COSTA MESA - The Costa Mesa High girls tennis team got its second win of the season Friday, pushing past nonleague visitor Los Amigos, 11-6, Friday at Costa Mesa. The Mustangs would have swept in singles if it weren't for the rain. Hillary Havens and Misa Lee took out Los Amigos' top three singles players. Sunglee Kim defeated the No. 2 and 3 players for Los Amigos, but the match against the Lobos' No. 1 was called because of rain. Costa Mesa won four of the nine sets in doubles as the Mustangs improved to 2-4 on the season.

Corona del Mar High boys basketball coach Ryan Curry said the inevitable letdown after his team took an 18-4 first-quarter lead never came Monday. The result allowed the Sea Kings to paste Los Amigos, 73-43, in the first round of the Aztec Classic at La Quinta High. Sophomore Ryan Lance paced CdM with 16 points, while senior Pancho Seaborn chipped in 13 as 11 Sea Kings scored. "We played really well, with a lot of high energy," said Curry, whose team improved to 1-1.

Tony Altobelli COSTA MESA - In one of the better-pitched games in recent memory, Costa Mesa High's baseball team was edged out by Los Amigos, 1-0, Tuesday night at TeWinkle Park. Too bad the outfielders missed a good chunk of the excitement. With a heavy fog and a chance of cancellation hanging over the field, Costa Mesa right-hander Brent Stevens and Lobos' hurler Rafael Jesus pressed on and managed to shut down the offense of both teams. "It was just a well-played game on both sides," Coach Kirk Bauermeister said.

Richard Dunn GARDEN GROVE - In the final holiday tournament of the season, Corona del Mar High is starting to think about overall victories and a possible chance in the CIF Southern Section girls basketball playoffs. But, first, Coach Elbert Davis' Sea Kings (4-10) need to start accumulating wins. "It's a little disappointing," Davis said, after Los Amigos defeated CdM, 64-52, in pool play Friday in the 12th annual Cavalier Classic at Santiago High, where the Sea Kings dropped all three games in their pool.

Costa Mesa High announced that it has hired Juan Becerra as its boys' soccer coach. Becerra coached at Los Amigos the past five seasons, leading the program to the CIF Southern Section playoffs each season. Last season, Los Amigos won the Garden Grove League title for the second straight time and then reached the Division V quarterfinals, where the Lobos (16-1-1, 10-0-0 in league) lost to Baldwin Hills in penalty kicks. "My goal is to make the program at Costa Mesa one of the best in Orange County," Becerra said in a press release.

COSTA MESA - At one point in the first half Thursday night, Costa Mesa High football coach Wally Grant said he ran the same running play 18 times in a row. No, Grant was not playing the Madden video game. He was coaching the Mustangs against a tough opponent in Los Amigos. But when you have two talented running backs and a tough offensive line, that strategy can be successful. Costa Mesa used big nights from junior Oronde Crenshaw and senior Justin Smith to secure a big 40-14 nonleague victory over the Lobos at Orange Coast College.

COSTA MESA - By the time the Estancia High football team finally got in the end zone Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium, the home fans were more than a little restless. After senior quarterback Brad Wilson ran in the conversion run, those fans did not see the Eagles' tally on the scoreboard change from six to eight points. They yelled to the scoreboard operator to change the points. He had done so, but nobody could see the change, as some of the lights on the scoreboard are apparently burned out. It didn't really matter.

GARDEN GROVE - For the second week in a row, the Costa Mesa High football team woke up in the second half against a team ranked in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division. For the second week in a row, it came just a little bit too late. Down by 20 points in the third quarter Friday night at Bolsa Grande High, the Mustangs responded with a pair of touchdowns. They were driving in the final minutes, too, for a potential stunning victory. But Los Amigos intercepted a deflected pass in the middle of the field with 59 seconds left to play, helping the Lobos hang on for a 20-14 nonleague win. Costa Mesa (1-3)

GARDEN GROVE - Without a doubt, Costa Mesa High could not get anything going in all three phases against Los Amigos in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs Friday at Garden Grove High. The Mustangs' special teams allowed two Anthony Magana punt returns for touchdowns, the first producing a 10-7 lead the Lobos never relinquished. On defense, Costa Mesa was at least a half-step slow as it allowed a 63-yard touchdown sprint by running back Leonard Zambrano, the backbreaker that gave Los Amigos (9-2)

GARDEN GROVE - The most unexpected thing for the Corona del Mar High football team came before Friday night's CIF Southern Section Southern Division quarterfinal playoff game even began. Coach Scott Meyer said several players had personal items stolen from the locker room while they were out on the field at Bolsa Grande High warming up. Meyer said Estancia players also had items stolen last week during their game against Los Amigos at the same venue. "They told us it was all locked up and they put new locks on the doors," Meyer said.

GARDEN GROVE - Listed at 5 feet 7, 180 pounds - both likely embellished - Estancia High senior Diego Herrera would hardly appear to be the one player the Eagles could not afford to lose. But when Herrera went down with a right ankle sprain midway through Estancia's first offensive possession Friday in a CIF Southern Section Southern Division first-round playoff game against Los Amigos at Bolsa Grande High, it may just as well have been a blow to the visitors' Achilles' heel, as the Eagles trailed from the outset and couldn't recover, falling, 33-12.

In agony, Tyler Thomas asked his dad for one thing before he took him to the hospital eight weeks ago. "I wanted In-N-Out [Burger]," says Thomas, who soon found out he would be out of the lineup for the Estancia High football team. Thomas learned the pain from that night on Sept. 20 was due to injuries he suffered on the field while playing at Irvine High. Irvine is where Christopher Thomas, Tyler's father, played football. He watched his alma mater take down Estancia, 40-6, and his son. The young Thomas says he dislocated his left shoulder and fractured his collarbone.

As you can tell this season, I haven't done so well picking high school football games. This week I went winless. For the year, I'm 15-10. There are at least five more weeks left in the season. The biggest game in town next week is the Battle for the Bell. The game between rivals Costa Mesa and Estancia is on Friday at Jim Scott Stadium at 7 p.m. The Mustangs are the home team this year. While Estancia holds a 27-18-1 edge in the series, I believe Costa Mesa will claim the 47th edition of the game.
