Bakersfield College got off to a disastrous start and never recovered against Mount San Antonio College on Saturday night.

The Mounties jumped out to a 27-0 second-quarter lead before coasting to a 40-9 victory over the Renegades at Memorial Stadium.

Jamal Overton rushed for 175 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns to lift Mount SAC past BC for an eighth straight time.

Overton capped off Mount SAC's first two drives with TD runs of 3 and 13 yards.

That would turn out to be all the offense the Mounties would need as BC was able to only muster a Kwame Johnson 4-yard second-quarter touchdown run and a late-game safety.

"We took backward," siad BC coach Jeff Chudy. "As a program director, I have to take responsibility. We played horribly."

BC's offense finished with just 178 yards, compared to 409 for Mount SAC.

To make make matters worse BC had both a punt and field goal blocked.

Both miscues led to Mount SAC touchdowns.

Preston Hodges had 12 rushing attempts for 61 yards, and Johnson added 50 yards on 10 carries.

BC quarterback Derrick Martin completed 8-for-28 passing with 107 yards. The freshman was pressured all night by an aggressive Mounties defense that had four sacks and four hurries.

Mount SAC scored on its first five possessions (three touchdowns and two field goals).

"This did not look like a second game for us," Chudy said. "We got to give Mount SaC credit. They're a good football team. Might be the best team we play all year. But we definitely did not execute. Didn't play very well. And again, I have to look internally at myself. We got to get better for Fullerton because they're a good football team. We certainly have a long way to go and short time to do it."

Mounties kicker Donald Hageman had four field goals to go along with four PATs.

BC limited Mount SAC All-American wide receiver Kaelin Clay to three catches for 32 yards.

Another bright spot for the Renegades was the fact that they didn't commit any turnovers, a point of emphasis by Chudy for his team this week.

Mounties quarterback Rocky Moore was 12 of 20 for 150 yards with one touchdown.

Mount SAC dominated the first two quarters, out-gaining BC 254-55 en route to a 30-7 halftime lead.
