Prep Preview: Etiwanda at Centennial

I’m covering the Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda-Corona Centennial varsity football game tonight for The Press-Enterprise and HSGametime.pe.com. The best part of this assignment are the guys who work the chains for Centennial. Duane, Bob and Co. run a tight game.

THE LOW DOWN:
This game features a coaching matchup that would have set the blog-o-shere on fire if this was 2009. But it’s not. And although much has changed, the fact remains that Logan v. Leach still has at least a little cache.

Etiwanda (2-2 overall) is now coached by Tommy Leach, who was an assistant at Norco the last two seasons following acrimonious departure from Temecula Chaparral in 2010. Leach and the Eagles nipped Eastvale Roosevelt, 22-21, in Week 4 to get to .500 vs. a brutal non-league schedule (Summit, Miller, Norco, Roosevelt, Centennial) the culminates tonight. WR Jordan Villamin leads the team with 24 points. He’s scored four TDs, and has a team-leading 15 receptions for 224 yards.

Centennial (3-1 overall), ranked No. 3 in the most recent FOMB Inland Area Prep Football Top 10, is coming off a 45-24 victory on the road at Carson. QB Robert Webber had been playing well as the Huskies, behind their beefy offensive line, average nearly 500 yards per game. Webber has completed 58 of 92 pass attempts (63 percent) and has a flawless 7:0 TD-to-INT ratio. HB Austin Renken has the ability to break loose for a score at any time, and is averaging 142 rushing yards per game.

THE KEY PLAYERS:
Etiwanda — QB: Darius Robinson, Sr. (6-foot-2, 180 pounds); Darryn Ratlif, Jr. (6-2, 180); RB: Charles Tisdale, Sr. (6-foot, 202); WR: Jordan Villamin, Sr. (6-4, 195); Kevin Connor, Sr. (6-2, 175); Dezmund Petigrew, Sr. (6-3, 180); LB: Austin Alexander, Sr. (6-1, 200); Trevon Mosley, Sr. (6-2, 205).

Centennial — QB: Robert Webber, Jr. (5-foot-10, 170 pounds); RB: Tre Watson, Jr. (5-10, 190); WR: Chase Krivishae, Sr. (5-9, 165); Ryan Pascarella, Sr. (6-2, 190); LB: Anthony Yim, Sr. (5-10, 210); OL: Cameron Hunt, Sr. (6-4, 285); Anthony Juarez, Sr. (6-3, 310); DL: Garrett Hughes, Sr. (6-2, 250); K: Rigo Luna, Sr. (5-10, 180).

THE DIFFERENCE:
Centennial will exploit all the holes in Etiwanda defense, which is allowing nearly 30 points per game. Expect Webber to continue his torrid run, and to perhaps have his best game thus far.
THE FINAL SCORE: Centennial 45, Etiwanda 17
