Monrovia’s Wildcats Rush Past Arcadia’s Apaches

By Corey Kwok


The Monrovia Wildcats overwhelmed Arcadia Apaches with a ground assault of 488 yards and seven touchdowns for an easy 49-7 non-league victory at Dick Salter Stadium.

Kurt Scoby piloted the M-Town Express, rushing 12 times for 283 yards and five touchdowns for the Wildcats, whose quarterback Deshawn Potts racked up 177 all purpose yards and rushed for 114 of those, including a house call of his own for 64 yards.

Cornerback Darius McClain made many pivotal defensive contributions in the first half for Monrovia. He forced a fumble (that was recovered by Alejandro Vega) on Arcadia’s

second play from scrimmage, blocked a punt at the end of the Apaches’ second series, batted down two passes, and had an interception.

Arcadia quarterback Joey Harmon completed 15 of 31 passes for 201 yards and accounted for Arcadia’s lone paydirt strike of the game hitting Nico Cantos for a 60-yard score with 8:49 remaining in the second quarter.

Cantos led the Apaches in receiving with four catches for 109 yards.

Monrovia is now 2-0, Arcadia fell to 1-1.
