Prep 15 for 10/23/09

I bested my best week (11-4 in Week 5) by posting a 13-2 mark in Week 6! Either I’m picking the easy ones or all this research is paying off. One huge game (Vista Murrieta-Temecula Chaparral) and a bunch of OK games this week. I’ll be covering Riverside North at Corona Centennial tonight for the Riverside Press-Enterprise. Game starts at 7 p.m.

HIGH SCHOOL:

Rancho Cucamonga Alta Loma at Upland — The Braves (0-6 overall, 0-1 Baseline) have routinely suffered bad loss after bad loss this season; the most recent example being a 61-17 thumping from Etiwanda in Week 6. The team is led by sophomore RB Donta Abron (5-foot-8, 176 pounds), who is averaging 130 ruhing yards a game. Senior QB Harrison Stewart (6-0, 200) and the offense struggled but the Highlanders (6-0, 1-0) were capable defensively in defeating Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos, 17-0, last week.
UPLAND 24, ALTA LOMA 7.

Riverside Arlington at Riverside Ramona — Junior RB Superiorr Reid ran for 254 yards and three TDs as the Lions (5-1 overall, 2-1 Inland Valley) defeated Moreno Valley, 35-8, in Week 6. Senior QB Zach Adkins (6-1, 195) leads the Rams (1-5, 0-3), who have lost four consecutive. Adkins completed 15 of 34 pass attempts for 159 yards and a TD last week in a 21-16 loss to Moreno Valley Canyon Springs.
ARLINGTON 32, RAMONA 12.

Colton at San Bernardino — Senior RB Derrick Malone (6-2, 205) leads the Yellowjackets (5-1 overall, 1-0 San Andreas) into this old-school San Bernardino County matchup. Malone ran for 215 yards and three TDs last week in a 31-14 victory over San Bernardino Arroyo Valley. The Cardinals haven’t won a game since Week 1. Junior QB De’andre Effinger (6-0, 181) passed for 193 yards and one TD in a 42-6 loss to San Bernardino Cajon in Week 6.
COLTON 26, SAN BERNARDINO 6.

Corona at Riverside King — The tandem of senior RBs Jordon James (5-10, 194) and Demetrius Wright (6-1, 205) led the Panthers (2-4 overall, 1-2 Big VIII) to a 24-17 victory over Riverside North last week. James had 139 offensive yards while Wright added two total TDs. Junior RB Todd Handley (5-9, 175) has been outstanding for the Wolves (2-4, 1-2), scoring touchdowns of 60-or-more yards in every game this season. He had two in a 49-35 loss to Corona Santiago in Week 6.
CORONA 22, KING 20.

Fontana Miller at Rialto Carter — Senior QB Juan Flores (5-9, 175) is the engine that runs the Rebels (3-3 overall, 3-0 CBL), who have won three consecutive games. Flores completed 21 of 25 pass attempts for 225 yards and two TDs, and also gained 143 yards and one rushing TD in a 39-14 victory over Yucaipa last week. The Lions (3-3, 2-1) are on their way up in the CBL after consecutive wins over cross-town rivals Rialto Eisenhower and Rialto. Senior RB Damian Robinson (5-9, 160) ran for 162 yards and two TDs in a 33-25 win over Rialto in Week 6.
MILLER 35, CARTER 32.

Riverside North at Corona Centennial — A husky-sized battle. Despite their powerful running game, the North Huskies (2-4 overall, 0-3 Big VIII) have been unable to win since Week 2, dropping four consecutive. Junior RB Dion Bass (5-9, 190) returned from illness to run for 97 yards and two TDs as the Centennial Huskies (5-1, 3-0) defeated Riverside Poly, 56-16, last week.
CENTENNIAL 31, NORTH 14.

Riverside Norte Vista at Fontana Kaiser — The Braves (6-0 overall, 1-0 Sunkist) are on the kind of roll never before seen at NoVi, which defeated Jurupa Valley, 54-25, last week. The Cats (3-3, 1-0) rebounded from a Week 5 loss to Colton with a victory over Riverside Patriot, 32-6, in Week 6.
KAISER 17, NORTE VISTA 14.

Eastvale Roosevelt Riverside Poly — The Mustangs (4-2 overall, 1-2 Big VIII) came up short last week against Norco despite three rushing TDs from senior RB Devon Dozier (5-6, 180) in a 30-27 loss. The Bears (3-3, 1-2) have lost three of their last four, including a 56-16 pummeling by Corona Centennial in Week 6.
ROOSEVELT 28, POLY 14.

Rancho Cucamonga at Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos — Senior QB Greg Watson (6-0, 195) completed 15 of 21 passes for 219 yards and one TD, and senior RB Michael Boyd (5-11, 180) ran for 167 yards and 3 TDs as the Cougars (6-0 overall, 1-0 Baseline) remained unbeaten with a 52-24 victory over Claremont in Week 6. The Grizzlies (2-4, 0-1) were shut out, 17-0, last week by Upland. The score of this game might be even more lopsided.
RANCHO CUCAMONGA 35, LOS OSOS 7.

Moreno Valley Rancho Verde at Riverside La Sierra — The Mustangs (6-0 overall, 3-0 Inland Valley) continue to fire on all cylinders, having won their last two games by a combined scored of 106-34. The Eagles (5-1, 3-0) face a crucial four-week stretch that begins with this game. If La Sierra can win any two of its four remaining games (Rancho Verde, Moreno Valley Valley View, Arlington, Moreno Valley) it’ll will qualify for the the playoffs.
RANCHO VERDE 42, LA SIERRA 28.

Redlands East Valley at Rialto — The only worry that coach Kurt Bruich should have about his Wildcats (6-0 overall, 3-0 Citrus Belt) is that they start playing down to the level of competition in the CBL. You won’t fine mediocre play coming from senior QB Tyler Shreve (6-4, 220), who completed 10 of 12 pass attempts for 201 yards and three TDs in a 48-0 victory over Fontana in Week 6. Senior QB Nathan Tuioti (5-11, 175) ran for 167 yards and two TDs last week for the Knights (0-6, 0-3), who lost, 33-25, to Rialto Carter.
REDLANDS EAST VALLEY 55, RIALTO 7.

Corona Santiago at Norco — The Sharks (3-3 overall, 1-2 Big VIII) bounced back from their shutout loss to Eastvale Roosevelt in Week 5 with a 49-35 victory over Riverside King in Week 6. Senior QB Brandon Connette (6-2, 190) passed for four TDs and ran for another in that game. Junior RB Kelsey Young (5-11, 192) ran for 124 yards and two TDs as the Cougars (5-1, 3-0) defeated Eastvale Roosevelt, 30-27, last week. Norco’s leading rusher, senior RB Deantre Lewis (6-0, 194) did not play in that game.
NORCO 21, SANTIAGO 14.

Victorville Silverado at Barstow — After starting the season 0-2, the Hawks (5-2 overall, 1-0 Desert Sky) have been on a tear, winning each game since by no less than 11 points. Senior QB Jemeryn Jenkins (6-1, 194) completed 9 of 15 pass attempts for 82 yards and one TD and ran for 124 yards and two more TDs in a 25-11 victory over Victor Valley in Week 6. The Aztecs (5-1, 1-0) needed overtime to defeat Ridgecrest Burroughs, 28-21, last week. Senior RB Curtis Webb (5-11, 180) ran for 169 yards and scored three total TDs (2 rushing, 1 receiving) in the game.
SILVERADO 28, BARSTOW 26.

Vista Murrieta at Temecula Chaparral — The biggest game of the regular season for both teams. A win in this game probably means a league title and perhaps more importantly, a No. 1 or 2 seed in the Inland Division playoffs. Junior QB Derrick Brown (5-10, 180) passed for three TDs as the Broncos (6-0 overall, 1-0 Southwestern) remained unbeaten with a 28-0 victory over Elsinore Temescal Canyon last week. The Pumas (4-2, 1-0) made a big splash with a 70-0 victory at Cathedral City two weeks ago but returned to Earth with just a 24-point win over Murrieta Valley in Week 6. Chaparral’s defense returned three interceptions for TDs in that game. Led by senior DB Deshawn Hathorn (5-10, 165), who returned an interception 75 yards for a score as the Pumas won, 47-23.
CHAPARRAL 42, VISTA MURRIETA 35.

Yucaipa at Redlands — The Thunderbirds (3-3 overall, 1-2 Citrus Belt) just don’t have the athletes to compete with the best in the CBL, which has borne itself out in consecutive 35-7 and 39-14 losses to Redlands East Valley and Fontana Miller, respectively. Conversly, the Terriers (5-1, 3-0) intend on keeping up with REV and Miller but has yet to face either. Redlands has outscored recent opponents Fontana and Rialto Eisenhower 83-14 but clearly, bigger games await.
REDLANDS 25, YUCAIPA 12.

LAST WEEK: 13-2. SEASON: 42-18.
