LAGUNA HILLS - Despite being outgained, 161-79, on the ground, El Toro made the most of six Laguna Hills turnovers to take a 24-0 victory at Laguna Hills High on Friday night.
El Toro (3-1) led, 7-0, heading into the fourth quarter, thanks to a late first-quarter drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown run from quarterbackBraden Olson, who pass for 61 yards and accounted for two TDs.
Olson was helped by his defense, which forced three fumbles and snagged three interceptions.
“It was an outstanding defensive effort tonight, we bent, but we didn’t break,” El Toro coach Robert Frith said. “Our defense has given up three points in the past two games, and they’ve kept us going even though our offense is still looking to get back on track a bit.”
After a 35-yard field goal by Wes Harris made the score 10-0 early in the fourth quarter, Olson found Cody Fields for a 24-yard TD pass down the right sideline that made it 17-0.
Laguna Hills (1-2) had its best chance to score late in the fourth quarter, but El Toro’s Ryan Lewis swiped an interception on the El Toro 2-yard line and ran it all the way back for a 98-yard touchdown
