The Laguna Beach High football team beat Big Bear 49-14 in its nonleague home opener on Friday night.

The Breakers, ranked No. 3 in CIF Southern Section Division 12, improved to 2-0 and Big Bear fell to 0-3.


Breakers quarterback Andrew Johnson passed for 208 yards and two touchdowns, and he rushed for a score.

“Everyone was just playing as a team, our safeties were coming down and doing their job and linebackers were filling in,” Johnson said. “It was just a really clean game and probably one of the best halves of football we’ve ever played. It was nice to finally beat them after these three years.”
