Laguna sets school record for wins in a season
Paul had to turn it up in the adidas originals sixth to help the Breakers defeat Estancia for the second time in as many days.
Andres Hernandez led off the inning adidas originals with a single to left field.
Three batters later, Brodie Pearce singled to the same field for his second hit of the day. Sorensen decided to hold the runner at third base, instead of trying to cut the deficit to one.

“We definitely caught a break,” said Sorensen, who had runners on third and second with two outs.

Rios had the lone extra base hit against Paul. He doubled in the gap in right center field with two outs in the seventh.
The next batter Paul faced swung at the first pitch and popped up to end the game, allowing Laguna Beach to sweep the three game series against Estancia.
“We couldn’t have asked for really anything better from him,” Sorensen said of De adidas originals la Pena (2 3), who went the distance, allowing two runs and five hits, while striking out three and walking three. “It was either his best or his second best outing of the season.”
