Claremont (2-0) vs. Covina (1-0) at Covina District Stadium (Covina, CA), 7:00pm  

Duy Tran-Sampson has run for nearly 400 yards and has six touchdowns in two games. Justin Smith gives Tran-Sampson breathers and has three touchdowns. Both have account for nine of the 11 touchdowns the Wolfpack have posted. Eric Williams leads the Colts with 120 all-purpose yards and Andrew Apodaca scored three touchdowns in first game of the season.

Kaiser (1-0) at Cajon (2-0)

Kats get huge win over San Gorgonio and now face an undefeated Cowboys. Road gets slightly easier next week when they face Valley View. Joshua Johnson ran wild over S.G. and now faces a defense that gave up 134 yards in a win. Kats must defend against the pass as Jayden Daniels has amassed 523 yards and five touchdowns.

Monrovia (0-2) at Arcadia (0-1)

At one time this would be the marquee matchup in the Valley. Now both teams are struggling on defense as they have given up 115 points combined. Asaph Zamora is questionable for the game against Arcadia. Lawrence Spicer has only run for 108 yards and the Wildcats defense is in complete chaos. The Apaches quarterback Nico Hillier passed for 230 yards and three touchdowns in the loss against Bell Gardens. Bradley Mills ran for 88 yards and touchdown.

San Dimas (1-0) at Diamond Bar (2-0)

Brahma fans have been down this road before. Promising preseason falls flat once in the season really begins. Dimaggio Rico has run for 329 yards and eight touchdowns for Diamond Bar. Kyle Yada leads the team in recieving yards. Saints rolled to a big win over Marantha to start the season. Week off to prepare for rushing attack. Noah Maldonado and Edward Siapno both amassed over 100 yards in the win.

Glendora (CA) at San Gorgonio (San Bernardino, CA)

It looks like the Tartans have the perfect formula to beat San Gorgonio. Matt Fink and Andrew Montano could run wild as Kaiser’s Joshua Johnson ran for over 200 yards. Fink is a dual-threat which will keep the Spartans defense on its heals. Xzavier Leslie and Kaleb Hayes have run for 165 yards a piece in two games for San Gorgonio.

Colony (1-1) at Bishop Amat (1-1)

Titans have schedule tough to begin their defense of their Central Division title. Only Charter Oak has as tough a start to the season. Colony’s loss last week was a tough one, but one that can be forgiven. The secondary and defense must play better to win. Balance attack for the Lancers is the recipe for success. Nearly upset Mater Dei two weeks ago and upset Servite last week. Tough to think they would be looking ahead to next week.

Damien (1-0) at Charter Oak (1-1)

Zion Echols will be featured in the Charger offense and Kam Brown will find recievers all night. Feel that last Friday’s game was two fold issue. First, Charter Oak had Nevada hangover. Lastly, La Mirada is good. Spartans will be tough to stop on the ground as Dylan Thigpen ran for 201 yards in win against Roosevelt.

West Covina (0-2) vs South Hills (1-1) at Covina District Stadium

Bulldogs are the best winless team in the Valley. Faced two division favorites and played tough in both. If they had their best on the field, I feel that last week would have been different at St. Francis. West Covina should try to find away to give Prentiss Busby more touches. Huskies you have a problem! No offense for the second straight season and defense looked very average against La Habra in loss. In two games South Hills has a total of 303 yards of offense.
