CYPRESS — A two-game deficit didn’t seem so much like an incredible challenge to overcome for the Corona del Mar High girls’ volleyball team just this past Tuesday. But this was Saturday at Cypress College against top-seeded Redlands East Valley. This time the hole proved too deep to climb out of, as the Wildcats captured its second straight CIF Southern Section Division II-AA title with a 25-16, 25-20, 25-14 victory. The Sea Kings (21-8) appeared as if they could make a match of it, late in the second game.

The Costa Mesa High football team was forced to play catch-up early in its season opener Friday night against host Brea Olinda. The Mustangs also tried to catch their breath from chasing Brea receivers, tailbacks and tight ends for most of the evening. The beginning of the Jay Johnson era began auspiciously for the Mustangs, with a fumble on the first play of the contest, one of four turnovers committed by the visitors. Brea, meanwhile, motored like a well-oiled machine, amassing 414 yards of offense and sending the Mustangs to a 30-0 setback.

REDLANDS — In less than two hours Corona del Mar High arrived to a dim gymnasium. Players saw their own shadows on the volleyball court. The Sea Kings looked like they were in the dark once play began Tuesday night. Playing Redlands East Valley for the second time in 11 days can have that effect. The Wildcats quickly sent the Sea Kings home, advancing to the CIF State Division II championship with a 25-17, 25-15, 25-13 victory in the Southern California Regional final.

COSTA MESA ? The line of red jerseys weaved its way up and out of the stadium. Hardly a word was muttered along the way. And, as the Estancia High football team awaited the bus that would take the Eagles back to school, not a word was said among the players. Everything that needed to be said had already been told on the field. West Ranch, a school in its first season with a varsity football team, came down from Santa Clarita, broke through tackles, busted up blocks and ran its way to a 32-7 nonleague victory at Orange Coast College Friday to snap the Eagles' three-game winning streak.

Regret, runner-up and deja vu might be those words that would trigger sadness for the Sea Kings. Yet, the most dangerous words would actually be a name: Krista Vansant. The 6-foot-2 junior outside hitter pounded 22 kills to hold off CdM and lead Redlands East Valley to a third straight championship in CIF Southern Section Division II-AA Saturday at Cypress College.

COSTA MESA - There are two parts to Wilson Elementary Coach Eddie Ceja's game plan. The first: Get the lead. The second: Defend said lead. One proved easier than the other in the Daily Pilot Cup youth soccer tournament's boys' fifth- and sixth-grade gold division final Sunday at the Jack Hammett Sports Complex. But Ceja's Wildcats managed to achieve both, defeating Newport Heights, 2-1, to claim the school's first title in this division. The win avenged a 3-2 loss to Newport Heights in Tuesday's pool-play opener and capped a wild two-game day for the Wildcats, who won their semifinal, 6-4, earlier Sunday against Harbor Day. Wilson came out blasting in the final as Rafael Espinoza, Miguel Peña and Rafael Leyva consistently worked their way past, around and through the Newport Heights defense to help produce an 11-1 shot advantage through the first 25-minute half.

Just so her teachers know, a dog didn't eat Claire Novotny's homework. But in the event that the Sage Hill School sophomore comes up a little short in the classroom on Thursday, some would suggest she has an iron-clad alibi. Novotny fired in a booming shot from 31 yards out into the upper corner of the net to lift the Lightning girls' soccer team to a 1-0 overtime victory over visiting Paloma Valley in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoffs on Wednesday.

CERRITOS — Lightning can strike quickly out of the Wildcat formation. Sage Hill School senior Taylor Ross proved it at Valley Christian High on Friday night. Ross, normally a running back, had fun lining up in the quarterback position in the second half. Fairmont Prep had less fun trying to stop him. Ross rushed for 250 yards and scored all three touchdowns to help lead the Lightning to a 20-13 nonleague victory in the season opener for both schools. Coach J.R. Tolver said before the season a primary goal was to get Ross the ball.

Super then repaid Dean with three assists and Dean was off to a solid 11-point, 11-rebound game despite playing limited minutes, as the Heat rested their starters as much as possible.
