A woman was transported to a local hospital Friday with minor injuries after her car went over the side of a road in Burbank. The woman was allegedly driving down Orange Grove Terrace before realizing the street turned into a dead end. When she tried to turn around, her car went over the side and ended up in the parking lot of the Church of Later Day Saints. The car had two passengers, who climbed out before Burbank firefighters arrived on scene. The driver was trapped, however, and firefighters used jaws of life to extricate her from the vehicle.

With a resounding 16-1 mercy-rule victory over St. Anthony at Gross Park Thursday afternoon, the Guards put a stamp on an already dominant season in which they scored in double figures against each of their Santa Cruz opponents, going 8-0 and 18-5 overall, including winning 13 of their final 14 regular-season games.

BELL-JEFF VS. SANTA CLARA WHEN: 7 p.m. today. WHERE: Memorial Field at Burroughs High. RECORDS: It is the season opener for both team. LAST YEAR: The Guards defeated the Saints, 32-6. OUTLOOK: Their first few games will likely determine how successful the season will be for the Guards (9-2 and Santa Fe League champions last season). With the loss of most of its offensive impact players, Bell-Jeff will have to rely on athletes who are untested at the varsity level.

Church member and professional conductor and composer Rhonda Kess has written a musical based on the story of St. Bernadette of Lourdes that will have its world premiere this week at St. Finbar Church. The production, “Lost and Found - The Trial of St. Bernadette,” is a fundraiser with proceeds benefiting youth activities, like retreats, sports programs, filmmaking projects, book groups and others that provide positive influences, Kess said. While it is based on a religious story and produced in a church, Kess said, one need not be Catholic to enjoy the production.

LONG BEACH — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' basketball team shared a Santa Cruz championship in 2008. It was the program's first title in a decade. The next three seasons would see the Guards breeze to a trio of league crowns, as Bell-Jeff was rarely pushed by opponents in league competition. But this season, St. Anthony — chalk full of talented players — was determined to dethrone the Guards. That almost happened three weeks ago when the Saints were in the game late, but lost to the host Guards by four points.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH - It was nothing short of a dogfight Thursday evening when the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' basketball team took on a tough St. Anthony squad in a crucial Santa Cruz League game. Both teams took turns holding the lead throughout four quarters - with 13 lead changes and nine ties in the second and third quarters alone - with the Guards and the Saints not being able to take more than a five-point lead. But despite falling behind with less than two minutes left, Bell-Jeff maintained its composure, took advantage of some missed St. Anthony free throws in the final seconds and received a big rebound to earn a 64-60 victory at home.
