Kern Valley’s jayvee football team keeps on winning. Even a schedule change does not deter the steam roll they are on.
Early in the year, Desert dropped 11-man football, leaving the Broncs with a gap in their schedule. Facing the possibility of not playing for three weeks, they shopped around and found a non-league opponent in the Arvin Bears.
The game was played on Thursday. The game date change saw the Broncs dominate from start to finish.
Kern Valley’s offense raced to 328 total yards and had six different players cross the goal line for touchdowns.
They rushed for five scores and threw a scoring toss in grabbing the 41-13 win to improve to 5-0-1 on the year.
The Broncs scored twice in the first quarter to go up 13-0. They added a touchdown in the second to take the 20-0 halftime lead into the locker room.
Things stayed the course as Kern Valley continued to jingle the scoreboard, putting up 14 points in the third and finishing it off with a touchdown in the fourth.
Arvin put up all their points in the fourth after the game was already decided.

Head coach Frank Woody said, “A great job of execution by the offensive line. We had many backs carry the ball and get positive yards. On defensive, our interior players shut down Arvin’s run game. They only had 100 yards on 31 carries until late in the game. We’re preparing for our homecoming game and league title game.”
The Broncs are back at home on Friday as Rosamond comes to town. This game is homecoming, and it will kick off at 4 p.m.
