The Tiyan Titans have proven once again that they are not the same team that started off the 2017 season 0-2. After coming off a historic win over the GW Geckos last weekend, the Titans topped their performance with another shutout victory, this time a 24-0 win over the home team Okkodo Bulldogs Saturday night.

It took a quarter for the Titan offense to get going, but they wasted no time in the 2nd quarter by opening up with a deep pass play. Tiyan quarterback Kobe Quiambao kept his eyes downfield and let loose the cannon before taking a big hit. Quimbao would connect with Tyler Pangelinan for a 54-yard touchdown as Pangelinan broke away from the single coverage.

Pangelinan then added a field goal just before the half to put the Titans up 10-0.

The second half would prove even better for the Titan offense, getting two scores from the ground to churn out a convincing victory.

Andrew Blas punched in a 3rd quarter touchdown to cap off a successful offensive drive for the Titans to go up 17-0. The Bulldog offense tried to go airborne, but the Titan secondary, led by Mark Laanan, kept Bulldog quarterback Andrew Borja from breaking big plays.

Lanaan had his mitts on three interceptions that he couldn’t haul in, proving his worth in pass defense. The Titan defense played air tight, coming away with a single interception in the opening quarter. The run defense was also stout as they didn’t allow the Bulldogs to get into any rhythm.

Tiyan added a final score from Fred Lumogda on a goal line punch in to final the contest 24-0.

Okkodo didn’t find the end zone for the first time this season, coming off their first win over the Southern Dolphins las week. The Titans stand (2-2) with Okkodo dropping to (1-2).

Tiyan takes on the struggling Southern Dolphins while the Bulldogs face off against Guam High.
