LA CRESCENTA - Not since her freshman season had Crescenta Valley High senior Sierra Rhoads experienced a CIF Southern Section playoff victory.

That changed on Thursday afternoon, as a Rhoads goal in the 33rd minute proved just enough to allow the Falcons to stave off a late-charging San Luis Obispo squad and clear their first-round hurdle to the tune of a 1-0 triumph at Crescenta Valley High in the opening round of the Division III girls' soccer playoffs.
