BREA – Brea Olinda erupted for 27 points in the second quarter as it trounced Ocean View, 34-0, in a CIF-SS Southern Division first-round playoff game Friday night at Brea Olinda.
Billy Hanley rushed for a game-high 118 yards on 10 carries with three touchdowns for the host Wildcats (6-5), who took a 14-0 advantage with 4:32 remaining in the first half on Hanley’s second score. 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.
Gavin Saucedo widened Brea Olinda’s lead to 20-0 less than a minute later on a 35-yard interception return. The point-after attempt from Matteo Miralaie failed.
Michael Martinson took control in the Wildcats’ final drive of the opening half, carrying the ball on all three plays and sealing it with a 39-yard scoring run with 36 seconds left before halftime.
Martinson finished with 76 yards on six carries.
Hanley’s first touchdown, a 65-yard run, came 3:57 into the second quarter to put Brea Olinda up, 7-0. Sophomore Noah Rivera’s 86-yard punt return early in the second half set up Hanley’s third score, from 1 yard out.
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.
The Wildcats next play at top seed Garden Grove, the Southern Division runner-up in 2013 and 2012, in a second-round game next week.

BREA – It wasn’t a thing of beauty, but Brea Olinda’s 18-0 victory over visiting El Dorado on Friday night was good enough to secure a second-place finish in the North Hills League.
The Wildcats (5-5, 2-1), who advance to the Southern Division playoffs, mustered just over 200 total yards on offense and were penalized heavily, but the defense was dominant and forced six turnovers by the Golden Hawks (0-10, 0-3).
Nick Drury’s 24-yard scoring strike to Matt Christ gave Brea Olinda a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Billy Hanley jogged in untouched from 5 yards out on the first drive of the second half to extend the Wildcats’ lead to 15-0.
Matteo Miralaie added a 34-yard field goal for Brea Olinda in the fourth quarter.
“They (El Dorado) did a good job of stunting and blitzing, and it was hard to replicate in practice,” Brea Olinda coach Robb Perrance said. “We talk about the three seasons in football and to improve weekly, and we’re doing that.”
Drury finished 7 of 12 for 106 yards and the score.
“Our defense was great tonight, and I think we got production from just about everyone,” Drury said.
Daniel Bucaro was the lone offensive bright spot for El Dorado, rushing for a game-high 93 yards on 20 carries.
Jonathan Laverde and Malik Campbell recovered fumbles for Brea Olinda, while Hanley picked off the Golden Hawks’ Dominic Martinez.
Austin Shear, who replaced a struggling Martinez at quarterback for El Dorado in the fourth quarter, was 3 of 3 for 58 yards before leaving the game with concussion symptoms.

ORANGE – A big gamble paid off for Canyon in a key North Hills League game on Thursday night, and the Comanches came away with a 22-21 overtime victory over Brea Olinda at El Modena High School.
The victory gives the Comanches (3-6, 2-0) at least a share of first place and and a berth in the Southern Division playoffs with one game remaining.
The Wildcats (4-5, 1-1) will need to win their last game, next week against El Dorado, to have a chance to reach the playoffs.
But Canyon’s Noah Fairyniaz blocked the potential winning extra point, and the game went to overtime.
Brea Olinda took possession first and needed just one play for Drury to connect with Noah Rivera for a 25-yard touchdown and a 21-14 lead.
Canyon took possession and scored on an 8-yard pass from Jason Harmon to Trace Hobbs.
Instead of kicking the extra point and sending the game into a second overtime round, the Camonches went for the two-point conversion. Harmon passed to Noah White, ending the game.
Harmon completed 18 of 28 passes for 179 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 98 yards on 17 carries.
Canyon took a 14-0 first-quarter lead on a 29-yard pass from Harmon to Charlie Treanor and a 7-yard scoring pass from Harmon to Daniel Casas.
