Tribune Super 32 Football Rankings: No. 1 Los Altos at No. 2 Charter Oak on Friday

Tribune Super 32 Football Rankings
1. Los Altos (8-0) – Will get a chance to prove it’s No. 1 in the mother of all game on Friday at No. 2 Charter Oak.
2. Charter Oak (8-0) — Chargers have answered the challenge all season and have the biggest one next vs. No. 1 Los Altos at home.
3. Bishop Amat (6-3) – In all likelihood Lancers punched tickets to the playoffs with win over Alemany, but can improve positioning with win over Chaminade in finale.
4. Northview (7-1) – Won the thriller over San Dimas by wearing the Saints’ down in the second half with 28 straight unanswered points.
5. Damien (6-2) – If Damien can finish up 7-3 it should get a Division 4 playoff berth and be dangerous.
6. San Dimas (7-1) – Don’t worry, Saints will pick themselves off the floor and be a factor in the playoffs.
7. Arroyo (8-1) – Had a closer than expected victory over Marshall, but all signs point to long playoff run.
8. West Covina (5-3) – Bulldogs a clear third in Hacienda behind undefeated Charter Oak and Los Altos.
9. Glendora (4-4) – Undefeated at 3-0 in the Palomares with a chance for a championship Friday against Ayala.
10. Nogales (7-1 ) – Can still clinch a piece of the Montview League title with a victory over Duarte. But won’t be easy at all.

Northview is the real deal in win over undefeated San Dimas; Charter Oak, Los Altos set up next week’s showdown

nviewNorthview’s big second half beats San Dimas: The road to the Valle Vista League football title once again runs through Northview High School.
Steven Comstock accounted for 385 yards and five touchdowns and the Vikings’ defense shutdown San Dimas in the second half to secure a 49-34 victory over the host Saints on Friday.

Los Altos ready for Charter Oak: Moments after Los Altos secured its 39-7 victory over Chino and found out that Charter Oak won as well to set up next week’s battle of unbeatens and likely for the Hacienda League title, Los Altos coach Dale Ziola could not contain his excitement between two 8-0 teams that are also 3-0 in league.
“Sweet,” exclaimed the visibly pumped coach. “It’s what it’s all about It’s just like the good old days. That’s awesome, It’s going to be a great week and it’s going to be a good game. We got a lot of respect for Charter Oak. It’s 1-1 (between) us the last two years since they recreated the Hacienda League, so it should be fun.”

Duarte looking good in Montview: First-place Duarte scored on its first play from scrimmage and never trailed in 49-10 win over Sierra Vista in a Montview League game on Friday night.
The win gives the Falcons (6-2, 3-0) a one-game lead over Nogales and Azusa with two games to play. The Falcons will visit Nogales next week in a game that will decide the order for the Montview League playoff spots.

Charter Oak not happy with sloppy win: In Hacienda League play, a solid defensive performance by Charter Oak helps it stay undefeated with a 20-6 win after a sloppy game at Diamond Ranch on Friday night.
The Panthers (3-5, 0-3) struggled for the second straight week to put up points before the fourth quarter. With 5:30 left in the game, Trey Green got in the end zone by hurdling a Chargers defender at the 2-yard line after a 25-yard pass from Justin Tong to cut the lead to eight.

GLENDORA — Bonita High School has shown the ability the past few seasons that when it’s backed into a corner, it can attack like a cat and live for another day.
This time, the Bearcats just got mauled.
James Nolan rushed for 219 yards and three touchdowns and Bryce Wooldridge accounted for 273 yards and four scores as Glendora stayed perfect in the chase for the Palomares League football title with a 56-20 victory over Bonita at Citrus College.

Wooldridge threw for 199 yards for the Tartans (4-4, 3-0). Dylan Flores had 87 yards receiving and a touchdown for Bonita (3-5, 0-3). The Bearcats’ playoff hopes have gone from slim to almost nil.
Glendora plays at Ayala next week. The Bulldogs (3-4, 2-0) have a home game against Claremont on Friday.
Glendora started fast and finished the first half strong to lead, 35-20, after two quarters.
James Nolan rushed for 125 yards and two touchdowns during the first half as the Tartans scored on five of their eight possessions to start the game. Glendora gained 320 yards during the first two quarters.
Glendora’s James Nolan: It’s just another win for us. We just have to keep battling, winning games and hopefully winning league.”
Bonita coach Ibis Aguilar: “We showed fight tonight. We got down 21 points in the first quarter. We fought back, had a great effort, had execution and had everything going in our direction. We just weren’t able to sustain it.”
— Stephen Ramirez
LA PUENTE — Nogales High School dominated the lines of scrimmage and cruised to a 58-0 win over Workman in a game played at La Puente High on Thursday night.
The Nobles (7-1, 2-1) took over sole possession of second place in the Montview League football standings, half game behind first-place Duarte.
Quarterback Matt Olguin led the Nobles offense, completing 14 of 16 passes for 197 yards and five touchdowns, all in the first half.
Olguin threw three touchdown passes to James Gray and a pair to Larenzo Williams. Andrew Carrazco ran for another TD in the first half.
Williams intercepted a pass in the second half and returned it 60 yards for a score. It was his third interception of the season.
The Nobles offensive line of Chris Espinoza, Christian Flores, Leo Gonzalez and brothers Jonathon and Juan Guardado gave Olguin time to throw and opened holes for Gray and Carrazco to pile up 297 yards of offense in the first half while holding the Lobos (3-5, 1-2) to just 40 yards of offense.
Nogales coach Richard Salazar: “We just focused on making our blocks on offense. Williams and Gray are our top guys and are making the plays we expect of them.”
Nogales’ Matt Olguin: “Our offensive line did most of the work. They allowed us to open up our offense. All my love goes to my offensive line. Without them all these scores wouldn’t be possible.”
Nogales’ Larenzo Williams: “Matt took his time and threw the ball perfectly. On that pick I just wanted to help the defense. I could read the guards and tackles and knew it was a pass and it came to my side.”
