Edgar Melik-Stepanyan PASADENA -- La Canada High girls' soccer Coach Phil Hacopians knows he has a inexperienced squad and it will have to adjust quickly if the Spartans want to earn a playoff berth. The Spartans have nine freshmen and only two seniors on their 2000 team. The road to the postseason didn't get any easier for La Canada Tuesday against Pasadena Polytechnic, which is ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division V. La Canada gave up two goals in the first 30 minutes and two more in the final five as it dropped to the Panthers, 4-1, at Pasadena Poly's Babcock Field.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan LOS ANGELES -- Through three Mission League matches, the St. Francis High boys' soccer team hasn't shown what it is completely capable of. The Golden Knights' offense has sagged, accounting for just three goals, and their defense has been caught off guard several times. But despite its second consecutive lackluster effort, St. Francis played to a 1-1 deadlock against host Loyola on Wednesday. "We should have done better," St. Francis Coach Glen Appels said.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- For the 12th time in 14 years, La Canada High boys' soccer Coach Louis Bilowitz remained in the spotlight as his squad captured yet another Rio Hondo League championship. Against Blair High, the Spartans fell behind by one goal early in the first half and needed a pep talk by its head coach to defeat the Vikings, 4-1, Monday at La Canada High. "We played very undisciplined in the first half," Bilowitz said.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan CRESCENTA VALLEY HIGH -- From the opening whistle to the closing, the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team dominated almost every aspect of its nonleague match against La Canada High. The Falcons spent most of the match in La Canada territory, posting 10 shots on goal. Their defense, in turn, stymied the Spartans' offense, limiting them to only one shot on goal. With this strong combination, the Falcons defeated the Spartans, 6-1, Thursday at Crescenta Valley High.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan The Glendale High girls' soccer team had heard the talk about Hoover this season. The upstart Tornadoes have one of the top players in the area in Kristal Phillips and several key role players that have put them in position to qualify for the playoffs. But the Nitros weren't impressed by the Tornadoes' play this season and didn't back down in Tuesday's Pacific League match at Hoover High. Glendale limited Phillips' touches and received a strong performance from freshman goalkeeper Vanessa Aragon in a 1-1 tie, keeping its playoff hopes alive and putting a damper on Hoover's chances.

Charles Rich Nobody endured a longer 80 minutes than Abraham Andreasyan. Andreasyan, the junior goalkeeper for the Glendale High boys' soccer team, had several things go against him: surrendering two goals and receiving a red card. That, and sloppy midfield play, amounted to Glendale dropping a 5-0 Pacific League road match to Arcadia on Tuesday. Glendale (6-4-1, 1-1 in league) and Arcadia (5-9-2, 1-2-1) were fortunate to compete on a picture-perfect day that featured 80-degree temperatures near the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley.

The Falcons boosted their rate of production dramatically over the remaining three minutes, however, tying the game on a goal by Corey Parrish and going ahead for the final score of 3-2 on a Pavle Atanackovic goal assisted by Parrish.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Getting acclimated to the speed of the varsity game hasn’t exactly been a quick process for a young Hoover High boys’ soccer team thus far this season. The Tornadoes’ soccer instincts — whether pertaining to making a timely run into open space, winning control of balls in the midfield or clearing out their own penalty box — aren’t yet up to the level of Hoover’s playoff-qualifying squads of the past two seasons.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - His coach didn't yell out instructions and his teammates didn't step forward so Eric Keshishian stepped up. One of three captains for the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team shouldered the burden in the most pressure-packed situation of the young season and in the championship game of the 18th installment of the Ralph Brandt Tournament. After Birmingham's Kevin Lineres was ruled for a handball inside of the box in the 79th minute, Keshishian, a senior, drilled a penalty kick to the lower-left side of the net, lifting the Falcons to a 1-0 victory Monday night at St. Francis' Friedman Field.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - It was just the first game of the campaign, but in terms of scoring production, the Flintridge Prep boys' soccer team was in midseason form on Tuesday against Grace Brethren. The Rebels got two goals apiece from Manny Martinez and Cole Rademacher and turned a one-goal halftime lead into a 5-2 nonleague win behind a second-half shutout at the Glendale Sports Complex. “Since last year we've been close as a team and it's carried on to this year,” Martinez said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — As is prone to happen occasionally when age-old rivals Hoover and Glendale high meet on the field of play, the tone of Friday’s Pacific League soccer game between the Tornadoes and Nitros became increasingly more temperamental than tactical. About 10 minutes before the final whistle awarded Glendale a 2-0 victory, on-field tensions that had been mounting throughout the second half came to a head in an altercation between opposing players near the Hoover sideline that brought most of both benches onto the field.

The Falcons, faced with a 2-0 deficit going into the second half of their Pacific League match against host Hoover on Jan. 27, ended up tying the contest, 2-2, thanks in large part to good defense and the head and leg of Michael Farah, who scored both CV goals. CV hosted Pasadena on Tuesday and tied the Bulldogs, 1-1. The Falcons were ahead 1-0 with seven minutes play, when Pasadena tied the score. Rigo Cardenas scored the goal for the Falcons. CV also played Glendale yesterday (Thursday)
