For three quarters of Friday afternoon's CIF Southern Section Division IV second-round playoff game, the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team seemed content to trade runs of momentum, and goals, with visiting Santa Ynez at Burbank High. Once the fourth quarter began, however, the exchange became one-sided, as the Pirates scored four unanswered goals to claim a 12-9 upset victory. "I think the key to success, especially when you get to the playoffs, is being able to score when you have opportunities," said Crescenta Valley Coach Pete Loporchio, who led the Falcons (16-9)

GLENDALE — Here's one thing worth noting about the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team: They don't do things the easy way. It first had to endure a four-hour bus ride and then prepare for its first CIF postseason match in exactly six years after needing to win a play-in game against rival Muir on Friday. The wait — and extra work — proved to be worth it following a grueling three-hour match in Santa Barbara County. Crescenta Valley opened the postseason by defeating Santa Ynez, 1-1 (6-5 on penalty kicks)

Hamlet Nalbandyan The result wasn't a surprise, and neither was La Canada's effort. The Spartans were heavy underdogs in their CIF Southern Section Division IV second round boys' soccer match at Santa Ynez, so the fact that they were eliminated, 2-1, by the No. 2 seed wasn't anything groundbreaking. But like they've done all year, the Spartans showed tremendous resiliency in the contest, despite traveling more than 130 miles. La Canada (16-7-5)

GLENDALE — Perhaps nothing could be better than taking a 150-mile bus ride north and stopping at a Santa Barbara cafe on an unseasonably warm winter day. The Glendale High girls’ water polo team found something even more to its liking after reaching its final destination — a playoff victory. Glendale received a team-high five goals from Kristina Terzyan and four from Katren Ter-Oganesyan to record a lopsided 14-5 win on Tuesday against Santa Ynez in a CIF Southern Section Division IV wild-card match at Lompoc Aquatic Center.

Here's one thing worth noting about the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team: They don't do things the easy way. After losing to Arcadia in the Pacific League finale and then finding out that Pasadena pulled an upset and beat Muir the same day, Lilavois and his team got another chance at defeating Muir in a one-game playoff at Crescenta Valley last Friday. Led by Tade Mirzain's hat trick, the Falcons earned a berth to the CIF playoffs with a 3-0 victory over the Muir Mustangs.

SANTA YNEZ - Art Hovhannisyan arrived upon the doorstep of becoming a title contender with devastation, looking to knock the door down. But former World Boxing Assn. lightweight champion Miguel Acosta knocked right back, making for a pulse-pounding lightweight main event at Showtime's Shobox card at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez on Friday night. But it was Hovhannisyan's early brilliance and late fortitude that brought the fighter known as the Lionheart the biggest victory of his career, as he defeated Acosta via split decision to remain undefeated.

GLENDALE — Tino Morfin figured one job interview would be sufficient. He never counted on receiving two concerning different positions in the same school district. Morfin did and he’s awfully glad that he’ll hold down two separate jobs at Crescenta Valley High beginning in the fall. Morfin will teach Spanish and serve as the new boys’ soccer coach. He succeeds Randy Lilavois, who taught English at Crescenta Valley before resigning in early June so he could concentrate on obtaining his master’s degree.
