NEWPORT BEACH - Righty against lefty, junior against freshman. The Battle of the Bay softball game turned into a pitcher's duel Tuesday at Bonita Creek Park. Newport Harbor junior Hattie Marshall and Corona del Mar freshman Sydney McKeown matched each other nearly pitch for pitch. Newport-Mesa Girls' Softball hosted the game. Plenty of young girls in Newport-Mesa uniforms watched the teams fail in their quests to put up crooked numbers on the nonexistent scoreboard. This was not the blowout of years past.

They had Manhattan Beach Mira Costa, the No. 3-ranked team in Division 1, on Tuesday. That is a tough back-to-back draw, but Newport Harbor Coach Steve Astor said he loves to play the best teams.

NEWPORT BEACH — The scoreboard went out before the start of the second half of Newport Harbor High's season opener. For the Sailors' sake, they did not really have to put up numbers on their scoreboard again. The defense and special teams bailed Newport Harbor out of trouble on numerous occasions on the football field Thursday night. Special teams recorded a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Sailors enough points to beat Trabuco Hills. Newport Harbor added a touchdown late as it won, 17-6, making it eight straight years the Sailors have kicked off the season with a victory.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO — Newport Harbor High senior linebacker Blair Luchs put the huge hit on the JSerra running back, standing him up and not allowing him to get anywhere near the goal line. Luchs came off the field and pulled his helmet off, revealing a bloodied nose as he smiled for a quick picture. But that was all right for the Sailors, whose physical play prevented the Lions from getting much going in the teams' scrimmage Thursday night at JSerra. The Sailors, ranked No. 9 in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division preseason poll, made sure they were as ready as possible for their season opener next Thursday against Trabuco Hills.

NEWPORT BEACH — The Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team was on fire for the first few minutes of Thursday's Aliso Cup game. The Sailors were taking it to visiting Palos Verdes, creating several scoring opportunities. Coach Larry Draluck called it "amazing" soccer. Senior midfielder Natalie Swift said the team "killed it" at the beginning of the game. But the Sea Kings didn't panic. Newport Harbor somehow lost its edge and lost, 3-1, in the pool-play game at Newport Harbor High.

NEWPORT BEACH - Larry Draluck is in his fifth year as the head coach of the Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team. The Sailors are aiming for their second straight CIF Southern Section Division I playoff appearance. They're also making something more intangible, but every bit as valuable - a winning culture. "If we can make the playoffs two years in a row, we've established some continuity here and an expectation of excellence," Draluck said. "In my first few years, that didn't exist.
