Nogales is the real deal, routs Rowland 35-0; Bishop Amat field goal wins it in final seconds

nogalesNogales remains undefeated: It takes a lot of the right players to make the big plays at the right time to have an undefeated season.
The Nogales High School football team is doing all the right things in the right way right now. The Nobles came up with the big plays when it counted and remained undefeated (5-0) with a 35-0 shutout against rival Rowland in front of a soldout crowd at Nogales’ stadium on Friday night.

Arroyo knocks off unbeaten South El Monte: Shortly after the Arroyo High School football team posted a 38-14 win over South El Monte in a key Mission Valley League game on Friday, the Knights posed for a team picture on the field.
The Kodak moment didn’t last long. Arroyo head coach Jim Singiser, angered his team was celebrating a late-September win, yelled for his players to break their pose, get off the field and get on the bus.
It’s that type of business-like thinking that’s helped the Knights become the Mission Valley League’s gold standard and has them well on their way to yet another league championship.

Bishop Amat wins in final seconds: All signs pointed to overtime between Mission League football foes Bishop Amat and Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks on Friday night.
But no one told the Amat defense, as the Lancers forced two second half turnovers and scored 17 unanswered points to defeat the Knights 17-14 on the road.The winning 22-yard field goal came with five seconds left on the clock and off the foot of Shazel Sakr.

Duarte comes up short: Maranatha scored touchdowns after its defense forced turnovers on back-to-back plays, pacing the Minutemen to a 23-7 win over visiting Duarte in nonleague action.
With Maranatha (2-2-1) holding a 3-0 lead midway through the second quarter, a good punt backed up the Falcons to their own 7. On Duarte’s first snap, quarterback Devon Hemsley, in the grasp of a defender, tried to avoid a safety by heaving the ball away. But the ball went almost straight up and after Minutemen defensive end Sabien Rivera recovered in the end zone, the play was ruled a fumble recovery for a touchdown.
