Brutal honesty: Rosemead is going to end Arroyo’s reign atop the league this year. The Panthers title quest will be helped tonight by South El Monte’s win over Arroyo. Then, the Panthers will beat both teams and coach Matt Koffler’s magic will lead to a City Council referendum that re-names the city ‘Koffmead.’ Montview League: PC take: There isn’t one, the league title will be decided on Nov. 4 when Gladstone plays Duarte. Brutal honesty: Gladstone’s aura cannot be underestimated. But Duarte’s as talented as any recent league champion. This is the Falcons’ year. The final playoff spot will go to Sierra Vista. San Antonio League PC take: There isn’t one, this league boils down to South Hills and West Covina. Brutal honesty: In one week, the entire area will turn its eyes to Covina District Field for the rematch of last year’s CIF-Southern Section Division VII title game between South Hills and West Covina. And in one week, we’ll know who this year’s San Antonio League champ is going to be. The league and possibly the division boils down to different breeds – Bulldogs and Huskies. West Covina would get the nod if William Wallace were healthy. South Hills would get the nod if we thought QB Kevin Mort would be allowed to open things up with a pass here and there. That might mean a playmaker, which South Hills hasn’t found yet, would be uncovered. Nogales, Walnut and Rowland will vie for a playoff berth. Rowland gets it. Sierra League PC take: There isn’t one – Chino, Damien and Glendora are the only legitimate title contenders. Brutal honesty: Chino, Damien and Glendora are the real deal. There’s a slight drop off to Chino Hills and a big drop off to Ayala and Diamond Bar. Chino remains the favorite, but Damien and Glendora played tough nonleague’s schedules with good results. The vibe here is that each of the three lose a game and split the title. Valle Vista League PC take: There isn’t one, Covina is two touchdowns (minimum) better than anybody else. Brutal honesty: The better race is for second between Baldwin Park, Northview, Pomona and San Dimas. We’ll take Northview to give Covina its most difficult game and handle business against the rest. Baldwin Park gets the final playoff spot. — Aram Tolegian can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233, or by e-mail at [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Miramonte League THE Good, The Bad and The Ugly has been scrapped this week so that we may bring you predictions for some of the local high school football leagues as the season shifts from important to very important mode. Since the truth is very difficult for some high school sports fans to handle, we’ll break it up into politically correct takes for the softies and brutal honesty for the hard liners. Pick which one fits you best and read from there. PC take: There isn’t one, Los Altos in a romp. Brutal honesty: Los Altos is two touchdowns better than Charter Oak and Charter Oak is two touchdowns better than anybody else. Don’t believe us? Ask Conquerors coach Greg Gano. We thought Wilson was a contender at the beginning of the year, but injuries have taken their toll on East Wedgeworth Drive. That means Bonita gets the final playoff spot. Mission Valley League PC take: There isn’t one, this is a three-team race between Arroyo, Rosemead and South El Monte.
