CORONA DEL MAR - Corona del Mar High's girls water polo team limited Villa Park's offense. But the Spartans, ranked No. 4 in CIF Southern Section Division I, completely shut down the host Sea Kings' offense for a 3-1 win in the Irvine Southern California Championships Friday. CdM, 13-10 and ranked No. 4 in Division IV, will face Canyon in the 13th place semifinal at Irvine, 9 a.m. Except for UCLA-bound two-meter player Krystan Pulver, who scored twice in the second half, Villa Park (17-5)

Barry Faulkner NEWPORT BEACH - The formula is simple. Executing Coach Jeff Brinkley's not-so-secrets to success, however, can be somewhat more difficult when played out on the fading, dew-covered grass of late November, rather than the comfort of a locker room chalk talk. The Sailors, however, are sticking to the plan -- run the ball, take care of the ball and stop the run -- this season and the results have been, well, almost perfect. The equation produced a 35-16 victory over visiting Villa Park Friday night in the CIF Southern Section Division VI quarterfinals.

CORONA DEL MAR — On the schedule, the matchup appeared merely as a first-round home game against Villa Park in the Beach Pit Classic. But for the Corona del Mar High baseball team, the game meant so much more. Here was the Sea Kings’ chance to prove their resiliency. CdM Coach John Emme was interested to see how his players would respond from such a disappointing loss Thursday. The Sea Kings answered a crushing loss just the way Emme wanted, with a sound performance and a 3-1 victory Saturday at CdM. There wasn’t much to say after the Sea Kings lost, 6-5, in eight innings to visiting Beckman, the defending Pacific Coast League champion that is ranked No. 1 in the CIF Southern Section Division III coaches’ poll.

ORANGE — Recently during a pro football game, Coach Dick Freeman heard something that struck a chord. How do you handle playing two quarterbacks? Corona del Mar High began the year with its quarterbacks splitting time, but that changed as fast as Freeman changed the channel. “If you’ve got two quarterbacks it means you don’t have one,” said Freeman, taking the announcer’s advice to heart. “You can’t keep switching back.” The Sea Kings might have to after losing to a once winless program and seeing their offense sputter.

GOLETA — “No, no, no, no,” Newport Harbor High girls’ water polo coach Bill Barnett said to senior goalie Morgan Vickers midway through the Sailors’ first-round game at the Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions on Friday. Vickers had just made an apparently not-Barnett-approved pass in the middle of the pool to sophomore teammate Kate Klippert. But she was quick with a counter to her coach, reminding him that at least the pass was technically sound.

For Corona del Mar High (2-4), last week’s 21-6 loss to Villa Park laid bare some issues that must be corrected for the Sea Kings to be competitive when Pacific Coast League play begins against Beckman this week. The Spartans’ victory — Villa Park was winless this season before Friday, and lost all but one game last season in Century League play — marked the third time this season that CdM has scored only once during a contest. The Sea Kings’ running game has been hot and cold, and while JD Abbott, Tyler Harmon, and Austin Raiger did well against South El Monte, the trio was limited to just 45 yards rushing against the Spartans.

Newport Beach posted Orange County's highest increase in assessed property values this year, according to the Orange County assessor's office, which recently released its 2013-14 Local Assessment Roll of Values . The 5.21% increase from the city's 2012-13 values was attributable in part to "investments we have made in our infrastructure, harbor and public facilities," Mayor Keith Curry said in a statement. "Our leadership in assessed valuation growth shows that Newport Beach continues to be among the most financially strong, desirable and vibrant cities in America," he said.

BUENA PARK - Bob Torribio teaches history at Newport Harbor High. But in this his first season as the Sailors' boys' basketball coach, he is interested in rewriting his program's recent history. Coming off four straight losing seasons, Torribio's Sailors forged a 4-0 start, the program's best since the 2005-06 season. But that run came to and end in a 78-63 loss to Villa Park in the championship game of the Coyote Classic on Saturday at Buena Park High. Now, Torribio is hoping recent history does not repeat itself.

BUENA PARK - As it will nearly all season, the Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team towered over its opponent Friday night. But while the presence of 7-foot senior Kevin Rakestraw continues to elevate the Sailors' game, their 70-50 triumph over host Buena Park in the semifinals of the Coyote Classic, showed they also have a level of competence well below the rim. The Sailors not only stayed with the frenetic pace prompted by the smaller, feisty...

The Corona del Mar High football team shined defensively in its 26-0 victory over Los Amigos in a CIF Southern Section Southern Division quarterfinal game at Bolsa Grande High. The top-seeded Sea Kings, the defending CIF champions who play Woodbridge in the semifinals Friday night at Irvine High, allowed the Lobos to get into the red zone just once all game. It happened on Los Amigos' second drive of the game. But on third-and-seven at the CdM nine-yard line, the snap was fumbled and CdM sophomore Hoyt Crance recovered the ball.

ORANGE - Newport Harbor High ran out of its comeback magic on the football field. In five of their seven victories this year, the Sailors rallied each time in the second half. The problem was that Newport Harbor met a team Friday that had done the same thing a handful of times in the fourth quarter, coming back to win. What third-seeded Villa Park pulled off, a 26-21 victory in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs, stunned the Sailors. They really had a hard time coming to grips with losing a game in which the Sailors led by two scores with a little more than nine minutes left to play.

Predicting high school football games isn't as easy as it looks. Before the CIF Southern Section playoffs began last week, I thought the three local teams were sure winners. I don't always go with the teams in our coverage area because they're local. Just ask the five football coaches in the area. But I had Corona del Mar and Estancia penciled in to play each other in the Southern Division quarterfinals. The matchup, featuring CdM's no-huddle attack and Estancia's physical ground game, would've been great to cover.

SAN CLEMENTE — Corona del Mar High can add another CIF Southern Section championship banner inside its gym full with section titles. The latest will be for boys' golf. The Sea Kings' perfect season keeps getting sweeter as they claimed the CIF Southern Section South Coast Team Divisional title on Monday, shooting a three-over-par 363 at Talega Golf Club. Coach Mike Starkweather said the section crown is the boys' golf program's first since 1967. "When you look at the gym at Corona del Mar, where they don't acknowledge league championships like they do at most high schools, you can only get a banner up for winning a section, state or national championship," Starkweather said.
