Los Altos football falls short in Division 6 title game, 21-14; Did miss call change the game?

la6

Los Altos falls short: The atmosphere was certainly championship caliber, but the sloppiness of the play resembled something closer to Week 1.
Ultimately, in a game decided by mistakes and missed calls, the Los Altos High School football team saw its dream season come to an end in a 21-14 loss to visiting Paraclete in the CIF Southern Section Division 6 championship on Friday night.
“Five questionable fumbles all went to Paraclete, what are you going to do?” Los Altos head coach Dale Ziola said. “That was the whole game. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but I’m super proud of the kids. They worked so hard for so long.”

Changing point? It appeared Tyler Nevens was down at the 2 and Los Altos would have a chance to finish the late third-quarter drive and take a 14-7 lead, but officials ruled he fumbled the ball into the endzone and Paraclete recovered. That led to Paraclete taking a 14-7 lead and Los Altos having to rally to tie and eventually fall, 21-14.

Northview wrestling coach David Ochoa’s CIF-SS title rings stolen

rings
By Stephen Ramirez
The office of Northview High School wrestling coach David Ochoa was broken into Wednesday night.Ochoa, who has built the Vikings into one of the top programs in the state, said his 19 CIF Southern Section championship rings were taken, along with his laptop, some Chromebooks and a scale.Ochoa’s office is located in the wing of rooms off Homerest Avenue in Covina.
“I think, unfortunately, it was (some) students,” Ochoa said. “I guess it’s been happening. I didn’t realize that.
“I had some Chromebooks in the office, so they took those, my laptop, a very expensive scale I had in here, and my rings. I don’t think (the suspects) were in here all that long, but they took the stuff that was the most expensive, I guess.”
While the rings are a sentimental loss for Ochoa and symbolize what the program has accomplished in 20-plus seasons, the theft of his laptop is a more instant hit.
“I’ll be honest, those rings are not that important to me,” Ochoa said. “I was fortunate enough to be there when those kids won the championships and I know how hard they worked. I was there. That means more to me than any ring.
“But my laptop? It had everything. I’ve worked really hard to keep records of all our kids from year to year. It had just a lot of pictures of kids and different stuff they’ve done over the years. That can’t be replaced. You have stuff on your computer and when someone asks for something, you can get it to them. I’m not going to be able to do that anymore. That’s the hard part for me.”
The CIF-SS championship rings were in a display box. Four of them were made of gold, with the other 15 silver.
“At this point, I just want the rings (returned),” Northview principal Julie Harrison said. “It’s really sad this happened. My hope is by getting the word out that they’ll surface.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call Harrison at the school at 626-974-6121.

Two-Minute Drill Football Predictions for Los Altos, Arroyo and La Mirada championship games

Division 6: Paraclete (9-4) at Los Altos (13-0), Friday, 7 p.m.

Division 12: Rancho Mirage (11-2) at Arroyo (12-1), Saturday, 7 p.m.

Division 3: Edison (12-1) at La Mirada (11-2), Saturday, 7 p.m.

olmosProfile on Los Altos QB Kody Olmos: There was one question on everybody’s mind about the Los Altos High School football team entering the season.Nobody doubted the Conquerors had the line play, running back and defense to win a championship, but what about the quarterback? Kody Olmos answered those questions emphatically at what, thus far, has been the biggest moment of his team’s season.
Last week, with Los Altos needing to throw in order to get past Long Beach Wilson and advance to the CIF Southern Section Division 6 championship game, Olmos fired a 18-yard touchdown pass to Khayman King on the game’s final play to turn what looked like a 28-24 loss into a 30-28 win.

camachoProfile on Arroyo quarterback Ernesto Camacho: Ernesto Camacho knew he would play quarterback this season at Arroyo High School. It’s just that he never imagined it would be for the varsity team.Camacho, a sophomore, had mentally prepared himself to be the junior varsity team quarterback and wait his turn until next season for a shot to play under the lights.
Instead, Camacho has turned out to be a major reason why Arroyo hosts the CIF Southern Section Division 12 championship game against Rancho Mirage on Saturday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
“I’ve surprised myself, I didn’t think I’d succeed this much,” Camacho said. “I thought I was going to be on JV. I started working harder and I just took advantage of the opportunity.”
