Bryce Alderton It was as simple as hide, appear, score. For Harbor View Elementary School's Sean Donovan, goals came in threes, helping seal a 5-1 victory over Davis in Pool C of the boys fifth- and sixth-grade soccer division in the fourth annual Daily Pilot Cup Wednesday at the Farm Sports Complex. "When the ball popped out toward the middle, I would hide behind a man, make my move and get on the breakaway," Donovan said of his strategy to space himself from Davis defenders, giving his teammates a chance to pass.

NEWPORT BEACH — Kaylee Schneekluth lifted her arms in celebration right after she shot the ball. The Edison High senior girls’ soccer player knew her third goal of the game, on a breakaway counterattack, was going right into the net after she got it past a diving goalie. On the other sideline, Newport Harbor Coach Larry Draluck normally would have been proud of Schneekluth. She plays on his under-18 club team for the Southern California Blues. But Tuesday at Newport Harbor High, Schneekluth’s hat trick instead meant blues for the Sailors.

Nelly the pig may soon give Babe a run for his money. Her owners call her the smartest pig in the world, and Wednesday she stole the show at the Livestock Area of the Orange County Fair. Nelly has been featured on Animal Planet, the “Today Show,” the “Late Show with David Letterman,” and various nightly news programs. Wednesday, she proved to be quite the athlete. With the aid of her catapult, she played catch with one of the audience members. She later used her snout to play golf, and to push a bowling ball into a cluster of pins.

St. Joachim School of Costa Mesa had its 5th annual "Trick or Trunk" Halloween event on October 30th. For this event , parts of the school’s parking lot were completely converted into an eerie Halloween setting and St. Joachim’s families had their cars and trunks decorated in a ghostly or funny Halloween fashion ready for all the little princesses, knights, monsters and pirates to come by to trick or treat. One funny eye catcher certainly was the “Lice Buster Bus” that offered treatment with the slogan “Take one. Pass it around.

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- Harbor View residents still horrified by Halloweens of 1999 and before are reenacting last year's efforts to avert problems in their popular trick-or-treat location. "My biggest concern is getting through Halloween night," Jill Money, board member of the Harbor View Homeowners Assn. said. "Last year, the police did an outstanding job. But before that, we had terrible vandalism, weapons -- it's been awful." The Harbor View area -- known best as the port streets bordered by MacArthur Boulevard, San Joaquin Hills and Old Ford roads and San Miguel Drive -- is unusually prone to trouble, said Newport Beach Police spokesman Sgt. Steve Shulman.

Jennifer K Mahal Amos Levkovitch lost his marbles for magic. Literally. A friend in third or fourth grade showed the Israeli-born magician an effect using apricot seeds. "He made them appear and disappear," Levkovitch said. "I gave him my marble collection and he taught me the trick. I don't remember how many [marbles], but it was the best ones." It's doubtful that the apricot seed trick will be performed tonight when Levkovitch and others take the stage at Orange Coast College as part of Dale Salwak's "Stars of Magic."

Chris Moya has arguably the best hair, the best nickname and the best shot on the Estancia High boys' soccer team. Coach Robert Castellano doesn't care much for the hair and nickname. As for the shot, it's special. With the shot comes the other two. Moya tends to run his fingers through his hair after he strikes the ball. Moya then hears teammates on the bench call him "The Beast. " Castellano just shakes his head when he hears anyone refer to a 5-foot-6 and 140-pound sophomore as "The Beast.

LOS ANGELES - Don't bring up the last time the Estancia High boys' soccer team won the CIF Southern Section title to Robert Castellano. He begrudgingly will thank you for reminding him. That special season 14 years ago can be a sensitive issue for him at times. He missed being a part of that section championship team because he graduated the year before the school won it all. Castellano never played for a section title, but he is now one win away from coaching the Eagles in one. As the coach, Castellano is in full control, always composed.

In the middle of 1,000 Orange County Girl Scouts at the Bren Events Center in Irvine on Saturday, about a dozen Daisies - those in kindergarten and first grade - crowded around a mock front door made out of cardboard. The girls, mostly 5 and 6 years old, were about to practice their pitch. "We're going to be showing you how to sell Girl Scout Cookies at someone's house," 11-year-old Isabelle Lindstrom said. She knocked on the faux door before leading the younger girls in a chorus of "hello" and quizzing them on what they'd say when asked about their favorite cookie.

Beware, the spooky season is upon us! Children often love to scare themselves silly, and this is the perfect time of the year for that fun. The hours of sunshine are fewer, the dark nights beginning much earlier.

MISSION VIEJO - One thing most people have noticed about Cleo Harrington is that she tends to play her best in the biggest moments. In 2011-12, she stepped in as a sophomore and helped the Newport Harbor High girls' water polo team win the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title. She helped the Sailors get back to that title match last year, earning Newport-Mesa Co-Player of the Year accolades in the process. In both years, the Sailors won the rugged Sunset League. But Thursday afternoon at Capistrano Valley High, in front of several top college coaches, Harrington perhaps showed just how much of an anchor she can be. The incoming Sailors senior made a career-high 23 saves, helping Newport Water Polo Foundation's 18-and-under girls blank United (Mater Dei)

"We are very pleased to welcome the Bluth banana stand and the Netflix 'Arrested Development' team to Newport Beach, the home of frozen bananas," Curry wrote.
