LAGUNA HILLS After turning the ball over six times last week, Laguna Hills went back to the basics.
The Hawks controlled the line of scrimmage and the clock on the way to a 27-7 victory over Woodbridge on Friday night in a nonleague game at Laguna Hills High.
“We are an old-school football team,” Coach Bruce Ingalls said. “We dominated both lines of scrimmage, and as corny as that sounds, anytime you do that you win football games. It’s that simple.”
The Hawks (2-2) ran the ball 54 times, finishing with 255 yards rushing.
With the score tied, 7-7, with 4:48 left in the second quarter, the Hawks faced a fourth-and-22 from the Warriors 32-yard line. Alex Salerno took a draw 32 yards up the middle to give Laguna Hills a 14-7 lead.
Ten players carried the ball for the Hawks, who threw just two passes in the first half.
Quarterback Tim Bellman’s second pass of the half was a 2-yard TD strike toMark Martindale, giving Laguna Hills a 20-7 lead with 29 seconds left in the half
