Drillerbowl 2023: The homecoming game and halftime show

On Sep. 29, the Bakersfield High School varsity football team put up a good fight against Bakersfield Christian High School, ultimately losing 32-34 on their home field.

It was a tough first quarter that ended with 0-7, and it looked like the Drillers could still make a comeback. They ended the second quarter behind 12-21.

BCHS caught the crowd’s attention when their offense made the dash from the forty-yard line and scored on two separate occasions. 

The loss did not mean that the Drillers lacked support; the stands were so full by the end of the first quarter that it was hard for late arrivals to find seats. There was many blue and white clothing with the theme being blue and white out.

After the second quarter was the halftime show. All grade levels performed their Homecoming show that they worked on for the past several weeks with their classmates. With the theme being Drillerbowl 2023, each class was asked to create a float performance based on a previous Superbowl halftime show.

The themes included

  • Class of 27’:  Beyonce and Bruno Mars (2013, 2014)
  • Class of 26’: Michael Jackson (1993)
  • Class of 25’: Katy Perry (2015)
  • Class of 24’: Hip-hop legends of the 90’s (1990’s)

Once again the senior class took first place for the floats, while the sophomore class took second place.

Shortly after the floats, Kali Figueroa and Malcolm Hess were announced as the winners of Mr. and Miss BHS. Figueroa will also receive a scholarship to go along with her title.

After the halftime festivities, the third quarter ended with BCHS leading 19-27.

The fourth quarter is when fans were on their toes waiting for the final score. Not only did the game get intense, but the Drillers scored for the final time that night during the last two minutes of the game.

The final scores were

JV: 0-6

Varsity: 32-34
