The start to the 2011 prep football season has been nothing short of incredible for Laguna Beach, which this week has a chance to do something that no Laguna team has done in 11 seasons: win five straight games.
The Breakers get that chance Friday when they travel to Fontana to take on Jurupa Hills. Kickoff is 7 p.m.
Last week, Laguna ran its record to 4-0 by overpowering Mary Star of the Sea, 55-26, in San Pedro. As has been their trademark all season, the Breakers did the majority of their damage on the ground. They rushed 480 yards and added 55 more through the air in scoring 55 points or more for the third time this season. Two Breakers went over the 100-yard plateau, with Drake Martinez rolling for 178 yards on 11 carries and Norton Penney for 140 on eight rushes. Both scored three times.
The run game also included 83 yards and a score on three carries from Robert Clemons and Nathan Lancaster banged out 52 yards and a touchdown on just two touches. Laguna Coach Mike Churchill said that offensive guards Blake Hester and Spencer Anderson were named the team's offensive players of the week for their "outstanding" play up front.
