Girls Soccer: Flintridge Sacred Heart and Alverno are the last teams standing in the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS


Saugus vs. Flintridge Sacred Heart at Glendale College: Flintridge Sacred Heart has vengeance on its mind now that it knows who it plays in today’s quarterfinals of the CIF-Southern Section Division 2 soccer playoffs. The Tologs (18-1-3) will host Saugus (11-4-2) at 3:15 p.m. at Glendale College, but it wasn’t until later in the evening Wednesday after its 5-0 victory over St. Lucy’s in the second round that Flintridge Sacred Heart found out it was playing the defending champion who ousted them in the second round last year. There’s a stark difference with the Tologs this year in that they’re much younger, but they’re also a battle-tested group ranked 11th in the nation on the ESPN FAB 50 rankings. Their lone loss was against Bishop’s of La Jolla, the No. 9-ranked team in the nation and tops in the CIF-San Diego Section.
Flintridge Sacred Heart coach Frank Pace said Saugus is dangerous for reasons other than beaming with confidence as defending champion. “They’re on a roll and feeling good about themselves,” Pace said. “They have the mentality of a champion. We’re trying to get there. We’re playing sophomores and freshmen, but we’ll get there.” The Tologs can hold their ground, too. They’ve played with precision, and that’s complemented their offensive prowess well, led by Katie Johnson (18 goals) and Breeana Koemans (14 goals, 14 assists). Defensively, Flintridge Sacred Heart has eight shutouts and has given up only nine goals in 22 games. The Tologs also are on a roll of their own, having beaten five league champions this season to earn a No. 2 seed in the tournament. Among them: Harvard-Westlake (the top-seeded team in Division 2), Alverno (defending Division 7 champion), Royal (Division 1) and Beckman (ranked No. 44 in the nation). It’s those kind of results that make Flintridge Sacred Heart an elite power. “And this was supposed to be our transition year,” Pace said. Some transition.

Cate vs. Alverno at Rio de Los Angeles Park: Scoring seems to come easy for Alverno and the defending Division 7 champion hopes it continues that way when it hosts CATE of Carpinteria in the quarterfinals at 3 p.m. today at Rio De Los Angeles Park in Los Angeles. The Jaguars (15-5-1) were worried that rust might be an issue after they earned a first-round bye and had not played in 14 days. But Alverno came out firing on all cylinders, scoring eight goals in all and getting four from Cassie Saavadra in an 8-1 victory over South El Monte in the second round. Alverno has allowed only two goals in its last seven games and in that span has scored a staggering 69 goals.

    Hi, should prenatal vitamins be taken even if the person is not intending on getting pregnant? My girlfriend has started taking prenatal vitamins because she believes it’s a good source of vitamins that would otherwise be absent in her system with a regular diet. However, we started wondering if the vitamins could possibly interfere with the hormones in her birth control pills and/or cause her to get pregnant… we are not planning on having kids any time soon so we want to know if the prenatal vitamins could cause her to get pregnant. Thank you in advance for your help.

    I don’t know what Ciara has been up to for the past several months. It’s been a long time since Ciara dropped her great track Ride with the sultry video! Ludacris seems to get his albums on time, so what happened to Ciara? I really can’t wait for Ciara’s next album, Basic Instinct, to drop. It is killing me!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
