Thursday Countdown: Covina looking to rebound against Baldwin Park

Covina High played well in last week’s 42-28 loss to Northview, rallying in the fourth quarter to pull within seven points before the Vikings pulled away again for the victory.
The loss only dropped the Colts (5-2, 1-1) one spot to No. 4 in this week’s CIF Southern Section Division 11 rankings, and after beating San Dimas to open the Valle Vista League, they’re in a good spot to win their final three games to position themselves for a playoff seed.
Covina will face struggling Baldwin Park (3-4, 0-2) at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Covina District Field, a week after the Braves surprisingly lost to Wilson, 27-14.

In other Thursday games:

Arcadia (4-3, 3-1) at Glendale (2-5, 0-4), 7 p.m.
The Apaches, ranked third in Division 11, spanked Hoover 47-18 last week to remain in sole possession of third in the Pacific League.
The Apaches are one game back of Crescenta Valley (7-0, 4-0) and Burbank (5-2, 4-0), who square off on Friday for first place.
If Arcadia defeats Glendale, which hasn’t won a league game, it will be tied for second with the loser of the Crescenta Valley-Burbank game.
Burbank handed Arcadia its only loss in the Pacific, dealing the Apaches a 17-14 setback. The Apaches will face Crescenta Valley in the final week.

Marshall (1-6, 0-3) at Arroyo (8-0, 4-0), 7 p.m.
The Knights have been more impressive through eight games than they were a year ago when they won the Division 12 championship.
The Knights always have been able to score points, averaging 35 per game, but it’s their improved defense, which has allowed only eight points per game with three shutouts, that has been most impressive for Division 11’s second-ranked team.
Marshall lost last week to Mountain View 70-0, so this is a tough spot for the Eagles taking on the defending Mission Valley League champs.

Trinity Classical Academy (2-5, 0-0) vs. Pasadena Poly (5-1-1) at College of the Canyons, 7 p.m.
With only four teams in the Prep League, Pasadena Poly finally makes its league debut on the road in Santa Clarita against Trinity Classical Academy, which has just two wins, and one was a 36-0 victory over Rowland Heights’ Southlands Christian.
Poly has played well since its season-opening loss to Temple City, giving up a total of just 14 points combined in its last four wins.
