LA CRESCENTA - What a way to start its season. After losing the first two games of its season and not even holding a lead in either one, the Crescenta Valley High girls' volleyball team staged an improbable comeback against visiting Alemany on Tuesday.

"My team got it," Falcon Coach Jen Ku Lee said. "I just have to find a way to dig it out of them every game.

In one of their biggest wins in team history, Flintridge Sacred Heart beat Alemany last Thursday, 4-3, to take a commanding lead in the Mission league. Tolog Jessica Ferri put up a fantastic effort, both in hitting and pitching. Ferri pitched all seven innings, ceding eight hits, but only one earned run. On the offensive side, Ferri went 3-for-3 with a huge home run and three RBIs. In the last four years, Alemany has absolutely dominated the Mission league and been league champs in all four years.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - The St. Francis High boys' basketball team's bid to knock off a second Mission League heavyweight in a span of three days never got out of the first quarter on Friday night. Overmatched by Alemany's offensive firepower to begin with, the Golden Knights stood little chance when the Warriors' defense took over the game early en route to a 76-45 victory. Alemany, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section 3-A, filled passing lanes, picked pockets and forced eight turnovers in the first quarter.

PASADENA — With all of his years playing and coaching baseball, St. Francis Coach Brian Esquival couldn’t have imagined what he would see unfold on Tuesday night. That’s because Esquival had never seen it occur before. And it delivered arguably the biggest break of the season at a time when the Golden Knights needed it the most. Nick Gentili scored from third on a balk in the bottom of the seventh inning after Alemany pitcher Edgar Montes dropped the ball while in motion to give St. Francis an improbable 7-6 Mission League victory at Jackie Robinson Field.

GLENDALE — The following are previews of the area’s upcoming high school football games.   To the tune of a 7-1 record, St. Francis High football Coach Jim Bonds and his Golden Knights have all along held strong to the party line of one game at a time. Alas, the Golden Knights currently find themselves preparing to face defending Mission League champion Alemany on the road Friday night at 7:30 p.m. With a share of the league title on the line and a fierce and much-ballyhooed rival awaiting, however, nothing has changed with the Golden Knights’ approach, or at least that’s what Bonds is trying to convey anyhow.

Erik Boal LOS ANGELES -- It was a rematch more than 10 months in the making, but unforunately for Melissa Siracuse, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' swim team and the entire Mission League, the long-awaited 200-yard individual medley showdown never materialized Thursday. In what was supposed to be the first meeting between Siracuse and defending league champion Leah Tourtellotte -- who defeated the Tolog senior by almost seven seconds at last year's league final -- since May, wound up being another easy victory for Siracuse, who defeated Tourtellotte's former teammate, Giannina Orozco, by almost 14 seconds.

LOS ANGELES — As close and hard-fought as it was, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team’s 90-86 defeat at the hands of defending Mission League champion Alemany at Loyola High on Thursday was a loss the Tologs could live with. “I’m thrilled [with the meet],” said first-year Tologs Coach Steve Bergen, whose team would have likely had a lead instead of a deficit entering the final event were it not for a disqualification in an earlier relay.

LA CAÑADA - It is a milestone that has been 25 years in the making. Unfortunately, that milestone will have to wait for now. When the St. Francis High soccer team faced Alemany in a Mission League opener Wednesday, coach Glen Appels was sitting at 399 career wins. A win would give the Appels his historic 400th victory, a remarkable feat for any coach. It looked as it St. Francis was going to deliver that milestone to its coach, holding a one-goal lead heading into the final minute of play.

PASADENA - Just past the halfway point of his nine-hole round, Michael Finney got things organized. Struggling in a couple of facets of his game, the St. Francis High golfer attacked a pair of par-four holes to get back on track. Finney birdied the sixth and seventh holes to earn medalist honors and lead St. Francis to a 198-216 Mission League home victory against Alemany on Monday at Brookside Golf Course No. 2. "My ball-striking wasn't too good and I couldn't make any putts early on," said Finney, a senior.

BURBANK - Even before its doubleheader as part of the Burbank Tournament, the Hoover High girls' water polo team had already removed a monkey from its collective backs. After going winless last campaign, the Tornadoes notched their first win of this season with an overtime victory over Oaks Christian on Tuesday. “Last year in 2012-13 we didn't win a game and I know a lot of the girls were disappointed by that,” Hoover Coach Kevin Witt said, “and they put in a lot of work this summer and in the preseason ... the girls are really excited to see their hard work pay off.” On Friday, Hoover added another victory by winning the front half of the doubleheader, 7-6, over Marymount to begin competition in pool play of the fifth annual Burbank tourney, meaning a second victory in the back half would make the Tornadoes the winner of the three-team Pool C. “We did a very good job in the beginning of limiting their good shots,” Witt said of his team's win over Marymount.

LA CANADA - The St. Francis High volleyball team won its first match of the young season in Friday night's home tilt with visiting Village Christian. The Golden Knights graduated five seniors from last year's squad, played without senior outside hitter Charles McCarthy in their season opener with Temple City and didn't see a balanced attack on offense against Alemany. It was in the team's home opener that everything came together in a 25-8, 21-25, 25-17, 25-16 win over the Crusaders.

LA CANADA - With his team in need of a scoring surge, the St. Francis High basketball team found Markar Agakanian to be the perfect target. Agakanian proved he could shoulder the scoring load and help the Golden Knights get back into the thick of things in the arduous Mission League. Doing it against the defending CIF Division III state champion made it all that much more impressive and rewarding for the sophomore guard. Agakanian collected eight of his 10 points in the fourth quarter to help host St. Francis record a 48-46 league victory against Alemany on Wednesday night.
