COSTA MESA — The emotional fire of the rivalry game was temporarily extinguished due to poor air quality as a result of fires in the region, but the Orange Coast football team looked to reignite the flame and torch Golden West Friday night. Motivated by a video posted on the YouTube website of Golden West’s victory in last year’s Battle for the Bell, the Pirates came into the 40th edition blazing. The Pirates beat the Rustlers, 30-28, in a Mission Confernce American Division game that really wasn’t much of a contest until the end. The Pirates (5-5, 3-2 in the division)

COSTA MESA — Even competing against one’s biggest rival, sometimes the most dangerous adversary isn’t on the other side of the net. Orange Coast College women’s volleyball coach Chuck Cutenese suggested this was the case for the Pirates, who came into Wednesday’s Orange Empire Conference match with rival Golden West with an unbeaten record and ranked No. 3 in the state. But having played no one in the top 25 its first seven matches, OCC was clearly not used to the pressurized atmosphere created by the importance of the match, as well as a raucous crowd consisting of dozens of Rustlers rooters.

COSTA MESA ? Right now Kiwi Winkler has more pressing concerns. The Orange Coast College sophomore does not have time to think about the post-season awards she received and did not receive. The women's volleyball playoffs are the only thing on the outside hitter's mind. For the 15th time in 22 matches Winkler led No. 2-seeded Orange Coast in kills, as the Pirates put away a 30-16, 30-25, 25-30, 30-16 victory over Bakersfield College in the first round of the Southern California Regional Playoffs Tuesday.

HUNTINGTON BEACH ? Chuck Cutenese didn't mind saying his team needed to lose for the first time in 37 matches. Round two of the 2004 regional playoffs was the last time the Orange Coast College women's volleyball team had lost until Wednesday night. OCC's rival Golden West, ranked No. 15, did the deed with a 30-21, 30-26, 31-29, 30-28 Orange Empire Conference victory over the top-ranked Pirates. The Rustlers had their streak of 12 consecutive state titles erased when the Pirates took the state title with an undefeated season in 2005.

Though it is not always level-headed, the historic football rivalry between Orange Coast College and Golden West has at least been virtually even-handed. Should the Pirates (2-0), ranked No. 19 in the state and No. 11 in Southern California, win the 42nd meeting tonight at 6 at OCC, they would even the series record at 20-20-2. Golden West (0-2) has won just once in the last five contests of the rivalry now deemed the West-Coast Showdown. In addition to being a battle for bragging rights between the neighboring schools, who frequently battle for recruits, this matchup could also be viewed as a debate between offensive philosophies.

COSTA MESA — Travis Turner went into Best Buy in search of electronics and came out with an All-CIF outside hitter. In September, Turner bumped into Kevin Welch, who he coached on the Balboa Bay Volleyball Club team. Welch, who helped Corona del Mar High to a CIF Southern Section Division II title in 2005, was in town to begin his return to volleyball after leaving Indiana University where he was a walk-on football player. Turner mentioned he was taking over the Orange Coast College men's volleyball team for 14-year Pirates Coach Chuck Cutenese and he would be happy to have the 6-foot-2 outside hitter.

IRVINE — The Orange Coast College men’s volleyball team dug deep to reach its third straight state final four, but it was the digging ability of rival Golden West that ended the Pirates’ season Thursday night. Golden West overcame what freshman outside hitter and former Costa Mesa High standout Ryan Bagwell said were some opening-game jitters, to claim a 25-30, 30-28, 30-19, 30-27 semifinal triumph at Irvine Valley College. It was the third win for the Rustlers (14-6)

COSTA MESA ? Orange Coast College coach Mike Taylor knew it wouldn't be easy holding onto the Bell for a third straight year. "When these two teams get together you can throw records out the window," Taylor said after Golden West pulled off a 20-13 upset over its rival Saturday. Records were thrown out indeed, as 2-8 Golden West shocked the 7-3 Pirates in a Mission Conference National Division finale. With 3:20 remaining, Golden West quarterback Les Obie found Dan Delahoussaye for an 80-yard strike that gave the Rustlers (1-4 in division)

COSTA MESA - The road to the Orange Empire Conference men's soccer championship clearly goes through 17-time defending conference champion Santa Ana College. But, as Orange Coast College discovered Friday, Golden West may be hitting the Santa Ana recruiting trail in order to forge a pathway to making a run at the dynastic Dons. Golden West, with eight players on its roster who list Santa Ana as their home town, defeated host Orange Coast, 3-1, in a conference clash Friday to keep pace with Santa Ana atop the conference standings.

COSTA MESA — Immediately after the last play ended, most of the Golden West College football players sprinted toward the north end zone, where the perpetual victory bell trophy awaited the winner of the annual showdown with rival Orange Coast College. And, for once, the OCC secondary did not have to give pursuit. Chasing was required of the Pirates' defensive backs during virtually all the big plays produced by the Rustlers, who registered all but one of their points in a 33-17 triumph via the pass.
