BURBANK - In the consolation championship of the Burroughs Summer League Wednesday against Crespi, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team came out and dominated play for the first 15 minutes, creating its share of scoring chances. Despite their efforts, the Falcons came up empty-handed. That left the door open for the Celts, who tallied the game's first goal. But that goal seemed to wake up and invigorate Crescenta Valley, as it played lock-down defense the rest of the way and the offense came through with six straight goals to notch a 6-1 victory at Luther Burbank Middle School in the consolation final of the Burroughs Summer League.

GIRLS' WATER POLO Crescenta Valley 9, Newbury Park 7: The Falcons kicked off the new season much the same way they concluded 2012-13, which is to say winning titles. Crescenta Valley scored two goals in the fourth quarter in gaining separation from host Newbury Park and won the Mistletoe Classic Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Falcons (5-0) led, 7-6, heading into the final quarter and relied on a stout defense to deny Newbury Park. Ashley Taylor and Any Aghakhanian both scored three goals apiece to pace the Falcons, who began the day with a 14-5 victory over Buena in the semifinals.

LA CRESCENTA - It would be understandable if the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team was a bit fatigued. The Falcons recently began a difficult stretch in which they play six matches in eight days. Crescenta Valley turned to Matt Ryan and Eric Keshishian on Thursday afternoon for offensive support. Ryan and Keshishian each collected one goal and one assist to lead host Crescenta Valley to a 3-2 nonleague victory against St. John Bosco. “We've been playing lots of games and some of our guys are sore,” said Crescenta Valley Coach Grant Clark, whose team improved to 5-0-1.

A season ago, Crescenta Valley High's boys' soccer team rallied on the road in the opening round of the playoffs to defeat Placentia Valencia. Once more, the Falcons found themselves in the same place, the same round and in a game with much the same, nailbiting feel. But this time around, it was Crescenta Valley that was left with the sting of a dramatic end to its season, as Valencia prevailed, 1-1 (8-7) in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs on Thursday evening.

BURBANK - After twice sustaining left-knee injuries last season, Matt Ryan is looking to get back to the basics and be creative. The Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer player suffered the injury during the midway point last season before reinjuring the knee later in the campaign. Now, he's using several summer matches as a barometer to test the knee while providing offense for the Falcons. Ryan took a step forward and finished with one goal and one assist Thursday to lead Crescenta Valley to a 6-1 win against Taft in a Burroughs High Summer League consolation match at Luther Middle School.

ARCADIA - Whether the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team will begin next week's CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs on the road or at home and in the first round or in the wild-card section will not be known until Monday's postseason pairings are released. What is of assurance for the Falcons is that they'll head into the second season with the confidence of playing some of their best ball of the year, which continued Thursday afternoon as, Crescenta Valley closed out the regular season with a 2-0 win versus Arcadia at Civic Park in Pacific League play.

GLENDALE - Glendale's High's boys' soccer team got off to the quickest of starts. Unfortunately for the Nitros, visiting Crescenta Valley matched that quick start and, as Glendale Coach Arthur Aghasyan put it, “some simple mistakes” loomed large for Glendale, most notably an own goal that provided the winning margin for the Falcons in their 3-2 Pacific League win on Tuesday afternoon at Moyse Field over the Nitros. PHOTOS: Glendale vs. Crescenta Valley boys' soccer Leading the way for Crescenta Valley was a returning starter and a reserve keeper, as goalie Adan Martinez made seven saves and Matt Ryan scored two goals and was largely responsible for the own goal in his first game back after a hamstring injury.
