D'Angelo Blake and Noche Nwofer have seen the transformation of the Glendale Community College football team unfold nicely. The sophomores have been a major part of the team's resurgence in their quest to help put Glendale on the brink of a possible playoff game. Blake and Nwofer will look to help complete the job when Glendale meets host L.A. Pierce in a crucial Pacific Conference American Division contest at 7 p.m. Saturday. Glendale, which clinched its first winning season since 2007 with a 24-17 division road victory against Santa Barbara on Nov. 9, is 6-3, 4-2 in the division.

GLENDALE — Last season, L.A. Pierce College represented one of the Glendale Community College football team’s weaker opponents. The Vaqueros hammered that point home with a 28-3 drubbing of the Brahmas, who ended the season with only one victory. Times have certainly changed with Pierce already notching two wins this season, as this year’s match-up figures to be a more competitive meeting. That showdown comes when the Vaqueros travel to face the Brahmas in a Western State Conference game at 7 p.m. today.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — In the first half of its game against visiting L.A. Pierce College on Tuesday night, the Glendale Community College women’s basketball team got it half right. On the defensive side of the court, the Vaqueros couldn’t have done a much better job, limiting the Brahmas to just 28 points. Problem was, the Vaqueros essentially limited themselves to 21 points scored in a first half that featured more Glendale college turnovers (10) than field goals (eight)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Through its first five games, the Glendale Community College football team is undefeated. What happens in the next five games will ultimately define its season, though. Heading into today's home showdown against L.A. Pierce College at 7 p.m., the Vaqueros are currently in first place in the Western State Conference Southern Division. But there is still a whole lot of season left to be played. "It's a brand new season," said Coach John Cicuto.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - The seniors on the Glendale High boys' basketball team promised before the season that they wouldn't graduate without giving Coach Steve Snodgress his first playoff win in his 16-year tenure. They fulfilled their promise Friday. The Nitros fought off a number of challenges from a scrappy Diamond Bar team and never trailed in a 56-49 home win in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division IA playoffs. It was the program's first postseason victory since a 56-54 triumph against Santa Monica on Feb. 16, 1993 in the first round of the Division IAA playoffs.

GCC preview for SaturdayFootball: Glendale College begins second half of season with interdivisional game against L.A. Pierce. GLENDALE -- The Glendale Community College football team entered its bye week with a two-game winning streak and playing its best in years. Its offense was overpowering. Its opportunistic defense was stifling. And its special teams' play improved since a season-opening debacle, as Glendale College had a 3-2 record at the halfway point of the year. The Vaqueros made sure their intensity didn't let up during their bye week, as their coaches pushed them to keep the same passion to win that they recently displayed.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — It was only Brandon Torres' first game of his college career. Judging by his performance, it probably won't be his last. The freshman running back carried the Glendale College football team to a 28-3 interdivision victory against L.A. Pierce College on Saturday at Sartoris Field, finishing with 126 yards and two touchdowns in 15 carries. "It feels really good," said Torres, who broke his hand on the first day of full-contact practice and just recently became healthy enough to play.

LA CANADA - There was one brief departure from what was a defensive-oriented game in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division III girls' soccer playoffs at Flintridge Prep Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Rebels, it was the Brahmas that enjoyed the respite, scoring the game's first and only goal in the 42nd minute off a long throw-in for the 1-0 victory. The manner in which Diamond Bar scratched out the game's lone tally didn't surprised Prep Coach Esteban Chavez. “I didn't know, but I thought if they scored it would be on a long throw because they're good at it, they're dangerous,” Chavez said.

GLENDALE — With a solid start to the season underway, the Glendale Community College baseball team’s 5-4 loss at Pierce College on Saturday felt more like a speed bump than a setback. Although the Vaqueros squandered a four-run lead for their first Western State Conference loss, the fact that the team sits at 8-4 overall and was coming off a win over the very same Brahmas at Stengel Field in the conference opener on Thursday had Coach Chris Cicuto in no mood to dwell on the loss.

WOODLAND HILLS - Dreams of an American Division Pacific Conference championship came to an end for the Glendale Community College football team Saturday night. The Vaqueros, who were hoping to knock off Los Angeles Pierce College and take the conference's lone automatic bowl berth, will instead hope for a long shot at-large bowl selection after a 41-16 defeat in the regular season finale to the host Brahmas. With the victory, Pierce (8-2, 6-1) earned the conference's top spot due to the one-year inelligiblity of Santa Monica (8-2, 7-0)

Just when the Glendale Community College football team thought its season couldn't get anymore unpredictable, it did. The Vaqueros aren't sure when their starting quarterback will return, if at all. Then a scheduling quirk will find the Vaqueros on the home side of the field, but as the visiting team. Glendale college will meet L.A. Pierce College at 6 p.m. today at Sartoris Field in a Pacific Conference American Division contest. The game was originally scheduled to be played at Pierce, but Pierce's field is undergoing renovations.

The Glendale Community College football team was hoping to carry over the momentum from a season-ending victory last year - its only win of the 2010 campaign - and get off to a faster start this season. So far the Vaqueros have been stuck in neutral, though, staring at a 0-2 start going into today's 6 p.m. home opener at Sartoris Field against East Los Angeles. Glendale opened with a 49-28 loss at Pasadena City on Sept. 3, but regressed with a 34-7 road loss to Golden West on Saturday in which it was held scoreless until the 2:38 mark of the fourth quarter.

GLENDALE — It's halfway through the season and the Glendale Community College football team is still searching for its first victory. One of the main weaknesses for the Vaqueros throughout has been trying to stop the passing game. Now, they will face the best passing team to date on their schedule. Glendale will seek to improve on that facet of the game when it meets visiting L.A. Pierce College at 6 p.m. today in an American Conference Pacific Division contest at Sartoris Field.

WOODLAND HILLS — Over the first four weeks of the 2007 season, there’s been a time share in place between the two quarterbacks competing for the starting position for the Glendale Community College football team. That was again the case for the Vaqueros in Saturday’s Western State Conference matchup with Pierce College, but not by design. Forced to enter the game without notice when starter Mike McDonald was knocked out by an ankle injury in the second quarter, sophomore Jacob Proctor was able to sustain the momentum and the two-touchdown lead that he inherited from McDonald and guide the team to a 34-14 victory, its third in a row. “[The injury]
