Whittier Christian (12-1) vs. Monrovia (11-2) at Arcadia HS, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
Analysis: If you have a good passing game at any level of high school football, it is an advantage. At this level, which used to be called Division XI of the CIF-Southern Section’s 13 11-man football divisions, it is a large advantage.
Whittier Christian Stephen Anderson has had a great year, and is Orange County’s leader in passing yardage. Monrovia went into the playoffs as the division’s second-seeded team, and has played like with three one-sided playoff victories. But Monrovia has not faced a passing like the one Whittier Christian will bring to this game.
Prediction: Whittier Christian 21, Monrovia 14
