Game Night: Week Two

Montebello QB Gabriel Tapia will lead the Oilers against Whittier this week

All kickoffs are  at 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise indicated

Thursday September 7

Montebello (1-1) at Whittier (1-1) (at California) 

Last Year: Montebello 21-7

The Oilers picked it up last week with a win over St. Paul. Whittier, after falling to Sonora in the opener rebounded to beat Kennedy handily last week. Montebello’s offense has been effective from opening night putting 78 points on the board in the first two weeks. The offense and defense should be dominant here. Montebello rolls.

Montebello 41 Whittier 17


Friday September 8

Hart (0-1) at Arcadia (1-1) 

The Apaches looked lost last week but that happens frequently against the likes of Cathedral. Hart isn’t Cathedral, but the Indians are always a threat to win the tough Foothill League. Arcadia will compete and keep it close, maybe even into the fourth quarter. But in the end Hart comes away with the victory. The Indians have a little too much.

Hart 27 Arcadia 17      


Glendora (1-1) at Charter Oak (2-0)

Last Year: Charter Oak 43-0

Big test for Glendora. If the Tartans thought Damien was rough last week wait until they get a load of the Chargers. Lou Farrar’s crew looked dominant in a Zero Week win over Northview and reached another level last week in a rout of Colony. Glendora doesn’t have the athletes or the firepower to stay with CO. The Chargers jump out early and never look back.

Charter Oak 35 Glendora 14 


Covina (1-1) at Diamond Bar (0-2)

Last Year: Diamond Bar 27-7

The Kevin Argumosa era is off to a rocky start at Diamond Bar. An opening night loss to Alta Loma was understandable but when the Brahmas lost the Branding Iron last week to Walnut, eyebrows were raised. Covina fell to Arroyo, okay, but then dropped 56 on Pioneer, okay! The Colts have some offensive weapons in Nin Burns II, 464 yards passing, Erik Cuellar, 305 yards rushing and Tristan Sprague, 190 yards receiving. They should all be on display against D-Bar. Colts get it done.

Covina 31 Diamond Bar 24


Downey (1-1) at Burbank (1-1) (at Burroughs)

Last Year: Downey 7-6

The Vikings bounced back from a Zero Week thrashing to knock off Hart. Last week they actually looked like…well…like Downey. Burbank fell to Canyon last week after an impressive opening  night win over Monrovia. If Downey plays its game the Vikes should prevail- just too much talent. Burbank never lays down and it will be another tough out here. Bulldogs hang around but Downey emerges with the win.

Downey 20 Burbank 13


Santa Fe (0-2) at Northview (1-1) (Covina District Field)

Last Year: Northview 44-6

Santa Fe needs to get off the schnide. This might be the wrong week to do it. Northview looked like itself again last week by crunching Rosemead after getting crunched by Charter Oak. Santa Fe should hang around, maybe even grab an early lead, however the Vikings offense will eventually have too much. Northview wins its second.

Northview 35 Santa Fe 14


El Monte (1-1) at San Marino (1-1)

Both teams got off the floor last week. El Monte outscored Southlands Christian while San Marino took care of Dominguez. The Titans also hung around Los Altos in the opener scoring 28 points. El Monte looks ready to compete, maybe even take the next step into the post season. But this night will belong to San Marino. Titans pull away in the fourth.

San Marino 28 El Monte 17


Schurr (2-0) at Arroyo (2-0)

Last Year: Arroyo 42-28, 2nd Round CIF Div 12 Playoffs

Arroyo Head Coach Jim Singiser had a revelation this week when taking about his game plan. “Watch out for the pass!” he said. Gee thanks Coach, we’ll do that. Yes Ernesto Camacho will be throwing the ball. Schurr has revealed a few weapons of its own so far this year with receiver Lance Babb, quarterback Miguel Aguero and all purpose player Francisco Remigio all having nice starts. Both teams can score and I’m sure they will. Almost a pick ’em game. Flip a coin. I did and it landed on the Knights.

    NO dog in this fight Gentlemen, just wanna mention after the exciting game between Northview and Rosemead (freshman football) that I was invited to, I returned yesterday to watch a well put together Rosemead Freshman team surgically, methodically and just plan out work Artesia H.S 34 -0, it’s funny because I never thought I would be interested in FRESHMEN football at any Division, but these players are like “Must see tv”.And love the parent that keeps yelling “release the beast”…..hahaha.

    To Knight, Just Don’t worry about Cathedral they will be tested next week with Loyola and come playoff time with Upland in Their Division. Much respect to Arroyo for Their CIF Title,but lay off other School’s especially Cathedral. They have nothing to do with Arroyo. Oh , I am not a Cathedral Fan but I respect every one and Their Divisions.

    great win by Warren with a talented QB and good coaching. Agree with We Get It, need to focus more on getting the team ready for playoff which takes me back to my original point.

    Oh now it’s CIF yea ok! D1fan
    Blah blah blah… What makes you think cathedral beats Arroyo 100-0? By Talking? Paper champs! You can’t keep saying we’d beat you we’d beat them. Blah blah blah just freaking play someone around your division please.What would the score be if you played Mater Dei? Seems like a better comparison D1 playing a D2 school rather than a D2 school playing D11 dontcha think? Also don’t play the recruiting card with me so many kids get offered early and flame out. BTW, How many 5’10 150lb qbs do you see playing D1 football? not many. If he truly is that special to be one of the few that can let the kid show it vs equal competition. What does he get by beating D11, 12 opponents? JT Daniels gets to prove it every week why he’s the number 1 qb in the nation and has been for two years. Don’t you think your school owes it to him? Don’t you think you’re school is doing him a disservice by playing inferior competition? When he does get to college he’ll be so overwhelmed by the speed and complexity it’s gonna make his head spin.

    To Friday Knight, why do you keep putting Cathedral in every topic. If they played Arroyo they would win 100-0 with a running clock. By The way Knight. Bryce Young is Rated The Number 1 Sophmore QB in The Nation. He has over 16 D1 Offers right now.

    Tapia and Arguero are the best Qbs around? Tonight you’ll see the best Qb in the area, he plays for the Knights. Cool thing is they’ll settle on the field. Good luck to all tonight. Should be a great night for football.
    Hopefully Cathedral guys don’t come on here talking about They have the best qb. Since they like to interject every topic and make it about them.

    @ Anonymous, I agree with a lot of what you are saying and that is why I said Pete needs to throw more. Miguel is a good QB but I think Tapia, if they throw more, will show he is the overall better QB of the two. Just my opinion QB Obi Wan. Just week three, we have a whole season still.

    @ Oiler Nation, I’m a Whittier Cardinal parent.
    I gotta tip my hat to Montebello. They came out in the 3rd quarter and took it to us. Better yet, the entire second half as they gave us a gimme TD in the last few seconds. Montebello will be a formidable opponent for any team on their schedule. Good luck the rest of the season.

    Stupid people!! Keep talking. You cannot judge a team till its over. We played pretty bad tonight and just went through Whittier like nothing. Hopefully we can play solid on both sides. As for Tapia, he’s a all around player. I’d rather have a multi dimensional QB compared to a one dimensional. Pretty obvious what can happen. On top of that he’s a great kid and a great competitor. Time will tell when we play Schurr. They have a great group of kids that have never beat the Oilers. They ask him every week for two years to go out and perform at a high level and he’s done exactly that. He and the Oilers will be ready for Schurr!
    As for Cardinal Pride, you get a taste in two weeks. That night will be for stat padding. No doubt about it… Don’t talk crap when you guys are the most irrelevant in the area for the last 2 decades. Be careful for what you wish for…

    He hasn’t faced a team with a fast good sized defense yet. Pressure and hurried throws make him very ordinary. St Paul’s defense is vastly overrated.

    When you roll to the right and through deep on broken plays, or throw 5 yrd hitch routes of a play action you cannot be very successful as a QB. Yes that is what Montebello has for a passer. I mean damn Schurrs QB is like 5’6 and has better passing stats right now and had them last year too. The kid throws dimes! Any who good look tonight hopefully your passer shows up against Whittier. Because your Defense is in Ontario somewhere

    @Oiler 88

    Seen and coached plenty of quarterbacks… the kid on the hill can flat out play! Tapia has size on him but that’s it! No one has developed tapia in the past two years. I know he can throw a fade route but I need to see tapia make plays in the pocket reading a defense. There’s a reason the kid on the hill is out performing Tapia… one word! Coaching! Whether it’s his private 7on7 coach, Montebello’s QB… or his private coach, I don’t see the rise in performance. He makes plays with his feet and that’s what he does! I saw him run around all over the place vs Garfield.
    Not sold on him being elite in the area! Average

    Pete needs to work on the passing game more because this RPO will only take you so far in the playoff when they play the bigger boys. Whittier is the perfect team for Tapia to put up some passing numbers. He is a much better passer than the kid on the hill and needs some stats to go along with his rushing yards.

    The Oilers have lubrication on their side, which is likely the factor which put them over the top versus St. Paul. I’m inclined to support this petroleum-based unit again tonight, as they play Whittier, a team of lower viscosity.
