COSTA MESA — There wasn’t much suspense for the first three quarters of Thursday night’s matchup between Marina and Huntington Beach but the ending, well, it gave a whole new look to the game. Marina bolted to a two-touchdown lead on the Oilers, increased the advantage to 21 points in the third quarter, but then watched Huntington storm back only to fall a yard shy of keeping alive a potential score-tying drive late in the game. The Vikings hung on for a 21-14 nonleague victory at Orange Coast College.

It wasn’t quite Friday Night Lights — it was a Thursday game, after all — but the feeling was still the same for Harold Eggers. Ocean View High’s new, yet not-so-new, football coach found out that you could come home again — yes, even for a third time — when he began his most recent stint in charge of the Seahawks program Sept. 11 against Calvary Chapel of Santa Ana at Orange Coast College. The setting, he said, was perfect for his return.

Over the last 15 years, Scott Broberg has taken more than 20,000 photographs. Five years ago, while sifting through his work, he noticed patterns — some natural, others caused by tricks of the camera — but all somehow having a twin in their configuration with another photo in his collection. Broberg, the film and video department coordinator at Orange Coast College, says he noticed how a photo of a set of train tracks meandering along the industrial banks of Chicago mirrored another shot of a river curving through a Midwest countryside.
