The Bakersfield High School varsity football Drillers played a tight game against Shafter losing 17-31. Although it seems like a hard loss looking at the score, the points were even the majority of the time. 

For the first two quarters, BHS was in the lead, ending half-time ahead 14-2. However, Shafter scored a touchdown making the score 14-8, and they continued gaining on the Drillers. Towards the end of the fourth quarter, they were at 17-22, Shafter kept progressing while we remained unchanged for the rest of the game. They confirmed their win with the ending touchdown and extra point.

For all, this was a thrilling game.  It was the Driller’s home game of the season, and it was with the two oldest Kern High District Schools playing against one another for the first time.

The final scores:

JV: 38-9

Varsity: 17-31
