NEWPORT BEACH - The rivet-rattling roar of the home Newport Harbor High boys' basketball crowd was as resounding as the effort that inspired it Tuesday. But the collective groans of frustration down the stretch by Sailors' rooters served as a symphony of survival for top-seeded Westlake in the second round of the CIF Southern Section 2A playoffs. The underdog Sailors (14-14), coming off the program's first postseason victory in six seasons, nearly kept pace with the Warriors (24-4)

NEWPORT BEACH - After two matches in the young season, the Corona del Mar High boys' soccer team searched for its first win. Coach George Larsen said the team lacked energy in both contests. In the third match on the schedule, Larsen expected a turnaround. The Battle of the Bay always seems to bring out the best in the Sea Kings under Larsen. The Sea Kings traveled to Newport Harbor on Wednesday and they ran away with a 3-0 win in the rivalry match. "We just seemed like we woke up in general and it translated into a well-played game," said Larsen, who has led CdM to a 3-0-1 record against the Sailors in his four seasons in charge of the Sea Kings.

MANHATTAN BEACH - Leading up to Newport Harbor High's football game on Friday, Coach Jeff Brinkley said he talked to the opposing coach. Brinkley and Don Morrow, the coach at Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach, know each other well. Before their teams met for the ninth straight year, Morrow gave Brinkley some flattering words. Morrow watched the film of the Sailors' 28-7 upset win last week of San Clemente, a CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division finalist last year. "In terms of watching our film, he thought that was the game he said that really looked like our old Newport Harbor teams," Brinkley said.

San Clemente came into Friday's nonleague game ranked eighth in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division.
