The Cal Lutheran defense keeps getting stingier. Following a season-long pattern, the Kingsmen allowed fewer points than in their previous game, defeating Chapman, 10-6, in a nonconference game Saturday at Mt. Clef Stadium. At this rate, a shutout could be next. "Our defense really played well today," defensive back Justin Hansen said. "Everybody wants to make a big play, and sometimes they come."

Now would be the time for Pepperdine. The Waves, who haven't won a women's volleyball match at the University of San Diego since 1992, will try again tonight with the West Coast Conference title hanging in the balance. The 11th-ranked Waves (20-2, 9-1 in WCC play) lost a tough five-game match last month to the 21st-ranked Toreros (20-3, 9-1) at Pepperdine. "I think the last time we were too relaxed," Pepperdine setter Becci Roehl said. "I think our attitude is going to be better."

The Kingsmen, in their first game under Coach Scott Squires, committed five turnovers. Two led to San Diego touchdowns, another to a field goal.

After a seven-month layoff, 74 of the region's finest senior high school football players will take the field for one last hurrah.

Making his first start of the season, Cal Lutheran quarterback Zack Hernandez got an extended on-field look at his teammates under game conditions. He didn't like what he saw in a 49-7 loss to Chapman in a nonconference game Saturday at Cal Lutheran. "This is downright embarrassing," he said. "We have everything that it takes to win. There's just these little things that we've got to fix. We've just got to cut out all the little mistakes."

For the third game in a row, the Cal Lutheran defense played well enough to win, but the Kingsmen fell to Whittier, 16-13, Saturday night in a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener because the offense sputtered. Cal Lutheran (1-2) led, 13-9, until Steve Luce connected with Otis Carmichael on a 44-yard touchdown pass play with 9 minutes 38 seconds to play.
