With the Foothill League focused on a matchup of heavyweights, the Hart Indians and Valencia Vikings girls soccer programs battling it out to a 1-1 draw on Friday night, it might have been easy to miss just how crazy of an evening it was.
There's always that one moment when everything starts to click.
Neither Valencia, nor Hart girls soccer was willing to change its attacking philosophy on Friday night at Valencia High School - and that made for a wild matchup of the top two teams in the Foothill League.
And the roll continues. After entering Tuesday's tilt with Golden Valley on an eight game winning streak, the Hart girls soccer team won its ninth game in a row, 3-0, over the Grizzlies at Hart High. The Indians controlled the field for much of the contest, with Golden Valley playing a defensive-minded style. Hart (9-2-5 overall, 3-0 Foothill League) pressured from the start, breaking through in the 24th minute on a header by Michaela Rickard ...
The College of the Canyons women's basketball team knew it was taking on a depleted Citrus College squad on Saturday evening at College of the Canyons.
The West Ranch girls soccer team did almost everything right during the first half on Friday afternoon.
With one of its top scorers, Lewis Stallworth, lying on the ground holding his ankle, and down nine points on the road to Saugus, the Hart High boys basketball team wasn't willing to roll over.
The Valencia girls soccer had a golden opportunity to start the Foothill League season with a momentum-building win over three-time defending league champion Saugus on Tuesday afternoon at Saugus High in both teams league openers.
Saugus girls soccer is used to setting new benchmarks for the next year's squad to eclipse.
Last year may not have played out quite like Saugus' perfect 10-0 league run the previous season, but it sure ended in familiar fashion.
Valencia's doubles lineup was undoubtedly the best in the Foothill League this season, and the Vikings' No. 1 team of Tina Inchalik and Ashley Keith didn't disappoint in their leading role.
It's hard to grasp just how good Golden Valley's Rebecca Ho has been over the course of her four-year varsity career until you stop and look at the numbers.
Lewis Stallworth scored a game-high 22 points, including 10 in the third quarter, to help the Hart boys basketball team pull away from Glendale, 72-56, in the championship game of its own Hart Holiday Classic at Hart High School on Saturday.
The Hart girls soccer team may have finally hit its stride. After some early season struggles finding their footing under first-year head coach Justin Lundin, the Indians capped an undefeated showing at their own Hart Soccer Showcase with a 3-0 victory over Quartz Hill on Saturday afternoon at Hart High School. After going eight game without a victory to start the season, Hart is 6-0-1 in its last seven games, including a perfect 5-0 during ...
With high winds and a slick field, the conditions were hardly ideal for the Hart girls soccer team in the opening day of the Hart Soccer Showcase.
As soon as the ball reached the glove of West Ranch Wildcats first baseman Jordan Benty for the second out of a game-ending double play, the Wildcats came storming out of the dugout, dog piling in front of the mound in celebration.
The Hart Indians nearly pulled off a remarkable win over the second-place Valencia Vikings with an inexperienced pitcher in the circle.
It sure looks like something's missing.
The Foothill League was thrown a curve ball on Tuesday, and Valencia was one of the beneficiaries.
It's been a while, but on Thursday the Foothill League Finals boys meet is far from a sure thing.
Holding a lead in the seventh inning against the Valencia Vikings is something the Saugus Centurions remember well.
The Saugus Centurions looked determined to put the West Ranch Wildcats title celebration on hold for at least one more game.
