Peter Samore VILLAGE CHRISTIAN HIGH -- It took Village Christian High just over an hour to finish off Maranatha High Monday in an 11-0 nonleague softball win at Village Christian High. The game was shortened by the 10-run mercy rule. The Crusaders (7-4) struggled on the field in the top of the first but starting pitcher Jessica McIntosh got out of a bases-loaded jam when she struck out Asha Garretson. Village Christian never looked back, as McIntosh and reliever Shannon Stauffer then retired 12 of the last 13 batters.

LA CAÑADA - If injuries weren't enough of an issue for the short-handed Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team, then the size of visiting Maranatha certainly proved a hurdle too tall to climb. The new-look Minutemen, under the direction of former longtime Pasadena High Coach Tim Tucker, leaned on 6-foot-9 center Muusa Dama, 6-6 power forward Ron Gore and 6-5 small forward Nick Springer to outreach and outrebound the Rebels en route to a 74-50 nonleague victory Friday evening. "They obviously have a great advantage inside and we fought and we battled and we stayed close in the first half," Rebels Coach Garrett Ohara said.

PASADENA — This time, it went in reverse. Fresh off winning its season-opener in which the St. Francis High basketball team made 16 three-pointers, things went the opposite direction on Friday night. St. Francis made just four three-pointers in an 84-56 setback against athletic Maranatha in a semifinal game of the Pasadena Poly Tournament. The Golden Knights (1-1) will participate in the tournament’s third-place contest at 3 p.m. today against Marshall Fundamental, while Maranatha (2-1)

BURBANK — With just a couple of weeks left in summer league competition for the Holy Family girls’ basketball team, anything that it can learn will be of big help. That’s the way Holy Family second-year Coach Ernest Siy will approach it after the Gaels came within one victory of qualifying for the CIF playoffs last February. “We have some new players, and as long as we steadily improve, we will be OK,” Siy said following Holy Family’s 39-28 loss to Maranatha on Tuesday afternoon in a Providence High Summer League contest.

PASADENA — It took the Flintridge Prep football team only 18 seconds of the opening period to go up by six, courtesy of quarterback Joe Farewell's 80-yard touchdown pass to Alex Clayton, against host Maranatha in the teams' Saturday matinee. Less than two minutes of game clock later the Rebels were already trailing by one in what would become a theme of the Rebels' 42-12 loss. "Both teams made a lot of mistakes in the first half," Rebels tailback Zachary Goldstein said.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — On the court together for the first time since early December, the duo expected to lead the Flintridge Prep girls’ basketball team to another Prep League championship clicked. Since sophomore guard Megan Musashi and senior guard Courtney Robinson each suffered injuries on Dec. 7, the two have been limited to a combined six practices. They both returned to action Tuesday night in a big way. Musashi finished with a game-high 26 points and Robinson added 20 to ignite host Flintridge Prep to a 73-53 nonleague victory.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — If points were awarded for strong defense and number of shots attempted, the Flintridge Prep boys' soccer team would have won Wednesday's nonleague match against Maranatha by a decisive margin. The Rebels held their opponent scoreless, while firing 21 shots in the direction of the Minutemen goal, but ultimately left the Glendale Sports Complex with a scoreless tie. "I think we outplayed [Maranatha] in a lot of areas today, but that's not good enough anymore and the kids know that — we've gotta finish," first-year Prep Coach Esteban Chavez said.

LA CAÑADA - How big an impact the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy softball team will make within the competitive Mission League may very well center on how much the squad treats those contests as anything other than league play. That's because the Tologs continued their strong nonleague run with a 10-5 victory over visiting Maranatha on Thursday afternoon in a game in which Flintridge Sacred Heart scored in five of six innings and took advantage of six Minutemen errors. “The girls played well today and if you would have told me at the beginning of the season that we'd be 8-2, I wouldn't have believed it,” said Flintridge Sacred Heart Coach Kirk Nishiyama, whose team improved to 8-1 in nonleague games this season and 8-2 overall.

LA CAÑADA - Maranatha High clearly held the advantage in size and experience when it took the court with the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team Saturday afternoon. While the Minutemen were busy piecing together a group of talented new faces and transfers under first-year coach Tim Tucker, Rebels Coach Garrett Ohara used the game as a tryout of sorts for the varsity squad. Only one of five Rebels set to return from last year's group took the floor - Robert Cartwright - and the new-look Minutemen took advantage.

After falling just shy of a Pacific League championship the past three years, one could argue the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team would be the early favorite heading into the 2014 season. The league found itself in a wave of change this offseason, as Pasadena - the nine-time reining champion - had its coach of 18 years, Tim Tucker, step down and accept an open position at Maranatha in March. Even without the All-Area Player of the Year in Cole Currie, it appeared the Falcons were in the strongest position to not only take league but make another run in the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs with a trio of key returners.

It might be baseball season in Southern California, but there was no shortage of big basketball news this week, as the coach of one of the area's winningest programs switched schools to join a nearby program. Maranatha announced the hiring of Pasadena High School's longtime head coach Tim Tucker on Tuesday, the same day that Minutemen coach Tim Godley announced his resignation. Tucker led the Bulldogs to nine straight Pacific League championships and collected four CIF Southern Section titles both as a player and a coach, most recently in 2011-2012.

PASADENA - After matching Flintridge Prep bucket for bucket for most of the second half, the Maranatha High boys' basketball team seemed just a few stops away from possibly making Thursday night's nonleague meeting a close finish. Instead, the key stops down the stretch were made by the Rebels, who made sure their double-digit lead stayed secure by holding the Minutemen scoreless for a key three-minute span late in the fourth quarter and held on for a comfortable 70-59 win. “The key to that stretch, or part of it, is when our offense executes it doesn't allow some of those transition things and we get able to set our defense,” said Prep Coach Garrett Ohara, whose team was led by 18 points and five assists from point guard Robert Cartwright.

The mild Crown City rivals opened the regular season with a back-and-forth affair secured over the final two sets by the Cubs in a 10-8 nonleague victory at the Arroyo Seco Racquet Club. “This win felt really good.

PASADENA - With the Maranatha High boys' tennis team potentially in position to play two playoff matches in as many days, it embraced the challenge. The Minutemen entered the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs fresh off finishing second in the Olympic League and with several players performing well in the league tournament last week. More importantly, they appeared to be well conditioned. Maranatha used its physical preparation as an advantage en route to a convincing 13-5 win against visiting Nogales in a wild-card match at Muir High.
