LAGUNA BEACH ? Illness and lineup shifts shaped the way the Orange Coast League girls? tennis match between Estancia and Laguna Beach was played Thursday at Laguna Beach High. Both teams were without a key player and their absences forced Eagles Coach Rachel de los Santos and Breakers Coach Jimmy Gleason to move other players into different slots. Those changes did nothing to prevent a spirited effort by both teams that, in fact, played to a 9-9 tie. The Breakers, however, took the victory by virtue of a 77-71 advantage in games won. The loss, the first in league play for Estancia, sent the Eagles to 2-1 in league and 8-4 overall.
