• Dec. 15, 2010 — The Crescenta Valley and South Pasadena girls' water polo teams stir up a brewing rivalry with another down-to-the-wire battle. The result is about the same as it was three days earlier, as the Falcons defeat the Tigers, 9-8. Fraisse scores on a mid-range shot with 44 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, her second goal of the game, to break a tie and deliver the Falcons their eighth straight win to begin the season. Hovanesian also has two goals in the match.
The Tigers stuck to the Falcons the entire match, from a 1-1 score at the end of the first quarter, to a 4-4 deadlock at halftime. CV has a little separation, up 6-5, going into the fourth quarter before South Pasadena tied it up once again inside the final minute.
"It's always fun to play [South Pasadena]," Crescenta Valley Coach Pete Loporchio said. "It's a good, intense, friendly rivalry."
