Breakdown: Following Laguna Beach's victory over Costa Mesa on Thursday night, Estancia is locked into a second-place finish in the Orange Coast League ... Godinez is also 3-2 in league. But even if Estancia loses to Calvary Chapel, Estancia owns the tiebreaker over Godinez due to the head-to-head result, so Estancia would earn the OCL's second CIF berth and Godinez the third ... Estancia clinched a CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoff berth following last week's 40-7 victory over Saddleback ... Murtha, the Newport-Mesa all-time leading rusher, needs just eight yards for 5,000 in his career ... Estancia has won its last three meetings with Calvary Chapel, including a 40-0 shutout victory last year.
