PASADENA - Whenever the Glendale High football team had seized momentum, La Salle had a quick response. So rapid that the Nitros could barely lay a finger on La Salle all-purpose standout Israel Lacy, who enjoyed arguably the biggest game of his career. Lacy scored on two kickoff returns and rushed for one touchdown Friday night to lead host La Salle to a 45-16 nonleague victory against Glendale at Kohorst Field. “I have to give the guys in front of me all the credit because they opened up quite a few huge holes,” said Lacy, who helped the Lancers improve to 2-0. “I saw those holes and busted right through.

The Glendale Community College football team will start the 2011 season the same way it did the last one, in a matchup with Pasadena City College. Whatever the Vaqueros learned about the Lancers from that meeting, which resulted in a 41-20 loss, may not mean much in preparing for the rematch today at 6 p.m. at PCC's Robinson Field. Having installed Coach Fred Fimbres, PCC's fifth head man in the last seven seasons, less than two months ago, the Lancers are a program coming off a 4-6 season in a state of flux with less than half of their 2010 roster returning.

PASADENA - Justin Posthuma hadn't played a football game since his last hurrah as a St. Francis High quarterback nearly two years ago. Getting his first collegiate start Saturday night with Pasadena City College against Glendale Community College in both teams' season opener at Robinson Field, Posthuma flashed the poise and playmaking ingenuity that made him an All-CIF first-team pick as a senior with the Golden Knights. After rallying the Lancers to a big early lead, Posthuma tossed two second-half touchdowns to seal a 49-28 nonconference victory and cap off a five-touchdown, 323-yard passing performance.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — With four of his starters off competing for their respective travel ball teams Thursday, Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Shawn Zargarian found his team shorthanded. Zargarian, however, preferred to focus on the benefit of having his remaining players, who don't see time on the court often, getting a chance to improve and make a case for new and bigger roles next season. The freedom to experiment aside, Crescenta Valley was handed a 60-53 loss by Grant in its opening pool-play contest of the Vaquero Summer Classic on Thursday afternoon at Glendale Community College.

PASADENA - A significant post presence and dominant transition game on the part of the La Salle High girls' basketball team doomed Flintridge Prep early on, as the Lancers downed the Rebels, 71-25, Wednesday night at the La Salle gym. The Lancers came out of the gate firing, amassing a 21-2 lead in just the first quarter and forcing the Rebels to play catch-up throughout the entire contest. It was a game plan that was executed almost exactly as planned, according to La Salle Coach Kevin Cormier.

PASADENA - There was little room for error when the Flintridge Prep girls' water polo team took on La Salle on Wednesday afternoon after the Lancers enjoyed an eight-goal margin of victory the last time the two teams met. Unfortunately for the Rebels, turnovers and a failure to capitalize on offensive advantages plagued the team in the Prep League match, as they fell to La Salle, 12-3, at Caltech. "We just have young players and there's a delay because they don't know what to do with the ball," Prep Coach Ryan Goto said.

Whatever Orange Coast College football coach Mike Taylor told his team before Saturday's game at Pasadena City College, apparently needed little time to sink in. The Pirates, who slumped to a 21-3 halftime deficit the week before in a 40-32 loss at Palomar, opened emphatically Saturday on their way to a 37-17 victory over the host Lancers. "I challenged the team before the game," said Taylor, who watched his team open a 14-0 cushion in the first 101 seconds, cruise to a 30-0 halftime lead and hold on to improve to 3-1. "We came out flat last week [against Palomar]

THOUSAND OAKS ? By the time the final whistle made Thousand Oaks High?s 4-0 CIF Southern Section Division II first-round playoff victory over Crescenta Valley on Saturday official, a late succession of goals had all but obscured the competitive tension that characterized much of the match. While the Falcons never really seemed to get into a rhythm offensively, they were able to limit the explosive Marmonte League-champion Lancers, to a single Michelle Cruz tally over the first 60-plus minutes of play.

In helping the La Salle High girls' volleyball team win its first CIF Southern Section championship, Haley DeSales brought a series of intangibles. Her powerful offensive wizardry, shrewd defensive presence and calm leadership skills on the court paved the way for DeSales to become a complete player. DeSales won't take the lion's share of credit in the aftermath of what the Lancers accomplished, though, knowing she had her teammates at her side to help her take on all challenges.

The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level. Stella Ghazarian (Glendale, 2011) freshman, Pasadena City College women's basketball: Known for her sharpshooting skills since her days as a Nitro, Ghazarian came through in a big way for the Lancers in their 67-65 win over Antelope Valley on Wednesday in the first round of the CCCAA Women's Basketball Southern California Regional playoffs. Ghazarian sank the game-winning three-pointer with 12 seconds left, her seventh long ball of the game, and finished with a team-high 27 points to spark 15th-seeded PCC's comeback from a 25-point deficit in the second half.

GLENDALE - Jordan Rodgers had the Crescenta Valley High baseball team's number on Saturday night. The La Salle starting pitcher struck out seven batters over six innings and also went two for three at the plate to lead the Lancers to a 6-3 nonleague victory over the Falcons at Stengel Field in the teams' first contest of the Babe Herman Tournament. The game was called with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning when the lights went out. “He was solid,” Crescenta Valley freshman catcher Kewis Ledesma said of the right-handed senior.

Seven weeks after playing La Salle in a nonleague contest, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' volleyball team will get another shot at the Lancers with an opportunity to advance to the CIF Southern Section Division I-A championship match. It's a challenge the fourth-seeded Tologs relish with plenty up for grabs, as they get set to meet the top-seeded Lancers in a semifinal match at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Flintridge Sacred Heart. "We are glad to be back playing against La Salle," said Flintridge Sacred Heart second-year Coach Ernest Banaag, who will look to guide the Tologs to their first final appearance since 2007.

For more than a decade, Reggie Rivas has spent countless hours on local fields preparing players for the rigors of collegiate soccer. Many of his pupils achieved success at the club and high school level under his watch. Now, Rivas is ready to begin instruction at the next level. "I just love coaching soccer and making the players that much better," said Rivas, a former Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer coach who was named head coach of the Pasadena City College women's soccer program June 24. "It's something I've done for a long time and this will be a challenge that will be fun at PCC. "I get to work for a great program and the administration is wonderful.

PASADENA - While the passing was sloppy, communication lacked and mother nature interfered with modest rain, there wasn't much that separated the Crescenta Valley High and La Salle girls' soccer teams - except for perhaps one hustle play. A rebound goal from senior Katie Callister in the first minute of extra time accounted for the offense in Friday's nonleague affair as the visiting Falcons defeated the Lancers, 1-0, at Kohorst Field. “La Salle is very good and they have a lot of things going, so it was nice to get a win,” Crescenta Valley Coach Jorden Schulz said.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - La Salle High boys' soccer Coach Dan Sheridan called the St. Francis program one of the "best in the valley," in the past 20 years, and mentioned it was beneficial for his team to play the Golden Knights. Although Sheridan had to settle for a 0-0 outing against St. Francis in Tuesday's season opener for both teams, the head coach was pleased with his squad's performance against a talented Golden Knights program at Friedman Field. While Sheridan was pleased with his defense, his counterpart was simply disappointed.

VENTURA -- Despite dominating several areas of an unexpectedly close game, the Pasadena City College football team was forced to settle for a pat on the back Saturday evening. The Lancers came agonizingly close to a monster upset, but fell late to Southern California second-ranked Ventura, 27-14, in National Division Northern Conference action at the Ventura College Sportsplex. With the defeat, the Lancers dropped to 1-8 overall and 0-5 in conference, while the state third-ranked Pirates (10-0, 6-0)

PASADENA- Pasadena City College came into its football game hosting Moorpark College coming off its first win of the season last week and looking for its first Southern California Football Assn. National Conference win this week. The game was also a rematch of the 2002 Potato Bowl, although Saturday night's game at Robinson Stadium could have been called the Hot Potato Bowl, as both teams combined for nine turnovers. However, it was the visiting Raiders who took the most advantage by scoring 22 points off turnovers to Pasadena's 12 en route to a 36-15 victory.

COSTA MESA - Last year, in Pasadena City College football Coach Fred Fimbres' first year, his team had only three wins, but one of them was in his debut to start the season and another was a signature win in the conference opener against then-nationally ranked Fullerton. This year, five games into the season, coach Fimbres and his Lancers went into their matchup with Golden West College Saturday night still looking for a win of any kind. Finally, the wait is over, as Pasadena City College got into the win column with a 17-9 nonconference victory over the Rustlers at LeBard Stadium on the campus of Orange Coast College.

PASADENA -- History would be made at Robinson Stadium on Saturday night, as the Pasadena City College football team hosted Cerritos College.  It would not be the kind of history that Lancers Coach Fred Fimbres wants to remember, as the Falcons defeated the Lancers, 65-14. This loss goes down as the biggest deficit, 51 points, at Robinson Stadium.  It would also be the most points, 65, given up by the Lancers in the stadium's history.  Robinson Stadium was built in 1999. “Any loss is a tough loss,” Fimbres said.
