HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA
Lots of top teams in the state were on display today at the Battle at the Beach hosted by the Edison Chargers, including 3 Sunset League programs. Edison, Los Al, and Corona Del Mar
Edison was off to a quick start winning their first 2 games against Cathedral Catholic and Chaparral headed into their bye. Would then go on to fall in game 3 to J Serra but would quickly respond and win against Santa Margarita to advance to the Gold Bracket against Mater Dei.
Los Alamitos was without Makai Lemon and fell in game 1 to St. John Bosco but showed lots of promise for the future. They would then respond the next 3 including winning a close one to Serra 24-15 in game 2 and beating Capo Valley and Warren to advance to the Gold Bracket against Mission Viejo.
Corona Del Mar would also be impressive almost beating the number 1 team in the country forcing Overtime against Mater Dei but would fall 27-21, would then go on to win their next 3 against North Kitsap, Bishop Amat, and Norco to advance to the Gold Bracket against J Serra.
GOLD BRACKET RECAP:

Los Al just couldn’t get it going against Mission Viejo as they would fall 28-13. Mission Viejo would then go on to beat Mater Dei and Bosco and win the tournament.
Corona Del Mar would fall as well to J Serra in round 1.
