La Cañada, Flintridge Prep Secure League Championships

The La Cañada High School surrendered a late goal and tied visiting Temple City, 1-1, in a Rio Hondo League match on Tuesday, but the draw was just as good as a win for the Spartans as they clinched the Rio Hondo League championship outright for the first time since 2014.
