GIRLS' SOCCER La Mirada 1, Estancia 0 LA MIRADA — The Eagles played strong defense, but saw it season end after allowing a goal in the 65th minute of the CIF Southern Section Division 4 second-round game Tuesday. Estancia (10-3-11) fired off at least nine shots in the final 15 minutes, but couldn't find the back of the net, Eagles Coach Jessica Perry. Seniors Marlene Calderon and Shantel Romero as well as sophomore twins Sarah Leahy and Caitlin Leahy (goalkeeper), and freshman Brandi White led the Estancia defense, Perry said.

Tony Altobelli PLACENTIA - It was a good, old-fashioned trip to the woodshed for the Newport Harbor Baseball Association Pony 14 All-Star team in the first round of the district playoffs Friday night, losing, 9-0, to La Mirada. "What can I say except we got our butts kicked," Manager Taras Young said. "We came out flat and La Mirada took advantage of it. No matter how you look at it, we lost bad." Newport fell into an 8-0 hole after three innings, which was more than enough runs for the La Mirada pitching duo of Alex Schickling and Brice Stowell, who combined to strike out 14 Newport hitters, while allowing only four hits.

Richard Dunn ORANGE - There are moments during Costa Mesa High boys basketball practices when junior guard Nolan Clark plays with a certain edge, driving and slashing aggressively to the basket and finishing with a soft touch. The challenge for Mustangs Coach Bob Serven was to find a way to bring those moves out in Clark in a game. That game came Tuesday as Clark capped a big first quarter for the Mustangs, who won their third straight game, defeating La Mirada's Matadores, 60-42, in the opening round of the Orange Holiday Classic at Chapman University.

LA MIRADA — The Estancia High boys’ soccer team had rebounded well from a 1-6-2 start.

Jason Hitchens makes his coaching playoff debut in his first year at Corona del Mar High tonight. On paper, the No. 2-seeded Sea Kings (8-2) open with a first-round game, just as the rest of the schools in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs. Hitchens said the game against La Mirada (4-6) at Newport Harbor High at 7 p.m. feels more like a quarterfinal game. “You kind of need to get past the formula and look at the team itself,” said Hitchens, referring to La Mirada earning the Suburban League’s third playoff entry despite sharing second place with two others teams.

At the start of the season, one of the boys’ soccer teams Corona del Mar High Coach George Larsen said to look out for was La Mirada. Larsen has never seen the Matadores play in person this season, but he knows the game of soccer is huge in La Mirada. Larsen and the Sea Kings get to see the Matadores live for the first time Friday. The match will be the biggest in each of their respective program’s histories. Top-seeded CdM plays La Mirada in the CIF Southern Section Division IV championship at Mission Viejo High at 7 p.m. If you believe the Sea Kings’ 23-1-1 record is impressive, no team has figured a way to take down the Matadores this season.
