Los Altos vs. Monday’s St. Joseph-Yorba Linda winner.

No. 2 Sierra Vista goes down: There will be no all-area match-up in the CIF-Southern Section Division 6 girls soccer semifinals next week, a pair of teams from the Valley View League made sure of that.
Not long after Oxnard Pacifica eliminated third-seed San Dimas 1-0, visiting Camarillo jumped on top of host Sierra Vista and held on for a 3-1 victory over the second-seed Dons in the quarterfinals on Friday.
The Dons, who won the school’s first team championship of any kind by winning the Division 7 title in 2010, were eliminated from the quarterfinals for the third consecutive year.
It ends another remarkable year, finishing 21-4, marking the fourth straight season the Dons finished with just four losses or less.
“It’s always tough when you lose,” Dons coach Steve Jimenez said. “But we’re proud of our program. I’ve got great coaches, great parents, kids and school support that allow us to work year-around. We’re not going anywhere, we’ll be back.”

LOS ALTOS 3, GRANITE HILLS 1

LA PUENTE – For the Los Altos High School girls soccer team, the CIF-Southern Section playoffs have been all about payback and squaring the Conquerors with opponents who have dealt them postseason death in recent years.
Los Altos, after getting some playoff revenge on Garden Grove Pacifica earlier this week, crossed another one of that list Friday.
Sophomore midfielder Natalia Elizarraras scored a goal and had an assist to lead and the Conquerors got back at Granite Hills with a 3-1 victory in a Division 3 quarterfinal game at La Puente High School.
Granite Hills beat Los Altos in the semifinals in 2010.
Erin Myers and Melanie Moreno also scored goals for the Conquerors, who improved to 21-2-3 and advanced to Tuesday’s semifinals against either Yorba Linda or Lakewood St. Joseph, whose quarterfinal was postponed until Monday due to Friday’s rain.
Granite Hills, getting a goal from Ashlenn Bradbury, finished 13-8-4.

Los Altos coach Chris Reeder: “This whole playoff has been a repeat (in reverse) for us. Pacifica has knocked us out a couple of times and we get them (in the second round). Granite Hills played like Warriors a few years ago here and knocked us out. We were able to face them today in the quarters and knock them out.”

Granite Hills coach Mike Bradbury: “Credit to coach Reeder and his program and his girls. They obviously had a plan of attack, and when you execute your plan of attack, you win games.”

Los Altos’ Natalia Elizaarraras: “Our coach told us that (Granite Hills) comes out hard. To get two on them quick was pretty good and get some separation from them.”

Could former Baldwin Park great and once UCLA interim coach Mike Johnson take over at Diamond Bar?

Could Mike Johnson, who starred at quarterback for Baldwin Park in the 1980s, was an offensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers and UCLA assistant coach with Rick Neuheisal, become the head coach at Diamond Bar? Johnson, who became the interim head coach at UCLA when Neuheisal was fired, apparently contacted Diamond Bar athletic director Kurt Davies about the position, Davies confirmed. Johnson, who was not retained by UCLA when Jim Mora was hired in 2012, still lives in the Bay area. The dilemma for Diamond Bar officials is that Johnson might not be interested in teaching, and would need to be compensated in other ways, probably through camps and other incentives, according to sources. What Diamond Bar needs to consider is do you hire a big-name like Johnson and run with it, or do you go another direction worrying that he could leave after a brief stay?

After reports that he was missing, former Charter Oak standout Adam Muema reaches out on social media twitter and instagram

HERE IS WHAT MUEMA POSTED ON INSTAGRAM EARLY THIS MORNING: Okay here’s is the Seahawks #8 story. I was given #8 the first time playing football started to love this number.

THURSDAY’S STORY: The unusual behavior of former Charter Oak High School running back Adam Muema, who left the NFL Scouting Combine last weekend without working out after saying he was “following God” has become rapidly more concerning to his former high school coaches and longtime friends.

Muema, who was this newspaper’s Player of the Year in 2009 after a stellar prep career, starred in college at San Diego St. before declaring for the NFL Draft last fall as a junior.

Nobody has seen Muema since last weekend when he left Indianapolis, Ind. where the NFL Scouting Combine is held. He said that by not participating in the workouts he would realize his dream of playing for the Seattle Seahawks. He also said God told him to sit down and enjoy the peace.

Baldwin Park wins late Baldwin Park is a game away from playing for its second championship in four years after outlasting host Diamond Bar 2-1 in the CIF-Southern Section Division 5 boys soccer playoffs on Thursday, getting a 75th minute goal from junior Cesar Medina for the game winner.
Diamond Bar, which scored a goal in the final minutes against second-seed Monrovia to tie it and eventually win in penalty kicks, nearly sent the game to overtime again.
On a 20-yard free kick with less than a minute remaining, Brahmas senior Andre Gamboa ricocheted his shot off the post, and Baldwin Park was celebrating shortly after.

Sierra Vista moves on: Possession might be nine-tenths of the law in real life, but in soccer possession is not everything, or even 90 percent.
On Thursday afternoon, Ontario had the majority of the possession, but it was Baldwin Park Sierra Vista that had the better chances and better results.
Michael Flores scored two goals and the Dons downed defending CIF-SS champion Ontario 3-0 in a Division 4 boys soccer quarterfinal game at Ontario High School.

Northview rally comes up short: The best season ever for the Northview High School boys soccer team will not include a CIF-Southern Section championship, but the Vikings died hard Thursday.
Jorge Cardenas had two assists and top seed Santiago, of Garden Grove, held off Northview’s second-half charge to score a 3-2 victory in a Division 5 quarterfinal game at West Covina High School.
The Cavaliers, getting goals from Derian Lopez, David Yepez and Israel Espinoza, improved to 18-4-4 and will face Marshall, which beat Godinez on penalty kicks, in Tuesday’s semifinals.
Northview, getting goals from Carlos Maya and Robert Munoz, both in the second half, finished 17-5-2. It was the Vikings’ first trip to the quarterfinals.

Where is former Charter Oak RB Adam Muema? He hasn’t been seen since leaving NFL combine because God told him to do it and saying he would play for Super Bowl champion Seattle

“All I can say is I’m reading the reports just like everybody else is,” veteran Charter Oak coach Lou Farrar said. “This is different from the Adam I knew and saw everyday here on campus. He never walked away from any responsibility.”

gladboysCINDERELLA GLADSTONE FALLS TO NO. 2 ST. FRANCIS: Cinderella’s glass slipper was decided by athleticism.
Gladstone High School was making its first CIF-Southern Section boys basketball playoff quarterfinal appearance in 41 years. St. Francis was trying to make a semifinal game for the first time in school history.
The Golden Knights will still live that Cinderella dream after scoring a 55-43 Division 3A victory on Tuesday night. St. Francis will play cross-lawn rival La Canada in Friday’s semifinals


GREAT OAK 71, DAMIEN 65
TEMECULA —
Damien High School coach Matt Dunn, despite seeing his team team win 23 of 31 games during the regular season, believed something wasn’t quite right with his Spartans this season.
Those concerns came to fruition Tuesday night.
Torrin Webb scored 24 points and Latrelle Franklin had 18 and host Great Oak ousted Damien from the CIF-Southern Section playoffs with a 71-65 victory in a Division IAA second-round game.
Great Oak, also getting 11 points from Isaiah Wesby and 10 from Jeremy Smith, improved to 20-8 and will travel to Inglewood for Friday’s quarterfinals.

Jeremy Hemsley scored 37 points for the Spartans, who finished 24-9. It’s the Spartans earliest playoff exit since 2008.

Damien coach Matt Dunn: “You have to give them credit. They’re a great team and they played really well. All year long we weren’t able to get a couple of things fixed. We didn’t get any loose balls, we didn’t rebound the ball, and ultimately in games like this, those come back to get you. It’s frustrating to have the same problem all year and not get it fixed, and that’s disappointing.”

BISHOP AMAT ELIMINATED: Bishop Amat senior Eric Fonseca fought back tears following a 62-42 loss to top-seeded Santa Barbara in the quarterfinals of the CIF-Southern Section Division 3A boys basketball playoffs on Tuesday, a tough end for a player and team that few thought could reach the Elite Eight.
“I wouldn’t pick a different team to fight with,” Fonseca said. “We worked hard to get here. Losing isn’t fun, but we came a long way.”

DIAMOND BAR ADVANCES: A near-perfectly played CIF Southern Section soccer playoff game came down a matter of misses.
After visiting Diamond Bar and Monrovia played to a 2-2 tie after 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime, the Brahmas prevailed, outscoring the No. 2 seed Wildcats 3-2 on penalty kicks to advance to Thursday’s Division 5 quarterfinal. The Brahmas will play host to Baldwin Park.

vegascoresVEGA GOES NUTS: Danny Vega was a seldom used freshman when Baldwin Park won a CIF-Southern Section Divisional boys soccer title in 2011.
Now he’s the guiding force to the Braves’ chances of winning their second championship in four years, showing why and how by scoring all four goals in an easy 4-0 victory over visiting Laguna Beach in the second round of the Division 5 playoffs on Tuesday.
Vega scored on a penalty kick in the 13th minute, and worked a text book give-and-go with Jesus Granados to go up 2-0 in the 23rd minute.
Valle Vista league champion Baldwin Park (18-4-2) will be on the road in Thursday’s quarterfinals against Diamond Bar (17-7-1), who outlasted No. 2 seed Monrovia in penalty kicks 3-2 after a 2-2 tie in regulation and two overtimes.

Chuck Lyons, who played on Gladstone’s 1973 quarterfinal team, shared his memories

Gladstone High School is in the boys basketball quarterfinals for the first time since 1973, facing No. 2 seed St. Francis on the road tonight at 7 in Division 3A. The last time they were in this situation was 41-years ago, when they lost 84-68 to Brawley after a long bus ride. Local resident Chuck Lyons, who played on that team, shared his memories of the season, and what it meant to be a Gladstone athlete four decades ago. The amazing part I took away from this was the school spirit and participation back then. Taking 11 buses to a playoff game? That’s Hoosiers stuff. Incredible. Too bad we don’t witness more of that today.

CHUCK LYONS, CLASS OF 1973: We lost after a five or six hour bus ride to Brawley so we were tired in the second half, and everyone was important to our success on that team, not just Jack Clark, who was a good guy. The starting five in alpha order because all added their own valuable strengths to the team, were David Castaneda, Jack Clark, Chuck Lyons, Eric Mustad and Casey Ruud, with Casey’s brother John probably still the school record holder with a 42-point and 35-rebound performance in a CIF playoff game when Gladstone was new in the late 1960s.
I can’t speak for the other players because I haven’t talked to them in years, my great memories of that team were that while the fans at Gladstone (classmates, parents and families, staff, neighbors and business people in the community) probably say that they were happy to be included (we took 11 rooter buses to Brawley because we couldn’t find any more buses to rent with people still wanting to go), some of my most vivid memories were our fans.

Former Charter Oak standout Adam Muema tells U-T San Diego that God told him to leave the NFL combine and that he would play for the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks

Adam Muema, a former Charter Oak standout who helped the Chargers earn back-to-back CIF-Southern Section titles in 2008 and ’09, told U-T San Diego that he left the NFL Combine on Sunday because God told him to do it. Muema, who played at San Diego State, reportedly said that he was “following God” who told him if he missed workouts he would play for the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

“[God] told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace,” Muema told the U-T.

Northview High School has been one of the CIF-Southern Section’s elite programs for nearly two decades, and the Vikings added to that lore Saturday.
Senior Bryan Salinas, a favorite to win a state title, led a group of three Northview athletes who earned individual titles and the Vikings won their fourth consecutive team title at the Central Division championships at Norte Vista High.

DAMIEN 71, DIAMOND BAR 33

LA VERNE — Any thought of the Damien High School boys basketball team resting on its laurels of last season’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3AA championship, it’s first the 50-plus history of the school, were quickly put to rest Friday.
Jeremy Hemsley scored 16 points and Malik Fitts had 12 and the Spartans opened the Division IAA playoffs with a bang, routing Diamond Bar, 71-33.
Damien, the division’s No. 4 seed, improved to 22-6 and will face either No. 13 Great Oak or Highland in Tuesday’s second round, Diamond Bar, getting eight points from Leo Li and seven from Christian Manalo, finished 11-17.
The Spartans put this one away by halftime, holding the Brahmas to four field goals in the first half and led 36-11.
Damien, getting a 3-pointer by Micah Robinson and consecutive inside shots by Bryce Peters and Isaiah McCullough opened the game with a 12-4 run before opening the second quarter with a 12-2 surge to go up 26-9 following a 6-footer by Hemsley and 3-pointer by Fitts and a dunk off a turnover by the Fitts for a 26-9 lead with 3:51 left in the half.
The Spartans then closed the quarter with a 10-2 run for its 36-11 lead.
Damien opened the third quarter with an 11-5 surge to put it away at 47-16.

Damein’s Jeremy Hemsley: “This was a game to prove to people that we’re ready to make another run like last year. I think we did a pretty good job, both defensively and offensively. We had four days to prepare. We were ready. I think we just knew more about them than they knew about it us.”

Malik Fitts: “This is a game we were looking forward to. It’s playoff time, so everyone was a little excited. We didn’t get off to a great start, but we finished strong. I’m proud of my team for that.”
Diamond Bar’s Leo Li: “They’re a good team. We didn’t play our best game. But they’re a good team. I will give them that. We just didn’t execute.”

BISHOP AMAT-DIAMOND BAR WILL MEET AGAIN: While Bishop Amat was coasting to a 6-0 victory over Santa Paula in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 girls soccer playoffs, Diamond Bar was finishing an incredible comeback, winning 2-1 over Mayfield in sudden-death overtime.
Bishop Amat will meet Diamond Bar in the second round on Wednesday at a site to be determined. It’s a rematch of last year thrilling quarterfinal won by Amat 4-3 in overtime.
“We know they’re (Amat) a great team,” Diamond Bar coach Matt Brummett said. “We look forward to playing them again.”
Diamond Bar’s Marissa Favela, who made an inspiring return to the team late in the season after battling cancer, scored the game-tying goal in the dying seconds of regulation, then scored the game-winner on a 35-yard free kick in overtime to win it for the Brahmas.

Mario Saenz delivers for Sierra Vista: The Sierra Vista High School boys soccer team entered Thursday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 4 boys first-round playoff game against visiting Culver City after learning earlier in the day it had lost junior forward Sebastian Ocampo, who was declared academically ineligible after scoring 24 goals and a big reason the Dons were undefeated and the second seed.
But Sierra Vista still has part of its dynamic duo with senior striker Mario Saenz, who picked up the slack by scoring both goals in the Dons’ 2-1 victory over the Centaurs to advance to Tuesday’s second round against either Bishop Amat or La Mirada.

LA SALLE 55, WORKMAN 41

INDUSTRY – La Salle High School struggled a bit while playing in arguably the toughest girls basketball league in the CIF-Southern Section.
But the payoff for being in the rugged Del Rey League, which features powers Serra, Bishop Amat and Bishop Montgomery, came Thursday night.
Claire Fitzgerald scored a game-high 26 points to lead the Lancers to a 55-41 victory over host Workman in a CIF-Southern Section Division 4AA first-round game.
La Salle, also getting 10 points each from Caroline Knop and Dionna Williams, improved to 12-13 and will face either Flintridge Sacred Heart or No. 9 29 Palms in Saturday’s second round. The Lancers are the No. 8 seed.
Alize Williams had 22 points for Workman, which finished 18-9.
La Salle nearly put this one away during the first quarter, using a 16-2 run to start the game to take command. Williams finished the opening period with 14 points as the Lancers led 20-5. Workman was held to two field goals and committed five turnovers during the first five minutes.
But the Lobos, who went 13-1 in winning the Montview League, rallied. Workman, also getting 12 points from Alicia Aguirre, cut it to 24-15 early in the second quarter. Then after falling behind by 15 in the fourth quarter, the Lobos rallied to within 10 before two missed opportunities sealed their fate.

La Salle’s Claire Fitzgerald: “Playing those really great teams (in the Del Rey League) prepared us for the playoffs, because they are great teams. We were just 1-7 in league, but playing those great teams help us prepare for the playoffs.”

Workman’s Alize Williams: “We were on a downfall at first. We had to talk it up and see what we could do. It was tough.”

Gladstone hangs on in the final seconds for a 46-45 victory over Laguna Hills in Wednesday’s Division 3A playoff. The Gladiators are an impressive 23-3, getting a team-high 13 points from Ben Reaves and 12 from inside bruiser Eddie Servin. We talked to both along with coach Gary Kilmer, as well as video of the final moments. Take a look

Bonita advances: Bonita knew San Gorgonio had a size advantage, so the Bearcats did the logical thing: they stayed outside.
Bonita jumped out to a 10-point lead after the first quarter and San Gorgonio never recovered, as Bonita pulled away late for a 63-43 victory in a CIF-SS Division 3AA first-round boys basketball game on Wednesday night.

Bishop Amat advances with defense: A young Bishop Amat boys basketball team overcame some early jitters and used a stifling defense to knock off Hawthorne 59-44 in a CIF-Southern Section Division 3A first-round game on Wednesday night.
The eighth-seeded Lancers will play the winner of the Pomona-Antelope Valley game at 7p.m. on Friday night at a site to be determined.

La Puente comes up short: The La Mirada High School boys basketball team hasn’t been out of the first round in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs in five years.
Wednesday night at La Mirada, the Matadores erased that memory and gave third-year coach Bryce Jones his first playoff win with a 65-41 victory in the first round of Division 3AA over La Puente.

SAN DIMAS 68, SOUTH EL MONTE 66

SOUTH EL MONTE >> If the CIF-Southern Section boys basketball playoffs are all about advancing and surviving, then San Dimas High School certainly fit the bill on Wednesday.
Ryan Campo scored a game-high 20 points and the Saints withstood a rally by host South El Monte to score a 68-66 victory over the Eagles in a Division 3A first-round game.
San Dimas, also getting 14 points from Elias Hernandez and 10 from Greyson McGee, improved to 12-13 and will host No. 2 seed St. Francis in the second round on Friday.
South El Monte, getting 18 points each from Eduardo Hernandez and Alex Ortiz, finished 13-8. The Eagles, who trailed as much as 24 points during the first half, had a chance to win it at the end, but Marcos Lopez’ 3-point attempt at the buzzer was tipped and fell short.

South El Monte coach Robert Burgess: “We didn’t have any time outs left, so I did’t have a chance to set anything up. I really hoped we would just take the ball to the basket, because we were only down two. He thought he was open and tried the 3-pointer.”

San Dimas’ Ryan Ocampo: “They came at us. We thought we had the game already in our hands, but they came back. We had to calm down, regroup and grind it out. We just had to come out with the win.”

Azusa High School’s Patrick Cordova-Goff, the state’s first transgender student athlete, attends first practice with the Aztecs softball team

Photo Gallery of Azusa softball practice

patgoffBy Fred J. Robledo
Normally the first day of practice isn’t a big deal, but at Azusa High School, it was a groundbreaking moment as senior Patrick Cordova-Goff, the state’s first transgender student-athlete, attended her first practice with the Aztecs softball team after learning last week she made the varsity team following tryouts.

Cordova-Goff, who was born male, but identifies herself a female, took fly balls and played briefly at third base during the nearly two-hour practice on Tuesday.

New rules that went into effect for the 2013-2014 sports season state that students can participate in CIF-State activities “in a manner that is consistent with their gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on a student’s records.”

Cordova-Goff, who also ran for homecoming queen and was a member of the school’s cheer squad, tried out for softball because of a new law that began in January written by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano — Assembly Bill 1266 — that states all schools in California have to allow students to participate in school activities — including athletic teams and competitions — and use facilities consistent with the gender identity with which the student identifies.

CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION BOYS/GIRLS SOCCER PLAYOFF PAIRINGS

BOYS PLAYOFF PREVIEW: The stage is set following the release of the CIF-Southern Section Boys Soccer playoff pairings on Monday with undefeated and second-seed Sierra Vista (20-0-2) in Division 4 hoping to run the table and take on powerhouse and top seed Cathedral (21-1-1), ranked fifth in the state and 23rd nationally by MaxPreps in a much anticipated final.
But there’s a lot of work ahead to reach the finals for the Dons, starting with Thursday’s first-round game against the winner of Tuesday’s wild-card between Saugus and Culver City.

GIRLS PLAYOFF PREVIEW: Los Altos High School girls soccer coach Chris Reeder has had several talented teams over the years that have gone deep in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs, but earning the second-seed following the release of Monday’s girls soccer pairings goes hand-in-hand with Reeder arguing that this is probably his best team in nearly a decade at the school.
Los Altos (18-2-3), which went undefeated in the Hacienda League, will face the winner of Wednesday’s wild-card between Atascadero (13-11-1) and Bishop Montgomery (12-9-12) in Friday’s first-round.
“We have the complete team to go (far),” Reeder said. “We don’t have any glaring weakness, but the big challenge is going to be mental. We have some young players on this team and they have to be ready to go.”

Damien High School, which won last season’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3AA championship, began this season as the area’s best chance to bring home a boys basketball title.
The Spartans still possess the area’s best hope after receiving a top-four seed after the CIF-Southern Section released its playoff pairings Sunday.
Damien, ranked No. 1 in the area most of the season, drew the No. 4 seed in Division 1AA and will host Diamond Bar, a former league foe, in the first round at 7 p.m. on Friday. The Spartans were one of 10 local teams to receive a top-16 seed among the 11 divisions but the only one to receive a top-four ranking.
Other area seeds were Walnut (14) in 1AA; Glendora (6) in 2AA; Los Altos (14) in 2A; Bonita (12) in 3AA; Bishop Amat (8), El Monte (12), Gladstone (10) and South El Monte (15) in 3A and Workman (15) in 4AA.

Damien coach Matt Dunn: It’s kind of funny. We’ve had years where we won a bunch of games, there’s been years where we struggled at the end. But ultimately, I think it comes down to whether your guys want to keep playing, and we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do that. I feel our guys are really excited for the playoffs. I think we’re in a good spot. We still have our best basketball ahead of us.”

Bonita High School has seen its quest for a CIF-Southern Section girls basketball title come up short in recent seasons. But the Bearcats may have their best opportunity yet.
Bonita, after winning another Hacienda League title, received the top seed in Division 1AA when the CIF-SS released playoff pairings on Sunday. The Bearcats, who lost in the semifinals last season and in the finals in 2011, will host Silverado in the first round on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Bonita is one of six area teams to receive a top-16 placement, with Bishop Amat No. 5 in 1AA and Diamond Ranch No. 4 in 3AA. The others are South Hills (10) and Wilson (15) in 3AA and Covina (11) in 3A.
