(Norwalk) – Cannon Plooster booted a 37-yard field goal with 2:50 left in the fourth quarter to give the East a 10-7 win over the West in the 605 All-Star Game at Cerritos College Friday night.

The West had two chances to get even but Chase Keough fumbled in the first possession after Plooster’s kick and his last pass sailed out of the end zone with no time remaining and the East Celebration began. The West turned the ball over three times, two of them were first half  interceptions by Jaydon Logan (Artesia) who took home MVP honors for his efforts.

A little more Lavell Thompson was needed by the West side!

Both offenses struggled throughout the contest. Logan intercepted Michael LoVett III on the West’s third possession of the game. Later in the half he picked off El Rancho QB Andrew Perea. The West’s only score came on a big play when Keough connected with Lynwood’s Dante Spotville, who got behind the East secondary, for a 71-yard touchdown to tie the score at seven with 4:42 left in the first quarter.

The West had a shot to take the lead late in the fourth when they moved the ball down to the East six- yard line. But unfortunately for West HC Jack Williams, their starting kicker didn’t show up. Richard Cuellar (El Rancho) was pressed into action and missed a 23 yard field goal.

The East immediately answered by moving down to the West 20 to set up Plooster. The 37-yarder was merely a chip shot for the Mayfair kicker who has arguably the best leg in the valley.

The East scored first with 5:37 left in the first quarter when Gavin Pruett (Capistrano Valley) hit Kyle Harlin (Villa Park) for a 21 yard score. The East had one turnover- an interception thrown by Enrique Pacheco.

Pacheco from La Serna and La Mirada’s Christian Lara, who  also played quarterback for the East, had trouble establishing a rhythm. The passing game wasn’t much of a factor for the West either. Lavell Thompson had some big runs, especially late in the game, and finished with 71 yards on seven carries.

This was the second 605 win in three years for East/Buena Park Head Coach Anthony White.

    Does Downey HS have English 101 and grammar in their curriculum ?

    If your child and or children do not receive/does not receive a scholarship it has ZERO to do with the high school coach. I can understand the frustration and disappointment that goes into you feeling that the HS coach may be the reason but you shouldn’t. College coaches give out scholarships based on the ability of the player at the next level and or the potential that they may have down the line. Some kids are great HS players but ONLY GREAT HS PLAYERS. Their game may not translate well to the next level, which is unfortunately up to the discretion of the college coach. Unfortunately, some players do not apply themselves in the classroom or they may not possess the ability to play at the next level. It is very unfortunate but that is just the nature of the beast. My question to the people that question any HS coach…. don’t you think that the HS coach would get your child a scholarship IF they could? Wouldn’t it benefit the coach and the player to do just that? It would only help the program and attract more kids that may otherwise live in the area but go to another program. So to blame the coach is unfair. I understand why, but it is unfair. Whoever the coach may be. Don’t know the Downey coach nor do I care but I would be willing to bet that he goes to bat for his kids. When you rationally think about the situation…. The coach getting the kid a scholarship would only benefit his program and the idea that the school gets kids out on scholarships.

    You are right on! Downey is dirty yet they troll on families and parents who are standing by their son. And you hit the nail on the head, the Downey trollers are coaches/teachers and their family members (you mr. president). I will back your story 100% with CIF, all the lying and cheating.

    have to disagree with you on this one. I believe it’s the parents responsibility to make sure their kids are doing their homework when they get home so that if they have athletic ability they would be eligible to go to college. After all it is your son/daughter, why pass that responsibility on to a coach that is charge of 70 other kids? just saying

    So you are saying that it is the coach’s job to motivate the individual to be successful in the classroom?
    Have you ever heard of the term accountability?
    The coach is part of the support system but not the driver of that vehicle.
    It is the job of the individual to be motivated to perform in the classroom. It is their life and they control their quality of life by being accountable and performing when they need to.Pop Warner practices maybe you should try talking about the importance of academics and the impact it can have on their future. You know… just in case YOUR plan for them in the NFL doesn’t work out.
    The PARENTS should monitoring and pushing their kids to be successful. I bet every coach does this, besides if they didn’t wouldn’t coaches have a team full of kids who are ineligible?

    A good coach would motivate his team on the football field and in the classroom, not make excuses on the blogs and pretend to be a blogger trolling other bloggers.

    I think the parents will be/are happy with the fact that their son is going to receive a college degree and a once in a lifetime opportunity for FREE. Don’t you?

    You guys (The three dads) constantly complain about the scholarship deal. I don’t feel bad for you per se…. more so your son. You are probably one of the dads that transferred your son in hopes of a schollie. New school and still no schollie? I am sure there is no coincidence. It’s all the coaches fault.

    from an outsider, maybe study for your SAT test instead of being on this thread. Maybe that’s where schollie went. Things aren’t handed to you, you have to work for them. What you did on the football field is one thing but what did you do in the classroom? Some of the best football players i have ever seen never played college ball because they didn’t get the job done in the classroom. If that’s your story then just change your mindset and get the job done at jc or just keep blaming other people. your choice.

    I didn’t mean that he recruits player playing in the game, he uses the excuse that he will get them more exposure if they go and play at BP , on his youth camps send a great athletic kid that legally doesn’t belong to BP and watch how how will try everything to recruit

    The West kicker tore his MCL the day before the game. He would of won the west the game. He is money from 50 and helps with field position as he can kick it out of end zone. Ask around.

    @anonymous. Recruiting at a senior all star game? Man, I don’t know if coach White recruited your girl friend away from you in high school, but whatever fuels your hatred of this man runs deep.

    Let it go anonymous, life is to short to spread rumors and slander other people. Maybe if you spent a little less time trolling the message boards, you could hit the gym, get your swagger back and impress your girl at the high school reunion!
