Brea Olinda overtakes Diamond Bar

DIAMOND BAR – It’s not typical to see three penalties during a crucial drive late in the game.

Brea Olinda found a way to overcome that obstacle Friday night, sealing its first victory of the season after Nick Drury hit David Morris on a 21-yard pass with 7:29 remaining to defeat Diamond Bar 23-20 in nonleague action at Diamond Bar High.

Zach Arnold’s recovery of a mishandled punt return at the Brahmas’ 42-yard-line with 11:04 left played an important role in setting up the deciding score. Also important was Morris’ 37-yard reception on 3rd and 19 from the Diamond Bar 49.

Drury also went to Morris late in the third on a 10-yard pass, which gave the Wildcats (1-2) a 16-13 advantage.

Drury completed 5 of 12 passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns and Morris had three catches for 68 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Antonio Hull gave the Brahmas (2-2) a 20-16 lead with 1:01 to play in the third on his 51-yard run to follow Dimaggio Rico’s 44-yard kickoff return.

Hull ran for 139 on 12 carries with three touchdowns.

Noah Rivera’s 52-yard kickoff return set up the Wildcats’ first touchdown. Three runs from Billy Hanley ended with a 31-yard carry to cut the deficit to 7-6. Hanley finished with 37 rushes for 173 yards.

Brea Olinda has now defeated Diamond Bar in three of the last four meetings and will continue its nonleague schedule against Foothill at Tustin High School on Sept. 25.

Valencia defense shuts out Brea Olinda


BREA – Valencia’s offense was far from perfect. But the Tigers’ defense – for the second game in a row – was everything it needed to be.

Despite a handful of Valencia turnovers, that defense paved the way for the Tigers’ 21-0 nonleague shutout over Brea Olinda on Friday night at Brea Olinda High.

Valencia (2-0) has yet to allow a touchdown this season.

“Defense played well, they made plays when they had to,” Valencia coach Mike Marrujo said. “The way our defense has been playing, three points (allowed) in two games, we’ll take that.”

The Tigers started their second drive of the game from the Wildcats’ 45-yard line. Five plays later, they had the game’s first score – all the offense they’d need – on Pat Godoy’s 36-yard scramble down the left sideline.

Brea Olinda (0-2) answered with a seven-play drive to Valencia’s 14-yard line after a 39-yard run by Billy Hanley. Then it got sloppy.

Three consecutive fumbles followed – each resulting in a change of possession – and the Tigers ended up with the ball.

“We’ve got to stop our little blunders,” Brea coach Robb Perrance said. “This team’s got a lot of fight. They’re battlers.”

Valencia junior backup quarterback Tyler Switzer – who entered the game after a big hit hobbled Godoy midway through the second quarter – completed eight of 14 passes for 140 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

On his second drive, he arced a 24-yard pass to the back of the end zone that found a diving Jake Watkins. The score gave Valencia a 14-0 lead with a minute remaining in the second quarter.

Valencia added a third score in the fourth quarter on Switzer’s second touchdown pass of the night, a 46-yarder that deflected off a Brea defender to receiver Jackson Mirth, who trotted into the end zone.

Valencia’s Will Van Dam rushed for 92 yards on 17 carries.

Hanley again provided the bulk of Brea Olinda’s offense, rushing for 90 yards on 14 carries. The Wildcats will look for their first win against Diamond Bar next week.

Valencia will test its defense against El Dorado in Week 3.

“We have to clean it up,” Marrujo said. “We were fortunate to get out of here with a win.”

Sonora survives to beat Brea Olinda

OC Register

LA HABRA – If Hollywood scripted a film about a high school football rivalry, it would have played out exactly like the nonleague contest between Brea Olinda and host Sonora on Friday at La Habra High.

The decades-old rivalry featured huge momentum swings and came down to a 34-yard field-goal try by the Wildcats with just over a minute remaining.

Jason Clayton broke through and blocked the attempt to preserve a 29-28 victory for Sonora.

The game was a mirror image of last year’s matchup in which Sonora (2-0) came up short after failing to convert a two-point conversion late in the game.

“I was proud of our kids,” Sonora coach Paul Chiotti said. “In the second half, things weren’t going right for us offensively and defensively and when they needed to, they stepped up and made a play.”

The Raiders dominated early and took a 21-7 lead into the half.

But the Wildcats (0-1) stormed back with three consecutive touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter, to take a 28-21 lead with 3:20 remaining.

The Raiders started the ensuing drive on their own 35-yard line and moved quickly to the 50 after a personal foul on the Wildcats.

Another 15-yard penalty on Brea Olinda later in the drive gave Sonora a first-and-goal from the 10.

Then Jacob Fimbres, who finished with 177 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries, ran up the middle for a 10-yard touchdown.

Fimbres then ran in the two-point conversion to give Sonora a 29-28 lead with 2:26 left.

Brea Olinda drove from its 44 to the Sonora 17 when Clayton blocked Matteo Miralaie’s field goal attempt.

After being held to minimal yards in the first half, Brea Olinda’sBilly Hanley finished with 160 yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries.

Sonora quarterback Cole McDonald completed 11 of 22 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown.
