COSTA MESA Quinton Bell helped Costa Mesa High put away Estancia in the Battle for the Bell rivalry game last week, returning an interception 49 yards for a touchdown late. In doing so, Coach Wally Grant said his linebacker suffered a partially collapsed lung and will be out this week. "After that interception, it was hard for him to catch his breath," said Grant, adding that Bell was breathing violently after the Mustangs beat Estancia, 31-18, at Jim Scott Stadium. "It's actually a quite common injury among adolescent boys.

In the offseason, Oronde Crenshaw ran from his house near Costa Mesa High to a campus across town. The trip is one he made every other weekend. The 3.1-mile run led him to Jim Scott Stadium, on the campus of rival Estancia. When he arrived, the site reminded him of the one football team he and Costa Mesa failed to beat in the last three years in Orange Coast League play. Crenshaw returned to the stadium on Friday night to face that team one last time before he graduates. A bus brought Crenshaw, saving his legs for the contest.

The water polo game ended in a football score Wednesday, just before the skies opened up with pouring rain. Two days before the Battle for the Bell football game, the contest was played in water polo at Costa Mesa's pool. The Mustangs topped rival Estancia, 20-7, and they wouldn't mind a similar score on Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium. In water polo, it was a good start to Orange Coast League play for Costa Mesa (7-4). Quinn Smith, a junior, led the way for the Mustangs with seven goals.

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.

In a span of nine offensive plays, everything fell apart for Newport Harbor High. Coach Jeff Brinkley saw two players jump early, then one slipped and fell on his butt during a pass, another dropped a pass that hit him in the numbers, and the last player fumbled the ball. All of the gaffes cost the Sailors any chance of coming back late on Friday night. The Sailors' bid to win consecutive games for the first time this season ended with a 33-21 setback to Manhattan Beach Mira Costa.

On many Tuesday nights, up to two dozen football players pack a classroom at Costa Mesa High. They arrive after a long and grueling football practice for help with their schoolwork. Some players don't even have to show up for tutoring. They come and support their teammates who need to improve their grades or improve in certain subjects. Some come to just eat. "It's not a cheap dinner. They're getting some solid food in there," Costa Mesa Coach Wally Grant says of the chicken and steak bowls players ate on a recent Tuesday night.

You might be seeing a lot of Mason Muñoz at Estancia High whenever there is a girls' volleyball match this year. Mason is the 11-week-old son of Paul Muñoz, the coach of the Eagles. The Muñoz family brought the newborn to Thursday's Orange Coast League opener against Costa Mesa. In the first match Mason attended, daddy's team won. Muñoz led the Eagles to a 25-23, 25-16, 25-19 sweep. Muñoz calls his first child his go-to guy, but whenever Estancia plays its cross-town rival, it hasn't needed much help.
