The news of Orgeron's absence didn't seem to faze any of the players and coaches in the room. They were already feeling great about being there. Many other teams in the Southern Section would want to be in the same place on Monday.

WESTMINSTER - The first halftime song to play Friday night at Westminster High was "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey. The host Lions may not have stopped believing, but like 22 teams before them, their resistance was futile against the Corona del Mar High football team. The belief got a little more far-fetched after CdM junior running back Cole Martin ripped off a 63-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter, as well as every time the Sea Kings stopped scrambling Westminster quarterback Daniel Thomsen for a minimal gain.
