SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — It seemed the La Cañada High girls' lacrosse team was destined to win its first game of the season Tuesday.
That was bad news for a short-handed Glendale squad, which played host to the Spartans in a Prep League game that eventually saw an early four-goal lead evaporate, as La Cañada pulled out an 11-10 overtime victory.
"It feels so good [to get the win], now we know we can do it," said first-year La Cañada Coach Kyle Smith, whose team improved to 1-6, 1-2 in league. "We have played teams that aren't as strong as Glendale, so we know if we can hang with them then we can hang with the other teams."
Glendale Coach Joe Campbell was down four starters Tuesday, but gave credit to an improved La Cañada team.
"[The Spartans] are completely improved over where they were and that was a big thing [in the game]," said Campbell, whose team defeated La Cañada, 6-4, on Feb. 29. "They have gotten so much better."
