(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)Show Caption of Expand LOS ANGELES — Sam Darnold stood atop a ladder in a corner of the Coliseum and led USC’s marching band in a rendition of “Conquest.” Disaster threatened for most of Saturday night, but in the end, the Trojans could celebrate, escaping with a 28-23 victory over UCLA. “I thought our kids did what needed to be done to win a hard-fought ballgame,” USC coach Clay Helton said. The 87th edition of the crosstown rivalry was up for grabs late into the fourth quarter. Related Articles Miller: UCLA’s Josh Rosen throws for everything but victory against USC USC sends off seniors before win over UCLA Whicker: Trojans grind out another one to win 10th game of the season In a nationally-televised showcase featuring two of the nation’s top quarterbacks, UCLA’s Josh Rosen dropped a 27-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Lasley in the end zone with 2:43 left, moving the unranked Bruins within a touchdown and a potential for their biggest upset in the series in more than a decade. Rosen had hit Lasley in stride after he had passed Jack Jones along the south sideline. But the Trojans, who had entered as 16-point favorites and were ranked No. 11 in the College Football Playoff rankings, recovered an ensuing onside kick and ran out the clock on the final two-plus minutes in front of 82,407 at the Coliseum The victory meant little as far as USC’s postseason destination. It had already sewn up a Pac-12 South Division championship and fallen mostly out of the playoff mix. But its victory marked its third in a row over the Bruins, all under Helton, including his final game as the team’s interim coach in 2015, and gave the program its first 10-win regular season since 2011. “It’s huge for how much adversity we’ve faced this year,” said Cameron Smith, a junior linebacker for the Trojans. “I’ve never played 12 games in a row in my life. To say we’re 10-2 is huge. I couldn’t be happier right now.” UCLA (5-6, 3-5 in the Pac-12) out-gained USC, 501-417 yards, but remained one win shy of becoming bowl eligible. Its regular-season finale is Friday against Cal at the Rose Bowl. “It’s upsetting,” said Jedd Fisch, the Bruins’ offensive coordinator. “Our guys played really really hard and really really good. And every now and then there was just a play that moved us back.” USC has its first bye week on Thanksgiving weekend before it plays in the Pac-12 championship game on Dec. 1. Rosen, in his second game back from a concussion, completed 32 of 52 passes for 421 yards and three touchdowns with an interception against the Trojans. The junior quarterback often found Lasley, who caught 10 passes for 204 yards and all three touchdowns. Darnold, USC’s prolific passer, completed 17 of 28 passes for 264 yards with an interception. “It’s awesome being able to battle a great player like Josh,” Darnold said. Before Rosen’s 27-yard scoring toss to Lasley, the Trojans had a 28-17 lead with 5:19 left, after running back Ronald Jones capped a 10-play, 90-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run. Jones totaled 122 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries, but the Trojans had more trouble than expected on the ground against the nation’s worst-ranked rush defense. They ended with 153 total rushing yards, the fewest UCLA had allowed in a game this season. Its previous low was when it held Memphis to 162 yards in September. And its offense often stalled as a result. USC led 14-7 at halftime and first scored on a trick punt return. While the punt fluttered to the north sideline, where Michael Pittman caught it, USC’s players collapsed around Ajene Harris on the south sideline. UCLA’s players then followed to Harris. Pittman, as a result, was left open and ran 72 yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter. It was the difference in the margin after the first two quarters. Both quarterbacks saw potential scoring chances end later in the first half because of turnovers. UCLA appeared poised to even the score at 14 right before halftime. On a third-and-12, Rosen took a punishing hit as he delivered a well-timed throw over the middle to Christian Pabico, securing a first down at the Trojans’ 17-yard line. But the trip to the red zone ended two players later when Rosen was sacked and stripped. Malik Dorton, USC’s defensive end, pushed past Bruins center Scott Quessenberry into the backfield, and as Rosen started his throwing motion, the ball was knocked loose. Linebacker John Houston scooped up the fumble. The previous drive by USC had reached UCLA’s 30-yard line, but Darnold lofted a pass downfield in desperation on a fourth down and was picked off by Jaleel Wadood. Most of the Trojans’ success against Rosen came as it sacked him a total of four times, including on consecutive plays in the third quarter. Rosen was also intercepted by safety Marvell Tell in the end zone when he attempted to thread a pass into double coverage on the Bruins’ opening drive in the third quarter. It was the second of two trips to the red zone that ended without a touchdown for UCLA. Molson also missed a 47-yard field goal attempt in the first half. “When the going gets tough, our defense steps up,” Smith said. For the Bruins, if it stumbles next week, they will likely miss a bowl game for a second consecutive season under Coach Jim Mora.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)Show Caption of Expand LOS ANGELES – The Coliseum was nearly silent as time expired Saturday night, a strange response to a USC victory in the Crosstown Rivalry. Perhaps even the Trojans’ fans are tired of winning games and losing eye tests. USC defeated UCLA, 28-23, for its third straight victory over the Bruins but not many cheered a victory over a 16-point underdog. That is unheard of in a USC-UCLA rivalry, where a mere victory is enough in this normally bitter encounter. But it was virtually like every other USC victory this season. The Trojans did just enough to win but not enough to make anyone think they would defeat a top 10 team. That will not matter to Clay Helton but it matters to the Trojans’ fan base and to Athletic Director Lynn Swann. They will want to know how USC rushed for 153 yards against the nation’s worst run defense, which surrendered 302.3 yards rushing before the game. That was 9 yards less than Memphis gained against UCLA, the Bruins’ best effort of the season. They will also want to know how USC’s secondary allowed 421 yards passing and wide receiver Jordan Lasley to catch three touchdown passes. This is normal for a garden-variety Pac-12 defense but USC is supposed to be an elite team. Lasley’s caught five touchdowns in two years against the Trojans, so apparently defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast is still searching for answers. If anyone wanted the College Football Playoff committee to show more respect to USC, they better hope none of the members watched the game, as the Trojans committed 11 penalties for 115 yards. USC wide receiver Michael Pittman provided the highlight of the game with a 72-yard punt return for a touchdown but the Trojans committed at least four penalties on special teams. UCLA finished with 501 yards in offense. “Their offensive skill was phenomenal,” Helton said. “We went into the game saying we would have to play our best to win.” That did not happen. Not even close. But USC played just well enough to win. As usual. “Any time you get into a rivalry game . . . it was really a hard-fought game, to come out on top was very rewarding for us,” Helton said. Thank God the game was a showcase for Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen because it badly needed some energy. The contest illustrated their strengths and weaknesses. Rosen was accurate but did not show much mobility when USC blitzed. Darnold was mobile and throwing on the run but missed on an open deep ball to tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe. For the 20 NFL scouts in attendance, it depended on what they wanted in a quarterback. Helton had no such dilemma choosing because Darnold’s bailed him out all season, including Saturday. In fact, Darnold should be mad at Helton because the Trojans did not have any timeouts left at the end of the first half, when the star quarterback got tackled as he ran at the UCLA 5-yard line and the clock ran out. Just another missed opportunity for USC (10-2). The first half played out like so many other games. The Trojans appeared to be in control but never led by more than a touchdown. In the second half, Pendergast went into his Cover 0 defense after the Trojans opened up a 21-7 lead. UCLA needed only two minutes, 35 seconds to answer with another touchdown. Although USC cornerback Jack Jones has been the poster boy for losing composure in recent games, offensive tackle Chuma Edoga grabbed the crown Saturday night. He committed a personal foul, then argued with the officials and threw his helmet as he came off the field. Edoga also had a false start and two penalties the previous week against Colorado. One reason he has not played at times this season is because of losing his temper with the coaches during games. It’s all just another sign of the lack of discipline within the program. At least Jones did not commit any unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for the first time in three games but he gave up a touchdown and 41-yard completion to Lasley.

Haley Herberg of black-and-gold Capistrano Valley topped her career with the Division 2 individual gold while brown-and-gold Laguna Hills captured its first team championship in 25 years in Division 3 Saturday at the Riverside City Cross Country Course. Herberg, back-to-back O.C. champion, is one of the most accomplished runners in county history, but the CIF-SS title had eluded her. The senior had some close competition in Saugus’ Mariah Castillo but still burned the course to win the title at 16:20. “It feels really great,” Herberg said. “It’s my second-to-last high school race, unless nationals. I just really wanted to leave everything on the course. I’m really happy with how it went.” Herberg’s time, the fastest girls time on the day, set the Division 2 course record and is the second-fastest time in course history. “This is definitely a confidence boost,” said Herberg, who has signed with Oklahoma. “I feel like last week (in a victory at preliminaries) I didn’t give it 100 percent. So this week to just really go out race, get those gears turning again. It felt really good.” Capo Valley finished third as a team and qualified for the CIF State meet. Canyon and Mission Viejo qualified in Division 2. Canyon’s Sara Leonard (16:59) finished third, and Mission Viejo’s Kelli Hines (17:10) took fourth. In Division 3, Laguna Hills won its first CIF-SS championship since the Hawks went back-to-back in 1991-92 by placing four runners in the top 20. “Twenty-five years is a long time,” Laguna Hills coach Chris Lynch said, “but definitely worth the wait.” Laguna Hills dealt with injuries and busy schedules all season but showed its strength in the biggest moment. “This is the deepest team in 40 years of Hawk cross country,” Lynch said. “ I’ve had a rotating lineup for two months, and today we finally put all the pieces together.” Maya Williams (18:44) and Lauren Turner (18:45) paced Laguna Hills in 11th and 12th. “What you saw out there today was love,” Lynch said. “They were running for each other. It sounds corny, but it’s true.” El Dorado’s Lucina Vincent (17:58) finished third in Division 3 to qualify as an individual. Esperanza, Corona del Mar, Brea Olinda’s Whitney Valenti, Century’s Samantha Lopez and Bolsa Grande’s Laina Kanuho also qualified for state. St. Margaret’s girls took the runner-up plaque in Division 5 as Andy Carnell (18:00) led the Tartans in third. Sage Hill also qualified in third. In Division 1, El Toro and Dana Hills qualified for state. Dana Hills held on in the seventh position. In Division 4, Diane Molina of Costa Mesa battled through sickness and a mid-race sore hamstring to qualify as an individual in fifth place, even if she didn’t realize it at first. “Did I? I didn’t even see,” Molina said. “Oh, OK! I’m great!” JSerra, Laguna Beach and Orange Lutheran’s Sophie Gutierrez all qualified in Division 4.

  • Notebook: Jordan Lasley stars in UCLA’s rivalry lossNotebook: Jordan Lasley stars in UCLA’s rivalry loss

    LOS ANGELES — The ball went off a USC defender’s fingertips then it bounced of a USC defender’s helmet. Then it landed in Jordan Lasley’s hands. Lasley’s miraculous 43-yard catch in the third quarter of UCLA’s 28-23 loss was one of the redshirt junior’s many big plays against the Trojans on Saturday as the former Gardena Serra product is starting to make a habit of stepping up in UCLA’s annual rivalry game. He is one of the rare Serra prospects to follow the blue and gold road to Westwood instead of the Coliseum. He made the Trojans pay for skipping on him with three touchdowns and a career-high 203 receiving yards on 10 catches Saturday. He could have added another 45 yards through the air if not for a penalty on offensive lineman Andre James. Lasley had two touchdown catches last year against the Trojans. Without receiver Darren Andrews, Lasley is UCLA’s main receiver and most potent deep threat. He had catches of 31 and 43 yards on play-action passes in which he split the safeties and blew the top off the USC secondary with his speed. But the same way Lasley has started to consistently make big plays against the Trojans, he’s also regularly picking up unsportsmanlike conduct fouls. He scored UCLA’s opening touchdown last year and got flagged on the celebration. After his second touchdown catch Saturday, Lasley stared down USC’s Ajene Harris and appeared to taunt the Crenshaw High alumnus. Lokeni Toailoa out One of the final true linebackers left for the Bruins fell as Lokeni Toailoa did not play Saturday with a shoulder injury. The middle linebacker was on the sideline with his left shoulder in a sling.

In nine games this season, he had 17 tackles and one tackle for loss. He started two games, but ceded to senior Kenny Young, whose experience and leadership helped stabilize the UCLA defense at the middle linebacker spot where he played for the past four years. Young, Krys Barnes and Mique Juarez are the only linebackers on UCLA’s roster who started their careers at that position. The Bruins have converted safeties DeChaun Holiday and Brandon Burton also playing linebacker with converted defensive end Keisean Lucier-South. Juarez has not played any significant defensive snaps this season after taking a year off due to personal reasons. Quick hits Safety Jaleel Wadood (neck) returned after a one-game absence. Wadood got an interception in the second quarter, his first since 2015. … DE Jaelan Phillips (concussion) dressed for the game, but did not play significant snaps. Phillips missed three games this season due to an ankle injury and missed last week’s game against Arizona State due to the concussion.

  • Sage Hill sweeps Crean Lutheran, advances to volleyball regional semifinalsSage Hill sweeps Crean Lutheran, advances to volleyball regional semifinals

    NEWPORT BEACH – Sage Hill’s girls volleyball team swept Crean Lutheran 25-18, 25-17, 25-15 Saturday to advance to the semifinals of the CIF Southern California Division II Regionals. The Lightning will play No. 1 seed Sierra Canyon of Chatsworth in the semifinals Tuesday night, Nov. 21, at Sierra Canyon High. Sydnee Francis was dominant serving the ball for No. 5 seed Sage Hill (26-9). The junior had five aces in the match, including four consecutive aces in the first set. “Those aces certainly helped,” Sage Hill coach Dan Thomassen said. “We know that serving is one of our strengths. We are committed to serving tough. That’s our game.” Amiyah De’long had a game-high 14 kills for Sage and sophomore opposite Danielle Beder had eight kills. “Dani (Beder) had one of her best matches of the season blocking and attacking,” Thomassen said. “Our outsides came through with big kills tonight and got better and better as the match kept going.” Sage Hill had beaten Crean Lutheran twice this season in Academy League games this season, but Crean played the league-champion Lightning tough both times. The Saints took Sage to five sets in the teams’ second meeting of the season. “We went undefeated in league and Crean were our toughest matches,” Thomassen said. “That last match reminded us that we had to bring our best game to win tonight.” Crean Lutheran (22-10) swept Santa Fe Christian after suffering a tough loss to Santa Monica in the CIF-SS Division 4 playoffs, but ran into a Sage team that played an excellent game Saturday. “I have to tip my cap to Sage. They are very well-coached and played a great game,” Crean Lutheran coach Eric Olson said. “We played a very good game as well, but not good enough to get Sage off their game.” Lauren Sinclair had a team-high 8 kills and 14 digs for Crean. Sinclair and sophomore outside hitter Grace Colburn are two of Crean’s top players and both are returning next season. “Both of those girls are amazing players. Grace (Colburn) is the best sophomore that’s ever played at Crean and Lauren is the best player I’ve seen at this school,” Olson said.

  • Miller: UCLA’s Josh Rosen throws for everything but victory against USCMiller: UCLA’s Josh Rosen throws for everything but victory against USC

    LOS ANGELES – He didn’t miss by much, but it was enough, enough to vent on a night when, if you were a Bruin, that’s what you did. You vented. So, late in the third quarter, after throwing slightly behind Christian Pabico, causing the junior receiver to drop a possible third-down-converting pass, Josh Rosen slapped his helmet with both hands. Three times. Bang. Bang. Bang. Related Articles UCLA football hangs with USC but can’t overcome self-inflicted wounds Whicker: Trojans grind out another one to win 10th game of the season He also grabbed two fistfuls of facemask, tugging down on his own helmet as a way to release what was boiling inside him. Another loss to USC. Another empty finish. Another mound of frustration. On a night when Rosen was at times brilliant, he and Bruins again simply couldn’t do enough, losing 28-23. He unleashed bullets and lofted rainbows and had a 43-yard completion that bounced off two Trojans defensive backs before settling into the open arms of his intended receiver. He passed for 421 yards and three touchdowns and did absolutely nothing to disrupt the momentum building toward his future NFL career. And still it wasn’t enough. All of that, and it still wasn’t enough. Rosen did everything but desire his team to victory in what will almost certainly be his final game against USC, his next appearance in the Coliseum – if there is one – likely coming as an opponent of the Rams. And he didn’t stop slinging until he no longer could, the Trojans gaining possession in the final three minutes after a failed onside kick and draining the reminder of the clock. Immediately prior to that, Rosen completed his 32nd pass on his 52nd attempt, this one dropping softly into Jordan Lasley’s hands for a 27-yard touchdown that extended the intrigue of a game in which the Bruins were 14.5-point underdogs. Largely because of Rosen and Lasley (10 receptions for 204 yards and all three of those touchdowns) the Bruins never faded on a night when they were forecast to do so. Instead, UCLA finished with more first downs and total yards than USC did and converted 10 third downs to the Trojans’ two. It was all very notable, but it still wasn’t enough, the Bruins now having lost three straight to their rivals. Rosen went over 300 yards before the third quarter even had ended, eclipsing the mark on a 44-yard completion to tight end Austin Roberts, a completion that set up something more meaningful. On the next snap, he dipped his shoulder on a pump fake, freezing USC’s secondary briefly and allowing Lasley to gain ample separation for an easy 9-yard touchdown, bringing UCLA to within 21-14. Still, the moments of frustration will be how Rosen and the Bruins remember this game. On the opening drive of the second half, he drove his team deep into USC territory. Facing third-and-11 from the 14-yard line, Rosen attempted to squeeze a pass impossibly through multiple Trojans defenders, his eyes apparently bigger than his arm, and this is a quarterback with a massive arm. The pass – one of Rosen’s few genuine mistakes Saturday – was intercepted by safety Marvell Tell III in the end zone, providing another fitful moment as Rosen’s second red-zone turnover in as many trips. On UCLA’s previous possession, the night for Rosen and the Bruins was summed up best by a three-play sequence late in the second quarter. Trailing 14-7 and moving toward a possible halftime tie, Rosen kept the drive alive by passing 12 yards to Pabico to convert a third-and-12 to the Trojans’ 17. Not only did Rosen flaunt his touch on the play but also his toughness as he stood in to make the pass despite an impending body blast by USC defensive end Christian Rector. After an incompletion, with calamity and the Trojans again swirling about him, Rosen was sacked by defensive end Malik Dorton, the hit resulting in a fumble and securing USC’s halftime edge. Though it ended in angst, it didn’t start that way. In the first quarter alone, passes by Rosen converted three third downs and a fourth down, a fourth-and-10, a fourth-and-10 with USC linebacker Uchenna Nwosu bearing down on him. It was an impressive start for Rosen, even if the Bruins scored only once and trailed 14-7 entering the second quarter. That first UCLA touchdown came on a Rosen 11-yard pass to Lasley, a back-shoulder throw that looked every bit like something you’d see on a Sunday afternoon. Rosen’s throw arrived just as Lasley looked back for it, leaving Trojans cornerback Jack Jones in the rather difficult position of trying to defend something that was basically beyond any and all defense. There were a reported 20 NFL scouts at this game, all seated in the press box, and you could practically hear the salivating. Roughly three hours later, everything Rosen and the Bruins had done was being drowned out by the sound of the celebrating Trojans, that ringing in their ears coming from a pounded head.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)Show Caption of Expand Mitchell was among five fifth-year seniors who originally joined the program in 2013 under Lane Kiffin and remained through three head coaches, followed by Ed Orgeron on an interim basis, Steve Sarkisian and Helton. “Really a group that has not only carried us to a Rose Bowl but the possibility of a Pac-12 championship,” Helton told reporters after a practice two days earlier. “They have a tremendous opportunity to leave their legacy and really, hopefully as we continue to improve each and every year, I think they’re the foundation of how it got done.” USC also introduced two student undergraduate assistants, Kevin Carrasco and Jonathan Labonty. Carrasco was a walk-on cornerback last season, among the holdovers from Kiffin’s tenure, and in fact expected to continue as a redshirt senior this fall. But during spring practice, USC’s compliance office learned that Carrasco’s eligibility had expired due to a class he took in junior college, starting his eligibility clock in 2012 rather than 2013, his father, Ramon, said. Helton asked if he would like to remain in an assistant role. He said yes. Carrasco was the first senior introduced. GETTING CHIPPY Right tackle Chuma Edoga was given a personal-foul penalty after he shoved a UCLA defender at the end of a 4-yard run by Ronald Jones late in the second quarter. It marked the third consecutive week the Trojans, among the most penalized teams in the nation, were flagged for a personal foul. USC pulled Edoga for the rest of the series. APPROACHING TOP FIVE Jones rushed for 122 yards against UCLA, moving nine yards shy of passing O.J. Simpson on the school’s all-time rushing list. Jones, a junior, moved into sixth last week when he ran for 142 yards, ahead of Mike Garrett, Reggie Bush and LenDale White. Saturday was the 50th anniversary of Simpson’s winning 64-yard touchdown run against UCLA in the famed “Game of the Century.” The No. 4 Trojans in 1967 knocked off then No. 1 UCLA, 21-20, following the fourth-quarter run. SUNDAY AUDITIONS Both players from USC and UCLA were set to draw attention from NFL evaluators Saturday night. Representatives from 20 NFL teams, plus the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders, were credentialed QUICK HITS Cornerback Iman Marshall, who had missed USC’s past three games because of a knee sprain, started against UCLA. … Daniel Imatorbhebhe started at tight end in place of Tyler Petite, who has been hobbled by an AC sprain in his shoulder. … Left guard Chris Brown was pulled during the third quarter with an apparent injury and was replaced by Roy Hemsley. … Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson led the Trojans out of the tunnel prior to kickoff. Pederson, wearing a cardinal-colored baseball jersey, was once committed to USC’s baseball program, before turning pro when he was selected in the 11th round of the 2010 MLB Draft.

  • UCLA football hangs with USC but can’t overcome self-inflicted woundsUCLA football hangs with USC but can’t overcome self-inflicted wounds

    LOS ANGELES — Jordan Lasley either didn’t know that he was out of bounds or didn’t care. He was going to fight for the pass anyway. So on a two-point conversion attempt that quarterback Josh Rosen overthrew to the back of the end zone, Lasley elevated and fully extended to reel in the ball. As he came crashing down, he plowed into the padded goal post. A valiant effort all for naught. UCLA hung with No. 11 USC in its annual rivalry football game on Saturday, but couldn’t overcome its many mistakes in its 28-23 loss. After three straight wins against the Trojans to start Jim Mora’s tenure in Westwood, the Bruins have now lost three straight in the series. UCLA, a 16-point underdog, kept the game close despite numerous miscues. UCLA missed a field goal and allowed a 72-yard punt return for a touchdown on a trick play. Ajene Harris, USC’s primary punt returner, faked as if the punt was coming to him and called for a fair catch. The Bruins fell for the trick and converged on the redshirt junior cornerback while Michael Pittman fielded the punt on the other side of the field. UCLA didn’t pick up on the ruse until he had already taken off for 10 yards untouched down the USC sideline.

Two years ago, when the then-freshman committed three turnovers in his rivalry debut, the Bruins couldn’t bounce back. On Saturday, they kept fighting. After Sam Darnold rushed for a 1-yard score in the third quarter to put the Trojans up by two touchdowns, the Bruins responded with 10 straight points to pull within four. They dialed up a third-down stop on the next drive with a chance to get the ball back for the lead. Then Darnay Holmes was called for defensive holding. With the drive still alive, Ronald Jones ran for a 2-yard touchdown, which was enough to keep UCLA at bay. UCLA committed 12 penalties for 100 yards. USC averaged 23.4 yards per kick return. With the loss, UCLA has a final chance to secure bowl eligibility next week at the Rose Bowl. It will try to avoid missing back-to-back bowl games for the first time since 1989-90 by securing a win over Cal on Nov. 24.

  • Mater Dei captures inaugural SoCal Regional boys water polo titleMater Dei captures inaugural SoCal Regional boys water polo title

    NEWPORT BEACH It’s not easy for a Mater Dei boys water polo team to distinguish itself when its program has seemingly achieved every possible honor. Yet the Monarchs found a way Saturday night playing their brand of water polo. Jackson Seybold scored five goals and recorded four field blocks and goalie Billy Motherway added 10 saves as top-seeded Mater Dei captured the inaugural CIF Southern California Division 1 regional championship with a 12-4 victory against third-seeded Newport Harbor at Corona del Mar. In becoming the Mater Dei’s first regional champion, the Monarchs (30-3) again celebrated some of their eight field blocks more than their goals and raced to a 6-1 lead at halftime. “It’s definitely builds up the team mojo when we get those shot blocks,” said the Stanford-bound Seybold. “It’s good to finish the season like this but our main focus was CIF-SS (Division 1). We just wanted to come out and have fun and obviously we accomplished that and won.” Mater Dei, which beat Newport Harbor in the semifinals en route to its seventh section title, also went 5 for 8 on the power play and displayed potent outside shooting. Rising sophomore Cooper Haddad netted two goals while five other players finished with one apiece. “This tournament has been special just for them to play one more (time) together,” Mater Dei coach Chris Segesman said. “I told the guys … ‘you might as well play the way we play and finish it the right way’ …They finished it in great fashion.” Newport Harbor (26-7) upset second-seeded Oaks Christian, 10-8, in the semifinals but went 2 for 7 with the extra attacker in the finals. The Sailors, who won their first league title since 2013, focused on the positives. “I’m really proud of what we were able to accomplish this year,” Newport Harbor coach Ross Sinclair said. In Division 2: Orange Lutheran 14, Santa Margarita 8: Ash Molthen scored four goals and Hannes Daube added three to lead the Lancers (29-3), who lost in the first round of the Division 1 section playoffs. “We’re extremely disappointed at the outcome of the season … but I think my guys showed a lot of resiliency, humility to be able to come back and play some really, really good teams,” Orange Lutheran coach Steve Carrera said.
