Rustlers down Pirates, take victory bell
Golden West College freshman quarterback Raymond Huizar threw five touchdowns passes to power the Rustlers to a 33-17 victory Saturday against rival Orange Coast College in an East Division game at OCC's LeBard Stadium in Costa Mesa.
Huizar, who prepped at Pacifica High, completed 13 of 20 passes for 217 yards as Golden West won in the series for the first time since 2006 and took home the victory bell trophy that goes to the winner of the annual showdown. Huizar threw three touchdown passes to Aldodius Colquitt, the go-ahead score to Peter Adams and a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Chris Spencer.
The Rustlers trailed, 7-0, after the first quarter and 10-6 at the half in their homecoming game.
Golden West, which improved to 5-4 overall and 2-2 in East Division play, now leads the all-time series, 21-20-2. The Rustlers close out their conference and regular season Saturday hosting College of the Desert (4-5, 2-2) at 7 p.m. at LeBard Stadium.
