MOJAVE - The Sage Hill School football team traveled 139 miles to face Mojave Friday night. On the field, the Lightning felt miles behind the Mustangs, even from the outset. Mojave took back the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown on its way to a 36-0 nonleague win. The Lightning (1-2) also allowed a punt return for a touchdown in the first half and the Mustangs earned a safety, as they built a 21-0 halftime lead. Sage Hill played much of the game without quarterback Taylor Petty, who strained a hamstring last week, Coach JR Tolver said.

NEWPORT COAST - The Sage Hill School football team will get a fresh start on Friday, when it opens Academy League play against visiting Crean Lutheran. But the Lightning would have liked to have used a restart in Friday's 42-20 nonleague home loss to Firebaugh, which scored the game's first 28 points, the initial 21 by cashing in Sage Hill miscues. It started early for the Lightning (1-5), when a botched game-opening onside kick set the visitors from Lynwood (3-4) up at the Sage Hill 24-yard line.

NEWPORT COAST — It was hard to decide what was the most unbelievable in the crazy turn of events that gave the Sage Hill School football team a come-from-behind, 33-31 victory over Tri-City Christian on Friday night at home. But Sage Hill will take it after winning the wild nonleague game when senior Taylor Ross nailed a 28-yard field goal with just two seconds left in regulation. It capped the Lightning (2-0) recovering two onside kicks and scoring 17 points in the final three minutes of the game.

Newport Coast, Calif. That's not the first city that comes to mind when you think of a possible hometown for a USC running back. A title like that brings to mind legends, such as Reggie Bush, Charles White and Marcus Allen. The list is scattered with greats from all over the country. While the thought of a Newport Coast-bred USC running back seems ridiculous, Taylor Ross has other thoughts. He has the look of a Newport local, with the blond hair and blue eyes, but that look doesn't match his mental fortitude and style of play.

Like many young high school football coaches, J.R. Tolver wants to be in control of everything. He learned last year, his third season at the helm of Sage Hill School, that isn't possible. The team lost seven games, as many as it did in Tolver's first two seasons at the school. One of those games Tolver wasn't even around to coach. He missed it because an official ejected him for arguing with officials after a game. The losses piled up and Sage Hill went on to finish third in the Academy League and miss the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division playoffs for the first time under Tolver.

NEWPORT COAST - Nearly every time Brethren Christian running backs touched the ball Friday at Sage Hill School, something big would happen. Either a 41-yard touchdown run by quarterback Samuel Franklin would occur, with hardly anyone touching him. Or Josh Gladysz, a converted offensive guard turned man-sized, bulldozing fullback, would drag one, two, three Sage Hill defenders with him per four-yard carry. Add it all up - 451 rushing yards on 47 carries, to be exact - and the Lightning lost a critical Academy League game, 48-7.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO - Fans at the football game between St. Margaret's and Sage Hill thought they had endured the worst of the rain Friday night. Mother Nature had other plans. A downpour started minutes before kickoff, just as the host Tartans were about to take the field. It wasn't too bad. The rain stopped midway through the first quarter. The Tartans' reign over the Lightning continues. St. Margaret's sophomore quarterback Josh Davis threw five touchdown passes, four to senior Byron Manzo, as the Tartans rolled over Sage, 38-3, in a meeting of Academy League rivals.

NEWPORT COAST - Dressed in sweats, Taylor Petty was closer to going to bed than playing for Sage Hill School on Saturday night. Sage Hill was without its best athlete. Bad timing when the Lighting played host to The Bishop's, the defending CIF State Division IV champion. Petty, out with a leg issue, saw the Knights run away with a 57-7 victory. The Lighting missed their senior against the program from La Jolla. Without Petty at quarterback, the offense went nowhere.

CARLSBAD - Early on, Saturday afternoon's nonleague football game between Sage Hill School and Tri-City Christian was competitive. Lightning Coach J.R. Tolver still saw something missing. Less than two minutes into the game, he questioned his team after Tri-City Christian's Nathan Medrano scored on a punt return. "Are you ready now?" Tolver asked his players as they came off the field. "Football is a game of emotion. If you don't play with emotion, that happens. " It didn't get better from there.
