BC loses to Golden West<br />

By Amanda Hernandez<br />

Reporter<br />

The Bakersfield College <strong>Renegade</strong>s fell short Saturday night after<br />

they ended the game with a score of 14-24 against Golden West.<br />

They started out pretty slow, and it remained that way throughout the<br />

second half, making it difficult for the <strong>Renegade</strong>s to put points on the<br />

board.<br />

In the first quarter, freshman Chris Thompson scored a touchdown<br />

to even the score at 7-7.<br />

However, shortly after, Golden West went in strong with another<br />

touchdown in the second quarter.<br />

Throughout the game, Bakersfield College had many opportunities<br />

to drive the ball home.<br />

However, at half time Golden West led by seven points, with the score<br />

at 14-7. Making it possible for the <strong>Renegade</strong>s to still make a comeback.<br />

Although the game continued at a slow pace with a couple of errors,<br />

Chris Thompson had a punt return play in the second half attempting<br />

to keep his team in the game.<br />

The game was finalized with the last points being scored in the 4th<br />

quarter, still down by ten against Golden West. The <strong>Renegade</strong>s are currently<br />

1-2 for the season.<br />

To zoom in on the athletes perspective, and what<br />

could have been done differently to change the outcome<br />

of the game, wide receiver<br />

Jihad Marks explained, “We just need to execute<br />

better. Offensively, I thought the coaches put<br />

together a great game plan prior to the game. We<br />

missed out on a couple catches, throws, and blocks.<br />

We got stuffed on 4th down, and the defense had<br />

a couple of short fields. I think if we just limit mistakes<br />

and stop shooting ourselves in the foot we’ll<br />

be good.”
