NORTHEAST GLENDALE — In retrospect, it was one of the biggest plays of the game, but there wasn’t much fanfare in the Flintridge Prep baseball team’s dugout following the final out recorded in the top of a disastrous sixth inning Saturday night. The popup to first base induced by Rebels reliever Ian Lee-Chang with the bases loaded was significant in that it kept the game going — another Oakwood run would have given the Gorillas a 10-run lead and put the mercy rule into effect, ending the game on the spot.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — There were times on Friday afternoon when the Hoover High baseball team’s pitching or defense gave Oakwood a chance to get back in the teams’ game at Hoover. But the Tornadoes bats rarely faltered and never failed to keep them on top right up until the end of a 12-9 nonleague win. “The kids hit the ball great today,” Hoover first-year Coach Joe Cotti said. “You’ve got to use the entire field and not try to yank everything out of the ballpark.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Literally and figuratively, it was a game that the Providence High girls' soccer team just couldn't lose. Saturday morning's Liberty League opponent Oakwood was short-handed, fielding only seven players, presenting a golden opportunity for Providence to pick up some valuable league points and get closer to realizing its playoff aspirations. The Pioneers took care of business, defeating the Gorillas, 2-0, at the Glendale Sports Complex. "We needed the points to get into playoffs," Providence Coach Kordo Doski said.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD — Going up against top-notch competition has been the norm this season for the Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team. Saturday proved to be no different when the Rebels, who are currently ranked No. 8 in the CIF Southern Section Division V rankings, squared-off against No. 4-ranked Oakwood. It was the lower-seed Rebels who ended up getting the best of the host Gorillas, winning the nonleague match, 25-21, 25-18, 28-30, 26-24. "If my team is playing on the top of our game, we can beat any team in our division," said Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie, whose team has already battled seven of the division's top-10 teams.

BURBANK - It didn't take too long for the members of the Hoover High boys' basketball team to respond from a tough defeat. The Tornadoes simply went back to concentrating on playing tenacious defense and capitalizing on fast-break opportunities. Hoover used both components in large doses Tuesday to record a convincing 84-55 victory against Oakwood in a consolation game of the 25th annual Paul Sutton Tip-Off Classic at Providence High. The Tornadoes began the tournament Monday with a season-opening 67-62 defeat against Malibu.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Opponents still don't have an answer for Jenna Schachtner. Oakwood couldn't figure out how to get on base against the Flintridge Prep softball pitcher on Tuesday and neither could Providence on Thursday. Two days after throwing a perfect game with 13 strikeouts in an abbreviated five-inning outing against Oakwood, Schachtner was masterful yet again. -- BOX SCORE -- -- Flintridge Prep 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 -- 2 7 0 Providence 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 -- 0 0 2 -- -- Flintridge Prep IP H R ER BB K Schachtner 7 0 0 0 0 17 -- -- Providence IP H R ER BB K Valdes 2.2 1 0 0 1 3 Biggs 4.1 6 2 2 0 3 Totals 7 7 2 2 1 6 -- -- WP-- Schachtner (2-0)

PASADENA — It took a half of basketball — and a bit of a tongue-lashing from Coach Kenny Fisher at halftime — before the Flintridge Prep girls’ team finally woke up. Once it did, it was Oakwood that paid the price. Led by a red-hot performance from Megan Musashi, the Rebels broke away from a halftime deadlock with 30 third-quarter points to roll to a 65-46 victory against the Gorillas in the opening round of the Pasadena Poly Girls Basketball Tournament.

BURBANK ? Prepared to face Flintridge Prep, Alex Knopper admitted he was a bit scared. There have been plenty of big matches that Knopper, a standout senior outside hitter for Providence, has shown some apprehension. Most of those moments came during postseason contests. Knopper managed to overcome his jitters Friday, as he recorded a match-high nine kills to lead the Pioneers to a 25-17, 25-17 victory against Flintridge Prep in a quarterfinal match of the 13th annual Providence Tournament.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - A tie felt a lot more like a win for the Oakwood High boys' soccer team when it faced Glendale Adventist Academy at the Glendale Sports Complex Wednesday. That's because Oakwood's equalizing goal came just before the final whistle, as both teams finished level at 2-2. It was a tough pill for the Cougars to swallow after they'd controlled most of the second half, but gave up several late scoring chances. Still, Glendale Adventist Coach Joe Sanchez said he's already seen improvement from his squad in its second game.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — For all but two members of Glendale Adventist Academy's boys' volleyball team, Tuesday afternoon's match wasn't just their season opener, it was the first match of their playing careers. And while energy and enthusiasm kept the Cougars competitive in the first game of their nonleague match with the Oakwood Gorillas, inexperience and lack of fundamentals showed overall in the 25-19, 25-7, 25-12 home loss. "They came out with a lot of confidence and adrenaline," Cougars Coach Ken Vigilia said.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Two nonleague matches into the season, the Flintridge Prep boys’ tennis team has learned that it is, at the very least, balanced between its singles and doubles factions. After riding the wave of a singles sweep to a season-opening win over host Burbank on Monday, the defending Prep League co-champion Rebels profited from a sweep by their doubles on Wednesday to defeat visiting Oakwood, 15-3, at the Scholl Canyon Tennis Center. “I think we played better today in doubles,” said Prep Coach Ron Catano, whose team defeated Burbank, 14-4.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Nothing went right for the members of the Flintridge Prep boys’ soccer team. If they tried to connect with a pass, the ball would skip past them on the rain-slicked turf. If they tried to stay warm, they had no such luck. Flintridge Prep yielded a pair of first-half goals in a 2-0 nonleague loss to St. Genevieve on Wednesday afternoon in bone-chilling temperatures at the Glendale Sports Complex. Rain fell throughout the 80-minute match while a biting wind nipped at the athletes, who wore the customary shorts and short-sleeved shirts.
