San Clemente receiver Trevor Insley was off on another precision pass route Friday night. At the same moment, a sideline official turned away from the field to talk to Triton coaches. When the ball arrived, not only was Insley smacked by a Mater Dei player, but he was blindsided by the official. Or did Insley blindside him? Hard to tell, since the official was still facing backward. No matter. Insley made the catch and San Clemente upset Mater Dei, 23-17.

What is this, football? Hockey? Maybe whatever passes for pro basketball these days? Paul Ladin of Westlake Village had just finished the second round of the State Senior Amateur Championship when he began tossing around words like aggressive and attack , terms not typically associated with the genteel game of golf. In short, Ladin said he played defensively and promised it wouldn't happen again. Today, he attacks--even if he dies trying.

After making his first and only birdie putt of the day, an eight-footer on the 18th hole at Poppy Hills Golf Course, Paul Ladin raised a hand over his head and barked loud enough to rattle the dishes in the clubhouse kitchen. "Finally," he said. His play wasn't that bad. Not by a long shot. Ladin fired a one-over-par 73 Wednesday, good for fourth place after the first round of the 3rd State Senior Amateur Championship, for players 55 and older.
