And run, the Breakers did, rushing for a team season-high 515 yards and eight touchdowns, in taking a 59-14 win from the Eagles.

It's been a rough few weeks for the Laguna Beach High football team. The Breakers, who have become accustomed to victories and high rankings over the past two years, enter the start of their Orange Coast League season this week with neither. A 35-19 loss to Northwood in their final nonleague game on Oct. 4, was the second-straight setback for the Breakers. The loss also cost them a slot in the weekly CIF Southern Section Southern Division rankings. At No. 7 last week, the loss to Northwood dropped the Breakers out of the rankings.

The first three weeks of the season have gone pretty much as expected for the Laguna Beach High football team. A big win here, another one there, then a shutout, have led to early success.

The Tartans are the top-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division poll and come into the showdown also 3-0.
