Bishop Amat falls on last second 49-yard field goal; Charter Oak survives South Hills scare


Bishop Amat can’t close, lose on 49-yard FG with no time left: Bishop Amat fell apart in the final minute and Loyola made it pay with a dramatic 49-yard field goal from Diego Cacho-Sousa as time expired to lift the Cubs to an improbable 24-23 victory in Friday’s Mission League opener.
Bishop Amat led 23-14 with just over a minute to play and was driving deep in Cubs territory when it fumbled the ball.
Loyola, led by quarterback Sean O’Malley, who finished with 266 yards passing and two TDs, quickly moved the Cubs down the field, tossing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jack Webster with 17 seconds left, cutting the Lancers’ lead to 23-21.
Bishop Amat couldn’t handle the ensuing onside kick, with Loyola’s Alex Johnson recovering it. After a short pass out of bounds, the Cubs lined up for a 49-yard field goal with 5 seconds left, and Cacho-Sousa delivered with a long line-drive that dipped over the crossbar.

San Dimas routs fourth straight team: The San Dimas football team scored on its first three drives of the game and its defense quickly established control of the game in a 49-0 rout of visiting Diamond Bar in a nonleague game Friday night.
San Dimas (4-0), which has scored 40 points or more in every game this year, scored on its first drive of the game.
Noah Maldonado took the handoff from the 2-yard line and scored to make it 7-0 with 9:56 left in the first quarter.

Bonita gets surprising win over Diamond Ranch: Bonita’s 21 points in the first 3 minutes of the second half powered the Bearcats to a 39-14 nonleague victory against Diamond Ranch Friday night. Offense and defense contributed to the three scores that completely deflated the Panthers, who didn’t score in the second half.
The momentum shift happened at the end of the first half when the Panthers were looking to add to their 14-8 lead. The Bearcats’ Randy Fertig blocked the Panthers 21-yard field goal attempt with 22 seconds left, and Bonita quarterback John Andrade followed with three completions of 17, 18 and 25 yards that set up a made 34-yard field goal for Deane Garrett.

Undefeated Duarte no match for Whittier Christian: How good is Whittier Christian quarterback Quinn Commans?Very good, but so are the Heralds, who showed it at Duarte High School on Friday.
Commans, who equaled a CIF Southern Section single-game record with nine touchdown passes last week, accounted for 398 yards and four scores to lead Whittier Christian to a 55-20 victory over the host Falcons in a nonleague game.

Friday’s results
Mission League

Loyola 24, Bishop Amat 23 — With a sure victory tucked away, Lancers inexplicably blow a 23-14 lead in final 17 seconds, losing on last second 49-yard FG.
Mission Valley League
South El Monte 56, Gabrielino 14 — The dominance continues for the Eagles, who look like the read deal in Division 13. Bring on Arroyo.
El Monte 34, Mountain View 6 – Lions look like the third-best team in the MVL.
Arroyo 16, Rosemead 0 – The Knights didn’t miss their benched starters in last week’s win, but they did this week, gutting out tough win over the Panthers.
Brethren Christian 69, Azusa 7 — Not a great scheduling job for Azusa, especially in a down year.
San Dimas 49, Diamond Bar 0 — Saints have have won a few titles, but don’t remember any season this dominant through four wins.
Bonita 39, Diamond Ranch 14 — Bonita most impossible team to figure out. No way I thought they could beat Diamond Ranch.
La Puente 19, Gladstone 10 — Perfectly matched teams with Warriors pulling out a close one.
West Covina 30, Glendora 13 — This was the truth game for both teams and while that hurts for Glendora, West Covina must be feeling like it can contend in the Hacienda.
Los Altos 35, Newport Harbor 23 — Going to seriously have to consider leaping the Conquerors to number one after tonight.
Damien 40, Monrovia 0 — That’s how you get the sting from a tough loss to Charter Oak out of your system.
Northview 35, Pomona 0 — Offense is rolling heading into next week’s Valle Vista opener with rival Covina.
Sierra Vista 34, Bassett 28 — Dons much better than anyone tough.
Charter Oak 35, South Hills 21 — Wholly molly, the Huskies actually led 21-14 in the second half. Would have been the biggest upset in a long time.
Whittier Christian 55, Duarte 20 — Undefeated Duarte exposed, but they’ll still be a contender in the Montview.
Workman 16, Bosco Tech 0 — These are the types of games the Lobos need to schedule more often.
South East 40, Baldwin Park 26 — Braves knew they were in tough against a solid team from the City Section
