Huntington Beach High withstood a late charge by San Clemente in a heated prep surf competition last weekend at the Huntington Beach Pier, and the Oilers were able to hold on for a 71-70 victory over the Tritons in the National Surf League's Red Bull High School Cup. Huntington took a four-point lead into the fourth quarter where San Clemente scored some top waves to get back into contention. Trevor Sanders landed a huge front side alley-oop air followed by two huge snaps, moves that earned him the game's Most Radical Maneuver award.

A solid combination of a southern- hemi swell filling in and west wind swell gave the surfers some 3- to 5-foot clean conditions to work with, nothing like the stormy conditions that were dealt the first time around forcing a postponement about a month ago. The San Clemente High School Tritons took advantage in their home turf sending five surfers to the six-man final.
