Newport Harbor High's girls basketball team didn't have a quarter where it scored in double figures and host Woodbridge High ran the Sailors out of the gym Thursday night, 69-25, in a Sea View League game. "Our girls were afraid of that red and gold, they just weren't ready to play (Thursday)," said Newport assistant Mike Kilkenny. "(Woodbridge) is very good at running the floor and they got a lot of second, third and fourth shots on an offensive set."

Chris Yemma With assistant coaches pacing both sidelines, the Newport Harbor High girls soccer team encountered a side of Woodbridge that hasn't been seen yet. It just happened to be the Sailors dumb luck that they ran into Woodbridge on a night when the Warriors played their best soccer all season. Under the floodlights at Alton Park, just across the street from Woodbridge High, Newport fell to the Warriors, 3-0, in a Sea View League game on a night when Woodbridge was playing like it was in the spotlight.

HUNTINGTON BEACH ? A little game-plan tinkering, never-wavering confidence and continued growth kept Sage Hill School a second-half team and undefeated in the Academy League. Senior running back Don Ayres brought the confidence, never doubting the youthful line that planted in three-point stances in front of him. In the second half, the line, made up entirely of first-year starters, showed it can fuel the offense like its predecessors did. And, Lightning Coach Tom Monarch changed the blocking scheme to allow for 154 yards rushing for Ayres and a 21-0 advantage in scoring in the second half, leading to Sage Hill's 35-21 league victory over Brethren Christian at Ocean View High Saturday.

IRVINE - As the reigning two-time champion of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division on the crest of a 16-game winning streak, the Corona del Mar High football team knows full well it will receive the best shot from any opponent, let alone a Pacific Coast League rival. But host Woodbridge nearly delivered a sucker punch to the Sea Kings on Friday, before CdM finally closed out a 14-7 triumph at University High. The Sea Kings (7-0, 2-0 in league), ranked No. 1 in the Southern Division and atop the Division III rankings for the State Bowl Game, dominated through three-plus quarters.

Debbie Candelaria made two free throws with 26 seconds left to give the Lions (12-8, 9-5 in the GSAC) a 63-62 lead. Westmont (14-8, 9-5) had a chance to take the lead, but the shot did not fall for the Warriors and Erin Edmiston sank one free throw with a second left to seal the win for Vanguard.

Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - The long wait is finally over. Newport Harbor High's girls soccer team can stake claim to victory over Woodbridge's Warriors, the defending Sea View League champions. "This is the first time we've beaten them in five years," Newport Harbor Coach Jason Sorrell said, after his team's dominating 2-0 league win over the Warriors under the lights Thursday at Newport Harbor. The Sailors tied Woodbridge last year and another time in 1999, when senior standouts Amy Ross and Tory Manchester were freshmen.

Barry Faulkner IRVINE - Some Newport Harbor High boys basketball fans showed up dressed for a barbecue Friday night at Woodbridge High. But it was the host Warriors who flame broiled the nylon nets during the pivotal stages of this battle for first place in the Sea View League. Woodbridge hit its first six third-quarter field-goal attempts to expand a five-point halftime cushion to a 14-point bulge, then held off a furious Harbor rally to claim a 65-51 verdict.

Richard Dunn LONG BEACH - You get spoiled winning, and playing on nice football fields. And, while Saturday night's nonleague encounter against host Brethren Christian High of Huntington Beach was played on something other than a field of dreams (St. Anthony's Clark Field), at least Coach Jerry Howell's Costa Mesa Mustangs could be remembered for a few things after their 55-14 victory. Among them: A multi-tiered rushing attack with Alvin Nguyen (154 yards on 10 carries)

Tony Altobelli TORRANCE - Orange Coast College's football team wraps up its season tonight in Torrance against El Camino with an opportunity to accomplish a lot of "firsts" for the Bucs and their players. A win for the Pirates (4-5, 2-2 in conference) over El Camino would be the first since 1973 over El Camino and would snap an 11-game losing streak to the Warriors. "We haven't beaten them since I've been here," Coach Mike Taylor said. "We've come close a couple of times, including a bowl game in 1990, but we haven't been able to knock them off."

A group of veterans and local activists urged the Orange County Fair Board on Thursday to build a memorial garden at the fairgrounds that would honor veterans and the property's military heritage. The garden would be an appropriate addition to the fairgrounds' planned veterans exhibit near the Centennial Farm, the group told the board, and provide a park-like meeting place for county veterans where they could grow their own food like the victory gardens of yore. The group added that the land would signify the fairgrounds' history as a 150-acre section of the 1,336-acre Santa Ana Army Air Base, a World War II facility that was decommissioned in 1946.

Nick Moghaddam still savors victory. But the former Newport Harbor High and Orange Coast College football standout turned mixed martial artist does not fight to have his hand raised. In many ways, he fights to show that he can in fact raise his hand. After a recurring shoulder injury ended his football career following his junior season at East Carolina, Moghaddam, then a 6-foot-4, 266-pound defensive lineman, drove home and immediately spent more than $600 of his remaining $700 to join a mixed martial arts gym and purchase equipment to try his hand at fighting.

They form an unlikely crew. A 25-year cop. The high school principal. The retired geologist. The software, real estate and oil guys. Six men in their 60s will embark this summer on a cross-country journey on road bikes, covering 3,667 miles toward a common goal: raising awareness - and $50,000 - for the Wounded Warrior Project. Dale Lawrence, 66, Pat Cavanagh, 64, Jim Webber, 66, Darryl Miller, 65, Tom Nelson, 66, and Ed DeMar, 67, all of Irvine, plan to ride 70 to 80 miles each day of the two-month journey.

NEWPORT BEACH - The rivet-rattling roar of the home Newport Harbor High boys' basketball crowd was as resounding as the effort that inspired it Tuesday. But the collective groans of frustration down the stretch by Sailors' rooters served as a symphony of survival for top-seeded Westlake in the second round of the CIF Southern Section 2A playoffs. The underdog Sailors (14-14), coming off the program's first postseason victory in six seasons, nearly kept pace with the Warriors (24-4)

CORONA DEL MAR - Max Stone is the kind of basketball player who can come off the bench and drain a three-pointer on his first shot. That is exactly what the junior did Tuesday, as he opened the second quarter for Corona del Mar High with a three. Coach Ryan Schachter calls Stone his best outside threat, so he expects Stone to shoot whenever he is open. Stone passed up quality looks in the second, third and fourth quarters, only to frustrate his coach. Schachter needed someone to stop Woodbridge's fourth-quarter run, which gave the visitors their first lead since the opening quarter.

Woodbridge High has developed a reputation of success in cross country, but this season both the boys' and girl's teams are exceeding the expectations of many, including those of their coach. Warriors Coach George Varvas believes in his team and knows each of his runner's capabilities. But even he had to pinch himself after the Pacific Coast League finals at Irvine Regional Park Nov. 4. Woodbridge not only swept both the boys' and girls' team titles, but they set school records with their times - the boys running the three-mile course in a combined 76 minutes, 3 seconds and the girls in 86:28.

Last November, the story of a Marine who ran from Florida to Texas carrying the American flag to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project touched me. The WWP is a nonprofit that helps physically and psychologically injured soldiers readjust to their civilian lives back home. The Marine's story was a calling for me to participate. Later, while driving down Coast Highway in Corona Del Mar, I felt guilty for how wonderful life is for all of us here and how often we forget about the sacrifices that our soldiers and Marines make for us. The day-to-day issues that we may struggle with are trivial in comparison with what our servicemen and women struggle with after ending their tours of duty.
