In the other semifinal game St. Francis beat Bishop Amat 12-7.
Other teams included Rancho Cucamonga, Norco, Colony, Chino Hills, Corona Santiago, La Serna, Mira Costa, Rosemead, Murietta Mesa, Ayala, Monrovia, Bassett, San Gabriel, Arcadia and Crespi.
While that was happening, Tesoro's Linemen were finishing 3rd at Jesse Sapolu's "Men in the Trenches" competition. (Mater Dei took first place, and Gardena Serra took second).
Tesoro's linemen beat Corona Centennial in round 1, Orange Lutheran in the second round, and Servite in the third round. After that ? I haven't heard.
Guess thats what happens in :25 min passing league games in early spring.
La Habra played in a tough pool play, Beating Edison, losing to Bosco, Beating Serra twice, then Surprise of the tourney, taking down number 1 seed Narbonne, then Los Alamitos, Losing to MD in the finals.
Ryan Zanelli LH QB has been throwing Dimes day in and day out. He hit multiple targets taking what the defense gives him and found Clark Phillips multiple times for big TD'S. Another stand out was LH receiver "White Lightning" Kris Koontz, Zanelli found Koontz running all alone many times past many top DB'S,for TD'S. The "Z" is precise and cuts up defenses like ZORO in a sword fight. Someone is really missing out on a smart , excellent decisions, STRONG ARMED
QB! This is coming off another great performance by the Z, WINNING the Mt. San Jacinto tournament beating Eisenhower in the finals. Next up, Edison Tournament.
Bryce Young was also very good, getting rid of it very quickly and very precise as well.
Very competitve tourney, kids actually were all respectful, for the most part. The Scandrick tourney was very well ran.
I believe they beat Bosco next and then went against MD in the semis.Professor Fate wrote:Tesoro's linemen beat Corona Centennial in round 1, Orange Lutheran in the second round, and Servite in the third round. After that ? I haven't heard.
And before the Bosco apologists come at me, I’m not a MD fan. I wish you guys could beat them. Especially when they throw out there a very inexperienced and at best very mediocre QB.
To score as little as you did in that final game with the weapons you have is beyond a head scratcher. This on the heels of that embarrassing loss in the playoffs where your coaches took the blame (and rightly so).
Safe to say your current OC is no where near as good as Chad Johnson. Hoping this doesn’t turn into another debacle in the playoffs this year.
MD has always had better coaching. There were a few years that the talent level at Bosco was higher to a point that coaching didn’t matter. Last year Bosco had the better team but was taken to coaching school in the finals.TripleB wrote:QR_BBPOST It sure looks like MD has far better coaching than Bosco.

Not scoring a lot of points against MD’s defense is hardly a head scratcher.
Same thing in 2016. Md won the league game and out coached the bosco coaches. In the finals bosco repaid the favor beating the #1 team in the national 13-0 monarchs by running the ball behind Wyatt Davis for 400+ yards.
