Commentary: Did coach know something we didn’t know well in advance? Montebello scheduled two games versus Mid-Valley Divisional powers in Rosemead and Arroyo and then the Almont League gets moved into the same division. Interesting. But all joking aside, the Oilers have a solid preseason against five playoff teams. One of the bad things about the change in division is that now only two teams from the Almont League are guaranteed playoffs spots. It’s hard to envision the Oilers finishing in the top 2. I don’t think they’re there…yet. I wish them the best of luck.
Here’s the conversation with Gonzalez -
