The City College football team lost its last home game of the season 14-15 to Pasadena Saturday.

The Vaqueros lost due to a 2-point conversion caused by an unfortunate penalty called on them late in the game.

The first half and the second half were completely different stories in this game.

The game began with two touchdowns by City College. The game began at an incredibly high pace, but they were the only two touchdowns that the team scored the entire game.

Receiver Nick Foster caught a 43 yard pass from quarterback Franco De Luca, completing the possession in only three plays.

The second touchdown came after receiver Leland Gropper caught a 10 yard pass from De Luca, completing yet another possession in only three plays.

Franco De Luca threw for 210 yards and two touchdowns.

Foster also had a monster game, recording 191 receiving yards.

This was Foster’s last game playing at La Playa stadium, but even with the loss, an emotional Foster said “I don’t care what the record says, I’m proud to be a Vaquero.”

Pasadena scored touchdowns in the second quarter and the fourth quarter.

After the touchdown was made in the fourth quarter the Vaqueros were called for a 12 man on the field penalty for the field goal, which moved the ball into the 2.5 yard line. Because of this Pasadena went for the 2-point conversion and were successful.

City College failed to convert on a potential game-winning run after the conversion.

Coach Moropolous told his team after the game “Love the effort and the heart you show every time.”

“I’m proud of you guys, you played great the entire game,” he added.

“It’s really disappointing, but this team plays with heart everyday.”

The players not only suffered a brutal loss, but had to endure it as their last game at home. One player was visibly teary eyed after the game ended.

Sophomore Andreas Buri said playing for the Vaqueros was “amazing” and it is going to be “forever in my heart.

“We grew up as a family, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them,” he added.
