With two weeks to get ready for Angelus League play since its last game, Bishop Montgomery (3-1) has had that much more time to worry about unbeaten Bishop Amat (5-0), which is worth worrying about. Amat isn't fancy but it isn't fun, either. Amat has run up 165 points--emphasis on run--while allowing 34. Junior tailback Eric Bieniemy has rushed for 776 yards and 9 touchdowns, and while he was taking it easy on a sore leg last week backfield mate Lee Barrett had 191 yards. Rick Carter is the quarterback. Linebacker Ramon Diaz leads the rugged defense. Montgomery, which upset Amat last year, also likes to establish the run though it doesn't have a back in Bieniemy's class. Linebacker Ken Sale keys a solid Knight defense.
7:30 p.m. Friday at Bishop Montgomery, Torrance.
West Torrance vs. South Torrance
South (4-1 overall, 1-1 in Bay League), which gave Santa Monica a tough contest last week, needs to win to pull even with West, which is 2-0 in league but only 3-2 overall. West has won when it has scored at least two touchdowns but has been the loser against tougher defensive teams. South fits that bill, generally winning low-scoring games. The Spartans have allowed only 41 points in five games. Its loss to Santa Monica was 13-10. Ken Semko directs the South offense despite a foot injury. Running back Kevin Maher is back from a leg injury. His fill-in, Brad Dodge, who picked up more than 100 yards, moves back to wide receiver.
