Joseph Boo ANAHEIM - Watching Costa Mesa Coach Bob Serven yell at his team going against Buena Park in the Canyon Classic on Wednesday, you would think his team was losing. Instead, the Mustangs led for almost the entire game to win, 61-60. The victory came despite a sluggish Costa Mesa performance and an offensive rebounding clinic from Buena Park. "Well, it's better to win these games than to lose," Serven said. The Mustangs will face Canyon in the fifth-place game today, at 1:30 p.m. Costa Mesa (11-4)

COSTA MESA — Nothing seemed to be working through the air. Passes were too short, too long, or just dropped by the Estancia High football team during Friday night’s nonleague game against Buena Park. No problem for the Eagles. Senior quarterback Radames Gutierrez took matters into his own hands. Gutierrez scored a pair of rushing touchdowns, helping Estancia come from behind for a 21-6 victory. “They were more physical than us the first half, then we got the run going there,” Coach Mike Bargas said.

Estancia High football coach Brian Barnes has watched his Eagles outscore their first two opponents, Mark Keppel and Bolsa Grande, a combined 100-7. But he knows there are still doubters. Barnes believes his team, ranked No. 9 in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division, will gain more respect with a win against Buena Park (0-1) tonight at 7 at Newport Harbor High. "Even though it's only Week Three for us, it's a defining game in our season," Barnes said. "A lot of people aren't sure the Eagles are very good.

Holiday shoppers weren't the only ones who planned to spend Saturday at Fashion Island. Two Newport Beach police officers - mounted on horseback - were also set to arrive during the hectic hunting of last-minute Christmas gifts. They will return once more on Monday. This year marks the first time the horses, named Pistol and Levi, have helped with the seasonal watch, said Lt. Matthew Graham, one of the two officers certified for mounted patrol. Graham and Officer Shawn Dugan joined the Orange County Regional Mounted Enforcement Unit in June . Newport Beach is one of six agencies involved, along with the Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Buena Park and Anaheim police departments and the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Second story in an occasional series about Costa Mesa's troubled motels. On a typical weekend evening at the Costa Mesa Motor Inn, kids scamper through the labyrinthine courtyard as pairs of neighbors lean on walkway railings, smoking and chatting in the fading light. Potted plants sit on window sills and on air conditioning units mounted on the stucco walls. Colorful, makeshift curtains cover windows. Inside one of the rooms, the odor from decades of people smoking cigarettes wafts from the carpet with each step and then lingers in the generic floral bedspread.

BUENA PARK - As it will nearly all season, the Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team towered over its opponent Friday night. But while the presence of 7-foot senior Kevin Rakestraw continues to elevate the Sailors' game, their 70-50 triumph over host Buena Park in the semifinals of the Coyote Classic, showed they also have a level of competence well below the rim.

BUENA PARK - Estancia High junior kicker Dan Cabrera had never made a field goal in a varsity football game. Late in Friday night's contest the Eagles needed Cabrera, who kicked on junior varsity last year. He said he was confident he could come through. In Cabrera's head, the 36-yard field goal has never in question. Cabrera transferred his thoughts to the field. He easily nailed the field goal with 55 seconds left in the fourth quarter, lifting Estancia to a 17-14 victory at Buena Park.

BUENA PARK - Driving the ball down the field was not a problem Friday night for the Costa Mesa High football team. The Mustangs repeatedly did it in the first half in their season opener. If it wasn't senior running back Mario Smith moving the chains, it was senior quarterback Nathan Alvis finding his favorite targets, Jordan Walden and Trace Curet. The drives stalled, though, and host Buena Park pulled away for a 34-13 nonleague victory. Costa Mesa still has not won a season opener since 2001.
