Laguna scored 44 first-half points (the Breakers led at the break, 44-26) which also is a school record for first-half scoring (old record, 38 points, was set in a 1991 game against Ontario Christian).
Kicker Robbie McInerny also set a school record with eight point-after kicks and tied the school record for kicking points (11) in a single game. He had set the single-game PAT record (seven) last week against Webb.
"Scoring-wise, it was one of the craziest games I've been a part of," Laguna Coach Mike Churchill said. "They (Ocean View) scored first and it went back-and-forth from there. There were a lot of big plays and a lot of big scoring plays. We didn't run that many plays, actually."
The night was nothing shy of sensational for junior running back/safety Drake Martinez, whose superlatives were numerous. On offense, he rushed for four rushing touchdowns covering 48, 59, 65 and 60 yards, finished with 313 yards rushing on 15 carries to rank as the second-highest output in school history. He also caught a two-point conversion pass from quarterback Larry Stewart and scored 32 points — a school record.
Martinez was just as menacing defensively with one blocked extra-point and two interceptions, one of which he returned 39 yards for Laguna's final touchdown in a wild first quarter.
Prior to the start of the season, Churchill said that Martinez — whose brother, Taylor, is starting quarterback for the Nebraska Cornhuskers — had the "most raw talent on the team."
"What Drake did Friday was one of the best single individual efforts I've ever seen as a coach," he said. "Not only did he run wild on offense and have those two picks on defense, he also had four or five really big hits in the secondary for us. He's just a tremendous player."
