Two teams with similar styles put their undefeated records on the line in the young season today when Edison hosts Dana Hills in a key nonleague game.
Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Huntington Beach High and the game marks the home opener for Edison, which has spent the first two weeks of the season on the road.
"We're excited to be playing a home game," Edison Coach Dave White said. "It should be a great game. Dana Hill's is a very good team."
Both the Chargers and Dolphins have rolled past their first two opponents and both have displayed potent offenses and stingy defenses. Edison comes into the game averaging 53 points and Dana Hills has scored an average of 50. Defensively, the Chargers have given up just one touchdown in two games.
For the second straight week, Edison cruised to victory. Last Friday, the Chargers routed host Long Beach Wilson, turning a 28-0 lead into an eventual, 48-7 victory. In his first game at quarterback, junior Chase Favreau threw for 173 yards and had touchdown passes to Bryce Campbell, Troy Baljeu (two) and Curren Provost. Donald Rice rushed for a touchdown and the Edison defense got into the scoring act, as well, with defensive ends Charles Burks returning a fumble recovery 40 yards for a score and Gavin Perdomo scoring on a 25-yard interception return.
