Freshman running back Francisco Baron broke off a 47-yard touchdown for Laguna Blanca’s only score in a 55-8 loss at Coast Union in the Owls’ 8-man football opener on Friday night in Cambria.

“The guys played hard,” said coach Shane Lopes. “It was the first game for half of our starters.”

Middle linebacker Vincent Vesterguard made tackles all over the field and Brian McClintock played well at outside linebacker. He also made some big pass receptions on long third-down conversions.
