Julio Umana picked his way hesitantly across the dark mountain, his older brother, Jose, at his side. The boys traveled alone but were helped on their journey by people stationed like silent sentries along the trail. They appeared out of the brush to protect the boys, to tell them when to hide from the flashlights of border patrol guards and when to run. And as night gave way to dawn, the tired, cold and scared boys reached their destination. The United States. That was in 1986.

Among the best-guarded sports secrets in Los Angeles the last couple of years has been the phenomenal success of the East Los Angeles College soccer team. For whatever reason, the Huskies never received much recognition, even when they were weaving two of their--or anyone's--greatest seasons. Last month, the soccer team won the 1990 community college state championship with a 24-0 record by beating Moorpark College, 1-0, in the finals at Hayward in the San Francisco Bay Area.

But whatever twists and turns are in store for City Section teams, a trip to the City title game will follow a different course thanks to a radical change in the playoff system. That change has some coaches pleased and others scratching their heads in bewilderment.

When Angel and Virginia Andino went searching for a deeper religious experience 18 years ago, they found it in an unexpected place. Not in the Roman Catholic Church, traditionally a Latino stronghold and where Virginia had been raised, but rather in an evangelical Pentecostal church a few miles from their East Los Angeles home.

VICTOR CASTRO IS TALKING about his past sins, his catholic education and how, after a loyal but unexamined allegiance to that church, he left it to find his faith. "My parents raised me as a Catholic, but I never put my faith in it," says the 37-year-old Echo Park fabric worker, who eight years ago forswore Catholicism for an evangelical Protestantism. "This is not just religion; it's an experience with God." That experience came quickly for Castro, he says.
