TRIBUNE SUPER 33 FOOTBALL RANKINGS
1. Bishop Amat (0-1)
— Put up a good fight against Mater Dei in a 21-17 loss. Let’s see how they rebound at home against Servite.
2. Charter Oak (1-0) — One of the most impressive wins of the weekend the way it manhandled the Nevada school.
3. Glendora (0-0) – All eyes will be on USC-bound quarterback Matt Fink in his senior debut at home against Alta Loma.
4. Northview (1-0) — Vikings with a 37-24 win over Rosemead and gets a bigger text this week at Montebello.

Tribskin Pick’em: South Hills, Glendora and West Covina with big games

Records
Aram Tolegian Last week: 32-10; Season: 32-10
Fred Robledo Last week: 33-9; Season: 33-9
Last week: Aram and I missed a lot of the same games, but overall I got him by one. He picked Mater Dei over Bishop Amat and Bassett over over Mountain View to pick up a couple, but I picked up some ground taking South Hills over Diamond Ranch, Colony over West Covina and can’t believe I picked up another game taking Santa Clarita Christian over Blair, who won 56-0. Yes, Aram took Blair. We’ll see what happens this week.

Friday Night Final: Mater Dei spoils Bishop Amat’s debut, 24-21; Charter Oak, Los Altos, Northview win

Bishop Amat-Mater Dei photo gallery
MaterDeo

Mater Dei edges Amat : The anticipation and heightened expectations for this Bishop Amat football season started very shortly after the Lancers’ two-point conversion attempt came up inches short in the final moments of the 2014 CIF-SS Pac-5 Division semifinal against Corona Centennial, preventing the Lancers from reaching the division final for the first time since 1995, the last time they won a championship.
El Monte no match for Montebello: There was just no stopping Montebello High School football team all-purpose threat Isaac Mendibles on Friday night.The senior returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and had rushing and receiving scores to lead visiting Montebello to a 44-30 win over El Monte.
West Covina falls to Colony: Defending CIF Southern Section Central Division champion Colony, ranked first in the division’s preseason poll, took advantage of five West Covina turnovers and an 85-yard drive late in the game to pull out a 28-21 come-from-behind win over the fifth-ranked Bulldogs in Friday’s season opener for both teams.
Northview wins big: Northview High came out firing on all cylinders offensively in its football season opener Friday night. The Vikings needed every score to withstand a valiant comeback by Rosemead.In the end, Northview’s vaunted rushing attack was too much for the host Panthers as the Vikings came away with a 37-24 victory in the non-league game.
Zion Echols leads Charter Oak: With the temperature in triple figures for most of the game, it would have been easy for Charter Oak to melt away in the Nevada heat.Zion Echols made sure that did not happenThe senior returned the opening kickoff for an 89-yard touchdown in his first of five visits to the end zone in the Chargers’ 42-21 road victory over Green Valley.

Friday’s results
Mater Dei 24, Bishop Amat 21 — It was there for the taking but four turnovers, including a biggie late spoils Amat’s hyped preseason. Another question is should they continue platooning quarterbacks?
Sierra Vista 29, La Puente 16 — Changing of the guard for both teams
Los Altos 33, Baldwin Park 14 — Conqs jumped out to big lead and held on
Charter Oak 42, Green Valley 21 — Zion Echols best player of the night with four TDs
Northview 37, Rosemead 24 — Vikings raced to an early lead, Panthers made it respectable
San Marino 49, Arroyo 10 — Simply too strong and physical for the Knights
Bonita 49, Schurr 2 — Can’t find right words to explain how impressive this is.
Chino Hills 31, Ayala 0 — Easy opener for the Baseline contenders
Pasadena 20, South El Monte 0 — Good sign for the Bulldogs, not so much for Eagles
South Hills 7, Diamond Ranch 0 – Defense wins games when your offense scores once.
Colony 28, West Covina 21 — Went back and forth with Colony finally pulling it out.
Don Lugo 34, Walnut 0 — How far has Walnut fallen?
Diamond Bar 44, Duarte 13 — Brahmas dominate, but not too surprising
Montebello 44, El Monte 30 — Lions’ defense continues to make it tough to win.
Bassett 43, Mountain View 14 — Olympians show hype was no joke
Oaks Hills 31, Pomona 13 — Defending Mid-Valley champs rocked in opener
Alta Loma 23, Rowland 13 — Thought it was going to be worse for Raiders

Jurupa Hills spoils Gladstone’s football opener, 32-15

stone
Gladstone comes up short in opener: If Jurupa Hills senior quarterback Julian Curiel was looking to make friends in the 2015 season opener on Thursday night, it didn’t take him long.
Curiel completed passes to seven different receivers and 235 yards in the first half alone, and Jurupa Hills went on to beat Covina Gladstone 32-15 on Thursday night at Citrus College.
Curiel finished with 392 yards and three touchdowns passing in the game. While he spread the ball around early, it became clear who his top target is: Tre’veon Wellmaker, who caught 11 passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns, while running for another score.
