BOYS' SOCCER Baldwin Park 0, La Canada 0 (Braves advance on penalty kicks, 5-4): It wasn't a scenario that was unfamiliar to A.J. Wickersham. Unfortunately for the La Canada senior goalkeeper, the result seemed painfully familiar. The only other time the Spartans were forced to go a shootout this season, Wickersham shut out Bellflower during regulation and did his best to hold off the Buccaneers during penalty kicks, only to watch as his team missed its final shot, resulting in a quarterfinal loss in its own tournament.

Erik Boal CERRITOS -- It may take a little luck and a lot of patience, but mark March 3 on your calendars.

The Spartans, who won their 12th Rio Hondo League title in 14 seasons under Coach Louie Bilowitz, were awarded the No. 1 seed and the Golden Knights -- who won their last six matches to capture the Mission League title -- the No. 3 seed.
