After losing their second straight game in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, Coach Wheeler said it plain and simple. "We just need to finish," Coach Wheeler said pensively, after his team's loss on Friday.  That's how most of the team felt Friday night, as the Spartans led going into the third quarter, but gave up the winning touchdown with only 1 minute and 31 seconds left on the clock, losing 21-17. It was a close game throughout, both teams brought their defense.

With 4:32 left in the first quarter of Friday's opening round Division III-AA tournament, La Cañada Spartan star Adam Malik picked up his second foul. Clinging to a one-point lead, Spartan Head Coach Tom Hofman rose, put a finger to his chin and stared at the fourteen players on his bench. Junior Will Baldwin, averaging 3 points-per-game, was summoned. In the next eight minutes, Baldwin scored eight points, grabbed three rebounds, dished out two assists and the Spartans pulled out to a never-to-be-relinquished eight point lead.

Crescenta Valley Little League Junior Softball All-Stars pitcher Kylee Heurkins helped her team with quite an effort last Saturday. After only pitching two innings in the first game of the first round, Heurkins stepped up when called on and threw a three-hit gem to shut out the Alhambra squad in a second chance bracket contest. Add to that five strikeouts and only two base on balls and the rest seemed to work just fine for Heurkins. The CV Little League defenders stepped up and played an error- free game, making a number of dazzling plays in support of their pitcher.

La Cañada High's Scott Gray came back to the sideline and apologized to his coach for a broken play in the team's season opener Thursday against Alhambra. It wasn't too difficult for Spartans football Coach Dan Yoder to forgive him, considering the drawn-up pass play instead became a 15-yard scramble, good for the first touchdown of a game that ended with a 17-0 La Cañada victory. When Gray, the Spartans' quarterback, rolled out to pass he saw a clear lane into the endzone, and he waltzed in untouched.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Culture change has been what new La Cañada High football Coach James Sims has been preaching since he was hired to take over the program at the end of March. Well, the Spartans certainly looked different in their season and home opener Thursday night against Alhambra, and it wasn't just their new “throwback” uniforms. La Cañada used a dominating run game - spearheaded by senior back Andy Paynter, who racked up 159 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries - three methodical and time draining drives to defeat the Moors, 17-7.

ALHAMBRA ? Ethan Bramschreiber proved he could be in control on the mound and at the plate. The mild-mannered St. Francis High senior baseball player made things easy for himself once he got into a groove pitching. He did the same batting. Bramschreiber pitched six quality innings and delivered the game-winning hit to highlight a big fourth inning in sparking St. Francis to a 9-1 victory against host Alhambra on Saturday afternoon in the championship contest of the Arcadia Elks Tournament at Moor Field.

State Assemblyman Mike Eng (D-Monterey Park) offered his support for a study of a tunnel extending the Long Beach (710) Freeway on Sunday, countering a letter Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) sent to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority late last week. Eng's district includes Alhambra, which has long supported plans to extend the 710 to the Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena. The 710 now ends at Valley Boulevard, leading to heavy traffic on surface streets in Alhambra.

ALHAMBRA - For the second year in a row, La Cañada High opened its football season against Alhambra High, and the Spartans got an encore performance. For the second year in a row the Spartans outdistanced Alhambra, this year by relying on a stout defense and overcoming a disastrous third quarter to win 24-13 Friday night at Moor Field. “[Alhambra] played a good game against us. It was out first game of contact,” La Cañada second-year Coach James Sims said. “So, I'm not happy with the performance really, but based on the fact that is the first time we've played or had contact with anyone else, I'll take the win and we'll have to go get better.” La Cañada (1-0)

Nerves were certainly there early on for Todd Murray, the only sophomore on the La Cañada High varsity football team last year. Those all went out the window in his first game. Murray caught a 13-yard touchdown pass on the Spartans' first drive of the season and later recovered a fumble at La Cañada's 10-yard line with 5:44 to play in a 17-7 victory over Alhambra. “People always ask me what's one of your best feelings in your life,” said Murray, now a 16-year-old junior tight end/defensive end, “I've got to say that was definitely one of them - coming in, first touchdown of the season, new coach, varsity.” It was by far Murray's best game of the year and his young career, as he tallied his only touchdown and fumble recovery in nine games.

ALHAMBRA — There couldn't have been a much better start to the football season than the one La Cañada High had at Alhambra's Moor Field on Friday night. Unfortunately for La Cañada, momentum didn't remain on its sideline long, as four Spartans' drives were derailed by fumbles and the Moors capitalized on seemingly all of La Cañada's mistakes in a 34-14 victory. The Spartans (0-1) started the game on fire, marching 80 yards down the field in three plays for a touchdown, as quarterback Matt Jones broke a 66-yard run to give La Cañada a 7-0 lead to start the game.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — After getting off to such a great start, the members of the Flintridge Prep boys' water polo team weren't about to let it all go to waste. So, at the first sign of resistance from an overmatched Alhambra, the Rebels moved to swiftly crush the Moors' uprising and secure a 20-4 nonleague win at home on Tuesday. "It was a good building game," said freshman Ethan Vandeventer, who led Prep's high-scoring day with seven goals. "It feels good to get a win in front of our home crowd.
