Darryl Kaminsky kicked a 27-yard field goal with six minutes 26 seconds left to lift Fountain Valley to a 17-14 intersectional victory over Carson Saturday night at Orange Coast College. Kaminsky, who had not kicked in the game because of a pulled quadriceps, was given an ultimatum by his coach, Eric Johnson, after a junior varsity kicker missed the point-after attempt on the Barons' first touchdown. And Kaminsky made good, as Fountain Valley defeated the defending City Section champions.

Sophomore linebacker Matt Abrams had never played a down of varsity football or kicked more than a couple of field goals for the Los Alamitos junior varsity team. But Thursday at Veterans Stadium, while breathing new life into the Griffins, he became another figure in a growing cast of characters that has turned Edison's season upside down.

In an embarrassing mistake, CBS was showing its national audience a commercial Saturday while Notre Dame's John Carney was kicking his game-winning field goal against USC. The field goal was shown on tape after the commercial. A network spokesman said an extra 60 seconds were handed over to the affiliates and that nothing could be done to cut back to the game. An attempt was made by CBS to lengthen the timeout, but the officials didn't grant it, the spokesman said.

The Pac-10's most accurate field goal kicker of 1997 is accurate no longer. USC's Adam Abrams ended his consecutive field goal streak at 12 Saturday when he missed three field goals, from 39, 29 and 44 yards, against San Diego State at the Coliseum. His last missed field goal, a 34-yard attempt, was in the third game last season against California. * Senior Billy Miller has caught a pass in 13 consecutive games. Last year, he led the Trojans in receiving and was fifth in the Pac-10.

Tom Hess kicked a 19--yard field goal as time expired to lift visiting Corona del Mar over Huntington Beach, 19--16, in an error-plagued nonleague game. Hess had scored earlier on a one-yard run with just three minutes remaining to bring the Sea Kings to within one point of the Oilers. But instead of going for the two-point conversion and the victory, Corona del Mar Coach Dave Holland was content to go for the tie. "I wasn't thinking we might get the ball back," Holland said.
