CHULA VISTA – The College of the Canyons displayed nothing short of championship form against the host Southwestern Jaguars on Saturday night at DeVore Stadium.

Seventh-ranked Canyons scored 38 points in the first half en route to a 52-10 victory over the 24th-ranked Jags.

Cougar freshman quarterback Colton Doyle passed for four touchdowns to four different receivers in the first half, while freshman teammate Calvin Littles caught one of the scoring strikes and returned a punt 62 yards for a score in the second half.

After COC led 14-0, the Jaguars managed a field goal by Asher Booth (Torrey Pines) to get on the board in the first quarter, but the Cougars quickly responded with a touchdown pass.

The Jaguars scored their only touchdown in the second quarter to breathe a little life into the cause on a 4-yard run by sophomore Albert Robinson (Olympian).

The score drew Southwestern to within 31-10 with 6:38 left in the first half.

Canyons, however, added a score with just 25.1 seconds left before halftime with the connection from Doyle to Littles.

Off his game-winning touchdown pass in the season-opener over Grossmont, sophomore Stevie Orr earned the start.

Southwestern passed for 164 yards, including 96 from Orr, and rushed for 107 yards.

But it was Canyons’ sophomore defensive star Henry Ikahihifo, a former three-star prep prospect out of Paraclete High, who had the biggest impact on the Jags’ offense, producing three sacks.

Ikahihifo’s freshman brother, Tooni, threw a touchdown pass in the third quarter for the last score of the game.

Last week’s hero, Christian Jourdain, who made the game-winning touchdown catch against Grossmont, had a team-high six receptions for 49 yards.

Southwestern sophomore Terry Wright (St. Augustine) had four receptions for a team-high 64 yards, with three of the catches coming in the second half from freshman quarterback Jimmy Inman, of Atlanta, good for 49 yards.

Freshman Jacob Buchanan, of Centennial (Las Vegas), had one of two Southwestern sacks.

The Sola brothers, Alfa and Andrew, of the Jaguars, combined for nine tackles plugging up the middle of the line.

College of the Canyons played in the last Southern California championship game back in 2019, losing to Riverside City College, 68-21.
