Damone Scott quit the Cal State Northridge team because he objected to a lack of playing time and his No. 3 standing on the quarterback depth chart. Depending on backup Coley Kyman's recovery, Scott might have played had he stayed. Kyman, who took over for struggling starter Marty Fisher in the fourth quarter of last Saturday's 14-0 loss to Central Oklahoma, sustained a partially separated right (throwing) shoulder.

Reserve quarterback Damone Scott has quit the Cal State Northridge football team because of a lack of playing time. Scott, a senior from Long Beach, had yet to get into a game this season. "I couldn't understand why I wasn't in the (second-string) position," said Scott, who made his decision to quit last week. "I hate it to end like this. I'd hate for one of them (Marty Fisher or backup Coley Kyman) to get hurt." In 1991, Scott started two games after Fisher suffered a broken ankle.

Jim Bittner scouted Oxnard High on Friday night and watched the Yellowjackets fumble 7 times. But the Moorpark College coach had no sympathy. "I shook my head and said, 'That team fumbled the ball seven times and we haven't fumbled the ball seven times in a season,' " Bittner said. But Moorpark, which fumbled 3 times in the first half at Compton on Saturday, was anything but sure-handed.

Tight end Marlon McBride caught two short-yardage touchdown passes from quarterback Marty Fisher and made two other acrobatic catches to highlight a Cal State Northridge football scrimmage Saturday at North Campus Stadium. "I don't mind colliding with those (defensive backs)," McBride said. "I worked real hard in the off-season lifting (weights) so I can get up and get those passes. "They finally started throwing it to me, so I wanted to catch a few to make sure they keep throwing it to me."

The end was fitting for the Pierce College football team. The Brahmas (1-9, 1-8) quietly watched Compton quarterback Damone Scott kneel on the Pierce College turf and run the clock out on their dismal season. Compton (3-7, 3-6) won 16-12. With 12:40 left in the game, Marc Harris capped a 4-play, 50-yard drive with a 13-yard touchdown run which cut the deficit to 16-12. Michael Knieriem's conversion pass failed.

Compton College, playing its first night football game of the season, looked like the Not Ready for Prime Time Players in the first half Saturday at Valley. Valley, meanwhile, rolled to a 27-0 intermission lead, then coasted to a 27-14 victory in a Western State Conference Southern Division opener for both schools.

With three down and one to go, the Cal State Northridge football team has added a fifth quarterback. Cornell Ward, a senior wide receiver, will be backup quarterback in the Matadors' final two games, Coach Bob Burt said Monday. The starter will be Damone Scott, a junior transfer from Western Michigan. Marty Fisher, Northridge's starter, sustained a broken ankle with five minutes remaining in the third quarter during the Matadors' 56-28 loss to Southern Utah on Saturday. He is out for the season.

Harbor College Coach Chris Ferragamo hit rock bottom Saturday at Compton College. After watching his Seahawks drop to 1-5 (1-3 in the Western State Conference) with another lethargic showing in a 20-9 loss to Compton, the once-mighty motivator of Banning High School looked too depressed for words. He did, however, manage a 10-minute soliloquy that questioned everything from his own coaching ability to his team's listless play.

The Cal State Northridge football team is as interesting a loser as it was a winner. Coach Bob Burt had a school-record five consecutive winning seasons before this one, but the Matadors, with a grind-it-out, ball-control offense, often were boring. This season the Matadors are 3-6, but at least they have entertainment value. Consider wide receiver Cornell Ward. Ward is third on the team with 25 receptions for 228 yards and has not caught a touchdown pass.
