Corona del Mar High's perfect run began one week after a scrimmage got out of control four months ago. The Sea Kings wound up on the other end of illegal shots, as well as shoves long after the whistle blew. Then their coach, Scott Meyer, blew up. "I kind of lost my cool a little bit there," Meyer said with a grin, remembering how the opposing coaches celebrated with their players on the field after every defensive play. "I don't know why.

"You obviously don't want to go out like that," said Brinkley, whose team opens at Dana Hills (5-5)
