Football Roundup: Interceptions key in Hamilton’s win over University; Fairfax gets first home win

Hamilton’s Jericho Flowers knew that a victory against University would keep the Yankees on top of the Western League standings and had a simple message for the rest of the conference on Friday afternoon.
“We wanted to beat the team that beat Venice,” Flowers said.
That is exactly what happened as Hamilton had two key interceptions deep in their own territory to kill potential go-ahead scores by University in a 19-13 victory to take sole possession of first place in the conference.

Football: Beverly Hills loses late lead to Hawthorne; still winless in league

Beverly Hills running back Rashad Ysaquirre 36-yard blast up the middle gave the Normans a 23-19 lead in the fourth quarter but Hawthorne scored 21 unanswered points to beat Beverly Hills 40-30.

A roughing the passing penalty on Santa Monica after Lawndale‘s desperate hail mary fell incomplete as time expired proved deadly for the Vikings.

Football: Big games today could determine race for the Western League title; Brentwood starts tough league slate

It was suppose to be the biggest game of the westside this season. In front of Time Warner Cable’s television camera, fans were going to see if Palisades could end Venice‘s longtime conference winning streak.
That was until University pulled off the upset last week ending the Gondoliers streak at 43 games.
Now Palisades is viewed as the frontrunner for the Western League title and a win over Venice could put the Gondoliers at a surprising 0-2 league start.

JC Basketball: SMC post flyer for open tryouts; earns head coach Jenkins one-game suspension

Posting a flyer for open tryouts to a team is usually used by high schools and four-year universities to find hidden talent on campus. However for Santa Monica College men’s basketball head coach Jerome Jenkins, that benign act earned him a one-game suspension for illegal recruiting.

JC Football: Turnovers, inability to stop the run hurt SMC in loss to LA Harbor

On any given Saturday any team can be beat. That was the message Santa Monica College head coach Gifford Lindheim told his team after a surprising 33-27 loss to LA Harbor on Saturday in a rare midseason non-conference game.
SMC had a chance to cut the lead to three with 5:26 left in the game, but Mclean Emanuel’s 28-yard field goal attempt was blocked. That not only kept the score 33-24 but seemed to frustrate the Corsairs.
