El Camino 26, Pasadena 20--After one half, El Camino had shown no signs of snapping out of the football malaise that had become the 1991 season.

Thirty minutes later, the Warriors left the field with their biggest victory of the year--a come-from-behind upset of Pasadena in front of 2,610 at Pasadena's Horrell Field.

El Camino (4-4 overall, 3-3 in the Mission Conference) scored all 26 of its points in the second half to hand Pasadena (6-2, 4-2) the loss.

El Camino tailback Mark Harper rushed for two touchdowns and 107 yards and quarterback Jerry Singleton overcame three first-half interceptions to finish 17 of 25 for 196 yards.

Defensively, the Warriors held Pasadena's high-powered offense in check, limiting tailback Darick Holmes to 15 yards on seven carries and quarterback James Malbrough to five of 25 passing.

Down, 13-0, at halftime, El Camino scored on Harper's two-yard run, then claimed the lead when Singleton and flanker Fred Stafford teamed up on a 54-yard pass play.

The Warriors increased their lead when Harper took Singleton's pitch and passed 27 yards to Latario Rachal.

El Camino scored again on Harper's eight-yard run.

Pasadena cut the deficit to 26-20 on Malbrough's seven-yard pass to Lamont Peters with 35 seconds remaining. The Lancers failed to recover the onside kick and El Camino ran out the clock.
