Pasadena football’s three-game win streak was finally snapped on Friday after the Bulldogs were no match for Crescenta Valley’s high-flying offense in a 47-28 defeat.
The Bulldogs hit the road looking to bag its fourth win of the season and the second in Pacific League play. To Pasadena’s dismay, the Falcons had other plans whose juggernaut offense has propelled the team to a season-opening four straight victories.
Friday’s game was no different as Crescenta Valley established their dominance over Pasadena from beginning to end. The Bulldogs struggled to stymie the Falcon’s dynamic offense, which was led by quarterback Cole Doyle. Along with throwing 21 of 33 for 250 yards, the senior also moved into the No. 2 spot for most wins as a quarterback in Falcons program history.
By halftime, Pasadena was already down 37-6 after the Falcons erupted for 30 points in the second. The Bulldogs did manage to notch 16 unanswered points in the fourth quarter but the game was well out of reach by then.
Despite the tough loss, the Bulldogs will seek to bounce back in their home fixture against Burbank (2-3) on Friday at 7 p.m.
