NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Despite Pacific League play beginning weeks ago, the girls' soccer teams from Crescenta Valley High and host Hoover entered Tuesday's post-holiday break resumption of league matches with nothing but ties on their records.
The defending-champion Falcons made it clear early that trend would not continue.
Bombarding Hoover from the opening whistle with an onslaught of offense, Crescenta Valley had a three-goal lead within the first 10 minutes and didn't stop until it had its highest scoring output of the season in a 10-0 win.
"Hoover, for whatever reason, we sometimes struggle with, but we made sure that we came out hard," said Falcons Coach Jorden Schulz, whose team's scoring was led by two goals apiece from Katie Callister, Mallory Carcich and Valentina Victoria. "We got our first [league] win, so we're satisfied."
