In a first-round Division I Southern California Regional playoff opener, Los Angeles Loyola and Crenshaw looked as if they were playing park league basketball, and the fans who packed Loyola's gym Wednesday night were entertained from start to finish.

Teammate Andre Edwards scored 29 points, including 20 in the third quarter. But Loyola's balance proved too much, and the Cubs (25-5)

Sherman Oaks Notre Dame (21-5, 9-2) at Los Angeles Loyola (16-12-1, 6-5) Today at 3:45 p.m. Why it matters: Notre Dame has a one-game lead over Encino Crespi (16-10, 8-3) going into the final Mission League game of the season. There's a good chance the Knights will be in for another nerve-racking finish -- they have played eight one-run games this season, winning five. Sophomore pitcher Matt Lathuras (3-0) is developing into a quality No. 2 starter.

Nothing was going to stop Mater Dei kicker Bryan New with the game on the line this time. Not the Los Angeles Loyola fans' chants of "De La Salle! De La Salle!" Not the Cubs' three interminable timeouts, called in an attempt to rattle the kicker who had already missed one fourth-quarter field goal. And especially not the 31-yard attempt he faced with five seconds left.

Color Division I football red and white--again. Mater Dei claimed its second Southern Section title in three years and capped off an unbeaten season with a hard-fought 17-10 victory over Los Angeles Loyola in front of 11,842 Saturday at the Coliseum. The Monarchs (14-0), top ranked in Orange County and ranked second in the last USA Today national poll, had just a bit more offensive talent than the Cubs (12-2), who were making their second consecutive appearance in the finals.

Friday's top games Bellflower St. John Bosco (3-0) vs. Los Angeles Loyola (3-0) at L.A. Valley College, 7 p.m. — Two years ago, St. John Bosco and Loyola replaced their head coaches with Jason Negro and Mike Christensen, respectively, and now both square off hoping to convince the alumni that their programs are headed in the right direction. And they are. St. John Bosco is loaded with outstanding skill-position players, led by receivers Bryce Treggs and Dalis Bruce. Loyola has found a new running back in junior Wyatt Bradford, along with a stingy defense led by cornerbacks Chaz Anderson and Cameron Walker that has given up only 21 points in three games.

There has been so much talk about the supposed demise of City Section basketball this season that some people actually believed it. What happened Saturday at the Nike Extravaganza at Santa Ana Mater Dei will put an end to such nonsense. Woodland Hills Taft, emerging as the City Section Division I title favorite, routed Southern Section power Los Angeles Loyola, 73-57. Fairfax defeated Rialto Eisenhower, 73-67. And Westchester defeated Mission Viejo Capistrano Valley, 45-42. "I think it means the City is still strong and can still compete with the big dogs," Taft guard Steven Jones said.

BOYS Los Angeles Loyola (26-3) at Woodland Hills Taft (24-5), Tuesday, 7 p.m. — Loyola hasn't played since losing to Lawndale Leuzinger on Feb. 26. While the Cubs try to shake off their rust in this Division I game, they'll have another obstacle to deal with: Taft guard Jordan Gathers, who was a starter for Loyola last season. "He'll probably know our play calls, so we'll have to execute," Loyola Coach Jamal Adams said. The winner is expected to take on Leuzinger in a quarterfinal game on Thursday.
