Kern Valley falls to Ravens

The varsity Broncs end their season on a losing note to Cal City.

With no jayvee game, the Broncs took the field and honored their senior players. That would be the last celebration as they were corralled by the Ravens 13-0. On this chilly night, Kern Valley’s offense could not find the end zone, while the Ravens picked up their first league win.

Both teams were coming off lop-sided losses. The Broncs got pummeled by Rosamond, while Cal City got pounded by Bishop.

The Broncs had extra help on the field as they called up some junior varsity players to fill the sidelines.

Since taking the HDL in the 2014-15 season, Kern Valley (2-7, 0-3 HDL) finished off their second straight losing season. Last year they finished 5-6, and 1-3 in the HDL.
