Chargers overpower Oilers

EDISON’S win over Huntington Beach sets up a showdown with Los Alamitos for the Sunset League title (Shutterstock).

The initial week of league play doesn’t necessarily crown a champion, but it often points the way toward the games which likely decide the issue.

On Friday, Edison (6-0) overpowered Huntington Beach 42-8 and set up the Oct. 13 game against Los Alamitos (4-2) as the contest which will see the Sunset League race settled.

Bolsa Grande (4-2) pulled off what might be considered a 14-8 upset of Santiago (4-2) Friday night, which results in an unexpected key Garden Grove League game next week against Rancho Alamitos (6-0) at Bolsa Stadium.

Marina (1-5) and Pacifica (3-3) shook off rough starts with strong wins on Friday. The Vikings blanked Ocean View (1-6) by 35-0 and Pacifica (2-4) bested Valencia (1-5) by 31-21 to offer some hope of stronger league runs.

The Mariners will face a tough Empire League obstacle next Friday against Cypress (6-0).

In the HB-Edison game, the Chargers had the issue settled by half-time with 42-0 lead. Parker Awad passed for three touchdowns and 300 yards for the green-and-gold. He also ran for a TD.

Carter Hogue had 79 yards rushing and one score.
