LONG BEACH - Five match points saved, and the home crowd at Long Beach City College got very concerned. The Orange Coast College men's volleyball team came so close to forcing a deciding fifth set Saturday night in the California Community College Athletic Assn. men's volleyball state championship match. A 24-19 fourth-set deficit suddenly became 24-24, and the Pirates were pumped. Long Beach, the No. 1-ranked team in the state poll all season, did not panic. An OCC shot wide gave the Vikings their sixth match point, and they capitalized.

The objective for most baseball offenses is to knock out the starting pitcher and eventually feast on relievers. But if the first 10 games are any indication, Orange Coast College opponents this season should be careful what they wish for. The Pirates used five combined innings of hitless, scoreless relief from winner Brian Bass and Parker Manahan to secure a 9-2 nonconference triumph over visiting Long Beach City College on Tuesday, continuing a...

COSTA MESA - The shorthanded Orange Coast College men's volleyball team pushed defending state champion Long Beach City College to the limit on Friday night before the Vikings found the upper hand down the stretch for a five-set win inside OCC's Peterson Gym.

Tony Altobelli COSTA MESA - Who would have thought that Long Beach City College, which last year went undefeated in the Northern Division, 10-1 overall and outscored its first-four opponents last year, 211-17, would be looking UP at Orange Coast College in the Mission Conference Northern Division standings heading into Saturday's matchup. Game time is at 7 p.m. Pirates Coach Mike Taylor isn't buying into the notion that the Vikings are as bad their winless conference record would indicate.

LONG BEACH - Coaches are known for their idiosyncrasies, but Orange Coast College men's volleyball head man Travis Turner sounded a bit confused when asked about his team's strong start against Grossmont in the semifinals of the California Community College Athletic Assn. state championship on Thursday. "When we were up, 17-6, I was worried," said Turner, whose youthful team has been known to squander early success. "Because I thought that [the Pirates] aren't very mature, so a lead is sometimes tough for them to play with.

COSTA MESA - On a night when the Orange Coast College football program turned back the clock to honor its first national championship team of 50 years ago, the current edition of Pirates dialed down the intensity enough to encounter a humbling defeat. Long Beach City College (1-2), which came in on a 14-game losing streak and had allowed 85 points in its first two losses this season, scored the game's first 19 points and pounded its way to a 46-16 triumph at OCC. OCC (1-2) appeared sluggish on both sides of the ball and committed the game's only two turnovers, which the Vikings turned into touchdowns during a stretch in which they scored on four straight first-half possessions to build a 19-0 cushion.
