The boys of Huntington Beach High School have inserted themselves in the debate about who exactly is the best team in California. The Oilers surprised visiting Orange Lutheran, which itself achieved a top Orange County ranking after wins over defending Southern Section D1 champions Mater Dei, and a close loss to top ranked Harvard-Westlake.
Huntington Beach coach Sasa Branislavljevic downplayed the win acknowledging that the Lancers had key athletes seated for much or all of the match. Regardless, the Oilers beat Mater Dei to win the prestigious North-South Challenge earlier in October and have strung together some key wins to now slide in to the OCVarsity.com top ranking for Orange County teams.
Dan Albano was there to cover the match and produce this highlights and interview package.
