One boys' soccer team that has never beat Estancia High in the past five seasons at Jim Scott Stadium is Godinez. Time began to run out on the Grizzlies' chances in an Orange Coast League showdown on Wednesday. They appeared to earn one last chance to knock off host Estancia. The Grizzlies hurried to get a corner kick off before the match ended. They never struck the ball again. The referee blew his whistle and the only two unbeaten teams in league remained unbeaten. The Eagles and Grizzlies finished in a 2-2 tie on a cold night.

LAGUNA BEACH - In stoppage time, Coach Robert Castellano wanted to know how much time remained in the Estancia High boys' soccer match. He asked the referee, who in turn raised one finger, signaling one minute. Sixty seconds proved to be more than enough time for the Eagles to break a scoreless tie on Friday night. In such a short period, they put together two scoring chances. The second shot on goal, the one furthest out, found the back of the net at Laguna Beach. Abarham Cortez blasted a shot from outside the box, putting it where the goalkeeper stood no chance of stopping the ball.

Agustin Heredia is back on the bench as the coach of the Estancia High boys' basketball team. He took last season off for personal reasons. Before the Eagles opened Orange Coast League play, Heredia joked that he should've stayed away another year. You wouldn't blame him. His team went into Wednesday's matchup at rival Costa Mesa with six straight losses. To top things off, Costa Mesa has its best team Heredia said he has seen or coached against. Right away, he saw his Eagles fall behind, by as many as 14 points.

Brandi White seems to keep spraining her ankle on the soccer field. She has tweaked it three times this season. The last time was two days before Estancia High returned from the holiday break. She went down during an alumni match on Jan. 4. Coach Jessica Perry tried to keep her talented sophomore off her feet during the last 10 days. Perry let White return to action on Tuesday. White ended up helping the Eagles get off on the right foot in Orange Coast League play. She used the foot that's right to produce two goals, lifting the Eagles to a 2-0 victory against rival Costa Mesa at Jim Scott Stadium.

Crazy things tend to happen when Estancia High visits Costa Mesa in girls' basketball. The Eagles barely earned one-point wins each of the past two seasons in the Mustangs' gym. And on Tuesday night in the Orange Coast League opener for both teams, Estancia nearly came back from a 12-point deficit with three minutes left. This time, the Mustangs finally had an answer. Her name was Aubriona Mathis. The junior scored a season-high 18 points and also stepped up defensively, helping Costa Mesa earn a 67-64 victory in the first Battle for the Bell game.

Estancia High sophomore Maya Van Den Heever is used to the long airplane ride between California and the Solomon Islands. Usually Maya and her twin sister Nefertiti make it at winter break in December. They go back to the Solomon Islands to see their mother, Doreen. Maya, Nefertiti and their father John left the country when the twins were just 6 years old, and it was understandable why. At the time, the Solomon Islands were in the midst of a Civil War. Doreen stayed behind to care for family.

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.
