When the Sage Hill School football team won at Linfield Christian of Temecula, 36-35, on Oct. 19, it was really nothing more than a nonleague win. Exciting, sure, but the Lightning’s last-minute touchdown drive only served to give Sage Hill a momentum boost going into Academy League play. Much more will be on the line tonight at 7:30, when the teams meet again in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division playoffs at Sage Hill. “At the seeding meeting, several coaches I talked to from our league said they were surprised we were paired with a team we’d played so recently,” Sage Hill Coach Pete Anderson said.

Barry Faulkner There could not have been a greater contrast Thursday between the split second that decided the game and the remaining 50-plus minutes of girls soccer action between fifth- and sixth-grade gold division, pool B rivals Mariners Christian School and Eastbluff Elementary. The lone goal in a Daily Pilot Cup clash at the Costa Mesa Sports Farm Complex came with the action stopped, as Katie Deverian directed a slow rolling penalty kick inside the left post three minutes into the 25-minute second half.

Bravo, Byron de Arakal. As he is one of the few who seems to have a clear take on our fair city's central problem(s), de Arakal's column ("Merrily on our way to nowhere at all," April 3) captures the essence of what most "improvers" have been vilified for even suggesting. Our Costa Mesa City Council is truly leaderless, stumbling, bumbling along, while issuing irrelevant proclamations and publicly patting each other on the back during City Council meetings for "a job well done," while the citizenry wearily waits into the wee hours of the morning to address relevant problems in hopes of finding real solutions.

Carly Christian got to experience winning a CIF Southern Section Division 1 title a year early. Like many prep water polo players, Christian thought that her senior year would be her best shot at the title. But she helped the upstart Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team win CIF last February as a junior, coming from behind for a thrilling 8-7 victory over rival Corona del Mar. The trip through the season was thrilling for Newport Harbor, which had lost three of four previous meetings to CdM and had started the year ranked just No. 5 in Division 1. "Last year we weren't expecting to win," Christian said.

IRVINE - Carly Christian is used to being called the underdog. She heard it often during her last two years at Newport Harbor High. That didn't stop her from helping lead the Sailors to the 2012 CIF Southern Section Division 1 title, and a repeat finals appearance last February. Christian, bound for UC Santa Barbara, played for Santa Barbara Water Polo Club 18-and-under team at this year's USA Water Polo Junior Olympics. Santa Barbara was the defending division champion, yet many considered SOCAL Black the tournament favorite.

If someone were to tell See's Candies Chief Executive Brad Kinstler that the path to riches was through Christian holidays, there would be no debate. That's because his South San Francisco-based company makes the bulk of its annual revenue on Christmas and Easter, Kinstler said at the ninth annual Concordia University Faith and Business Forum on Thursday at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa hotel. "In part, I can be troubled by the amount of profit made by Christian holidays," Kinstler said.
