Prep 15 for 10/29/09

I took a step back from my best week (13-2 in Week 6) to go… 13-2 in Week 7. I got both the Rancho Cucamonga-Los Osos and Vista Murrieta-Chaparral games wrong, go figure. I could’ve been 14-1! Oh well. There are playoff implications abound this week. The Fontana Miller-Redlands game should be a doozy. Both schools are 4-0 in the Citrus Belt League. I’m covering the Norco-Riverside King game on Thursday night for the Riverside Press-Enterprise. Game time is 7 p.m.

HIGH SCHOOL:

Ridgecrest Burroughs at Victorville Silverado – Junior QB Derrick Dison (6-0, 175) was intercepted three times as the Burros (4-3 overall, 1-0 Desert Sky) lost last week at home, 14-7, to Granite Hills. Senior QB Jemeryn Jenkins (6-foot-1, 194 pounds) totaled 367 yards of offense (189 pass, 178 rush) and three TDs as the Hawks (6-2, 2-0) defeated Barstow, 40-12, in Week 7.
SILVERADO 32, BURROUGHS 14.

San Bernardino Cajon at Colton – This will be the biggest test of the season for the Cowboys (5-2 overall, 2-0 San Andreas), who struggle against bigger, more physical teams. Senior RB Derrick Malone (6-2, 205) ran for 79 yards and two TDs as the very physical Yellowjackets (6-1, 2-0) gained 345 rushing yards as a unit.
COLTON 20, CAJON 18.

Rialto Carter at Redlands East Valley – Senior RB Damian Robinson (5-9, 160) ran for 142 yards on 21 carries but the Lions (4-3 overall, 2-2 Citrus Belt) were shutout in the second half in losing, 32-10, last week to Fontana Miller. Senior QB Tyler Shreve is robot-accurate. He completed 13 of 16 passes for 214 and four TDs as the Wildcats (7-0, 4-0) defeated Rialto, 49-6, in Week 7.
REDLANDS EAST VALLEY 42, CARTER 16.

Corona Centennial at Corona Santiago – The backfield duo of senior RB Denzel Hawkins (5-7, 185) and junior RB Dion Bass (5-9, 190) combined for 169 yards and four TDs as the Huskies (6-1 overall, 4-0 Big VIII) decimated Riverside North, 52-20, last week. Senior QB Brandon Connette (6-2, 190) played his tail off, passing for four TDs and running for another but the Sharks (3-4, 2-2) lost, 44-39, to Norco in Week 7.
CENTENNIAL 40, SANTIAGO 38.

Ontario Colony at Ontario Chaffey – Senior RB Jamil Austin (5-8, 180) ran for an unbelievable 311 yards and six TDs as the Titans (6-1 overall, 2-0 Mt. Baldy League) routed Garey, 55-7, in Week 7. The Tigers (4-3, 2-0) also have a strong presence in the backfield. Senior RB Ronald Douglas (6-0, 180) ran for 268 yards and three TDs in a 35-8 win over Montclair last week.
COLONY 44, CHAFFEY 24.

Menifee Heritage at Perris Citrus Hill – The Patriots (5-2 overall, 2-1 Mountain Pass) played well last week in a 63-14 win over Rubidoux last week but lost, 20-19, at Riverside Notre Dame in Week 6. Citrus Hill dominated Notre Dame in Week 5, 52-10. Senior Deontae Cooper surpassed 6,000 rushing yards as Hawks (7-0, 4-0) remained unbeaten and untested after defeating Beaumont, 42-3, last week. Citrus Hill hasn’t scored fewer than 30 points this season.
CITRUS HILL 42, HERITAGE 16.

Hesperia at Phelan Serrano – This game is another High Desert matchup with playoff implications. The Scorpions (3-4 overall, 1-0 Mojave River) were dominated last week in losing, 21-0, to Victor Valley. The Diamondbacks (5-2, 2-0) escaped Apple Valley with a 13-7 victory in Week 7.
SERRANO 17, HESPERIA 14.

Fontana Kaiser at Fontana Summit – Phil Zelaya’s Cats (4-3 overall, 2-0 Sunkist) have already played the Sunkist League’s best, Riverside Patriot and Riverside Norte Vista, and have pounded both by a combined score of 63-14. The SkyHawks (4-3, 2-0) have dominated Sunkist League also-rans Jurupa Valley and Bloomington by a combined score of 83-0. This game should gage just how far Tony Barile’s young team has come.
KAISER 16, SUMMIT 6.

Norco at Riverside King – The Cougars (6-1 overall, 4-0 Big VIII) haven’t met a shootout they haven’t yet won. Senior RB Deontae Lewis (5-0, 194) ran for four TDs in last week’s 44-39 victory over Corona Santiago. Senior RB Todd Handley (5-9, 175) didn’t break off the huge play but he did have a 40-yard TD reception and ran for 88 yards on 19 carries as the Wolves (3-4, 2-2) defeated Corona, 15-7, in Week 7.
NORCO 38, KING 22.

Riverside Poly vs. Riverside North – Senior QB Matt Okey (5-9, 185) passed for 115 yards and ran for a TD but the Bears (3-4 overall, 1-3 Big VIII) lost, 46-10, to Eastvale Roosevelt last week. Poly has lost two consecutive since defeating Corona, 32-27, in Week 6. Senior RB Sadale Foster (5-8, 175) ran for 177 yards and a TD but the Huskies (3-4, 0-4) continue to struggle, losing, 52-20, to Corona Centennial in Week 7. Senior RB E.J. Schexnayder (6-1, 215) is expected to return this week from after sustaining a pulled hamstring in Week 5.
NORTH 28, POLY 24.

Rancho Cucamonga at Rancho Cucamonga Alta Loma – The Cougars (6-1 overall, 1-1 Baseline) are coming off their first loss in more than two seasons. How will senior QB Greg Watson (6-0, 185) respond? The Braves (0-7, 0-2) have no where to go but up so a win here over a potentially shell-shocked RC team could do wonders.
RANCHO CUCAMONGA 55, ALTA LOMA 14.

Redlands at Fontana Miller – The Terriers (6-1 overall, 4-0 Citrus Belt) haven’t lost since Week 0. Senior RB Cameron Villalobos (6-1, 185) ran for 131 yards and five TDs in a 35-13 victory over Yucaipa in Week 7. Senior QB Juan Flores (5-9, 175) completed 14 of 21 pass attempts for 239 yards and three TDs as the Rebels (4-3, 4-0) defeated Rialto Carter, 32-10, last week.
REDLANDS 48, MILLER 43.

Eastvale Roosevelt at Corona – Senior Harold Mobley (6-5, 240) completed 8 of 13 pass attempts for 213 yards and four TDs and also ran for 81 yards and two more TDs as the Mustangs (5-2 overall, 2-2 Big VIII) routed Riverside Poly in Week 7. The Panthers (2-5, 1-3) can’t but a victory. Their three Big VIII loses have come by a combined total of 20 points.
ROOSEVELT 30, CORONA 23.

Temecula Valley at Vista Murrieta – The Golden Bears (1-6 overall, 0-2 Southwest) are looking at their fourth consecutive loss after starting the season just 1-3. Senior RB Ben Johnson (6-2, 218) had 128 rushing yards in last week’s 55-7 loss to Murrieta Valley. Junior QB Derrick Brown (5-10, 175) accounted for 190 yards of offense (92 pass, 98 rush) as the Mustangs (7-0, 3-0) took care of Temecula Chaparral, 32-13, in Week 7 to remain unbeaten.
VISTA MURRIETA 52, TEMECULA VALLEY 7.

Moreno Valley Vista del Lago at Moreno Valley Rancho Verde – The father-son combination of coach Ken Hedlund and junior QB Trent Hedlund (6-3, 195) has struggled lately as the Ravens (3-4 overall, 1-3 Inland Valley) have lost two consecutive after starting the season 4-1. The Mustangs (7-0, 4-0) are an offensive juggernaut, having already scored 355 points this season.
RANCHO VERDE 68, VISTA del LAGO 12.

LAST WEEK: 13-2. SEASON:54-21.
