November 9, 2009: Cougars regroup in thriller — College of the Canyons shakes off poor first half, beats Pasadena City College in OT

Cougar Football

PASADENA — The College of the Canyons football team somehow overcame crushing fumbles, untimely penalties and a stagnant offensive effort in the first half to claw its way into overtime against Pasadena City College on Saturday night.

In overtime, Cougars quarterback Justin Morales threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Stephen London, and COC linebacker Evan Harrington followed it up with an interception to hand the Cougars a 29-22 victory over the Lancers in a National Division Northern Conference thriller at Pasadena City College’s Robinson Stadium.

It was the second time in as many seasons that COC (6-3, 3-2) upended Pasadena (4-5, 1-4) in OT.

That was the lead from a story in The Signal about COC’s overtime nail-biter versus Pasadena City College on Nov. 7. Also covering the contest was the Pasadena Star-News.

The now-defunct Canyon Call would normally have sent a reporter and a photographer to cover the game, but that ship has sailed.
