Such comebacks have not been required this year as the Highlanders of Simi Valley have dominated opponents while living up to their No. 1 seeding and drawing within two wins of the Southern Section title they’ve coveted since losing in last season’s final.This year, the late comebacks belong to a pair of Pacific League teams that join Royal as the local representatives in today’s Southern Section semifinals.Crescenta Valley and Glendale look for the comebacks to keep coming when they try to upset Mira Costa and Upland respectively in Division III matches. Royal faces No. Division IV game at UC Santa Barbara for a berth in Wednesday’s final against the Dos Pueblos Santa Barbara winner.A victory by unseeded Glendale over No. 4 Upland combined with No. 3 Crescenta Valley defeating No. 2 Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach would set up a rematch of the Pacific League final in Tuesday’s division championship at Belmont Plaza. However, the manner in which the league rivals reached this point suggests advancing won’t come easily.David Mulcahey scored the game winner for Crescenta Valley in overtime Tuesday against La Serna to give the Falcons (23 4) their second consecutive one point victory. Although the resiliency is encouraging, the close scores in early rounds are not.Beating Bay League champion Mira Costa (20 7) in the 3:15 game at Loyola Marymount requires shutting down Tyler Krikorian, who gave the Mustangs a come from behind victory of their own in the quarterfinals. He scored two goals in the closing minutes for a 9 8 win over South Pasadena.Glendale is more familiar with the role of underdog and should not be bothered by it. The Dynamiters (23 5) already eliminated the No. 1 seed and stayed within at least three goals during league games against Pacific champion Crescenta Valley.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!

What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.

Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet.  He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.

Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
