The Monrovia Wildcats won their 13th consecutive Mid-Valley Division CIF playoff game on Friday night with a 62-10 victory over the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers at Monrovia High School.
The three time defending champs were led by running back Kurt Scoby’s 14 carries for 198 yards and 5 touchdowns, including two 62-yard bursts. Scoby tied his season-high in touchdowns (which he earned against Arcadia in their second game of the season) with ease, bursting through the gaps in the defense.
With a 41-10 halftime score, the Wildcats never looked back and scored three more touchdowns in the second half to bury the Trail Blazers. Monrovia running backs Darione Jones added a pair of touchdowns and sophomore Kameron Johnson scored another to round out the scoring.
“Our offensive line played great, opening up some large holes for our run game. [Sierra Canyon] is a good football team, but they didn’t have numbers; the guys playing on the O-line were also playing D-line. They were tired and we took advantage of that,” said Monrovia Head Coach Ryan Maddox.
The Wildcats face Montebello next week. A victory would send Monrovia to the divisional semifinals for the sixth consecutive year.
