Dustin Nersesyan had 14 unassisted tackles and Josh Martin put in four solo tackles and five assisted tackles.

David Parker completed five of 11 passes for 147 yards and two scores and Justin Tyler rushed for 52 yards on 11 carriesGlendale goes for its second win of the season against Harbor College Saturday at 1 p.m. at Glendale High’s Moyse Field.
