BUENA PARK - On Friday night, Fullerton giveth away in the first half and taketh away in the second.

Leading 17-14, Sunny Hills (3-3, 0-1) took the second-half kickoff and marched to the Fullerton 35, but on third-and-7, Gregory Beamon stepped in front of a Kaleb Slaven pass at the 30 and returned the ball 70 yards down the left sideline for the score.

Beamon repeated the feat on the next Lancers series, picking off a pass at midfield returning the ball 31 yards. Three plays later, Scott Lloyd connected with Dallas Trillo for a 21-yard touchdown.

After forcing a Sunny Hills punt, Jesus Nodarse added a 4-yard scoring run to increase the lead to 35-17.

Fullerton (2-4, 1-0) was its own worst enemy in the first half, as two fumbles and two interceptions gave Sunny Hills the early advantage.

Patrick Murano scored on runs of 6 and 13 yards as the Lancers began their first four possessions in Fullerton territory.

Lloyd’s quarterback keepers of 1 and 4 yards trimmed the deficit at the half, the second score set up by a 78-yard pass play from Lloyd to Trillo.

Murano rushed for a game-high 112 yards for Sunny Hills. Damani Roberts rushed for 95 yards and Lloyd added 62 yards on the ground for Fullerton.
