 For years, Curtis Godin was a baseball player. Last year, as a junior, he gave up trying to make Mater Dei's varsity baseball team and decided to try something different -- track and field. He ran the 100 meters in 10.79 seconds in his first year. In the off season, he began full-time track training, lifting weights and running. Last week, in his season debut, he ran the fastest time in the state, clocking in at 10.71 seconds. Suddenly, Mater Dei might have a top 100-meter runner.

Rancho Santa Margarita Tesoro (6-1, 2-0) at Mission Viejo (7-0, 1-0), 7:30 p.m. (Fox Sports West): Tesoro first-year Coach Matt Poston has been having a difficult time trying to find a weakness in Mission Viejo's attack. On offense, the Diablos have been relying on quarterback Ian Fieber and running back Alex Suchesk. On defense, end Michael Mathewes has been close to unblockable. Tesoro will need strong performances from running back Jon Rivera, who has scored 10 touchdowns, and defensive end Jack Bares, who has 10 sacks, to win this South Coast League title decider.

It's time for Compton to show if it's ready to take charge of the Moore League race with a showdown road game against Long Beach Poly on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Compton has been playing much better of late, almost knocking off Loyola a couple weeks ago. Robert Lewis has been the key player in the last two league games. Poly is very strong defensively and still has weapons, such as improving center Jordan Dallas. In the Trinity League, top-ranked and unbeaten Santa Ana Mater Dei hosts St. John Bosco.

 Despite signs of improvement this season, Scott Orloff said Tuesday he has been fired after four years as football coach at Trabuco Hills. The school is moving from the South Coast League to the Sea View League next season, so don't be surprised if Trabuco Hills becomes the league favorite and a section title contender. Chad Johnson, a top assistant at St. John Bosco and a former Trabuco Hills assistant, could be a leading candidate to replace Orloff. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

In a season full of surprises, the Southern Section football playoff pairings were released on Sunday with more surprises.

It's a sign of the uncertainty and unpredictability of the playoffs that begin in 13 divisions on Friday. The Pac-5, the section's premier division, is filled with intrigue.

High school football fans who enjoy lots of scoring should make plans to head out to Mission Viejo High on Friday night for a regular-season finale that doesn't get much better than the Diablos (9-0) taking on Lake Forest El Toro (9-0) to decide the South Coast League title. Asked how many points will be needed to win, El Toro Coach Rob Frith said, "Oh my gosh - it could be a lot. " El Toro, led by senior quarterback Conner Manning, is averaging 47.2 points a game, with a high of 77. Mission Viejo, led by junior quarterback Ian Fieber, is averaging 51.4 points with a high game of 84. "It could be an old-fashion shootout," Frith said.

Crenshaw (6-1, 2-0) vs. Dorsey (4-3, 2-0) at Rancho Cienega Park, 7 p.m. (Time Warner Cable Channel 101, midnight): A year ago, Crenshaw lost to Dorsey, 7-6, in a Coliseum League game. The Cougars have no sympathy for Dorsey, which has struggled to stop the run and pass this season. "We're hoping in our last couple of games we've gotten some of our problems solved," Dorsey Coach Paul Knox said. Crenshaw will turn to its top two athletes, Mossi Johnson and Dominique Hatfield, on both sides of the ball.

Mission Viejo had a 23-point lead at halftime and a 22-point lead at the end of the third quarter against San Clemente on Friday night in a showdown between two of the South Coast League's top teams. But for Mission Viejo to win, its defense had to come through again — just as it had for most of the game. When Diablos defensive end Garrett Marino sacked the Tritons' Travis Wilson with 1:46 left, Mission Viejo's defense had saved the day, preserving a 29-21 victory. No. 4 Mission Viejo improved to 6-2 overall and 2-0 in league play.
