PASADENA - The Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team was all that stood between Muir and an outright Pacific League championship on Tuesday. While the Falcons proved to be an immovable object for much of the back-and-forth game, they couldn't hold back the Mustangs from going on a big run to start the fourth quarter. And in the end, although the game tightened up once again down the stretch, they could only watch as Jelani Mitchell sealed host Muir's 66-63 win from the free throw line.

LOS ANGELES — Despite ending the regular season on a three-game losing skid, the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team looked to wipe the slate clean entering its opening-round playoff contest Thursday night. The late tailspin knocked the Falcons out of contention for an automatic playoff berth, leading them to apply for an at-large berth in the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs. Crescenta Valley received a playoff spot, but many of the things that led directly to their late-season swoon carried over into the postseason.

MANHATTAN BEACH — All of the CIF and state championship banners on the wall didn’t intimidate the members of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy volleyball team. However, the Tologs found out quickly how good Mira Costa is and why it earned that plethora of titles. “We came in with the mindset to not be intimidated,” said Sacred Heart senior middle blocker Mary Schroeder, whose team suffered a 25-6, 25-16, 25-11 road loss to third-seeded Mira Costa on Thursday night in CIF Southern Section Division 1-AA second-round match.

PASADENA — The Hoover High football team entered Friday’s Pacific League game still searching for its first win of the season and facing the daunting task of playing Muir, the defending league champion and fourth-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Southeast Division. With sizable advantages on the lines and the skill positions, the Mustangs were expected to easily defeat the Tornadoes. And that’s exactly what they did. Hoover was no match for Muir’s potent offense, as the Mustangs ran away with a 47-0 victory at home.

Trailing, 27-0, in a extension of a season in which little had gone right, the Costa Mesa High football team gathered its collective feet Thursday night against visiting Huntington Beach. The thick, muscled legs of the linemen, as well as those thinner, fleeter ones propelling ball carriers, all seemed to settle underneath Coach Jay Johnson's teetering team. And though a 37-14 nonleague defeat was the end result, the Mustangs clearly emerged from their third setback of the season with a foundation to, perhaps, build the rest of the season upon.

The Costa Mesa High football team lost its Golden West League opener last week, but the Mustangs may have gained their offensive identity. Coach Jay Johnson's squad (0-5, 0-1 in league) will try to assert its newfound offensive confidence Friday against visiting Westminster, at 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College. Mesa, decimated by early injuries, had struggled mightily for the first 4 1/2 games of the season, scoring just three offensive touchdowns in its first 18 quarters.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on viewpoint, history was with both the Muir and Hoover high football teams in Friday evening's Pacific League contest at Moyse Field. Muir, which entered on a three-game losing streak, resurrected its league playoff and title chances at the expense of host Hoover by virtue of a 42-0 win. The victory improved the Mustangs' record to 3-3 overall and 1-2 in league, while Hoover dropped to 0-6 and 0-3. In winning, Muir is attempting to follow a familiar script, as the Mustangs commenced the 2009 and 2010 league seasons 0-2 only to rebound and finish 9-1 combined in league.

PASADENA - With one final possession remaining and the game in the balance, it was somewhat obvious as to where the visiting Crescenta Valley High and Muir boys' basketball teams would turn for a bucket. What was unknown was exactly how big a role a pair of Arins would play on the final two possessions. Falcons sophomore Arin Ovanessian drained a go-ahead three-pointer with 10 seconds remaining before Crescenta Valley senior guard Arin Pezeshkian played stellar defense and forced an unsuccessful counter three from Mustangs standout Dejon Williams on the last play to secure the Falcons a come-from-behind 49-47 road victory in Pacific League play Friday evening.

GLENDALE - Pandemonium erupted roughly two hours after the Glendale High boys' basketball team tipped off its latest Pacific League matchup with visiting Muir. The jubilation resulted from four overtimes and a range of emotions that saw the Nitros make clutch shot after clutch shot before finally coming out victorious, 80-77, Friday evening at Glendale High School. Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress has seen much in his tenure, but admitted his latest game brought on a first. “I have never been in a four-overtime game,” said Snodgress after the 48-minute affair.

PASADENA - The Hoover High girls' basketball team went into the gym at Muir High for a Pacific League matchup and had the chance to accomplish some rare feats against a Mustangs program that is struggling this season and has just seven players on its roster. Hoover seized the opportunity Wednesday afternoon, building a slim lead after halftime and toughing it out down the stretch to come away with a 40-37 victory. It was the Tornadoes' first win on the road in Pacific play since February of 2008.

LA CRESCENTA - In front of a near capacity crowd in its home gym, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team scored a key Pacific League victory over Muir. The Falcons were able to execute their game plan on both ends en route to an impressive 52-41 home victory on Friday evening. “Huge win,” said Falcons Coach Shawn Zargarian, who led the program to the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section playoffs and a trip to the state tournament the last two seasons. “Muir is a good team with a good tradition.

Scoring goals hasn't been an area of concern for the Glendale High boys' water polo team through the first two rounds of the playoffs. Aside from their quick-strike offense, which has tallied 39 postseason goals, the top-seeded Nitros plan to shift their focus to tightening up their defense in their quest to move into the championship match for the second straight season. Glendale will put its defensive unit to the test when it meets Walnut in a CIF Southern Section Division V semifinal match at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Mount San Antonio College.

GLENDALE - All season long, a Pacific League title has been on the mind of the Crescenta Valley High football team. So the Falcons had long been thinking about Friday night's bout with Muir. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley vs. Muir football But, for whatever reason, CV committed a host of uncharacteristic mistakes - highlighted by four turnovers (three fumbles, one interception) and nine penalties for 80 yards - in a 39-26 loss to the Mustangs at Glendale High's Moyse Field.

PASADENA - Heading into its contest with host Muir High, the Glendale football team knew it had a tough hill to climb. The Mustangs - the reigning Pacific League champions - had scored a combined 105 points in their last two games and given up just nine, so it should come as no surprise that the Nitros had their hands full. Glendale proved the latest team to be on the wrong end of a lopsided score, falling to Muir, 40-0, on Friday. In addition to the solid play of the Mustangs (4-1, 2-0 Pacific League)

GLENDALE - For nearly three quarters, the Hoover High football team stayed close to the defending Pacific League champion Muir in Thursday night's league opener. The Tornadoes' defense and the Mustangs penalties allowed Hoover to trail by just 13 points with less than a minute to play in the third quarter. PHOTOS: Hoover vs. Muir football A better performance on offense might have allowed the Tornadoes to get even closer. Hoover managed only 36 total yards in 56 plays, and allowed two scores within 52 seconds of the third and fourth quarters, as it ended up losing, 35-3, at Moyse Field.

It appears that Central Park in Santa Clarita is fast becoming a second home for the Glendale Community College cross-country program. For a second straight week, the Vaqueros trekked northwest, this time to participate in the Mustang Challenge, where the men's program took second and the women claimed fifth. “It was just a great day all-around for personal records. Jorge Serrano had a PR, Edwardo Vasquez has a PR, Alejandro Chavez had a PR and I had a PR,” Vaqueros sophomore Enrique Ramirez said.

LAS VEGAS -- A four-hour journey across state lines did not produce the desired results for the Flintridge Prep football team Saturday evening. Hopes for a first victory in the young 2013 campaign proved a mirage, as the Rebels surrendered 29 straight points in falling to the Meadows School of Las Vegas, 36-20, in nonleague play to drop to 0-2. “We might have to go back to the drawing board because this was disappointing,” Rebels Coach Antonio...
