Breakdown: Ocean View (7-0) hopes to continue the best start in program history as it meets Godinez (2-5) in a Pac 4 League opener … The Seahawks, ranked No. 2 in the CIF Southern Section Division 11 poll, have already matched their single-season record for wins with three regular-season games remaining … Ocean View’s defense forced five turnovers in last week’s 56-13 nonleague victory over Cerritos, including four interceptions, two of which were recorded by Seahawks junior defensive back Kermel Anwell … Anwell’s three interceptions this season tie him for the team lead with senior safety Naeco Logan … Hickman has yet to throw an interception this season and has at least two touchdown passes in each of the Seahawks’ seven wins … Godinez, which played in the Orange Coast League before the formation of the Pac 4 League, snapped a three-game losing streak with last week’s 34-28 win over Fairmont Prep.
