Drury, Brea Olinda handle El Dorado

STAFF WRITER

PLACENTIA – Brea Olinda was in total control in a 35-3 victory over El Dorado in the North Hills League opener played Friday at Valencia High.

Wildcat quarterback Nick Drury completed his first seven passes, including two for touchdowns, and finished 8-of-13 passing for 165 yards and three scores.

Running back Michael Martinson rushed 17 times for 81 yards and two scores for the Wildcats (4-4, 1-0).

In a league in which teams play only three league games, every contest is crucial and the victory keeps the Wildcats on pace with El Modena, which defeated Canyon on Thursday in their North Hills League opener.

Brea Olinda takes on El Modena next week in a contest that almost guarantees a playoff berth for the winner.

“We played a lot better, but we’ve got a lot of work to do,” Brea Olinda coach Robb Perrance said. “We’ve got El Mo and Canyon right after them and those are two quality teams.”

Martinson scored on a 6-yard run on the game’s opening drive.

El Dorado (0-8, 0-2) came back and put together a quality drive, before settling for a 31-yard field goal from Nathan Jaquez.

The Golden Hawks then recovered the ensuing onside kick and drove to the Wildcats’ 4, but the 21-yard field goal try was unsuccessful.

Brea Olinda limited El Dorado to 81 yards of total offense and held the Hawks to four first downs in the second half.
