Sierra Vista vs. Gladstone (at Citrus College)
The Gladiators are riding high and hitting hard, but if there is an opportunity for them to get caught off guard it is against the Dons. Take SV in the upset.
Prediction: Sierra Vista 22 Gladstone 21
Bell Gardens at El Monte
The Lions have traditionally struggled against the Lancers. They will still struggle, but that’s not to say they won’t win. Go with the home team and a combined 75 points between both schools.
Prediction: El Monte 49 Bell Gardens 42
La Canada at Arroyo
It would be a nice win for the Spartans, but it’s a must win for the Knights. The rest of the MVL is watching and waiting for the Arroyo Empire to fall. Peter Aholoka is the difference.
Prediction: Arroyo 27 La Canada 10
Arcadia at Burbank
We’d like the Apaches more if they were at home, but would still go with the Bank. The Bulldogs have more weapons than Burroughs and will unleash them Friday night.
Prediction: Burbank 31 Arcadia 12
Mt. View at Lynwood
View is looking to go 4-1 and they have just the team to do it against. Lynwood (both teams are nicknamed “Vikings”) has speed, View is showing a lot of discipline in the double wing.
Prediction: Mt. View 21 Lynwood 16
Rosemead at Temple City
Based on the recent number of flags and suspect play, this game looks real clumsy and awfully long. Panthers edge the Rams.
Prediction: Rosemead 19 Temple City 10
San Marino at South El Monte
We thought this would be a better game back in the spring, and it’s not because of the Eagles we don’t think so now. The Titans are flirting with elite status in the division, quarterback Matt Wofford is an MVP candidate.
Prediction: San Marino 30 South El Monte 14
Azusa at Duarte
The Aztecs bring a 27 game Montview winning streak into this contest and it is officially in jeopardy. The Falcons have a few more guys, and will pull it out late.
Prediction: Duarte 33 Azusa 31
Ganesha at La Puente
Will the Warriors have a hang over after the loss to Gladstone and injury to Ivan Vasquez? Yeah, probably…will it be enough to cost them the “W” against the Giants? Nope.
Prediction: La Puente 21 Ganesha 18
Monrovia at St. Francis
Should be a great game, should be game the Wildcats pull out. M-Town is so good it doesn’t need to fear a private team as much as it needs to fear itself. To quote a phrase; through the first part of each of their games this season; they have been softer than their mother’s love.
Prediction: St. Francis 34 Monrovia 28
Baldwin Park at San Dimas
Nope. Saints roll in SD version of La Fiesta Grande.
Prediction: San Dimas 45 Baldwin Park 7
Rio Hondo Prep at Big Bear
Schools with smaller enrollments are playing at higher levels. If the Kares are to get the attention they deserve, they need to petition the Olympic for entry. Oh, by the way they beat Big Bear.
Prediction: Rio Hondo Prep 35
