All game long, the Beckman High boys' basketball team more than hung around at Corona del Mar. The Patriots just didn't give themselves their best shot to stick around longer on Tuesday night. Down three points with 17.6 seconds left, Beckman opted to drive to the basket. With the clock winding down, the play near the baseline wasn't by design. Beckman Coach Brady Richards wanted to run a three-point play, to tie the game and send it into overtime. What Richards got was an ill-advised shot and Beckman missed its shot to move into a first-place tie with CdM in the Pacific Coast League.

Matt Sherburne grew up playing basketball and baseball, but his father Rick always wanted him to try water polo. Rick was certainly successful in the water. He played water polo for Sunny Hills High and UCLA in the 1970s. While in Westwood, he was part of the Bruins' 1979 national finalist team, and he earned all-NCAA Tournament honors. Matt was fine with trying out water polo. He got his feet wet, so to speak, in the seventh grade with longtime Coach Ted Bandaruk. Matt grew to love water polo.

Less than a quarter into the game, the Northwood High football team had already scored more points than Corona del Mar's first four opponents in the Pacific Coast League.

The response on defense came quickly. Northwood couldn't score again until the final minutes of the game, when CdM was well in control.
