 For only the fifth time since Oaks Christian opened just a short walk away from Westlake, the two schools will play each other in high school football on Friday night for the Marmonte League championshp at Westlake. Expect a sold-out venue and a great game, because that's what happens seemingly each time the two schools meet. Westlake is 3-1 against the Lions and it seems silly now why the two schools wouldn't play each other for so long until they got put into the same league.

About a dozen people were arrested Wednesday when Los Angeles police raided a Westlake motel, authorities said. A resident at the Royal Park Motel, at 1906 W. 3rd St., said he heard police breaking down a door about 7 a.m. and watched as officers served several warrants at the location. Sgt. Michael Mabie of LAPD's Rampart Division confirmed 11 people were taken into custody for alleged drug, weapons and trespassing violations. Their names were not available mid-morning, as they were being still being processed by police.

When he arrived at one of Los Angeles' preeminent private high schools seven years ago, baseball coach Matt LaCour knew how to win. He had a CIF championship under his belt. But the self-described "public school kid" was now at Harvard-Westlake School, the destination for many children of L.A.'s business and entertainment elite. In the past, the baseball team didn't win much and routinely let players skip half a double-header. LaCour sought to impose a new ethos: His players' non-class time should be centered on baseball.

Jose Fernandez looked out his apartment window near MacArthur Park and admitted, in defeat, that he's grown accustomed to the view: Torn couches, dingy mattresses, broken dressers, dusty headboards. The procession of rejected furniture piles high and wide on the sidewalk, compliments of neighbors and whoever else decides to dump and run. "I've seen junk stay out there a week … sometimes a month," the 24-year-old said. "Everyone walks by and stares. No one does anything about it. " Hoping to put a stop to the rubbish, the city recently launched a $1-million cleanup effort aimed at Councilman Gil Cedillo's 1st District, including areas such as Lincoln Heights and Mount Washington.

Harvard-Westlake School has plowed relentlessly forward to become one of the top college preparatory schools in the country. But the Studio City academy appears to face formidable opposition in its latest bid to expand and improve its high school campus -- with a 750-space, three-story parking structure and playing field that would replace a tree-covered hillside along Coldwater Canyon. City planners this month released a draft environmental impact report, opening a public comment period of at least 45 days.

Johnny Hooper, the junior water polo standout at Studio City Harvard-Westlake High, didn't hide his emotions Tuesday night after the Wolverines came close to ending Santa Ana Mater Dei's unbeaten streak of more than three years. "It really hurts," he said. "It stings to have lost that game. " Harvard-Westlake (13-2), ranked No. 2 in Southern Section Division 1, fell to the Monarchs, 8-6, in a game it led, 6-2, in the third period at Mater Dei. But the inexperience of the youthful Wolverines combined with stellar play from 6-foot-8 Mater Dei goalie McQuinn Baron got the top-ranked Monarchs (14-0)

 Westlake Village Westlake seemed headed for oblivion not long ago. The Warriors had lost to La Serna, were 2-2 and not expected to win any big games in the Marmonte League. Suddenly, Westlake is 4-2, routed St. Bonaventure, 31-17, in its Marmonte opener on Thursday night and now the Warriors could be ready to put together a six-game winning streak. Credit the return of junior linebacker Quincy Bennett for giving Westlake a big lift. A year ago, Bennett started the season opener, then broke a bone in his foot.

 Westlake's defense shut down St. Bonaventure's high-powered offense, and quarterback Malik Henry had touchdown passes of 49 and 16 yards to Andre Baccellia to help the Warriors upset St. Bonaventure, 31-17, in a Marmonte League East Division opener on Thursday night at Santa Barbara City College. Jesse Cuccia made two interceptions for Westlake (4-2, 1-0), which spoiled the return of Alabama-bound quarterback Ricky Town, who missed St. Bonaventure's previous three games with a knee injury.
