Costa Mesa Councilman Donn Hall left the crowded council chambers stunned Monday night when he proposed that the Segerstrom family withdraw its plans for a major development that included a 32-story skyscraper.

"We were lucky tonight," Olson said, remembering the Irish could only take a four-point lead into halftime before putting the game away with two second-half touchdowns.
