Since posting a 7-4 season that ended in a bowl game in 2006, the Orange Coast College football program has longed for mediocrity. With a 26-42 record (a winning percentage of 35.3), and a 9-27 mark against conference opponents (winning just 25% of the time) from 2007 on, Coach Mike Taylor's Pirates have inspired little fanfare and even fewer fans. But for a little more than the three hours it took for OCC to hand a stunning 55-48 loss to a Saddleback team that was ranked No. 21 in the state and No. 11 in Southern California on Saturday night, the Pirates put together one of their finest four-quarter performances in recent memory.

The concrete quadrangle of the cramped Orange Coast College pool might have, at times, been confused with an octagon Wednesday afternoon. Both the host Pirates and Golden West College were clearly in no mood to back down in the combative Orange Empire Conference first-place showdown in men's water polo. In the end, it was the Pirates who displayed more passivity, allowing the Rustlers to prevail, 13-10. Golden West (15-1, 4-0 in conference), ranked No. 1 in the state, showed the supreme confidence of a perennial state championship contender.

SANTA ANA - The last time Cameron Biedgoly faced Santa Ana College, the quarterback made his first start for Orange Coast College. He went on to set single-game school records for passing yards and touchdowns. That was last year. A lot has changed since Biedgoly's debut. Biedgoly saw Santa Ana again on Saturday. He came nowhere close to his record-setting day from a year ago. Biedgoly is no longer the starter. When he got his chance, he played about two quarters. Biedgoly's second quarter in action is when the Dons ran away from the Pirates.

The Orange Coast College women's volleyball team is ranked No. 8 in the state for a reason. Coach Chuck Cutenese's Pirates entered the week 6-0, having won 18 of 21 games and boasting a strong outside hitter, superb defense anchored by one of the most prolific liberos in California, two quality middle blockers, and many other characteristics of a championship contender. But after back-to-back losses within a three-day span, including a 25-17, 20-25, 25-21, 25-22 Orange Empire Conference home setback to No. 3-ranked Golden West on Friday night, Cutenese's immediate challenge is cultivating confidence.

The Orange Coast College sports information department handed out the annual football yearbook before Saturday's Southern Conference game against visiting Grossmont. It turned out that the historical document came in handy, as research was required to confirm the worst day, numerically at least, in the 66-season history of the program. The Pirates (1-4, 0-2 in conference) surrendered their largest single-game scoring output ever in a 77-19 loss to the Griffins (4-1, 2-0). The 58-point margin was also the most lopsided defeat in 650 games since the program debuted in 1948.
