Estancia High sophomore forward Kevin Pizarro converted an assist from senior Abraham Cortez in the 30th minute for the only goal in the Eagles' 1-0 nonleague win at Newport Harbor on Friday night. The Eagles (3-1) had just four shots in the defensive-oriented game, in which Estancia junior goallkeeper Enrique Valle had three saves. It was the first goal scored against the Sailors this season. Newport Harbor (0-1-2) had played Corona del Mar and Servite to scoreless ties previously.

To fully understand the tears of vindication that flowed from Celia Duran following Estancia High's overtime victory over Tesoro in the title game of the Corona del Mar Tip-Off Tournament on Saturday night, one had to know about the tears that sprung from futility on the court six years previous. For it is only after one considers how far the Estancia High senior has come in the sport that ultimate appreciation can be conveyed. "When I was in the sixth grade, I liked soccer," said Duran, the 2012-13 Newport-Mesa Player of the Year, who has been the Eagles' unquestioned leader since her sophomore season.

There is a certain underdog mentality that the Estancia High girls' basketball team carries with it. The Eagles weren't supposed to win the Corona del Mar Tip-Off Tournament. They weren't even supposed to be in the championship game. "If you see us walking down the street, you're not like, 'Oh, those must be basketball players,'" senior guard Celia Duran said. "[We're] a bunch of goofballs. " But after Saturday night, they are a bunch of goofballs who are also champions. Estancia rallied from a 14-point third-quarter deficit to stun Tesoro in overtime, 69-67, and win the Tip-Off Tournament championship game at Northwood High.

The game plan Wednesday night for the Estancia High girls' basketball team against taller Corona del Mar was to play a more up-tempo game. But the individual game plan for Estancia senior forward Michelle Simmons was to take her sweet time. "We've worked hard on her shooting," Estancia Co-Coach Judd Fryslie said. "She's a good shooter in practice, and if she slows down and takes her time in a game, she's a good shooter there too. " Simmons sure looked composed on a huge three-pointer late in the game, one that gave Estancia the lead back.

UCI Pregame Vs. Eastern Washington Sunday at 4 p.m. at Bren Events Center The Anteaters get the chance to rebound from Saturday's 74-68 loss to Boston University in fewer than 24 hours by taking on the only unbeaten team in the four-team, three-day 2K Sports Classic. Eastern Washington (4-1) has defeated BU and LIU Brooklyn, the latter a 102-70 drubbing on Saturday in which six Eagles scored in double figures and seven players shot at least 50% from the field. Coach Jim Hayford's Eagles topped BU, 80-68, on Friday and own a victory over Pacific, which knocked off UCI earlier this season.

GARDEN GROVE - Listed at 5 feet 7, 180 pounds - both likely embellished - Estancia High senior Diego Herrera would hardly appear to be the one player the Eagles could not afford to lose. But when Herrera went down with a right ankle sprain midway through Estancia's first offensive possession Friday in a CIF Southern Section Southern Division first-round playoff game against Los Amigos at Bolsa Grande High, it may just as well have been a blow to the visitors' Achilles' heel, as the Eagles trailed from the outset and couldn't recover, falling, 33-12.
