Walnut takes on Rowland in the Hacienda

with one comment

The Walnut Mustangs didn’t have a good outing last week against Bonita. In fact, the Mustangs were routed by the Bearcats 44-14 last week as Walnut quarterbacks were intercepted 4 times and the Bearcats also blocked 3 kicks en route to a lopsided win.

The Mustangs are now 3-4 overall and 1-3 league but they have a chance tonight at home to atone with a victory over league rivals Rowland.

The Raiders are 4-4 overall and also 1-3 in league, but they didn’t look impressive themselves in a 46-33 loss to Diamond Bar last week. It looked like the Brahmas were headed to another loss, but the Raiders let the game slip way after being up 33-17 with 9:25 to play.

Now both teams square off in what should be an interesting match-up.

The Mustangs are led on the ground by Devin Brown who is averaging 28.3 yards per carry. The Walnut passing attack is spearheaded by Brandon Roach, who has passed for an average of more than 200 yards per game, has a quarterback rating of 77 and has passed for eight touchdowns.

Rowland’s main weapons are Michael Ball and Ervin Crawford, averaging more than 200 yards and just under 100 yards respectively.

Tribune Prep Sports Editor Fred Robledo has picked Walnut, while Steve Ramirez is picking Rowland.
