Another defensive shutout, another victory.
The Huntington Beach Green Chargers remained undefeated in the 2010 Pop Warner Football season Saturday by shutting down the Yorba Linda Wildcats, 19-0, in Jr. Pee Wee Division action.
The teams, both hampered by 105-degree temperatures in Yorba Linda, came out slow but Huntington Beach (5-0) scored in the second quarter to break a scoreless tie. The game's first touchdown came on a 20-yard pass play from Griffin O'Connor to EJ Ginnis.
The Green Chargers struck twice in the second half to put the game away. The first touchdown came on a 50-yard run from Cameron Gonzales. Shaun Colamonico finished the scoring with a 60-yard dash to the end zone.
Huntington's rush offense, including Luke Hoggard, Ryan Carmichael, Jon Moreida, Xavier Salgado and Jayden Stout, pounded for key yardage and chewed up the clock throughout the game.
Defensively, the Green Chargers held the Wildcats (2-3) without a first down and negative net yardage and cornerback Kyle Drinnon had an interception.
Huntington puts its perfect record on the line Saturday when it travels to Aliso Viejo to face the undefeated Wolverines in a battle for first place in the division.
