The week leading up to Friday's Orange League showdown with visiting Western, Brea Olinda's practice field looked more like a hospital ward. The walking wounded were everywhere, including standout running back Scott Lieng, who was nursing a sore ankle. Things got so bad defensively that the 10th-ranked Wildcats were using fourth- and fifth-string tackles in blocking drills.

Brea Olinda's stifling defense did not allow Savanna a first down until late in the third quarter Friday night and the Wildcats coasted to a 33-6 victory in an Orange League opener at Western High.

It isn't easy launching a new film festival--even under the best of conditions. It can be difficult to generate enough attention to draw a large audience. And competition for films, in an age when it seems most medium-sized cities boast of a local film festival, can be stiff. Good speakers are hard to find, and the amount of organizational work is enormous. And a large earthquake makes things even tougher.
