Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - The battered and bruised Orange Coast College Pirates nearly pulled off the impossible in their nonconference football game against visiting Mt. San Antonio Saturday night. With 1:37 remaining, OCC wide receiver Jon Jackson recovered a high, looping onside kick to give the Bucs a chance to win a game in which they practically had no business being so close. But, one short run and three incomplete passes later, OCC Coach Mike Taylor realized the bigger blow that came to his team, besides the 24-16 losing result.

Every year high school cross-country teams prepare for the challenges presented by the hilly course at Mt. San Antonio College - the site of the CIF Southern Section Division Finals - to improve their chances of advancing to the CIF State Meet. All that training was for naught this season because of rain Friday night and some light drizzle on the day of the Division Championships on Saturday, which pushed the event onto an alternate course that's flat and mostly paved. While some runners favored the switch, it spelled disaster and an end to the 2012 season for every local but Newport Harbor's Paige Tennison.

The Orange Coast College football team will take on Mt. San Antonio in the U.S. Bank Beach Bowl on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Santa Monica College, the Commission on Athletics announced Sunday. The Pirates (7-3) dropped out of the state championship tournament picture with Saturday's 17-13 loss to rival Golden West, but with the Southern California region's No. 8 ranking, they still earned the bowl and will face the No. 7 Mounties (8-2).

Barry Faulkner When Orange Coast College football coach Mike Taylor refers to tonight's 5 o'clock Mission Conference American Division game against visiting Mt. San Antonio as a huge game, he is invoking double meaning. First of all, the Pirates (1-5, 1-0 in the division) are hoping to continue the momentum created by last week's 21-14 division-opening win over Long Beach City, against a Mounties squad (5-1, 1-0) favored to earn its fourth conference championship in six seasons.

All CIF Southern Section cross-country runners know the path to Fresno's Woodward Park, site of the CIF State Championships, goes through the rigorous course at Mt. San Antonio College. Before even approaching the Central Valley, the local runners must do their best to conquer "Pool-Out Hill," at Mt. SAC to get that shot at Woodward Park. Corona del Mar High, Costa Mesa, Newport Harbor and Sage Hill School runners will make that attempt Saturday at the CIF Southern Section preliminaries, trying to move on to the finals again at Mt.

WALNUT - Marty Taylor's Saturday was over, in terms of throwing for Newport Harbor High at the CIF Southern Section Track and Field finals. He stuck around in the heat at Mt. San Antonio College, not to work on a tan. Taylor sat on the bleachers near the shotput ring to watch two throwers, his competition next week. Earlier in the day, Taylor won the discus throw with a mark of 181 feet, 5 inches, tops for all four divisions. The UCLA-bound senior's best shotput effort, a 60-4 throw, gave him the Division 2 title, but he knew it wasn't going to hold up as the meet's overall top mark.
