Our “One Year Ago” series moves into Week 9. Rosemead-Arroyo has been a great rivalry for decades and last year was no exception. Rich Whittington was on hand to take it all in as Ivan Ostry and the Panthers ran over the Knights on Friday night October 25, 2019.

(Rosemead) – Quarterback Ivan Ostry had a big night for Rosemead Friday evening, as the Panthers defeated the visiting Arroyo Knights, 27-14, in front of a large crowd at Rod Marinelli Stadium.

Ostry carried the ball for the Panthers, both literally and figuratively. He ran 24 times for 391 yards, including TD runs of 4, 75, and 80 yards. Ostry also connected with receiver David Padilla for a 23 yard scoring “catch and run”. The remainder of the Rosemead scoring was provided by Angel Bernal, who converted 3 of 4 PAT attempts.

Arroyo’s scoring offense was provided by Adrian Calvillo, who carried the ball 27 times for 156 yards, including scoring runs of 2 and 3 yards. Ramiro Piza added the balance of the scoring, as he converted both of his PAT attempts. The Knights (4-5, 2-2 in Mission Valley League play) kept the game close throughout, but simply did not have
an answer for Ostry’s running ability.

With the win, Rosemead improves to 6-3, 2-2 in the Mission Valley league.

Next Friday, 11/1/19, finds both of these teams at home, as they close out their Mission Valley League season. Arroyo will take on the Gabrielino Eagles, while Rosemead will do battle with the Mountain View Vikings. Kickoff for both of these contests is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

    Ostry has been under the radar all season he’s just been carrying his team all year quietly. His name has not been mentioned by Fred Robledo or James Escarcega at all. I have a feeling that will change this week. 391 yards on 24 carries averages out to 16 yards per carry those numbers can’t be denied. With that win Rosemead not only ends the drought against Arroyo but pretty much gets them into the playoffs. Also puts Arroyo in a position either win and get in or lose and go home.

    391 yards!!!! Wow! Never did I think one player would do so much damage against a Jim Singiser defense. But the offense is what really hurt us last night. We missed so many opportunities dropped balls, penalties and just straight missing open targets. We’ve got to get better going forward. Mr Ostry job well done. You played the game of your life and you deserve all the credit. Congratulations Rosemead, we’ve been on the other side of these games so many times but I’ve learned to be humble in defeat. We are now in a must win next week.
