TORRANCE — El Camino College completed a three-game sweep of Orange County teams Saturday with a 38-14 victory over Golden West in front of about 500 at El Camino in a Mission Conference football game.
El Camino, the fourth-ranked team in the J.C. Grid-Wire national poll, defeated Fullerton, 31-24, last week and Orange Coast, 36-17, the previous week.
The Warriors (4-0 overall and 3-0 in conference play) took advantage of two Golden West turnovers--an interception and a fumbled kickoff--in the first 10 minutes to take a 10-0 lead and were in control thereafter.
"The early turnovers were a big factor," Golden West Coach Ray Shackleford said. "Any time you play a good team like El Camino, you can't afford mistakes like the ones we made early."
