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.
