WHITTIER, Calif. – Redlands wrapped up at least a share of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title with a resounding 65-7 victory over Whittier College on Senior Day at historic Memorial Stadium.
Cox’s photo gallery is on our Facebook page and photos of the game could end up in the 2022 edition of the Yearbook. The photos may also be used by the American Football Coaches Association for its web site, social media and publications.
The win also secured an automatic Division III playoff berth for the Bulldogs, who have won five straight contests following a loss to Linfield on Sept. 18.
Redlands improved to 7-1 (5-0) with dominant performances on both sides of the ball. Quarterbacks Nathan Martinez and Myles Herrera combined for 312 passing yards and five touchdowns, while the defense forced four fumbles and an interception.
The Bulldogs tallied 258 yards on the ground, led by Troy Williams with 56 yards on 11 carries. Kai Thompson added 54 yards and a touchdown, while Tony Williams Jr. had 51 yards and a pair of scores.
The Poets (0-9, 0-6) got their lone touchdown on a 3-yard interception return by Cade Ignacio in the third quarter, but Redlands was already comfortably ahead, 49-0.
The Redlands will wrap up the regular season at home against Cal Lutheran (5-2, 3-2) on Nov. 13, while Whittier College’s season is over.
The Bulldogs did not play a 2020 season because of COVID-19. In 2019, Redlands went 9-2 and lost to Mary-Hardin Baylor in the opening round of the playoffs.
