Los Altos falls to Pasadena, 1-0: Every time the Los Altos High School boys soccer team had an opportunity, there stood pesky Pasadena in the way Tuesday afternoon.
Whether it was clearing goals – twice, no less – in the mouth of the goal or scoring on a counter in the second half just before playing a man down nearly the entire second half because of a red-card ejection, the Bulldogs put on quite the tease before making it official with a 2-1 win over the Conquerors in the wild-card round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 4 playoffs.
