Warriors’ Late Drive Comes Up Short against Long Beach City, 38-36, in Coach Featherstone’s Last Game


Box Score 

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. – In his 31 years as head football coach at El Camino College, John Featherstone has surely had wilder games than the one played Saturday night, where a late comeback came up short on a missed field goal, allowing the Long Beach City College Vikings (9-1) to escape with a 38-36 win. The Warriors end the season with a record of 3-7, 2-4 in the National Central League.

Sophomore quarterback Jorge Hernandez (North Torrance HS) scored for the Warriors in the first quarter on a 4-yard rush before freshman kicker Nathan Hierlihy’s (Redondo Union HS) 19-yard and 40-yard field goals gave the Warriors the 13-7 edge after the first quarter.

Hierlihy added another field goal in the second quarter, and freshman Maurice Jones (Carson HS) counted a 79-yard pick-six to hold the six-point advantage going into halftime with ECC leading 23-17.

The Warriors were held scoreless in the third quarter with LBCC reeling off 21 straight points, but the momentum began to swing back in favor of ECC with the Vikings missing a field goal. An ECC interception and a LBCC injury led to Long Beach City fumbling a handoff in its end zone late in the game. Sophomore defensive lineman Taniela Lolohea (Hawthrone HS) recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown to cut the Vikings’ lead to 38-30 with 4:49 remaining.

After a big defensive stop, Hernandez threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to freshman wide receiver Dajuan Parham (Venice HS) to bring the Warriors within two points at 38-36. After a failed two-point conversion and unsuccessful onside, the Warriors made a big defensive stop, leading to a drive that that set up the 47-yard field goal attempt that came up just short with 10 seconds remaining. 

Hernandez finished the game with 283 yards through the air and 46 on the ground to go along with a pair of touchdowns. Sophomore running back Justice Anyanwu (Gardena HS) gained a team-high 47 yards, while sophomore tight end Colin Hindle (Redondo Union HS) led the team with 61 receiving yards. On defense, freshmen Deadre Brewer (Arleta HS) and Lewitt Savini (Taylorsville (UT)) combined for 27 tackles, 3 tackles for loss and a forced fumble.
