Friday Night Aftermath: Monrovia, Pasadena Poly win; Muir, Maranatha, Rosemead and Rio Hondo Prep slip.


Friday’s results

Bonita 49, Muir 25 — Giomani Johnson scored three touchdowns in the final period to lead the Bearcats. The score was 30-25 with 4:49 left in the game.

Village Christian 34, Rosemead 0 — The Panthers had plenty of chances. Three of their first four drives went inside the 26 and twice were stopped on fourth down and had a fumble at the Village Christian 8. Matt Fregoso finished with 123 yards on 34 carries.

San Dimas 56, Maranatha 20 — Losing Joshua Jones to a knee injury was big for the Minutemen, but not sure if his presence would have made the difference in this one. San Dimas led something like 42-0 at halftime. Big plays from Codee Watts and Theo Darlington helped the Saints, who will host Monrovia in next week’s Mid-Valley Division semifinals.

Monrovia 21, San Dimas 7 — Schurr turned the ball over four times and were penalized 11 times as the Wildcats capitalized to run away with the win. Nick Bueno for the most part was contained. He finished with 108 yards rushing on 22 carries. He scored from 24 yards out early in the third quarter. Three penalties in that drive moved the ball all the way to the Schurr 24. Christian Blanco scored from 25 yards early in the second quarter, but it was Andrew Plasencia who recovered a Schurr fumble that set up that score. He intercepted a pass later in the game and returned in 12 yards for a score to give the Wildcats a 21-0 lead. Schurr on its first five possessions resulted in a punt, turnover, turnover, punt, punt. Aaron Cantu finished with 215 yards on 25-of-38 passing and a touchdown. Monrovia will visit San Dimas in next week’s semifinals, likely to be played Saturday night.

Pasadena Poly 43, Desert Christian 27 — Blaked Edwards rushed for over 200 yards and quarterback Hunter Merryman threw for two touchdown passes. The Panthers will play at top-seed Bishop next week.

Boron 14, Rio Hondo Prep 6 — This was the Kares’ earliest playoff exit since 2007 when they were eliminated in the opening round. Rio Hondo Prep’s lone losses this season came to Boron, which defeated Rio Hondo Prep 36-28 in the fourth game of the season.
