Laguna’s playoff chances for 2017 appeared over as Godinez once again is on track to capture the Orange Coast League title with a 38-14 victory over Laguna last Friday, Oct. 6, at Valley High School in Santa Ana.
The Grizzlies scored first on their second possession with a 90-yard run and Laguna hurt their chances to keep pace with two interceptions and a drive-killing fumble in the first half.
Shane Lythgoe showed off his Dugger heritage rushing for 68 yards on 12 carries. He caught three passes for 59 yards including a nifty 29 yard strike from Sean Nolan on an option play that took the hosts by surprise on the opening drive of the third quarter. Hank Syvertsen also ran up the yardage against the Godinez reserves, scoring late in the final period. Curtis Harrison was limited to 90 yards in passing, completing eight passes in 19 attempts with two interceptions.
