Football (5-1)

Laguna went to the ground last Friday night in the 25th meeting between Calvary Chapel/Santa Ana and the Breakers as the senior rushed for a career high 186 yards scoring four touchdowns to lead the home squad past the previously undefeated and favored Eagles 42-7.

Will Bingham was very efficient completing 12 of 16 passes at quarterback including two strikes to Jacob Diver for scores but it was Arntz and the Laguna line that made the big plays.

Artnz’s first run from scrimmage after Diver returned the opening kickoff 25 yards was a 49-yard run. It took just five plays and a Ziggy Molteni kick to make it 7-0. Breakers scored on their second possession marching 46 yards in three plays with a Bingham to Diver pass play covering the last 40-yards for the score.

Breakers third try with the ball went eight plays ending in a Arntz score on the opening play of the second quarter.

Breakers led 35-7 at the intermission scoring on every possession of the first half.

David Dworakowski had three big pass receptions and Ryner Swanson continue to look sharp with his catches.

Rowen Johnson recovered another fumble and Bella Rasmussen saw plenty of action in the second half taking advantage of the great offensive line play to delight the crowd.
