FOR OCVARSITY.COM

IRVINE – Irvine improved to 3-0 for the second straight season with a dominating 40-6 nonleague victory over Estancia on Friday night at Irvine Stadium.

“We played well, but we still have a lot to improve on in the next week,” Irvine senior captain and lineman David Brito said. “I thought the line played really good tonight. Guys are stepping up.”

Irvine scored on three of its first four possessions and never looked back.

It also took advantage of several miscues by Estancia (1-2).

Irvine started the game with a 65-yard, five-play drive that ended with a 22-yard touchdown run by Josh Gray.

Estancia had a bad snap on a punt on its first drive, letting the Vaqueros take over at the Estancia 15.

Mikey Filia scored on the next play, a 15-yard run, and Irvine was up, 14-0, at 5:43 in the first quarter.

Early in the second quarter, Irvine's Tyler Young came up with an interception, and four plays later Wesley Kim scored from 2yards out to make it 21-0.

The Eagles put together a 13-play, 84-yard drive for their only score. Devon Jackson caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Connor Brown to finish it off. Chris Laurent did a lot of the damage, rushing eight times for 53 yards.

Irvine put away the game early in the second half.

After a three-and-out and a short Estancia punt, Filia scored on a 14-yard run. Filia finished with 57rushing yards and 52receiving yards.

Irvine's defense scored the team's final points. Brito scored his first-ever touchdown when he recovered a fumble in the end zone, and then Gary Renteira tackled Laurent in the end zone for a safety.
