The Ocean View High football team has been on nothing short of a roll since the first weekend in September.
Since dropping their opener at Western on Sept. 3, the Seahawks (5-1) have won five straight — all five by no less than 16 points. They'll attempt to run that streak to six Friday when they take on Loara in a key league game. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Glover Stadium in Anaheim.
Ocean View is ranked eighth in this week's CIF Southern Division poll. Two spots ahead of the Seahawks are the Saxons at No. 6.
Last Friday, Ocean View earned victory No. 5 by defeating host Orange, 30-14, in the Golden West League opener for both teams. The win was "special" in that it was the Seahawks' special teams that paved the way to victory.
"Our special teams stepped up against Orange," Ocean View Coach Harold Eggers said. "Mike Congelliere blocked a field goal, which was picked up by Colton Johnson and returned for a touchdown. Blake Walker punted the ball well, giving us great field position. Willy Jarus did great on the kickoff team and Brian Hernandez hit three field goals."
