How area tennis players did at CIF-SS individual regionals

San Marino, Arcadia and La Canada are the lone remaining representatives from the San Gabriel Valley after Monday’s CIF-SS tennis individual regional tournaments.

Bishop Amat, Glendora, Charter Oak and San Dimas advance to semifinals

SCOREBOARD: Follow the SGVN quarterfinal scoreboards for scoring updates throughout the night

Charter Oak routs Monrovia: When asked how many times he’s taken a team to the semifinals, Charter Oak High School football coach Lou Farrar was stumped. “Nine times? Twelve?” said Farrar, who has won five CIF championships. “I’ll have to look it up and text you.” Whatever the number, Farrar can add one to it after his Chargers posted a resounding 52-14 win over Monrovia in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Central Division playoffs.”

Sweet runs wild: Bishop Amat’s Torreahno Sweet and Oaks Christian quarterback Matt Corral and USC-bound receiver Michael Pittman put on a quite a show in the CIF-SS Pac-5 Division quarterfinals at Kiefer Stadium on Friday.
But when the dust settled, Sweet and Amat prevailed with a 61-40 victory to end Oaks Christian’s undefeated season and propel Amat back to the semifinals for a second straight year.

Glendora gets payback: Last season Colony defeated Glendora with a hobbled Matt Fink in the second round, scoring two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter to break a tied game, on their way to a CIF-SS Central Division championship. Glendora (11-1) earned an opportunity for redemption and made the most of it, defeating Colony 28-14 on Friday night. The Tartans will host their Mayor’s Trophy rival Charter Oak in the semifinals at Citrus College, The Chargers beat Glendora 28-7 in week 4.

Pomona in thriller over Northview: The Northview High School football team led for 47 minutes, 36 seconds of a 48-minute game Friday night, but a 5-yard run by Darreon Lockett gave Pomona its only lead in a 62-55 shootout, sending the reigning champion Red Devils back to the CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division semifinals.
The Vikings (10-2) led by as many as 21 points in the second quarter, but Pomona (11-2) scored three touchdowns on the next four drives to tie the game at 34. Northview scored three more touchdowns in the second half, but each one was answered quickly by a Pomona touchdown.

Viewpoint stuns Covina: Seth Frank kicked a 42-yard field goal with 17 seconds remaining to lift Viewpoint to an improbable 37-35 victory over Covina in the CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division quarterfinal at West Covina High.

San Dimas advances to semis: The Paraclete High School football team came up short against San Dimas in a thrilling 43-28 quarterfinal game in the CIF Southern Mid-Valley Division.The game was much closer than the score would suggest with Paraclete trailing by just six points behind with just over 2 minutes left.

Tribskin Pick’em: Taking Amat, Charter Oak, Northview, San Dimas to reach semifinals


San Dimas faces familiar foe: One of the most cringe-worthy road trips any Mid-Valley Division team can take is to Lancaster on a Friday night to take on Paraclete High School.
But perhaps the Mid-Valley team best equipped to deal with it is San Dimas, which has plenty of experience through the years against the Spirits in high-stakes games.
“It’s like a college road trip,” first-year San Dimas head coach Mark Holman said. “We’ll leave here Friday at noon, get up there at 2 and have a walk through. Have some dinner. We’ll try to make it like a normal home game.”

Bishop Amat drops 72 on Norco; Charter Oak, Northview, Glendora, San Dimas all win

High School Football live scoreboard updates

AMAT CRUSHES NORCO: If conventional wisdom holds true, the Bishop Amat High football team will need to defeat juggernauts St. John Bosco and Corona Centennial in consecutive weeks to win the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division championship.
Aided by a 43-point second-quarter outburst, the Lancers (9-2) took their first step toward that tall task Friday night at Kiefer Stadium with a 72-36 first-round victory over Norco.

Don Lugo knocks out Bonita: It had been long enough since the Don Lugo High School football team had won a playoff game, the coaching staff couldn’t dig up that last postseason victory in the records.
The Conquistadores are more worried about their future after a 28-19 victory over Bonita on Friday night in the first round of the CIF-SS Central Division playoffs.

San Marino eliminates Diamond Ranch: Diamond Ranch High School’s football team gave San Marino its best game of the season, and it still wasn’t nearly enough.
The Titans improved to 11-0 with a 35-21 victory over the visiting Panthers in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Central Division playoffs on Friday night. San Marino, the division’s No. 3 seed, will visit Don Lugo in next week’s second round. San Marino’s closest game before Friday’s result was 35 points.

Covina edges Arroyo: Covina may have needed an at-large bid to make the CIF Southern Section playoffs but the Colts took advantage of the opportunity and beat fifth-seeded Arroyo 35-28 in a Mid-Valley Division first-round game on Friday night. Covina (7-4) will host Viewpoint, another at-large team, Friday at 7 p.m.

Schurr 27, Baldwin Park 26
Quarterback Miguel Aguero scored in overtime on a 1-yard run and Eddie Delgado picked off a Jacob Robles pass on a two-point conversion attempt and Schurr High School rallied for a 27-26 CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division first-round victory on Friday night.
The Spartans (6-5) trailed the Montview League champions (7-4) 20-10 at the half. Aguero scored in the third quarter and Pedro Moreno kicked a field goal to send it into overtime. Schurr got the ball first in OT. On third-and-5 from the 20, Aguero got a key first down on a 5-yard pass to Anthony Varela. The Spartans marched the ball to the 1, where Aguero scored and Moreno kicked the extra point.
On the Braves’ first play of overtime, Robles was sacked. But on third-and-19, he hit Louis Flores on a 34-yard pass. Two plays later, Robles scored. The Braves lined up to kick the extra point to tie the game, but when the ball went through the goalposts it was waived off, the Braves calling time out before the snap.
Baldwin Park elected to go for the win and the Braves lined up all of their receivers on the right side. Robles was supposed to lob the ball up, but the pass was more of a beeline, right to Delgado.
The Braves led 14-0 when Carlos Varguez intercepted a Arguero pass and went 82 yards for a score. Flores rushed for 107 yards and a TD for the Braves.
— Rudy Ramos

Glendora 34, South Pasadena 0
Matt Fink did it again. The Tartans’ quarterback threw two touchdown passes and scored two touchdowns himself in the first round of the Central Division playoffs in a game played at Citrus College.
Fink threw for 62 yards, completing 4-of-9 passes and he and rushed for 50 yards on nine carries. Tight end Corey Taylor scored the first touchdown and cornerback Michael Lowe, Jr. scored the second before Fink scored his pair of touchdowns. Running back Anthony Montano led the fourth-seeded Tartans (10-1) in rushing yards with 114.
The Tartans play at Colony next week.
— Vincent Nguyen

San Dimas 49, Bassett 21 Charter Oak 49, Ayala 0
Zion Echols scored four touchdowns on 11 carries and ran for 149 yards before being pulled after one carry in the second half as the top-seeded Chargers rolled to a Central Division victory.
It was the Echols and Kam Brown Show in the first half. The two combined for four rushing touchdowns as the Chargers scored on four of their five first-half possessions, taking a commanding 28-0 lead at halftime.
Echols played only one play in the second half, which was a 54-yard touchdown scamper to extend the lead to 35-0.
The Chargers’ defense forced five turnovers and sacked Ayala’s quarterback five times. Charter Oak will be at home against Monrovia in the second round.
L.J. Velez

Northview 48, Rosemead 17
Quarterback Steven Comstock used a dominating performance to lead the Vikings in a Mid-Valley Division game at Covina District Field. Northview (10-1) played Rosemead (5-6) in the opening week of the season and Northview won, 37-24. This game was much more one-sided.
Comstock completed 13 of 21 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran the ball 11 times for 203 yards and three touchdowns. The Vikings will host third-seed Pomona next week.
