As the final seconds ticked away to end Thursday's Golden West League football game between Ocean View and Santa Ana, Ocean View football coach Luis Nunez gave a thumbs-up, turned and shouted, "good job," back at his players and coaching staff on the Seahawks' sideline, then headed toward midfield to exchange post-game handshakes with the Saints.
