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.
