Friday night’s results:
La Habra 62, Sonora 0
Yes, Fullerton rolled over Buena Park (50-7), but it it still doesn’t
look good for the Indians and the rest of the Freeway League because
the Highlanders are on a roll.
Santa Fe 19, Whittier 6
Turner returns opening kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown, and although
point differential isn’t what many expected, it was a game the Chiefs
were supposed to win.
La Serna 67, Pioneer 27
Lozano, Burke sharp and Lancers continue to impress, but beating up
personnel-depleted Titans doesn’t earn a lot of ranking points.
California 45, El Rancho 13
Aggressive Condors defense wouldn’t let El Rancho’s offense get loose,
even with Aldecoa back to help Galan, and the near future doesn’t appear
bright for the Dons.
Schurr 38, Alhambra 24
Spartans rise to the occasion – again – and add more misery to the
Moors’ already deteriorating hopes for what was expected to be a
championship Almont League season.
Loyola 42, St. Paul 21
One more week to go (Sherman Oaks Notre Dame) for the Swordsmen, and
then they get off this fast track to begin Mission League play, though,
that’s not going to provide much relief.
Bell Gardens 45, Montebello 20
Oilers put their two-game win streak on the line, then couldn’t stop the
Lancers’ ground game (316 yards) nor keep them out of the end
zone (seven possessions, six TDs).
Cathedral 42, Cantwell Sacred Heart 0
The visiting Phantoms worked their magic and the anticipated duel
between super receivers Ray Carroll (Cathedral) and Jeffrey Taylor
(Cantwell) got lost in the shuffle.
Mayfair 28, La Mirada 0
In what not long ago was the Suburban League’s premier matchup, winning
Monsoons weren’t impressive enough to scare anybody, and the Mysterious
Matadores remain a question mark.
Paraclete 38, Whittier Christian 12
First-half miscues + lost opportunities in the second half + Brandon
Buteyn 280 yards and three touchdowns = more obstacles than the
youthful, mistake-prone Heralds could handle.
