Gomez Leads Knights to Rout of Rosemead

By Corey Kwok

El Monte

On the heels of leading his team to a huge victory Wednesday night against Gabrielino, Primitivo Gomez continued to cement his status amongst the area’s elite players. Gomez poured in 40 points in just three quarters of play, pulled down 15 rebounds and handed out three assists to spark Arroyo’s 63-30 rout of Rosemead Friday night at Vern Nelson Fieldhouse.

Edgar Lupercio added 12 points and four rebounds for the Knights. Arroyo’s defense was on a roll throughout, forcing the Panthers to settle for single digits in each of the four quarters. The Knights’ win ran their MVL record to 8-0 and clinches a share of the MVL title.

Arroyo seeks to lock up the banner outright and cap a perfect campaign next week with Wednesday and Friday games on the road at South El Monte and Mountain View, respectively.
