INLAND DIVISION
BASELINE LEAGUE
No. 9 Rancho Cucamonga (+9) at Glendora — Defense is going to win games for the Cougars (5-2), the they got back on track with a 32-6 win over Etiwanda last week. Tartans (3-4) not very good, but host game at Citrus College.

No. 2 Upland (+17) at Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos — Nate Romine is the man of the moment at The ‘U’. He’s so good right now, he’s better than The Highlander movies, all of them. And they’re awesome. Grizzlies (4-3) can save themselves a lot of trouble with win.

BIG VIII LEAGUE
Corona (-14) at Corona Santiago — Panthers (2-5) stumbled out of a potential playoff spot with a loss to Riverside King, and must now win out. Sharks (5-2) scoring points so long as Michael Darr is under center, mustn’t drop ball here though (four turovers over 1st quarter vs. Roosevelt).

Riverside King (-24) at No. 3 Corona Centennial — Wolves (3-3) playing insired ball, and remain stout up front. Might move the ball but defensively? It’s always better to be lucky than good, but the Huskies (6-1) don’t seen to have that problem — they’re both.

Norco (+6) at Eastvale Roosevelt — Cougars (3-4) came out on wrong end of 38-37 thriller vs. Corona Centennial in Week 7, have now lost three straight. Roosevelt (3-4) didn’t have the stamina to keep up with Corona Santiago, but has some quality pieces.

CITRUS BELT LEAGUE
Redlands (EVEN) at No. 10 Redlands East Valley — All news here is centered around the fact the USC-bound DE Kylie Fitts will not be playing in this game — or the rest of the season after sustaining a severly-broken wrist. REV (3-3) may rally, but won’t be the same. Terriers (6-1) can take control of league title hopes with big win.

Menifee Paloma Valley at No. 4 Menifee Heritage
— One of the newer intra-city rivalries, this year’s rendition should feature plenty of offensive fireworks. Wildcats (6-1) walloped Perris in Week 7. Patriots (6-1) have won three consecutive.

SUNKIST LEAGUE
Grand Terrace (-28) at Fontana Summit — Newly-minted Titans (1-6) are taking a pounding, week-in, week-out. SkyHawks (6-1) determined to make every game count, and could post back-to-back shutouts for the first time this season.
