The Monrovia Wildcats saw its three year reign of the Mid-Valley Division come to an end Friday night at Antelope Valley College when Paraclete Spirits kicker Andrew Jimenez drilled an 18-yard field goal with 30 seconds remaining to give the Spirits a 22-21 victory.

As always it was Kurt Scoby who led the Wildcats. Scoby rushed for 186 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns. Monrovia was derailed, however, by the Paraclete running game led by Melquise Stovall’s 203 yards on 30-carries that not only ate up yardage but much of the game clock.

The Spirits built up an early 19-7 lead only to see Monrovia come all the way back and take the advantage, 21-19, on a 4-yard run by Scoby late in the contest.

The Wildcats finish the season with an 11-2 record. Paraclete improves to 9-4 and will face San Dimas in the Mid-Valley Division title game this Friday.
