In Sunday's sectional final played at Bob Henry Park in Newport Beach, a win would advance them through to the following week's regional tournament. A loss would mean the end of their season. Standing in their way was the Garden Grove squad that had handily beat Newport just three days earlier, 10-4. But this time, NHBA turned the tables for a 11-5 to advance to the regional tournament.

Before they went their separate ways, Puga scheduled a meeting with Meyer for December. "I expect to see you guys in the finals again," Meyer said Puga told him. That time has come as the Sea Kings square off against the Argonauts in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division finale for the second straight season.

It was 1981, and Nguyen, only 3 at the time, had set sail with his family. After one month at sea, the death of nine children aboard their boat, and eight months in a Hong Kong refugee camp, the Nguyens finally arrived in America.

A man who fired a handgun 54 times at Fashion Island because it reportedly made him "feel better" was sentenced Friday to 12 years in state prison. Marcos Gurrola, 42, of Garden Grove pleaded guilty to 54 counts of shooting at an occupied building and two felony counts of aggravated assault.

As a sophomore, Parker Chase stood out on the field so much that a starting job at defensive end seemed realistic. Seven sophomores wound up starting on defense for the Corona del Mar High football team last year. Chase wasn't one of the lucky seven to get so much playing time as a young player. At the start of last year's fall training camp, Chase broke his left hand. He says his hand struck the metal part of a sled and then a helmet. The next day, the top of his hand looked like a baseball.
