Charles Rich PALMDALE -- They rode their senior goalkeeper for 107 minutes while attempting to make a memorable first impression. The members of the Glendale High girls' soccer team watched Sydney Scott absorb enough punishment Wednesday, thrusting her body to make timely saves for 2 1/2 hours. But Scott couldn't save Glendale, which lost, 1-0, in sudden-death overtime to host Palmdale in a CIF Southern Section Division I wild-card match. Scott finished with 27 saves for the Nitros, who made their first postseason appearance in the program's six-year history.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — It’s not that often that a summer league basketball game becomes more about winning and losing than progression and development. It’s even less often that any basketball game comes down to sudden death. But both were the case on Saturday afternoon, as Flintridge Prep guard Jonathan Woo and the Rebels shot down St. Francis High, 43-41, in sudden-death overtime at the Prep Shootout. Woo, who’d been held scoreless the entire second half, drove forward into the paint and leaned forward, draining a jumper 51 seconds into sudden death to give the Rebels a victory over their cross-street rivals.

HACIENDA HEIGHTS - After all the instances in which it seemed the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team had victory in its grasp only to see it slip away, it appeared that host Los Altos was the one that had finally closed a firm grip upon triumph. But it was the shot clock that sounded rather than the final horn when Conqueror Kimberly Conde put a shot past Crescenta Valley goalie Gabriel Isacson. Seconds later, amid the chaos and bedlam of a celebratory and confused home crowd, Falcons sophomore Shannon Hovanesian quickly drew an ejection in front of the Los Altos goal and passed back to teammate Nayiri Kechichian, who immediately fed it back to Hovanesian.

Thank you so much for the recent article about the Gregg family. It brought back personal memories. I lived in two Gregg houses. The first, at 1228 Carlton Drive, where I spent the first 14 years of my life, was torn down several years ago for a school. The second, at 1708 Capistrano Circle, is still there. I got to know Alice Lee when she was married to Elwood Ingledue. She was a delightful person, and I am glad to have known her. Clarence Gregg was an active member of the First United Methodist Church until his sudden death in July 1960.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Following nearly 37 grueling minutes, capped by her match-winning goal in sudden-death overtime, Hannah Walleck could barely celebrate. The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy water polo player was exhausted and relieved that the Tologs pulled out a 13-12 Mission League home victory against Alemany on Thursday afternoon. She was practically breathless moments after the match concluded. "I felt like this game was going to go on forever," said Walleck, who finished with seven goals, including the winner with 10 seconds left in the first sudden-death overtime.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - For more than 65 minutes of game time, St. Francis High's soccer team was holding a winning ticket for a trip to the CIF Southern Section Division I quarterfinals. But then a familiar storyline reared its ugly head, as the Golden Knights saw a late lead, along with their ticket to the next round, slip away on a late regulation goal before an overtime tally by visiting Ventura that was as controversial as it was heartbreaking brought St. Francis' season to a halt with a 2-1 sudden-death loss on Friday afternoon at Friedman Field.

LA CRESCENTA — After winning its CIF Southern Section Division IV first-round match Friday afternoon, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team erased forgettable memories of last season's unexpectedly short-lived playoff run, in which they were upset after winning a program-first Pacific League title. More importantly, however, the sudden-death goal from Alex Berger that put an end to a nailbiter played on a wet field at Crescenta Valley High put the Falcons into the second round and raises the possibility of a deep playoff run after going undefeated in the Pacific League and winning league yet again.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Storied a tradition as the St. Francis High soccer program possesses, the aspect of success on the soccer field is only rivaled by dramatics, particularly in the postseason. Once more, the Golden Knights took themselves and their fans on a playoff rollercoaster ride, with a second consecutive comeback foray into overtime. Unfortunately for St. Francis and its faithful, the dramatics ended with disappointment, as the Golden Knights fell in sudden-death overtime to visiting Northwood, 3-2, in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs on Tuesday afternoon at Friedman Field.
