NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Throughout most of Thursday's 80-minute Liberty League girls' soccer match between Glendale Adventist Academy and Providence High, Providence enjoyed a major territorial advantage. It also had a significant edge in scoring opportunities. However, the Pioneers couldn't reap the benefit and saw the Cougars take advantage of one of their few chances. Daniece Poblete scored on a rebound off a corner kick in the first half and goalkeeper Victoria Osby made 12 saves to propel Glendale Adventist to a 1-0 victory against Providence at the Glendale Sports Complex.

PASADENA - Both the Providence High and Glendale Adventist Academy girls' soccer programs have struggled to field and maintain teams this season. “We didn't even know just before the season started if we were even going to have a team this year,” said Pioneers Coach Kordo Doski, who had just four players on his bench Thursday for a game against the Cougars. “We do have a few good players, but a lot of these girls have never even played soccer before. We are having to teach them the fundamentals of the game.” For the Liberty League contest at Villa Parke Community Center in Pasadena, Glendale Adventist had only two reserve players.

The Providence High softball team's season came to an end Friday with a 12-0 loss to host Santa Maria Valley Christian in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs. The game was called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule. The Pioneers (10-11) -- who finished tied for second in the Liberty League -- couldn't contain the Lions (18-5), who won the Costal Valley League. They also got just two hits off Valley Christian pitcher Christine Regalado, who had 10 strikeouts.

After winning its first Liberty League championship in 13 years a year ago, the Pioneers lost two key players, namely All-CIF Southern Section standout Phil Harvey, who graduated. After the team's next-best offensive weapon transferred, even Pioneers Coach Josh Eggleston thought the prospect of his team repeating as league champion was slim at best. But his players kept telling the coach that winning league was something they could do, even if the coach brushed it off. Having to retool the offense and bring up a crop of players from the junior varsity program, Eggleston helped guide the Pioneers in the right direction.

BURBANK - After winning the Liberty League championship last season, the Providence High boys' volleyball team looked to have a good chance at repeating this season, despite losing some key players.

BURBANK - Baserunners were aplenty for the Providence High boys' baseball team in its league opener against Pacifica Christian on Tuesday evening. The Pioneers put at least five batters on base in each inning, and seven in three multi-run innings, to cap timely hitting en route to a 12-4 win over the Seawolves at Schafer Field in Ralph Foy Park. With the win, Providence improves to 5-1 on the season after a convincing nonleague campaign in which the Pioneers outscored their opponents, 57-10, in the four wins.

BURBANK - Weeks of tournament matches, nonleague contests and hours of practice had led the Providence High boys' volleyball team to the moment the Pioneers have been working toward. Providence opened defense of its Liberty League championship by hosting rival Holy Martyrs. The Pioneers weren't particularly crisp, they suffered lapses at times and seemed out of sync on occasion. Despite the problems, Providence was able to overcome its shortcomings to earn a 25-23, 25-19, 25-18 win against the visiting Armens on Tuesday.

Katia Dabbaghian should be used to receiving recognition this time of the year. For the two previous seasons, Dabbaghian, a junior on the Providence High girls' basketball team, was honored with All-CIF Southern Section accolades. This year, the tradition continued. For the third straight season, Dabbaghian earned All-CIF accolades, as she was named to the Division IV-A first-team when the list was released by the CIF Office on Monday. A pair of local players were named to the All-CIF second team, as Burbank junior Yazzy Sa'Dullah and Burroughs junior Davina Del Castillo were honored in Division I-A.

BURBANK - In avenging its lone league defeat of the season, the Providence High girls' basketball team defeated Holy Martyrs in the semifinals of the Liberty League Tournament and is one win away from capturing its fifth straight title. Kristie Kawamoto paced the Pioneers with 23 points, including five three-pointers, to propel Providence to a 50-15 home victory Wednesday over the Armens, who offered little resistance, and certainly not anywhere near the Jan. 28 tilt between the two teams that saw Holy Martyrs come away with a one-point victory.
