For the second season in a row, the Mayfair Monsoons and La Mirada Matadors will face off in final game of Suburban League action with the championship on the line. This year, the Monsoons will be hoping to reverse last year’s outcome – a 52-7 loss, with a constantly improving defense and rushing attack.
It will not be easy for the Monsoons as the Matadors (7-2, 5-0) come into the game as defending CIF-SS Southeast and CIF State Division III-AA Champions. Although they lost several key players from last year, the Matadors have played well this season, picking up impressive wins over Orange Lutheran and San Clemente and rolling through the Suburban League. Their only two losses are to the state’s two top ranked teams in Mater Dei and St. John Bosco (maxpreps.com). As a result, the Matadors are ranked 11th in the state of California this season by maxpreps.
The Monsoons come into the game having won 5 straight behind a rejuvenated rushing attack and strong defensive efforts. Traveon Anderson and Abrie Sumlin have led the Monsoons to 26 rushing touchdowns and 223 rushing yards/game while Chris Adimora has played well on defense, including a 3 interception performance last week against Glenn, anchoring a defense that has only allowed 11 points per game in the last 5 games.
The game will be played at 7 pm on Friday, November 4, at Ron Yary stadium.
