Brief: Football gets routed at home to rival Valley College

Pierce’s mental mistakes doomed the Brahmas from the start, leading to a 64-13 beatdown by rival Los Angeles Valley College on its home field, Shepard Stadium.

With the win, Valley maintains control of the Victory Bell, as part of the crosstown rivals’ tradition.

“We made some brutal mistakes on special teams and gave them 35 points on bad snaps and two pick sixes,” Pierce coach Jason Sabolic said. “We just can’t make mistakes like that against a good football team.”
