The West Huntington Beach Oilers bounced back from their first loss of the season by rallying past the Newport-Mesa Knicks, 44-31, in a boys Division I National Junior Basketball game at Costa Mesa High. Trailing by four points at the half, the Oilers outscored the Knicks, 30-13, to win going away. The victory also atoned for last week's loss to the Newport-Mesa Lakers, as West Huntington Bach ran its record to 5-1 overall. The ball handling of cousins Jonathan and Trevor Schuesler set up numerous inside scoring opportunities for the Oilers, who received 15 points from Chris Potrykus and 14 from Tim Hoffman, who led the team in scoring.

Ten times this season the Huntington Beach Jr. Pee Wee Division Green Chargers have come up with a ferocious effort, and each has seemed more impressive than the previous. Saturday in Pop Warner Football postseason play, the Green Chargers whipped the Santa Margarita Red Titans, 33-0. The victory was the 10th by a shutout this year for undefeated Huntington (10-0), which now moves on to a second-round playoff game Saturday against Norwalk at 9 a.m. at Costa Mesa High. A 42-yard scoring run by Robert Rice, followed by a 75-yard TD run by Trevor Borkowski, began the scoring for Huntington, and the league's stingiest defense took over from there.

The word "rebuilding" commonly has a negative connotation attached to it, but first-year Costa Mesa High boys cross country coach Daniel Gonzalez doesn't see it that way. He sees both what the future holds for his team and the present. And a successful future means a successful present. "We have a very young but talented team," said Gonzalez, who was named both the girls and boys coach at Costa Mesa in May. "We need to have big success this year for bigger goals for the following year."

Out of the 25 girls in the Costa Mesa High girls golf program, 18 have never touched a golf club before. So first-year coach Tom Baldwin, who is serving as the head girls golf coach for the first time after being the school's football coach last year, has his work cut out for him. Baldwin enlisted former coach and old friend John Clurry as his assistant. "I don't expect to win it all, but I don't expect to come in last," said Clury. Clury met Baldwin when he was 10 years old and played football for him at Santa Ana Valley High.

The Costa Mesa High football team lost its Golden West League opener last week, but the Mustangs may have gained their offensive identity. Coach Jay Johnson's squad (0-5, 0-1 in league) will try to assert its newfound offensive confidence Friday against visiting Westminster, at 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College. Mesa, decimated by early injuries, had struggled mightily for the first 4 1/2 games of the season, scoring just three offensive touchdowns in its first 18 quarters.

Costa Mesa High's boys water polo team played a decent first half Tuesday. Then, it turned the third period into shooting practice as if Santa Ana wasn't even in the pool. The Mustangs scored the first two goals of the match in opening 44 seconds by senior Kyle Thorsness on assists from Sam Edman and Nick Fisk as Mesa coasted to a 20-9 Golden West League win. Later in the first period, Thorsness added two additional goals. Santa Ana, down 4-0, scored its first goal at 1:45.

In the freshman Battle for the Bell, one side rang proudly and loudly; the other side, more of an awkward clang. Costa Mesa High's tandem of Tony Johnson and Dakota Lambert accounted for six Mustang scores and dominated the field in Thursday's 48-6 Golden West League opener over Estancia. Johnson, the Mustang quarterback, scored on runs of 42 and 19 yards and completed his only pass 62 yards for a score in the third quarter. Lambert scored on two runs of 2 yards each, and returned a punt 75 yards to tally 18 of Mesa's points.

The early season struggles of football teams from Costa Mesa High and Estancia have mirrored one another. So, as the two crosstown and Golden West League rivals prepare to collide Friday at 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College, the only mirror either is interested in is the one that reflects a rear view. "Somebody has got to win," Estancia Coach Brian Barnes said of the 39th edition of the Battle for the Bell. Costa Mesa, which has seen its top two quarterbacks and a returning all-league tailback go down with injuries, enters the league opener 0-4. The Mustangs have lost six straight, including an 18-13 setback to Estancia in the regular-season finale last fall.
