Fountain Valley 21, Los Alamitos 16
Fountain Valley had lost by one point to Mission Viejo, The Times' second-ranked team in the Southland, and by one touchdown to No. 14 Santa Margarita, but on Friday, the Barons finally landed the big one.
Taking advantage of seven turnovers, and scoring three touchdowns in the second half, No. 17 Fountain Valley beat top-ranked Los Alamitos at Veterans Stadium in Long Beach.
It snapped a 19-game winning streak for the Griffins (6-1, 1-1 in league play), who were ranked No. 2 in the state.
"We didn't deserve to win," said Coach John Barnes, whose team won the Southern Section Division I title last year. "They made plays, we didn't make plays.
"Life goes on."
Life will be a little happier today for the Barons (5-2, 2-0), who scored 14 points in the third quarter and another seven in the fourth, then held on in the final 4 minutes 31 seconds as heavy fog enveloped the field.
It came right after Joshua Jones scored from one yard to make it 21-14.
