La Puente (0-0) vs. Covina (0-1) at Covina District Stadium
C-Town lost its opener and will be in a bad mood when it meets LP. Prediction: Covina 24 La Puente 10
Friday, September 6th
Ayala (1-0) at Monrovia (0-0)
This is a monster game. It won’t decide the fate of the world, but it will give us an idea if Monrovia is great, or really great. We say really great.
Prediction: Monrovia 34 Ayala 28
Duarte (1-0) at San Marino (0-0)
The Falcons got a nice win last week, and face a well coached team this week. This will be a statement road win for Jason Martin and his Duarte team.
Prediction: Duarte 20 San Marino 17
Temple City (0-1) at Arroyo (0-1)
“The Mid Valley Classic” has lost some luster, but these teams are not “horrible”. In fact the Knights are pretty good, and the Rams are not as bad as they were last week. Still Arroyo easily.
Prediction: Arroyo 28 Temple City 7
Sierra Vista (0-0) at Baldwin Park (1-0)
For BP 2013 is a redemption tour after going 0-10 in 2012. Las week they got an El Monte team in transition, this week they get an SV team that knows how to grind and eat clock. Lee Evans, the bubbas up front, go with the Dons.
Prediction: Sierra Vista 21 Baldwin Park 14
Alhambra (0-1) vs. La Canada (0-0) at Moor Field
These are two programs that are reeling and in need of time and TLC. Go with the Moors at home, the energy level is a tad bit higher. Prediction: Alhambra 17 La Canada 6
Bassett (0-1) at Mountain View (0-0)
This will be a dog fight. These teams are evenly matched and eager. Bassett does not want a season of promise to start 0-2, and the the Vikings need every possible win considering the competition they’ll face in the Mission Valle League. Prediction: Bassett 31 Mountain View 23
Bosco Tech (0-1) at Gabrielino (1-0)
BT played Wilson tough, the Eagles shutout Contreras. The other thing the Eagles are playing for is a legacy. Expect Gabrielino to be tough at home/
Prediction: Gabrielino 33 Bosco Tech 14
Irvine (0-0) at Rosemead (0-0)
Mead was shutout by Irvine last year, but that was in Orange County. This year at home Mead will not be shutout, they’re just not going to win.
Prediction: Irvine 26 Rosemead 7
Nogales (0-1) at South El Monte (0-0)
South, at home, in “The Swamp”…go with them.
Prediction: South El Monte 30 Nogales 22
San Gabriel (0-1) at Glendale (0-0)
Nothing but love for the Matadors, but this will be all Nitros.
Prediction: Glendale 44 San Gabriel 7
El Monte (0-1) at Ontario Christian (0-1)
OC likes to run the ball, then run it some more, and then finally run it again. The Lions are playing now, but will start stringing together wins later.
Prediction: Ontario Christian 42 El Monte 17
Rio Hondo Prep at Mission Prep (San Luis Obispo)
In 2012 the Kares lost to MP in the regular season, and then beat them for a CIF title in November. We like them. Prediction: Rio Hondo Prep 28 Mission Prep 26
