We’ve never seen such distinction between number one and two, and the bottom three. Very good and very bad football being played. Both Arcadia and TC won after a tie, both teams share number five spot (NOT A TYPO). MVL looks like it could be a scramble two thru five, as could the Almont. Old School Mid Valley appears weekly at www.midvalleysports.com
1.) Monrovia: It’s all systems go for M-Town. Paraclete taking notice. Derrick Johnson putting the hurt on opponents.
2.) Alhambra: Three game winning streak nice, but will have to ratchet it up in the Almont. We want to know more about James Martin.
3.) Arroyo: Offensive line exposed by athletic Walnut defense or was it just an off night? Any questions about Steven Rivera’s toughness have been answered.
4.) San Gabriel: This week’s contest with San Marino critical. Covarrubias, Covarrubias, get the ball to Covarrubias.
5.) Temple City: White celebrates return to Mead with first TC victory. Who is David Spratt and where did he come from?
5.) Arcadia: Apaches have more weapons than most think. This includes Jason Mach. Overlook at your own risk.
7.) Rosemead: Note to Koffler; Survive South Hills, prepare for MVL. Luis Diaz back on the field, is a good thing.
8.) El Monte: Things don’t get any easier against Rowland, see Rosemead (above) for game plan. Quang Phong never quits.
9.) Gabrielino: Not horrid, but not good, needs an identity and could find it in MVL’s third playoff spot.
10.) South El Monte: “When you look through the years…”
11.) Mt. View: “…and see what you could have been, oh what you might have been…”
12.) Duarte: “…If you had, had more time.”
