LA CRESCENTA — Upending defending Pacific League champion Crescenta Valley High won’t be an easy task for any of the other teams looking to make a run at the league title, as Burbank found out on Tuesday at Crescenta Valley. The Falcons’ starters made their point early, putting up 10 unanswered goals in the first period, and the reserves that made up most of the lineup for the final three quarters were pretty effective themselves, in securing a 15-6 win the league opener for both teams.

BOYS' WATER POLO Burroughs 16, Muir 3: The Indians made the most of their first CIF Southern Southern Section Division III postseason appearance in four years Tuesday with a wild-card win at Burroughs High. It was supposed to be a home match for Muir -- the No. 3 team from the Pacific League -- but was moved to Burroughs because the Mustangs don't have a regulation pool. "This is the best defensive [match] we have played all year," Burroughs Coach David Cohen said.

Richard J. Won The circumstances with the local boys' water polo teams are as different as Burbank High blue and Burroughs red. Yet the rivals have focused their energies on one goal: finishing in the top half of the Almont League and qualifying for the CIF Southern Section playoffs. With perennial league power Bell Gardens, along with Montebello as an additional challenger for the league crown, both area teams will likely be fighting for one postseason spot come November.

Richard J. Won Playing in their new campus pool, the Burroughs High boys' water polo team was hoping their updated digs would translate into a winning advantage. However, that wasn't the case Wednesday for Indian Coach Dave Cohen and his starting crew -- which includes two freshmen and two sophomores -- as they were overwhelmed by a more experienced, and faster Montebello team. In a 17-6 opening Almont League win, the Oilers turned the pool into their own personal counter-attack display.

BURBANK HIGH — Hoping to simply limit rather than stop top-seeded Crescenta Valley High, the Burroughs High girls’ water polo team accomplished its goal fairly well for three quarters of Wednesday’s Pacific League Tournament first-round match. But a seven-goal outburst by the Falcons in the second quarter negated a close first quarter and kept the fourth-seeded Indians from ever closing the gap in the second half, as Crescenta Valley coasted to a 16-4 win at Burbank High.

BURBANK - It started as a shootout, but over the course of Tuesday's Pacific League championship tournament preliminary match between Glendale High and host Burbank, the Bulldogs just couldn't match or contain the top-seeded Nitros' firepower for long. Led by 10 goals on the night from Armand Momdzhyan, Glendale used a run of six unanswered goals in the second quarter to pull away from fourth-seeded Burbank and lay the groundwork for a 25-11 win that set the stage for a championship showdown with archrival Hoover at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Burbank.

Unprecedented may be the best word to describe the 2009 season turned in by the Hoover High boys? water polo team and its best player, Hakop Kaplanyan. Never before has a Tornadoes squad advanced as far as the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs, as this one did, and never before has a single scorer been so prolific in one season in state history. Hoover?s historic postseason run and Kaplanyan?s season for the record books were intertwined storylines that ran their course on the very same day, with the sophomore utility scoring his record-breaking 227th goal in the second quarter of the Tornadoes?

GLENDALE - Burroughs High found itself on top of the Pacific League boys' soccer standings after one round of play thanks to its ability to gain definitive results. The Indians had lost two games, one more than second-place Crescenta Valley, but had also won five games, one more than the twice-tied Falcons, giving them a one-point lead going into the second half, which started Tuesday afternoon. "We needed to come out with a good result today," Burroughs Coach Michael Kodama said.

BURBANK - Down three goals early in the first quarter against second-seeded La Serna High, Burbank's boys' water polo team looked like it was on track to get blown out rather than pull off an upset. But the underdogs rallied right back. The hopes of an upset carried on through the midway point of the third period, as the Bulldogs were down by just one, but a three-goal La Serna run proved to be the difference in sending the No. 2 seed ahead to the semifinals and Burbank to its season's conclusion after a 14-10 loss on Saturday morning in the CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinals at Burbank High.
