GLENDALE — After snapping a 17-game home losing streak, the Glendale Community College football team started a string of home wins behind the exploits of a dominant defense at Sartoris Field.
Visiting San Diego Mesa had a tough going from start to finish, especially on offense, as the Vaqueros picked up a 41-6 home victory Saturday night. GCC forced four turnovers, two coming on Jaelan Rising-Barnwell interceptions and had 13 tackles for a loss that included four sacks, as the Olympians averaged 0.8 of a yard on 33 rushing attempts.
“It’s a good feeling,” Glendale Coach John Rome said of starting a home winning streak, “we just have to keep getting better one game at a time.
“I am very proud of the defense. We’re young; we start 10 freshmen or players that haven’t played at their position before. I’m glad they’re improving. We have good team speed.”
