Charles Rich FRIEDMAN FIELD -- They weren't about to be doomed for a second consecutive day by a shot of the post or an opposing goalkeeper making a crucial save in the waning moments. The St. Francis High boys' soccer team was dealt its lesson in humility Thursday by crosstown rival Crescenta Valley High, dropping a 1-0 decision in a pool-play game of the Brandt/Burroughs Tournament despite unleashing 27 shots on goal. The Golden Knights learned from their sufferings Friday as they scored three second-half goals in 12 minutes to post a 3-0 victory over Westlake High in another tournament pool-play match at Friedman Field.

Charles Rich NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- He's begun the wait for the seeds to germinate. It's been a lengthy process for first-year Hoover High girls' water polo Coach Scott Finney, who planted the roots at practice in November and now patiently awaits for Hoover to crack the win column. Finney will have to wait longer after Hoover dropped a 13-2 nonleague decision to visiting Westlake on Monday. Hoover (0-8) concluded the nonleague portion of its schedule Monday and the climb will get tougher for the Tornadoes when they begin Pacific League competition against visiting Muir on Wednesday.

Charles Rich BURBANK -- Hoover High girls' basketball Coach Jack Van Patten spoke more like the president of a struggling major corporation. Van Patten's sagging team hasn't generated many positive results during a losing skid that's spanned more than two weeks. Hoover dropped its seventh consecutive game with a 52-43 loss to Westlake in a pool-play game of the 20th annual Burroughs/Magnolia Park Optimist Club 2001 Holiday Tournament at Burroughs High on Friday.

BURBANK — If there was a theme for the Glendale High girls' basketball team's loss to Westlake on Tuesday evening in the Bellarmine-Jefferson Tournament, it would be inconsistency. The Nitros forced the Warriors into 18 turnovers, 11 coming via steals, but could not prevent Westlake from collecting key offensive rebounds and getting easy second-chance points. They put seven quick points on the board during a last-ditch effort to keep Westlake from running away with the game, but suffered long offensive droughts when a slim lead was theirs to protect.

Mirjam Swanson MONTROSE -- For the seven seniors on the Crescenta Valley High softball team, Friday's 2-0 loss was an abrupt, tearful end to what several labeled their favorite season. The Falcons rolled into Pacific League play with a 15-3 mark, then continued their ownership of the league, going 10-0, bringing the program's league winning streak to 50, and enjoying one another's company throughout. It was an impressive regular season. It led to a painfully abbreviated postseason.

GLENDALE — After a great start for the host team on Friday in the 2008 Falcon Water Polo Tournament, things only got better for the Crescenta Valley High boys’ water polo team over the weekend. The Falcons finished the three day tournament undefeated in six matches and captured the championship with a 9-1 defeat of Westlake on Sunday afternoon. “What I like about rematches is that you can make adjustments,” said Falcons Coach Jan Sakonju, whose team beat Westlake, 11-4, on Friday, “and I think that’s a crucial thing that players learn — how to analyze a team that you played before and come back with a new game plan.

STUDIO CITY - Whether or not anyone within the Pacific League or CIF Southern Section Division V will stop the Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team from repeating as CIF Southern Section divisional champion will not be determined for weeks. In the meanwhile, the Falcons had no problems demonstrating that they could play in another stratum, as Division V second-ranked Crescenta Valley was at times dominant in frustrating and ultimately defeating Division III No. 2 Harvard-Westlake, 15-9, on the road Wednesday afternoon.

LOS ANGELES - The idea that sporting events can turn over a matter of inches is as cliche as it comes in the world of sports. But for the Flintridge Sacred Heart soccer team on Monday, a matter of inches may have cost them in a 2-1 Mission League loss against rival and CIF Southern Section Division I second-ranked Harvard-Westlake at Occidental College. Trailing by a goal in the 47th minute, Tologs goalkeeper Dani Garcia appeared to make a clean save on a shot from the Wolverines' Paige Howard, but the ball rebounded off Garcia and, in the eyes of the line judge, just over the end line as Garcia laid out in an attempt to stop the goal.

LA CAÑADA - Nearly 1,900 feet above sea level, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' volleyball program knows a little something about altitude. And it was all about attitude that put the Tologs in rarefied air Thursday evening. For the first time in seven years and 15 consecutive matches, Flintridge Sacred Heart defeated rival Harvard-Westlake, 25-23, 25-27, 25-21, 25-19 to split leadership atop the Mission League standings and at least put the Tologs on track for a share of the program's first league crown since 2006.

LA CRESCENTA - While the results didn't necessarily bear out any big changes, home course advantage provided some benefits for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and St. Francis High cross-country programs in Thursday afternoon's second Mission League meet at Crescenta Valley Park. The Tologs continued to prove themselves a force within league by finishing runner-up, while a young Golden Knights squad continued to gain valuable training in taking sixth. “It helps to have experience on this course and know what to expect,” Tologs junior Kayla Grahn said.
