A rivalry between two of Orange County's most successful prep football programs continues Friday when Edison takes on Mater Dei in nonleague play. The Chargers will face the host Monarchs in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at Cal State Fullerton. Edison comes into the matchup on a three-game winning streak.

SANTA ANA - The final 66-47 margin might suggest Wednesday's opening-round contest of the Southern California Regional of the CIF State Division I Basketball Championships was just another walkover for top-seeded host Mater Dei High in its march toward a ninth state crown. But for over three quarters, the upstart underdog Crescenta Valley Falcons were very much a bee in the Monarchs' bonnet rather than a bug on their windshield. Crescenta Valley overcame an early double-digit deficit to trail by just six at halftime, actually took a lead ever so briefly in the third quarter and entered the fourth still within striking distance, down by eight.

Charles Rich NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Their winning tradition practically parallels to the New York Yankees at the high-school level. Crescenta Valley High starting baseball pitcher Kris Krise wouldn't admit to it minutes after he faced a talent-laden Mater Dei squad, for which its prominence might carry it to another CIF title. Krise couldn't extend CV's season after the Falcons dropped a 9-2 decision to second-seed Mater Dei in a CIF Southern Section Division II quarterfinal round playoff game at Stengel Field on Friday night.

Erik Boal MOYSE FIELD -- Anytime Mater Dei and Loyola highs get together on the football field, something special usually happens. Saturday night's nonleague contest at Moyse Field was no different. It had college-bound athletes making college-level plays, gritty goal-line stands, long passes and long runs, big penalties and big hits. But with five seconds remaining in a tie game, it was 5-foot-10, 170-pound Mater Dei kicker Bryan New who stared at the uprights from 31 yards away with a chance to deliver the biggest play of the game.

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."

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Ahead by six runs with just two innings to play, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team seemed to have its first-round CIF Southern Section Division I game in the bag. The Falcons did win, 9-6, against visiting Long Beach Wilson on Thursday evening at Stengel Field. But the win didn't come before the game got real interesting. "It was that one inning," said Falcon starting pitcher Dustin Emmons in reference to the Bruins' four-run sixth. It was a stanza in which the go-ahead run came to the plate after the Falcons began the inning with a seemingly comfortable 8-2 lead.

GLENDALE — It’s been nearly two full seasons since Renaissance Academy’s basketball team and Price have stood toe to toe. In the winter of 2006, both were CIF Southern Section Division V-A powerhouses — Price an established juggernaut and Renaissance an up-and-coming force. Since then, things have drastically changed. Both were moved up to Division III, maintaining highly regarded programs, while coming up short in bids for CIF and State glory.

"Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are." ? John Wooden Tuesday night was one of those nights that makes me loathe my job. You see, not much good comes from the combination of controversy, heartache and anger. Perhaps it builds character. Perhaps. Maybe. We'll see. For seven innings of nail-biting, mind-spinning, gut-seizing baseball, the boys on the Crescenta Valley and Mater Dei ballclubs went back and forth, constructing that clich├ęd game in which nobody was really a loser.
