COSTA MESA — It had been 21 years since Estancia High last won an outright football league title.
The Eagles were in a rush Friday night to end the drought.
Estancia scored its first three touchdowns in the Battle for the Bell fast and put away Costa Mesa, 35-6, at Jim Scott Stadium, closing out an undefeated Orange Coast League season.
The Eagles ended a two-game losing streak in the rivalry game and hurt the Mustangs' CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoff hopes.
When the postseason begins next week, Estancia (6-4, 5-0 in league) will have a home game. The Mustangs' playoff fate was out of their hands. They needed to upset the Eagles to keep their chances alive.
Costa Mesa (3-7, 2-3) will miss the playoffs after Calvary Chapel defeated Godinez, 47-35. Calvary Chapel and Godinez each finished 3-2 in league and earned the league's second and third playoff entries.
