Fullerton’s Murphy Gets 100th Career Victory
Prescott Hill’s 25-yard touchdown run on Fullerton’s second play in overtime lifted the Hornets over Golden West, 30-24, and gave Coach Gene Murphy his 100th collegiate victory in a Mission Conference Central Division game Saturday at Orange Coast College.
Hill rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns in 31 carries and kicker James Zurn made a 22-yard field goal as time expired in regulation to force overtime for Fullerton (2-5, 1-1 in the division).
Golden West (0-7, 0-2) had the first possession in overtime, but Fullerton’s Albert Lopez intercepted a pass by J.D. Stern, who completed 22 of 42 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns.
Golden West took a 24-14 lead after Stern completed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Chris Gonzalez with 4 minutes 5 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
But Hill scored on a 33-yard run for Fullerton to make it 24-21 with 10:14 remaining in the fourth before Zurn kicked the tying field goal.
