Newport Harbor (4-1) vs. No. 5 Irvine (5-0)

October 13, 2000|MARTIN HENDERSON

7 TONIGHT IRVINE HIGH

Two stellar defenses face outstanding offenses. Newport Harbor has averaged 32 points per game since Chris Manderino made the switch from quarterback to tailback, and Irvine has averaged 43 for the season. Newport Harbor defeated the Vaqueros in last year's Southern Section Division VI championship, 19-18, and won the regular-season game, 12-10. A knee injury creates a question about the status of Irvine quarterback Travis Otott (10 TDs, 1 interception), but receiver Josh Short proved to be a competent backup, completing 14 of 20 passes for 178 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, in a 24-0 victory over Loara.
