Football: 1-6 – Laguna’s Homecoming was spoiled by Calvary Chapel Friday night, 42-47.

Laguna made it close after taking the second half kickoff. LBHS marched down the field with quarterback Austin Paxson connecting with Travis Clawson from 12 yards out making it 21-20.

The second half belonged to the Eagles whose offense was potent and outmatched the Breakers all night. Their first punt came in the fourth quarter.

Norton Penney had a big night despite the loss. The senior running back led the team with 85 yards rushing and receiving with 73 yards. He scored Laguna’s final touchdown returning a kickoff 97 yards in the fourth quarter.

Michael Hyden scored a rushing TD and had 68 yards on the ground.

Paxson and his favorite target Chris Paul hooked up for an 18-yard touchdown early but that would be the only pass Paul was able to catch all night. Paxson was 16-for-38, 237 yards, two TDs and two interceptions. One of those interceptions was returned 45 yards for a Calvary TD and 14-0 lead in the first quarter.

Thurston students Aaron and Shira Alcouloumre try out new fountain

On Saturday, a new drinking fountain was dedicated at the Laguna Day Worker Center (LDWC).

Thurston students Shira (12) and Aaron (13) Alcouloumre purchased the fountain with funds they raised as part of their Bnai Mitzvah project. The “Hi-Lo” Haws double-head fountain was installed by workers from the LDWC and will allow laborers to fill water bottles before they head off for a day of work.

Shira and Eric’s parents, Annee and Eric, distributed 50 water bottles donated by Hoag Hospital Emergency Department to the project.

Shira and Aaron have been helping Laguna day workers for more than a year bringing Panera bakery products every Sunday, passing out blankets and purchasing and distributing Christmas gifts for families.

They are now collecting winter coats for the workers, and if anyone would like to help, by donating a coat or funds for their purchase, please call (949) 637-8412.
