Coming off a disappointing shutout loss last week, it was important for the San Bernardino Valley College football team to find a way to score and build momentum for the rest of the season Saturday night against Mt. San Antonio College.

Unfortunately, by the time the Wolverines got on the scoreboard, they were down 56-0 to the Mounties, as Mt. SAC rolled to a 63-18 victory at SBVC Stadium.

SBVC was able to hold the Mounties to a three-and-out on the game's opening drive, but that was the last time the Mounties would be stopped on offense until the game was out of hand. Mt. SAC led 14-0 after one, then scored five touchdowns in the second quarter - including a blocked punt return from Mauloa Wells (after a lateral from punt blocker Mason White) and a pick-six by Anthony Hebert on back-to-back drives. 

The Wolverines finally got on the board late in the third quarter, as Robert Eggleston hit Demorceau Jackson for a 27-yard score to make it 56-6. The defense then came up with points, as Brayden Horstman stepped in front of a Sean Jastrab pass and returned it untouched for a 36-yard pick six, making it 56-12.

SBVC scored on its final drive of the game, as they went 85 yards in 10 plays, as Eggleston hit RaHeem Ramsey from 8 yards out to close the scoring.
