It took awhile for it to get going, but once Ocean View found its running game in the second half of Friday's Golden West League encounter with Loara, there was no slowing the Seahawks.
Ocean View picked up a key league victory by routing the Saxons, 42-7, a win that kept the Seahawks in the thick of the league race and in second place, one game behind league-leading Segerstrom. They got the win by unleashing a run game in the third quarter that was spearheaded by quarterback Timmy Robinson and running back Travis Sparks-Jackson.
The Seahawks erupted for 21 third-quarter points to pull away from a 14-7 halftime lead.
"A couple of times we talked to Travis and Timmy, and we told them to take control out there," Ocean View Coach Harold Eggers said of two of his senior leaders. "We wanted them to lead, whether it was running the ball or getting the offense pumped up. They both did a nice job in taking that leadership role for us.
