LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - The St. Francis High boys' basketball team's bid to knock off a second Mission League heavyweight in a span of three days never got out of the first quarter on Friday night. Overmatched by Alemany's offensive firepower to begin with, the Golden Knights stood little chance when the Warriors' defense took over the game early en route to a 76-45 victory. Alemany, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section 3-A, filled passing lanes, picked pockets and forced eight turnovers in the first quarter.

Chris Ehrlich of Burbank is a newswire editor. Tom Cruise's latest blockbuster, "The Last Samurai," combines epic battle scenes, history and just enough romance and humor to present a story of samurai warriors in late-19th century Japan that's both exciting and graceful. A bearded Cruise sparingly calls on his signature smile during the film. Nevertheless, he shines as Capt. Nathan Algren, a whiskey-drink- ing veteran of the U.S. Army, who leads a life without purpose.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Tuesday night just kept getting better and better for the Glendale Adventist Academy girls' volleyball team. After struggling to edge past visiting Apple Valley Christian in the first game, the Cougars' task at hand got easier as the match went on en route to a 25-22, 25-18, 25-15 victory in a CIF Southern Section Division V-AA wild card match at Glendale Adventist. "They got it warmed up a little as the games went along," said Cougars Coach Bianka Tulgar, whose team advanced to the first round of the playoffs on Thursday, when it will travel to face La Verne Lutheran.

Sang Lee EL CAMINO -- When the players on Glendale Community College's womens' basketball team saw their seven-point halftime lead go down to four with 5:41 left in the second half against El Camino Community College, they bit their lip. And when it saw its one-point lead threatened by Warrior, Tiffany Servio, who went to the line with six seconds left to shoot a pair of free throws, they ghasted in horror. But after two straight misses, they finally got to sigh in relief.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Three days removed from a disappointing loss, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy basketball team bounced back with a terrific all-around team effort. Unfortunately, the effort alone was not able to carry to the Tologs. A game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer narrowly missed and Sacred Heart fell at home to Alemany, 60-57, in a Mission League contest on Tuesday. "We hustled our hearts out," said Tologs guard Maddy Emanuel, who finished with seven points and six rebounds, "we just came up a little short."

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan It was an overused cliche, but at that moment, it described the St. Francis soccer team's playoff philosophy. Following his squad's 3-2 opening-round overtime victory against Agoura, Golden Knight Coach Glen Appels pulled his players aside and told them a simple message: "One down and four to go [to win a title]." St. Francis had been down a successful playoff road before and Appels knew what it took to win a CIF Southern Section Division II title.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — A cold-shooting spell kept the St. Francis High basketball team winless in the Mission League.

A Glendale man serving in Iraq is featured in a documentary film and book project that producers hope will give the public a better understanding of those who serve in the military. For Col. James D. McGinley of the U.S. Marine Corps, the film, “Warriors . . . In Their Own Words,” gave him the chance to talk about the challenges the troops faced in 2006 in Ramadi, which is in the Al Anbar Province in Iraq. “It was extremely dangerous,” he said, adding that it’s completely the opposite today, as shops are open and people are walking or driving freely.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE ? An Amir Moore goal in the 77th minute of play secured a 3-1 win over Westlake for the St. Francis High soccer team on Saturday night in a semifinal game of the runner-up bracket of the 2008 Ralph Brandt Tournament that was dominated for the most part by the Golden Knights? defense. St. Francis (3-0-1) held the Warriors (3-2) to just one shot attempt in the second half, where it held a 2-1 lead for the first 37 minutes. Moore?s goal, a chip shot converted off a cross to the near post from sophomore midfielder Jake LaPorte, took some pressure off of a St. Francis defense that really only faltered once throughout the entire match.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Flintridge Prep's Jordan Toyama may have looked strange in a No. 12 jersey, but a jersey switch midway through the second-quarter did little to throw off the senior point guard's game. With a team-high 11 points — including all nine of her team's first-quarter points — and steady play running the offense, Toyama led the host Rebels to a 52-40 victory in Wednesday's CIF Southern Section Division IV-A quarterfinal game. "I am so excited, this is amazing for the team," said Toyama, who had to remove her blood-stained No. 11 jersey in favor of a replacement after the fingernail on her pinky was ripped off. "Just to see everything play out like it is supposed to is amazing."

Stroh has provided a shot in the arm for the Warriors, having recorded three stolen bases and nine doubles through March 2. Stroh, a Crescenta Valley High graduate, is batting .304 (28 for 92)

A film centering on the world of the raw and brutal form of competitive fighting known as mixed martial arts would hardly make this reviewer rush to the cinema. But director Gavin O'Connor's new film, “Warrior,” much like last year's Oscar contender, “The Fighter,” goes beyond the ring to deliver a solid dramatic punch with its story of two estranged brothers competing in the same tournament. Tommy and Brendan are brothers riffled with the emotional scars of a childhood raised in a blue-collar Pittsburgh home with an abusive and alcoholic father.

A championship-caliber team needs an enforcer — a strong personality and physical presence that keeps teammates in line and opponents in fear. For the decorated Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team, that role belongs to Tera Trujillo. "She's probably as tough and as competitive a kid as we've ever had," Sacred Heart co-Coach Frank Pace says of the junior midfielder/defender. "She's got what we call a warrior mentality. She is a warrior. …She defines fun as measuring your best against the other team's best.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — With its sights squarely set on overtaking Alemany High for third place in the Mission League, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' basketball team got the rare opportunity to take a shot directly at the Warriors on its home court Thursday night. But even up close, Alemany proved to be an elusive target, winning, 66-56, and forcing the Tologs to rely on an at-large bid to qualify for the CIF Southern Section Division 5AA postseason. "I told the girls before this game that we needed to approach this like it's a playoff game because if we would have won this game it would have put us in a position to still take third place and an automatic bid from Mission League for CIF," said Tologs Coach Gino Pacella, whose team has two league games remaining and is currently ranked eighth in the division.

LOS ANGELES — As close and hard-fought as it was, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team’s 90-86 defeat at the hands of defending Mission League champion Alemany at Loyola High on Thursday was a loss the Tologs could live with. “I’m thrilled [with the meet],” said first-year Tologs Coach Steve Bergen, whose team would have likely had a lead instead of a deficit entering the final event were it not for a disqualification in an earlier relay.
