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.
9. Nogales (3-0) – No reason the Nobles shouldn’t continue its winning way with a road game at Walnut.
10. Glendora (1-2) – Back-to-back losses to Damien and Charter Oak and doesn’t get any easier at Los Altos next.
The Rest: 11. Bonita (2-1), 12. South El Monte (3-0), 13. West Covina (1-2), 14. Arroyo (2-1), 15. Diamond Bar (2-1), 16. Baldwin Park (2-1), 17. Duarte (2-0), 18. Sierra Vista (2-0), 19. Mountain View (2-1), 20. Ganesha (2-1), 21. South Hills (1-2), 22. Covina (1-2), 23. El Monte (1-2), 24. Pomona (0-3), 25. Azusa (1-1), 26. La Puente (1-2), 27. Rosemead (0-3), 28. Wilson (0-3), 29.

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, 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, 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.

Bishop Amat pulls out clutch 35-28 win; Charter Oak and Damien roll; Los Altos, Northview win big too


Bishop Amat hangs on: Two weeks after Bishop Amat’s embarrassing loss to nationally ranked Mater Dei, and while Mater Dei continues to embarrass everyone else in its path, Bishop Amat showed for a second straight game it’s not all that bad, and probably better than anyone thought.
Bishop Amat raced to a three touchdown lead and surrendered it, but had the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter to beat JSerra, ranked sixth in CIF Southern Section Division 1, 35-28, and hand the Lions (2-1) their first loss.
If Bishop Amat’s 14-10 victory over Servite last week was a surprise after its season-opening 63-14 loss to Mater Dei, then Friday’s win over JSerra was further proof the young Lancers are a viable threat when the Mission League starts in a couple weeks.

Charter Oak routs Glendora: This was the third game of the season for Charter Oak and the third game it has scored over 40 points. The Chargers overwhelmed Glendora 43-0 at Citrus College on Friday.
It might be time to take them very seriously as one of the top teams in the San Gabriel Valley.Charter Oak (3-0) outplayed Glendora (1-2) on offense, defense and special teams. The Chargers had 522 yards of total offense, while thedefense held the Tartans to 52 total yards.

Damien keeps on rolling: It’s been a long time since Damien football has cracked relevancy in the San Gabriel Valley. The last time the Spartans made the playoffs was 2011, under then head coach Greg Gano.
Those days seem to be over.
Head coach Mark Paredes has the Spartans rolling through its first three games led by junior quarterback Warren Bryan who was impressive once again, completing 17 of 24 passes for 430 yards, four passing touchdowns, and a rushing score, as Damien cruised to a 38-7 victory of visiting Claremont on Friday.

Northview routs Santa Fe: Northview High School, after opening the season with a loss to CIF Southern Section Division 4 No. 1 Charter Oak, has been on a major roll.
The Vikings continued it Friday, steamrolling host Santa Fe, 44-6, in a nonleague game at Pioneer High School.
“Losing to Charter Oak definitely motivated us, but having (running back) Kevin (Thomas) back has changed our offense a lot,” junior quarterback Steven Comstock said.

Bonita beats unbeaten South Pasadena: The Bonita High School football might be starting to get the hang of this winning thing.
Youthful at several key spots, the Bearcats figured to experience some growing pains. And although Friday’s performance wasn’t perfect, it was good enough to result in a 49-28 win and hand host South Pasadena its first loss of the season.

Friday’s results
Bishop Amat 35, JSerra 28
Charter Oak 43, Glendora 0
Northview 44, Santa Fe 6
