After trailing throughout most of the first half, the Warriors put the pedal to the medal offensively and came out victorious with a final score of 34-17 over city-rival L.A. Harbor College on Saturday.

“I’m really happy for our kids. We had a great win tonight,” Coach John Featherstone said. “All week we trained hard knowing we were playing a tough team like the Seahawks. Offensively we were able to execute the plays we ran in practice.”

An interception from sophomore defensive back Jachin Jenkins in the fourth quarter gave El Camino the 34-17 victory they worked hard for after chipping away at the deficit in the first half.

“It feels great coming back on the field and scoring the game winning touchdown after being out for three weeks,” Jenkins said. “We need to stop doubting ourselves mentally and focus on winning.”

The Warriors next game is against Chaffey College at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31 on the Redondo Union High School field.

Update OCT. 26, 2015 11:24 a.m.: The next game will be played at Redondo Union High School on Saturday, not at Chaffey College.
