Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - There are two seemingly painful facts for the Orange Coast College football team as it hosts Pasadena City tonight at 7. And only one fact the Pirates can change to favor them. Fact: The Bucs will be without defensive standouts Marvin Simmons (abdominal strain), Dan Stringer (elbow) and Travis Loidolt (torn anterior cruciate ligament) for the rest of the season. OCC Coach Mike Taylor said Simmons and Stringer qualify for medical redshirts and will return next season.

PASADENA - After seeing its chances at victory halted on its first offensive play of overtime in its season opener, the Orange Coast College football team showed it could close strong in a 27-10 victory at Pasadena City College on Saturday. The Pirates scored 10 points in the final 67 seconds of the first half to take a 13-7 lead. The visitors then scored a pair of touchdowns within a 66-second span late in the game to clinch their first victory of the season. While four interceptions spelled doom for OCC the previous week against visiting Moorpark, the Pirates shrugged off three turnovers against the Lancers, including a lost fumble on the opening kickoff.

COSTA MESA — Pasadena is known for its parade route, but this was ridiculous. The Orange Coast College football team spent more time in Pasadena territory Saturday than New Year’s Day busses full of bands, drill teams and float technicians. But all the Pirates had to show for it was a 27-25 loss to the visiting Lancers in a Mission Conference inter-division clash that will likely have OCC players and coaches long lamenting missed scoring opportunities. The Pirates (1-2)

COSTA MESA — Like a boil, the offense of the Orange Coast College football team sat and festered through the first three games of the season. It was only a matter of time before it exploded. With a little pricking from a helpful defense the Pirates' offense exploded all over Pasadena College for six touchdowns. The aftermath, a 42-29 nonconference victory at home Saturday for Orange Coast and a 4-0 record for the first time since 1991. But nobody on the Pirates exploded more than sophomore quarterback Kekoa Crowell.
