Sage Hill School doubles partners Drew Roeser and Kent Kuran combined for a pair of victories, but host Fairmont Prep dominated elsewhere to produce a 15-3 Academy League boys tennis victory Friday at Sunny Hills Tennis Club in Fullerton. Roeser and Kuran won two sets by identical 6-2 scores. Doubles partners Eric Burton and Tristan Cordier posted the other set victory for the Lightning (3-6, 2-2 in league).

For a program that’s not in the Academy League, Fairmont Prep is an extremely familiar opponent to Sage Hill School. The Lightning have played the school from Anaheim for the last five years, and over that time both teams have built up their respective programs. Tonight, they’ll see who can get the early edge in the 2007 season when Sage Hill plays host to Fairmont Prep at 7 p.m. “They’re a young program, very similar to us,” Lightning first-year Coach Pete Anderson said.

Richard Dunn CERRITOS -- Halfway through its first varsity football season, Sage Hill School has a winning record and now its first shutout. It also had senior Erik Williams completely healthy for the first time Saturday night as the visiting Lightning dismantled Fairmont Prep of Anaheim, 27-0, in a nonleague game at Valley Christian High. On the heels of back-to-back setbacks, the victory pushed Sage Hill (3-2) over the .500 mark as it prepares to open Academy League play Friday against powerful Capistrano Valley Christian.

Sage Hill School has some tweaking to do ? perhaps a reaction to its 31-13 loss to Western Christian on Sept. 22. That's when the Lightning lost the battle in the trenches. Coach Tom Monarch said Sage Hill (2-1) has adjusted defensively for tonight's nonleague game against Fairmont Prep (3-0), at 7 at Valley Christian High in Cerritos. One of the key moves features junior Joey Puishys shifting from defensive end to linebacker. "He's doing well there," Monarch said.

Everything that Coach Jim Weeks imagined could've gone wrong for Costa Mesa High did in the first half Saturday. The Mustangs were on their way to missing their first 14 three-pointers and the defensive lapses frustrated Weeks during the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA playoffs against La Quinta. But Costa Mesa survived to beat La Quinta, 65-56. And Weeks is happy about that as the No. 3-seeded Mustangs play at No. 11 Fairmont Prep of Anaheim in the quarterfinals tonight at 7:30.

NEWPORT COAST — Third-and-43. Not a position a high school football team wants to be in during its first game of the season, at home no less. In the third quarter Friday night, Sage Hill School was backed up farther than the fans who waited in line for food from the In-N-Out hamburger truck at the pregame tailgate party. Enter Nick Witte. The Lightning senior receiver caught a Jamie McGee pass in the open field, turned on the afterburners to outrun two defenders and made up 41 of the yards on one play.

NEWPORT COAST — By the time it was nearly over, Sage Hill School football coach J.R. Tolver had two play sheets rolled up like batons, one in each of his back pockets. And as the host Lightning held on in the closing seconds to secure a 28-26 season-opening upset of Fairmont Prep Friday night, it was clear that the baton had been passed from a struggling program to one, now under Tolver and his staff of former college and professional players, with substantial promise. The Lightning, coming off a 2-8 season after which Tolver took over for then-coach Derek McIntyre, looked like an altogether more menacing weather pattern against the favored Huskies, ranked No. 7 in CIF Southern Section Northeast Division on the heels of an 8-3 campaign.

CERRITOS ? The Sage Hill School football team wished it just had one more quarter on Saturday night. The Lightning dominated the second half against Fairmont Prep, but it just wasn't quite enough. Sage Hill couldn't erase a three-touchdown halftime deficit and lost, 27-20, at Valley Christian High. "That team was undefeated and we came out flat and spotted them 21 points," Sage Hill Coach Tom Monarch said. "But if you told me we'd play that kind of second half in a nonleague game, we'll take it. A lot of football teams fold when they're down 21-0."

YORBA LINDA - A miraculous final play nearly saved the Sage Hill School football team Saturday night against Fairmont Prep. But, for the Lightning, a slow start again proved too much to overcome. Sage Hill lost the nonleague game, 32-27, at Yorba Linda High. It was another frustrating result for the Lightning, who are now 0-2 for just the second time in program history. The Lightning lost more than the game. Sophomore quarterback CJ McCord injured his right arm in the second quarter and was taken to the hospital.

NEWPORT COAST - Just before halftime, there was a contest for who could come up with the best nickname for Sage Hill School's offense during its season opener Friday night. The second-place nickname: Cheng Reaction, a play on the last name of senior Eric Cheng. He wasn't the entire offense, but after watching him against Fairmont Prep, you would understand the clever moniker. Cheng ran for 172 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries to help the Lightning score a 48-6 win at Sage Hill's Ramer Field.

CERRITOS — Lightning can strike quickly out of the Wildcat formation. Sage Hill School senior Taylor Ross proved it at Valley Christian High on Friday night. Ross, normally a running back, had fun lining up in the quarterback position in the second half. Fairmont Prep had less fun trying to stop him. Ross rushed for 250 yards and scored all three touchdowns to help lead the Lightning to a 20-13 nonleague victory in the season opener for both schools. Coach J.R. Tolver said before the season a primary goal was to get Ross the ball.

The J.R. Tolver Era opened with an impressive 28-26 upset of Fairmont Prep last week. And, now the Sage Hill School football team can accomplish another feat today. If the Lightning beat Animo Leadership, in a nonleague game that starts today at noon at Locke High in Los Angeles, they will have matched last year’s win total. Last year, Sage Hill beat Animo, 24-8, but that means little to first-year-coach Tolver and his players. The Aztec Eagles opened this season with a 25-0 win over California School for the Deaf of Riverside.

Dusty Orrantia stepped on the football field a changed player. He can say the same for the rest of his Sage Hill School teammates surviving last year’s 2-8 season. As the Lightning kicked off the season at home last week, two things stood out. The final score is obvious: Sage Hill 28, Fairmont Prep 26. Without the start, there is no upset of the No. 9-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division preseason coaches’ poll. “I felt we were actually prepared this year,” Orrantia said of playing Fairmont Prep in the opener for the second straight year.

 Sage Hill School had already made headlines by assembling a coaching staff stocked with former NFL and college players. But the marquee value on the Lightning sideline attained even more wattage Friday night in the team’s 28-26 nonleague home season-opening win over Fairmont Prep, which came in ranked No. 7 in the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division. Former Pro-Bowl receiver Keyshawn Johnson, who reportedly owns a house in Emerald Bay and who took former pro receiver and Sage Hill Coach J.R. Tolver under his wing when the two were with the Dallas Cowboys, was on hand to jabber and cajole coaches, players and onlookers.
