HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA- On the campus of Huntington Beach HS at Cap Sheue Field with the Barons and the Oilers in a Sunset League Battle.
1st Quarter: As expected it was a fight from the very beginning as Fountain Valley would open the game up first on a recovered fumble in the end zone to open the game up 6-0. The Oilers though would answer right back from Tyler Young on a 65 yard touchdown to head into the 2nd tied at 6.
2nd Quarter: Oilers would keep things rolling as Daunte Bell would find AJ Vandermade in the end zone for the score to put HB up 13-6. Alan Valadez would save the game from being a 4 point game as he would get his 2nd field goal block of the night to keep the game to a 7 point game headed into the locker room at the half 13-6.
3rd Quarter: Oilers defense would stay hot all night tonight as Alan Valadez would get a fumble recovery on the 1st drive back from the half. Huntington Beach would only be able to turn that drive into a field goal by Jad Othman. Oilers lead 16-6. Nathan Tauanuu would help the Oilers out on a huge pick with 45 seconds left in the 3rd quarter.
4th Quarter: Daunte Bell and the Oilers would start off the quarter the way they needed too with a huge touchdown to AJ Vandermade to put the Oilers up 23-6. The Barons would get things going though and Noa Banua would find Nolan Olivares extra point would not be good as the Oilers would hang on with a huge hard fought battle over the Barons to win 23-12.
Huntington Beach returns home next Friday night to take on the Corona Del Mar Sea Kings at 7pm.
Fountain Valley goes on the road next week to take on the Newport Harbor Sailors at 7pm.
