Jon Beuerlein completed 9 of 11 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown and kicked a 37-yard field goal to lead Sunny Hills High School to a 31-0 win over Brea-Olinda Friday at Buena Park.
Beuerlein completed his first 6 passes for 77 yards as the Lancers (4-1) built a 14-0 halftime lead. Sunny Hills then put the game out of reach with 10 points in the third quarter, including Beuerlein’s field goal.
Beuerlein also got offensive help from Brian Pizula, who rushed for 99 yards in 13 carries, and Collins Soloman, who scored 2 touchdowns.
Sunny Hills (4-1) opened the scoring 5 seconds into the second quarter on Beuerlein’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Kight. The score, which came 9 plays after the Lancers took over at the Brea-Olinda 49 following a punt, was set up by a 20-yard Beuerlein pass to Pizula, which brought the ball to the Wildcat 10.
Three minutes later, Sunny Hills extended its lead to 14-0 on Soloman’s 60-yard touchdown run.
Brea-Olinda (1-4), which rebuffed a late first-half Sunny Hills scoring bid when Dean Snyder intercepted a Beuerlein pass at the Wildcat 20, saw Sunny Hills extend its lead to 21-0 with three minutes gone in the third quarter on Kenny Overby’s 3-yard run. Overby’s score capped a 63-yard, 9-play drive.
