PLACENTIA - Canyon girls basketball has had its way with opponents since the end of January.
The Valencia girls soccer team was carrying plenty of momentum heading into Friday's matchup with Walnut in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division II playoffs.
Canyon girls soccer's season of unpredictability took a downward turn on Friday.
Suffocated by a devil of a defense all game, Valencia swingman Lonnie Jackson attacked the teeth of it and drew a foul with five seconds left on Friday night.
Down 20 points at halftime, many teams would have folded.
After Golden Valley's Taylor Statham hit the biggest pair of back-to-back 3-pointers in his career, teammate Trevor Wiseman's one-handed fastbreak dunk was the perfect exclamation point in a 74-66 Grizzlies' win over Bonita in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Division IIIA playoffs on Friday at Golden Valley.
Santa Clarita Christian boys basketball is setting new standards this season.
So desperate was Woodcrest Christian's goalkeeper that she grabbed the leg of Santa Clarita Christian's Kayla Gale after the Cardinals senior booted the ball toward the net late in the second half on Friday.
Beginning its run at a second straight CIF-Southern Section Division II championship, Saugus girls soccer did not expect to be playing from behind.
The Hart girls soccer team is out to prove that it's a contender.
The Saugus High School boys basketball team combined a smothering zone defense in the second half with strong post play and a breakout performance from point guard Jawhar Purdy to trip up Sunny Hills of Fullerton in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Division IIAA playoffs.
The Valencia girls basketball team fell to sixth-seeded Crescenta Valley 53-48 Thursday in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division IA playoffs at Crescenta Valley.
Valencia boys soccer made what some might consider a surprising run at the Foothill League title in 2010.
In a new experience, Vasquez High girls basketball was simply overwhelmed.
Last season, the Canyon girls basketball team was forced to forfeit several losses that cost the Cowboys a trip to the playoffs.
We've sort of neglected the play of Saugus' Braden and Aden combo because of two other great Foothill League stories this year - Golden Valley sophomore Jonathan Kang's ascension to the top of the Foothill League and Hart's displacing six-time champion West Ranch as league champion.
West Ranch didn't expect to see its season end so early.
