Bulldogs Survive Titans

Baylin Brroks hauled in a 31-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter to seal the win for Pasadena

By Alex A. Gonzalez

Pasadena: On fourth and six with 2:39 left to play, Pasadena quarterback Indiana Wijay connected with Baylin Brooks for the 31-yard touchdown, sealing the 14-7 win over the Colony Titans on a chilly Friday night at Pasadena High school.

“I just go out there and make big plays when I can,” said Brooks. “I feel like they had the spotlight on me a little bit, and they were leaning towards my side. My coach made a good adjustment, put me in the slot, and we executed that play perfectly.”

At the beginning of the contest, it looked like the Bulldogs were on pace to score every time they had the ball, especially after they took their opening possession and drove down the field. That ended with Wijay’s connection with Camden Jones for the game’s first touchdown. 

However, that was not the case for the Bulldogs’ offense, as they struggled with offense throughout the rest of the first and second quarters and most of the second half.

“We knew we had to keep working as a team. We slipped up a little bit, but we bounced back harder than we slipped up, and we ended up executing,” said Brooks postgame. 

Pasadena would go for it on fourth down several times and fail to convert, giving the Titans a short field to work with. 

“There was some miscommunication when it comes to protection, routes, plays, and just overall as an offense. We got to get more in tune,” said Wijay postgame. “Overall, I still think we played really well.” 

Luckily for the Bulldogs, their defense crowded the line of scrimmage and would stop running back Armon Hornsby from breaking any long runs and would also disrupt the pass, giving Jacob Montoya no time to scan the field for a pass. 

Pasadena took their 7-0 lead into intermission and continued to trade punts with Colony until Wijay connected with Brooks for the go-ahead score late in the fourth quarter. 

It was then when the Titans reached the end zone following the score coming within a touchdown with less than two minutes to play. Jacob could dodge the pass rush and found Donovan English, who broke a tackle and outran the Bulldog defense. 

Colony tried to recover the ball after an onside kick, but the ball bounced in favor of Pasadena, and they could kneel their way for the win. 

With the win, the Bulldogs will enter Pacific league play at 4-1 on the season and will look to extend their four-game win streak on September 29 when they host Burbank. For Colony, they will look to bounce back next week when they travel to Fontana to play Jurupa Hills.

    Chili night? Did they give out bowls of chili with admission, or did they honor Chili Davis at halftime? This site continues to murder the English language.
    From T. Peterson: So of all the action from Friday night, game stories, scoreboard, etc. and what gets you butt hurt is chilly being spelled incorrectly? Seriously? You’re clearly not a football fan if that’s your best take away. You might want try a different site. We cover football here.
