In a battle of rivals it was running back Alec Zavala who led the red hot Rosemead Panthers to a 37-7 victory over the South El Monte Eagles on Friday night at South El Monte High School.

Zavala rushed for 119 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns to spark his team. He has now rushed for seven touchdowns on the season. It was his play that broke open a 14-7 game in the second half.

For the Eagles leading the way was running back Marcos Lopez who rushed for 89 yards on 25 carries. South’s lone touchdown came on a 43-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jamie Michel to Angel Reyes.

The victory was the Panthers sixth straight and keeps them on pace for a Week Ten showdown with Arroyo for the Mission Valley League title.
