Lions Prey on Wolves

By MVS Staff

[El Monte] – Davon Booth and Abel Cueva had only eight touches combined but that’s all El Monte needed in their 63-7 shellacking of Sotomayor at home.

Booth opened up with scoring with a 23-yard touchdown run on the third play of the game and he added another one from 29-yards out later in the first.

Cueva got three carries for 102-yards one being a 81-yard dash to paydirt. He also had a 76-yard reception for a score.

Jesus “Oso” Garcia pounded it in from 7-yards out and senior JJ Reyes got in on the fun when he broke a 32-yard touchdown run, making it 43-0 in the first.

Sotomayor’s Logan Avery scored from the two yard line making it 43-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Lions freshmen standout Juaquin Andrade got three carries for 98-yards and touchdown. Carlos Zuria and Andrew Duong each had a score for El Monte.

Junior Martin Quintana picked off a Wolves pass in the fourth stopping a drive.

Booth finished with four carries for 72-yards and two touchdowns to go along with a interception.

El Monte (1-0) will travel to Glenn, while Sotomayor (0-1) will go home and host Beverly Hills.

    You guys are playing Glenn next week. This is the equivalent of scheduling Keppel or Marshall. Best part is this is the first game of a home and home which means that you scheduled this game along with Sotomayor for exactly this reason…. to pad stats and create phony stars. Booth and Cuevas are legit but now we’re talking about Montoya’s and Reyes and now some freshman come on man. Oh and someone coming on here from SEM dad talking about Reyes!!! Lol. Come on we know it’s you dad. You want us to believe you’re a dad from SEM yet you took the time to go watch an EM game? Lol yea right. Oh you people are so predictable. Ohhhh yea and goooooo Eagles wink wink

    Hahaha look at the EM honkers coming to the rescue. What I’m saying is why even bother with a Sotomayor or Glenn? MV and Gab are basically bye weeks. Rosemead and SEM are going to be a cake walk. The only school that will pose and threat is Arroyo and I still don’t think it’ll be close. You would think he’d want to schedule up, not just a few tough opponents.

    The next four EM opponents were a combined 37-11-1 all playoff teams in 2018. So ANONYMOUS I think that’s a better combined record of anyone else in the league. Not 100% sure though.

    The best? I’ve read he is one of the best.

    Orange Vista, San Marino, Eagle Rock all good tough teams. Check out a game.

    Seriously don’t understand why EM has such a weak schedule. Since last year all I’ve heard is “ground and pound” this and “best RB in the nation” that! They have these good players why not try and schedule a tough area opponent such as Arcadia or even West Covina? Why would you want to beat up on these little schools? Is he scared? Is he incompetent? Is he so insecure he needs to go 10-0 to feel good about his life? I would love to see Booth against a tough non MVL opponent. Guess we won’t have the chance.
