After two dramatic last-minute wins over Chaffey a year ago, the Moorpark College football team made sure to control Saturday's 27-17 win over the visiting Panthers.
One week after letting a 12-7 fourth-quarter lead slip at Long Beach, the Raiders jumped out to a 24-0 lead early in the third quarter.
"Chaffey has some skill players over there that can terrorize you if you're not careful," said Moorpark interim coach Will Thurston. "But the game seemed to be going pretty quick. Time was on our side after a while."
Possession has been emphasis for the Raiders during conference play. Moorpark hasn't lost the turnover battle since Sept. 24.
"We've been doing a decent job of hanging on to it," said Thurston. "We're a little bit more protective in the way plays are being called."
