Laguna 48, Ocean View 14

Fields and Bingham Lead Homecoming Victory

Tyler Field proved unstoppable as the senior ran for 170 yards on seven carries scoring five touchdowns as Laguna rallied to a 48-14 win over the Sea Hawks from Ocean View to clinch at-least a tie for the Golden West Conference Pac 4 League title.

The game opened at Guyer Field before an overflow homecoming crowd with the visitors returning the opening kickoff 54 yards to set up a quick drive. Three plays and a two-point conversion found Laguna down 8-0 as visions of a third straight Sea Hawk upset loomed in the minds of many. Ocean View won 28-21 last spring and 27-20 in 2019.

It took only one play on the ensuing possession for Laguna to score as Will Bingham hit Jacob Diver on a 45-yard pass play for points. Ziggy Molteni was back at his kicking role connecting on his first of six successful points-after-touchdown.

Breakers then held Ocean View to three plays and negative yardage thanks to pressure by Micah Chavez and   James Golden giving Laguna their second possession. Breakers engineered an eight-play drive with the yards coming on four pass plays before Tyler Fields scored on a one yard run. Laguna scored again on their next possession and never looked back.

Tyler Fields electrified the crowd with scoring runs of 20, 85 and 45 yards. The final Laguna touchdown for the evening was an equally spectacular 72-yard pass play from Will Bingham to Luke Degner.

Rush: Fields 7-170, Rasmussen 4-20 Rec: Degner 8-145, Swanson 4-60, Fields 2-20, Freeman 1-8, Diver 3-88, Rasmussen 1-5 Pass: Bingham 23-19-0 326 yards 2 TDs 230.40 rating Interceptions: Garwall, J Arntz

Game Note – Tyler Fields 85-yard run was tied for the sixth longest in Laguna’s 87-year football history.

Degner’s 72-yard TYD ranks 23rd all-time in long touchdowns by pass.
