City College football team made its first home appearance at Hughes Stadium Sept. 16, taking its first win of the season with a 34-22 final score against Sierra College.

The Panthers opened the game with a kickoff and the defensive strength was apparent as the defense stopped the Sierra College Wolverines and caused a turnover on downs. After the defensive stop, City College answered with a 45-yard run, scoring the first touchdown, 7-0.

Running backs Lanier Logan and Devian McKinnie had a big impact in the team’s victory with a strong offensive line forging the way, Offensive coordinator Booker Guyton Jr. said.

“We have some really talented backs that played really well,” Guyton said. “The O-line (offensive line) was very strong too.”

In the second quarter, City College suffered from two blocked punts, (one for a safety). Shortly following, Sierra College scored a touchdown that momentarily put them on top, 8-7.

City College promptly responded with a 41-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. From that point on in the game Sierra College was unable to regain the lead.

As the second quarter came to a close, McKinnie ran for a touchdown with 1:17 left on the clock to put City College in the lead at halftime 21-8.

Westbrooks displayed a strong performance in the game with two sacks on Sierra College’s quarterback.

Throughout the second half of the game City College remained in control. Despite a stopped punt in the fourth quarter, Sierra College was only able to get within six points before City College scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

As the fourth quarter progressed, City College kept its defense focused and held off Sierra to grab the win.

“We played well on all sides of the ball,” linebacker Shawnquece Williams said. “The team came believing in each other, the offense stepped up and the defense stepped up. I see the team moving forward.”

Despite City College losing its first game of the season, the Panthers showcased their talent against Sierra College with control of the game and said there is high hope for a winning season.

“I can’t foretell the future or what it’s going to bring, but I know we are headed in the right direction,” head coach Dannie Walker said. “We got the right foundation and all we can do is go upward. I’m looking for big things out of this team.”

The Panthers will take on the 49ers at Yuba College Saturday Sept. 24 at 6 p.m.
