Head Coach Dutra surpassed his mentor Barney Eames for the most wins in program history, as Hancock College beat L.A. Valley College 26-16 Saturday, September 8th.
A stellar running attack and solid defense helped propel the Bulldogs past L.A. Valley. Valley, members of the American Metro League, entered the match coming off of a 22-14 victory over Victor Valley College.
Sophomore running back Ryheem Skinner, who led the Bulldogs last season with 749 total rushing yards, led the charge Saturday evening with 15 carries for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns.
It was evident from kickoff that it was going to be a defensive battle. However, 22 penalties haunted the L.A. Valley Monarchs, resulting in 238 total yards.
The Bulldogs will host Ventura at Hancock Field for their home opener at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 15
