Tribune Super 32 Football Rankings: Los Altos and Charter Oak take over top two spots

1. Los Altos (1-0) – Dominated defending Central champ San Marino 38-6 and Tyler Nevens showed he’s a next-level talent with four touchdowns.
2. Charter Oak (1-0) – Chargers answered their question at QB with Bret Clemetson throwing a schoool-record six touchdowns in a big win over Northview.
3. Bishop Amat (0-1) – Mater Dei made Bishop Amat look like a Division 3 or 4 team, but Mater Dei is going to do that to a lot of teams this year. Jury still out in terms of just how far the fall from last year’s semifinal team is.
4. Damien (1-0) – Spartans dominated a Chino team that was good last year, winning 21-6. It’s been a while since Spartans fans could be excited about their team. Is this year the one?
5. Glendora (1-0) – Question was how they would do without all-everything Matt Fink? Tartans QB Bryce Wooldridge answered that with a nice display of running and passing in 33-19 win over Kaiser.
6. San Dimas (1-0) — Saints ended three-year losing streak to Bonita with an eye-opening 42-14 win over the Bearcats.
7. Northview (0-1) — Vikings not ready for a team like Charter Oak, but QB Steven Comstock and Antwaun Ayers are going to lead to a lot of victories.
8. Diamond Ranch (1-0) — Didn’t show a lot of firepower in 14-7 with over South Hills, but always good to show you can play defense well enough to win when offense is struggling.
9. West Covina (0-1) — Bulldogs struggled in season-opening loss to Colony and it won’t get any easier hosting St. Francis next.
10. Baldwin Park (1-0) — Braves opened with easy 27-0 shutout over Workman, but schedule will get tougher.
The Rest: 11. South Hills (0-1), 12. Nogales (1-0), 13. Rowland (1-0), 14. Arroyo (0-0-1); 15. Covina (0-0-1); 16. Bonita (0-1); 17. South El Monte (1-0), 18. Mountain View (1-0), 19. Ganesha (1-0), 20. Sierra Vista (1-0), 21. Azusa (0-0), 22. Duarte (0-0), 23. Pomona (0-1), 24. Diamond Bar (0-1), 25. Walnut (0-1), 26. El Monte (0-1), 27. Rosemead (0-1), 28. Bassett (0-1), 29. La Puente (0-1), 30. Wilson (0-1), 31. Workman (0-1), 32. Gladstone (0-1),

Los Altos hammers San Marino; San Dimas Smudges Bonita; Bishop Amat suffers one of worst losses ever


San Dimas routs Bonita to claim the Smudge: It was hard to tell where the irritation of losing last season’s CIF championship game ended and the San Dimas High school football team’s contempt for season-opening rival Bonita began.
Whatever the combination of pent-up offseason emotions released Friday night, the result was a 42-14 San Dimas victory at Citrus College.
The Saints ended a three-year losing streak to Bonita and celebrated accordingly after scoring 28 of the game’s final 35 points to pull away in the second half.
“We didn’t like the way last year ended,” San Dimas coach Mark Holman said. “And we’ve been preparing for these guys since January.”

Glendora QB Bryce Wooldridge leads Tartans to win: Glendora High may have lost its star quarterback of a year ago to USC, but the Tartans found out in their 2016 season opener Friday night that their offense appears to be in very talented hands.
Junior Bryce Wooldridge passed for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and ran for another 147 yards and two scores to lead Glendora to a 33-19 victory at Kaiser.
Wooldridge’s offensive performance behind a stout offensive line was more than enough to overcome a Kaiser team that struggled with mistakes and penalties in its opening game.

nevinsLos Altos routs San Marino: Like most of the Los Altos High School football team’s opponents, San Marino knew exactly what was coming but couldn’t stop it.
The Titans’ defense got a healthy dose of Conquerors’ standout running back Tyler Nevens, and by the end of the night the senior standout had run wild in a 38-6 win in the season opener for both teams on Friday.
“It’s truly a blessing,” said Nevens. “All of my teammates, we all came together. We were all hyped up for this game. We knew San Marino was going to come out with some intensity and we just had to come out with more.”Nevens rushed for 285 yards and four touchdowns. The Titans tried to match Los Altos’ ground game with one of their own, a stark change from last season’s pass-happy attack which averaged 46 points per game, but the Conquerors’ defense was having none of it.

Mater Dei hands Bishop Amat one of worst home losses: Mater Dei rolled into Kiefer Stadium on Friday night and routed an upstart Bishop Amat team attempting to move forward a season after graduating one of its more talented senior classes in recent memory, 63-14.
In last season’s 24-21 win over Amat, Mater Dei starved the potent Lancers’ offense by controlling the time of possession with 53 rushing attempts. No such strategy was needed this time.
Mater Dei sophomore quarterback JT Daniels came out of the gates firing. Daniels completed three of his first four passes for touchdowns, leading the Monarchs to an early 21-0 lead.On the game’s opening play, Daniels connected with Osiris St. Brown for 72 yards. A play later, he found Osiris’ brother, Amon-Ra St. Brown, who snatched an 8-yard touchdown pass out of the air with one hand.

Diamond Ranch holds on to beat South Hills: Diamond Ranch kicked off its 2016 football season with a 14-7 win over South Hills on Friday night and gave Eric Martinez his first win as a head coach.
The Panthers scored on their first possession of the game, a 19-yard pass from Justin Tong to Alec Flanagen with 4:49 left in the first quarter.
“We figured we could move the ball like that to get our running game going,” Martinez said. “(Sophomore) Conner Clark did well running the ball his first time under the lights.”
An interception by Carter Henderson, who ran the ball back 80 yards, set up the Panthers second score as they expanded their lead to 14-0 midway through the third quarter.

Friday’s Results
Mater Dei 63, Bishop Amat 14 — Probably worst home loss in history.
San Dimas 42, Bonita 14 – Nobody saw this pounding coming.
Los Altos 38, San Marino 6 — Tyler Nevens 285 yards and 4 TDs.
Damien 21, Chino 6 Could this be the year Spartans break through?
Alta Loma 48, Diamond Bar 28 — Brahmas keep taking steps back each year.
Diamond Ranch 14, South Hills 7 — Panthers grind out win over offensive challenged Huskies
Montebello 40, El Monte 6Lions figure to struggle all year.
Nogales 37, Garey 8 Nobles are the team to watch in the Miramonte.
Glendora 33, Kaiser 19 — Tartans better than expected, quarterback was great.
Sierra Vista 10, La Puente 0 — Dons open season with a big shutout.
Oak Hills 45, Pomona 7 — Red Devils aren’t what they were two years ago.
South Pasadena 35, Rosemead 20Panthers rally comes up short.
Rowland 42, Walnut 14 — Raiders could be team to watch in Valle Vista.
Colony 49, West Covina 14Bulldogs tied it at 14-14, then fell apart.
Baldwin Park 27, Workman 0 — Braves do everything in shutout win.
South El Monte 40, Gladstone 7 — Remember, someone named Mike Mooney on SELM staff.
Mountain View 48, Bassett 34 — Vikings open season in style.
Hoover 28, Wilson 13 — Opponent gave Wildcats shot at win, but still comes up short.
