Suburban League Football Week 1 Recap; Week 2 Preview PDF Print E-mail

Suburban League Week 2:


Week 1 Review: Well, I was right on picking five of the seven winners from this past weekend’s games. I thought the Matadors would put up a terrific fight and pound the Highlanders. Oops. Well someone got pounded, and it wasn’t the Highlanders. On the other hand, everyone else got hammered in league. Bellflower is still scoreless two weeks in and no points. The Norwalk Lancers are proving to be a force as they have amassed 121 points in two games. I look for a lot of teams to get back on track this week and continue their winning ways.


Week 1 Results:

Norwalk 58 Los Amigos 6: Norwalk got its double-wing attack rolling by steam-rolling the Lobos up and down the field. They have a three headed monster on offense led by senior wingback Adrian Gonzales, junior wingback Billy Moore, and senior fullback, two-way stud, Adrian Cortez.


La Habra 54 La Mirada 13: La Mirada really never got itself on a roll and instead tried to hang on for dear life. Any ideas of them becoming an area power again, right this minute, where halted by a stingy Highlanders defense. QB Daniel Poncedeleon played as well as he could, and diminutive running back Matt Haltom ran hard; but it still was not enough. They look to rebound this week against California High School of Whittier.


Glenn 38 Pioneer 3: The Eagles ground game got rolling as TB Brandon Kelly ran through, around, and over any Titan in his way. When the dust had settled, he had 25 carries for 257 yards. They also have a versatile athlete in Junior D.J. Bernard; he scored 4 different ways. He started things off by hauling in a 60-yard TD catch, and then he picked up a blocked field goal and raced 89 yards to the house, untouched. Then he jumped a route and returned it from 38 yards out. Finally he took a handoff and scored from 28 yards out and put a move on a Titan defender that would make any Madden gamer jealous.
