Pirates struggle, remain winless

Orange Coast is 0-2, off to its worst start since 2004, after latest loss at Long Beach City Saturday.

September 11, 2010|By Barry Faulkner, barry.faulkner@latimes.com

Freshman tailback Jorey Hansen had 34 rushing yards on 13 carries in his first start. His two-yard scoring surge off left tackle put the Pirates on the board, but Lucas Vandeman's PAT attempt was kicked into the line.

Vandeman's low 38-yard field-goal try late in the first half also never cleared the neutral zone.

A 72-yard touchdown pass helped Long Beach gain a 21-6 lead in the second quarter and the Vikings' Deondre Powell returned the second-half kickoff 86 yards to put OCC further in a hole.

OCC freshman cornerback Wesley Harris snatched backup quarterback Gabriel Thomas' pass with one hand and returned the interception 52 yards for a touchdown to finalize the scoring with 5:16 left in the game.

Sophomore outside linebacker Travis McNaughton also had an interception.

Sophomore outside 'backer Corbin Davis, who had 13 tackles against Saddleback, sat out the second half with what Taylor said was a neck injury.

Josue said he is anxious to get back at it.

"This was my first time and it was good experience," Josue said. "I could have made plays and I should have made plays. I'm ready to step up, learn my stuff and take control of this offense."
