Breakdown: Ocean View (0-1), under first-year head coach Luis Nunez, is playing a second-straight Orange Coast League opponent in its home opener against Estancia (1-0) ... The Seahawks fell on the road to Calvary Chapel, 14-7, in their opener Sept. 1 at Jim Scott Stadium ... The Seahawks lost a bulk of their offense from a year ago including All-CIF quarterback and MVP of the Golden West League, Timmy Robinson, and top running back and all-league player Travis Sparks. Also gone is last year's GWL Lineman of the Year, Ben Sumner ... Junior running back Daniel Valencia, who missed the Calvary Chapel game, is questionable for Friday. Senior running backs Kyle Langley and Garrett Hoffman combined to rush for 225 yards in last week's loss ... Nunez said the Seahawks "should be" breaking out all-new, gold home uniforms for the game ... Estancia has climbed from fourth, to No. 3, in this week's CIF Southern Section Southern Division poll ... The Eagles are coming off a 17-0 shutout of Loara in a game that was scoreless at the half ... Senior running back Robert Murtha rushed for 166 yards and a touchdown in the win ... Senior strong safety DeionTe Haywood scored the other Estancia touchdown on an interception return.
