Eric Lo likes the direction his Huntington Beach Oilers are heading.
Since opening the prep football season Sept. 10 with a loss to Corona del Mar, the Oilers have been impressive in their past two outings. First, they held down former Sea View League nemesis Foothill. Last week, they smothered an Aliso Viejo offense that possesses one of the top passing games in Orange County.
With consecutive wins in the books, Lo is looking for his Oilers to continue that trend Friday when it hosts Westminster at 7 p.m. at Sheue Field.
It's the Oilers' homecoming game.
"I think we are playing really well right now," he said. "Our effort has been great on both sides of the ball. The kids have really focused on their assignments and it's paying dividends. I hope we can continue to play that way this week against Westminster."
Huntington is coming off a 44-3 pasting of Aliso Viejo. The Wolverines had been potent through the air in their three previous games and came into the Sept. 23 game averaging 43 points. But the Oilers shut down the spread and came up with four interceptions. Chris Ogilvie and Zach Hadlock each had two picks, Ogilvie returning one 45 yards and Hadlock racing 94 yards with another.
