BURBANK - Before turning into a nailbiter, Tuesday's matchup between the Glendale High girls' basketball team and Granada Hills started as a defensive struggle. Ultimately, the contest resulted in a Nitros defeat. Glendale fell to Granada Hills, 33-30, at John Burroughs High in the consolation bracket of the Magnolia Optimist tournament. "I don't expect them to go on a scoring spree," said Nitros Coach Tania Adary. "I just want them to play defense. If they're scoring 15 points in a half, and the other team is scoring five or 10, I'm happy.

GLENDALE - While the Glendale High baseball team is only six games into its season under first-year co-coach Chris Funaro, the Nitros' new leader has developed two different lineups - one geared toward offense and the other defense. Funaro went with the defensive grouping Saturday in a Babe Herman Tournament contest with visiting Granada Hills. Unfortunately for the Nitros, it showed as they were held to three hits and shut out in a 5-0 loss to bring their record to 1-5 this season.

Top of the late morning to you. Today's news bites come from all around. Dip in and check 'em out.  Rep. Howard Berman, locked in a tough election campaign against fellow Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman , issued a press release condemning a New Mexico group who advocates shutting off aid to Israel. Confused yet? North Hollywood Patch  Ultazone in Sherman Oaks is offering unlimited Laser Tag tonight as part of a doggie fundraiser. So, yes, you still look dorky, but it's for a good cause.

QUARTZ HILL - Crescenta Valley Major All-Star softball Coach Dave Fox liked the makeup of his squad throughout the playoffs. Crescenta Valley exemplified character in winning the District 16 title before advancing to the Section 2 Tournament. Unfortunately for Crescenta Valley, it occasionally had one inning in most of its postseason contests in which it struggled in some facet. “We are a four-inning team, sometimes a five-inning team,” said Fox, whose team saw its season wrap up Monday night with a 6-4 loss to Granada Hills in the Section 2 championship contest at Quartz Hill Little League Fields.

NEWHALL - Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer Coach Grant Clark could sense a bit of uneasiness while watching his team protect a late lead. Throughout the majority of their pool-play match against Granada Hills in the Hart Tournament on Friday, the Falcons had no trouble generating good scoring chances. Unfortunately for the Falcons, they couldn't capitalize on their opportunities and didn't protect a slim one-goal lead in the second half. Crescenta Valley's Jason Winicki and Granada Hills' Eddie Leon swapped goals in a 1-1 tie. “We played well, but we never found a way to get that second goal,” Clark said.

GLENDALE — For Crescenta Valley 9-10 Softball All-Star Coach Dan Abboud, the proof his team is ready to compete in the Section 2 Tournament wasn't in the squad's lopsided wins to open the District 16 All-Star Tournament, but rather in the come-from-behind 6-4 win it notched over Burbank on Tuesday in the title game to advance to the Sectionals. "I was a little concerned at the beginning [of the District All-Star tournament] where we were coming and steamrolling all these teams and, really, I believe what makes a good team is a team that can come from behind and that's what we did," said Abboud, whose team trailed Burbank, 3-0, early but rallied to win behind runs batted in by Alli Lombardo, Roxy Raad and Alexis Abboud and 4 2/3 strong innings in the circle from Lombardo.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — No matter how early in the season it is, soccer can be frustrating just the same. Take for instance Thursday night, as St. Francis High opened up its 2008-09 season with a pool play match in the Ralph Brandt Tournament at its own Friedman Field. The Golden Knights got off 22 shots, but just one went in. Visiting Granada Hills, in turn, was able to muster but six, but one went in. It all equated to a 1-1 stalemate between St. Francis and Granada Hills.

Saro Sarkisian NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Glendale High boys' basketball players Riley Van Patten and Isa Hall proved Thursday against Granada Hills that they might be a force to be reckoned with when the regular season tips off in November. Van Patten and Hall led the Nitros to an impressive 57-47 victory against the Highlanders in the first round of the Vaquero Summer Tip-Off Tournament at Glendale Community College. The Nitros advanced to the winner's-bracket quarterfinals and will play La Salle -- a winner against Van Nuys Grant -- at 11:55 a.m. today at GCC.

Charles Rich A horde of players had enough stamina to curl their fingers around the chain-linked fence. Exhaustion had accumulated from tightly gripping their racquets and there were enough energetic shouts of encouragement in between lengthy volleys. Unfortunately, a streak had to be snapped between two of the more prominent girls' tennis programs in the region. Crescenta Valley High saw its 48-match regular-season winning streak come to a halt Friday after it tied visiting Granada Hills, 8-8, in an intersectional match.

LA CAÑADA - A first half of near-balanced action between the St. Francis High and visiting Granada Hills boys' soccer teams gave way to a lopsided second half in opening pool-play action of the Ralph Brandt Tournament.
