Corona del Mar High senior girls' soccer goalie Kendall Mulvaney said she knew Fountain Valley was going to shoot to the right - her left - in the shootout. It worked the first time the teams played, in late December when the Barons won a consolation game at the North Orange County Classic via shootout. But Friday night at Jim Scott Stadium, Mulvaney, the four-year varsity player, was ready. And, while CdM surely has a long way to go on its quest for its first-ever CIF title, the Sea Kings just as surely have been giving their fans their money's worth in the last three games.

When Andrew Francini and Nate Pozin aren't playing soccer for Corona del Mar High, you can find the two playing inside a garage on Point Loma Drive. They cannot blast the soccer ball inside, just music. Francini and Pozin are part of a three-member Indie Rock band. The band's name is "Point Loma" and it named itself after the street it jams on. The teenagers use Pozin's garage as their jam pad and it can get loud whenever Francini is on guitar, Pozin is on the drums, and Kyle Mohan is on the mic. Neighbors can hear the three CdM seniors rock out and they have complained.

On the surface, Corona del Mar High's 3-0 win in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 boys' soccer playoffs looks like an easy win. It was far from that on Thursday. Glendale, traveling a long distance for the second time in three days during the postseason, made it hard on the Sea Kings through most of the match, until the hosts scored two late goals. A goal on a penalty kick and one on a 35-yard free kick doomed Glendale's chances of coming back again in the playoffs.

The first home game of the postseason felt more like an away game Thursday night for the Corona del Mar High girls' basketball team. The first week of the CIF Southern Section playoffs also is "ski week" in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, so student supporters were at a bare minimum. There were only about 30 CdM fans in the stands at opening tip-off. Visiting Orange High, by contrast, had a loud and spirited student section and brought cheerleaders. "At times it felt like [an away game]

As players warmed up in the Corona del Mar High gym, Magnolia Coach Matt Tweed talked to a couple of fans in the stands that made the road trip to support his boys' basketball team. The topic was running, not the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA basketball playoffs. He told the fans about CdM's well-known distance coach, Bill Sumner. The school's basketball team ended up running circles around Magnolia on the court. Fourth-seeded CdM ran away from the Sentinels in the second half en route to a 58-27 win on Wednesday.

Corona del Mar High junior Shelby Brown is not the kind of girls' soccer player to boast about her accomplishments. Things got a little bit testy on Twitter after the Sea Kings won two games in dramatic fashion this week. They beat Beckman, 2-1, on Tuesday after a Patriots penalty kick went over the goal on the final play of the game. Then on Thursday, they rallied to stun Northwood, 3-2, and claim their fourth straight outright Pacific Coast League title. Some of the more vocal CdM players got into it a bit on the social media site with players from the other teams.

IRVINE - This has been a difficult year at times for the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer team. The Sea Kings lost the Battle of the Bay game for the first time in four years. In the Pacific Coast League, they seemed to always be chasing Northwood for first place. Yet, in the span of 20 brilliant, emotional, heart-stopping minutes, the Sea Kings cast all of that aside Thursday at Northwood High. The bid for a fourth straight outright league title seemed gone midway through the second half of the league finale.

In and out of the pool, Corona del Mar High senior Bobbi Hoose is affected by tremors in her hands and arms. Hoose, a senior captain for the CdM girls' water polo team, has dealt with her condition of having essential familiar tremors her whole life. "It always happens," she said. "I can't hold coffee, and it's hard for me to write sometimes ... I don't think about it in the game. " In the game, the tremors sometimes make it difficult for her to make fast movements. But visiting Santa Margarita couldn't tell the difference Wednesday in a key nonleague game at CdM. Hoose led CdM with three goals as the Sea Kings edged the Eagles, 8-7. Corona del Mar (22-4)

TUSTIN - The game came down to a Beckman penalty kick in the eighth minute of extra time, with a CdM defender in goal as the goalie had just been issued a yellow card. The penalty kick went over the cage, and the whole CdM team rushed defender Brianna Westrup in celebration as the final whistle blew. A strange ending to an intense game, but the Sea Kings definitely will take it. Their hopes for a fourth straight outright Pacific Coast League title live another day after they outlasted Beckman, 2-1, at Tustin High on Tuesday night.
