Bishop Amat 7, Loyola 7--Dennis Wyrick caught Chris Rix's 37-yard pass for a touchdown with 32 seconds to play at Pierce College, giving Bishop Amat (9-0-1, 2-0-1) the Del Rey title. An unsportsmanlike call against the Loyola bench on third down led to a fourth and 20 from the Loyola 20 with two minutes remaining. That set up good field position for Bishop Amat, which had to go only 53 yards for the tying score.

Jerry Buss' show-stopping mansion in Playa del Rey has sold for $5.1 million. The custom Italian-style villa was built in 1998 by the late Los Angeles Lakers owner and billionaire, and it shows. Lakers logos are incorporated in the home's stained-glass double-door entry, which opens to a rotunda. Spanish tile floors, wood-beam ceilings and a winding staircase continue the architectural style inside. A three-stop elevator also connects the 10,846 square feet of living space. There are multiple balconies, three fireplaces, seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms -- just enough excess to befit the man who transformed the local professional basketball team into what became known as "Showtime" by giving seats to celebrities and entertaining fans with the Laker Girls.

Lana Del Rey was in no way afraid of the selfie. At three different points in the alt-torch singer's 45-minute Outdoor Stage set Sunday night, Del Rey descended into the audience to vamp and pose with fans, allowing - encouraging, even - the rampant repurposing of her image across social media. She even prolongued one cinematically sexy smooch with a male fan who couldn't seem to get his phone-camera game together quickly enough to simply point and shoot.   Given Del Rey's nostalgia-tinged sex appeal, who could have blamed him?

A tense confrontation between one person with a knife and another with a gun resulted in a fatal shooting Monday night on the Westside.  Los Angeles Police Department Officer Drake Madison said there was some type of argument at the home in the 4700 block of La Villa Marina in Del Rey at about 7:30 p.m. A knife was pulled, and then a gun, and then one person was shot and killed, Madison said. He said it appeared that the two people may have known each other. A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County coroner's office said the deceased person has not been publicly identified.

Alemany 6, St. Paul 3--Alemany (2-7, 1-3) ended four years of frustration with the upset at home. The Indians had not won a Del Rey game since 1992.

After missing first two passes, Nieto completed his next seven and finished 10 of 17 for 97 yards. Gonzalez caught six for 76 yards. St.

Del Rey resident Tom Meza on Saturday planted a 5-foot-wide sign in the front yard of an alleged drug dealer. Decorated with a fist and a pointing finger, the sign read: "We know who you are; you deal early in the morning and deal late at night. You're making big bucks, but it's a matter of time before you'll be making big time in jail."

Del Rey League athletic directors emerged from a meeting Thursday with a plan to unravel the league's tangle of playoff possibilities as the baseball regular season enters its final day of play today. Five teams are fighting for three playoff berths and only one game separates the teams in the standings. Possibilities include a four-way tie for first in which one of the league's co-champions would be excluded from the playoffs. There are no at-large berths in the Southern Section 5-A Division.

Because she was on the West Coast, Lana Del Rey said, she thought it made sense to unveil her new single midway through her performance Sunday night at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Titled, um, " West Coast ," it's a characteristically bleary number that sounds like Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen" slowed down to a narcotized crawl; there's a bit of "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak in there too, as, indeed, there is in all of Del Rey's music. But Coachella's location wasn't its only appeal to the singer.

A 70-foot powerboat anchored just south of Marina del Rey ran aground early Thursday. Officials said the captain of the Angelique awoke about 4:30 a.m. to the sound of the boat dragging its anchor. Attempts to start the vessel's engines were unsuccessful, and before rescue boats could arrive, the boat ran aground in heavy seas. Los Angeles County lifeguards and sheriff's deputies took three people and three dogs from the Angelique onto the rescue boat. No one was injured.

On a recent weekday morning, a Starline tour bus swung open its doors at Fisherman's Village in Marina del Rey, and Australian tourists Laura Ross and Kate Lund surveyed the scene. The faux maritime shopping center - with eateries and gift shops built around a fake lighthouse - was mostly empty. Many of the trinket shops were barren, their windows dusty, the walls ripped out. The ocean air had long ago turned vibrant red, yellow and turquoise paint to pastels on the dilapidated wooden buildings.

A natural gas leak in Playa del Rey on Monday was caused by a contractor's truck that drove over a well's protective cover, damaging a small valve, a spokeswoman for Southern California Gas Co. said. The incident occurred around 1 a.m., with the release of pressure causing a “loud screeching noise,” said Angela Fentiman, a spokeswoman for the utility. The truck was discovered with its engine running on top of the valve, she added, but the driver was not located. It was not immediately clear if the truck had driven onto the gas storage facility in the 8100 block of Gulana Avenue, or if it had been inside the campus prior to striking the valve.

Join Times staff writer Matt Stevens at 9 a.m. Thursday for a discussion about boat owners in Marina del Rey who are resisting plans for the first extensive pollution cleanup in the area's history. On Thursday, the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board is scheduled to consider changes that would force boaters to strip copper paint from the bottom of their vessels and replace it with a less toxic alternative. Almost all of the marina's more than 4,500 boats have bottoms covered in copper paint . Officials estimate that paint stripping will cost $6,000 for a 40-foot boat, and that isn't sitting well with the marina's boaters.
