City College Vaqueros lost their home opening game against San Bernardino Valley Wolverines 35-13 Saturday, according to Dave Loveton, City College sports information officer.

Things were looking up for the Vaqueros at halftime when they initially took a 13-10 lead, however the Wolverines took the lead back in the second half when they scored 25 more points.

The Vaqueros were demolished in first downs (22-11), rushing yardage (174-39) and total yardage (458-119), Loveton said. Out of the eight times Vaqueros punted in the second half, they only had two first downs.

The Vaqueros did have only a single turnover, however, compared to the Wolverines’ five turnovers (three fumbles, two interceptions.)

“They’re a good football team that runs the ball well and their running back got loose a lot,” said Vaquero coach Craig Moropoulos. “I thought our defense played well, they rose up and were on the field a lot. We couldn’t sustain anything offensively and that was very frustrating.

“I’m proud of the way the guys fought to the end. We have some things to work on.”

The Vaqueros next game will be in Santa Clarita against the College of the Canyons 6 p.m. Saturday.
