Christina Hewko, a senior this fall at Corona del Mar High, scored twice in an 11-5 Team USA victory over the Australia "B" entry in a five-game girls water polo series Down Under, and scored in a final 6-5 loss to Australia "A" to wind up competition Sunday. In the 11-5 victory, Long Beach Shore's Lauren Silver led the U.S. offensive with three goals, while Elsie Windes, Courtney Matheson and Hewko each scored twice. A 2-0 spurt in the second quarter expanded the U.S. lead to 5-2 at halftime, and a 4-2 run in the third period put it on ice. In the final match of what was a 3-1-1 overall record for the U.S., Hewko and her teammates were within a 6-5 count entering the final quarter, but both teams went scorelesss in the final segment.

Director Baz Luhrmann loves lavish spectacle just for the pure giddiness of it all. It worked in “Moulin Rouge” but comes across as a bit silly in “Australia,” an epic wannabe set just before World War II that’s as contrived as Nicole Kidman’s Brit accent.

NEWPORT BEACH — The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia is from the land Down Under. It almost found itself going down into the Pacific Ocean Friday. The three-man crew wasn't too thrilled about having water coming into its keelboat. Another boat struck Australia's during the second round of round-robin action at the 41st annual Governor's Cup hosted by the Balboa Yacht Club. Fortunately for Australia, the team hitting it was the Southern Yacht Club of New Orleans.

East or West, who cares where the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia is because it is well, cruising. Jon English still has no clue where he is. That's the least of his concerns, because the weather, 75 degrees, this time of the year is paradise for the three-man crew and its coach. Back home it's winter and the last couple of days in Sydney have been blistering cold. So after wrapping up another day of regatta racing at the 41st annual Governor's Cup, Australia stays under the sun longer than the rest of the competition at the Balboa Yacht Club.
