Tribune Super 32 Football Rankings: Los Altos No. 1, Bishop Amat moves to No. 2

Tribune Super 32 Football Rankings
1. Los Altos (6-0) – Still best of the rest after a convincing victory over Diamond Ranch and now the favorite to win the Division 6 title.
2. Bishop Amat (5-2) – Back to back wins over the Division 2 teams in the Mission, but next three won’t be as easy.
3. Charter Oak (6-0) — West Covina gave the undefeated Chargers all they could handle, but Chargers found a way to win again.
4. San Dimas (6-0) – There’s no stopping the Saints train at the moment and probably no team other than Northview has a realistic shot in the Valle Vista.
5. Damien (5-1) – Beating Chino Hills could go a long way to securing a Division playoff berth.
6. Northview (5-1) – Vikings routed rival Covina and should rout everyone else until the big one with San Dimas.
7. Arroyo (6-1) – Might as well pencil in 9-1, there is no way the Knights are losing to anyone in the Mission Valley.
8. West Covina (3-3) – Bulldogs might be .500, but among the teams ranked here, eighth best is fair.
9. South Hills – (3-3) – October Huskies much better than September Huskies.
10. Diamond Ranch (3-3) – Didn’t expect it to beat Los Altos and considering schedule, .500 record is pretty good.
The Rest: 11. South El Monte (5-1), 12. Nogales (5-1), 13. Glendora (2-4), 14. Bonita (3-3), 15. Baldwin Park (4-2), 16. Sierra Vista (5-1), 17. Covina (3-3), 18. Duarte (4-2), 19. Azusa (3-3), 20. Rowland (3-2), 21. Mountain View (2-5), 22. El Monte (4-3), 23. La Puente (4-2), 24. Diamond Bar (2-4), 25. Ganesha (3-4), 26. Workman (2-4), 27. Pomona (1-6), 28. Rosemead (2-5), 29. Wilson (0-5), 30. Walnut (0-6), 31. Bassett (0-7), 32. Gladstone (0-6).

Charter Oak hangs on, beats West Covina; Azusa shocks undefeated Nogales


Charter Oak holds on, remains undefeated: Charter Oak stayed undefeated because of a huge performance from a player that didn’t think he would be able to play, what turned out to be the winning touchdown on a rugby-style play, and a defensive stop with 2:21 left in the game to clinch a 27-24 win over West Covina in the Hacienda League opener for both teams.
The Chargers’ defense, led by linebacker Dillon Ontiveros, stopped the Bulldogs fourth-and-1 from the 12-yard line to sew up the win.
“I considered going for the field goal,” Bulldogs coach Mike Maggiore said. “But we had the momentum and wanted to go in and win the game. But they made a big play and we didn’t.”

Damien beats Chino Hills: The first couple weeks of league play really set the tone for high school football. Come out hot, and you are in prime position to make the postseason. Come out sluggish, and you have to make your way back into contention. The Baseline League, other than preseason favorite Rancho Cucamonga, is wide open.
So teams like Upland, Chino Hills, Damien, Etiwanda and Los Osos need to get in the win column early. Damien started slowly, but proved Friday night it was in for the long haul. Warren Bryan continued his stellar junior season, completing 18 of his 25 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns, and the Spartans (5-1, 1-0) cruised to a 27-12 victory over host Chino Hills.

Northview steps on the gas: The Northview High football team opened Valley Vista League play with an impressive display on offense and defense in a 49-7 victory over Covina at Covina District Field on Friday night.
Northview (5-1, 1-0) was led by its offensive leader, quarterback Steven Comstock. The junior was 16 for 25 for 222 yards and four touchdowns with one interception. He also rushed 11 times for 110 yards and one touchdown.

Glendora routs Diamond Bar: Glendora sprinted out of the gate in its Palomares league opener Friday night and beat host Diamond Bar 42-8. The Tartans (2-4, 1-0) were led by lighting-fast quarterback Bryce Wooldridge. In the first half, he had two rushing touchdowns of over 40 yards. On both, he pulled down the read-option and beat everyone to the sideline — once for 45 yards and once for 42.

Azusa stuns undefeated Nogales: Nogales High School had a rude awakening to Montview League football on Friday night.The Nobles, after playing in the Valle Vista League for the last few seasons, were off to their best nonleague start in more than 20 years.
But Azusa (3-3) sent Nogales (5-1) back to reality in the league opener for both teams with a 21-7 victory.
Gabriel Whitworth ran for two touchdowns and took advantage of Nogales turnovers for the stunning victory.

Friday’s results

Charter Oak 27, West Covina 24 – Chargers’ fourth quarter goal-line stand pulls it out.
