A Buena Park man accused of killing a teenage neighbor who stole a Halloween decoration from his front porch was convicted Friday of voluntary manslaughter by a jury that concluded the shooting was an accident, not murder. Prosecutors had sought a second-degree murder verdict against Pete T. Solomona, saying he shot his 17-year-old neighbor in a rage over having his plastic pumpkin stolen. The jury, however, said it believed Solomona's story that the gun went off by accident.

The Cleveland Browns' highest-rated quarterback of the season? Hint: It's not Brandon Weeden or Brian Hoyer. It's punter Spencer Lanning, who was involved in a couple of pivotal fakes Sunday in the Browns' 31-27 victory over Minnesota, and finished with a 152.1 passer rating. As the holder on a 29-yard field-goal try, he picked up the ball and tossed a pass to a wide-open Jordan Cameron, who scored an 11-yard touchdown. "The only thing I was thinking was not overthrowing him," said Lanning, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Irvine Valley men's basketball Coach Jerry Hernandez is consumed by two things as he walks along his bench. First, Hernandez is instructing his players in the game. But he's also scanning his bench for the combination of players who will perform well enough to keep the Lasers in first place. Irvine Valley is the deepest team in the Orange Empire Conference, but the Lasers are without a standout offensive leader.

Look for the Bruins to start the season opener against Santa Clara tonight with a lineup similar to the one they used for two exhibition games last week. That could put as many as three freshmen on the court, with Dan Gadzuric at center and Jerome Moiso and JaRon Rush at forward. Sophomore Travis Reed is also in the frontcourt mix. At guard, sophomore Earl Watson sat out practice because of a slight groin injury earlier this week but is expected to be ready.

Marquis Grissom announced his retirement Tuesday after a 17-year major league career. The 38-year-old outfielder signed a minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs in January and had hoped to make the team as a backup. But he batted only .200 in 17 spring training games. Grissom leaves as one of seven players with 2,000 hits, 200 home runs and 400 stolen bases, joining Craig Biggio, Roberto Alomar, Barry Bonds, Rickey Henderson, Paul Molitor and Joe Morgan.

Shootout or staring contest, when it comes the Southern Section Division I final, the Royal High boys' soccer team can't be beat. For the second time in three seasons, the Highlanders edged Fountain Valley for the division title. But whereas the 1995 final was a wild 5-4 victory, Friday night's was a 1-0 nailbiter. Brandon Kay scored in the 50th minute, knocking a deflected shot by Kendall Simmonds into the lower left corner of the goal.
