Breakers took a big step for the 2017 Division 12 playoffs with a 40-21 victory over Estancia (2-7, 2-2) Friday, Oct. 27, at Guyer Field.

A good size crowd witnessed the Laguna offense rolling up 447 total yards, 21st all-time in Laguna history with quarterback Curtis Harrison completing nearly 80% of his passes and avoiding any sacks. Breakers need to have defeated Calvary Chapel (3-6, 3-1) this past Thursday, Nov. 2, to guarantee a playoff spot.

In the Estancia contest, Breakers took their initial possession 59 yards before fumbling the ball on the Eagle four.

On their next try it only took three plays to score with Adam Armstrong taking his first of two TD passes 32 yards for the first points. Handel’s extra-point kick was ruled wide. Laguna scored again on their third try going 54 yards in 10 plays with Harrison scoring the points. Again Handel’s kick was ruled wide. Breakers continued to dominate the Eagles defensively and scored again on their first try in the second quarter. On Estancia’s next scrimmage play, Sean Nolan picked off the pass attempt for a 25-yard score.

Breakers substituted after that and the Eagles took advantage to close the scoring to 26-21 early in the third period. Breakers engineered a 14-play drive to take a 33-21 lead and added an insurance score on their next possession to seal the win. Junior Sean Lythgoe continued to shine as the primary running back, gaining 115 yards on 20 carries.
