  It was 12 years ago in the Coliseum in the City Section championship game between Dorsey and Taft that I last saw a team block a punt in the final seconds to win a game. Dorsey blocked the Taft punt with seven seconds left and recovered it in the end zone for a 19-14 win. On Friday night, there I was at Westlake High. There was 22 seconds left. All Oaks Christian needed to do was get its punt off. There was a high snap and Westlake's Chase Jasmin broke through the middle to make the block.

 After a three-hour meeting, 51 schools from the Northern Area voted on Tuesday to approve a new three-league football proposal that attempts to settle once and for all what to do about St. Bonaventure and Oaks Christian. It received 31 votes to 20 for another proposal. Beginning this fall, the Marmonte League for football only will be Oaks Christian, St. Bonaventure, Westlake and Moorpark. The Camino League will be Newbury Park, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks and Royal. The Canyon League will be Agoura, Simi Valley, Oak Park and Calabasas.

 During Friday night's wild Marmonte League game between Westlake and Oaks Christian, there was a play in the first half that raised some questions. Oaks Christian quarterback Brandon Dawkins, on a sneak, was ruled to have scored a touchdown, though video provides conflicting evidence that the ball might have been taken from his hands before he was able to reach the end zone. Westlake won, 39-36. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

You can always count on something strange and dramatic happening when neighborhood rivals Westlake and Oaks Christian meet in a high school football game, but Friday night's fifth-ever meeting produced an ending that won't soon be forgotten. "An amazing ending. Spectacular. Best football game ever," Westlake's Chase Jasmin said. Forgive the sophomore running back if he was feeling a little exhilarated, but he came through with the most stunning play on a night of repeatedly remarkable plays.

 For only the fifth time since Oaks Christian opened just a short walk away from Westlake, the two schools will play each other in high school football on Friday night for the Marmonte League championshp at Westlake. Expect a sold-out venue and a great game, because that's what happens seemingly each time the two schools meet. Westlake is 3-1 against the Lions and it seems silly now why the two schools wouldn't play each other for so long until they got put into the same league.

 A West Hills-based club team, the Pacific Baseball Academy, made up primarily of players from the San Fernando Valley, won the Arizona Sophomore Fall Classic over the weekend, going 6-0. The team was led by sophomore third baseman Parker Brahms of Calabasas. He's 6 feet 2 and expected to be one of the better hitters in the Marmonte League this spring. Sophomore pitcher Paul Giacomazzi threw seven scoreless innings. Sophomore shortstop Ivan Lomeli of Birmingham was solid in the field.

 It has been a long time since a Cal State Northridge baseball coach was able to recruit and keep high school players from going off to a college away from the neighborhood. First-year Coach Greg Moore is starting to having some success. On Tuesday, he received commitments from three standouts out of the Marmonte League _ pitcher Matt Campbell of Simi Valley, infielder Blake Chiaramonte of Moorpark and catcher Albee Weiss of Agoura.

 Westlake's defense shut down St. Bonaventure's high-powered offense, and quarterback Malik Henry had touchdown passes of 49 and 16 yards to Andre Baccellia to help the Warriors upset St. Bonaventure, 31-17, in a Marmonte League East Division opener on Thursday night at Santa Barbara City College. Jesse Cuccia made two interceptions for Westlake (4-2, 1-0), which spoiled the return of Alabama-bound quarterback Ricky Town, who missed St. Bonaventure's previous three games with a knee injury.
