Edgar Melik-Stepanyan The boys' water polo match between Flintridge Prep and Palos Verdes on Friday was another nonleague contest for two programs gearing for the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs. Palos Verdes didn't play like the match was just a regular-season affair, though, playing with playoff-like intensity against a Rebel squad that's still trying to find its identity and go-to player. The Sea Kings -- tied for No. 10 in the division -- were intent on getting respect in the division, and that's exactly what they got by defeating the seventh-ranked Rebels, 10-8, at Flintridge Prep.

Hamlet Nalbandyan It was scary there for a moment, but the Flintridge Prep boys' water polo team eventually got down to business Tuesday. Facing what is basically a junior varsity squad in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs, the Rebels watched Palos Verdes score 18 seconds into the match and found themselves trailing midway through the first quarter. But Sam Vierra's squad wasn't anywhere close to being fazed. Thanks to eight consecutive goals in the first half, Flintridge Prep easily advanced to the next round after a 12-5 victory at home.

LA CRESCENTA ? Aspirations are rather lofty for the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team this season. Thus, bouncing back from a lackluster performance on Tuesday was crucial on Thursday. That's exactly what Crescenta Valley, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division VI, did, as it defeated La Serna, 13-7, at Crescenta Valley High in a nonleague match. "They needed to rebound from a pretty bad loss against Palos Verdes," said Falcons Coach Jan Sakonju, referring to his team's 10-5 defeat on Tuesday to the fifth-ranked team in Division IV. "They came out hard, they were a lot more focussed."

The Crescenta Valley Soccer Club Under 19 Women's Team began its run at the prestigious Coast Soccer League Gold level title last weekend with a split of the league openers. After a tremendous inaugural season last year as a Silver Elite team, which saw Stephanie Villa's team post a 17-1 record and win the Silver Elite West title, Villa's players found the going slightly tougher in the Gold level league. Things looked promising in the league opener, as the CVSC girls pounded the PVSC Breakers' squad in an away match in Palos Verdes, 5-0. Caity Seggese started the scoring with a goal in the 36th minute off of a corner kick by Lizzy Villa.
