NORTHEAST GLENDALE — When Crescenta Valley High baseball Coach Phil Torres saw his team’s draw for its CIF Southern Section Division II wild-card game, he knew Tuesday’s contest would be an arduous one at that. He knew the Falcons would see the best that Northwood had to offer in the form of starting pitcher Zack Weiss. And, indeed, the Falcons got the right-hander’s best, as he was borderline spectacular for seven innings, enjoying a lead throughout as the Timberwolves jumped all over CV pitching from the start and never looked back, while Weiss never allowed a CV offensive to move forward.

GLENDALE — With respective second-place league finishes behind them, Flintridge Prep and Crescenta Valley High’s baseball teams now enter the chaos and great unknown that is the CIF Southern Section postseason. The Rebels will travel, and travel far, to face Capistrano Valley Christian in the opening round of the Division VI playoffs on Friday, while the Falcons will host Northwood today in a Division II wild-card game at 4:15 p.m. at Stengel Field. While Prep was one of seven second-place squads to receive first-round placement in Division VI, which features 11 wild-card games, CV was not fortunate enough to be selected as one of four second-place squads in the first round in Division II, but is, instead, in one of the division’s mind-spinning 16 wild-card games.

GLENDALE — Having entered the CIF Southern Section Division I boys’ soccer playoffs with a sub-.500 record as the fourth-place squad from the Mission League and with the tournament’s third seed opposing it, to some, perhaps many, St. Francis’ opening-round win on the road against West Torrance, which had just one prior loss, was an upset of large proportions. To longtime Golden Knights Coach Glen Appels, however, there was nothing magical about it. He contends his team has played an arduous schedule, both in nonleague and league play, and hung with the best all season long.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Storied a tradition as the St. Francis High soccer program possesses, the aspect of success on the soccer field is only rivaled by dramatics, particularly in the postseason. Once more, the Golden Knights took themselves and their fans on a playoff rollercoaster ride, with a second consecutive comeback foray into overtime. Unfortunately for St. Francis and its faithful, the dramatics ended with disappointment, as the Golden Knights fell in sudden-death overtime to visiting Northwood, 3-2, in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs on Tuesday afternoon at Friedman Field.

The Laguna Beach High football team had a different game plan for last Friday's Pacific Coast League opener against Northwood. When you meet a program as sound as the one found at Northwood, a team must be thoroughly prepared. You might say that Laguna entered the game against the favored Timberwolves on a wing and a prayer. Actually, it was the wing T, an offense coach Jimmy Nolan installed for the game. "I took a gamble," Nolan said. "I thought I could catch Northwood with the element of surprise by installing the wing T. This plan backfired on us, and we were completely shut down all first half, and it put our defense in horrible position again and again.

Seldom have two plays formed more poignant parentheses around the story of one football game as the ones that opened and, virtually closed Northwood High's 21-0 Pacific Coast League victory over visiting Corona del Mar Thursday night. On the first play from scrimmage, Northwood linebacker Mark Bentrott hammered a CdM ball carrier, forcing a fumble. The Timberwolves' Michael Ciaccio scooped up the loose ball and sprinted 19 yards for a touchdown. Alex Metskas kicked the first of his three conversions and the hosts led, 7-0, with only eight seconds elapsed at Irvine High.

A bye week never looked so good. Having opened the 2005 Pacific Coast League race against the two teams that have dominated the league in the last five years, the Laguna Beach High football team is in the midst of a 12-day break between games. The Breakers are far from idle, however, as they prepare for a Thursday league clash with Corona del Mar at Newport Harbor High. Laguna also is using the time to regroup following losses to Northwood and Tesoro, the defending league and CIF-Southern Section Division IX champion.

For the Corona del Mar High football team, the light at the end of the Pacific Coast League tunnel is, in fact, obscured by an oncoming train. The league schedule forced the Sea Kings (3-3, 1-1 in league) to deal with PCL powers Northwood and Tesoro in the first half of their six-game league campaign. The latter half of that assignment, which began with a 21-0 road setback against Northwood Oct. 6, will occur Friday at Tesoro at 7 p.m. Tesoro (4-1, 1-0)
