After a successful opening on the road last week, the Crescenta Valley High boys? and girls? swimming teams brought their dual-meet show home Tuesday and were once again victorious. Behind double winners Sharif Alaoui and Vinh Doan and three winning relay teams, the Falcons boys turned in an impressive nonleague 115-55 win over Saugus, while the girls? 92-78 edging of the Centurions had a bit more suspense. ?We?re still really trying to figure out where we can squeeze points out of,?

Erik Boal Despite being outsized at every position, they fought and hustled and scrapped their way to a three-point deficit at halftime. And despite being without leading scorer Jeanine Deno for more than half of Monday night's game, the remaining members of the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team -- led by the early hot hand of Natasha Belou -- played Saugus to a tie game with 5:29 left in the third quarter. But for all their hard work and effort, the Falcons couldn't sustain such a high level of intensity and couldn't shoot with enough efficiency to keep pace with the Centurions down the stretch as they fell, 51-35, in a nonleague game at home.

LA CRESCENTA ? A couple of close plays at home plate didn't go in their favor and the winning hit tipped off the outstretched glove of the second baseman in the last inning. The tough luck gave no reason for the members of the Crescenta Valley High softball team to sulk after the Falcons suffered a 2-1 nonleague home loss to CIF Southern Section Division I contender Saugus on Wednesday. Crescenta Valley dropped to 4-4 this season, with three of those defeats coming by one run against Canyon Country Canyon, Burbank and Saugus, all of whom compete in the tough Foothill League.

SAUGUS ? Two excellent teams, two staunch defenses, two frustrated offenses, a lot of physical play, some controversial officiating and a boisterous crowd on both sides of the field added up to a nail-biting CIF Southern Section Division II girls? soccer quarterfinal match. And, when it all ended, it was a throw-in that was, quite simply, the difference in Crescenta Valley High?s season concluding and host Saugus? continuing. Centurions sophomore Jillian Allen, whose long throw plagued the Falcons all match long, let loose on a fortuitous throw-in that the Crescenta Valley defense could not clear and Saugus?

This year's Saugus Shoot Out Tournament has not been a very memorable one for the Crescenta Valley boys' varsity basketball team. Since opening their season on Nov. 29 in the Saugus Tournament, the Falcons have gone 1-3. CV will take a short breather before competing in the San Fernando Valley Invitational on Dec. 19. In a Saugus Tournament contest last Saturday, Ventura Buena laid out the Falcons, 57-39. Buena took an early 12-9 lead at the end of the first quarter, but CV roared back to grab a 20-18 lead at the half.

Erik Boal The St. Francis High football team forced eight turnovers against Arcadia and six against Pasadena. The Golden Knights limited Crescenta Valley's high-octane offense to just 14 points, and yielded just seven to Burroughs. But for Mark Gibbons' defensive unit, its finest hour was Friday night. Leading by only three points at halftime, the Golden Knights responded by holding Saugus to just 38 yards of total offense in the second half, as they posted a 16-0 nonleague victory at Friedman Field to improve to 5-0 for the first time since 1999.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — The St. Francis High boys’ basketball team learned that folding again in the second half would no longer be an option. The Golden Knights learned that lesson during a painful 13-point loss to Village Christian on Thursday in a pool-play game of the La Cañada Holiday Classic at La Cañada High. St. Francis found itself in a similar situation Friday night, but learned from their mishap in a big way. Senior guard Malik Speed finished with a game-high 29 points and senior guard Dietrich Riley added 11 points and 14 rebounds Friday to spark St. Francis to a 71-59 victory against Saugus.

GLENDALE — In a season marked by uncharted territory, it is a familiar opponent that stands in front of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team. With a season full of first-time highlights, the Tologs are looking to advance to the quarterfinal round of the postseason for only the second time in program history, but standing in their way is Saugus, as the host Centurions welcome Sacred Heart for a CIF Southern Section Division II second-round match at 3 p.m. today.

It would certainly be an arduous task for the St. Francis High football team to top the dramatic fashion in which it defeated Saugus the last time the two schools met ? a contest voted the area Game of the Year. Whether or not tonight?s 7:30 p.m. game at Friedman Field comes down to last-second heroics ? as it did when Neil Favor kicked a 41-yard field goal with no time left to give the Golden Knights a 30-27 road win over the Centurions nearly a year ago to the day ? St. Francis will simply be looking for any way to maintain its edge in what has become one of its more stirring nonleague rivalries.

SAUGUS — Through the initial four matches of the 2010 season, the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team's defense has been tough to beat. On one occasion Wednesday afternoon, the Falcons were beat and it led to a second consecutive loss, but while the goal given up in the 1-0 loss to host Saugus was the most tangible sign of defeat, it's clear that Crescenta Valley's largest problems lie within its offense. "We've tried 100 different things," said first-year Falcons Coach Jorden Schulz, whose team dropped to 1-2-1 on the season, having been shut out in its last three contests.

LA CRESCENTA - Two games into the season, the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team is still searching for its first victory. Perhaps more importantly, the Falcons are still looking for cohesion and consistency. “It's our second game, but these kids have been playing soccer for eight years,” said Falcons Coach Jorden Schulz following her team's 2-1 nonleague home loss to Saugus on Friday afternoon. “There's going to be some give and take, but soccer is soccer, the game's the same.” Junior Courtney Ianello broke loose for the Falcons' first goal of the season in the 56th minute, but it wasn't enough to overcome a two-goal halftime deficit as Crescenta Valley (0-2)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - There's been a respected and healthy rivalry that's developed the past several seasons between the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Saugus High girls' soccer teams. The Tologs and Centurions have crossed paths in the playoffs en route to winning CIF Southern Section championships. They've also proven adept at playing against each other at a high caliber in the regular season. That proved to be the case Friday, when Saugus and Flintridge Sacred Heart met in the championship match of the Los Tacos Holiday Festival.

LA CRESCENTA - While the Falcons' star swimmers all returned this season, Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming Coach Jan Sakonju said at the onset of the season that the emergence of role players would be the key to scoring enough points to win a CIF title in May. If Friday's nonleague home dual-meet win over Saugus is any indication, the Falcons are making quick strides in that department. Junior Young Tae Seo and senior Louis Wojciechowski made only a brief appearance at the onset of the meet and fellow CIF mainstay Harrison Thai was absent altogether, but Crescenta Valley still rolled to a 110-61 win. "It was a good opportunity for other guys to take over in the last two-thirds of the meet and it was also an opportunity for us to show our depth," said Sakonju, who got a pair of wins in the 200-yard freestyle (1 minute 43.05 seconds)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Looking far removed from the team that won a CIF Southern Section Division I championship a season ago and dazzled its faithful en route to the greatest girls' soccer campaign in area history earlier this year, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's soccer squad figuratively limped to the finish at its annual Los Tacos Holiday Festival on Wednesday afternoon at the Glendale Sports Complex. Handed consecutive shutouts for the first time since December of 2008, the Tologs fell in pool-play Wednesday morning to Saugus, 1-0, before coming up on the short end in a third-place match against West Ranch, 0-0 (4-2)

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - The Glendale High boys' basketball team surrendered eight three-point field goals in its first-round game of the La Cañada Holiday Classic - a 70-49 loss to Saugus Tuesday. Four of the eight came in the second quarter, where the Nitros were outscored, 20-7, by the Centurions, which quickly turned a tightly contested first quarter into an 11-point advantage for Saugus. "Our transition defense gave up too many layups at the rim, and open shots," said Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress, whose squad fell to 2-3 on the season.

LA CRESCENTA - This year's season-opening slate of games against Foothill League competition has begun to feel rather similar to last year's for the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team in some ways, namely the offense's struggle to score goals and, by extension, win games. But whereas stingy defense allowed the Falcons to hang tough against Canyon, Saugus and West Ranch in a pair of one-goal losses and a tie in 2010, even the Falcons' customary strong suit - shutting down opposing offenses - has been largely absent over the first two games of 2011.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — It’s likely that few, if any, gathered at Sartoris Field on Friday afternoon gave Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy’s soccer team a chance with seemingly only 40 minutes left in its season. Down two goals to the defending CIF champion — the very same team that had ended the Tologs’ season a year prior — Sacred Heart had been dominated to a degree that had not occurred previously this season. “All that was going through our minds was how are we gonna get through this,” said Tologs sophomore forward Breeana Koemans.
