Thursday’s final scores
San Dimas 48, Northview 42
St. Francis 77, Harvard-Westlake 27
Whittier 11, Pioneer 10
San Dimas ends Northview’s streak: In one of the most exciting local high school games in recent years, it came down to the last five yards, and San Dimas, behind five rushing touchdowns from senior Dylan Ware, defeated Northview 48-42 in a Valle Vista League game Thursday night at Covina District Field.
With less than a minute remaining in the game, the Vikings drove the length of the field, highlighted by a 52-yard pass by senior quarterback Steven Comstock to to sophomore wide receiver Damion Thompson that put the ball at the Saints’ 25-yard line with 15 seconds remaining.
A couple of plays later, Comstock spiked the ball to stop the clock, but two running plays were stopped, and San Dimas ended an 18-game league winning streak by the Vikings (6-3, 3-1), who came into the game ranked No. 6 CIF-SS Division 8.
St. Francis flexes its muscles in win: All season long, the St. Francis High football team hasn’t been shy about lighting up the scoreboard. It only took seven plays Thursday night to confirm that.
In that stretch, Elijah Washington scored on the game’s second play and Darius Perrantes threw a touchdown pass then ran for another.
St. Francis kept its offense rolling, beating Harvard-Westlake 77-27 at home to set up a first-place Angelus League showdown with Cathedral next week.
The win also kept the Golden Knights (9-0, 4-0) in line for a second perfect regular season in four years, equaling what the 2014 team accomplished
Jose Estrada delivers for Whittier football in victory – Whittier High School’s Jose Estrada had never kicked a field goal coming into Thursday night’s Del Rio League game against Pioneer.
With Cardinals starting kicker Joshua Carranza not in uniform for the team’s home game against the Titans because of a recruiting trip, coach Visko Ancich had no other choice but to go with Estrada.Although the first-year football player had no prior experience going into the 20-yard attempt with 6:47 remaining in the game, Estrada got just enough on the kick to get the ball to split the uprights.
