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.
