Central Valley Christian ended their season with a disappointing 28-14 loss to the Bakersfield Christian Eagles on the road last Friday, Nov. 29. CVC turned the ball over four times with three fumbles and one interception. The turnovers ultimately made the difference. The Eagles gained 282 yards on the night compared to CVC’s 248. 187 of those were through the air, with 61 on the ground. Bakersfield Christian used a much more balanced approach with 176 yards through the air and 106 on the ground. Bakersfield Christian also won on third down, converting 30% of their opportunities. CVC on the other hand went 1-9 on third down opportunities. The Cavaliers ultimately ended their season at 9-5, and despite losing in the last game of the season, still made their third consecutive valley championship game appearance.

Bishop Broncos trample Cardinals 34-7 in D-VI title game
Despite having one of their best seasons since head coach Ben White took over the Cardinal football program, Orosi still could not win the last game of the season. On the road against the Bishop Broncos, the Cardinals were nearly outmatched from the beginning. 

Each defense managed to stymie opposing offenses throughout the first quarter, but Bishop started reeling off scoring plays in the second quarter heading into halftime ahead 13-0. The Broncos added 14 more points in the third quarter and then seven in the last frame of the game. Orosi also scored their only points of the game in the fourth quarter. 

Orosi finished the 2019 season with 11 wins to four losses and ended in third in the West Sequoia League standings.
