Prep games, Friday schedule
Arrowhead Christian (2-4, 0-1) at Upland Western Christian (4-2, 1-0), 7 p.m.: The Lancers have turned to freshman Haidyn Singson as their QB, 8-of-9 last week in a narrow win over Desert Christian while occasional QB Jason Doolittle is catching passes at a 16 ½-yard clip or running at a 7.8-yards per carry average. Be wary of S Josiah Baldivia who has 4 interceptions.
Cajon (4-2, 1-0) vs. Redlands East Valley (0-6, 0-1) at Citrus Valley, 7 p.m.: Unless the impossible happens, like a 4-game winning streak starting this week, the Wildcats are already out of CIF playoff contention. In at QB for Cajon last week was last year’s Citrus Valley QB, who threw for 224 yards in a win over Rialto Carter. REV, however, showed signs of life against a spirited Redlands team, its QB, Jeramiah Donahue, on the mark with several passes that were either missed or dropped.
Citrus Valley (6-0, 1-0) at Redlands (2-4, 1-0), 7 p.m.: Until the Terriers can protect up front -- their QB Trent Young was chased by Redlands East Valley defenders last week -- the Blackhawks might be in line to end this game with another running clock. Wheatley’s on fire, looking to add more TD strikes to his current season total, which is 30. Blackhawks’ fortunes are rising even higher off their highly-tuned offense and an attacking defense led by Jacob Moi (47 total tackles), Steven Pollard (34 tackles, 2 ½ sacks) and Alexander Toialoa (44 hits) with Scott (3 interceptions). Wheatley has targeted eight different receivers, topped by Scott’s 9, for TDs.
College schedule, Saturday’s game
University of Redlands (4-0, 1-0 SCIAC) at Chapman University-Orange (3-0, 1-0 SCIAC): This is a showdown game, and it won’t be the last for Redlands as long as Claremont-Mudd and Cal Lutheran are in the SCIAC. A battle of unbeaten teams counting on remaining that way in chasing down an SCIAC championship and, with it, an automatic NCAA playoff berth. Count on seeing a lot of players carry the ball for the Panthers, coming off a formidable 36-6 win over Whittier last Saturday. Freshman RB Marcos Reyes scored three times. Chapman defenders pulled off four QB sacks and two interceptions.
