SBCC falls to Santa Monica

Santa Barbara, Calif. -

Jerry McConnico ran for two touchdowns and threw for two more on Saturday, leading Santa Monica to a 38-17 football victory over SBCC at La Playa Stadium.

McConnico tossed TD passes of 34 and 47 yards as the Corsairs built a 17-3 lead on the second play of the second quarter. He then ran for a pair of 9-yard scores in a span of 4:18, stretching the lead to 31-3 at the half. McConnico completed 18-of-29 passes for 229 yards and ran for 66 yards.

Santa Monica, the two-time defending American Pacific Conference champion, won its 18th straight APC game to improve to 6-2 and 5-0 in conference. The Vaqueros (6-2, 3-2) dropped their second straight after a 6-0 start.

SBCC lost its starting quarterback, Jarred Evans, to injury late in last week’s game against L.A. Pierce and was also missing running back Orion Prescott and defenders Jackson Weed and Cameron Gamble.

Josh Martin was 15-30 passing for 277 yards and a 69-yard score to Giovanni Sanders. Sanders caught four passes for 155 yards.

“We had a fast start, we just didn’t finish,” said coach Craig Moropoulos. “We were inside the 10 a couple of times but you have to score. We didn’t do it and there’s no excuses. We have to get things done.
