Huntington Beach tight end Tony Gonzalez caught eight passes for 163 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown reception, in the Oilers' 20-14 victory over Long Beach Wilson.

LATE HEROICS

Marty Sprong kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired, capping a 10-play drive that got Marina past El Rancho, 24-23.

Cesar Correa sacked Saddleback quarterback David Ruvolo on a two-point conversion attempt with 2 minutes 3 seconds to play to preserve Santa Ana Valley's 10-9 victory. Moments earlier, Ruvolo had capped a 17-play, 77-yard drive with a 10-yard scoring pass to Gilbert Guzman.

SHOWDOWNS

Bradford Street Bragging Rights: The annual Placentia city championship game pitting Valencia against El Dorado had become one-sided over the past four years with Valencia outscoring El Dorado, 125-18, in four victories. But El Dorado was dominating in a 31-3 victory marking the first time the Golden Hawks had between their neighbors since gaining a 10-6 win in 1986.

ONE-UPMANSHIP

Sunny Hills' Eric Smith locked up the Orange County "single point" title for 1992 during the team's 36-9 victory at Edmonton (Canada) Ross Sheppard. The game was played under Canadian rules, which provide for one point for a kick--kickoff, field goal or punt--that goes into the end zone and is not returned. The Ross Sheppard return man elected not to bring Smith's opening kickoff out, conceding a point--and a 1-0 lead that is almost certainly unprecedented in county football history--to Sunny Hills.

The game was played on a 110-yard field, with 25-yard-deep end zones and just three downs to go 10 yards instead of four.

NOTEWORTHY

Cypress' Wes Merriweather handled the ball only three times, but he took the opportunity to gain 168 yards, helping the Centurions to a 21-7 victory over Savanna. Merriweather scored touchdowns on a 91-yard run and a 71-yard pass play.
