DIV II CIF-SS/TOYOTA 2008 BOYS SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIPS 1ST ROUND- Friday, Febuary 15 @ 3:00pm
The CIF-Southern Section high school basketball playoff brackets were released Sunday and they mention the words "Foothill" and "League" often.
As many thought it would turn out, the Foothill League's winter sports were wild. Ties, buzzer beaters, departures, highlights, lowlights - all of them happened. League races came down to the final game of the regular season in three of four sports - Saugus' girls soccer team was the only squad that clinched a league title earlier. But for the other three - boys and girls basketball and boys soccer, drama and math factored in. ...
With a stunning tie in the regular season finale against Saugus High one season ago, the West Ranch girls soccer team ruined the Centurions' playoff chances.
The Saugus boys soccer team needed two things to happen coming into its final game of the season Thursday against West Ranch.
With tonight in mind, the Golden Valley High girls basketball team ordered its first-ever batch of what-will-you-miss-the-most cards.
Maybe it's exactly what to expect from the Hart-Canyon rivalry. Neither team budges, even when second place and playoff seedings are on the line. On Thursday night at College of the Canyons in the Foothill League finale, the Indians led for 23 minutes of the first half and 39 minutes of the second. It still left one minute. Off a corner kick by Jessica Tondreau in the final minute of the game, the Cowboys' Milan ...
It was early last week that Phil Lopez was saying his Golden Valley boys soccer team had the talent to score three or four goals a game.
National signing day marks an aloha of sorts as many high school and junior college athletes are making their farewells and hellos official.
Canyon boys basketball head coach Chad Phillips' plan made sense. It just backfired. At times in Wednesday's game, the coach decided to go box-and-one defense on West Ranch's 3-point specialist Beau Martin, and sometimes even on David Franklin. Martin never scored in the game, but it looked like he passed on 3-point touches to everyone else on the Wildcats. West Ranch dropped a school-record 14 treys on the Cowboys, nullifying a game-high 30 points from ...
Amanda Reyes said the Canyon girls basketball team knew all along they would win. But make no mistake about it, the Cowboys survived a scare by West Ranch, a team that hadn't won a Foothill League contest coming into Wednesday. Canyon scored just two baskets from the floor in the final frame but defeated the Wildcats 49-44 at West Ranch High. Brooke Lemar scored a team-high 17 points for Canyon. The Cowboys (14-12, 5-4) ran ...
Lost in the shuffle of one wild finish and a Foothill League championship being crowned Tuesday night was another wild finish that involved another team that could share that crown.
It was not the ideal situation. The Canyon girls soccer team was without its sweeper Milan Cabrera, who received two yellow cards in a game against West Ranch on Feb. 1. Her sister, Malaya, another starting defender, was at an Olympic Development Program showcase in Florida. Cowboys head coach Keeli Paden had to use a quartet of defenders that had never played as a group together this season Tuesday, facing Valencia in a game that ...
The Canyon High boys soccer team is alone at the top of the Foothill League for the time being.
Four graduated starters. One retired head coach. Three wins in the first nine games of the year.
The Trinity Classical Academy Knights football team could say it expected to beat a highly thought of Desert Christian of Bermunda Dunes and it would be believable. But if any Knight says he expected his team to wallop the Conquerors, the CIF-Southern Section 8-man Division I No. 5 team, 48-0, then they might be fibbing. Yet the Knights not only beat the Conquerors that badly on Friday afternoon at West Ranch High, they humiliated Desert ...
Canyon did it to Golden Valley earlier this season, now the Grizzlies have done it to the Cowboys.
The West Ranch Wildcats continued their unbeaten start to Foothill League play with a 3-1 victory over Saugus on Thursday at Saugus High.
Be careful about what you think you know.
Hart High quarterback Brady White never invited you here.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Adam Wainwright held the hug with catcher Yadier Molina a few extra seconds, soaking in his latest pressure-packed performance for the St. Louis Cardinals.
At this point, Golden Valley girls golf has the lead and will need to close things out on Oct. 22 and 23 in the final two league matches in order to win its first Foothill League championship.
It's not often an athlete truly comes out of nowhere to the surprise of rival players and coaches around the valley.
For both the Foothill and Bay leagues, last week's games were the final tuneup before league play, and the leagues' two top teams sit at the top of the latest CIF-Southern Section Northern Division rankings.
It was clear from the start what kind of day it would be for the Trinity Knights when they hosted the Ojai Valley Spuds on Saturday at Ojai Valley High School.
CAMARILLO - Down by four points with 3:23 remaining in the fourth quarter, Saugus Centurions running back Blake Austin dove over right tackle at the 1-yard line to give his team what appeared to be a game-clinching first-and-goal opportunity against a reeling Camarillo Scorpions football team. But on a windy Friday night when offense was in short supply, the Scorpions defense held Saugus just short enough - squashing the Centurions' desperate comeback bid with ...
CHATSWORTH - For at least one night this season, the Golden Valley Grizzlies football team can feel like a perennial powerhouse.
One week after surrendering more points than it had in its first three games combined, the motivated Canyon defense bolstered the Cowboys to a 28-0 win over the Steele Canyon Cougars on Friday, some 175 miles from home in Spring Valley.
