It was supposed to be a battle between the tough defense of Thousand Oaks High and the potent offense of Channel Islands. But it was Channel Islands (8-2, 5-1 in league play) which blended tough defensive play with the running of fullback Jerry Williams to post a 27-7 victory over Thousand Oaks and earn a share of the Marmonte League title Saturday night at Hueneme High. Channel Islands will advance next week's Division II playoffs as the league's No. 1 team; Thousand Oaks (6-3-1, 5-1) is No. 2.

The Channel Islands High girls are not interested in good theater, and they're a little perturbed at playing these nail-biting basketball games. Give them a blowout filled with ennui rather than a dramatic finish any day. "I just don't feel the games should be this close," Channel Islands Coach Don Salado said after Thursday night's 56-51 victory over host Simi Valley.

Sitting at anchor in a craggy cove of Santa Cruz Island with no other soul in sight is like traveling back in time. The roar of the surf, the bark of a sea lion, the gentle lapping of the water against the hull makes you forget that just 24 miles away lies the city of Santa Barbara and the Southern California mainland, one of the most populous areas in the nation.
