The night may not have been fit for man or beast, but it was perfect for a machine. The Bolsa Grande scoring machine.
Bolsa Grande slipped and slid to its 18th consecutive victory, the longest winning streak in the Southern Section, beating Los Amigos, 42-6, Thursday night in Garden Grove Stadium. The victory assures the Matadors (9-0, 6-0) of the Garden Grove League's top playoff berth and at least a tie for the league championship.
On a night when the amount of mud caked on jerseys indicated scoring ability, Travin Lui and Damon Fisher, the county's second- and third-leading scorers, were the dirtiest players on the field.
Lui's first-half touchdown runs of 1 and 12 yards seemed tiny compared to those of his teammates. Ricky Lepule set the long-run tone of the evening with a 76-yard scoring run in the first quarter and Shannon Valdez added a 63-yard touchdown romp in the second quarter. Bolsa Grande led, 28-0, at halftime.
