It didn't take the Bolsa Grande football team long to figure out that it was in for a long night Friday against Santa Ana. Alfred Guidry broke a 59-yard run on the Saints' first play from scrimmage, and Guidry rushed for 234 yards and four touchdowns in a 36-6 nonleague victory at Santa Ana Stadium. Guidry's opening run might have been his most impressive. After finding little running room up the middle, Guidry escaped and went down the right sideline to the Bolsa Grande seven.
