So it's not the greatest show on earth, but the annual lip-sync contest at Calabasas High--where students mimic their favorite rock stars--might be one of the most popular. The shows Wednesday night and tonight sold out 600 seats in four days.
John Reich, the Calabasas soccer coach, has seven team members practicing for the affair.
"I want to see how fresh they'll be," Reich said. "They'll probably be dying on stage."
Maybe not. The Coyotes took time out from their show-business schedule and barely worked up a sweat Wednesday afternoon in a 2-0 win over Yucaipa in the Southern Section 1-A quarterfinals.
Calabasas (16-5-3), ranked fourth, could have called it a wrap early, but the hot-passing Coyotes couldn't get a shot into the net. Despite being upstaged, Yucaipa (16-4-1) managed to keep the first half scoreless.
But the second half merely had to begin for all that to change. Poe Allen, the Coyotes' leading scorer, took the ball downfield on the first possession, dribbled past one defender and fired in his 14th goal of the season.
