Sam Adams Keys KV comeback

Kern Valley wins third straight HDL football title

by Arnie Palu

Bishop Union High school football took a 14-3 halftime lead into the locker room Friday Night.  In the second Kern Valley Senior Sammy Adams started the KV revolution.  Adams founded the Kern Valley comeback with a series of big plays starting with returning the second half kickoff 85-yards for a touchdown.  Adams second half heroics included jarring a would be touchdown pass from a Bronco receiver, scoring the go-ahead touchdown with 3:42 to play, and picking off a broncos pass in the final seconds putting the game on ice.  Kern Valley wins the HDL title with a 17-14 win.  Football is a team game, but Sammy Adams owned the second half of this rivalry game.   Kern Valley fans will surely be toasting Sam Adams for years to come when they remember their 2015 High Desert League Championship.

Bishop Union now must turn the page and get ready for the postseason.  The Broncos finish the regular season with a 4-6 record including a 2-2 mark in the High Desert League, good for third place behind KV and runner up California City. The Broncos are the #10 seed in the CIF Central Section Division 5 Championships. BUHS will travel to #7 Mendota High School Friday, November 13th.  Fowler High School, the #2 seed, has a bye into the second round. The winner of the BUHS-Mendota game will travel to Fowler for the Quarterfinals Friday, November 20th. Friday’s opening round game will be broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV, and streamed live at kibskbov.com through the listen live link, kickoff is set for 6pm. Mendota has a 6-4 record and tied for 2nd in the West Sierra League. Mendota is located west of Fresno just 368 miles from Bishop.
