WILMINGTON, Calif. – El Camino College scored the second most points in a single game in the Gifford Lindheim era in a 70-7 rout of L.A. Harbor Saturday afternoon at Seahawk Stadium.
The Warriors (2-1) spread out the scoring evenly, scoring 35 points in each half. The defense did not allow the Seahawks (0-2) to score until the fourth quarter when the Warriors were already up 63-0.
Saturday marked the second time the team has scored 70 or more points in a game in Lindheim's four-year tenure as head coach. The Warriors set a program record with 74 points scored against L.A. Southwest back on September 2, 2017 at L.A. Southwest.
Time of possession was nearly equal by the end of the game but the Warriors recorded 28 first downs compared to just 10 for the Seahawks. The Warriors also recorded 513 yards of total offense with 318 of those coming through the air.
Gotoy started and led the way with three TD passes while going 9-for-13 for 128 yards. Novello took the bulk of the snaps once the game was out of reach and went 13-for-16 for 180 yards.
The ground attack accumulated 195 yards with 10 different players recording a carry. Daniel Carmicle finished with the most carries, yards and rushing touchdowns as he gained 67 yards on seven attempts and found the end zone twice.
Reigning SCFA Special Teams/All-Purpose Player of the Week Robert Ferrel made a strong case to defend that title on Saturday, returning four punts for 201 yards including a 92-yard punt return for a touchdown, his second punt return TD in as many weeks. Ferrel also added two catches for 31 yards including a 25-yard touchdown reception.
The defense registered 62 total tackles on the day with 33 different players recording at least one tackle on the day. Jamari Adderley led the way with five tackles (two solo) and a forced fumble. The Warriors also kept up the pressure throughout the game with 14 quarterback hurries and two sacks for a loss of 11 yards. They also racked up 13 tackles for a loss on the day.
James Randolph provided the biggest defensive highlight of the day, recording the team's lone interception and returning it 25 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
The Warriors will return home on Sept. 28 and welcome Orange Coast to Murdock Stadium for a non-conference game. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
