ARCADIA — With two games remaining in the regular season and in the hunt to qualify for the playoffs, Glendale High softball Coach Christine Paknik offered a suggestion concerning her team. “We have to go back and work on the basics,” Paknik said shortly after Glendale suffered an 8-1 loss Thursday afternoon to host Arcadia in a Pacific League contest. “Then we are going to have to stick to the basics and attack. “We can either kick ourselves or learn from it.” Arcadia (8-11, 6-6 in league)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — One rally from down two runs just wouldn’t be enough for the Glendale High softball team to defeat Arcadia on Thursday. In order to get their 10-8 Pacific League win over the Apaches, the Nitros would have to do it twice. The second comeback was final and the more impressive of the two, as Glendale strung together seven consecutive hits for five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, highlighted by Amber Veliz’s go-ahead two-run triple. “I wanted to win so bad,” said Veliz, who went three for four at the plate with two triples, three runs batted in and three runs.

BOYS' WATER POLO Hoover 12, Arcadia 11 : Hakop Baghumian finished with five goals to lead visiting Hoover to a Pacific League-opening win Tuesday. Ryan Moguel finished with three goals and Alek Keshishyan added two to help Hoover improve to 10-5. South Pasadena 11, Flintridge Prep 6 : It was an exciting day for the Rebels, who hosted South Pasadena Tuesday. Flintridge Prep's junior transfer from Loyola High Johnny Treinen was eligible to play in his first match and Prep wanted revenge for a one-goal loss suffered to the Tigers in the Los Altos Tournament earlier this year.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Two innings of miscues added up to six innings of bad news for Coach Rich Henning's Hoover High softball team. Henning and the Tornadoes fell on hard times in the field and at the plate Thursday afternoon to the tune of a 13-2 Pacific League loss against visiting Arcadia. The game was called after six innings because of the 10-run mercy rule. "We couldn't rebound from the first two innings," Henning said after two first-inning errors helped give the Apaches a 2-0 lead before they batted around in the second to extend the lead to 5-0. "We couldn't recoup and it's going to be about repetition and working harder.

After 50 years in Glendale, Red Carpet Wine & Spirits is pulling up stakes and moving to Arcadia. To some, it's the end of an era. Glendale city spokesman Tom Lorenz said he bought cigars at Red Carpet to hand out after the birth of his first child. “If you wanted to get a good bottle of wine and pick out a good cigar, that was the place to go,” Lorenz said Wednesday. Opened in 1964 on Brand Boulevard by John Vincenti, the liquor store that specializes in fine wines moved to 400 E. Glenoaks Blvd.

ARCADIA - No matter where he sat or stood, the view wasn't pretty for Hoover High football Coach Andrew Policky on Friday night. Policky spent the first half of Hoover's Pacific League road game against Arcadia in the pressbox before returning to the sideline for the second half. Unfortunately for Policky and the Tornadoes, it didn't matter where the coach was, as things didn't turn out for the best as Hoover suffered a 49-6 defeat. Hoover dropped to 2-4, 0-3 in league after beginning its season with two straight wins for the first time since 2005.

LA CRESCENTA - Despite some lineup shuffling and a change of scenery, the Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis team wasn't able to make up any ground on Arcadia when the rivals met for the second time this season in Pacific League play on Tuesday. In fact, the Falcons fared slightly worse in their most recent 16-2 defeat at home after losing to the Apaches, 15-3, on the road on Sept. 6, but Falcons Coach Sam Hyun couldn't really fault his team's effort. “I cannot blame them, they did their best, but score-wise, we are worse than last time,” said Hyun, whose team fell to 9-4 and 5-3 in league, staying in third place.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? In recent seasons, games between the Crescenta Valley High and Arcadia baseball teams have gone close to three hours with low-scoring contests usually the norm. Crescenta Valley and Arcadia, for years the top squads in the Pacific League, met in their first of two meetings this season on Friday. The game took about three hours, but the bats for both teams proved to be the story. And in another contrast, Crescenta Valley fell to fifth place in league after it was handed an 11-7 loss by Arcadia Friday night at Stengel Field.

PASADENA - In an annual rite of passage, Crescenta Valley High finishes its Pacific League dual meet schedule with a matchup against rival Arcadia. “Both programs prepare for this meet and the Pacific League championships each year,” CV boys' Coach Jan Sakonju said. “It's part of a season goal, but also a career goal. This meet is important. This rivalry is important.” Both the Falcons boys' and girls' squads came through to claim the victory over the Apaches by scores of 99-71 and 117-53, respectively, on Tuesday afternoon at Pasadena City College.

ARCADIA - What first started as a league showdown and a battle on the diamond turned into a rainy mess and an ultimate search for a rule book and league constitution. The Crescenta Valley High and Arcadia baseball teams met Friday evening intent on trying to create separation amongst themselves atop the Pacific League standings. Instead, the Falcons and Apaches are not sure if they'll be seeing more of themselves sooner or later and whether either is still in first place as Friday's game was called in the bottom of the eighth due to rain in a 4-4 tie. “We have to go look at the league book,” Crescenta Valley skipper Phil Torres said.

LA CRESCENTA - For four seasons, Crescenta Valley High's Hannah Cookson has drawn acclaim largely due to her dangerous bat in the heart of the Falcons' lineup. But her glove and range in center field have been steady, if not spectacular, all along. In a pivotal Pacific League game against archrival Arcadia on Friday afternoon at Crescenta Valley High, Cookson shined in all facets. PHOTOS: Cookson leads Crescenta Valley to 3-1 victory Her two-run home run propelled Crescenta Valley to a lead it would not relinquish and a dazzling over-the-shoulder catch sealed the Falcons' 3-1 victory over the Apaches.

LA CRESCENTA - A strong regular season will go without one big prize for the Crescenta Valley High girls' track and field team. The Falcons entered Tuesday afternoon's regular season-ending Pacific League track meet versus Arcadia hoping to dethrone the champions at home. Despite a few strong efforts, the Falcons came up short, 83-53, to finish runner-up to eight-time titlist Arcadia, which also won the boys' meet, 82-54. “Hey, the girls did a great job, they have nothing to be ashamed of,” Falcons Coach Mark Evans said.

ARCADIA - While top efforts were at a premium at the 47th annual Arcadia Invitational Track and Field Meet, that didn't stop a handful of athletes from Crescenta Valley, Flintridge Prep and St. Francis high schools from thriving Saturday afternoon. Three entrants posted top-five finishes, led by the Crescenta Valley boys' distance medley team. The distance medley event, which calls for a relay format of a 1,200-meter run, 400, 800 and 1,600, was run by the Falcons' foursome of senior Nick Beatty, sophomore Armin Cardenas-Nuno and seniors Matt Manalo and Gabe Collison, respectively.

ARCADIA - Reactions and accomplishments certainly differed for the several area athletes who competed on the first day of the 47th annual Arcadia Invitational Track and Field Meet at Arcadia High on Friday evening. For the Flintridge Prep boys' seeded 4x1,600-meter relay team, Friday was about redemption and rivalry. The Rebels finished third in 17 minutes, 54.66 seconds, but would have been happy in any position, just as long as it was ahead of heated state Division V cross-country rival Alameda St. Joseph (23rd, 18:35.69)

GLENDALE - The Hoover High baseball team learned something valuable in its game Friday against Arcadia. Hoover, which has been among the lower-positioned teams in the Pacific League in recent years, was not intimidated by Arcadia, which has been a league title contender for decades. In fact, the Tornadoes might just have received a boost in realizing they could play with the Apaches. Despite losing a 6-2 Pacific League contest at home, the Tornadoes walked away from the game encouraged and not at all forlorn.

ARCADIA - Having won its first five games of the season, it appeared the members of the Hoover High softball team had gained plenty of traction. In the first inning of Thursday's Pacific League road contest against Arcadia, the Tornadoes' streak of perfection skidded out of control. Hoover allowed nine runs in the opening inning and suffered a 19-1 defeat in a game called in the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. “Everybody on the team got a big dose of real softball,” said Hoover Coach Rich Henning, whose team finished with just one hit and dropped to 5-1, 1-1 in league.

LA CRESCENTA - After jumping out of the gates in impressive fashion and winning its first four Pacific League matches, the Crescenta Valley High boys' tennis team has dropped its last two to foes that appear to be vying for a title, along with the Falcons. The common denominator of the two defeats - to Hoover on March 11 and most recently, Arcadia, at home on Tuesday afternoon - has been Crescenta Valley's inability to stay with their opponent in the singles bracket. The Falcons, similarly to their match with the Tornadoes, garnered just two wins in singles play, and despite getting five out of nine in doubles, fell to the first-place and undefeated Apaches, 11-7.
