5/28: Football: Carpinteria-Bishop Diego Alumni Game: It’s dubbed “War on the Shore IV,” marking the fourth time grizzled rivals are suiting up to settle old scores and raise funds for the two high schools. Bishop Diego took a 2-1 lead in the alumni series by edging the Warriors, 10-9, before 7,000 fans in 2008. They hope to draw a similar turnout this Saturday. Carpinteria has an advantage in the varsity football series that started in 1949, but the Cardinals have won the last five games. Bishop coach Tom Crawford will not be able to use his recent standout players, however, because they must have graduated at least five years ago to be eligible for the alumni game. Players such as defensive end Thor Schmidt, a 1994 Bishop grad who played for Northwestern in the Rose Bowl, proved that oldies can be goodies when he was named MVP of the 2008 game. The Carpinteria alums, coached by Rick Candaele, include men who won CIF championships in 1991 and 2002. There will also be alums from each school on the officiating crew. 4pm. La Playa Stadium, S.B. City College. $10. Call (805) 967-1266 or (805) 684-4107.
