DEFENDING CHAMPIONS MAKE A STATEMENT – The top ranked Defending Champions of CCCAA Football – the FULLERTON COLLEGE HORNETS – came out of the gate like men possessed. The Hornets welcomed the SANTA ANA COLLEGE DONS and were less than gracious hosts. Fullerton College led 20-7 in the 1st Quarter and 42-14 by Halftime enroute to a SEVENTY-SEVEN to TWENTY-EIGHT blowout of the Dons.
NUMBER TWO AND THREE ROLL AS WELL – Not to be outdone, the number 2 team in the rankings – the AMERICAN RIVER COLLEGE BEAVERS – utterly annihilated the visiting DIABLO VALLEY COLLEGE VIKINGS (should be the Green Devils) to the tune of SIXTY-SEVEN to NOTHING ### And the 3rd ranked BUTTE COLLEGE ROADRUNNERS shut out their guests the SANTA ROSA COLLEGE BEAR CUBS by a final tally of 51-0.
UPSETS IN THE RANKINGS – The (13) COLLEGE OF SAN MATEO BULLDOGS thoroughly spanked the (11) MODESTO COLLEGE PIRATES in a 47-7 yawner ### Meanwhile the (12) LANEY COLLEGE EAGLES stunned the (10) CITY COLLEGE OF SAN FRANCISCO RAMS in their own house by a score of 16-14 ### And the YUBA COLLEGE FORTY-NINERS upset the (17) MONTEREY PENINSULA COLLEGE LOBOS 28-26.
PSST! NOBODY SCORE IN THE SECOND HALF. PASS IT ON! – The game between the SAN JOSE CITY COLLEGE JAGUARS and the visiting GAVILAN COLLEGE RAMS was an odd little affair. A 7-7 1st Quarter tie became a 14-7 advantage for the Jaguars headed into Halftime. The defenses took over from there, with the result that 14-7 wound up being the final score as well.
