Steady pitching and a few timely hits gave Newport the win. Newport starter Nick Svendsen pitched five strong innings, allowing no runs and one hit while striking out four.

Joseph Boo CORONA DEL MAR - Well, Corona del Mar High's girls basketball team finally ended it's 18-game losing streak against Back Bay rival Newport Harbor at home on Saturday. Despite the 48-21 score, the win wasn't pretty, it wasn't emphatic, it wasn't a league win, and it didn't embarrass the Sailors the same way Newport did against CdM for so many years. But it was a win,and CdM will take that gladly. "We just wanted to beat them," CdM Coach Elbert Davis said.

Embattled Newport Beach Police Chief John Klein has announced that he would step down, officials said Tuesday. The surprising announcement about Klein, who has been assailed by union leaders in recent weeks for the way he was promoted, was made at a City Council meeting. He will leave the top post later this month. The city’s Civil Service Board is investigating the way the city promotes its officers after it has come to light that City Manager Home Bludau did not follow the correct procedure when promoting him to top cop two years ago. Bludau has said he thought he followed the right protocol and wanted to promote from within because he felt that was best for morale.

Newport Harbor High's Trisha Orth headed a ball into the net three and a half minutes into the game, but Aliso Niguel's Christina Paet equalized later in the period and the two Sea View League teams finished deadlocked, 1-1, Tuesday at Newport. Senior Taryn Flamson took a corner kick from Amy Burlingham and passed it to the top of the six-yard box where Orth headed it in.

Barry Faulkner IRVINE - For the better part of five innings, San Clemente Little League pitcher Tim Troyer appeared to have mastered the principles of jet propulsion in the winner's bracket semifinal of the District 55 Majors Division All-Star Tournament Wednesday night at Hicks Canyon Park. But then came what Newport Beach National Manager Bob Rovzar later called "a rocket ship" to right field, interrupting San Clemente's orbit into Saturday's winner's bracket final.

IRVINE — Newport Harbor High's Cameron Monahan was the league's leading scorer last year, so at first glance it might not make sense to see him between the pipes. Actually, goalie was his first position and it remains a favorite, even after eight years in roller hockey. So he was happy to comply on Wednesday night. Monahan stopped seven shots and the Sailors beat rival Corona del Mar, 7-1, at the Irvine Roller Hockey Center in an Interscholastic Hockey Federation JV-A game.
