When it comes to most valuable players for the summer of 2011, put left-hander Kiefer Kofman of Chatsworth near the top of any list. Kofman has been so impressive on the mound and at the plate this summer that he has stamped himself as one of the top baseball players in the City Section next spring. On Wednesday in a semifinal game of the Valley Invitational Baseball League playoffs, he retired 16 consecutive batters between the second and seventh innings en route to a three-hitter, leading Chatsworth to a 4-0 victory over Simi Valley Royal.

With San Fernando having won the City Section baseball championship twice in the last three years, people seem to be thinking that powers Chatsworth and Woodland Hills El Camino Real are on the decline.

The Chancellors have been showing off three young pitchers in sophomore Josh Garcia and juniors Anthony Mayorga and John Cashman.

Two men remained in custody Saturday, suspected of setting a small brush fire in an unincorporated area of Chatsworth. The fire was reported about 4:30 p.m. Friday northwest of the intersection of Valley Circle and Roscoe boulevards, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. Matthew Squire. Los Angeles city and county firefighters as well as Ventura County crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze, which was contained to under one acre and did not threaten any structures. Witnesses described two men who had been seen in the area and an investigation led to the arrest of Mario Giovanni Zuvic and Jameson Raymond Hunt, both 20. The two were arrested on suspicion of arson and booked into the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station with bail set at $75,000 each.

A huge weight was lifted off the shoulders of a group of Chatsworth athletes when Bob Evans opened up his garage to them. The half a dozen veterans of a lifetime of muscle building found themselves without a place to work out two years ago when their friend Kevin Meskew was forced to close the fitness center where they all congregated twice each week. The power-lifters — most in their 60s and 70s — discovered that health clubs filled with young people doing aerobics and Pilates and taking spinning classes were wary of senior citizens coming in and hoisting 500-pound barbells over their heads.

San Fernando Coach Armando Gomez walked to the mound in the bottom of the seventh inning of the City Section Division I championship game at Dodger Stadium to have a quick talk with his starting pitcher, Jose Reyes. "Believe, believe, believe. My coach just told me to believe," Reyes said. Reyes gave up consecutive singles to start the inning, then got three consecutive outs, the last of which was a force play at second that triggered a celebratory dog pile and completed an 8-6 victory over top-seeded Chatsworth.

Granada Hills Kennedy beat Chatsworth, 1-0, to win the City Section softball championship Wednesday, but the victory came with some controversy. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the second inning, Kellie Mason hit a line drive to second base that was ruled a catch. Ashley Waters then threw home for the double play, but the catcher did not tag Danielle Estrada, who was the runner from third. Kennedy Coach Craig Becker had Estrada return to third and tag up as Chatsworth left the field, and because Chatsworth didn't throw to third to appeal, the run counted.

Expectations are always high when Chatsworth and Woodland Hills El Camino Real players put on a baseball uniform. The two schools have combined to win 16 City Section championships and produce a glittering group of major league players. So it's going to be hard to explain what transpired Tuesday in a West Valley League opener in which the teams combined for seven errors, 11 walks, four hit batters and a sometimes chaotic play. The game ended when Nick Milone delivered a run-scoring single in the bottom of the eighth inning for a 10-9 Chatsworth victory.
