Corona del Mar makes it look easy vs. Beckman


TUSTIN - Corona del Mar made quick work of Beckman at Tustin High on Friday night and cruised to a 33-7 victory behind Cayman Carter’s four first-half touchdown passes in a game that also featured senior kicker Grif Amies booting his way into the record book.

Amies broke the county’s single-season record when he converted his 17th field goal, a 27-yarder with 1:54 left in the first quarter. The previous county record of 16 field goals was held by Art Sorce (Newport Harbor) and Tim Hatcher (El Modena).



Amies added a 33-yarder with 16 seconds remaining in the first half to finish with 18 field goals on the season. He missed a 48-yard attempt in the third quarter.

CdM (8-2, 5-0) ends the regular season on a six-game winning streak, the latest victory all but assuring the team top seed in the Southern Division playoffs. CdM’s last loss came at the hands of Capo Valley, 24-7.

Beckman (3-7, 2-3) fumbled on its opening possession, and the Sea Kings wasted little time scoring their first touchdown, going 44 yards in three plays as Carter hit Bo St. Geme for a 21-yard scoring strike.

The next CdM drive was nearly identical to the first as it capped a three-play drive when Carter hit Troy Reese on a 7-yard fade route.

St. Geme’s next catch also went for a touchdown, this one for 41 yards, making the score 23-0.

Carter went 11-for-13 passing for 142 yards, St. Geme had seven catches for 108 yards, and Kai Wilson rushed for 128 yards.

The Patriots will have to rely on an at-large berth to crash the playoff party.
