    @ Anonymous: 15 yards for late hit and piling on!
    I hope lessons were learned and that Adelanto, and all other teams, will never again lose the opportunity to win a championship because of any form of misconduct.

    I saw highlights of the Adelanto-Orange Vista game online, and it’s my impression that the game was allowed to get out of control.
    The overall quality of officiating has to improve, and there also has to be a concerted effort on the part of coaches and administrators to promote sportsmanship and enforce discipline.

    No problem. The caravan heading north is stretching from El Monte to Bakersfield with 5 taco trucks in the middle.

    I’m sure those Adelanto coaches and players are stealing wheels not fixing.

    So if the El Monte bus breaks-down, and the team is unable to arrive in time, will the Lions have to forfeit? I can only hope that nobody from Adelanto is doing the mechanical check-up on those wheels.
