Barry Faulkner SANTA ANA - It will be a while until his next club team practice, but Newport Harbor High junior forward Jose Serpas will certainly have a lot to talk about. Serpas scored both Newport Harbor High goals to lead the visiting Sailors to a 2-0 victory over a Santa Ana Valley squad that included many of his club teammates in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division II boys soccer playoffs Friday. Serpas' two goals, both in the second half, equaled his regular-season total.

Joseph Boo ANAHEIM - Surprising Costa Mesa high's boys basketball team was in for a real test as it took its 10-3 record into Tuesday's second round game of the Canyon Classic against mighty Crescenta Valley. The Mustangs withstood a Crescenta Valley barrage for the first three quarters, but a 24-9 fourth quarter ultimately did them in, 73-54. They will now face Buena Park today, at 12 p.m. "We were right there," Costa Mesa coach Bob Serven said. "We just missed our shots."

Alan Eberhart will be happy to see Thomas Kyle in a cap and gown in June when the Burroughs High football player graduates. For three years, Eberhart has seen Kyle do his share of damage against his Crescenta Valley High squad. Kyle was awesome again on Friday, rushing for a career-high 239 yards and two touchdowns in 15 carries in the Indians' 25-0 victory against Crescenta Valley at Memorial Field. "I'm going to his graduation," Eberhart joked about Kyle, who has gained 483 rushing yards in three varsity meetings against the Falcons.

Barry Faulkner Tonight's 7 o'clock Mission Conference American Division football matchup between visiting Orange Coast College and Cerritos appears, at least on paper, to be evenly matched. But the Pirates (1-7, 1-2 in the division), having lost 11 of their last 12 games and having produced just 14 offensive touchdowns and a conference-low 108 points this season, have proved no match for their own offensive struggles in 2004. OCC has not scored more than 19 points in a game this fall, as well as the final five games of 2003.

CORONA DEL MAR — It might be hard to believe, but Coach George Larsen at one time almost went to someone other than Jack Gorab to take free kicks. That was last week at Corona del Mar High, where the rain played a role in Gorab's errant balls on set pieces in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. The weather was much better Wednesday and so were the balls Gorab kicked in the second round. The junior gave the Sea Kings the momentum two minutes before halftime against Santa Ana Valley.

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.

IRVINE - The way the first half was going, nothing was going to stop the CdM Aquatics 18-and-under girls' team Thursday afternoon at the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics. Passes were precise. Shots were on target. The defense was suffocating. The only misstep happened at the start of the third quarter, when the girls botched their team chant. That was all right, though, as CdM cruised to a 13-8 victory over Falcon at Beckman High. The victory, not as close as the final score would indicate, secured the locals' spot in the platinum bracket (top 24)

SAN BERNARDINO — The Estancia High offense finally got something going in the third quarter of its season-opening nonleague football game Friday at Aquinas High. But by then, it was merely a futile attempt to keep up with the Joneses. Aquinas brothers Jimmy and Bobbie Jones combined to score 22 of the Falcons’ 28 consecutive points carrying into the third quarter, and they finished with 23 points and a bushel of impressive statistics to lead the hosts to a 35-13 victory.

NORWALK ? Against the Mission Conference's most generous defense, Orange Coast College quarterback Kekoa Crowell came out confident. With his arm, as well as with his feet, he had little to be insecure about. Crowell (12 for 17) efficiently passed for 155 yards and rushed for 64 more, helping the Pirates to a 17-7 win at Cerritos College on Saturday night. The Pirates' defense, which has now given up just 13 points in its last two games, had a similar state of mind. Freshman Shaun Mohler, a Corona del Mar High product, had two quarterback sacks and also forced a fumble.
