Jim Riggio MOYSE FIELD -- For 48 minutes, Loyola and Los Alamitos highs played as tough as two football teams could, and neither team was willing to walk off the field as the losing team. So the game had to go overtime, where the Griffins outlasted the Cubs, 30-23, in two tie-breakers before a near sold-out crowd Friday night in a CIF Southern Section Division I quarterfinal game at Moyse Field. Los Alamitos kicker Chris Kluwe kicked a 60-yard field goal with no time left on the clock to send the game into overtime.

Newport Harbor High's girls tennis team fell, 11-7, in nonleague play to one of Orange County's best tennis squads, Los Alamitos. The Sailors lost five of six sets in the opening round, and could not overcome the deficit. "I was impressed with our girls," said Sailor Coach Fletcher Olson. "After we dropped far behind in the first set, the girls really turned it around in the second and third sets." Newport won five of nine doubles sets. Melissa Chinn and Alex McIntosh had the most impressive match, rallying from 4-5 to a 7-5 victory in their opening match.

Erik Boal When Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy met Los Alamitos in last year's quarterfinal match of the Molten/Gahr Volleyball Classic, the Tologs lost in four hard-fought games. But the setback proved to Flintridge Sacred Heart that it could compete with the best programs in the state, as evidenced by Los Alamitos going on to win the CIF Southern Section Division IAA title. So when Nancy Tinkham's squad earned a rematch against the nationally ranked Griffins in Saturday's quarterfinal of the seventh annual event at Cerritos Gahr High, she was hoping her team -- which graduated five key contributors from last year's Division IVAA finalist -- would put up a similar fight.

Desiree Shier considers the windows of her home to be the eyes of the structure, so when she and husband Al Shier bought the property as somewhat of a fixer-upper last summer, the glass was the first thing to get a makeover. But the Shiers, who plan to restore their 1928 home to its original architectural state, weren?t looking for just any window replacements. Their search was for a contractor who specializes in historic windows, which led to Window Restoration and Repair, a Los Alamitos company that recreates and refurbishes old frames, casings and accessories for residential windows.
