Fourth-quarter rally dooms Renegades
Allan Hancock College scored 21 fourth-quarter points to beat Bakersfield College 35-28 at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 15.
The Renegades fell to 3-3, and put themselves in a really tough position to make the playoffs, and are three games behind undefeated El Camino in the National Northern Conference, while Hancock improved to 5-1.
Hancock was winless in conference play last year, and now, Hancock and El Camino, two teams who finished at the bottom of the conference, are a combined 11-1.
Quarterback Brian Duboski threw two touchdown passes, but threw two fourth-quarter interceptions, including one that came with 38 seconds left, sealing the game for Hancock.
Both teams were kept out of the end zone in the first quarter, but in the second quarter alone four touchdowns were scored between the two teams. Both offenses had over 400 offensive yards, with both running rampant against the other’s rush defense.
Running back Jalen Sykes continued his success on the ground for the Renegades, rushing for 138 yards, and wide receiver Darius Tubbs caught five passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns.
BC will head to Ventura to face the Ventura College Pirates on Oct. 22 in the first of a two-game road trip. The Renegade’s final home game will be Nov. 5 against Cerritos College.
