The Newport Mesa Seahawks Pee Wee White Team beat the Huntington Beach Oilers, 30-0, at Sage Hill School.
Tough defense was played by all the Seahawks. Big tackles were made by first-year players Will Gehl, Jake Jones and Mitch Haly. Defenders Blake Kormos, Kobe Benter and Sutton Barbato stopped the Oilers' running backs, often in their own backfield. When the Oilers tried to pass, Seahawk cornerbacks Stephen Menzia and Carson Poivre denied their receivers the ball, with Poivre grabbing an interception.
On offense, Danny Rogers, Will Karambelas, Berkley Bingham and Connor Brazeel opened huge holes all day for fullback Jack Genova and tailback Anthony Battista to run through. Battista had two touchdowns.
As for the air attack, quarterback Chase Garbers had his best day. Garbers completed several well-thrown passes, most notably a touchdown to tight end Nick Bauer and a perfectly timed chair pattern to speedy wingback Adam Freeman, who made a great catch on the play. Garbers also ran a long bootleg for another touchdown.
