The three-peat is complete.
Overcoming a 0-7 halftime deficit, the Monrovia High School Wildcats went on to win in convincing fashion Friday night, taking down Paraclete 23-7. The victory gives the Wildcats their third consecutive CIF-SS Mid-Valley Division Championship.
"How 'bout them Wildcats," Coach Ryan Maddox said after being presented with the division championship plaque.
The game turned around on a spectacular 85-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Blake Heyworth to receiver Anthony Craft to begin the second half. The staunch 'Cats defense didn't allow Paraclete to score again as the offense scored two more rushing touchdowns and a field goal on the way to winning.
