The Orange Coast College football team plays its second-to-last regular season game tonight when it plays host to Cerritos at 7 p.m. The Pirates (4-4, 1-2 in the Mission Conference American Division) will attempt to spoil Cerritos' visions of a division championship. The Eagles (5-3, 2-1) control their own destiny after overcoming a 21-3 halftime deficit to defeat Mount SAC last week, 28-21. Orange Coast, which is coming off a 21-3 loss to Palomar, is one game behind Cerritos, Palomar and Mount SAC. If Cerritos wins its final two games, it will be the American Division champion.

Pirates plan to honor 20-year assistant Briggs after 1 p.m. football game. Orange Coast College will honor assistant coach Paul Briggs for his 20 seasons with the football program after today's 1 p.m. game against visiting Cerritos.

Orange Coast (5-3, 2-1 in the division), ranked No. 8 in Southern California, is coming off back-to-back division road wins at Saddleback and Santa Ana. With victories in their final two regular-season games, the Pirates are hoping to receive a bid to a postseason bowl for the first time since 2000.

CERRITOS — With everything at stake, Sage Hill School boys' tennis coach A.G. Longoria tinkered with his lineup Tuesday. The Lightning had won 14 straight matches, but Longoria knew Cerritos would be a tough opponent in the CIF Southern Section Division III semifinal match. He put No. 1 singles player Robbe Simon at No. 3 singles for the match. He also moved No. 2 singles player Andrew Kurzweil into doubles with Ryan Lee. Both moves worked for Sage Hill, which is now on the doorstep of history.

SANTA ANA — The good news is, the Orange Coast College baseball team needs a pitching plan for Sunday. The less-encouraging news: the Pirates may have to spin said plan out of whole cloth. Whoever takes the mound Sunday for what would need to be a pair of wins over host Santa Ana on the final day of the four-team, double-elimination Super Regional, will merely need to emulate the heroics displayed Saturday afternoon by freshman reliever Josh Evans. Evans, who had compiled 32 2/3 innings in 22 appearances — all in relief — entering Saturday, most coming in the late innings as the team's closer, pitched a lifetime-high 62/3 innings to key an 11-8 come-from-behind win over Cerritos in an elimination game.

COSTA MESA — Karlèh Wilson did her best to stay calm throughout Saturday morning at Jim Scott Stadium. As the Corona del Mar High junior prepared to compete in the shot put at the CIF Southern Section Division III track and field preliminaries, she listened to reggae to soothe her spirits. As the meet approached she stayed calm. She competed in the girls' 4x100 relay then went to warm up for the shot put. The reggae beats continued to flow, but when she went up for her first throw, there was nothing calm or peaceful about it. Wilson's personal record of 41 feet, 3 inches earned her the top qualifying spot to the CIF Southern Section finals Saturday at Cerritos College.

COSTA MESA — Clearly, 24 works better as a prime-time television drama than it does as a shooting percentage. But 24.1% was all the Orange Coast College women’s basketball team could muster from the field Saturday night in the semifinals of its Coast Christmas Classic against visiting Cerritos. The result was a 52-45 Falcons victory that was hardly as routine as one might expect. For, despite OCC’s inability to produce a field goal during a stretch of 18 minutes, five seconds, that spanned well into the second half — the hosts missed their first 12 field-goal attempts after halftime and were two for 19 before a relative bucket frenzy (three)
