Spartan Head Coach Rich Wheeler told his La Cañada squad, following their 35-0 loss to Harvard-Westlake last Friday night, what the team was in for the rest of the year. ?This game means absolutely nothing. You played a tough pre-season, and now the real season begins next week against San Marino,? Wheeler said. ?You have no reason to feel ashamed. If you do, you should not be playing on this team. Wheeler continued that this has been the toughest preseason he had encountered in his 11 years of coaching at La Cañada High.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD — With a victory needed to clinch an automatic playoff berth, the St. Francis High football team left nothing to chance and wasted no time in determining its own fate. On the strength of a 24-point first half and scoring on its first six drives overall, the Golden Knights trumped host Harvard-Westlake, 34-14, Friday night in both team's Mission League finale. "It couldn't have come at a better time," said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds of his team's performance, which put the Golden Knights at 6-4 and 3-2 in league and clinched a postseason berth that will be unveiled with Sunday's CIF Southern Section Western Division pairings.

So this is what it feels like to go to a championship game. That?s what the girls at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy are thinking, after a thrilling playoff run last week that included a case of déjà vu and a shot at redemption. For redemtion, the team needs to beat Harvard-Westlake at least once this season; they will have their last chance to do so on Saturday, when the two powerhouses meet in the CIF Southern Section I-A Finals at Cypress College. Yet to get to that big game, the Tologs had to redeem themselves Tuesday night against Santa Barbara, who beat them last year in the same semifinal game.

The La Cañada High boys' water polo team dug itself a hole it couldn't swim out of in its first home match of the season Tuesday against visiting Harvard-Westlake at Pasadena City College. The Spartans surrendered four unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the match. They ended up making it a close contest, but couldn't win, as they fell, 12-10, in their first big test of the season. The Spartans went on to score four goals in the last two minutes of the first period, but were unable to close the deficit as the Wolverines answered with four goals of their own. "I wasn't too happy with our execution in the first period," Spartans Coach German Lopez said.

The setting was different, but the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team had been in the exact same spot before — up a goal on Harvard-Westlake, with plenty of soccer left to be played. But whereas a momentary lapse allowed the Wolverines to come back and earn a tie on Jan. 6 at Harvard-Westlake, this time the Tologs filled the final 44 minutes of Monday night’s Mission League rematch with pretty near flawless soccer from end to end of Sartoris Field. Katie Johnson provided the Tologs with a first-half goal before the team kept up its defensive edge and stepped up its offensive aggression even further in the second half, leading to a Krista Meaglia goal in the 66th minute, to hold off the Wolverines for a 2-0 win. “We told them it was the exact same thing [at halftime]

LA CAÑADA - As the third-ranked team in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll, the St. Francis High basketball team appears on the verge of qualifying for the postseason in a couple of weeks. However, all isn't quite steady of late for the Golden Knights. They have slipped during the second half of Mission League play and have looked to gain some traction leading up to the final three league games. St. Francis mustered only 25 second-half points and suffered a 64-57 league home loss against Harvard-Westlake on Friday night in front of a noisy crowd.

STUDIO CITY - Career victory No. 400 continues to remain elusive for St. Francis High soccer Coach Glen Appels. While the veteran coach, who has guided the Golden Knights to three CIF Southern Section championships and one CIF Southern California Division II Regional Championship since taking over the program in 1989, would like to achieve the milestone, he's more concerned about the Golden Knights getting on track in the Mission League. “I'm not worried [about getting the 400th career victory]

In one week, the Flintridge Prep football team will go from facing the top of the Prep League to the bottom, as it travels to Webb Saturday at 1 p.m. after hosting Rio Hondo Prep last week. A victory would mean a top-two finish in league for the Rebels (4-4, 2-1 in league), who finished last in the standings in 2011, but Prep Coach Antonio Harrison knows full well the dangers of looking ahead. “I told the kids a team like Webb is one of those teams where they have nothing to lose so they're going to come out with everything they have to pull out a victory and pull off an upset against us so we can't let up,” Harrison said.

A look at the latest CIF Southern Section Western Division poll shows that four Mission League football teams are ranked in the top 10. Among those included are Chaminade High at No. 1 and St. Francis at No. 6. St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds is aware that the Eagles occupy the top spot, but he's looking for his players to block that out of their minds when they meet Chaminade in a league road contest at 7:30 p.m. Friday. "They are ranked No. 1 in the division if you decide to pay attention," Bonds said.

The members of the St. Francis High football team more than held their own during the nonleague portion of their scheduling, going 5-0 and limiting opponents to 6.8 points per game. Looking to replicate that in the Mission League might be a tall order, though the Golden Knights appear to be up to the challenge. St. Francis will get its first look at a league opponent when it meets visiting Harvard-Westlake in a league opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Friedman Field. The Golden Knights are ranked No. 4 in the latest CIF Southern Section Western Division poll and one of four league teams earning a top-10 ranking.
