Erik Boal CERRITOS -- For some local girls' volleyball teams, specifically Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, Flintridge Prep, La Canada High, Hoover and Village Christian, their tickets were punched for the postseason long before Sunday's announcement of the CIF Southern Section playoff pairings. For others, namely Crescenta Valley, Glendale Adventist and Holy Family, their fates weren't decided until the last week or the last match of their respective regular seasons.

Peter Samore TUJUNGA FIELD -- In the CIF Southern Section playoffs, distance is no object when determining playoff spots. Village Christian School hosted Ontario Christian School, which traveled 50 miles to Tujunga Field Friday for a first-round playoff game. Today, Village Christian must hit the road--all 265 miles of it--to get to Bishop Union High in Bishop for a Division V second-round baseball playoff game. This is not the first time in recent history that the Crusaders have gone that far to make a playoff game.

Mojave vs. Hoover at Moyse Field, 7 p.m.: Hoover will have a chance to do something for the first time since Buddy Holly and the Crickets pioneered the music scene: begin a season 3-0. The Tornadoes last accomplished the feat in 1958, but finished that season 4-5. Flash forward to 2005, and things have been going Hoover's way leading up to its home opener. Hoover is coming off a 14-9 nonleague road win against South Pasadena on Sept. 15. The Tornadoes turned to senior running back Alex Pantoja, who rushed for 91 yards in 14 carries and one touchdown.

GLENDALE — Had somebody mentioned to the members of the Flintridge Prep baseball team that they would score 10 runs in their CIF Southern Section Division V wild-card game Tuesday afternoon, the odds would have appeared in the Rebels’ favor that they would chalk up a victory. After all, Flintridge Prep went 7-0 in regular season games when it reached double-digits. The problem for the Rebels on Tuesday was that, like the regular season, some shabby defense led to their undoing in a 14-10 road loss to Kern Valley.

Saro Sarkisian BURBANK -- With both the Flintridge Prep and Providence baseball teams having squeaked into the postseason, both met Tuesday in a CIF Southern Section Division V wild-card game. Whereas the Pioneers proved they deserved to be there, the Rebels had trouble just fielding the ball. The Rebels were defeated by the Pioneers, 8-4, at Foy Park, as Flintridge Prep had five errors which cost them the game. "This game was very similar to our entire season, as all year we haven't really been able to play defense," Rebel Coach Buzz Cook said.

LAST WEEK: Burbank defeated Hoover, 48-7; Glendale lost to Temple City, 24-14. OUTLOOK: The Bulldogs received good news even before they took the field Friday in a win against Hoover.

Erik Boal CERRITOS -- It may take a little luck and a lot of patience, but mark March 3 on your calendars. Should the La Canada and St. Francis boys' soccer teams win four matches apiece between now and then, including their respective first-round contests at 3 p.m. Saturday, then the local powers would meet in the CIF Southern Section Division IV finals. The Spartans, who won their 12th Rio Hondo League title in 14 seasons under Coach Louie Bilowitz, were awarded the No. 1 seed and the Golden Knights -- who won their last six matches to capture the Mission League title -- the No. 3 seed.
