COSTA MESA ? Any game between geographically-close Andersen Elementary and Harbor Day School is a rivalry game between the two schools. Many of the students play club soccer together. Playing for his school, Nicolas Sargeant made sure this battle had a happy ending for Harbor Day. Sargeant had a pair of assists in the final three minutes of the game as Harbor Day came out on top, 2-0, in a boys' third- and fourth-grade Gold game. With the win, the Seahawks (2-0) clinch their pool and an automatic bid into the quarterfinals.

Marisa O'Neil John Collett has told the story countless times before. But no matter how many times the former Army Ranger tells people about holding off enemy fire for 18 hours in Mogadishu's Bakara Market on Oct. 3, 1993, no matter how many times they see "Black Hawk Down" -- Hollywood's version of the battle -- they can't have any concept of what he and the other soldiers went through. And he doesn't expect them to. "For those of us who lived, we will always remember; for those who died, they will never be forgotten; for those who weren't there, they will hopefully never understand," he wrote when he returned from the mission the next day. Though the 32-year-old Costa Mesa resident served as a consultant and stunt man in "Black Hawk Down," he's never seen the film.

Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - As Newport Harbor High boys basketball coach Larry Hirst mapped out the Sea View League campaign last week, Friday night's home game against Laguna Hills was circled on his calendar as a victory. And, at the beginning, the Sailors indeed played as if they'd scouted Laguna Hills more than once. But, after a huge first quarter, it turned into another Sea View barnburner as Laguna Hills rallied, before the Sailors held on for a 59-50 win. "If we played hard, we knew what we could do, and I think the first quarter was evidence of that," said Hirst, whose team raced to an opening 16-2 lead, before going ahead, 23-5, for its first of two 18-point advantages in the first half.
