Chris Moya has arguably the best hair, the best nickname and the best shot on the Estancia High boys' soccer team. Coach Robert Castellano doesn't care much for the hair and nickname. As for the shot, it's special. With the shot comes the other two. Moya tends to run his fingers through his hair after he strikes the ball. Moya then hears teammates on the bench call him "The Beast. " Castellano just shakes his head when he hears anyone refer to a 5-foot-6 and 140-pound sophomore as "The Beast.

COSTA MESA - While observing just how young some players are at the 13th annual Daily Pilot Cup, one would only need to watch Aidan Gassel complete his hat trick. After he dribbled past a drawn-out goalie, the Newport Elementary forward had the goal all to himself. But his black headband was slipping off the top of his head. So in the 29th minute, Gassel adjusted it during his run, while continuing to dribble, and scored easily. One wouldn't really imagine a professional player like L.A. Galaxy forward Landon Donovan doing that.

LOS ANGELES - Don't bring up the last time the Estancia High boys' soccer team won the CIF Southern Section title to Robert Castellano. He begrudgingly will thank you for reminding him. That special season 14 years ago can be a sensitive issue for him at times. He missed being a part of that section championship team because he graduated the year before the school won it all. Castellano never played for a section title, but he is now one win away from coaching the Eagles in one. As the coach, Castellano is in full control, always composed.

COSTA MESA - Cyndi Lauper would have loved the Mariners Elementary fifth- and sixth-grade girls' bronze division soccer team that proved, even in the face of stifling defeat on Friday, that "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. " Lauper's signature anthem of the 1980s could have been the theme song for the Marlins, though it was Eastbluff that also clearly enjoyed its 5-0 triumph in the Daily Pilot Cup soccer tournament at Jack Hammett Sports Complex....

SANTA ANA - Estancia High senior girls' soccer player Marlene Calderon had two chances to score in the waning minutes Thursday afternoon. One was a shot that went just wide right. One was a low shot that the Santa Ana Valley goalie was able to scoop up. "Don't remind me," Calderon said after the game. "I was so mad. I panicked. I was really excited. In my head, I scored, but obviously ... not in real life. " Calderon had nothing at all to be embarrassed about. In real life, she did more than her share on defense.

COSTA MESA - Orange Coast College sophomore Sara Gomez said she woke up one day late last summer and realized she missed playing soccer. Orange Empire Conference goalkeepers have likely had trouble sleeping ever since. Gomez, who said it had been a couple of years since she was healthy enough to torment opposing netminders, scored three goals to lead the Pirates to a 5-0 triumph over visiting Golden West College in an Orange Empire Conference women's game Friday. Gomez, who grew up in Costa Mesa, played AYSO and club soccer with the Newport Beach-based Slammers, and attended Mater Dei High, had surgery after high school to shave down a bone in her knee, in order to relieve inflammation of her patellar tendon.
