GARDEN GROVE – Pacifica felt underappreciated by CIF pollsters going into its game against CIF-ranked Westminster on Friday.
After a dominating performance, the Mariners should be getting more attention in the Southwest Divi
TUSTIN – Just when it looked like Foothill might stage a second-half comeback, Canyon came through with a big fourth quarter to earn a 31-17 nonleague victory in a battle of Century Conference opponents Friday night at Tustin.
Canyon (3-2) sealed the victory over the Knights with two touchdowns in the final 5:14.
MISSION VIEJO – As if it weren’t appealing enough already, the South Coast League race just got that much more interesting Friday night.

After allowing the go-ahead score with 2:14 left, Sonor
SANTA ANA – The Killer Bees. That’s what they’re called, the Briseno brothers of Santa Ana High. It’s a nice nickname, though not entirely fitting, for bees strike only once, which is certainly not the case when discussing this duo.
Jonathan Briseno, the quarterback, struck five times and brother Jorge
MISSION VIEJO – In a matchup of two winless teams, something had to give, and on Friday night it was Los Amigos’ defense. Trabuco Hills quarterback Cooper Uhl tossed three touchdown passes, and running backs Chad Crosbie and Colby Rooker each added two more as the Mustangs defeated the Lobos, 56-16, at Tra

ORANGE – After scraping by on a late field goal last week, no one on Villa Park’s football team would be likely to tell you that its undefeated season has been perfect.
But Friday night’s effort might have been as close to perfection as the Spartans can get.
Nick Sipe led Villa Park’s high-octane at
