LA HABRA - In a way it was a perfect run, a signature run that gave Estancia High senior Robert Murtha the Newport-Mesa career rushing record. He started to the right on Friday night at La Habra High, patiently waiting for just a moment before cutting back into the middle of the field. No one could catch him there. Fifty-two yards later, he was in the end zone midway through the second quarter. Estancia's three-year starter at running back now has 4,398 career yards. He has surpassed the 4,333 yards amassed by Costa Mesa's Binh Tran in the early 1990s.

COSTA MESA — Sonora Elementary proved at the Daily Pilot Cup that it's about quality, not quantity. The fifth- and sixth-grade Newport Elementary girls had 10 shot attempts and four untouched crosses in the goal area. Sonora had only four attempts, but two of them went in — including one in the last few possessions. Minutes later, the 12-girl squad that sometimes started only nine players celebrated a 2-1 win at the Costa Mesa Farm Complex and became the silver division champion.

About 100 Sonora Elementary School third- and fourth-graders paraded by their classmates Friday morning, slapping hands and receiving praise while Queen’s “We are the Champions” blared in the background. You’d think they just won some kind of local championship. Well, in fact, they did better than the rest of Orange County, but it wasn’t in sports. According to state Academic Performance Index scores released last week, Sonora Elementary’s 110-point leap in performance index scores topped the growth of any other elementary school in Orange County.

When Sonora Elementary students gathered for their annual holiday performance, they had a lot more to show off than just their angelic little voices. This year, all sorts of musical instruments shared the bill, thanks to a new offering at the school: Beginning Band, a class for older students. Dozens of Sonora kids had some of their first exposure to musical instruments as part of the class, faculty said. It was the first year of the program and a major success, school Principal Christine Anderson said.

Chris Yemma Most Daily Pilot Cup soccer matchups aren't about scores, stats and records, or who's better and who's worse. Winning and losing almost blend together at the end of the day, after the oranges have been consumed and the juice drinks sucked dry. There was no exception to the carefree bliss at Friday's third- and fourth-grade girls Silver division matchup between Pomona Elementary and Sonora. It was a game of learning the fundamentals, with the majority of the kids never playing the sport before.

Imagine a child dribbling a soccer ball down a picturesque grass field without a care in the world and effortlessly striking the ball into the goal and against the back of the net. The child is so ecstatic that he high-fives his teammates, screams "Goal!" and buries his face in his jersey while rolling around and collecting grass stains. Now imagine what it would be like to be a kid and not have the opportunity to embrace that experience. The eighth annual Daily Pilot Cup starts today and the children of one elementary school in particular are happy just to be able to have a chance to compete.
