Laguna Beach's Martinez sets record in victory

SPECIAL TO OCVARSITY.COM

LAGUNA BEACH -- Running back Drake Martinez broke the Laguna Beach school record for touchdowns in a career as his team rolled over Pioneer of Whittier, 59-7, in a nonleague game Friday night at Laguna Beach High.

Martinez scored his 45th touchdown on the opening play of the third quarter when he took the kickoff 98 yards for a score. The Breakers (4-0-1) ran a trick play on the kickoff as Robert Clemons caught the ball, and Martinez ran behind him and took the pitch.

The Titans (1-4) couldn’t stop the Breakers offense and really couldn’t get anything going on offense other than in the first quarter. Running back Francisco Morales scored on a 2-yard run to tie the score at 7 midway through the first, but it was all Breakers after that.

The duo of Nathan Lancaster and Drake Martinez had huge games. Lancaster ran seven times for 109 yards with two touchdowns, and Martinez ran nine times for 93 yards with three touchdowns.

Lancaster opened the scoring early in the first quarter when he took a pitch on the right side and went 50 yards for the touchdown. After the Titans scored, Martinez scored on a 15-yard run and then scored on the next possession from 18 yards out. Martinez walked right into the end zone on his second score, dodging and running over the Titan defenders.

The Breakers defense was stellar all night picking off two passes, and not letting the Titans offense get going at all.
