The big game of the week Friday ended up being a big letdown for Edison High. The undefeated Chargers, ranked number one in the CIF-SS Division 3, took on Mater Dei, ranked first in the state, and were beaten 42-0 at LeBard Stadium on the Orange Coast College campus in Costa Mesa.
Griffin O’Connor was the top offensive performer for EHS, passing for 61 yards in the loss. The Chargers (4-1) have a week off before beginning Sunset League play on Oct. 6 against Newport Harbor.
Overall, only two of seven local (Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Westminster) area teams playing Friday night posted wins.
La Quinta and Pacifica each won. The Aztecs improved to 3-1 with their 27-20 win over Garey. Dylan Do rushed for 194 yards to lead the Aztecs. In Pacifica’s 42-7 win over Aliso Niguel, Ben Jefferson threw for 268 yards (and five touchdowns) and ran for 91 more as the Mariners saw their record go to 3-2.
Bolsa Grande fell to 1-4 with its 57-0 loss to Crean Lutheran, but will have a week off before opening Garden Grove League play on Oct. 7 vs. Rancho Alamitos.
Los Amigos (2-2) followed last week’s big win with a big loss, falling 46-13 to Dana Hills. The Lobos are next in action on Thursday hosting Saddleback at Garden Grove High.
The Sunset League completed a 0-3 Friday night with losses by Huntington Beach and Marina. Nick Welch threw for 101 years for the Oilers (2-3), but it was not nearly enough as HB lost 38-6 to San Juan Hills.
Marina (3-2) lost its second straight in falling 48-21 to St. Anthony High of Long Beach. The Vikes have a bye, then start league action on Oct. 7 hosting Los Alamitos at Westminster High.
