Before the showdown by the surf, Moorpark College football Coach Jim Bittner worried that his team would fall victim to Santa Barbara City's high-powered passing attack. The Vaqueros indeed tried to reach high gear, but six turnovers--including four interceptions of passes by Jerrod DeGeorgia--caused the offense to lurch, and the Raiders escaped with a 37-28 victory Saturday in a Western State Conference North Division game.

In terms of chills and thrills, Moorpark College fullback Gil Carrillo competed with an unlikely source on a night he rushed for 250 yards and two touchdowns. A teammate, Joe Lafirenza--the punter no less--provided the competition. Indeed, Harbor's best hope on a night it had its hopes of a championship dashed by the Raiders was the sight of Lafirenza jogging onto the field.

Moorpark College fullback Gil Carrillo pierced the Glendale defense Saturday with the purposeful ease of an airborne javelin, much like those he threw last year for the Cal State Northridge track team. Carrillo rushed for 244 yards and four touchdowns in 23 carries to lead Moorpark to a convincing 49-32 win at Glendale High in a Western State Conference finale that decided the Northern Division championship.

Police on Tuesday said they are nearly certain that the arson fire that killed two adults and two children in their Canyon Country apartment last week was a murder-suicide, triggered by a domestic dispute.

EL CAMINO (1-2) vs. PALOMAR (3-0) At El Camino, 7 p.m. El Camino has proven itself offensively, but the question is whether the Warriors have the defense to stop the nation's third-ranked team in the USA Today poll. El Camino has given up an average of 30.3 points and 393.7 yards. That doesn't bode well for the Warriors considering that Palomar's offense, led by quarterback Tom Luginbill, averages nearly 500 yards.
