1. After an upset-filled weekend in the Big VIII League, only two of the eight teams remain unbeaten in league play. Corona Centennial and Corona are each 2-0, followed by Norco, Eastvale Roosevelt, Corona Santiago and Riverside King at 1-1. With only four teams receiving automatic qualifying berths into the Inland Division playoffs, the four teams tied for third are quickly facing must-win situations this week. The same goes for the eight-team San Andreas League, which is part of the Central Division. Colton and San Bernardino Cajon are 2-0, followed by four teams at 1-1.

2. Payback was the theme in the Mt. Baldy League. Ontario ended a six-game losing streak against host Ontario Chaffey with a resounding 38-14 victory Thursday night in what is dubbed the annual Cat Bowl. Joseph Davis returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown and later caught a 72-yard scoring pass to lead the way for Ontario. The following night, Montclair ended a three-game losing streak to Chino Don Lugo with a 17-13 victory at Don Lugo.

3. Defensive effort of the week goes to Menifee Paloma Valley, which limited high-scoring Bloomington to just 151 total yards in a 38-14 victory Friday night at Bloomington, including only eight yards in the second half. The Bruins came in averaging 266 yards and 30 points a game. Fahad Al-waiely, a 5-foot-6, 190-pound linebacker, led Paloma Valley with 11 tackles and linebacker Caleb Ennis had seven tackles and 1 sacks.
