Breakdown: Newport Harbor has never started 2-0 in the Sunset League since rejoining the league in 2006 … Huntington Beach was picked to finish third in the league this year … A Sailors win here and they will most likely need one more victory to secure one of the league's three guaranteed berths into the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division playoffs … The Sailors and Oilers have one common nonleague opponent, Corona del Mar, this year … Newport Harbor defeated host CdM, 29-26, and the Oilers at home lost to CdM, 28-21 … Newport Harbor leads the series against Huntington Beach at 32-19-4.
