Laguna Beach could not get its offense in gear last Saturday in
its Pop Warner Football meeting with Saddleback, and their lack of
offense led to a 14-0 loss to the Golden Bears.
Saddleback scored touchdowns on two of its first three possessions
of the game and then kept the Seahawks off the scoreboard.
Despite giving up the two early scores, Laguna Beach dug in and
kept Saddleback scoreless the final three quarters behind the
defensive play of Lorenzo Torriero, Dillon Giaraffa and Devin Hands.
Laguna’s offensive highlights included a 26-yard pass play from
quarterback Trevor Pierce to Chris Hyden, a 17-yard gain on a reverse
by Hyden, and several 10-yard runs by leading rusher Kameron Pierson.
The Seahawks coaching staff named Hyden Laguna’s “player of the
game” for his offensive and defensive contributions.
Laguna will take on the Lakewood Longhorns Saturday in a 3 p.m.
kickoff at San Clemente High.
