BASEBALL Burbank 5, Glendale 1: A day after defeating Pasadena, the Nitros dropped a Pacific League home contest Wednesday afternoon. Senior Rafael Ruiz knocked in the lone run for the Nitros (4-8, 2-6) in the seventh with a bases-loaded grounder to short. Pitcher Dillion Howard (0-1) picked up the tough-luck defeat, allowing three unearned runs over four innings before being replaced by sophomore Brandon Keene, who surrendered two runs in three innings of work.

PASADENA - The Pasadena High football team knew it could score on Crescenta Valley in Friday's Pacific League game, and the Falcons knew that they would have fits against the Bulldog offense. The only question was whether the Bulldogs - who allowed more than 40 points in each of their previous two league contests - could stop the Falcons enough times to win. Pasadena proved it could stop Crescenta Valley when it needed to. The Bulldogs shut down the Falcon offense for the majority of the second half and exploded for 33 unanswered points in the process en route to 53-42 home win. Crescenta Valley's second-team offense scored two touchdowns in the final two minutes to make the score respectable.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — It turned out to be a win-win for the girls' tennis teams from both Flintridge Prep and Burbank on Friday, as the Rebels loaded up on confidence and the Bulldogs played for experience. Prep was clicking on all cylinders as it rolled through Burbank, 14-4, at Scholl Canyon Park. Singles play continued to be a strength for the Rebels, as their top two singles players, juniors Kira Lee and Jenise Vargas, won all their sets. Lee was close to perfect, as she didn't surrender a single set, winning them all, 6-0. "It felt really nice to go out there and do really well today," Lee said.

BURBANK - Prior to Crescenta Valley High boys' tennis team meeting Burbank in a Pacific League match for the second time in less than a week, Burbank Coach Loi Phan predicted Tuesday's contest would be close again. Crescenta Valley and Burbank backed up Phan's statement, as Burbank earned an 11-7 home victory. "I just told both teams during the introductions that it would be that way," said Phan, who saw Crescenta Valley best Burbank, 9-9(79-70), on Thursday at Crescenta Valley.

PASADENA - Coming within a point of a tie late in the opening half, the Hoover High football team appeared ready to perhaps seize its first win of the season, or at least come close to it, against host Pasadena. But the inspired play by the Tornadoes seemingly jolted the Bulldogs, who then answered with four consecutive touchdowns to take a 49-19 Pacific League victory Thursday night. Hoover (0-8, 0-5) remained winless, while Pasadena (5-3, 4-1) won its fourth straight game.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — A year ago, the Pasadena High football team defeated Hoover because it was too fast and when it got to the outside, the Tornadoes couldn't catch the Bulldogs. Not much changed this season. The Bulldogs rushed for 212 yards and limited the Tornadoes to 71 total yards through three quarters in a 41-7 Pacific League victory Friday at Moyse Field. "Their speed was too much for us," Tornado Coach Chris Long conceded. Pasadena's speed made a difference on offense and defense.

BURBANK — With each strikeout recorded by Crescenta Valley High pitcher Kyle Murray, each Burbank batter walked slowly back to the dugout frustrated. It became a common occurrence in what turned out to be a career day for Murray. Murray struck out 15 and hit a solo home run for good measure Tuesday to help lift visiting Crescenta Valley to a 3-1 Pacific League win against Burbank. Murray, a senior right-hander, got stronger as the game quickly moved along on a warm afternoon.

LA CRESCENTA - A deciding fifth game appeared all but certain for the second time this season between the Crescenta Valley High and Burbank boys' volleyball teams. Raymond Barsemian made sure that situation would not occur again, though, by turning in a splendid stretch of serving. Barsemian collected three of his five aces in the fourth game to spark host Crescenta Valley to a 13-25, 25-21, 25-14, 25-22 Pacific League win against Burbank on Tuesday in a key Pacific League match.

BURBANK - Burbank High's baseball team, the co-defending league champion, found itself in an all-too-familiar situation Friday of having to play catch-up in a Pacific League game against visiting Glendale. But, although the Nitros enjoyed a three-run advantage after a big four-run inning, Glendale couldn't hold on to the lead. Burbank battled back, scoring three runs in the fifth inning and tallying the winning score in the sixth, to rally for a 5-4 victory at home. The win is only the second in league for the Bulldogs (5-11-1, 2-4 in league)

GLENDALE - A season ago, the Burbank High baseball team and the Crescenta Valley High baseball team were neck-and-neck atop the standings and eventually shared the Pacific League crown. But a year later, with Burbank relying on an inexperienced lineup after graduating 14 seniors, Crescenta Valley looks as if it has the upper hand. The Falcons bested the young Bulldogs on Friday night at Stengel Field, 4-1. “Beating every team will make us feel good,” Crescenta Valley senior Michael Russo said.

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.

LA CRESCENTA - In a Pacific League track and field cluster meet that was more rust-shaker than showdown, host Crescenta Valley High showed off its depth and may have signaled its intent for a title run after sweeping Burbank and Hoover on Thursday afternoon. PHOTOS: Dual track meet between Crescenta Valley, Burbank, and Hoover The Falcons' boys defeated runner-up Burbank, 72-64, while the girls' fended off the Bulldogs, 78-71.

PASADENA - No team so far this Pacific League boys' soccer season has been able to hang a loss on Pasadena High, although Glendale came as close as anybody earlier this season when it tied the Bulldogs. In the rematch, this time on the Bulldogs' home pitch, Glendale fell into a two-goal hole early on and was never able to climb out. Pasadena won, 2-1, Monday afternoon to stay unbeaten in league and protect its spot on top of the Pacific League standings tied with Burroughs. “The thing is we started very bad,” second-year Glendale coach Artur Aghasyan said.

BURBANK - Burbank High water polo Coach Allison Young wants her team to play more like league foe Glendale. Specifically, the coach would like to see a more aggressive style of play from her Bulldogs, something the Nitros have displayed this season. Glendale came out and played its aggressive style, particularly on defense, Wednesday when it took on the host Bulldogs in a Pacific League contest, prompting an early lead. But Burbank pushed back, cut the deficit and made a game of it.

PASADENA - In scoring four of the first five goals of the fourth quarter, the Glendale High girls' water polo team broke open a contentious match versus host Pasadena High en route to a 15-13 victory in the opening Pacific League contest for the Nitros on Wednesday afternoon. “I think we play best with a little bit of pressure and when we started the fourth quarter that's what we had,” said Nitros co-Coach Casey Sripramong, a 2008 alumna. “We haven't had much problems generating offense, but our defense has been our big issue.

NEWHALL - The size advantage the Highland boys' basketball team held in the post was evident to everyone in the Hart High gym on Thursday afternoon, but it was the play of the Bulldogs' athletic guards that really hurt Crescenta Valley the most. Bulldogs center Devin Burleson routinely drew an extra defender in the post, leaving the backside exposed for easy dunks and layups, a formula Crescenta Valley struggled to adjust to in 58-43 loss at the Hart Holiday Classic. “We focused on the size, but we needed to focus on everyone,” said Crescenta Valley center Eric Patten.

BURBANK - The Burbank High girls' water polo team took advantage of a slow start by Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy to take a lead in the first quarter of Wednesday's nonleague match. But the Tologs made adjustments in the second quarter and the Bulldogs' offense went ice cold. So cold, in fact, that Burbank was shut out in the second and third quarters. Taking full advantage, Sacred Heart grabbed the momentum of the contest and was able to coast to a relatively easy 9-4 victory over the host Bulldogs.
