They didn’t receive coupons for a free drink or per diem for a meal, but the Oceanside High School varsity football team made its 90-minute trip to Olympian worthwhile with the sweet taste of victory, downing the Eagles 33-3 in non-league action Friday night.
The Pirates improve to 4-1 overall and are headed on the road again this Friday when they head up Highway 78 to meet Mission Hills in a key Avocado League showdown.
Against Olympian, quarterback Jakob Harris had his best game of the year, completing 15-of-23 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns. Harris’ scoring strikes were all to receiver Nicholas Williams (38, 10 and 46 yards). Slot receiver Rich Jaime was also key in the passing game with 5 catches for 100 yards. Running back Kavika Tua (12 carries, 115 yards) had touchdown runs of 2 and 62 yards.
Defensively, the Pirates were dominant, recording eight quarterback sacks and seven tackles for loss. Kiki Laie and Eric Russell recorded multiple sacks, while Canon Belew had his first sack of the season. Trejan Apodaca also had an interception in the first quarter to spark the Oceanside.
