Rick Devereux Quite possibly the goal of the entire Daily Pilot Cup occurred during Our Lady Queen of Angels' 3-0 girls fifth- and sixth-grade gold quarterfinal victory over St. John Saturday at the Costa Mesa Sports Farm Complex. Marta Tena booted the ball from about 40 yards out. The ball sailed over everyone's head and into the upper-right corner of the net to give Our Lady the victory and advance the team to today's semifinal against Carden Hall at 9 a.m. "Marta was probably aiming to serve the ball into the box as a pass, because she is such an unselfish type of player," Coach John Carvelli said.

Barry Faulkner Though Katie Roche is one of three captains, her place as the Costa Mesa High girls soccer team's dominant leader is not open for discussion. Discussion, you see, would require something other than a monologue, which the junior sweeper consistently maintains in an attempt to help her team reach the playoffs for the first time in the program's history. "I've always been a leader on all my teams," said the three-sport athlete, who swims and plays volleyball merely as sidelights to a year-round passion for soccer.

One of them made controlling the midfield look effortless, speeding past the opposition to set up scoring chances for herself and others. One of them offered invaluable leadership in the back as a sweeper, as well as booming free kicks that also set up scoring chances. Without Annie Alvarado and Sydney Raguse, the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer team doesn't have its most successful year in Coach Bryan Middleton's 10-year tenure. Having them on the Newport-Mesa Dream Team was a no-brainer.

Having lived as a renter in Corona del Mar for six years, I have been accustomed to waiting for the Tuesday, Wednesday street sweeper to pass by and then move my car to the opposite side of Fourth Avenue. This is what happened on Wednesday, June 29. I, in fact, waved to the sweeper driver. I came out an hour later to find a ticket on my car for the heinous crime of hindering the sweeper's duties. The tracks and the water from the sweeper were beneath my car. Remember that I, and many others, have followed this pattern for five years at the least, without ever getting a ticket.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO — "Hey Jake, you OK?" Sage Hill School boys' soccer coach Noureddine El Alam asked goalie Jake Blitzer. Blitzer had just dived for a save early in the second half of the Lightning's 1-0 win at rival St. Margaret's Friday. He gave the thumbs up sign to his coach, who nevertheless asked the same question again a few moments later. "Yeah," Blitzer said confidently. He had reason to be. Friday's win marked the ninth straight shutout for the unbeaten Lightning (10-0-2, 7-0 in the Academy League)
