COSTA MESA - The College Park Elementary boys' third- and fourth-grade silver division team came out scoring with ease from the start of the whistle. A hat trick from forward John Paul Bottazzi helped College Park defeat Mariners Christian, 8-0, in the championship game at the Daily Pilot Cup Sunday afternoon at Jack Hammett Sports Complex. "Once I knew I had two goals I wanted another one and when I got it I was happy," Bottazzi said of his hat trick. The Cougars came out aggressive, and it showed.

COSTA MESA - While observing just how young some players are at the 13th annual Daily Pilot Cup, one would only need to watch Aidan Gassel complete his hat trick. After he dribbled past a drawn-out goalie, the Newport Elementary forward had the goal all to himself. But his black headband was slipping off the top of his head. So in the 29th minute, Gassel adjusted it during his run, while continuing to dribble, and scored easily. One wouldn't really imagine a professional player like L.A. Galaxy forward Landon Donovan doing that.

COSTA MESA - Last year, the Kaiser Elementary girls' third- and fourth-grade gold division team won the championship at the Daily Pilot Cup, the school's first title at the annual tournament in nine years. Kaiser would like to again be successful in the division this year, but Coach Jayme Amirie knows other teams in the division don't necessarily feel the same way toward his squad. Nor do they care that this year's Kaiser team has just one returner from last year's title team - Amirie's daughter, Jasmine.

Michael Keasey's final goal as a member of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team meant a lot to him, his teammates and his coach. The goal proved to be the game-winner, allowing the Sea Kings to claim their first U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section title last week. Keasey and the Sea Kings played for more than their school during a 7-6 win against Palos Verdes that day. They played for Coach George Warren Mix's father, George Warren "Moose" Mix Sr., who passed away at 74 of heart failure on May 4, eight days before CdM completed its historic season.

Seeking to get your spook on this Sunday? For many locals, the best (and most cost effective) way to get into the Halloween spirit each year is at the 14th annual Trick or Treat Festival at the Orange County Market Place, which offers copious quantities of candy, costume contests, chilling shows and silly spectacles. A favorite element of the day for many is the 12th annual Halloween Hearse Procession and Show, which will feature more than 50 spooky vehicles, including hearses and funeral coaches, limousines, souped-up Cadillacs and ambulances.

COSTA MESA — A woman asked the boys from Mariners Elementary's team to line up for a photo before they stepped on the soccer field. Sunday was going to mark the last time the sixth-graders played together at the Daily Pilot Cup. One player did not want to be a part of the photo. "We'll get a picture when we win," he told the woman with the camera. That is how confident Mariners went into the fifth- and sixth-grade gold division title match against Whittier. Keep in mind, Mariners had never won the gold division at the tournament, boys or girls.

COSTA MESA — Yaritza Garcia's booming kicks are always useful for the Sonora Elementary girls' fifth- and sixth-grade silver division team at the Daily Pilot Cup. Garcia plays on defense, and those kicks can get the Eagles out of danger. But on set pieces, her right foot itself turns dangerous. Garcia had a hat trick Thursday evening as Sonora blanked Wilson, 4-0, in its tournament-opening game at Davis Elementary. The Eagles have big plans after winning the fifth- and sixth-grade girls' bronze division title last year.

Question: It's amazing how you "learned theologians" always toe the party line: God is always responsible for the good things that happen, but good gosh, never responsible for the bad things because of "free will. " And God doesn't make garbage. Bunk. Hitler, Bin Laden and too many more names to fit on the page are all bad because of their environment? When a product is junk, you blame the manufacturer. I'd have more respect for you guys if you'd say God can and has been a screw-up, instead of the way you all tap dance around very valid questions with that "free will" nonsense.

Accused of impersonating a G-Man, a Seal Beach woman met real FBI agents Thursday when they arrested her at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, authorities said. Karen Hanover, 44, was arrested without incident two days after federal prosecutors charged her in a Santa Ana federal court with using special technology to mask her phone number and disguise her voice so she could scare people into thinking she was a federal agent. The criminal complaint accuses Hanover of targeting people at real estate education seminars to pay her a $30,000 "fee" to help them find commercial properties to buy. Hanover spent all of her time allegedly finding new investors to swindle out of their money instead of actually finding property, something she wasn't qualified to do anyway, prosecutors claim.

NEWPORT BEACH — At the other end of the Newport Harbor High pool, Coach Bill Barnett heard a familiar voice. Doug Peabody, a coach at The Bishop's School of La Jolla, was sitting on a bench and yelling Saturday. You could have heard his booming voice across campus. "I've known Bill since I was in high school and I'm 47," said Peabody, who marvels at the job Barnett does at Newport Harbor, where he has coached for 45 years. Peabody said not much has changed about Barnett over the years.
