Star Picks: Batteries energized after 5 OTs on Friday

The Stang Fan and I will go head-to-head this season…

Melendez: 13-5 last week; total 90-38-1
Stang Fan: 16-2 last week; total 99-29-1

What a weekend. There definitely was no shortage of football this weekend, what with spending almost five hours Friday night at Maranatha, then spending my Saturday morning writing a story for Sunday’s paper and, of course, watching football on Sunday. Stang Fan had a pretty great week. He lost only two games when he picked Burbank over Arcadia and Crescenta Valley over Pasadena. A slate full of interesting games this week. Temple City likely will finish second in the Rio Hondo League behind Monrovia. The third-place spot will be a battle between South Pasadena and La Canada. St. Francis’ playoff hopes hang in the balance when the Golden Knights host St. Paul. Arcadia and Muir likely to win this week, but I can’t be so sure about Pasadena against Burbank.
