"We didn't play very well and against a good team, things got out of hand very fast," Marina Coach George Pascoe said. "Los Al was well coached and very physical. We did not match their intensity."

The Marina-Huntington Beach rivalry began in 1965. The Oilers currently possess the perpetual Victory Trophy that goes to the winner of the big game.

Huntington, which this week moved into the Top 10 in the Southwest Division poll at No. 10, has won three straight in the series.

Newport Harbor (2-4, 0-1) vs. Fountain Valley (3-3, 0-1), 7 p.m., Huntington Beach High: Fountain Valley will try to regroup from a tough loss to Huntington Beach against a Newport Harbor crew that also dropped its Sunset League opener last week.

The Barons scored at the end of their first drive of the game when Derek Huynen connected on a 36-yard field goal. They increased their lead to 10-0 on a seven-yard run by Wyatt Christensen in the second quarter.

The Barons, who had been efficient on third-down conversions in the opening half, couldn't find their rhythm in the second half.

"We did not play well offensively, at all, and penalties just killed us," Fountain Valley Coach John Shipp said. "Our defense played their butts off all game. As a whole, though, we didn't get the job done. It was a tale of two halves."

Newport Harbor has lost two straight games, the Sailors' most recent defeat coming last week to Edison. They lost leading rusher Tala Teapua and back-up running back Chance Siemonsma to injury in the loss.

Segerstrom (6-0, 1-0) vs. Ocean View (3-3, 1-0), 7 p.m., Ocean View High: Ocean View faces its stiffest challenge of the season when it hosts Segerstrom in a key Golden West League game.

The Jaguars are the top-ranked team in the Southern Division. They favor the run game, which is led by David Perkins. The senior back has rushed for 899 yards and 14 touchdowns. Senior Sonny Roa has 643 yards and 10 TDs in six games.

The Jaguars are averaging 46 points a game.

Ocean View won its league opener last week by rallying to take down host Santa Ana, 31-28. Reo Washington put the Seahawks on the scoreboard in the first quarter by returning a kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown. Nate Kwon scored on a 13-yard run and Daniel Valencia ran for a score and took in a six-yard TD pass from quarterback Dallas Broge.

Cristian Negrete hit the game-winning field goal with 17 seconds to play.

"I'm proud of how the team responded to adversity," said Nunez, whose Seahawks were down 14 points heading into the final quarter. "Santa Ana threw out the kitchen sink at us in the first half and our defense was able to settle in. I have been telling the kids all year that we will have to pass to win sometime this year, and we did Saturday night."

Brethren Christian (4-2) vs. Monte Vista (2-4), 7 p.m., Monte Vista High: Brethren Christian closes out nonleague play with a trip to San Diego County to take on Monte Vista of Spring Valley.

BC ended a two-game losing streak last week by winning its homecoming game, 40-28, over Fairmont Prep of Anaheim. In his debut at running back, Jared Fuga rushed for 217 yards and two touchdowns.

"We were pleased with our victory over Fairmont Prep," BC Coach Pat McInally said. "We were able to play a number of our younger players, and were really tested by their outstanding quarterback (Bobby Varnadoe)."

BC junior quarterback Jack McInally threw two TD passes in the win to set a school single-season record for touchdown passes at 25. The old record was 23, set in 1986.

"This is a tribute not only to Jack's outstanding play, but to great play design and play calling by offensive coordinator Ryan O'Hara, consistent protection up front, and a very talented group of receivers," Pat McInally said.

Monte Vista has dropped three straight games. The Monarchs last week fell, 24-7, to Spring Valley rival Mount Miguel. They are led by senior running back/linebacker Sam Taylor, and senior quarterback Ricardo Hernandez.
