Inland Empire: Five things from the weekend

September, 20, 2010
1. That blowout victory against Tustin in Week 1 is looking even more impressive for Upland. After the Highlanders took out Tustin, 42-21, on Sept. 10, the Tillers turned around and knocked off Orange County powerhouse Orange Lutheran, 46-29, on Friday night. Heading into last weekend, Orange Lutheran was ranked No. 9 by ESPNLosAngeles.com. Upland fell out of the top 25 after a so-so performance in the season-opener against A.B. Miller of Fontana. Turns out, Miller is a pretty decent team. Upland still faces its biggest tests of the nonleague schedule, this Friday at home against No. 11 Norco and Oct. 1 against No. 21 Los Angeles Loyola at L.A. Valley College in Van Nuys.

2. Chino Hills redeemed itself with an impressive 14-13 victory Friday night against visiting Tesoro of Rancho Santa Margarita. The Huskies were ranked as high as No. 4 in the Southern Section Inland Division, then lost by 12 points September 10 at Corona Santiago. Tesoro is no slouch, owning a victory over Santa Margarita this season and remaining a viable playoff contender in the powerful South Coast League. Tesoro led, 13-0, early on, went scoreless for three quarters then missed a 47-yard field-goal attempt with 24 seconds remaining. The Huskies had taken the final one-point lead after junior quarterback Andrew Chavez scored on a one-yard keeper with 1:45 remaining.
