GLENDALE — In a game that La Crescenta Coach Rick Marquis basically characterized as a knockdown, drag out fight, it was the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars that were the last team standing. “It was a battle, it was fantastic pitching for both sides,” said Marquis just after La Crescenta defeated host Eureka, 4-2, in the opening round of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Pacific Southwest Regional late Thursday night at Babe Ruth Field in Eureka. La Crescenta will now play Tri-Valley, the Northern California champions, at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

"We finally got the bats going," said Crescenta Valley Coach Jim Siepler, whose team lost its first two tournament games, 12-0 and 6-0, respectively. "We put up a win finally.

The following are previews of the area's upcoming high school football games this week. After what happened in the Flintridge Prep football team's zero-week opener, perhaps the best thing is for it to get away. The Rebels are taking a long road trip to Meadows High in Nevada and hope to return with their first win in tow. Prep looks to do so after a gut-wrenching 42-41 loss to Army-Navy Academy. The Rebels held a 29-10 halftime lead at Occidental College, but saw it disappear when they were outscored, 32-12, in the second half.

After transferring to Occidental College from the University of Nevada prior to the 2010 season, it took little time for Luke Collis to get comfortable in his new environment. He learned the playbook and adjusted to his new teammates. The transition was seamless until the first game of the season when the helmet from an oncoming defender struck Collis, the Occidental quarterback, flush on his right leg. There were no signs of structural damage, but Collis missed the remainder of the game and sat out the next contest while on crutches.
