Laguna Beach will face the new Irvine school for the first time Thursday in a league game.Two schools which have never met on the gridiron will do so Thursday when Laguna Beach takes on Beckman of Irvine in a Pacific Coast League game at Tustin High. Beckman opened its doors in 2004 and is in its first year of playing football at the varsity level. Laguna, on the other hand, first fielded a team in 1935. But like two other teams who call the Pacific Coast League home, Laguna coach Jimmy Nolan says that this is a program to keep an eye on. "They are a future powerhouse, like Northwood and Tesoro have become," he said.

That's just the way it appeared for CdM (11-2) in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division semifinal, the Sea Kings' third semifinal appearance in four years.

Chheng and Preston out for season as Laguna loses to CdM.When the Laguna Beach High football team dropped a 27-0 Pacific Coast League game to Corona del Mar on Oct. 20, the setback proved to be more costly than just a loss. Two key cogs on the team, Garrett Preston and George Chheng, suffered season-ending injuries. The seniors were both two-way starters. Preston suffered a torn quadricep and Chheng a knee injury. The good news in the loss to Corona del Mar, Breakers coach Jimmy Nolan said, was the fact that Laguna's defense played "much better" than it did in its previous game, a 52-7 loss to Tesoro on Oct. 7. For the third consecutive week, the Laguna offense was held to a touchdown or less.
