HUNTINGTON BEACH - The Ocean View team that started out against Segerstrom Friday hardly resembled the one that ended the key Golden West League boys' basketball game. The Seahawks struggled early but made up for it by finishing with a flurry and routed the Jaguars, 96-58, at Ocean View. Ocean View outscored Segerstrom 56-21, over the second and third quarters, to storm to a commanding lead. Friday's win completed a perfect first half of league play for the Seahawks, ranked second in CIF Southern Section Division 2AA. They are alone in first place at 5-0. They also won their 11 th straight game to run their record to 17-3.

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.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Nothing went right for the Ocean View football team during the first half of Friday's Golden West League game against Westminster, and it was a long 24 minutes for the Seahawks. One thing the Seahawks had in their favor, though, was that there was no quit in them. Ocean View fell behind its neighboring rival by an insurmountable margin by halftime but played the Lions on even terms in the final 24 minutes. The effort wasn't enough to overcome a 40-point deficit, and it left the Seahawks saddled with a 54-14 loss in their homecoming game.

In forging a three-game win streak over the past 10 days, a run that had taken Ocean View to a share of first place in the Golden West League baseball standings, the Seahawks played with a focused purpose and didn't let little nuances bother them. Friday at Gibbs Field, the Seahawks got away from that mentality against visiting Orange. Ocean View fell behind early against the Panthers, rallied but came up a run shy, in a 4-3 loss. The Seahawks had runners in scoring position throughout, but couldn't sustain any type of big rally.
