Vince Legaspi, at 5-feet-9 170-pounds, looks more like a cornerback than a defensive lineman. But Friday night the Edison senior tackle looked much bigger when he keyed the Charger defense to a 3-0 victory over Fountain Valley in front of a capacity crowd of 7,600 at LeBard Stadium.
"Coach (Terry) Lorentzen told us to put a lot of pressure on their quarterback and . . . that's what we did tonight," Legaspi said. Legaspi got three of the Chargers' six sacks of David Henigan as Edison (3-1, 7-2) helped its playoff chances.
Edison's only score was set up after a fumble recovery by Mike Prince at the Fountain Valley 20-yard line. The Chargers could move the ball only six yards and settled for a 31-yard field goal by Eric Thayer in the first quarter.
Fumbles stopped two Edison scoring threats, including one inside the Baron 15-yard line in the fourth quarter. However, Fountain Valley was having worse luck moving the ball against the Chargers. The Barons (2-2, 2-7) missed a 24-yard field-goal attempt in the first quarter and never could mount much of an offense.
