Maybe the first round victory will suffice until next season. Heading into the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs as the No. 15 seed, the Falcons knew they’d have to face No. 2 Santa Monica if they beat West Covina in the first round, and probably at Santa Monica. Unsurprisingly, after Crescenta Valley beat West Covina, the San Antonio league’s No. 3 team, the Falcons had to travel to Santa Monica to face the Vikings. Though they put up a good defense effort, Santa Monica put up a better one and the Vikings defeated the Falcons, 60-30, last Saturday.

Hamlet Nalbandyan ARROYO -- It's safe to say that Robbie Neyland was in his element Wednesday in a second-round game of the Arroyo Invitational at Arroyo High. The senior guard, like all the La Canada High boys' basketball team's starters, played just three quarters against West Covina, but he did plenty of damage, hitting seven three-pointers on his way to scoring what he believes is a career-high 26 points. The Spartan starters played just three quarters because that's all that was needed of them in the 80-52 thumping of the Bulldogs.
