NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Forget the beaches, mountains and any of the few remaining cool spots to relax around Southern California. The hot weather that engulfed the area throughout the week wasn't about to deter children from learning the finer points of soccer from standout athletes who have played and coached in Italy. Sacrificing a trip to the beach to improve shooting, passing and goalkeeping skills seemed to be more significant. More than 100 children, ranging from 5 to 17 years old, participated in the week-long AC Milan Junior Camp at the Glendale Sports Complex.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Part ruthlessly efficient, part gracefully balanced, the visiting Santa Barbara High boys' soccer team was totally dominant in nonleague action Saturday afternoon, taking apart St. Francis, 6-1, at Friedman Field. Whether it was stats, such as the Dons outshooting the Golden Knights, 25-11, or on-field play, as Santa Barbara doubled its first-half offensive output with four second-half goals, there wasn't much the Dons did wrong or much St. Francis could look for positively.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Ties are becoming an all too familiar and all too unsettling occurrence for the St. Francis High soccer team. On Wednesday at Friedman Field, host St. Francis once again tied its opponent, resulting in its third draw in four games played this year. This one, against Ganesha, finished at 1-1 and, with the Golden Knights outplaying the visitors for long stretches and having a chance to win for the first time with a late penalty kick, coach Glen Appels was clearly unsettled once more.

Two days ago, I had a long chat with Edgar Vazquez, a soccer guru and local businessman, at a coffee shop. Since this sport has been in the news lately in Costa Mesa, I thought I should retool my knowledge of the game, including understanding the politics hidden behind it. To begin with, I've always thought the few people who complained about the game, and the city officials who generously acquiesced to these individual's unfounded...

Hamlet Nalbandyan Loi Phan couldn't stay away from coaching for too long. After guiding the Glendale High football team to the CIF postseason for the first time since 1991, the 37-year-old will return to the sport he originally began coaching at the school. Phan will be the head coach of the Nitro boys' soccer team this winter, joining Edgar Manvelyan, who has held down the position for the past two years. Phan will be the head coach in title, but Manvelyan will still be heavily involved in the program.

LA CRESCENTA - Lisa Kang showed some grit to help keep the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team atop the Pacific League. Kang went to the net twice and was rewarded each time during a Pacific League match against visiting Burbank on Monday. “You are told to go to the net and anything can happen,” said Kang, a junior forward who scored a pair of second-half goals to lead Crescenta Valley to a 3-1 victory. “You have to be ready at all times. “The first goal hit off my nose and the second off my head.

Before the season began in early December, the La Cañada High and Flintridge Prep girls' soccer teams had common goals of challenging for their respective league championships and possibly making a long run in the postseason. It certainly helped that the Spartans and Rebels could turn to experienced players to assist in the process and meet the objectives for their respective budding teams. In the process, the trio also caught the attention of opposing coaches throughout their divisions.

A relatively youthful Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team relied on the experience and leadership of senior fullback Chelsea Johnson this past season. Johnson, one of only five upperclassmen on the Rebels' 20-player roster, did not disappoint. The linchpin of Flintridge Prep's defense, Johnson was recognized for her exploits outside of her squad in being named the Prep League's Defensive Most Valuable Player on the recently-released league awards. Johnson was one of eight Rebels lauded, but received the highest praise from her coach, Esteban Chavez.

APPLE VALLEY - Before the season began, Flintridge Prep girls' soccer Coach Esteban Chavez wasn't sure what to expect of his young team. The Rebels were in line to field a team dotted with freshmen and sophomores, sprinkled in with some juniors and seniors. Shortly after Flintridge Prep saw its season conclude Wednesday with a 4-0 road loss against Granite Hills in a CIF Southern Section Division III second-round match, Chavez praised his squad. “We came a long way in short time,” said Chavez, whose team finished 14-5-5 after placing second in the Prep League behind top-seeded Pasadena Poly.

A season ago, Crescenta Valley High's boys' soccer team rallied on the road in the opening round of the playoffs to defeat Placentia Valencia. Once more, the Falcons found themselves in the same place, the same round and in a game with much the same, nailbiting feel. But this time around, it was Crescenta Valley that was left with the sting of a dramatic end to its season, as Valencia prevailed, 1-1 (8-7) in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs on Thursday evening.
