The Cerritos College football team is looking to defend its territory on Saturday at 7 p.m., at the homecoming game against one of the top offensive teams in the state, Allan Hancock College.

The Falcons are coming off back-to-back wins and the team hopes to use the momentum to earn its first home win.

“Hancock is a pretty tough team,” said Falcons quarterback Morgan Fennell.

Fennell goes on to say, “If we play like we did in the last few weeks and keep the momentum rolling, we will be fine.”

The Allan Hancock College Bulldogs are rated at No. 3 in total offense and 2nd in rushing yards.

“We need this win to get into the playoffs, and because it’s the homecoming game,” defensive back Theodore Chambers, said.

Chambers adds, “(The Bulldogs) run the ball a lot but our defense is ready for the challenge.”

The Bulldogs beat Los Angeles Harbor College 50-44 on Oct. 6. LA Harbor College bested Cerritos College 35-20 in the first game of the season.

“It’s all falling in-line,” said Falcons head coach Frank Mazzotta.

“We beat these guys and we get our respect back. We’re getting better as team.”
