After losing five seniors and four of the top six scorers from the team that won the Golden State Athletic Conference championship in 2004, Vanguard University men's soccer coach Randy Dodge has restocked the roster for the upcoming season. Dodge, in fact, believes this year's additions may give him more options and depth than last season. Andrew Elliott has transferred from UC Irvine, where he played one season. Elliott, a native of Scotland, was the leading scorer for Paisley United in his home country for two seasons, prior to attending UCI. Elliott and two more transfers, Ryan Sullivan and Sem Lopez, will be expected to make an immediate impact and be a big part of the Lions' future.

While contemplating whether the new film ?Lions for Lambs? contains the fierceness associated with the former or the timidity of the latter, the conclusion is obvious and unfortunate. You absolutely want to be drawn into potentially compelling stories, and the failure to get anywhere close only magnifies the disappointment. In stripping away the original concept from the finished product, I would have been very cautious in foreseeing a sure-fire winner, even with three powerhouse stars to get people into the theaters.

Coming off a slow start early in the game, the Verdugo Hills High varsity football team rallied with two touchdowns in the final quarter to defeat Lincoln, 26-6, at Turner Stadium last Friday. With the win, the Dons advanced to the next round of the CIF city football championships, which was played at home against University High on Wednesday. No results were available at press time. The Dons have never previously advanced any further than the first round, but they came up against a team that they beaten in a playoff game in 1980 when the field was named Kersey Field.

Vanguard University women's basketball coach Russ Davis graduated only a couple of players from the 2004-05 season, but those losses included his best outside shooter (Lacey Mills) and All-American point guard (Lisa Faulkner), leaving big shoes to fill. After three straight Golden State Athletic Conference championships, however, the holes in the lineup sometimes fill themselves with hot recruits and Davis has picked up some quality talent again, signing three transfers and four freshmen to the 2005-06 team.

MEMORIAL FIELD -- For now, the Burbank High football squad can say its the only team to hold a lead against powerhouse Oaks Christian this season. That lead lasted exactly one minute. The game's other 47 minutes didn't go in Burbank's favor against one of the state's premier offenses. Oaks Christian quarterback Jimmy Clausen threw for 331 yards and five touchdowns to spark the Lions to a 50-10 nonleague victory against Burbank in a locally televised contest at Memorial Field on Friday night.

Alex Leon The Witt brothers played catch Monday and that meant bad news for Brigham Young-Hawaii University. Once, twice, and then three times, the ball went back and forth between Kyle, a senior setter for Loyola Marymount University men's water polo team, and Kevin, a junior driver, until Kevin saw the opening he wanted and drilled the ball into the net for a score. The Lions' 16-7 win over the Seasiders improved LMU's record to 4-1 this year thanks to three goals from Kevin and three assists from Kyle.

A bobcat was spotted walking toward the wash near Rosemont and Mayfield avenues in Montrose Wednesday morning, a day after officials from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife held a meeting informing La Crescenta residents how to avoid and handle potential encounters with wild cats, coyotes and bears. By the time Crescenta Valley Sheriff's deputies arrived on scene on Wednesday, however, the cat was gone. Tuesday's public meeting - a joint project of wildlife officials and the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station - was spurred by the death of a pet dog named Bridgett, who was killed in late November by a mountain lion in a La Crescenta backyard.
