monte (2-6), 22. El Monte (4-5), 23. Sierra Vista (4-4), 24. Walnut (1-7), 25. Nogales (3-5), 26. Azusa (2-7); 27. Workman (2-6), 27. La Puente (3-5), 29. Rowland (1-7); 30. Gladstone (3-5); 31. Wilson (2-6). 32. Duarte (0-8).

West Covina needs to get by Los Altos to set up Hacienda title game with Charter Oak

By Aram Tolegian
Not much has gone according to plan for the West Covina High School football team this season.
The Bulldogs haven’t had their two best offensive weapons for the entire season and have had other injury issues that have led to a 4-4 record.
But as the season winds down, West Covina finds itself still very much in the hunt for the Hacienda League championship. But a repeat league championship and even a playoff berth will become a tall task if the Bulldogs can’t get past Los Altos on Friday.
“We want to get to the point where next week (against Charter Oak) would be a league championship game,” West Covina head coach Mike Maggiore said. “It’s just a huge week and it’s the same for Los Altos. They want to get to the wchelmetplayoffs. We want to get to the playoffs.”
West Covina can thank last week’s 21-7 win over Chino for opening a whole range of possibilities. The Bulldogs are 2-1 in league, which puts them tied for second place with Diamond Ranch, which beat West Covina earlier this season. Charter Oak is in first at 3-0.
There’s numerous scenarios that could play out over the next two weeks that could really shuffle the standings. The best thing for West Covina to do is simply win out and let the rest take care of itself.
It’s only fitting the Bulldogs are in such a dramatic situation given the way things have gone this season. Standout Isaiah Love, who was expected to do big things on both offense and defense, hasn’t played this season due to a broken lahelmetbone in his neck suffered in an offseason car accident.
There’s still a chance that Love may return at some point. That’s not the case for top running back Henry Martinez, a 1,000-yard rusher from a year ago, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first game.
“Without Henry and Isaiah, we’ve had to pull together and some other guys have had to step up,” Maggiore said. “Those guys were our two best players coming back and to lose them was not what we expected. It seems like they’re starting to do that, so hopefully we can keep going.”
Last season, Charter Oak and West Covina were co-champions. The Chargers won the head-to-head meeting and went into the playoffs as the No. 1 team. Los Altos finished in third place and advanced the furthest of all by reaching the Central Division championship game.
