ECC rolls to big win

El Camino College’s football team bounced back from its loss to Ventura by blowing out San Bernardino Valley College 52-18 in a non-conference game last Saturday.

After nearly 11 minutes of a scoreless duo, the Warriors quickly broke the game open by scoring 24 points in about a three-minute span of the first quarter.

It started when Mark Waronek connected on a 30-yard field goal. On the pursuing kickoff, the ball was fumbled away to Jocob Kabolo who returned it 16 yards for the touchdown. The Warriors led 17-0 when Stephen Bradford, Jr. scored on a 10-yard run. San Bernardino’s next drive didn’t last long as Justin Evans stripped the ball from Freddy Fletcher and ECC had the ball at the San Bernardino 18-yard line. On the first play, Brian Santana-Fof scored from there for a 24-0 lead.

The Warriors would lead 38-6 at halftime and led 52-6 after three periods before San Bernardino scored two TDs against El Camino reserves.

ECC (2-1) rushed for 255 yards as a team; the third straight game that the Warriors ran for more than 200 yards. They lead Southern California averaging 242 yards rushing per game. In three games, the Warriors rushed for 726 yards.

El Camino visits Fullerton College at Fullerton High School Saturday at 6 p.m.
