VIDEO: St. Paul will forfeit Friday’s game to Bishop Amat after multiple players suspended

St. Paul Forfeits: St. Paul High School’s football team will forfeit last week’s game at Notre Dame of Riverside and this week’s game against Bishop Amat due to last week’s brawl between St. Paul and Notre Dame, which resulted in the game being halted early with St. Paul leading 17-0.
The Southern Section released a statement on Monday saying that there were multiple violations of the CIF bylaw that prohibits players from leaving their team’s bench area to join in a fight. Because St. Paul had so many players facing suspension this week due to those violations, it was determined the Swordsmen couldn’t field a team in order to play Amat.

CIF handed down its ruling today, forcing St. Paul to forfeit last week’s game it was winning, and this Friday’s game to Bishop Amat

Tribune Super 32 Rankings: Charter Oak, Bishop Amat top poll; Los Altos, Damien remain undefeated

1. Charter Oak (3-0) — Chargers have had many good teams, but this might be the most impressive three game start of all. Not just the routs, but who, Northview, Colony and Glendora. Impressive.
2. Bishop Amat (2-1) – Super impressive back-to-back wins over Trinity’s Servite and JSerra. Will likely thump St. Paul Friday to make it three straight.
3. Los Altos (3-0) – Might impressive win on the road at Corona to remain undefeated. Mark Week 8 on your calendar when it meets Charter Oak. Both might be undefeated.
4. Damien (3-0) – Spartans crushed Claremont and has its sights set on taking down No. 1 Charter Oak at their house on Friday. Easy game of the week.
5. San Dimas (3-0) – Another easy win over Ontario with Diamond Bar following. Saints running the ball and playing great defense.
6. Northview (2-1) – Vikings what we expected and gets a great test at Don Lugo, coached by a former Vikings coach, Greg Gano.
7. Diamond Ranch (2-1) – Panthers are third team along with Charter Oak and Los Altos that make the Hacienda tough.
8. Rowland (3-0) – Undefeated against easy opponents but that changes with a trip to Arroyo on Friday.

Video: Mt. San Antonio College football player arrested after punching a referee

A Mt. San Antonio College football player was arrested after allegedly punching a referee during a football game against Ventura College on Saturday night, the Ventura County Star reported while also posting updates on its twitter feed.
The Ventura County Star tweeted video of the punch, and announcers broadcasting the game for socalcollegesports.com, couldn’t believe what they witnessed.
“The ref just got punched in the face by a player,” the broadcaster said. “What? I’ve never seen anything like that before in my life.”
The Ventura County Star reported that Mt. SAC offensive lineman Bernard Schirmer was arrested following the game and taken to jail.
Mt. San Antonio college’s football Twitter posted Sunday morning that the punch was unintentional and the referee decided not to press charges. “For those of you unable to attend the game last night, the athlete involved did not intentionally attack the referee,” it read. “The referee was accidentally struck during the scrum while pulling the players off. The referee has decided not to press charges knowing Bernard Schirmer did not intend to hit him.”
Even if Schirmer doesn’t face charges, he could possibly face a significant ban for throwing a punch that intentionally or not, knocked a referee to the ground.
The two schools finished the game, with Ventura defeating Mt. SAC, ranked No. 1 in the country by JC.com, 34-29.

What the Mt. SAC football Twitter Account posted, then quickly removed.

West Covina owns Cameron again, routs South Hills, 35-8


West Covina 3-peats South Hills: Anthony Ramiro might be short in stature, but he sure stood big in the battle of the Kings of Cameron on Saturday night at Covina District Field.
The West Covina High School senior is 5-foot-5 and 145 pounds. But the wide receiver and slotback sure wiggled around and ran over South Hills giants. He ran over a would-be tackler for a touchdown and came up big on sweeps out of the slotback position to get the Bulldogs their first win of the season, a 35-8 victory over host South Hills.
West Covina took claim to the King of Cameron Avenue trophy, presented by the West Covina City Council, after the game. It was the Bulldogs’ third consecutive victory against their down-the-street neighbors.
