(El Monte) – El Monte, which beat Jurupa Hills 22-15 Friday night in the Division 12 semi finals, is still waiting on CIF’s decision on their status for the championship game.
Adelanto and Orange Vista were involved in a bench clearing brawl in the third quarter of their semi finals game with Adelanto leading 41-0 Friday night. The game was called at that point and the teams were disqualified which would mean that El Monte was the Division 12 Champs.
But now the situation is being reviewed and an investigation is underway. Is El Monte the Champions? Will the Lions play Adelanto? Orange Vista? Everything will be decided soon.
CIFSS Assistant Commissioner Thom Simmons released a statement that said in part “We are awaiting a report from the officials involved. Once that is received a decision will be made on what happens next by the Commissioner.”
