Moors, Spartans To Battle For Almont Supremacy

  • By David Armenta
ALHAMBRA - 10/20/2010 - In a quest for the Almont League title, the Alhambra High football team will try to take down powerhouse Schurr High this Friday night at 7 p.m. at Moor Field.

Both teams are unbeaten in league play and know that this game is a big task for one another as both are so evenly lined up against one another.

"I think we are pretty well matched up front, but one thing that they have is Aaron Cantu who is a top tier quarterback who can put the ball wherever he wants," Alhambra coach Lou Torres said.

The Moors have faced a similar quarterback this season when they played South Pasadena's Conor Bednarski, who was shut down by the Moor pass rush.

The Tigers had no answer for the Moors and that is what Torres is hoping to do against Cantu as well.

"We game-planned well around Bednarski and we will have a similar game plan against the Spartans too, but we expect Cantu to hurt us, but we just are trying to prevent him from hurting us a lot," Torres said. "And offensively, we are just trying to keep their offense off the field as much as we can."

The Spartans will try to stop the Moors multi-dimensional Wing-T offense and believe that they have a good game plan developed to slow the offense down.

"We are a little more experience in terms of what we have seen in that particular offense over the course of a year and we have a better idea of what's going on with that," Schurr coach Ben Negrete said.

Both teams will be fired up to go at one another in this upcoming game of the week.

"We have marked Schurr game down since the beginning of the season and if we beat them that will be our highlight and we have a great coaching staff and we will have no doubt going against them," Moors senior cornerback Luis Herrera said.
