COSTA MESA — When it comes to winning Daily Pilot Cup trophies, a group of talented soccer players from Harbor Day School is now two-for-two. The players made sure of that Sunday afternoon at the Farm Sports Complex with a big team effort. Harbor Day got goals from four different players, capturing the boys' third- and fourth-grade gold division championship with a 4-1 victory over Whittier. The game was a rematch of sorts, as Harbor Day won last year's third- and fourth-grade silver division title over Whittier, 6-0. Harbor Day played with virtually the same roster this year and the kids, now all fourth graders, again stepped up to the challenge.

Oscar Davila cried along with many of his teammates Sunday afternoon at the Costa Mesa Farm Sports Complex. He had just drained all his effort during the boys' fifth- and sixth-grade gold division championship game of the Daily Pilot Cup. The Whittier Elementary sixth-grader was one of the best players on the field, a quick forward battling against Mariners. He served up a perfect pass, an assist for one of Whittier's two goals in the 4-2 loss. Oscar would rather not be treated differently or singled out, especially in a loss.

COSTA MESA — Newport Coast Elementary Coach Ramzi Ammari has the rarest of rosters for the fifth- and sixth-grade girls' silver division in the Daily Pilot Cup youth soccer tournament. In the Coyotes' tournament-opening 2-0 victory over Whittier on Thursday at Davis Elementary, they displayed depth, balance, passion, unselfishness and organization. But after completely dominating the pace of the game and amassing a 21-2 advantage in saves, there is at least one area of concern for Ammari as his team moves ahead: "The goalkeeper position is probably the most challenging to fill," said Ammari, who praised the heart and Johna Zahed, who made one save but faced her greatest challenge trying to stay entertained while the ball remained at the other end of the field virtually the entire game.

COSTA MESA - A bunch of third- and fourth-graders from Whittier Elementary School weren't so much worried about winning. The boys wanted to know how many goals they needed to win by on Wednesday to keep their quarterfinal hopes alive. "Four!" Coach Danny Gonzalez told his players before they played their second match at the 14th annual Daily Pilot Cup soccer tournament. Whittier's gold division opener the day before put it in a precarious situation. The team's 5-1 setback to Pegasus in pool-play action forced Whittier to play catch up on Wednesday.

The Newport-Mesa School District board extended military leave Tuesday night for a Corona del Mar High School teacher serving in the Air Force Reserve. Gary Mathieson, a physical education teacher, has been on and off campus since 2011, splitting time between teaching and deployment, Principal Tim Bryan said. Mathieson will be back on campus Monday, according to district spokeswoman Laura Boss, but he would have exhausted his 180 days of military leave when he redeploys. The Newport-Mesa Federation of Teachers requested an extra 180 days, and the school board granted it. As part of the leave, Newport-Mesa makes up the difference between Mathieson's military pay and what he would be making while teaching.

A Costa Mesa law school hopes to ease the stress on the California court system, which has suffered severe budget cuts, by offering its newly christened practice courtroom on campus for official legal proceedings. In response to belt-tightening within the state's legal system, Whittier Law School plans to invite authentic trials and arbitration to its facility. Such a setup would benefit students, as well, allowing them to observe the proceedings in the school's fully functioning 4,400-square-foot courtroom, which opened this month.
