After going down 17-0 in the first half, the Monrovia Wildcats came back to score 17 unanswered points of their own in the second half and then outscored the San Dimas Saints, 7-6, in overtime to win 24-23 Friday night.
In the last five years, these teams have won all five of the Mid-Valley Division titles (Monrovia 3, San Dimas 2), and even though the Wildcats have been moved to the Central Division, this game was as heated as ever between rivals.
Jordan Nathan was the man of the hour for Monrovia. Jordan caught four passes for 107-yards including a 79-yard bolt to paydirt to tie the game at 17. He also blocked the San Dimas extra point attempt in overtime to seal the victory.
Asaph Zamora was efficient in his first outing as the quarterback for the Wildcats hitting on 13 of 20 passes for 247-yards and three touchdowns. His top receiver was Aubrey Mosley who grabbed four balls for 74-yards and two touchdowns. Mosley also caught the tying touchdown in overtime for the Cats.
