HACIENDA HEIGHTS - It could be argued that the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team was in need of a challenge before the start of the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs after the Falcons already outscored two Pacific League tournament foes by nearly 30 goals en route to capturing a league championship. For a while, it seemed like Division IV third-ranked Los Altos was that test. Yet, visiting Division V top-ranked Crescenta Valley responded to an early three-goal deficit by scoring 17 of the game's final 23 goals versus the Conquerors in an 18-10 victory Friday afternoon.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — An aerial approach to open the game by the St. Francis High football team gave way to a methodical ground attack later on. The result was a perfect blend of pass and run. Austin Heyworth threw for two first-quarter touchdowns, Dietrich Riley ran for 175 yards and a score and, in between, Evan King punched in two tallies en route to a Golden Knights 35-21 nonleague home win over Los Altos on Friday night....

There might not be a need for player introductions prior to the Glendale High and Los Altos boys' water polo teams diving into the pool with a championship on the line Saturday. The Nitros and Conquerors are quite familiar with one another having played twice during the regular season. The third matchup will be of mammoth proportions when top-seeded Glendale (21-6) takes on second-seeded Los Altos (21-10) in the CIF Southern Section Division V title match at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine.

Glendale High boys' water polo Coach Forest Holbrook said his team had worked in practice on what it would do in a make-or-break situation with its top scorer out of the game at the end of Saturday's CIF Southern Section Division V championship match. Having an emergency plan in mind is one thing, but executing it to perfection in the final minutes of the biggest match in program history is quite another. On Saturday, it was the difference between once again coming close and finally closing out on the ultimate prize.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan GLENDALE -- It didn't take long for St. Francis High Athletic Director Terry Terrazone to complete his search for a new baseball coach. A little more than a month after former Golden Knight Coach Jeff Durfee resigned because of personal issues, Terrazone tabbed former Cal State Northridge baseball player Mike Solar. "There is some talent [at St. Francis] and with some luck I think we are headed in the right direction," said Solar, who turned 31 Friday.

APPLE VALLEY - Before the season began, Flintridge Prep girls' soccer Coach Esteban Chavez wasn't sure what to expect of his young team. The Rebels were in line to field a team dotted with freshmen and sophomores, sprinkled in with some juniors and seniors. Shortly after Flintridge Prep saw its season conclude Wednesday with a 4-0 road loss against Granite Hills in a CIF Southern Section Division III second-round match, Chavez praised his squad. “We came a long way in short time,” said Chavez, whose team finished 14-5-5 after placing second in the Prep League behind top-seeded Pasadena Poly.

Less than three minutes away from helping the Glendale High boys' water polo team win the program's first CIF Southern Section championship, Arman Momdzhyan heard an unpleasant sound and looked over his right shoulder in dismay. It was the reverberation of the referee's whistle and signaled the senior utility player had picked up his third exclusion of the tight contest with 2:22 remaining in the fourth quarter. Momdzhyan arrived at the Glendale bench and sat nervously while the Nitros were left to compete without their leading scorer while protecting a two-goal lead against Los Altos in the CIF Southern Section Division V title match at William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine on Nov. 23. “It was without a doubt the most stressful few minutes of my life,” said Momdzhyan, who finished with a team-high six goals for top-seeded Glendale in a 13-11 win against second-seeded Los Altos.

It was a moment that hadn't occurred in nearly 25 years - a Glendale High sports team receiving a CIF championship plaque and hoisting it in the air while celebrating in front of its ardent fans. Occasionally, the Nitros got close to winning a title by advancing to the semifinals or finals. However, they would go on to endure their share of heartbreak. Heartbreak turned into jubilation late Saturday afternoon when top-seeded Glendale posted a 13-11 victory against second-seeded Los Altos in the CIF Southern Section Division V championship match at William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center.

Playing with an edge while committed to his respective roles on offense and defense has made Manuk Piloyan symbolic of what the Glendale High boys' water polo team strives to be on a match-by-match basis. He's quick to come up with a steal while playing tenacious defense at hole/guard and then promptly leads a counterattack that might wind up with the Nitros getting a quality scoring opportunity. There's always a course of action for Piloyan, a junior, no matter what's at stake during a contest.
