"Our goal at the half was to fix our mistakes. We wanted to go out there and win the second half, but we didn't do that, either."
Huntington twice reached Edison territory in the third quarter, but couldn't score. The Oilers first got there when senior strong safety Trevin O'Cain recovered a fumbled punt at the Edison 43. A personal-foul call during their offensive series hampered the Oilers. who would give the ball back to Edison on downs, after a fourth-down pass from the 32 fell incomplete.
On their next series, the Oilers moved from their own 23 to the Edison 36 but again on fourth down, a high snap was fumbled by Ross and Chargers' junior linebacker Manase Time recovered at the 42.

The Chargers scored four plays later, with Gane taking off around right end for a 49-yard touchdown run on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it 34-0.
The Oilers answered with their best drive of the night.
Starting from their own 36, they went in for their only score, a nice grab in the corner of the end zone by senior receiver Tucker deCamp who caught Ross' five-yard pass before tip-toeing out of bounds. The score came on a fourth-down play, one of three fourth-down plays the Oilers converted during the drive.
A pass interference call against the Chargers on a fourth-down pass earlier in the drive kept it alive.
Edison responded quickly. Two plays after the Ross-deCamp TD pass, Warren took a handoff at his own 47, started up the middle but found no opening, quickly shifted gears and cut to the right side. He found nothing but green turf in front of him, and raced untouched on a 53-yard scoring run.
With the score at 41-6 with 6:45 remaining, the game went to a running clock. Before time ticked away, Edison sophomore running back Jacob Marines scored on a 30-yard run with 54 seconds left.
"We did some nice things tonight," White said. "We're real happy with the win but, it's only one game. This league is tough. Newport [Harbor] got a big win [Thursday] night, and we go to their place next week. There's a lot of football left to be played."
Through the opening week of the Sunset League race, Edison, Fountain Valley, and Newport Harbor, each won their opener. Fifth-ranked Fountain Valley swarmed Marina, 40-14, Friday, and Newport Harbor on Thursday handed previously-undefeated and third-ranked Los Alamitos a 27-24 defeat in overtime.
Next Friday, Edison travels to Newport Harbor, Fountain Valley plays host to Huntington Beach, and Marina is home to Los Alamitos.
