An unfortunate end for sure, the Crescenta Valley boys? volleyball team, chock full of seniors, lost their final game of the season at home to Agoura, 27-29, 25-14, 25-18, 25-19, on Friday in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs ?I can?t explain it, other than we didn?t bring our ?A? game to the court,? said senior co-captain Ryan Peters. ?It might have been the pressure, but I can?t explain it.?

Erik Boal and Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- o7 Odds and ends from the local high school girls' water polo scene:f7 No. 2 vs No. 2, part II: Despite it being scheduled on a Friday afternoon, a 40-minute drive north on the Ventura Freeway might be well worth the trip for Crescenta Valley High fans. Because with no disrespect intended toward Glendale -- CV's opponent at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday -- or any of the other Pacific League teams, the Falcons' journey to Agoura is their most important match between now and when the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs begin Feb. 14. Peter Kim purposely scheduled Agoura -- ranked No. 2 in Division II -- so late in the season to give his squad, winners of nine straight by a 129-30 margin, a playoff-caliber tuneup before the postseason rolled around.

LA CRESCENTA — A few moments after the season ended for the Crescenta Valley High boys’ volleyball team, Ryan Peters tried to pinpoint what happened. The senior outside hitter couldn’t isolate the problems. “I can’t explain it, other than we didn’t bring our ‘A’ game to the court,” said Peters, whose team was handed a 27-29, 25-14, 25-18, 25-19 loss by visiting Agoura on Friday night in a CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match.

BURBANK — A little brand of physical play might not hurt after all. It might have be the one thing lacking in the repertoire of the Renaissance Academy boys’ basketball team. Perhaps that isn’t the case any longer. Renaissance Academy advanced to the championship game of the 39th annual Bulldog Tip-Off Classic on Friday night with a hard-fought 66-55 semifinal victory against Agoura at Burbank High. Renaissance Academy (3-0) will meet Burbank (3-0) in the tournament’s title contest at 6 p.m. today at the same venue.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE ? A slow start made for a long afternoon of trying to play catch up for the members of the Flintridge Prep girls? basketball squad. It?s a situation the Rebels didn?t want to have to endure, but they had no choice after struggling throughout the first quarter against a sharp opponent. Flintridge Prep saw its struggles continue Saturday afternoon during a 65-48 loss to Agoura in a pool-play game of the second annual La Cañada High New Year?s Ball Tournament.

LA CRESCENTA — A priority placed on defense helped Falcon, a summer incarnation of the Crescenta Valley High girls’ water polo team, hold off a fourth-quarter charge from Agoura and secure a 10-6 victory in the third-place game of the 2009 Falcon Water Polo Tournament on Sunday afternoon. Adrienne Ingalla, Julia Warden and Kim Fraisse all contributed fourth-quarter goals for Falcon, which held Agoura to just one goal over the first 6:20 of the last period, with Agoura’s only other goal coming on a long heave with the outcome already decided.

Pick any part of the soggy field and the members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team couldn't put anything together. The same couldn't be said for the Falcons' opponent.

Hamlet Nalbandyan BURBANK -- Glendale High girls' basketball Coach Errol Garnett joked after Thursday's pool-play game of the Burroughs Optimist Tournament that maybe his team should have gone with four players on the court, just like on Wednesday. After all, the Nitros were coming off a victory against Burroughs High in the tournament despite being one player short in the final moments of the game. But against Agoura, Glendale needed all the players it could get. The Chargers were led by Division I-prospect Jennifer Lacey and the overall athletism on Agoura was too much for Glendale to handle at Burroughs High as the Nitros fell, 50-36.

Hamlet Nalbandyan BURBANK -- The Glendale High girls' basketball team had a reputation for being a wild, out-of-control unit that went out there and made opponents run, run, run. The Nitros were still in high gear Friday in a Pool B semifinal game of the 20th annual Burroughs/Magnolia Park Omptimist Club Holiday Tournament, but they did so in a way that would have made even John Wooden proud. Glendale ran a surprisingly organized offense to beat Agoura, 62-51, at Burroughs High to advance to tonight's 7 p.m. title game against Burroughs.

Charles Rich A double dose of pain inflicted the St. Francis High boys' soccer team. It happened quickly and left St. Francis in a rut after it dropped a 1-0 decision to visiting Agoura in a pool-play match of the 11th annual Ralph Brandt Boys' Soccer Tournament. The Golden Knights (2-1) saw their bid to win the tournament for a third consecutive season vanish and lost the services of sophomore forward/midfielder Jeff Buddenbohn, who suffered a gash above his right eye early in the third quarter.

BURBANK - Two different Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball teams showed up Wednesday for their opening game of the Burroughs Magnolia Park Optimist Tournament. There was the team that dominated the first and third quarters of play. And there was the team that struggled both offensively and defensively. “We're young,” Crescenta Valley Coach Jason Perez said. “None of these kids have experience. We're just a young basketball that's inexperienced, getting used to playing varsity ball, and so we go through stretches where we play really, really well and it looks like we can score points, and then we go through stretches where we can't put the ball in the basket for our lives.

It took just two years for the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team to qualify for the postseason after becoming a CIF sanctioned team late in 2010. The Nitros didn't pick up any wins during their inaugural campaign, but that didn't serve as a setback in their second season. Glendale finished third in the Prep League and earned a spot in the postseason. Glendale saw its historic season come to a close Wednesday night with a 14-5 loss to host Agoura in a Southern Section Northern Division second-round match.

LA CRESCENTA — While the Crescenta Valley High boys’ water polo team averaged nearly 10 goals scored per match through its first four contests in the 2009 Falcon Water Polo Tournament, it was deficiencies in the offense that loomed as the main culprit in the Falcons going winless over that span. According to veteran Crescenta Valley Coach Jan Sakonju, his team’s shaky offensive execution, in part, allowed Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, La Serna, Temple City and El Segundo to get their own offenses going on the counter attack and outscore the Falcons in matches on Friday and Saturday.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — The Ralph Brandt Soccer Tournament was a successful venture for the Glendale High boys’ soccer team. But at the conclusion of the Runner-Up Championship match on Monday evening at La Cañada High, the Nitros walked off the field a dejected bunch. Taking a one-goal lead late into the second half, Glendale lost a player, lost its edge and eventually lost the match to Agoura, 2-1. “A lot of good,” was how Glendale Coach Carlos Santiesteban described his team’s time in the tournament, as the Nitros went into the Runner-Up Championship having lost once — to Royal, which played in the title match.

LA CRESCENTA — It's been considered a chief building block that can possibly lead toward a budding career. Many former star Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo players have used it to help them assess their strengths and weakness several months before the season begins. Now, the next wave of talent from Crescenta Valley will look to do the same thing. Crescenta Valley senior hole/set Bryan Redfern found out first-hand Friday afternoon. Redfern scored a match-high five goals and teammate Mason Takidin added two to spark Crescenta Valley to a 10-8 victory against the Agoura junior varsity in a pool-play bracket game of the ninth annual Falcon Classic Water Polo Tournament.
