Carlo Sivilotti and Jaime Walker each scored goals within the first two minutes of the fourth period to put Prep up 8-2, which would prove crucial when the apaches (0-1) mounted a 4-0 run to get within two with a minute to play. Brian Kihn had seven saves for the Rebels. GIRLS' GOLF Burroughs 237, La Cañada 248: The Spartans got off to a sloppy start in their season opener at the DeBell Golf Course after their originally scheduled opener with South Pasadena and Crescenta Valley was rained out Aug. 30.

The La Cañada boys? soccer team hosted Arcadia last week and despite several good chances to score, came away with a 2-1 loss to the Pacific League visitor. The Spartans struggled early on with passing errors and though their defense got two solid off-sides traps, Arcadia managed to run through the backfield to score twice in the first quarter. ?Arcadia is the best team we have played so far,? said Spartan Head Coach Jordan Jones. ?They are athletic and fast, probably better than most teams in our Rio Hondo League.

It wasn't all that pretty, but you can still chalk it up as a coldly efficient "W." The St. Francis High Golden Knights kicked off the 2006 season with a victory over visiting Arcadia last Friday at Friedman Field, using a suffocating defense and opportunistic offense -- and overcoming an uncharacteristic 10 penalties - to wear down the Apaches, 24-0. Arcadia, which in preseason was ranked 10th in the CIF Southern Section Central Division, could muster only 60 yards of total offense against the Golden Knights, who pressured Arcadia quarterback Nick Ponce all night long.

The St. Francis varsity baseball team bashed host Pasadena, 11-3, in Arcadia Elks Tournament pool play last Thursday. The Golden Knights, who improved to 2-1, were scheduled to visit La Cañada down the block on Tuesday, but the rainy weather might have forced a postponement of the game. St. Francis, depending on the elements, will travel to North Hollywood Campbell Hall this Saturday for a nonleague doubleheader starting at 10 a.m. St. Francis was leading the Bulldogs 3-0 going into the top of the fourth inning when Pasadena tied up the contest on a three-run home run by Kevin Dultz.

Perhaps it was a bit closer than the St. Francis High football team expected. Nonetheless, within the grasp of Parker Nieves and Keith Enterante, the Golden Knights found a sigh of relief and a first-week nonleague victory against Arcadia, 42-27, on Friday night at Friedman Field. "[I'm] always happy to get the first win out of the way," said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds, whose team, ranked fifth in the CIF Southern section Western Division, opened up the season with a win over Arcadia for the third straight year.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Under normal circumstances, La Cañada High girl's volleyball Coach Brock Turner should have been more confident going into a nonleague, home match versus Arcadia. But with the team coming off a holiday weekend in Cerritos for the Gahr Molten Classic, recently completing "Hell Week" and playing without three starters, the home opener had some uncertainty creeping into Turner's head. The anticipated struggles against the Apaches only lasted one game, as the Spartans improved to three wins and three losses on the season with a 25-23, 25-5, 25-19 Thursday.

ARCADIA - For a moment, the La Cañada High girls' tennis team appeared in line for victory Monday. Needing only to win one of the final two sets of a nonleague road match against Arcadia, the Spartans turned to their No. 1 doubles team of Emily Swanson and Emily Matuska to get them over the top in games. The tandem inched closer before serving for match-point. Unfortunately for La Cañada, it couldn't wrap up the victory, and instead suffered a 10-8 defeat. Swanson and Matuska held a 5-4 lead before Arcadia's Jenny Yang and Shelley Park rallied to win the set, 7-6 (7-4)

Now the Golden Knights will look to take their show on the road to Santa Maria to take on what figures to be stiffer competition in Righetti High, which is ranked seventh in the CIF Southern Section Northern Division and is a member of the Los Padres League. "The Los Padres League up there is good," Bonds said. "I like the idea of taking a three-hour bus ride up there in the preseason to get an idea of what that's like in case we have to go up there again in the playoffs.
