COSTA MESA — Corona del Mar High girls’ soccer coach Bryan Middleton was hoping to rely on his team’s depth so that he could rest key players in anticipation for an important weekend ahead. Some youth and experience helped answer the coach’s wishes. Freshman Scarlett Fallon and senior Lexi Hensen each scored goals to lead the Sea Kings to a 2-0 nonleague win over host Costa Mesa Tuesday. Natalie Remdonski, who was called up from the junior varsity team, made the most of her playing time and contributed to the win, Middleton said.

WALNUT — A tiebreaker in tennis seems simple enough. The first singles player or doubles team to seven points, win by two, takes the tiebreaker and the set. But rarely does a tiebreaker seem to mean so much, like it did for the Sage Hill School girls’ tennis team Tuesday in a CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinal match. The match-ending, 7-4 tiebreaker win for Walnut High seniors Elizabeth Yuen and Megan Corpuz was more like a heartbreaker. It enabled the host Mustangs to upset No. 2-seeded Sage Hill, 10-8, at Walnut High in an epic match that lasted nearly four hours.
