Newport Harbor High School overpowered host Laguna Beach, 30-6, in the non-league opener for both teams Friday at Guyer Field.
Junior kicker Josh Klein accounted for 11 of Newport Harbor's points on field goals of 45, 36 and 35 yards and two extra points.

Three plays later, Mallett burst into the end zone to make it 6-0 with 5:30 left in the period.
