Second-seeded Irvine excelled in every facet of its game and scored a 41-14 victory over top-seeded Moreno Valley Canyon Springs.

Field position, instead of field conditions, dictated Irvine's 41-14 romp over Moreno Valley Canyon Springs in the Division IV final Saturday night at Orange Coast College. Irvine's defense, led by Chuck Gates and Geoff Hatcher, took advantage of the slippery field, forcing four first-half turnovers, to turn the contest into a rout early. It allowed the Vaqueros to record their third consecutive CIF championship. "The whole defense was really pumped up," Gates said.
