GLENDALE - It appeared that the Crescenta Valley High football team would play the same schedule this season as it had the previous four. A last-minute change scrapped those plans, forcing the Falcons to scramble to find a new opening-week opponent. In recent seasons, the Falcons have opened their season with an intersectional contest against Verdugo Hills. The schools are separated by less than five miles, providing the teams an easy bus trip to the respective home venues and an intersectional rivalry.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — With one out in the bottom of the seventh inning of a tie game, the fate of the Flintridge Prep softball season lay on the bat of first baseman Rachel Simon. The Rebels had runners on second and third in an opening-round CIF Southern Section Division VI playoff game against visiting Santa Paula. On a 2-1 count, Simon smacked a single through the middle of the infield, driving home Ashley Kim, and propelling Flintridge Prep to a 2-1 walk-off win Thursday.

SANTA PAULA - On a night in which William Wang weaved his way through the Santa Paula High defense for 260 yards rushing, it was within the grasp of teammate Porter Hansen that the Crescenta Valley football team ultimately found a sigh of relief. Hansen secured an onside kick with 1:39 left in Friday night's nonleague game, giving way to Wang, who carried the ball three final times for the last 37 yards the Falcons would need to hold off the host Cardinals for a 26-21 victory in their season opener.

Erik Boal BURBANK -- A two-minute demonstration by Errol Garnett at halftime paid dividends for the Glendale High girls' basketball team in the final minute of Friday's game against Santa Paula. Garnett, who stressed the importance of hedging on-ball screens and providing weak-side help defense when the ball moved below the free-throw line, witnessed the fruits of his labor on the Nitros' next-to-last defensive series. With Santa Paula holding for the game-winning shot, Glendale's Melina Shahverdian deflected Sara Ruiz's entry pass into the hands of teammate Sevana Danyelian, who was fouled immediately.

From her vantage point at shortstop, Flintridge Prep softball player Kelly Wang can see the frustration of opposing batters when they vacate the batter's box and then walk back to the dugout after striking out against Denise van der Goot. Wang knows from her past experiences, having faced van der Goot numerous times during practice. While Wang hasn't had much success hitting van der Goot, the same can be said for opponents. "It's just so hard to hit against her, so I understand how the other teams feel," Wang said.

Upon first look at the Crescenta Valley High football team's 2012 schedule, the most noticeable aspect is what game is not there. Absent from the schedule is the traditional nonleague showdown known as the "Battle for Foothill Blvd. " against cross-town rival St. Francis. "The biggest thing was just to change it up," said Falcons Coach Paul Schilling, whose Falcons went 6-5 last season, which included a 35-0 loss to St. Francis. "We had to do something differently. " Last year's defeat to the Golden Knights was the 10th straight in the rivalry for the Falcons, compounded by struggles at the lower levels in which Schilling said games, historically, were never close with Crescenta Valley always on the losing end. "That wasn't good for anybody," Schilling said.

In the current state of CIF Southern Section postseason baseball, not even winning a league title is a guarantee for a first-round playoff home game. In the cases of Crescenta Valley High and Flintridge Prep, both teams shared titles in their respective leagues, but, fortunately for the Falcons and Rebels, they ended up on the right end of tiebreakers and will host first-round playoff games on Friday. As released Monday by the CIF Southern Section offices, the Falcons (20-7) will host Yucaipa or Great Oak in the first round of the Division II playoffs, while the Rebels (15-8)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - It was a sigh of relief five games and one contentious second half in the making. But when all was concluded, the offensive prowess of senior running back Marro Lee and quarterback Zac Wilkerson, along with a 21-point first-quarter scoring blitz was just enough to stave off a rallying Santa Paula High, as Crescenta Valley prevailed, 40-32, to open its season with a victory and snap a five-game losing skid in the process....
