The Pacific Belongs To Arcadia

147 receiving yards in the Pacific League title game for Rolandis Whitener

(Arcadia) The Crescenta Valley Falcons traveled to Arcadia Friday night with hopes for a win and with some help at least a part of the Pacific League title. The Apaches weren’t having any of it and trounced the Falcons 43-10 to stay unbeaten in league and capture the title.

The Falcons got the ball to start the game and marched all the way down to the Arcadia 20 yard line. Looking at fourth and five, Crescenta Valley decided to go for it and came up short.

Starting at their own 20, the Apaches only needed four plays to cover the 80 yards with Damarco Moorer scoring on a five-yard run. The touchdown was set up on a 58-yard strike from Dylan Guerra to Rolandis Whitener.

Holding on to a 6-0 lead Arcadia put another seven play drive together down to the CV 22. When the drive stalled Christian Reyes came on to boot at 39-yard field goal to push the lead to 9-0.

Moorer got his second touchdown on the night on a three yard run with 7:31 left in the first half to cap a five play drive. The drive was set up on a fumble by Daniel Cho at his own 22.

The Falcons finally got on the board on their next play from scrimmage. Cole Doyle called his own number and outraced the Apache defense to paydirt.

Arcadia answered the CV score on its next drive. Torey Brumfield scored on a four yard run that finished off a nine play, 66-yard drive.

The Apaches extended the lead to 26-7 as time wound down in the first half. Reyes added a 29 yard field goal as the clock showed 0:00.

Arcadia got the ball to start the second half and wasted no time lighting up the scoreboard. Guerra found Dylan Wright for a 38-yard strike and after the Reyes extra point, the Falcons found themselves down 33-7.

It was Moorer again this time on defense to extend the lead to 40-7 as he stepped in front of a Doyle pass and raced 58-yards for the score.

The teams traded field goals to end the game. A 28 yarder by Kevin McCollum and a 42 yarder by Reyes.

Both teams will now await Sunday’s playoff selection pairings to see where they will end up next Friday.

    My son graduated a year ago, but every encounter whether it be be in 7 on 7 passing league or in games has been hostile. I have personally seen the coaches from CV acting in a classless way and even witnessed a referee kick one of their coaches off sideline. CV has been and always will be obnoxious spoiled brats!!!

    Best quote of the year:
    “Policky, who once finished 0-10 as Hoover’s coach in 2011, savored the victory.

    “There was a long road to this point, so it feels pretty good,” he said. “We had a group of kids who worked their tails off and I’m happy for them and proud of them.”

    Policky also had a message for league detractors who criticized his program and the number of transfers it’s received, which is over 20 in the last four years.

    “Piss on you and you can all go to hell,” Policky said. “Some of the stuff is just ridiculous man. The CIF has looked into us on so many different things and people are still coming after us.”

    I asked Arcadia admin Friday why there wasn’t a hand shake. He said he was made aware of the conflict before the game during warm ups and was aware of very hard feelings on both sides going into this week. There have been some dirty tactics used against Arcadia this year that border on harassment. If you think they play with a chip on their shoulder it is understandable if you know what’s been going on. He decided since he knew there was animosity from both sides and there was a problem before the game it put both schools “in a really tough spot” if something happened during the handshake. He decided in this case it was better to avoid that for both schools. He told the CV coach directly if CV was blamed for not shaking hands to tell that person Arcadia made the call not him.

    @Anonymous i know right, that was sore of cv to just stall like that. Usually, cv should be known for their class coaching but yet, they just walk off of the field like a bunch of Tom Bradys (following the loss to Nick Foles’ eagles) . That really changes cv’s coaches reputation.

    @Pacific If your son plays for the program you understand the scrutiny and accusations thrown at them weekly. They have done well to move past these attempts from other schools to impede their goals. If you can’t beat them on the field then sling mud at them and see if they’ll crack is the strategy. They played physical and smart football last night and other schools can’t stand it. I’ve spent many hours at Arcadia and their stiudents are exceptionally well behaved, helpful and talented. I wish I am lucky enough for my own students to attend there.

    Looks as if one side of this rivalry is having problems with the changing results. These problems weren’t happening as long as CV was winning these games. Easy to find fault when the result isn’t what you want.

    I live in Arcadia, my son has played for Arcadia the last 4 years and has played with most those kids since day 1…..I can understand how you have to blame it on something other than Arcadia was better last night. Those kids work hard and play hard….they earned that win

    Saw the dust up before the game and was wondering what might happen after the game during the handshake. CV said they don’t like or respect Arcadia, the feeling is probably mutual. Game was well played and clean for a rivalry game. There was 1 or 2 personal fouls, non on Arcadia so those kids seem pretty well controlled. I saw the dust up and to blame one side for it is wrong. These things happen in physical games. Maybe some CV fans forget how their coaches behaved in previous meetings.

    Pacific there is nothing more gratifying then having a perfect season and winning a CIF title with a bunch of homegrown kids. Try it!!!

    Anonymous your administration realize it has no control over its coaches or players so they asked CV to pass on the post game handshake.

    The decision not to have the traditional hand shake after the game was made by Arcadia admin not CV. I was there and agree with that decision. There was a charged atmosphere between the teams and coaches during pregame. Agree or disagree if something hapened during the hand shake there would many on here wondering why nobody did anything to prevent it. Something was done and now both teams head to the playoffs.

    The principle of Arcadia told the CV coach to avoid the handshake for saftey reasons.

    CV coach said the Arcadia admin told them to leave before the handshake for safety reasons….I don’t think that happened, CV players were walking towards the bus before the game was over.

    Good job apaches, too bad Crescenta Valley coaches and players are a bunch of sore losers.
    For coaches to allow it, shows how classless and trash they are.

    What a season Apaches, proud of those boys they worked hard and this is the result. There was a lot of doubter mostly saying we had to go thru Muir, Burbank and CV and that it wouldn’t happen. 7-0 league champs, well deserved
