Community College Football Roundup : Andrews’ 195 Yards, Fullerton Defense Overwhelms Cerritos, 33-0
As dominations go, the job Fullerton College did on Cerritos Saturday night was about as good as it gets.
Jeff Andrews had 195 yards in 22 carries as Fullerton defeated Cerritos, 33-0, in front of about 2,000 at Fullerton District Stadium in the Mission Conference opener for both teams.
Fullerton (2-0, 1-0) rolled through the almost porous Cerritos defense for 358 yards in total offense--209 rushing and 149 passing.
But Cerritos found few gaps in the Fullerton defense. The losers were held to 65 yards in total offense--38 rushing and 28 passing--and their three quarterbacks completed but 4 of 22 passes and had 3 intercepted.
“I was really pleased with the way we played, especially the defense,” Fullerton Coach Hal Sherbeck said. “The defensive people were really excited and got after people.”
Fullerton led, 17-0, at the half and scored again at the 14:06 mark of the third quarter on a 6-yard pass from quarterback Victor Williams to Clipper Hackett. Fullerton’s defense provided the final two scores. The first came on a safety a few minutes after Hackett’s touchdown reception, when Jerrell Waddell was tackled in the end zone by most of the Hornet defense.
Then, with 1:09 left to play, Robert Speno recovered a fumble in the end zone for the final Fullerton score.
Andrews, a freshman from Diamond Bar High School, was most of the Fullerton offense in the first half.
Andrews broke a draw-play for a 69-yard touchdown run with 4:09 left in the first quarter to give Fullerton a 7-0 lead.
Fullerton then used two outstanding defensive plays to set up its second-quarter scores.
Craig Glatzhofer intercepted a pass on the Fullerton 37. The Hornets then went on a 10-play, 63-yard drive. The touchdown came on a 12-yard pass from Victor Williams to Mike Thomas with 10:57 left in the half.
Kirk Hainline added a 30-yard field goal as time ran out to give Fullerton a 17-0 lead.
The drive was set up by a blocked punt by Wes Flowers at the Cerritos 43.
