Local teams shine on gridiron

Two Huntington Beach Jr. All-American Football teams — the Midget Division Oilers and Clinic Division Oilers — registered victories on the opening day of the 2012 season Saturday.

Huntington Beach 14, Beverly Hills 0: Getting solid play on both sides of the ball, the Oilers launched their campaigns with a shutout of the visiting Gators at Huntington Beach High.

Quarterback Dylan McCoy scored once and Reid Banish had a 60-yard gain to lead the rushing attack, and the line play of Chad Phillips, Jerry Hudson and Cade Siegrist, paced the offense.

Quarterback Nate Skorheim led the Oilers' balanced offensive attack, rushing for 42 yards on eight carries, including touchdown runs of one and 34 yards. Tailback Aden Eckenwiler also had a big day for the Oilers, rushing for 70 yards on 13 carries from the tailback position.
