Friday’s featured high school football games, schedule and predictions – San Gabriel Valley Tribune
The best local high school football games on Friday.
Monrovia (4-0) at San Dimas (4-1), 7 p.m .: The Wildcats are undefeated and have one of the best quarterback-receiver combinations in the region. QB Noah Rodriguez has already thrown for over 1,000 yards with 13 touchdowns, and half of those yards went to Carlos Hernandez, who caught eight touchdowns. The Wildcats have had two tight calls against West Covina and Los Altos, and it looks like their biggest challenge yet. The Saints’ only setback was a 14-point loss to unbeaten rival Bonita, and at home with their race-focused offense they have the potential to make life miserable for the Wildcats.
The choice : Monrovia
Glendora (5-0) at Diamond Ranch (1-3), 7 p.m .: The Tartans have not been tested since a 22-14 season opener over West Ranch and although on paper the Panthers only have one win, they have battled injuries and faced challenges. tough opponents. If the Panthers get back key players like quarterback Mario Martinez Jr., and a few others, they have a chance to make it a competitive game. But even in full health, the Tartans are probably better, but the Tartans had better not anticipate next week’s big game with Ayala undefeated, or it could be a trick game.
The choice: Glendora
Saint-Paul (4-0) at Santa Maria Righetti (0-3), 7 p.m .: The Swordsmen are coming off a convincing victory over Diamond Ranch and are now heading to the middle section to face a winless team, but also one that is in Division 2. The Swordsmen are probably the favorites, but don’t write about Righetti so quickly his opponents’ record is a combined total of 10-4 and one of Righetti’s losses was also a very good Camarillo team, 29-6.
The choice : St. Paul
La Serna (3-2) at Culver City (2-1), 7 p.m .: The Lancers have won three straight wins, but it should be their toughest test since the season opener losses to Bonita and Warren. While Culver City have just played three games, one was a loss to Loyola, one of the best teams in the Southern Section, and he beat the much-loved Pasadena a few weeks ago, 43-24. It’s definitely a ‘prove it’ type game for La Serna, as their three straight wins have come up against opponents with a combined record of 1-11. On the road, maybe that’s where the streak ends.
The choice : Culver city
