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.

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.

In agony, Tyler Thomas asked his dad for one thing before he took him to the hospital eight weeks ago. "I wanted In-N-Out [Burger]," says Thomas, who soon found out he would be out of the lineup for the Estancia High football team. Thomas learned the pain from that night on Sept. 20 was due to injuries he suffered on the field while playing at Irvine High. Irvine is where Christopher Thomas, Tyler's father, played football. He watched his alma mater take down Estancia, 40-6, and his son. The young Thomas says he dislocated his left shoulder and fractured his collarbone.

SANTA ANA - Coach Mike Bargas went into Saturday's football game with two motives. The first was for Estancia High to beat Saddleback and the second was for everyone to play. The Eagles easily met both objectives, coming away with a 26-8 road win to keep their CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoff hopes alive. Estancia is in a two-way tie for third place in the Orange Coast League with Laguna Beach. With one league game left, Estancia can jump to second place and move closer to securing one of the league's two guaranteed postseason berths.

The Estancia High football team is down to its third tailback. His name is Indiana Taylor. His hairdo makes him look taller than he really is. Taylor likes to say he is 5-foot-8. His coach, Mike Bargas, isn't quite sure. "With the Afro, maybe," says Bargas, adding that Taylor, unlike the rest of his teammates, can wear is hair long, just as long as he scores five touchdowns. Taylor lived up to his end of the deal last week, finding the end zone five times in a must-win situation for the Eagles.
