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.
Samantha Mayer put the Spartans on the board early in the second half on an assist from Charlotte Tapp, and the Rams struggled to muster any offense. The visitors took advantage of a defensive miscue from La Cañada to make it even, 1-1, late in the match.
The Spartans (7-10-3 overall record, 4-1-2 in league) will conclude the regular season at South Pasadena today at 3:30 p.m.
