It took a few games, but La Canada has finally earned their first win of the season, crushing Firebaugh, 35-8, and playing like a well-oiled machine.  But there were no stars, this was a team effort.  “Everyone was a star tonight,” Coach Rich Wheeler said. “The whole team did a hell of a job. The defense did a hell of a job. Coach Watts did a hell of a job coaching on defense.”  Indeed. There’s plenty of evidence to support his hypothesis.

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.

Head coach Dan Yoder had wanted his Spartans to rely less on the aerial attack and focus more on the ground game and special teams against the Falcons. While he did not necessarily get his wish two weeks ago against Crescenta Valley, perhaps his boys finally listened to him last Friday night, as the La Cañada football team scored five touchdowns on the ground and one touchdown on special teams en route to a dominating 42-6 victory over Lynwood Firebaugh, 42-6, at Lynwood Middle School last week.

Throughout the regular season, the La Cañada High boys' soccer team was ranked in the top 10 in the CIF Southern Section Division V poll. Several times, the Spartans were the top-ranked team. Shortly after the CIF office unveiled its playoff pairings, La Cañada Coach Alex Harrison learned that the Spartans received the fourth seed after sharing the Rio Hondo League championship with second-seeded South Pasadena. South Pasadena, by virtue of going 1-0-1 against La Cañada in a pair of season head-to-head meetings, garnered the league's No. 1 seed.

The iron is hot for La Canada and the Spartans struck Arroyo High hard, hitting up the Knights for four passing touchdowns and putting up a goose egg on defense to win, 28-0. “That was a good win,” Head Coach Rich Wheelers said. “It was nice to close the door for a change.”   Before last week’s win over Firebaugh, the Spartans had lost their previous two games, against Alhambra and Glendale, on the final possession of the game.
