Big night for South Hills, Glendora and San Marino

Friday night’s featured game stories
South Hills blocks field goal in final seconds to hang on to 27-24 win: After a first half where it felt everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, South Hills rallied from a 17-point deficit and senior running back Ryan Torres scored four touchdowns to lead the Huskies to a 27-24 victory over Glendora on Friday at Covina District Field.
Glendora had a chance to tie the score in the final seconds, setting up for a 45-yard field goal with the clock winding down, but Nicholas Lariviere blocked the kick and the Huskies (7-1, 3-0) remained undefeated in the Palomares League while avenging last year’s loss to the Tartans (5-3, 2-1).

Beau Hobbie, Blake Cabot lead San Marino football in rout: San Marino running back Beau Hobbie had a pretty quiet first half Friday against Temple City, with just 35 yards on six carries.
But Hobbie scored three rushing touchdowns in the second half and helped San Marino to a 49-19 win over Temple City in a Rio Hondo League game.
Hobbie finished with 17 carries for 118 yards as San Marino (6-1, 2-0) made it six straight wins with another big offensive showing.

La Serna keeps on rolling: After a loss to Santa Fe High School to start the Del Rio League schedule two weeks ago, the La Serna football team is clicking on all cylinders with two consecutive wins, including Friday night’s 42-7 victory over Whittier at California High School.
Senior running back Alfonso Ibanez was one big reason for the scoring frenzy for the Lancers (4-4, 2-1) as he ran for a career-best 174 yards on 17 carries with four touchdowns.

Bishop Amat remains perfect in Mission League: Bishop Amat held off a late Serra rally for a 21-14 victory Friday night to stay undefeated in Mission League play.
Seth Cloud intercepted Doug Brumfield’s pass at the Lancers’ 24-yard line to stop Serra’s potential game-tying drive and secure the win with under two minutes remaining.
With a win next week at home against Alemany, the Lancers (4-4, 4-0) will have the opportunity to play for the league championship in week 10 at Chaminade.

Late interception seals win for Santa Fe football: The El Rancho High football team wanted its quarterback, Jacob Rodriguez, to roll out on a first-down play at visiting Santa Fe’s 23-yard line with 47 seconds remaining in Friday’s game.
El Rancho coach Adrian Medrano called the play because of the senior’s ability to make plays with his feet.But the play backfired as Santa Fe safety Sergio Medrano intercepted a pass by Rodriguez, sealing a 30-27 victory for the Chiefs in a Del Rio League game.

    RJ Stearns has 9 rushing Touchdowns.

    Serra big receivers will be a problem for Amats small Corners . like Amats chances better against Chaminade than Serra .

  • The stands

    For Amat, it’s all about a sustained run game. The O line keeps getting better and better. Aaron Maldonado had, arguably, his best game as a Lancer with 4 sacks. This was a great win against a quality team and in the road, no less. Fred, Oh ye of little faith.

    Amat legend, John Jackson, sent his kid to the wrong school. He was announcing the game on Fox Sports West too! Serves him right. In front of entire Southern California high school football world on live television, Bishop Amat defeated Serra 21 to 14. Great victory for the 2017 Lancers. Mighty are the Men that Wear the Blue and Gold, John. Or did you forget?

    • Valley Athletics

      He lives in Redondo beach . Way to far to consider Amat .

    Last nights game,between LA and Chino had third season implications seeing as it was ostensibly for the third and,likely last playoff position out of the Hacienda…..nary a mention…

    All I can say is what a game last night. Glendora gave it their best shot but the huskies dug down deep and came out with the Win and are in prime position for the league title. The Defense looked real good and physical and held the Glendora QB in check the whole game. Now I’m not sure of Stearns is suffering from injury but he did not look himself. Good thing for the huskies is they have a great O-Line and Torres at RB who punishes people with his style of play. 4 TDS vs the Glendora defense is very impressive.

    Fred, you have to understand Amat played 4 schools with a combined record 28 – 1 at the time and you still doubt there rankings in the fish bowl. You still went against Amat the ONLY school in Div.1. Yes, not the greastest start considering they played the top rank teams in the country and state but after going 0-4 but none of the fish bowl teams would of even scored against those schools and yet you count them out, you said the same for Loyola, and now Serra. Give some Love and respect Fredito. I wish we could of played Charter Oak to prove all doubters…whose really number one in SGV. Also, those that were there at the Amat game felt the refes where trying to give the game to Serra. I mean, there calls didnt fit the penalty and most calls where wrong or against Amat. They gave Serra a lot of oportunities to get closer to Amat territory. Amat had to earn there hard work touchdowns. First and Second half penalties were all on Amat. Also, John Jackson Jr penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct or personal fouls showed me a lot about his son. Jackson Sr, your sonny didnt meet all the talked about hype. Sorry, just saying. Another thing, Serra only has two State Championships in smaller divisions 2009 and 2012, Not in 1989. 89″ was a CIF Championship different from a State Champion as there score board reads State Champions 1989, 2009, and 2012. El correcto…
