Breakers roll again, rout Bolsa Grande

Mike Sciacca

The Laguna Beach High football team went into action on Thursday

night against Costa Mesa, just five days after pummeling Bolsa

Grande, with hopes of collecting its third victory of the season.


Results from that game, played at Newport Harbor High, were not

available by press time.

The Breakers hardly broke a sweat last Friday as they routed an

outmanned Bolsa Grande squad, 39-0, to improve to 2-0.


While the defense posted its first shutout of the season, it was

senior running back Donnelle Darling who went into the school record


Darling rushed for 146 yards on 24 carries -- his second, plus-100

yard effort in as many games -- with four, short touchdowns runs.

Those four touchdowns gave Darling 27 in three seasons and set a

new Laguna Beach school career record, eclipsing the previous school

mark of 25.


But Darling wasn’t the only Breaker player with a standout game.

Satar Abass was a key cog on defense. The senior accounted for six

unassisted tackles, one assisted tackle, two extra efforts and one

recovered fumble.

Marshall Paymard, a linebacker, starred on both defense and

special teams. The senior came up with five unassisted tackles, one

assisted tackle, one blocked punt and one interception.

“We had some very good individual performances and played well as


a team,” Laguna Beach coach Dave Holland said.

Another such performance came from quarterback Alex Wilson who was

8 of 18 for 201 yards with one touchdown and a two-point conversion
