Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Somebody, please, challenge this team. Obviously opponents didn't enjoy it much. But, at this point, even the members of the No. 2-seeded Hoover boys' tennis team are fed up with breezing through playoff matches against overmatched Montebello Schurr and Paramount. Breezing through like, well, Tornadoes. Hoover has pulled off back-to-back 18-0 shutouts, victories in which the entire roster was able to contribute. It might not be "some kind of record", as freshman No. 2 singles player Sam Tadevosian concluded, but it is true that no other team in the CIF Southern Section Division I draw has twice recorded the same lopsided results thus far. The only other shutouts belonged to Hoover's opponent today, Diamond Bar, which beat Fontana A.B. Miller, 18-0, in the first round, Anaheim Esperanza, which shut down Redlands in the second round, Rolling Hills Estates Peninsula, which blanked Santa Ana in the first, and Santa Monica, which didn't allow a set to Pico Rivera El Rancho in the first.

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.

MURRIETA - A mixture of frustration and satisfaction best summed up the feelings of Crescenta Valley High's Jocelyn Chia and Burbank's Irene Maemura immediately following the pair's season-ending efforts at Thursday's 2012 CIF-Women's Southern California Golf Assn. girls' Southern California Championship at the Golf Club at Rancho California. Both shot above the cut line of 72, which was par for the 18-hole course, and thus were unable to advance to Tuesday's state girls' golf championship at Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga.

LA CRESCENTA - Nothing came easy to the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team in its second-round playoff game against visiting Diamond Bar on Tuesday, except for the air of self-assuredness that comes with a 23-match unbeaten streak. The Falcons didn't score until there were just 14 minutes left in the match, when Pavle Atanackovic put his fourth goal of the postseason away on a breakaway, but took solace in their plethora of chances over the first 66 minutes and relied on their rock-solid defense to ensure no further scoring would be necessary to advance to the CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinals after a 1-0 home win. "We believed that we were going to win," said Atanackovic, who scored all three goals in the Falcons' 3-2 come-from-behind, sudden-death win over Laguna Beach on Thursday.

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.

Throughout most of the season, Jocelyn Chia has consistently relied on her short game. It helped the Crescenta Valley High girls' golfer win the Pacific League individual championship for the first time and then played a role in getting her through the CIF Southern Section Northern Individual Regionals. On Monday at the CIF Southern Section Individual Final Championships at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente, Chia's short game temporarily deserted her. She found it in time to keep her season going, however.

LA CRESCENTA — After winning its CIF Southern Section Division IV first-round match Friday afternoon, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team erased forgettable memories of last season's unexpectedly short-lived playoff run, in which they were upset after winning a program-first Pacific League title. More importantly, however, the sudden-death goal from Alex Berger that put an end to a nailbiter played on a wet field at Crescenta Valley High put the Falcons into the second round and raises the possibility of a deep playoff run after going undefeated in the Pacific League and winning league yet again.
