After a 24-14 upset win against Calvary Chapel High, Estancia is excited. How excited is Estancia? The Estancia Eagles began practice for the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs Monday morning at 7. There were no classes at the school because of Veteran's Day, but that just meant more time to prepare for the Eagles. "Everyone is fired up," Bargas said. The Eagles (5-5) are fired up because they played their best game of the season against Calvary Chapel and catapulted to second place in the Orange Coast League with a 3-2 record.

During the Costa Mesa High football team's six-game win streak much of the talk has been about senior running back/linebacker Oronde Crenshaw and senior receiver/defensive back Quinton Bell, and deservedly so. But another senior has also provided a big boost and he showed that Friday night when the Mustangs completed an undefeated run in the Orange Coast League. Quarterback Oliver Ferris had his most productive game of the season as he threw for 237 yards and one touchdown and completed nine of his 11 passes in Costa Mesa's 56-30 win at Laguna Beach.

Sage Hill School Coach J.R. Tolver saw his football team grow during an Academy League battle at Crean Lutheran Friday night. The Lightning responded after an early deficit and had an answer for each score Crean produced. The teams tied twice, 13-13, and 20-20, and the game went back and forth before Sage Hill won, 50-40. It was a big win and the Lightning were rewarded for it, as they earned an at-large berth into the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division playoffs. Sage Hill is one of five Newport-Mesa area teams in the CIF playoffs, which begin Friday.

There were many uplifting events during a momentous 10-0 regular season for the Corona del Mar High football team. But perhaps the Sea Kings' biggest moment/win came Week 4 when CdM upended its rival Newport Harbor. The Sea Kings had lost six straight to the Sailors, but put an end to Newport Harbor's supremacy with a convincing 34-14 win Sept. 20. "That was a huge win for our players," CdM Coach Scott Meyer said. "I think it just really let our guys know that we can play with anybody.

After going winless a year ago, Sage Hill School has qualified for the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division playoffs. Sage Hill's 50-40 victory at Crean Lutheran in an Academy League finale on Friday night helped the Lightning earn a berth into the postseason. The Lightning (5-5, 2-2 in league) received one of the East Valley Division's three at-large playoff entries on Saturday, when the CIF Southern Section released the at-large teams. Sage Hill needed an at-large berth because it finished third in the Academy league, which only receives two guaranteed playoff berths.

Less than a quarter into the game, the Northwood High football team had already scored more points than Corona del Mar's first four opponents in the Pacific Coast League. The Timberwolves' junior quarterback, Brian Abel, was more than able. He engineered two touchdown drives, putting CdM into an early hole Friday night at Davidson Field. The response on defense came quickly. Northwood couldn't score again until the final minutes of the game, when CdM was well in control. The Sea Kings weren't going to miss out on their chance to make history.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - It was simple for Newport Harbor High going into its Sunset League football finale. Win and the Sailors claim a share of the league title. Lose and their shot at first was over. The latter happened on Friday night, as the Sailors lost at Huntington Beach, 40-14. Coach Jeff Brinkley couldn't believe it happened. How could a team that was playing for something as important as a league crown lose by 26 points to a fifth-place team? "Obviously, it didn't motivate them enough," Brinkley said of the Sailors trying to split their second league championship in five years.
