With St. Paul and San Gabriel being knocked off last week that leaves seven local teams still unbeaten. I did have both of those teams losing but although I had St. Paul losing to St. Francis last week, I thought San Gabriel would last until Week Ten before falling to Schurr. It happened a couple of weeks early when Bell Gardens turned the trick. Here’s how the other seven stack up.
Monrovia (8-0) – I said it last week and it’s worth repeating. The Wildcats are going undefeated. The only question is whether or not they drop 60 again in their last two games. My guess is yes.
Arroyo (8-0) – The Knights secured an undefeated season Friday night with a rout of Rosemead. If they lose to either Gabrielino or Mt. View in the last two weeks there should be an investigation.
Glendora (8-0) – The Tartans will roll over Los Osos and South Hills to close out an unbeaten year. It won’t be close.
El Rancho (9-0) – It’s been a great run for the Dons. It may be even better in the playoffs. But La Serna spoils the undefeated year Friday night in the last regular season game.
Warren (7-0) – The Bears are going to get it done. They’ll hammer Gahr Friday night and hold off Downey in Week Ten to finish off a perfect regular season.
Mayfair (7-0) – The Monsoons will go undefeated. If there’s a chance that they will lose to either Norwalk or Bellflower then there’s also a chance that I’ll be a starting linebacker for the Green Bay Packers.
Baldwin Park (8-0) – The Braves routed Wilson last week and will win out to go unbeaten. Montclair, their next opponent is 5-3, and although it may be close BP wins. The Braves work Workman in the season finale.
That’s my principle.
