Costa Mesa vs. Laguna Beach

When/where: Tonight, 7 at Jim Scott Stadium

Key Mustangs: Sr. OT/DT Andrew Albers; Jr. QB/DB Nathan Alvis 1,214 yards passing, 12 TDs, five INTs, 10 rushing TDs); Sr. RB/DE Tyler Sheffner (six combined touchdowns rushing and receiving).

Key Breakers: Sr. QB Austin Paxson (1,635 yards passing, 16 TDs, 10 INTs); Jr. RB/LB Norton Penney Jr. (290 yards rushing, two TDs); Jr. WR/LB Derek Reigel (26 catches for 379 yards, six TDs).

Breakdown: Following Calvary Chapel's loss to Estancia on Thursday, the Mustangs can move closer to a CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoff berth with a victory tonight … The Mustangs (3-5, 2-1 in league) can't clinch a playoff berth with a win, but their worst-case scenario would likely be a three-way tie for second in league if they lost to rival Estancia next week and Calvary Chapel beat Godinez … The Orange Coast League has three guaranteed spots into playoffs … The Breakers (1-7, 0-3) have struggled this year in league and are playing without standout receiver/defensive back Chris Paul … Paul, last year's Orange Coast League MVP, suffered a separated shoulder Oct. 22 against Calvary Chapel.
