NEWPORT BEACH — Four weeks ago, the Newport Harbor High boys’ volleyball team was swept at Esperanza. Simply put, it did not sit well with the Sailors. Tuesday was an opportunity for the Tars to wipe their hands clean of that embarrassment and deliver the Aztecs their first Sunset League loss. This opportunity would not be wasted. After jumping out to a quick two-set lead, the Sailors dropped the third set and found themselves in a 16-11 hole in the fourth set. Coach Dan Glenn called a timeout and urged his players to get into the right position and go get the ball.

The last time Newport Harbor High faced Esperanza, all Coach Jeff Brinkley recalls is the football field being wet. The Sailors definitely got their feet wet in their return to the Sunset League last year. In their first league game, they pulled out a stunning 21-13 victory at home. No showers are in the forecast for Round 2 tonight at 7, as Newport Harbor plays Esperanza at Valencia High. Again the Aztecs enter the game undefeated and ranked in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division.

NEWPORT BEACH — Most teams enjoy a home-field advantage. Still, it's a little bit larger for the Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team, which plays its home games at Davidson Field — snug by soccer standards. "It's really difficult [for the opposition] to get wins out here," Newport Coach Josh Brooks said. "The room isn't there. When you look up, instead of having one player coming at you, you've got two or three." The football field was appropriate Thursday, where the Sailors were trying to pay Esperanza back for a touchdown — seven goals — it had scored during the teams' previous Sunset League meeting.

It's just six years and a couple of months until the '20s - the 2020s, that is - which may inspire a reflection or two from jazz aficionados. Nearly 100 years ago, the musical form so dominated society that it became a euphemism for an entire decade: the Jazz Age, memorialized in "The Great Gatsby," flapper dresses and other symbols of the time before the Great Depression laid America's fortunes low. A quarter century later, jazz played an...

COSTA MESA - The rain never materialized Tuesday afternoon at Jim Scott Stadium, but a brisk wind played a role in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 second-round girls' soccer playoff match. Host Corona del Mar played north to south in the first half, with the wind, but never took the lead. In the second half, visiting Esperanza made sure the Sea Kings' hopes were just gone with the wind. Aztecs senior midfielder Nosa Ogiamien scored in the 62nd minute as CdM was shocked, 1-0, in a season-ending loss.

PLACENTIA — Not bound by the tug of subjectivity, a philosopher might suggest there’s a lesson in the second helping of coin-flip futility forced upon the Newport Harbor High football program Friday night. But without the luxury of objectivity, Sailors Coach Jeff Brinkley found almost no words, and even less reason in the scene that brought a sudden halt to the postgame celebration after a 13-10 Sunset League win over host Esperanza at Valencia High. Not more than 10 minutes after the Aztecs’ would-be game-tying field goal from 37-yards out sailed wide left with three seconds left, giving the Sailors (6-4, 3-2 in league)

Newport Harbor vs. Esperanza When/where: Tonight at 7, at Valencia High Key Sailors: Jr. TB Cedric Whitaker (916 rushing yards, 12 total TDs); Sr. WR-LB Cecil Whiteside (23 receptions), Sr. WR-CB Parker Norton (30 receptions). Breakdown: After Los Alamitos beat Fountain Valley Thursday, the Sailors (5-4, 2-2 in league) will need to defeat Esperanza (4-5, 1-3), to move into a three-way tie for second place with Fountain Valley and Los Al. Since the three teams are all 1-1 against each other, a coin flip would decide the league’s Nos. 2 and 3 playoff representatives in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division playoffs ... A Newport Harbor loss would mean the Sailors would be denied an automatic playoff berth and scenarios indicate getting the division’s lone at-large berth is highly unlikely ... The Tars are coming off a dominant 49-0 win over Marina that snapped a two-game losing streak ... Esperanza, which beat Marina, 52-27, on Oct. 29, comes off a 21-19 loss to arch-rival Los Al last week ... Newport Harbor beat Los Al, 23-20, on Oct. 16 ... Esperanza beat Mira Costa, 21-20, while the Tars lost to the Mustangs, 24-10, in nonleague play.

CORONA DEL MAR — For the big matches at home, Corona del Mar High has a bagpiper play. The bagpiper has performed a handful of times before the start of the boys’ water polo action. It’s not as if CdM needs a boost at home. The bagpiper has been spotted on top of a roof overlooking the pool. He probably could’ve played in the water for CdM Wednesday. The No. 3-seeded Sea Kings continued to win at home, beating Esperanza, 12-7, in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs.
