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.
