Patrick Laverty For the first time since joining the Golden West League two years ago, Estancia High lost a girls basketball game. What Eagles Coach Tami Rappa wants to remind her team is that Tuesday's loss doesn't mean nearly as much as the next 11 games. "I need to let them know that this does not define our season," Rappa said. "We got dealt a bad egg. Hopefully, this will make us work harder." Estancia went through its first season in the Golden West League last year undefeated, claiming the league crown.

CORONA DEL MAR — Max Bergeson and his father worked out a deal. Garth Bergeson pays for his son’s cellphone bill, only if Max picks up whenever he calls. While in the water Tuesday, the younger Bergeson answered the most important call. Not from dad, from the Corona del Mar High boys’ water polo team. Bergeson gave the Sea Kings a cushion by scoring with 47 seconds left against Long Beach Wilson. The goal proved to be the game-winner in a 14-13 nonleague victory at home.

Patrick Laverty And the streak goes on. Probably. The Costa Mesa High girls basketball team did its part, winning the final two games of the season, including a 38-25 defeat of visiting Santa Ana Thursday, to reach the 11 wins necessary to be eligible for a postseason at-large berth. Now the Mustangs (11-13, 5-7 in Golden West League play) must sit back and await the decision on their playoff fate. There is an excellent chance that they will extend their consecutive playoff appearance streak to 15 years.

Barry Faulkner The CIF Southern Section Division II girls water polo quarterfinal Tuesday between visiting El Dorado High and Corona del Mar was delayed 30 minutes due to concerns over lightning. But the real storm didn't start until the second quarter, when the top-seeded Sea Kings scored four times to open a 5-0 halftime lead. CdM, seeking its fourth consecutive CIF title, its third straight in Division II, scored another four in the third quarter en route to a 10-2 triumph.

All game long, the Beckman High boys' basketball team more than hung around at Corona del Mar. The Patriots just didn't give themselves their best shot to stick around longer on Tuesday night. Down three points with 17.6 seconds left, Beckman opted to drive to the basket. With the clock winding down, the play near the baseline wasn't by design. Beckman Coach Brady Richards wanted to run a three-point play, to tie the game and send it into overtime. What Richards got was an ill-advised shot and Beckman missed its shot to move into a first-place tie with CdM in the Pacific Coast League.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Corona del Mar High sophomore Maddie Musselman managed to score a key goal, get a key steal and frustrate her head coach - all within the final minute of the game. The first two actions were key in helping the Sea Kings earn an 8-6 victory over host Santa Margarita in the Holiday Cup quarterfinals on Friday. Even the third ended up providing a unifying moment for the Sea Kings. Musselman dumped the ball with seven seconds left on the shot clock. CdM Coach Ross Sinclair, who ended up a bit aggravated by this, said after the game that she was looking at the scoreboard and saw a "one," which she thought indicated the shot clock but actually indicated that CdM had one timeout left.

CORONA DEL MAR — Max Bergeson says that when he has his shot blocked on a five-meter penalty shot it’s demoralizing. But the Corona del Mar High senior knows not to let it get to him. In a wild CIF Southern Section Division I quarterfinal boys’ water polo match, Bergeson used it as motivation. He scored the game-winning goal with four seconds left to lift the Sea Kings past visiting Ventura, 15-14, Friday. With two seconds left on the shot clock, Bergeson threw a cross-cage lob shot that hit the bar and went in, CdM Coach Barry O’Dea said.

Joseph Boo MISSION VIEJO - It seems that no matter what Costa Mesa High's boys basketball team did, it could not take a lead. Actually, the Mustangs did lead, 2-0. Then, Carson steadily applied the pressure to pull out a 66-58 win in Monday's semifinal game of the Reebok Millennium Classic at Trabuco Hills High. "We hung tough. We had our chances," Costa Mesa Coach Bob Serven said. Costa Mesa (7-3) will play the Monday's Santa Margarita-Trabuco Hills loser for third place tonight at 6 at Trabuco Hills.

Bryce Alderton Newport Harbor High boys water polo team has a knack of providing suspenseful, thrilling matches this season and they provided one again Saturday, though unfortunately for the 19-10 Sailors, it wasn't meant to be.

LAKE FOREST — Seeing her older sister Nicolina McCall in a tight girls’ water polo match for Newport Harbor High, Colleen yearned to tell her one thing in the rain. She had to wait in the cold. Nicolina eventually gave Colleen the opportunity to speak up after 29 minutes, 13 seconds of battling more than the elements Friday night. McCall put away Laguna Beach, recording the game-winner in sudden-death overtime to lift the Sailors to a 10-9 victory and into the semifinals of the Irvine Southern California Championships.
