NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Having played on nearly even terms with one of the elite teams in Southern California throughout most of the first half, things quickly unraveled in the third quarter for the Glendale Community College football team on Saturday night.
It's a quarter that Glendale college Coach John Rome would just as soon forget after he saw the Vaqueros commit three turnovers that were all cashed into touchdowns. In the process, the Vaqueros also lost starting quarterback Kevin Hunter to an unknown injury following an interception in which he made a tackle and was lost for the remainder of the contest.
"We felt very good with the way we played in the first half and then things changed quickly in the third quarter," Rome said after Glendale suffered a 41-17 nonconference home loss against Allan Hancock at Sartoris Field.
Hancock (4-0) held a 21-17 halftime lead, leaving Glendale (0-4) with hope that it might be in line for a possible upset. Less than five minutes into the third quarter, those hopes faded.
