Benefit golf classic date nears

SchoolPower will hold its 10th annual Golf and Gourmet Classic at

In addition to the golf tournament, a silent auction, live auction

and raffle will be held the day of the event.

Laguna drops pair

Laguna Beach’s boys’ under-13 soccer team found the going tough

last weekend as it dropped a pair of Silver South Division contests.

On Saturday, Laguna Beach lost a 4-0 decision to the

co-division-leading Irvine Strikers Red at Alton Park.

On Sunday, Laguna was handed a 5-0 shutout loss by Wolfpack Blue

in a match played at Wolfpack Field in Fountain Valley.

It was Wolfpack Blue’s first win of the season.

The two losses puts Laguna (1-4-2) winless in its last three

matches. The team has not won since defeating FRYSC Rush, 2-1, in the

fall season opener back on Sept. 8.

Laguna gets another crack at FRYSC Rush, also 1-4-2, on Saturday

when the teams do battle in a 9:30 a.m. match at Acacia Park in


Laguna Beach and FRYSC Rush currently are tied for sixth place in

the Silver South Division standings.
