BELLFLOWER — The emotion poured out on the Walnut sidelines after outlasting Bellflower 27-14 in Friday's CIF Southern Section Division 11 championship, giving the Mustangs their first football title in school history. Walnut lost its only other title appearance in 2002 to South Hills, and with another opportunity 20 years later, they made sure they were the ones taking pictures with the trophy afterward.
