The Orange Coast College football team had plenty to talk about on the three-hour-plus bus ride home after defeating host Santa Barbara City College in the nonconference season opener Saturday. But the Pirates, most assuredly, also talked about nothing. The latter refers to the OCC defense's shutout in the 11-0 victory, the first zero posted by the Pirates in 19 games and only the program's second shutout in 114 contests. As rare as blanking an opponent is, however, it was not totally unexpected.

Whatever Orange Coast College football coach Mike Taylor told his team before Saturday's game at Pasadena City College, apparently needed little time to sink in. The Pirates, who slumped to a 21-3 halftime deficit the week before in a 40-32 loss at Palomar, opened emphatically Saturday on their way to a 37-17 victory over the host Lancers. "I challenged the team before the game," said Taylor, who watched his team open a 14-0 cushion in the first 101 seconds, cruise to a 30-0 halftime lead and hold on to improve to 3-1. "We came out flat last week [against Palomar]

The Orange Coast College football team ventures to Escondido High today to battle Palomar at 1 p.m. But it's ground uncharted by a Pirates team since 1991 that Coach Mike Taylor's 2-0 squad is trying to reach. OCC, which has not opened 3-0 since 1991, will attempt to do so against the Comets (2-0), who are ranked No. 23 in the nation by JC Grid-Wire. OCC, on a three-game winning streak, is ranked No. 24 in the state coaches poll, in which Palomar sits No. 13. OCC freshman Kekoa Crowell will make his first start at quarterback for the Pirates, replacing injured sophomore Chad Schmigel (bruised ribs)

Like so many households, hospitals and school districts in California, Orange Coast College has recently found itself hosting guests who fled Hurricane Katrina. And thanks to some generous donors, the college is prepared to welcome more. This week, two young men from Mississippi arrived in OCC's financial aid office, seeking to enroll and have their tuition covered for the fall semester. Melissa Moser, the college's director of financial aid, said administrators were still working to get the students enrolled, even though classes had started a week ago. However, if and when the students -- whose names the college is withholding -- officially sign up for the fall, they will have their funding in place.

One socked 38 home runs in the major leagues. One served as a political leader in a southern African nation. One lived the sweet life in Orange County, stayed in community college for years -- and became a millionaire by his early 30s. Such are the disparate life stories of Brent Mayne, Inonge Mbikusita-Lewanika and Paul Frank, all of whom were named this week as inductees to Orange Coast College's Alumni Hall of Fame....

Roy Disney, nephew of the legendary Walt Disney and a longtime boat owner, has donated his prize-winning racing yacht to the Orange Coast College Foundation, the latest in a string of major gifts to the college's School of Sailing and Seamanship. In late July, Disney donated Pyewacket, an 86-foot vessel, for use by OCC. The acquisition marks the second major gift this year to the sailing school, which received the racing yacht Kialoa III from Marina del Ray businessman Jim Kilroy last May. Disney's crew is sailing Pyewacket from Hawaii to Southern California.

Orange Coast College has a good men's water polo team. Unfortunately, Wednesday it met one of the best teams, Golden West College. The Rustlers have won the Orange Empire Conference championship the last four years. The past titles didn't faze the Pirates. OCC did lose the match, 17-10. However, the Pirates consistently attacked the Rustlers' net with varieties of perimeter and inside shots. OCC outshot Golden West 25-21, but the shots didn't convert into goals.

GLENDALE - Thanks to a balanced attack that featured four scorers in double figures, the Glendale Community College men's basketball team held firm to its own tournament trophy as the Vaqueros defeated visiting Orange Coast College, 91-72, in Saturday afternoon's Glendale College Vaquero Classic final. “This was our tournament, so we had to defend our home court and the championship,” said Vaqueros 6-foot-6 wingman Emmett Duvall, who was named to the all-tournament team after tallying 15 points and 15 rebounds.

A strong start just couldn't be sustained by the Glendale Community College women's cross-country team at Saturday's Southern California Championships, as the Vaqueros' season-long nemesis Orange Coast College once again had the last laugh. Running on the Pirates' home course of Fairview Park in Costa Mesa, the Vaqueros were leading the race through more than the first mile and Glendale No. 1 Grace Zamudio ended up winning the race. But Orange Coast's entire scoring five was able to cross the finish line between Zamudio and Glendale's next finisher, leading to an easy win for the Pirates, 53-105, their fourth over the Vaqueros this season.

COSTA MESA — Sophomore tailback Ray Holley still considers the Orange Coast College football team a work in progress. In Saturday’s 10-6 win over visiting Glendale Community College, the Pirates’ vaunted defense did more than its share of the work, while Holley, as he has all season, handled most of the progress. OCC (4-0), which is ranked No. 17 in the state and No. 10 in Southern California and came in with the state’s top rushing defense, continued to make opponents take steps backward.

Theater doesn't always involve interaction. Occasionally, an actor or actress can command the stage all by him- or herself. Orange Coast College's Repertory Theater Company will be out to prove that premise this weekend and next with its annual production of "Solo Voices," a festival of student-directed, one-person plays and monologues billed for mature audiences. The company, now in its 21st season of productions, is a student-run, faculty-advised campus theater company, which annually showcases its performers in single-handed presentations.

The Orange Coast College football team will attempt to get back on the winning track tonight, when the Pirates visit Pasadena City College at 6. The Pirates (2-1) are coming off their first loss of the season, having dropped a 40-32 decision Saturday at Palomar. Pasadena (1-2) has suffered consecutive losses to Golden West (34-28 Saturday) and Santa Barbara (13-7 on Sept. 10). OCC defeated Santa Barbara, 11-0, in its opener. The Pirates will start sophomore Chad Schmigel at quarterback, hoping to gain some consistency with an offense that has struggled this fall.
