Where were you on Tuesday at midnight, when the La Cañada football team was already practicing, running back and forth, ten times, the full 120 yards from field goal post to field goal post, kicking up the rubber bits on Spartan Field? Coach Rich Wheeler stood at the 50-yard line, barking orders, telling the boys to hurry up. Thirty minutes in and how many kids have thrown up? ?Seven. That?s why we have those trash cans there,? Wheeler said, pointing to the trash cans next to both field goal posts.

LA CAÑADA - Behind a strong second-quarter effort, the La Cañada High girls' basketball team not only opened their own holiday classic tournament with a victory, but it did so at the expense of a crosstown rival. By holding visiting Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy to one field goal in the second quarter, the Spartans established a sizable halftime lead and never looked back in a 61-44 victory in pool play action on Thursday afternoon.

Five touchdowns were plenty enough for La Cañada to cruise past Glendale in its season opener against Glendale on Sept. 18. However, the Spartans scored five more touchdown on Friday in its home opener against Crescenta Valley, only to have Arian Agbhani kick La Cañada?s upset hopes through the uprights and out of the stadium. Agbhani?s modest 27-yard field goal was all that the Falcons needed to put away the upset-minded Spartans on Friday night, as Crescenta Valley (2-1) defeated La Cañada, 38-35, despite 15 penalties and three crucial turnovers by the visiting team at La Cañada High.

COVINA — It isn't often a single stat can tell the story of a game, but there might not be a more compelling reason as to why the La Cañada High girls' basketball team isn't advancing farther this postseason after the Spartans scored only nine points in the second half in falling at Covina, 51-25, in the CIF Southern Section Division III-A quarterfinals Wednesday evening. "The story of the game is the shooting percentage. When you only score two field goals in the second half after having opportunity after opportunity, it's hard to look at any other stat," La Cañada Coach Tamar Hill said.

Wagner College, with the help of St. Francis High graduate Matt Abbey, raced out to a 27-0 halftime lead and never looked back as it went on to a 34-0 victory at home last Saturday. Wagner, located in Staten Island. N.Y., remains undefeated and improves to 4-0 for the first time since 1995. The Seahawks produced a season high 513 yards of total offense, while the defense pitched the first shutout at Wagner College stadium since a 29-0 win over Robert Morris in 2002. Sophomore quarterback Matt Abbey, a resident of La Cañada Flintridge, completed 12 of 20 attempts for 211 yards.

The Spartans have a habit of putting teams away early this season. Friday?s home game against San Marino was no different as La Cañada?s fast start was enough to handily beat the Titans, 57-38. It was the Spartan defense that allowed them to win handily, limiting San Marino to just six first quarter points and did not allow the Titans to convert a field goal for nearly 8 minutes. ?We?re a real good defensive team right now,? said Spartan head coach Tom Hoffman. ?We?re getting a lot better.

The Flintridge Prep varsity football squad has had an up and down season in 2006. The Rebels are capable of winning big and losing big. In their last two Prep League games, they haven't put up too much resistance against their opponents. Prep was downed 24-7 by visiting Rancho Palos Verdes Chadwick two weeks ago and last Saturday fell to visiting Arcadia Rio Hondo Prep, 33-3. The Kares' defeat dropped the Rebels to 3-4 overall and to 1-2 in league. They will travel to Pasadena Poly this Saturday for a 2 p.m. league contest.

Perhaps it was a little unfair that they were so close and held possession with only a few seconds left and 99 yards to go. La Cañada High’s offense wasn’t high powered enough and the Spartans lost to Monrovia last Friday, their secondstraight league loss, 10-7. "We played our hearts out," Spartans Head Coach Rich Wheeler said, "I can’t fault anybody." Coach Wheeler then gave credit to the defense and to defensive coordinator David Watts for his excellent game-calling.
