The battle for the Sunset League football title Thursday night at Sheue Field was spectacular, but also spectacularly one-sided.

Los Alamitos defeated Edison 52-27 to move into the driver’s seat in the league race with a 3-0 record (6-2 overall), while Edison (7-1) suffered its first defeat of the season, and slipped into second place at 2-1.

Parker Awad was a one-man-team for the Chargers, but even his heroic efforts weren’t enough. He ran for one score and passed for three more, ending up with 255 yards in the air, but Edison was playing from behind almost all night and never got close.

Next Friday, Edison will be playing its traditional rival Fountain Valley and will close out the regular season againsCorona del Mar on Oct. 18.

In other high school football action, Katella (3-5) opened Big 4 League play with a 38-20 win over Marina, setting up a potential showdown against Garden Grove (6-1 so far) next Friday.
