Down the stretch they come. Two wounded Mustangs in the final leg of two separate races. With eight games left in each of their seasons, The Master's College's men's and women's teams are in danger of missing the NAIA National Tournament.

Finally, some sort of clarity. In Foothill League boys and girls soccer, a couple of games from Tuesday gave some answers. The first answer came from boys soccer.

Tom Barber's goal is to spread Jesus' word. So he goes on foot and tries to spread that message. He encounters all kinds of people - the mildly interested, those who dismiss Jehovah's Witnesses and those who listen. Then there was the old man.

All this talk of rivalry, and no game to back it up. Until now. Amid head-splitting noise, back-and-forth scoring and a tight finish, Golden Valley boys basketball defeated West Ranch 70-66 at Golden Valley High Tuesday night to establish the rivalry.
