FOOTBALL: Rancho Verde, Corona, Chino Hills, and Orange Vista reach Southwest County Semis

Rancho Verde, Corona, Chino Hills, and Orange Vista reached the semifinals of the 13th annual Southwest County Passing Tournament at Paloma Valley High School.

After a long, hot day that included a weather delay because of lightning, the tournament was called-off early following a scuffle between Corona and Hillcrest in the quarterfinals.

Orange Vista, playing with a team with no varsity experience, made a cinderella run to reach the semis after topping Ventura in the quarterfinals.

Rancho Verde outlasted Vista Murrieta in another great quarterfinal match-up.

FOOTBALL: The “Great 8 & 4 More” Rankings after Week 7


The Inland_Sports team spends countless hours (sometimes staying up all night long) in the lab crunching numbers and applying scientific equations to conclude the most accurate “Great 8 & 4 More” high school football rankings each week. Well, it’s sort of like that … so after much deliberation, here’s our “Great 8 & 4 More” after Week 7.

The only noticeable change is that REV (Redlands East Valley) climbs into our Great 8; thanks in large part to Yucaipa’s 61-60 4OT at Cajon. In a strange way, the T’birds helped REV move up – crazy, I know! The Wildcats have been solid all year long and it was probably just a matter of time until they were back in the Great 8.

Just a heads up … there’s some big games on the horizon including REV @ Cajon in Week on October 28.

The grandaddy of them all will be the Menifee Bowl as #2 Heritage hosts #5 Paloma Valley in the regular season finale. Huge rivalry game, great fans on both sides, amazing players and coaches … game of the century kinda stuff! And oh yeah, Heritage has NEVER lost a Sunbelt League game; so there’s that too.
