The following are odds and ends from the first meeting of the year, which was held at Oakmont Country Club.

TUJUNGA - Things are certainly coming along fast early in Brian Gadsby's football-playing days. The Crescenta Valley High quarterback was called up for the last two games of last season, leading the Falcons to a pair of victories. Gadsby kicked off the new season with an impressive outing Friday night, as he tossed a career-high six touchdowns passes to power visiting Crescenta Valley to a 54-20 intersectional victory against Verdugo Hills. “The learning process has been good and you try to just go out there and pick up different things,” said Gadsby, who completed 13 of 23 passes for 174 yards.

GLENDALE - After playing his worst statistical game of the season last week, Crescenta Valley High football's Brian Gadsby was eager to return to form. Hoover realized that was trouble. The Falcons quarterback completed 12 of 17 passes for 263 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in the first half and was pulled, along with the rest of the starters, in the second half that included a running clock from start to finish. Gadsby led his side to a 39-point lead at halftime and Crescenta Valley cruised to a convincing 56-16 Pacific League win Friday night at Moyse Field.

With a season lost, an opportunity at hand and an archrival poised to end the year as bitterly as it had progressed, Crescenta Valley High's football team called on a junior varsity sophomore quarterback. Less than 24 hours removed from a loss to Glendale that still lingers for the Falcons, Brian Gadsby was watching game film with friends when his phone rang with varsity assistant Dennis Gossard on the other end. “I was like, 'Huh? He's never called me before,'” Gadsby recalls.

Was sports writer Andrew J. Campa at the same game we attended last Friday night? We did see some “sloppy” plays with too many penalties , however the several turnovers made the game a good one for football fans. Campa's use of adjectives like “lethargic” and “muddling” describing the Falcons doesn't seem to mesh with his reporting a 67-yard assault in four plays to set up a touchdown by Kevin Hello. The Falcons' Brian Gadsby's great passing, Alex Atanackovic'c 33- and 28-yard field goals, and both the Falcon's and Glendale's several pass interceptions made it an exciting game.

LA CRESCENTA — For a Little Leaguer, Kyle Currie turned in a professional-type at bat. With the go-ahead run on base, Currie fell behind, 0-2, in the count before working the count full. On the eighth pitch of the plate appearance, the patient Currie struck pay dirt. Currie came through with a key two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning to help Trotta Floor Covering to a 6-1 win against Crippen Mortuary on Tuesday night in the if-necessary championship game of the La Crescenta Babe Ruth District Championship at Dunsmore Park.

THOUSAND OAKS — "Carmageddon" didn't stop the La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team from making it to Thousand Oaks High on Saturday morning. The closure of the 405 Freeway for construction and maintenance near the vicinity didn't prove to be much of a deterrent for the locals, but they did encounter some gridlock on the field in their attempt to cut a clear path to the championship game of the Babe Ruth League Southern California State Tournament. La Crescenta was knocked from the winner's bracket in its morning game against El Segundo with a 9-1 loss before rallying back to the championship round with a 9-5 win over Simi Valley in a loser's bracket game Saturday afternoon.

GLENDALE - Just four games into the 2014 season, Crescenta Valley High junior pitcher Brian Gadsby has looked every bit the Falcons ace and the highly-touted standout he's quickly become. On Wednesday night in a Dick's Tournament game against Fullerton High, Gadsby again looked the part. The junior right-hander tossed a complete game to key the Falcons to a 2-1 victory over the Indians at Stengel Field. It marked the second straight win for Crescenta Valley (3-1). “It wasn't his best stuff,” Falcons Coach Phil Torres said, “but he competed, which he always does.

GLENDALE - For the visiting Burroughs High and Crescenta Valley baseball teams, Tuesday evening's Pacific League contest provided a way for each squad to respond to its respective effort during Friday's rivalry game action. While the Indians enjoyed a victory over archrival Burbank on Friday, the Falcons received a tie at rival Arcadia that dealt Crescenta Valley a blow to its league title chances. The result clearly weighed heavily on the minds of the Falcons, who scored five runs over the final two innings for a 7-0 victory at Stengel Field.

PASADENA - For seven innings, Crescenta Valley High junior pitcher Brian Gadsby was strong on the mound and his defense was flawless behind him. The Falcons' bats were chiming, as well, but runs were hard to come by in a first-place showdown with host Pasadena. That changed from the fifth inning on, as the Falcons put together six runs over the final three innings to hand the Bulldogs their first league loss and force a three-way tie atop the league standings.

BURBANK - With both the Burroughs High and Crescenta Valley baseball teams, squads that had made the playoffs a season earlier, having opened up Pacific League play with losses to teams that had finished outside of the top four in league last year, perhaps Friday afternoon's league showdown took on even more importance. For the Falcons, at least, that was the mindset. And, behind some early offense and solid pitching, Crescenta Valley staved off host Burroughs for a 4-1 league victory.

GLENDALE - Just before the season began, Crescenta Valley High baseball Coach Phil Torres proclaimed Pasadena as the favorite to win the Pacific League championship this season, even though his Falcons had won the previous two league titles. Torres made the claim in due to the Bulldogs' plethora of returners who he thought were primed to break out. The Bulldogs took a big first step Tuesday night in staking their league claim. Pasadena's Niko Lopez tossed six strong innings and the Bulldogs took advantage of an uncharacteristically sloppy Falcons defense in a 3-0 victory at Stengel Field in the league opener for both teams.

GLENDALE - Crescenta Valley High's Brian Gadsby turned in a pitching performance that, in hindsight, didn't need much run support. The Falcons offense gave it to him anyway and, coupled with six errors from the La Cañada defense, the defending Pacific League co-champions cruised to a 19-0 season-opening victory on Tuesday evening at Stengel Field. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley cruises to 19-0 victory in season opener Gadsby, a junior and Crescenta Valley's No. 1 starter this season, struck out 10 batters and gave up two hits while also walking two batters in six strong innings for the Falcons, who will look to him to lead the rotation.
