BURBANK — After three quarters of even play, Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League girls' water polo match between Crescenta Valley High and host Glendale was still anybody's game.
But the fourth quarter belonged to the Falcons, as does sole possession of first place in league after their 11-7 win at Burroughs High, in which Crescenta Valley scored the last four goals of the match and kept the Nitros off the scoreboard for nearly the final 10 minutes.
"In the fourth quarter, I think we relaxed more," said Crescenta Valley's Kim Fraisse, who led the team with four goals, including one in the decisive fourth-quarter run. "At first, we were just getting nervous because it was a really close game and we were adjusting to that. When we started relaxing and running [our offense] everything just came out better."
