Hanley’s 6-yard run capped a 50-yard drive that lasted 1:52 and during which he touched the ball on all four plays.

The Seahawks (7-4) advanced as far as the Brea Olinda 5-yard line on their second drive of the night, but were unable to score when Hector Calderón missed a 22-yard field-goal attempt.
Greg Tocchetti led Ocean View with 43 yards on nine carries, and his brother, Cory, had three catches for 39 yards.
