The La Cañada High boys' 7/8 played their season opener against host Clifton Middle School of Monrovia on March 2 and won 4-1. As each team took turns testing each other's defense, La Cañada's Brian Blumenfeld took matters into his own hands at the 12 minute mark. He pushed the ball through the midfield, then down the left side. One quick move later, Blumenfeld made a left-footed cross just over the outstretched gloves of the Clifton keeper and Matthew Cannata kicked the ball into the net for the Spartans' first score.

It was a tale of two teams for the La Cañada boys? soccer team on Monday and Tuesday, where they beat Crescenta Valley at CV on Monday, 5-0, and lost to Arroyo-El Monte on Tuesday, 3-1. There?s no need to place blame on anything, the answer was obvious for people there at the game: they were well-rested for Monday?s game and tired on Tuesday?s. Last year, you may remember, La Cañada (1-1) took a strong step in the right direction as the squad got to the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS Division V playoffs.

The end came suddenly for the La Cañada High boys’ soccer team Thursday. Some players collapsed face down on the turf, others put their hands on their head and simply walked off the field. The quarterfinal playoff game had been played even throughout — a 0-0 tie through the first 80 minutes — until the fourth-seeded Salesian High Mustangs extinguished the fifth-seeded Spartans’ playoff hopes 10 minutes into sudden death overtime. “This deserved to be the finals game,” said Salesian Head Coach Mark Johnson.

It's easy to see why teams would get frustrated playing against the La Cañada High boys' soccer team. The Spartans are a high-octane team that continually keeps possession and is constantly on the attack. La Cañada's game against Blair High on Friday was a perfect example of this. The Vikings were carded five times and John Munoz, a Blair midfielder, received two yellow cards, which earned him a red card and an ejection after he shoved a Spartan player with 27 minutes left in the second half.
