A year ago this might have been an intriguing matchup. Western was headed to an unbeaten regular season and Los Alamitos--for a while at least--was the nation's top team. But while the Griffins have not lost much skill and stature, the Pioneers have. So Thursday night's game, the first time the teams have met, turned out to be a mismatch. Los Alamitos rolled up 42 first-half points and went on to crush Western, 56-12, in front of an estimated 2,000 at Veterans Stadium.

Despite the quality of athletes who have played football at Los Alamitos, there remains a belief that the offensive system is as much a star as the players. That theory was reinforced Thursday, even if the system had to work with spare parts during the fifth-ranked Griffins' 27-14 victory over Los Angeles Washington at Veterans Stadium. Los Alamitos was primed for an upset because of injuries.

After scoring two touchdowns in three plays at the start of the game, Los Alamitos' high-powered offense sputtered and then shifted into cruise control in defeating Pasadena Muir, 43-13, Friday night at Pasadena City College. The Griffins, The Times' No. 1-rated team, scored on their second play when Kevin Feterik passed to to Stan Guyness for a 73-yard touchdown.

Los Angeles Washington, facing the unenviable task of playing the top-ranked team in the nation, walked on to the Veterans Stadium turf 15 minutes late Thursday night. The game began 33 minutes after its scheduled 7 p.m. start. But not even a late arrival could put off the inevitable, as top-ranked Los Alamitos scored a 42-6 victory in front of 2,500. Washington's tardiness was because no one arranged for a bus.

Overwhelming. That's the only apt description of Los Alamitos' first-quarter mauling of Riverside Poly Thursday at Veterans Stadium. Less than 10 minutes into the game, the third-ranked Griffins had a 22-point lead and had gained 141 yards--which was 142 more than Poly. Good thing, because Los Alamitos needed most of that lead to hold off the Bears, 43-28, in a nonleague game in front of about 1,500.

After scoring two quick touchdowns in its first three plays, Los Alamitos' high-powered offense sputtered and then shifted into cruise control to defeat Pasadena Muir, 43-13, Friday night at Pasadena City College. The Griffins, top-ranked in Orange County and the Southern Section Division I, scored on their second play when Kevin Feterik completed a 73-yard pass play to Stan Guyness.

Lord Laurence Olivier, seen in a small role in the premiere of "Lost Empires" on "Masterpiece Theatre" last week, returns to PBS tonight with a much meatier part in "The Ebony Tower," a 90-minute film about the clash of two painters. At 79, he can still deliver. It is a performance to be savored.

In an unprecedented move, Cadillac has apologized to archrival Lincoln for fudging December sales numbers to maintain its coveted crown as the best-selling luxury brand for 1998. Historic segment leader Cadillac, skillfully zigging its way around the "L" word, said Wednesday that an internal audit showed that it "overstated" December sales by 4,773 vehicles. Initially, Cadillac had claimed the sales title by a scant 222 vehicles.
