OT Goal Lifts BHHS Soccer

February 5, 2012

Ashley Aviram has been scoring big goals all season for the Beverly Hills High School girls varsity soccer team, so it’s no surprise that she tallied the Normans’ biggest one when it was needed the most. The junior rocketed a direct free kick over the head of Santa Monica High School goalkeeper Sarah Lipshy from 35 yards out early in the 93rd minute to propel the Normans to a 1-1 tie against the Vikings Friday night at Nickoll Field. Had the Normans lost, they would’ve had to defeat Inglewood and archrival Culver City to clinch their first league crown since joining the Ocean League in 2004. Now, they need only to tie one of their final two games to capture the title outright. “I normally take the free kicks from there and I was just trying to put it on frame,” Aviram said of her team-best 22nd goal. “I was very upset that we were losing. Of course we wanted to win, but we knew a tie would be sufficient.” It was perhaps one of the most satisfying games coach Scott Franks has experienced with the Normans—either as a player or coach. He was a center midfielder for boys coach Steve Rappaport from 1992-96 and has piloted the girls program for nine years. What made it all the more rewarding is that Aviram’s goal was almost identical to the overtime goal she scored to beat the Vikings on their own field earlier in the season. “She’s so clutch,” Franks said of Aviram, who is four goals shy of the school single-season record held by Emily Litvak and just eight away from Litvak’s career scoring record of 55 goals. “We knew a tied would work in our favor so we took a more conservative approach to the game. But when they scored we had to go into attack mode and we moved [Aviram] up to the front from stopper. She couldn’t have placed it any better.” Santa Monica broke the scoreless tie in the 83rd minute with a redirection by striker Brenda Torres-Matos off a high corner kick from Kristen Vasquez. However, it only made the Normans more determined to find the back of the net themselves. Beverly Hills’ senior goalkeeper Ida Trevino entered the game having allowed just one goal in league play and rose to the challenge once again Friday, making 17 saves while constantly communicating with her defenders. By the time the final whistle blew she had almost no voice left to cheer. “My heart was pounding the whole game. I was yelling the whole time,” Trevino said. ”We knew the situation going into it, how important it was not to lose. I’m overall really calm but when we got behind I knew we needed to score. I was trying to stay really positive.”   Franks recognized that Trevino’s experience showed in the final minutes. “She was All-League last year, she will be again this year and she was on top of her game tonight,” he said. “To have the presence of mind to trap the ball with her chest and waste 30 seconds on the clock shows how sharp she is and how aware she is of the situation.” BHHS wraps up the regular season at home Tuesday against Inglewood (a team the Normans routed 7-0 in their first meeting) and then Thursday at archrival Culver City, which lost 1-0 on a goal by Beverly Hills’ Tiffany Moore in their first encounter.   “This is the pinnacle because I have so much respect for [Samohi] and there’s nothing I wanted more this season than to win league,” Franks said. “We started the season 3-4, we had a lot of egos and we had some injuries. To overcome it all and be where we are now, I couldn’t be more proud. The girls did what they had to do.” MATCH STATISTICS  Goals: Santa Monica—Brenda Torres-Matos, 83rd minute. Beverly Hills—Ashley Aviram, 93rd minute. Saves: Santa Monica—11, Sarah Lipshy. Beverly Hills—12, Ida Trevino. Records:  Santa Monica 10-5-3 overall, 5-2-1 league; Beverly Hills 12-5-3, 7-0-1.

Nuggets Save L.A. Trip With Win Over Lakers

January 2, 2012

DENVER — Danilo Gallinari scored 20 points, Ty Lawson had 17 points and 10 assists and the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 99-90 on Sunday night. Nene had 13 points for the Nuggets, who avenged a three-point loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles less than 24 hours earlier. Pau Gasol had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Andrew Bynum had 18 points and 16 rebounds for the Lakers. Kobe Bryant scored 16 points on 6-of-28 shooting. After a seesaw battle for most of the final period, the Nuggets scored the final 11 points to pull out the win. Gallinari scored two fast-break layups to give Denver a two-point lead with 2:07 left. After Gasol missed a short turnaround jumper, Lawson’s layup gave the Nuggets a 94-90 lead with 1:20 left. Bryant missed a 3-pointer from the top of the circle and Harrington hit a 12-foot jumper to make it 96-90 with 49 seconds left. The Lakers took a 90-88 lead on Bryant’s layup with 2:47 left and didn’t score again. Trailing by 11 at halftime, the Lakers came out strong in the third quarter. Bynum scored seven points in the first four minutes, including a three-point play that tied it at 50-all. Denver didn’t hit its first field goal of the second half until Lawson’s drive gave the Nuggets the lead back with 7:03 left. Gallinari followed with Denver’s first 3-pointer of the game to make it 55-50. Denver’s lead grew to nine late in the third before the Lakers made another run to pull to 72-71 heading into the fourth. Bryant missed his first five shots and committed two offensive fouls before sitting in the final minute of the first quarter. He returned midway through the second, hit a 3-pointer but missed his next four. The Lakers team didn’t fare any better. Los Angeles missed its last 11 shots of the first half and shot just 32 percent at the break. The Nuggets struggled from the field, too, missing all nine of their 3-point shots before the break, but they surged at the end of the second quarter. Leading 39-36, Al Harrington hit four free throws and had a nice interior pass to set up a dunk by Chris Andersen that helped Denver take a 47-36 lead at halftime. NOTES: Denver was 2 for 18 from 3-point range. … The Lakers have played six games in the first eight days of the season, including three in three nights to open the schedule. … Lawson has scored in double figures in four of Denver’s first five games. … Denver came into Sunday second in scoring in the NBA but 24th in 3-point shooting.

Hotel Robber Nabbed by Good Samaritans Visiting Los Angeles for Martial Arts Tournament

Hotel Robber Nabbed by Good Samaritans Visiting Los Angeles for Martial Arts Tournament

Los Angeles: On November 2, 2011, at around 11:40 pm, Rampart Division officers responded to a radio call of an “Assault suspect armed with a gun” at a hotel located in the 300 block of N. Vermont Avenue. When the officer’s arrived, they saw a man on the ground being held by two citizens. Shortly before police arrived, the desk clerk at a local hotel took notice of a man with a back pack who walked into the lobby and began to suspiciously look around. He asked the clerk about the price of a room, and then pointed a gun at him and demanded money. The suspect walked around the counter where the clerk stood and told him to open the cash register. The clerk, fearing he was going to be shot, opened the register and gave the suspect money. During the robbery, an elevator door opened, and two hotel guests who happened to be martial arts experts visiting Los Angeles from Oregon for a martial arts’ tournament heard the clerk’s cry for help and immediately took action. The pair grabbed the suspect who was holding a gun in his right hand. During the tussle with the suspect, the Good Samaritans repeatedly asked him to drop the gun and stop struggling. The pair was finally able to wrestle the gun from the suspect and took him to the ground with a leg sweep and then held him on the ground until Rampart Division officers arrived. The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Luis Rosales, a resident of Los Angeles, was taken into custody without further incident. In addition, a loaded 9mm …
