CdM to scrimmage Mesa

The Corona del Mar High football team will scrimmage Costa Mesa High at 7 p.m. on Aug. 27 at Estancia High, CdM Coach Jason Hitchens said Thursday.

Hitchens said the CIF Southern Section has allowed teams that have Week Zero games to scrimmage a week before their opener without losing a game during the regular season or having to play the season without a bye week. Hitchens said CdM will have a bye week before it opens Pacific Coast League play.

Newport Harbor Coach Jeff Brinkley said earlier this week that the Sailors are scrimmaging at JSerra on Fri., Sept. 3, but the time has not been set.
