Some information on the results of game reports that were too late for our early deadlines:
El Rancho 21-14 over Cerritos, as Art Franco rushed for 242 yards and two touchdowns, and quarterback Troy Campos, a late replacement for starter Josh Perea who sat out with an ankle injury, scored on a 3-yard sneak to break a 14-14 tie in the third quarter. LInebacker Tate Harshbarger keyed a strong defensive effort with six tackles and Jake Garcia knocked down a fourth-and-goal pass in the end zone with four seconds to play to preserve the victory.
Whittier Christian 37-30 over host Santa Paula, the Heralds battling back from a 27-13 halftime deficit. Tailback Garrett Fulbright rushed for 229 yards and three touchdowns, and defensive lineman Jeff Worthy had a monster game with 13 solo tackles, two sacks, and four tackles for losses. Quarterback Stephen Anderson struggled with just eight completions in 20 attempts but for a respectable 160 yards and two scores. He was intercepted three times.
