Round-Up #5 – Week 4, [9/23/16]

ELASS Logo #2Aimages-3Mid-Season Review and Upcoming Forecast: The mid-point of the 2016 season has just about come and gone. Most of our covered teams in our Round-Up have completed their non-conference schedules except for one or two. Several have already played their first League game. Then, there’s still the obligatory “BYE” week ahead for others to rest. After that, it’ll be a mad dash to the finish line with many hopes for a playoff berth riding on the outcome of each and every game. So, we all better buckle-up and lock-in tight for what could be a very wild ending. Keep supporting your team in all of its endeavors, whether they’re on, or off the field. Our student-athletes, their Coaches, and their families will all surely be very thankful.

Last word, I’d like to ask all of our followers to share our website and its “link” with your favorite list of friends, family, alumni, and work-place associates, etc. It would greatly be appreciated. Rico Cabrera, Sr., Editor EastLASportsScene.Com 

LA-City-Section-LogoIn the L.A. City Section for Week #4, the Eastern League’s, Garfield Bulldogs were blanked by CIF/SS and Orange County powerhouse, Servite (3-2) and #15 ranked in the L.A. Times weekly Top 25 poll. Coach Hernandez will be the first to admit that the Bulldogs have earned a much deserved break after playing a brutal five game non-conference schedule. The South Gate Rams were soundly defeated by the Salesian Mustangs on their home turf and now take their BYE week off. Meanwhile, the Roosevelt Rough Riders who had the week off with their BYE, return for their final non-conference match-up of the season on Friday.  Overall RecordsSouth Gate (3-2); Garfield (2-3); and Roosevelt (0-4).

The Northern League posted a (1-1) record in Week 4 as the Wilson Mighty Mules lost their second-in-a row, this time to Northern League opponent, Lincoln. The Lincoln Tigers opened their Northern League play with a huge win over Wilson. The Tigers are eager to start their run for the league title and the playoffs similar to how they did it last season. Wilson now travels to Torres for another League encounter with a steadily improving opponent. The Torres Toros had the week off with their BYE, but return with a big Northern League match-up. Overall Records: Wilson (3-2); Torres (3-1); and Lincoln (2-3).

The Metro League’s, Mendez Jaguars, traveled to Simi Valley and lost their fourth game of non-conference battles. Overall Record: Mendez (1-4).
