Four schools near Fontana High School went on lockdown Friday after a riot broke out at the high school. Students said the brawl began at lunch after someone pulled a fire alarm, sending hundreds of students into an open quad. Black and Latino students shouted racial slurs at one another and exchanged blows, students said. Officers from city and county agencies -- some in protective helmets wielding beanbag shotguns -- helped school police break up the fights over the course of two hours.

The kickers in the Big Five Conference quarterfinal game Friday night at Fontana High School probably would have stood out, anyway, what with almost everyone else on the field wearing uniforms of mud. But Adam Scolaro made sure that wasn't the only recognition he would get. The sophomore kicked a 22-yard field goal with nine minutes left, and that proved to be the difference as Long Beach Poly held on to beat Fontana, 10-9, and advance to the semifinals.

Fontana High School advanced to the Big Five Conference semifinals with a 17-14 victory over Los Angeles Loyola, due in large part to 126 yards by running back Keith Washington, a hard-hitting defense, a punt that wasn't and a punt that was. A 39-yard chunk of Washington's yardage total came with 7:39 to play on a touchdown run off a reverse, which gave the Steelers a 17-7 lead.

Fontana High School, the defending Big 5 Conference football champion, wasn't supposed to be this good in 1988. With 18 of Fontana's 22 starters last season graduating after playing on 2 consecutive league championship teams, surely the other Citrus Belt League teams could look forward to a short reprieve. But Fontana replaced those 18 starters with 18 guys who have been waiting for their chance to play the past 2 years. And play they have--Fontana is undefeated at 4-0.
