Laguna Hills

LAGUNA HILLS — A virulent first-half turnover virus was more than partially responsible for a surprisingly lopsided Pacific Coast League-opening loss for the Corona del Mar High football team Friday night. But host Laguna Hills, unbeaten and ranked No. 1 in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division, also had plenty to do with flattening the Sea Kings, 34-7. CdM (5-2, 0-1), ranked No. 4 in the Southern Division, committed four turnovers on its first five possessions, each one giving the Hawks (6-0, 1-0)

IRVINE — Brian Hurst started his Friday thinking of Corona del Mar High’s must-win Pacific Coast League playoff game. Lose and the Sea Kings miss the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. When the baseball team hopped on the bus after class, the senior learned of a new assignment. Hurst wasn’t playing second base. He was taking the mound. The last time Hurst pitched was on April 6. Hurst couldn’t remember if he pitched in league this season.

LAGUNA HILLS — The Corona del Mar High boys’ basketball team might have the best bench in the Pacific Coast League if Danny Cheek and Ramon Mejia continue to come off it. Coach Ryan Schachter would rather start his top two players, than sit next to them for long stretches during the game. That’s where the juniors found themselves during the first 11 minutes of the first half Friday night. Schachter didn’t start the guards after they were late to a practice heading into the league opener at Laguna Hills.

CORONA DEL MAR — The end result turned out to be less important to the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer team than how the match began. The Sea Kings tied Pacific Coast League foe Laguna Hills, 2-2, Thursday at home, but held a 2-0 lead at halftime on goals from sophomore Cosie Andujai and junior Lexi Hensen. The first half was polar opposite to Corona del Mar's league opener, a 3-0 loss to Beckman two days prior, giving Sea Kings Coach Bryan Middleton confidence his team (3-6-5, 0-1-1 in league)

Dancers pranced and pirouetted across the Plaza Arts Stage during Thursday’s performance at the Orange County Fair. They danced eight sets, ranging in style from lyrical ballads to modern rock. The girls were from the Pacific School of Ballet in Laguna Hills. They have been practicing for 10 months, and have come to the end of their performing season. The younger performers took the stage first, dancing to the classic song “The Loco-Motion.” They were followed by two jazzy sets and a traditional ballet solo.

CORONA DEL MAR — Some baseball players struggle when they have two strikes on them and some thrive in that situation. The 11- to 12-year-old Newport Beach Little League All-Stars appear to be the latter. After losing the first game of the District 55 Tournament and put into a win-or-go-home situation, Newport Beach has won five straight games in six days, the latest being an 8-5 semifinal victory against Aliso Viejo Saturday at Lincoln Elementary. The Newport Beach All-Stars won the second-chance bracket and made it to the finals to face Laguna Hills, again.

With the season in its latter stages, the Corona del Mar High football team has received a boost with a critical Pacific Coast League matchup against Laguna Hills. The Sea Kings are riding high on a four-game winning streak, but with the eighth game of the season tonight and Corona del Mar without a bye week this year, any amount of energy that can be drawn out of the opposition is useful. "They kinda got into that comfortable stage," said Coach Dick Freeman, who added it is easy to get this group of Sea Kings into a focused stage.

IRVINE — Cameron Monahan and Brett Olinger had two goals and two assists each to lead the Newport Harbor High junior varsity roller hockey team to the Interscholastic Hockey Federation championship with a 7-4 win over Laguna Hills at the 949 Roller Hockey Center in Irvine Wednesday. With the victory, Newport Harbor exacted revenge. Last month, the Sailors lost to Laguna Hills, 7-4. Ryan Iverson added one goal and three assists for the Sailors (16-2-1). Newport Harbor broke away from a 3-3 tie after the first period.

BY TONY LEE CORONA DEL MAR — Newport Beach All-Star Ben Humphreys is a good listener. With the hundreds of 11- to 12-year-old Newport Beach All-Stars fans chanting, “Let’s go Newport,” and “Go Ben” at Lincoln Elementary Tuesday, Humphreys decided to listen to a West Coast Charger Little Leaguer’s requests over all others. “Ben, if you hit a home run, I’ll give you a cookie,” Hugh Crance yelled from the right field bleachers, which were one of the many areas packed with Newport Beach fans.

CORONA DEL MAR — No one had to tell forward Joe Eberhard what do on the basketball court. The go-to-guy privileges at Corona del Mar High were his, just as they were for most of the summer with teammate Stefan Kaluz at AAU tournaments. Kaluz was gone again. This time because of foul trouble against you named it, Laguna Hills, Friday night. Once Kaluz headed for the bench before halftime, Eberhard poured it on. The 6-foot-6 senior allowed Kaluz to stay out for stretches to avoid getting tossed again against the Hawks.
