You've got to hand it to the Fountain Valley High defense. With the Baron offense sputtering throughout the night Friday, it was the defense that turned things around against visiting La Mirada and sparked a 16-7 nonleague win before 4,000 at Huntington Beach High's Sheue Field. With the previously-unbeaten Matadores threatening to pad its 7-3 halftime lead late in the third quarter, Fountain Valley strong safety Casey Clark came up with the play that ignited the Barons.

Mike Sciacca Despite having a five-man roster for its game Sunday against La Mirada, the South Huntington Beach Chargers still had more than enough firepower to hand the host team a one-sided setback, 70-35, in boys' National Junior Basketball action.

Casey Becker scored 14 points, Thomas Marcin and Michael Hardwick each scored 12 points and Tim Golden contributed nine for the Chargers, who return home Sunday to host Fullerton in a 1:15 p.m. tip-off at Edison High.

Mike Sciacca, Independent First, came the fire. Now, comes the frying pan. When Fountain Valley High takes on La Mirada Friday night in the Independent's Game of the Week, the Barons will be playing a top-ranked team for the second consecutive week. Their preparation for the Matadores, ranked first in the CIF Southern Section Division VI poll, began last Saturday against Carson, the L.A. City Section's reigning 4-A Division champion. Fountain Valley Coach Eric Johnson wanted a tough nonleague schedule, and it couldn't get any beefier than the one-two punch of Carson and La Mirada.

Behind the solid blocking of the offensive line consisting of Seth Allen , Shawn Chisholm , Ryan Easterday , Anders Palmquist and Keilan Lefaoseu and a stingy, hard-hitting defense led by Caden Kendle , Jordan Ginnis , Zeke McCreight , Joey Gentilella , Connor Provost , Jaxon Price and Rex Campbell , the Green Chargers cruised to the win.
