Orange 46 - Caruthers 43

Postby John Q. Public » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:10 pm

138 active threads about that awful Mater Dei stealing all the talent from other schools but one of them wins the Regional Championship (in OT) and I'm the only one who notices. Buncha hypocrites.

Congratulations Lancers!

Katella and El Modena playing tomorrow if there are any actual home-grown high school football fans here.

This should be the feel good story of the year. From 0-10 three years ago to this is incredible. The plaza in downtown had two thousand supporters after the game in celebration last week.

This is what hsfb is supposed to be about!

Agree, outsider! I'm an El Mo dad, but a lot of people from all the schools in Orange were there to support the Panthers last night. They haven't won CIF since 1929, and seeing community people in their 90s there last night was very special. Coach Pedroza is doing great things with very few resources at OHS.

I don't usually post on message boards, but I read this one for fun. Not to hijack the private v. public debate, but just wanted to encourage ALL fans to come out tonight to our game against Steele Canyon at 6 PM at Fred Kelly Stadium. Only two high school games in OC tonight, and our boys are ready!

I'm also asking because a lot of our kids can't afford the ring. With the extra shirts and patches we're buying, it's not in the booster budget either. If you buy a game program tonight or participate in the 50/50 drawing, money will go to the ring fund.

I love any HS football, but it is really cool to see kids who grew up playing local sports together, doing it on the high school field together. I think it makes the success on the field sweeter because we've known these kids since they were little.

Congrats to everyone still playing, and hope to see you tonight at Fred Kelly!

Welcome and thanks for the post, EM Dad. That really is what high school sports is supposed to be about. Is there a way that those of us who can't attend can contribute? It'll be great to see a repeat of last night's celebration tonight.

Really good story, especially since they’re all homegrown talent...awesome for the five seniors who transferred in to come “home” and it only took Collins 4 years and 3 schools to find “home”.

Yes, and thank you for considering it. There's a Championship Ring Fund link, as well as a general Donate link on our website, www.elmodenafootball.com. The regular donate link has a much smaller percentage processing fee.

Since I know they're in the same boat as us, here is Orange football's ring fund link: https://www.gofundme.com/rings-for-champions.

Admins, thank you for permitting these links. PM me if there are any concerns about the validity of these.

Yes 2 is a transfer. QB is a transfer. DE is a transfer.

Anyone can go onto CIF website and look at any schools transfers. I just checked and Orange is loaded with them.

Very entertaining game last night. I couldn't help but rooti for Curuthers a true feel good story. The city of Caruthers has a population of less than 2500. They have 600 students. Orange has almost more students than the city of Caruthers. Great loyal fans made the 5 1/2 hour drive on a Friday night. Kudos to them

Coach Pedroza, he has taken Orange HS way out of mediocrity since Coach Gibson left

Congratulations to Orange. It always makes me smile when long suffering fans finally have their day. I'm a Chicago Cubs fan, so I know how it feels.

Also hope to see El Modena, with Matt Mitchell win it all.

Rooting for the Katella Knights to win it all also.
Well, obviously we have giant butterflies in CA. They's climbin' in your windows, They's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to steal 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your stars, and hide your coaches cause they're grabin' everybody out here.

Orange gets a home game for state finals against Strathmore HS. Strathmore has 294 students. Orange beat Silver Valley 386 students then Caruthers 575 students. Is this really fair? That means if 50% of Strathmore is male that is only 147 possible males in the entire school to field a football team.

El Modena lost tonight, in a close one. The fault lies at the feet of JQP who shamed us into jinxing you.

Congratulations to Katella, who somehow managed to win despite the jinx.

Just kidding. Great season for both teams. Kudos.

Sorry, El Mo. :( Either way it was a year to be proud of.

Same for Orange and Katella and all of their opponents.
