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.

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.

Had a sobering experience the other day. Fellow runners Jill and Tony put me in the back seat of their big Suburban and wore me out driving the Los Angeles Marathon course. Tony drove, Jill's an excellent navigator, so I did nothing but sit on my posterior and peer out the window. Starting with the downslope and two big hills out of Dodger Stadium, through the adjacent neighborhoods toward Echo Park, marathoners navigate about nine turns. That only gets us to Mile 5. I worked so hard peering out the window at this labyrinth, it felt as if I'd run 10 miles.

LA MIRADA - Randy Dodge is still looking for a home away from home. It's safe to say the Vanguard University men's soccer coach can cross Biola University off the list of sites that are standing in for the Lions' on-campus facility, which is still awaiting completion of turf instillation. Visiting Westmont thumped the Lions, 2-0, on Tuesday at Biola in the Golden State Athletic Conference opener for both schools. It was the first "home" game on the schedule for Vanguard, which plays host to Hope International on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Santa Ana Community College.

COSTA MESA - Much of the allure of an NFL preseason is the play of the quarterbacks. Often, the story line calls for fans to get behind a backup they hope might eventually displace a starter. There is also the flat-out competition for the starting job that overtakes some NFL training camps and plays out before the fans in preseason games. But if one was apt to read too much into the play of four Orange Coast College quarterbacks in the team's intrasquad football scrimmage on Saturday, Pirates Coach Mike Taylor might wish to quell such a notion.

COSTA MESA - Jackie Hubbard spent last year at Edison High. She didn't play soccer at the school. She never played in high school until this season, when she transferred to Estancia.

" Coach Jessica Perry has sweetened the deal for players like Hubbard at Estancia. On Valentine's Day, Hubbard and her teammates received candy from Perry.
