El Camino edged out in duel by Bakersfield

first_imgJC FOOTBALL: National No. 1 Warriors fall hard on Renegades’ last-second, sprawling catch. By David Saunders STAFF WRITER In a matchup between the nation’s top two teams, host Bakersfield College proved that it was one play better than No. 1 El Camino. Bakersfield tight end Seth Damron made a falling catch on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Bower with no time left on the clock to edge El Camino, 33-31, after Bakersfield started the drive on its own 18-yard line with 1 minute, 19 seconds left. Linebacker Tolu Moala had his back to the play and tried to break up the pass, but Damron made the catch over his shoulder. “It was a game that went both ways and we were fortunate to come out with a win,” Bakersfield coach Jeff Chudy said. The game was a reversal of the last time the two teams met, in the Southern California final last season when it was El Camino’s Corey Surrency who made a game-winning catch in overtime to cement a 23-20 win. “I thought our kids played well and played hard,” El Camino coach John Featherstone said. “(Bakersfield) made key plays down the stretch and a big play on the last tick of the clock like we did last year.” El Camino’s defense was victimized by big plays in the passing game the entire night. Bower completed six passes that covered more than 20 yards, including two on Bakersfield’s final drive. He finished the game completing 21 of 37 passes for 335 yards and four touchdowns. One of Bower’s touchdown passes had no business being caught. El Camino cornerback Lamar Chapman had a chance for an interception on a ball in the end zone that only he had a play on, but instead bobbled the ball and Bakersfield wide receiver Brandon Banks pulled down the ball for a third-quarter score. Of the five receivers Bower completed passes to, Banks was his favorite, bringing in eight catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns. “When a guy has that much time to throw in the shotgun, those kinds of things are going to happen. Their quarterback was impressive and made some good plays at crucial times,” Featherstone said. El Camino quarterback Boo Jackson also finished with impressive numbers – 18-for-27 for 298 yards and two touchdowns – but took a couple of sacks that stalled a second-quarter drive inside the Bakersfield 20-yard line. After advancing the ball to the Bakersfield 3-yard line, Jackson took sacks on consecutive plays. The result was fourth-and-goal on the 33-yard line and a punt. “I don’t know what it was,” Jackson said. “I should have put the ball up in the air because I knew we would have had three points, but I decided to run around. It was my fault.” El Camino running back Tavares Pressley also had a productive game, carrying the ball for 80 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. But he struggled in the second half, running for negative yardage on three of his six carries. One of those plays came on a third-and-4 on the Bakersfield 15-yard-line. After initially being hit at the line of scrimmage, Pressley tried to bounce outside and was tackled by outside linebacker Michael Smith for a 3-yard loss. “We made an adjustment at halftime to tighten down the edges. They were beating us with runs outside of the tackle box early, but we just settled down and tried to keep them from getting to the outside,” Chudy said. Chudy’s team looked finished when El Camino defensive end Josh Berard sacked Bower on fourth-and-4 with 2:47 left in the game. But after a 25-yard run by Pressley, the team was called for holding, had two incomplete passes and a short run and was forced to punt. Berard and King Manu each had 11/2 sacks for El Camino. The play on the defensive line was one of the bright spots for El Camino, which held Bakersfield’s leading rusher, Pat Patterson, to 69 yards on 17 carries. The loss was El Camino’s first since October of last year. “Sometimes all the hype gets into a player’s head,” Jackson said. “This was a real wake-up call.” [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
