Breakdown: Ocean View looked unstoppable to begin last season. Through three games, the Seahawks had outscored their opponents 110-30, before suffering a one-point defeat to eventual CIF Southern Section Division 11 champion Katella … The Seahawks failed to make the Division 13 playoffs, but one of those first three wins was a 42-0 shutout against visiting Los Amigos in their opener … Ocean View opens against the Lobos again, who appear to have improved dramatically after beginning their 2018 campaign with a 19-17 win at Dana Hills last week. Tinoco threw for three touchdowns, including a go-ahead strike to Chavez with 2:30 remaining … Although the Seahawks lost several key contributors on offense, they return senior quarterback Noah Hickman. Ocean View opened as the top-ranked team in Division 11 preseason poll this season, but after being idle in Week 0, the Seahawks find themselves ranked ninth.
