Barry Faulkner LAGUNA BEACH - In six games since joining the Pacific Coast League last fall, the Corona del Mar High football team has beaten all five schools which also call the circuit home. Now, CdM Coach Dick Freeman hopes, it's time for seconds. First in line for the Sea Kings (4-3, 2-0 in league), will be Laguna Beach, which hosts the PCL contest Friday at 7 p.m. Winners of four straight, the Sea Kings will try to take another step toward defense of their 1999 PCL co-title against the Artists (1-6, 0-2)

Barry Faulkner NEWPORT BEACH - If their first seven games are any indication, spectators might not want to get caught in the halftime line at the snack bar when Corona del Mar High hosts Laguna Beach Friday in a 7 p.m. Pacific Coast League football game at Newport Harbor High. The Sea Kings (4-2-1, 1-1 in league) and Artists (5-2, 0-2) have made the third quarter their own this season, fueling speculation that whoever makes the biggest statement after intermission will have the inside track to victory this week.

Steve Virgen The New York Giants' Ron Dixon had just ran 97 yards for a touchdown in Super Bowl XXXV and devastated, mostly, Baltimore Ravens Special Teams Coach Russ Purnell. Dixon's kickoff return brought new life to the Giants as they scored their first touchdown and cut their deficit, 17-7. Purnell, who played as a center for Orange Coast College in 1966 and 1967, was disappointed, but hardly worrisome. He was confident in his kickoff return team.

Barry Faulkner Dave Holland coached the Corona del Mar High football team to 106 victories and two CIF Southern Section championships in 20 seasons at the helm. But it has been nearly nine years since he stepped down at CdM and his three previous experiences coaching a team on the opposing sideline have brought losses by a combined 60 points. Things figure to be a little more interesting when Holland's Laguna Beach Breakers host his former school Friday at 7 p.m. in a Pacific Coast League game with plenty at stake.

ROGER CARLSON Dave Holland has always been one to stick to a schedule. He weighs his options, then strikes. His decision to go for it even before his Corona del Mar High football team had completed its second touchdown march to narrow the deficit to 14-13 against highly favored Newport Harbor in a Sea View League finale in 1985 is a good case in point. "There was no doubt," recalled Holland, "we're going to score here and go for two. Some people thought I was taking our kids out of a tie, but it was one of those things, we were in a zone and, OK, we're doing it."

His high school football team was on the verge of the most significant victory in Newport-Mesa Unified School District history that December night at Orange Coast College, but the best was yet to come. Corona del Mar High's Sea Kings had forged a 10-point lead over the defending CIF Southern Section Division VI champion, Valencia, and time was running out when a junior reserve named Phil Holland made his way onto the field as part of CdM's punt coverage and the coach jogged onto the field for last-second advice.

They were the defending CIF Southern Section Division VI champions, unbeaten, with more than two dozen returnees, and hopes were high as the 1989 high school football season approached. Yet they would put their coach, Dave Holland, on an elevator ride for the ages. Corona del Mar's Sea Kings, 12-0-2 a year earlier, were beaten in their season opener, beaten in their league opener, beaten in the Battle of the Bay showdown with Newport Harbor and finished fourth in the Sea View League with a nondescript 2-3 record.

Roger Carlson Someone once asked what was the most exciting moment for me when I was a sportswriter for the Daily Pilot, covering high school football from 1964 to 1988, before I left the press box for a soap box as the newspaper's sports editor. The answer was, "Twenty-five years." Too many personalities, too many accomplishments and too many nights to remember defy a top 10 list. But there is a defining moment, each year, right about now as Labor Day slips by and the openers await.
