This was a close and exciting game throughout the evening between two 3-1 teams fighting for first place in the CIF standings. Bonita came out ready to play and made the Saints pay for two first half fumbles leading to a 14-7 score in favor of the Bearcats going into halftime. San Dimas was not about to give up easily though. They came out and scored a 40 yard rushing touchdown with over nine minutes left in the third quarter evening up the score at 14 each. Great American Rivalry Series MVP Angel Verdugo wanted this win though; after scoring two big rushing touchdowns in the first half he finished the game off with a six yard touchdown run to seal the game. The game ended with a score of 23-14 with MVP Angel Verdugo rushing for 165 yards and three touchdowns.
