 The Southwestern League has turned out to be one of the toughest in Southern California this season, with each victory an immense struggle.

McLellan struck out one, walked one and gave up five hits to help Vista Murrieta (13-4, 3-3) come up with a critical league victory over a very strong Temecula Valley (13-4, 4-2) team.

Coley Candaele left the relaxing beach community of Carpinteria to start a new football program at Vista Murrieta nine years ago. Everything came together this past season, when the Broncos won their first Inland Division championship and went 14-0 on the field. Candaele has been selected The Times' coach of the year. Corona Centennial had been 6-0 in championship games until Vista Murrieta knocked off the Huskies in the Inland final, 35-28. But Candaele's biggest challenge occurred in October, when his team was forced to forfeit five nonleague victories after declaring a player ineligible over incorrect information supplied by a school in Georgia.

There was a double rainbow glistening among the storm clouds at Encino Crespi on Friday night. Then there was a 10-minute downpour in the first quarter, a weird weather experience that the visitors from Vista Murrieta are used to in their community. No one felt more comfortable or pumped than Vista Murrieta cornerback Elijah Brown. A year ago, he was injured and couldn't play in a nonleague game against the Celts, who ran up 482 passing yards in a victory. This time, Brown and his Broncos teammates wanted to make amends, and they did so in a big way. Brown had two interceptions and linebacker Su'a Cravens added another.

He ran 12 yards on another down. He ran 14 yards for a touchdown with 1:18 left, pulling the Broncos to within a two-point conversion of tying the game.

Corona Centennial is going to a state bowl game; the only question is which one.

Call it perfect timing in the era of BBCOR bats. Top-seeded Orange Lutheran has put together a baseball team that relies on pitching, defense, bunting and finding ways to score without the aid of a home run. It has led the Lancers (23-4) into the quarterfinals of the Southern Section Division 1 playoffs after a 7-2 win over Vista Murrieta in a second-round game Tuesday at Hart Park. Six of their 10 hits Tuesday were infield singles. Conner Sullivan, who had three singles, started the game sliding into first base to beat out a ball that pitcher Jeff Moberg couldn't handle.
