Week Zero meant more than one zero to the Estancia High football team last year when it arrived at the game. At game time, it was still 100 degrees. The Eagles got to their first game in collared shirts, ties and pants, pregame attire four hours before kickoff. No shirts and shorts seemed more appropriate. “That took so much out of us that I refused to play in [San Bernardino], or anywhere it’s 100 degrees at the start,” said Coach Mike Bargas, referring to last season’s opener at Aquinas.

COSTA MESA — The fire alarm flashed before the football game started at Estancia High. No one figured a way to turn it off. The Eagles obviously played with fire in their season opener. Trabuco Hills, ranked No. 5 in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division preseason coaches’ poll, proved to be too dangerous. Estancia complained about the 100-degree heat in last year’s opener on the road. This year at home, not enough help. No one came to the rescue as the Mustangs stomped their way to a 42-7 nonleague victory at Jim Scott Stadium Thursday night.

CORONA DEL MAR - In quite a few boys' volleyball matches this season, Corona del Mar High has relied quite heavily on outside hitter Parker Brown and middle blocker Jack Reed. While that was also the case in Saturday night's 25-19, 25-23, 25-19 CIF Southern Section Division 2 quarterfinal win over Trabuco Hills at CdM, it took a total team effort during the most crucial moments. And that team effort will take the Sea Kings to another home match, a semifinal showdown at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

Newport Harbor's explosive victory over highly regarded Marina last week lends credibility to the notion the Sailors' "slow" start in a scrimmage with Mission Viejo and a 16-8 loss in the season opener against Trabuco Hills speaks more to the quality of the competition than the lack of savvy in the Sailors' game. Dartagnan Johnson ran for 206 yards and three TDs on 23 carries last year in this game. Newport Harbor, despite its season-opening loss at Trabuco Hills, is ranked No. 3 in CIF Division VI. Quarterback Michael McDonald could hold the key to success for the Sailors.

She has seen the players put in the work. But that work ended suddenly Tuesday afternoon at CdM.

NEWPORT BEACH - The start to Coach Jeff Brinkley's 27th year at Newport Harbor High didn't go as planned. On a night Brinkley tried to reach a coaching milestone, he made history for a different kind of reason. The Sailors kicked off the season with a 27-21 loss at home to Trabuco Hills on Thursday, marking the first time they have dropped consecutive season openers under Brinkley. The same team that beat the Sailors last year did so again at the start of this year. Brinkley will have to wait another week for a shot to move all alone into the fifth spot when it comes to career wins as a coach in Orange County.

Sierra Michaelsen took up kenpo-style karate in October. She's an orange belt. But her time in the dojo is currently on hiatus as she focuses on a more pressing matter, her senior year for the Newport Harbor High girls' lacrosse team. "Right before I left I was going to reach the intermediate level," Michaelsen said. "I get to wait until the summer now. " She doesn't mind the break. She wants the Sailors, who play Corona del Mar in the Battle of the Bay Friday night at 5 at Newport Harbor, to extend their season as long as possible.
