After nearly 1 1/2 seasons of frustration, the outlook is brightening for the Verdugo Hills football team. The Dons scored their first points of the season--and earned their first victory since 1996--with a 21-14 victory over Marshall last Friday. This week, Verdugo Hills will play at home under the lights for the first time when the Dons play Lincoln at 7 p.m. Schools officials are planning a short ceremony between the frosh-soph and varsity games and a possible fireworks show at halftime.

Verdugo Hills High's 26-14 Northern Conference victory over Wilson on Friday might have done a little too much good for the Dons. With the victory, Verdugo Hills (6-4, 5-2 in conference) moved into a second-place tie with Wilson (6-4, 5-2). The Dons will be the conference's second-seeded team because they defeated the Mules. Verdugo Hills is hoping for a favorable seeding in the 3-A Division of the City Section playoffs, which will be determined today.

Pound for pound (all 110 of them) and inch for inch (all 65 of them), Jim Parque still may be the most underrated pitcher in the area. His philosophy is simple: Don't pay attention to the barbs of the opposition and just throw strikes. Height jokes are old news. Some are bad enough to spin a guy's cap around. "I hear stuff all the time," Parque said. "I hear, 'Hey, look at the hat on the mound.' Then I strike out the side and they shut up."

 In case no one noticed, top-seeded Fairfax won its City Section Division I girls' playoff opener by the score of 89-4 over Angelou. And No. 2 Narbonne defeated Verdugo Hills, 69-9.

"It could have been 200-0," Fairfax Coach Judi Edwards said. "It wasn't good for us. We were very sympathetic to Angelou.
