BURBANK - While the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team clinched at least a share of the Pacific League championship Tuesday night, Burroughs learned plenty about itself with the playoffs looming for both programs. Having each already locked up playoff berths in CIF Southern Section Division V, the Falcons and Indians met in a semifinal match of the league tournament at Burbank High looking to meet their own goals. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley outscores Burroughs girls' water polo Elissa Arnold finished with a match-high seven goals to power top-seeded Crescenta Valley to a 22-6 victory and set up a championship match against second-seeded Glendale at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the same venue.

LA CRESCENTA - There was no denying a sense of embarrassment and disappointment many members of the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team felt in the aftermath of a loss to Pacific League rival Pasadena on Jan. 17. The Falcons were outmuscled and outscored by two goals in a defeat that players and coaches were referencing before and after the team's rematch at Crescenta Valley on Friday afternoon. The Falcons showed championship fight in cunningly balancing the line between being aggressive and out of control in a momentous 4-1 victory over the previously unbeaten Bulldogs in a match that included five yellow cards and two fan ejections.

GLENDALE - Despite being without two of its starters because of injury, the Glendale High boys' basketball team looked to persevere. Glendale found itself pitted against Arcadia for the third time in less than two months with the Nitros having won the first two meetings. Unfortunately for Glendale, it couldn't complete the series sweep as it suffered a 71-69 Pacific League home defeat Wednesday. Glendale's Eddie Uluchyan drove to the basket for a game-tying layup, but the shot hit the bottom of the rim just before the buzzer sounded.

LA CRESCENTA - Once trailing by as many as 15 points, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team launched an impressive and perhaps season-defining rally. The Falcons outscored visiting Burroughs by 16 points in the fourth quarter and nearly matched their own offensive production from three previous periods in a 66-58 victory in Pacific League play Monday evening. Crescenta Valley (16-8, 8-2 in league) maintained its second-place standing in league with the victory, as the Falcons remained on the heels of first-place Pasadena (14-8, 9-1)

PASADENA - No team so far this Pacific League boys' soccer season has been able to hang a loss on Pasadena High, although Glendale came as close as anybody earlier this season when it tied the Bulldogs. In the rematch, this time on the Bulldogs' home pitch, Glendale fell into a two-goal hole early on and was never able to climb out. Pasadena won, 2-1, Monday afternoon to stay unbeaten in league and protect its spot on top of the Pacific League standings tied with Burroughs. “The thing is we started very bad,” second-year Glendale coach Artur Aghasyan said.

LA CRESCENTA - There was something else besides a sore hamstring that's bothered Justin Wright lately. While looking to regain a full range of mobility, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer player also sought to break out of a mini scoring drought. Wright accomplished the feat, as he notched two goals and one assist - all in the first half - to propel host Crescenta Valley to a 4-1 Pacific League win against rival Arcadia on Friday. “It's been frustrating with the injury, but I really wanted to break out of the slump,” said Wright, who hadn't scored a goal in Crescenta Valley's three previous matches.

ARCADIA - Season after season across all sports, one could argue that the Crescenta Valley High-Arcadia rivalry is the most consistent in terms of Pacific League importance and magnitude in the arena of girls' soccer. Though, by its traditionally high expectations, Crescenta Valley has struggled thus far this season, there was no lack of intensity or effort on Friday afternoon at Arcadia Park when the Falcons faced the host Apaches. Crescenta Valley brought its best effort-wise, but Arcadia, the defending league champion and the odds-on favorite for the title this season, simply made the most of its opportunities in coming away with a 2-0 victory - it's third in a row in the rivalry, all by shutout.

LA CRESCENTA - Having reached the midway juncture of Pacific League play, Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball Coach Jason Perez felt satisfaction. After Crescenta Valley recorded a 49-42 league home victory against rival Arcadia on Friday night, Perez and the Falcons remained one game behind Burroughs for first place in league. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley records league home victory against rival Arcadia “I like where we are and I feel like we are in good shape,” said Perez, whose team limited the Apaches to six fourth-quarter points to improve to 15-6, 6-1 in league.
