HUNTINGTON BEACH — Scott Meyer's led a high school football team to Huntington Beach High before as the head coach.
He returned Friday night in charge of a new program, Corona del Mar. The latest visit was just as successful and as close as the one four years ago.
Meyer survived another nailbiter in Huntington Beach, as the Sea Kings came back twice to beat the Oilers, 28-21.
"Our guys just never quit," Meyer said. "We just kept battling and kept battling with them."
The resiliency paid off for CdM, which improved to 2-0 in Meyer's first season with the school.
The game came down to the wire. Running back Erik Fisher scored the go-ahead touchdown with 25 seconds left to play. The one-yard run was the senior's second rushing score of the night.
Fisher finished seven yards short of his second straight 100-yard game. But the yards that mattered most were the 22 he recorded on the game-winning drive.
