    Amat ranked #6???

    Wow….Fred dropping the hammer down.

    I still think Amat gets into the playoffs.

  • Conq ’76

    LA has got to play smarter if they want to defeat the likes of Glendora, New Port Harbor etc. Unforced errors allowed St. Paul great field position and poor special teams play gave the Swordsmen 14 points. Glendora will likely prevail if LA can’t push the “discipline button: when needed.

  • reality

    Amat #1. Beats CO and the other posers by 4 TD’s. Major League vs Little League.

    • TruTH

      I think Amat has more worries than being number 1 in the SGV. Like win a game maybe. Or how about not lose to a former division 2 team. The rest of the SGV might be little league but Amat is definitely not major league, more like minor league. Plus according to Cal Preps, Amat is only a six point favorite to CO.

      • scotty bore as

        yes, Amat has bigger concerns than being #1 in the less than mediocre fish bowl….but, you proved my point, by quoting Max Preps prediction about Amat being a 6 point favorite over CO….really pops the bubble over the paper tiger Chargers, undefeated and atop the fish wraps poll ! yet, a touchdown dog to a team without a win…..

        • Conq ’76

          this debate is ongoing and never ending, and monotonous and tedious and boring and irrelevant and useless and inconsequential and did I say boring? oh yeah I did! lol

        • reality

          When you are 0-3 and getting beaten up its great to be #1 anywhere. At the least the SGVN should have real rankings not fake news.

  • John from HH

    Freddy if you think LA is the 4th best team in the area, you are crazy! It just goes to show you haven’t watched them play. They are 3-0 right now. Mark my words, they will go 4-6 on the season. They will beat Walnut and lose all other games. My prediction for this week: Glendora – 42, LA 13

    • Conq ’76

      ? Iv’e watched them play, what was your prediction prior to the St. Paul game? I’ve watched LA team’s for four decades and I don’t see anything from this team that would make me think they would lost to this years WC team, Diamond Ranch or Chino….but who knows?

      • John from HH

        You might be right…I haven’t seen any of those teams play. Here’s what I see from LA that has me worried.
        1) Three wins vs. weak teams. San Marino was terrible and St. Paul was no where near what I expected. No need to even mention the third win.
        2) They are one-dimensional. Athletic teams will cancel out Olmos and they can’t run the ball well enough to win games.
        3) Undisciplined. Reminds me of the old Roddy coached D-Ranch teams. Difference is those teams had the talent to overcome their lack of discipline. So far I’ve seen Hundreds of yards in stupid penalties. TDs getting called back. Killer late-hit penalties, multiple holding calls, taunting, and more! Unless Spathias cleans this up, LA loses tight games because they make stupid plays.
        4) Weak line. Line play is what made LA formidable the past few years. This year’s bunch looks average at best. And no more Nevens to break tackles after missed assignments.

        I could be wrong. Maybe they’ll surprise me. Maybe other teams in the Hacienda are down as well. But I just don’t see it.

        • Conq ’76

          I’m with you on the discipline, unforced, stupid errors, and I have said the same thing, in a tight game, it could cost them big-time. I was actually pleasantly surprised that the line was playing as well as it is, giving Olmos time when he needs it.

          I was just hoping they would be competitive this year and thus far, they have.

          • John from HH

            I agree that they’ve looked decent in pass protection, albeit vs. sub-par competition. It’s more the aggressive run blocking that I question.

          • Conq ’76

            looks like this year they are going to have to rely on the passing game more so than in recent years.
