COSTA MESA — The Orange Coast College women's basketball team has had its fill of College of Canyons. A 79-65 loss to the Cougars in the semifinal of the Coast Christmas Classic on Tuesday was the second time this year the Cougars have defeated the Pirates. Freshman Courtney Ford scored a game-high 28 points on 11-for-20 shooting for the Pirates. The Pirates will play Southwestern in the third-place game at 4 p.m. today at Orange Coast. The fact Orange Coast went from losing by six to the Cougars Nov. 11 at the Mount San Antonio College Tournament to the 14-point margin Tuesday was not the type of change Pirates Coach Mike Thornton said he had in mind.

COSTA MESA — Statistically speaking, it was College of the Canyons that was supposed to bring the clubs to the Orange Coast baseball diamond for a best-of-three Southern California Regional playoff series that began Friday. But, when the clouts had cleared after the Pirates' 11-7 series-clinching victory in Game 2 Saturday, it was Orange Coast that supplied more prodigious power. OCC (26-19), which had only 19 home runs in 43 regular-season games, hit four in the two-game sweep of the Cougars, including three Saturday.

COSTA MESA — The baseball term is fighting it off. It typically refers to a hitter managing to make contact, usually poor contact, with a pitch that is inside or a pitch on which the hitter is fooled. For Orange Coast College, the term also became a metaphor for its 6-5 come-from-behind victory over visiting College of the Canyons in the opener of a best-of-three Southern California Regional playoff series Friday. The Pirates (25-19) fought off a strong pitching performance by Canyons sophomore lefty starter Mike Robbins.

COSTA MESA - Sometimes, the one thing you haven't tried, the one thing that is least likely to work, can be the magic bullet. The Orange Coast College women's basketball team came up one shot shy of completing a second-half comeback that was as unlikely as it was astounding Saturday night. But in the end, Coach Mike Thornton and his Pirates were left wondering if a 66-65 loss to College of the Canyons in the semifinals of the Erin Tomlinson Coast Christmas Classic at OCC may at least serve as a reset button on a mediocre season to this point.

Perfection is not a matter of Andrew Morales' concern, though his record continues to assert otherwise. Coming off his only shaky outing of the season, and arguably his career, the UC Irvine senior right-hander provided a concise and commanding reminder of just how good he has been for the Anteaters on Friday night. His complete-game two-hitter helped the hosts defeat Grand Canyon, 2-0, in the first of a three-game nonconference series at Anteater Ballpark. Morales, who is 4-0 this season and 14-0 in his career at UCI after transferring from Rio Hondo Community College, where he was merely 21-1, struck out 10, induced nine groundouts and threw just 96 pitches to send the 467 in attendance home after just one hour, 49 minutes.

The Irvine Ranch Conservancy led a volunteer event to help with the planting of native species in Big Canyon on Saturday. The work comes as part of an ongoing habitat and trail enhancement project being conducted in the area on behalf of Newport Beach, said Riley Pratt, the project manager for the conservancy. The contract was awarded by the city in the late summer, Pratt said. During past events, volunteers helped remove invasive species like ice plant. The project will also include trail improvements and increased signage.

ORANGE - Internet directions to the Santiago Canyon Community College campus end with a left turn on Trails End. Recent history would suggest that Orange Coast College women's soccer coach Kevin Smith considers the command more foreshadowing than coincidence. For the third straight season, OCC was eliminated from the Southern California Regional playoffs by the host Hawks, who have a history of mastery over the Pirates that spans well beyond the scope of Smith's memory. This time, No. 2-seeded Santiago Canyon (20-1-2)

A residence formerly owned by John Wayne in the Big Canyon area of Newport Beach is for sale for nearly $4 million. It underwent a major redesign recently, but several elements original to the time Wayne owned the property remained throughout the roughly 4,500-square-foot home, such as the dentil moldings in the high-ceilinged living room, the shelving in the former library and the door handles, plated in nickel silver, in the dining room....

Half a dozen visually impaired teenagers and a group of guides listened in silence in the middle of a tight trail at Crystal Cove State Park. Some cupped their ears or turned their heads to hear the different bird calls they were trying to count. "I got 10," said Nick Avalos, 16. He and his classmates from the Braille Institute in Los Angeles were at Moro Canyon in Laguna Beach on Thursday. There they participated in a pilot project of sorts with Crystal Cove Alliance, a nonprofit partner of the state park.

SANTA ANA - What did the five golfers representing Mesa Verde Country Club on Wednesday at the 14th annual Jones Cup have in common with ornithologists? Both thoroughly lament the birdies that got away. Mesa Verde missed five birdie putts at or inside 10 feet and it turned no fewer than 20 missed birdie putts into tap-in pars to finish nine-under-par 63 in the two-best-ball format at Santa Ana Country Club. Big Canyon Country Club won the event at 11 under to capture its third straight crown and nine out of 14 overall.

SANTA ANA - Shady Canyon Golf Club's second act at the Jones Cup ended far worse than its debut. The five-member team had an excuse for finishing dead last, if it wanted to use one on Wednesday. The players haven't played as much because their home course has been closed the last 4 1/2 months as the Irvine club resurfaced the course's greens. Brian Gunson, the director of golf, didn't offer any excuses for Shady Canyon's fifth-place showing in the five-team tournament between local country clubs at Santa Ana Country Club.

SANTA ANA - Last year it was Mike Carpenter's 25-foot eagle putt that proved to be a memorable, heroic shot for Big Canyon Country Club's Jones Cup victory. This year, it was head pro Robert Pang who stepped up with the seemingly improbable theatrics at the 14th annual Jones Cup Wednesday at Santa Ana Country Club. Pang rebounded from a drive on 18 that pulled and hit a tree. No one thought Pang could pull off a birdie when his ball landed to the left, behind the green on 17. But Pang stunned them all and provided a birdie that eventually proved to be the difference, giving Big Canyon its third straight Jones Cup win and ninth overall.

Kirk Manley says he hasn't seen his golf clubs as much as he would like. That might be hard to believe coming from a head professional like Manley, who works at Shady Canyon Golf Club in Irvine. Nevertheless, Manley is telling the truth. He said with Shady Canyon's closure the last 4 1/2 months, as the club resurfaced the course's greens, it has been hard to find time to play. The club, Manley said, reopens on July 3. A week before then, Manley and four members from Shady Canyon will play a round of golf on a different course.
