TUSTIN — The opponent's quarterback was named Hazard and the hosts also donned stop-sign red jerseys for the first time all season. As omens go, one might suggest the visiting Estancia High football team had come up empty Friday night against Beckman at Tustin High. The Eagles also experienced emptiness on the scoreboard in a 31-0 nonleague setback. For the fourth straight game, Estancia (1-4) also missed out on the fulfillment of victory, as the Patriots (3-2) earned their third shutout of the season.

NEWPORT COAST — After the game Tuesday, Sage Hill School boys’ soccer coach Noureddine El Alam had one final instruction to his team. “We’re having team pictures [today],” El Alam said. “You guys need to wash your clothes.” The Lightning, playing on a field still muddy from the weekend rains, slipped up in dropping a 2-0 decision to Oxford Academy at Sage Hill. It was Sage Hill’s first Academy League game after earning a forfeit win over Capistrano Valley Christian last week.

CORONA DEL MAR - As the carnage mounted Tuesday in his team's first-place Pacific Coast League baseball showdown with host Beckman High, Corona del Mar Coach John Emme had plenty of time to think what he could possibly say to his team afterward. So, after the Sea Kings bumbled through a 17-0 bludgeoning at the hands of the Patriots that included as many CdM errors as hits (five), 12 walks by CdM pitchers, seven unearned runs and the most lopsided loss in at least eight seasons and likely much longer, the 15th-year head man conjured his most palatable postgame message.

In a Pacific Coast League game featuring first-place Beckman against fourth-place Corona del Mar it appeared it would be a tight one … through the first three innings. But then came chaos in the fourth inning. Well, it was chaos for CdM. Yet it was a bonafide, two-out rally for the Patriots, who scored seven runs and went on to beat the Sea Kings, 11-2, Friday at CdM. It left the Sea Kings (6-16, 4-7 in league) needing to win their final four regular-season games for a playoff berth and it left the Patriots (20-2, 10-1)

CORONA DEL MAR — Aly Vislocky is in her third season in charge of the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team. There was one thing she came to expect in her first two seasons. One team in the Pacific Coast League always gave the Sea Kings fits. "In the years past, in all honesty, we approached [the] Beckman [game] as an impossible victory," Vislocky said. "My girls know they can do it this year. " The Sea Kings' first chance this year to prove they can beat the Patriots failed, but not as miserably as in the past.

IRVINE - The day after many of the players on the Corona del Mar High girls' lacrosse team returned from the three-day Stagecoach Country Music Festival, they had a huge Pacific Coast League game against Beckman. The festival was much more fun for the Sea Kings than the game at the Patriots' field Monday. CdM stayed competitive for most of the contest, but at the end the goals dried up, just like the festival grounds in the desert in Indio. The resulting 13-9 Beckman victory means that CdM is most likely denied its first outright league title in program history.

In terms of the rankings, the result of Wednesday's Pacific Coast League girls' lacrosse match had to be considered an upset. Beckman came into the match ranked No. 4 in Southern California by laxpower.com, and CdM was No. 10. The Patriots, who own impressive wins over Los Alamitos and Mater Dei, were also the top-ranked team in Orange County. CdM was again at the No. 10 spot. The team that always seems to have the "LAX power" in the league is Beckman. But CdM might just be ready to change that this year.

Today we begin a short series about some of America's greatest patriots. We start with the greatest: George Washington. At a funeral oration for Washington, which was given to both houses of Congress on Dec. 26, 1799, Gen. Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee famously stated that Washington was "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen. " That was demonstrably true at that time and should be still true today. Washington was elected to the presidency by a unanimous vote.

My brother Dan and I always loved the Fourth of July bike parade at Mariners Park. After we won a prize ribbon one year, it became our annual goal to have the most over-the-top bike-powered float. The pinnacle of our success came the year we presented the Boston Tea Party, complete with my brother tossing shoe boxes marked "TEA" over the side of a ship made from a discarded voting booth, my Schwinn Stingray straining to pull it all. It was the late 1970s – the days of stagflation, gas lines and the bitter aftertaste of a long ambiguous war. But there was also the memory of the 1976 bicentennial celebration of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence — and a sense that under the peeling paint, the country's bones were still good.

The New England Patriots have been the model franchise for the National Football League. Owner Robert Kraft embodies all the best values we look for in sports — character, integrity, stability and high standards for off-field behavior. They were the team that released defensive tackle Christian Peter, who they drafted in the fifth round in 1996, two days after picking him when they discovered a disturbing history of prior arrests. How did they ever choose to draft murder suspect Aaron Hernandez, who dropped to the fourth round because of character issues at the University of Florida?

The New England Patriots have signed quarterback Tim Tebow. They may be the only team in the NFL that can manage the consequences. It has been a long, cold winter for Tebow as he searched for an NFL team to sign with after being cut earlier by the New York Jets. He is a gifted player but there have been no takers. Why? Tebow had a transcendent University of Florida career and won the Heisman Trophy. He was drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos.

NEWPORT BEACH - An old-timer showed up to watch the Newport Harbor High baseball team play at home on Saturday. A woman asked the former Sailor, Bob Nettles, if he needed a chair. He declined. The 83-year-old brought his own seat to the afternoon game. Nettles settled in and opened his program. Inside of it, there was a page dedicated to him, along with his teammates from the 1948 team. While he's not in the team photo, Nettles likes to point out he played on the Sailors' only baseball championship team.

One of the first things Beckman High girls' volleyball coach Darin McBain did in preparation for the season was take a look at the schedule. And in particular, McBain looked for those three letters just about every coach in the Pacific Coast League needs to find - CdM. Corona del Mar is the team to beat in league, as usual, and McBain wanted to highlight the dates his team will play them. And specifically, McBain was looking for the first of the two meetings - Oct. 10 in Beckman's home gym. "We've challenged them in years past," said McBain, in his fifth season leading the program.
