HART MOVED SOUTHERN SECTION'S DESERT REGION; CANYON COACH SAYS INDIANS SHOULD `GO PRETTY FAR'.Byline: Lee Barnathan and Patrick Hipes Daily News Staff Writers
Some team had to be moved into the Riverside/San Bernardino desert region. It was Hart High, and one other local coach thinks it's a great move.
``The desert's not as strong,'' Canyon coach Gregg Cohen cohen

The biblical priesthood was hereditary and male. said. ``I've seen the desert players at the club level. The Riverside area has not impressed me. I think they'll go pretty far, at least to the semifinal.''
The top four teams in the Southern Section coaches poll usually earn top seeds in the playoff brackets. If there is no team from the region among the top four, someone gets moved.
Hart (20-2-3) was taken out of its region, which included Simi Valley Simi Valley (sē`mē, sĭm`ē), city (1990 pop. 100,217), Ventura co., SW Calif. in an oil, fruit, and farm region; laid out 1887, inc. 1969. , Crescenta Valley The Crescenta Valley is a small inland valley in Los Angeles County, California. Its name derives from its crescent-like shape, with the convex portion facing roughly northeast and the concave portion southwest. , Thousand Oaks Thousand Oaks, residential city (1990 pop. 104,352), Ventura co., S Calif., in a farm area; inc. 1964.

The Indians (20-2-3) romped all over Colton 8-1 in Saturday's Southern Section Division I first-round match. They host Jurupa Valley today at 3 p.m.
Hart coach Oliver Germond said Colton didn't put up nearly the fight Crescenta Valley did in last year's first round.
``This was a joke after 10 minutes,'' Germond said. Hart led 3-0 at that point.
Germond added he doesn't care who Hart plays. ``I just hope we play at home,'' he said.
Last year, Hart won two coin flips and played four out of five playoff matches at home, which helped it make a run to the final.
This year, with any possible travel longer than last year, winning coin flips helps. Germond is 3-0 in his last three, compared to football coach Mike Herrington (1-10) and girls' basketball coach Dave Munroe (1-8).
Erin Misaki leads the team with 18 goals, one more than Mandy Stupar and Kellie Nordhagen.

``The injuries piled up on top of each other,'' Cohen said. ``It was a rough, physical game.''
Too much, too late: It was no better for the Canyon boys' team, which was flying high after winning its first Foothill League title since 1991.

``I don't personally know, but I've been told a Foothill League team has never beaten a Channel team in the playoffs,'' said Cowboys coach John Robb John Robb may refer to:
The Cowboys played the majority of the game without outside midfielder/sweeper Pat Terry, limited by a groin pull. Still, Robb said his squad had the better of play in the first half but couldn't convert opportunity into result.
``It's a disappointing way to go out,'' said the first-year coach. ``But we accomplished what we wanted to do this year - win the league championship. It's the first thing we said after the loss.''
