Roger Carlson We have Sea Kings, as in Corona del Mar; Eagles, as in Estancia; Mustangs, as in Costa Mesa, and Pirates, or Bucs (Buccaneers), for Orange Coast College. But for Newport Harbor High's Sailors ... well, the Long Gray Line is also filled with Tars, and for some reason, not just a few, but many, even who hail from Newport Harbor in these days approaching the third millennium, just don't get it. "What's a Tar?" once again graced my answering system today.

Thursday night was a different story, as senior Taylor Cordeiro scored in the first half off an assist from sophomore Jane Layton.

Newport Harbor High senior long snapper Colin Duffy will be a preferred walk-on football player at Duke University, said Sailors Coach Jeff Brinkley on Thursday. Duffy, considered one of the top high school long snappers in California, helped Newport Harbor (8-6, 3-2 in Sunset League) reach the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division championship game. The section finals appearance was the Sailors' first in eight years and eighth overall in Brinkley's 28 years at the school.

Davis, who came in averaging 19.1 points and 15.3 rebounds per game, had four points and 11 rebounds through three quarters, after which his Eagles trailed, 31-26.

NEWPORT BEACH - Rudy Reyes began the celebration at home a tad early, yelling, "Yeaaaahhhh!" from just outside of his goal. The goalkeeper believed Newport Harbor High's match against Estancia was over when the referee blew his whistle. It wasn't, as the ref called a foul, but Reyes was really the one who ended the Eagles' undefeated start to the season. The senior stopped everything the Eagles kicked or headed his way, helping the Sailors shut out Estancia, 2-0, in a nonleague match on Wednesday.
