SAN BERNARDINO - After the Ocean View Little League 12-year-old All-Star team defeated Napa National in Friday's semifinals of the Little League Baseball West Regional tournament in San Bernardino, Manager Tod Minato said that Williamsport, PA., home to the Little League World Series, felt as though it was "so far away" and a "long road" to get there. So true, but only one victory stood between Ocean View and reaching Little League Baseball utopia.   In Sunday’s regional championship game at Al Houghton Stadium, Ocean View held a one-run lead after three innings on Waipio, but the champions from Hawaii scored four runs in the top of the fourth and went on to earn a 4-1 victory to punch its ticket to Williamsport.

WESTMINSTER — For all the critical mistakes, the missed opportunities, the Ocean View High Seahawks somehow managed to find a way to still be in Thursday night's crucial Golden West League football game against Segerstrom. It's been the Seahawks' M.O. several times this season. Trailing, 29-8, with 5:44 remaining at Westminster High's Boswell Field, Ocean View scored two quick touchdowns, recovered two onside kicks and had the ball with a chance to score again in the closing seconds, but only succumbed when a fourth-down pass was batted down inside the Segerstrom 10-yard line on the game's final play.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Nothing went right for the Ocean View football team during the first half of Friday's Golden West League game against Westminster, and it was a long 24 minutes for the Seahawks.

Ocean View fell behind its neighboring rival by an insurmountable margin by halftime but played the Lions on even terms in the final 24 minutes. The effort wasn't enough to overcome a 40-point deficit, and it left the Seahawks saddled with a 54-14 loss in their homecoming game.

Playing a game of hide and seek with Saddleback High pitcher Danny Gonzales Friday, the Ocean View baseball team came up with some key hits and emerged the winner in a Golden West League clash. The big hit came from the bat of lead-off hitter James Kang, who provided the Seahawks with all the offense they would need. Kang belted a three-run home run in the bottom of the second inning, and Ocean View made those runs stand up for a 3-2 victory.
