GLENDALE — Vito “Casper” Gasparyan hasn’t dwelt upon the second career loss he picked up in his previous fight.

GLENDALE — On the road to mixed-martial-arts stardom that Glendale’s Karen Darabedyan and Sevak Magakian hope they are traveling, Saturday evening’s Call to Arms I event is likely to provide a turning point in their young careers. Both will go toe-to-toe with experienced opponents on the undercard of an event featuring a slew of big-name fighters at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, a stage bigger than either has fought on in North America. “This is the biggest event I’ve fought on,” said Magakian, 22, who brings a 6-2 record into his fight with Harold Lucambio (4-4)

Short and simple might very well be the safest prediction in regard to tonight’s Flintridge Prep-Ontario Christian football game. The CIF Southern Section East Valley Division first-round game — which takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Ontario Christian — features two teams that run the ball as often as possible. “We could be out of there early,” joked Rebels Coach Perry Skaggs of how fast the game could go with both squads’ clock-draining approaches.

ONTARIO — It was likely far from the ending that the Flintridge Prep football team had imagined for its resurgent 2007 season, but one that seemed fated from nearly the very start of Friday’s CIF Southern Section East Valley first-round playoff game. Prep’s opponent, host Ontario Christian, wasted no time in establishing both a dominant rushing attack and an equally effective defense against the run. It was an equation that eventually resulted in a 46-17 defeat for the Rebels.

GLENDALE — When Alberto Crane returns to the cage on Sunday night, he will simply be returning to the office, according to him. Nonetheless, it will be a return he has been waiting anxiously to make. “I am looking forward to it, but, at the same time, it’s just another day at the office,” said Crane, a Glendale mixed martial arts fighter. “I’m just gonna go out there and have fun.” Crane will face off with Albert Rios on Sunday at the Ontario Citizens Business Bank Arena in the main event for CalledOut MMA II. A Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt, the 33-year-old Crane was originally supposed to square off with fellow black belt and submission ace, Wander Braga, in November.

Amid national discussions about possible gun control initiatives, gun shows across the Southland have been reporting record traffic, prompting early concerns in Glendale that a similar event scheduled for March could also attract the same attention. Add to that the fact that the upcoming Glendale Gun Show on the weekend of March 2 could be the last on city-owned property, and city commissioners this week said officials should prepare for the worst. “We're talking about a doubling [of attendees]

For more than 80 minutes of Thursday's CIF Southern Section Division VI first-round game, the Flintridge Prep boys' soccer team played top-seeded Ontario Christian even on the scoreboard and, if you ask Rebels Coach Matt Bowden, even outplayed the Knights for most of the match. But, although overtime seemed imminent as regulation wound down, Prep's upset bid and season died in the waning ticks of injury time when Ontario Christian forward Cody Catano scored on a quick counter-attack goal for a 2-1 win. "It was a great effort, but unfortunately we just fell short," said Prep Coach Matt Bowden, whose team advanced to the first round with a 3-2 wild-card win over Yucca Valley on Tuesday.

GLENDALE — A one-goal halftime lead didn't figure to be enough, so the members of the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team planned to raise their level of play in their quest for a tournament title. It's the style of play the Rebels adhere to under Flintridge Prep Coach Esteban Chavez and it paid off Thursday afternoon thanks to a big effort from their top player. Flintridge Prep received three goals from Brooke Elby and one from Kaelin King to record a 4-0 victory against Alta Loma in the championship match of the Ontario Christian Christmas Tournament.
