A bit of luck along with some opportune pitching provided the Costa Mesa High softball team with a 2-1 Golden West League victory over visiting Santa Ana Friday. Sophomore Uyen Mai was credited with what proved to be the game-winning RBI on her fly ball to center field in the bottom of the sixth inning. With two out, the score tied, 1-1, and senior Jennifer Jordan on third base, Mai popped the ball to center. There was confusion over who would catch it and the ball fell, Costa Mesa Coach Rick Buonarigo said.

Bryce Alderton The Orange Coast College men's soccer team faced two battles on its home turf in Tuesday's Orange Empire Conference showdown with first-place and undefeated Santa Ana. The Pirates dueled the team a game ahead of them in the conference standings while struggling, along with the Dons, to keep their emotions on an even keel during the physical contest. After two hours, Orange Coast found itself no better or worse in the standings, but confident it had given Santa Ana a scare following a 3-3 tie. The Pirates' three goals were the most the Dons, who had outscored their previous opponents, 15-4, had allowed this season.

SANTA ANA - Newport Harbor High was a 1-0 winner over host Santa Ana Tuesday in Sunset League field hockey, the winning edge provided by a goal from Caitlin Farrell in the first minute of play. Amanda Wittman got the shutout with six saves, two of the diving stop variety. Athena Vasquez was outstanding at center-midfielder for the Tars, now 1-1-0. Santa Ana falls to 0-1-1. A price was paid in the form of Carlin Schneider, who took a nasty stick to the head in the second half and, with a considerable loss of blood, was taken to a hospital, said a concerned Coach Sharon Wolfe.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - After an April 5 loss at Saddleback College left the Orange Coast baseball team 9-7 in Orange Empire Conference play, Pirates Coach John Altobelli decided it was time to make a point with his players. Make that a power point. Altobelli, in his 22nd season at the helm, broke out a 5-year-old power-point presentation made after the Pirates captured the 2009 state title. The visual compilation illustrated how that team came through great adversity, including the death of then-redshirt catcher Jourdan Watanabe, to claim the program's first state crown since 1980.

His behavior became erratic when he stopped taking the prescriptions altogether. He hailed a cab but failed to pay the fare. His parents, Melissa and Dave, started searching for him.

Amid a four-team logjam within one game of the Orange Empire Conference lead, one would think Orange Coast College was dealing with enough competition. But the No. 1-ranked baseball team in Southern California found a way to add yet another opponent on Saturday: Itself. The Pirates committed four errors that led to three unearned runs, made other poor decisions not reflected in the scorebook, and virtually wasted a chance to join a tie atop the OEC standings in an 8-6 loss to visiting Santa Ana. The setback drops OCC (18-6, 6-4 in conference)

For Deanne Tate, president and chief executive of Veterans First, the selling points of the Orange County nonprofit's new digs are many. At about 9,300 square feet, the second-floor office suite in the heart of downtown Santa Ana has upwards of three times the space of the organization's previous headquarters, which Tate described as "an open pit" where it was difficult to carry on a productive conversation with the homeless and at-risk veterans who...

Investigators said they discovered 404 non-venomous snakes - 180 alive, 224 dead - inside rows of clear plastic containers with labels reading "pastel reaper," "cinny ghost" and "orange belly.

SANTA ANA — Mike Thornton retired from teaching a few years ago, but he still delivers lessons as quickly and quantitatively as any professor still commanding a classroom. Rather than use a blackboard and an overhead projector, the 25th-year coach of the Orange Coast College women's basketball team relies, these days, on a clipboard and voice projection to tutor his uniformed pupils. And as Wednesday night's painstakingly earned 71-62 win over Orange Empire Conference host Santa Ana proved to anyone within earshot of Thornton and his staff of assistants, these Pirates are far from advanced when it comes to on-court intelligence.
