Lobos had first ‘home’ game

When Los Amigos High School launched its football program, Richard Nixon was president. Eight chief executives later, the Lobos had their first “home” game.

As part of the Garden Grove Unified School District’s program to respond to late starting times for classes, all of the comprehensive high schools now have athletic facilities illuminated at night.

Los Amigos has always played its home football games at Garden Grove High’s field, now Monsoor Stadium. Last week the Lobos made history with their first true home game, playing Viewpoint High of Calabasas at the orange-and-black campus. The home team lost, but it must be nice to not have to travel across two other cities to be the host.

OUTNUMBERED: If you’ve futilely searched the sports pages or the internet for the results of the Orange vs. Saddleback football game, that’s because the game wasn’t played.

Saddleback had to forfeit the game because of lack of players to suit up, so it goes in the record books as a 2-0 victory for Orange.

ALMOST TO THE STARTING GATE: For most of our locals with six-team leagues, this is the last weekend for pre-league games. For teams of four – such as the Big 4 and the Pac 4, there’s still a couple of more weeks to go.

THE LINEUP: Here is the schedule of games for this coming week for our local teams. Most games are scheduled at 7 p.m.. but – as always – days, times, locations etc. are subject to change.
