PASADENA  (09-13-15) — After opening the season with back-to-back routs, Grossmont College is averaging 51.5 points per game. On the flip side the Griffins have surrendered only one touchdown and 10 points total.

The Griffins amassed 550 yards in total offense, including 344 on the ground as they pounded Pasadena City College, 51-0 on Saturday night (Sept. 12) at Jackie Robinson Field.

“We’re progressing a little bit,” said Grossmont coach MIKE JORDAN, who’s Griffins opened the season with a 52-10 victory over Southwestern last week.  COv4a43VEAEhBYQAgainst Pasadena, Grossmont broke off long scoring TD runs of 75 yards by THOMAS McDONALD early in the third quarter, and 80 yards by NEHEMIAH BROWN with 17 seconds left in that period.

“We were able to break off some long plays,” Jordan said, “and that definitely turned the game in our favor.”

Grossmont led 23-0 at halftime and 44-0 after three periods.

McDonald averaged 19.6 yards on eight carries and finished with 157 yards to lead the Griffins’ ground game. Brown also came up big, averaging 20.8 yards on four carries for 83 yards.

Griffins quarterbacks TOMMY PISTONE and MICHAEL CARRILLO combined to complete 20 of 33 passes for 206 yards, including touchdown strikes of 17 yards from Pistone to CHRISTIAN BROOKS and 25 yards from Carrillo to JALEN LAKE.

“Both of our quarterbacks threw well,” Jordan noted. “It’s nice to have two good quarterbacks.”

Brooks reeled in 6 passes for 94 yards, and CORY McKESSEN snagged 3 for 29 yards. Ten Griffins caught passes in the contest.

Grossmont took command on back-to-back TD runs of 5 and 14 yards by running back JAMARCUS FEDERICK.

Linebacker KALEB HARSTVEDT notched 9 tackles, while safety DEVAUGHN MURRAY logged 6 stops.

Defensive back ARMANDO SMITH accounted for the Griffins’ first points by notching a tackle in the end zone for a safety.

“Our next eight games will be more of a challenge,” admitted Jordan.

That begins next weekend at Riverside. The Griffins upset the Tigers last year when Riverside was ranked No. 1 in the state.

“I’m sure they’re gonna come after us,” Jordan said.
