Oh boy, this is not what the Sunny Hills football team wanted to read, so maybe the players should skip to the comics. Or the astrological forecast. What's coming next isn't good news. Today is Jeff Byrd's 18th birthday. And he's looking for that special gift, if you know what he means. "A victory would be the best present," Byrd said.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Vaqueros fell to the Curse of the 10th Game when they dropped their Garden Grove League season final to Los Amigos, 18-17, last Thursday. The first four times were little more than a nuisance; the last two have been a nightmare.

Sooner or later during a Rancho Alamitos football game, someone watching Marshall Brown carry the ball will say it: "If he turns the corner, he's gone." They are usually right.

When he breaks loose past the line of scrimmage and turns up the jets, there's little chance a defensive player could catch him without a Ferrari.

Rancho Alamitos High School's football team has forfeited its season-opening 42-0 victory over Troy because it used an ineligible player, Vaquero Coach Mark Miller said.

"It was difficult for us because the girls who had been on the team the year before didn't lose until the final game, so they had a tough time understanding and dealing with it," Becker said. "But I knew most of our problems would be corrected in time. . . .

After nearly four months of basketball, everything seems routine to Anita Stecker. Even a Southern Section championship-winning shot. Stecker made a six-foot turnaround jumper with two seconds remaining to give Rancho Alamitos a 68-66 victory over West Covina South Hills for the III-A girls' title Saturday at the Bren Center. Vaquero Coach Bob Becker called Stecker's basket, "The Big One." Stecker, however, considered it a play she has made hundreds of times since practice began in November.
