Hoover plays the winner of the Jefferson-Birmingham match at 6 p.m. tonight at La Canada High. "I liked that we advanced in the tournament," Rubio said.

ARCADIA — For all the chances missed by the St. Francis High baseball team on a warm Wednesday afternoon, none of those misfortunes seemed to matter in a seventh inning filled with dramatics. But just as suddenly as the Golden Knights had so dramatically evened the score and seemingly turned the tide in their favor, Glendora walked off with a 5-4 victory in the eighth inning of an Arcadia High Tournament contest. “That’s big,” said St. Francis Coach Brian Esquival of his team rallying for two runs in the top of the seventh inning with two outs to send the game to extra innings.

PASADENA -- No Mark Moore, no problem? No, problem. Without its 6-foot-2 senior forward, the La Canada High boys' basketball team couldn't move inside against Glendora for rebounds or even lay-ups in the nightcap of the Second Annual McDonald's Invitational at Pasadena City College. So the Tartans forced the Spartans to take 36 three-point shots -- still an inordinate amount for a team recognized for its distance shooting. La Canada made 12 of them, but Glendora pulled ahead in the third quarter and the Spartans never recovered, fallling, 70-58.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? To say Hoover High's baseball team has had a bad experience at the 41st Babe Herman Tournament would be an understatement. On Tuesday, the Tornadoes lost their third tournament game in as many tries, getting shut out for a second straight contest as they fell to Glendora, 9-0, at Stengel Field. "I don't think we came ready to play," said Hoover Coach Jim Delzell, whose team fell to 9-5. "I don't want to take anything away from Glendora, they're a good team, but we didn't play like we're capable of playing."
