COSTA MESA – The North vowed this week to break the South’s dominance in the Brea Lions Orange County All-Star Game.

Offenses sometimes are not crisp in these Orange County All-Star Football games. And that is what we have here at Orange Coast College.
The North is driving here, with a first down at the North 49. Neil Pauu of Servite just got his fourth reception.
... a mess.
North quarterback Scott Lloyd scored on a sneak. The North lined up for the extra-point kick attempt, but illegal procedure was called (and some pushing and shoving ensued). Backed up 5 yards, the next attempt produced a high snap that was caught by kicker Derek Brush who was tackled after a short run.
So it is 6-6 wi
South 6, North 0
Kai Ross, South QB (Huntington Beach) 6 for 7, 48 yards.
Dominic Collins, South WR (El Toro) 3 catches for 32 yards.
Andrew Lopiccola, North RB (Servite) 7 carries for 25 yards.
Justin Allen, North RB (Mater Dei) 2 catches for 25 yards.
The game has been more entertaining than the score suggests.
We have seen a couple of interceptions, including one by the North's Deryck Fletcher (Fullerton) at the North goal line. He returned it to the North 31.
North quarterback Scott Lloyd (Fullerton) was getting spun around in the backfield when he heaved the ball backwards.
The North has struggled offensively, and its offensive mistake, the mishandled/high snap, gave the South the touchdown when Jack Bares (Tesoro) recovered the ball in the South end zone.
Quarterback changes for the second half: for the North, Scott Lloyd (Fullerton) replaced Dylan Osborne (Villa Park); Luke Napolitano (Corona del Mar) rep
The North recovered a South fumble at the North 10. A few plays later, North quarterback Dylan Osborne (Villa Park) in shotgun formation could not snag a high snap. The ball bounced into the end zone where Jack Bares (Tesoro) recovered it for a South touchdown.
The South went for two. Quarterback Kai Ross (Huntington Beach) threw an inco
