Paloma Valley at Home in Playoffs; Heritage on Road Tonight

The Paloma Valley and Heritage high school football teams will try to continue their success in the second round of the CIF Southern Section playoffs tonight.

Paloma Valley (8-3) will play a 7 p.m. home game against Colony (7-4) High of Ontario, the No. 2 team from the Mt. Baldy League. Colony advanced to the second round with a 27-14 win over La Quinta last week.

The Wildcats stormed into the second round with a 22-3 victory over top-seeded Summit High last week. Although they finished Sunbelt League play 2-3, the Wildcats have dominated much of the opposition this year, outscoring opponents, 423-151.

Paloma's No. 1 threat on offense is running back David Solis, who has rushed for 1,580 yards and 20 touchdowns. Quarterback Brent Boehm has passed for 2,026 yards and 19 touchdowns. A solid defense is led by linebacker Richard Krottmayer and lineman Charlie Wallace.

Heritage, the Sunbelt League champion, will take a 10-1 record into tonight's 7 o'clock game against Arlington (7-4), the No. 3 team from the Inland Valley League, at Ramona High. Arlington advanced to the second round with a 29-7 victory over Chino.

Heritage advanced by defeating Palm Desert, 42-28. That game marked the return to action of running back Jamal Morrow, who rushed for 249 yards after sitting out much of the previous two games with a knee injury.
