YUCCA VALLEY - The conditions may not have been perfect for a Flintridge Prep boys' soccer victory, but it didn't spoil the day for the Rebels. Prep made the near three-hour trek to Yucca Valley Tuesday and played through a sloppy field and what the Rebels found to be puzzling officiating en route to a 3-2 victory in a CIF Southern Section Division VI wild-card game. The score didn't reflect how well the Rebels (8-6-4) controlled the game, as they finished with a 22-6 shot advantage and created 10 corner kicks to the Trojans' one to pull out a win in Prep's first trip to the postseason in six years.

After struggling throughout most of the second half of Mission League play, the St. Francis High basketball team entered the CIF Southern Section Division III-A playoffs looking to clean things up and get back on track. The Golden Knights, who received the second seed in the division after receiving an at-large berth, came into Wednesday's first-round contest against Yucca Valley in the midst of a four-game losing streak. St. Francis received a huge effort from Kyle Leufroy and overcame 19 turnovers to post a 63-59 overtime victory.

After receiving a scare in its first-round playoff game, the St. Francis High basketball team quickly made sure to avoid another struggle. Thanks in part to another big effort from one of their top players, the Golden Knights raced out to an early lead en route to a 69-45 road victory against San Dimas on Friday in a CIF Southern Section Division III-A second-round game. Second-seeded St. Francis (17-11) will take on unseeded Gladstone in a quarterfinal home game at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

She has the where-with-all to come out in this PC world and say it even if it means taking guff from many.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- He may be a quiet man, but Dennis Maxwell Sr.'s feelings for his family are loud and clear. "He'd bend over backward to do anything for us," said Tracey McCollum, one of Maxwell's six children.

For more than 80 minutes of Thursday's CIF Southern Section Division VI first-round game, the Flintridge Prep boys' soccer team played top-seeded Ontario Christian even on the scoreboard and, if you ask Rebels Coach Matt Bowden, even outplayed the Knights for most of the match. But, although overtime seemed imminent as regulation wound down, Prep's upset bid and season died in the waning ticks of injury time when Ontario Christian forward Cody Catano scored on a quick counter-attack goal for a 2-1 win. "It was a great effort, but unfortunately we just fell short," said Prep Coach Matt Bowden, whose team advanced to the first round with a 3-2 wild-card win over Yucca Valley on Tuesday.

A trip to the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship contest appeared to be anything but a slam dunk for the St. Francis High basketball team just a couple of weeks ago. After stumbling through the second half of Mission League, St. Francis earned the second seed in the division's playoff bracket before being taken to overtime by unseeded Yucca Valley in the first round. Since the opening-round scare, the Golden Knights appear to be the squad that excelled throughout December and the first part of January.

PASADENA - From the opening tip-off right through to the final horn, the St. Francis High and La Cañada boys' basketball teams gave the community something to cheer about for 32 minutes Friday night and most likely something to remember for a long time.
