This is not the View of old. (Victor) Ambruso is doing a good job over there. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good,” said Rosemead head coach Marc Paramo.
Paramo knew this for a fact as it took Steven Nava’s touchdown pass to Luis Luna on the first possession in overtime to lead the Rosemead Panthers to a 34-27 win over Mt. View Vikings Friday night at Marinelli Stadium.
Rosemead led 7-6 at the half, but trailed 27-20 late in the fourth quarter before tying the game on a Nava touchdown passes and then winning it in overtime.
The two teams exchanged leads or were tied six times. They were also evenly matched in the stat totals.
Nava finished 11 of 20 for 153-yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Vikings defensive back Trinidad Vargas had both picks.
Mt. View quarterback Chris Cervantes only completed 3 of 7 passes but totaled 160-yards and three scores. Adam Olivas caught all three of the touchdown passes.
On the ground the Panthers were led by Alec Zavala who rushed for 196 yards and a touchdown. The Vikings get 152 yards out of Jose Moreno.
Rosemead (5-1, 1-0) faces South El Monte next week, while View (3-3, 0-1) takes on Gabrielino.
