BC loses to Golden West

By Amanda Hernandez

Reporter

The Bakersfield College Renegades fell short Saturday night after

they ended the game with a score of 14-24 against Golden West.

They started out pretty slow, and it remained that way throughout the

second half, making it difficult for the Renegades to put points on the

board.

In the first quarter, freshman Chris Thompson scored a touchdown

to even the score at 7-7.

However, shortly after, Golden West went in strong with another

touchdown in the second quarter.

Throughout the game, Bakersfield College had many opportunities

to drive the ball home.

However, at half time Golden West led by seven points, with the score

at 14-7. Making it possible for the Renegades to still make a comeback.

Although the game continued at a slow pace with a couple of errors,

Chris Thompson had a punt return play in the second half attempting

to keep his team in the game.

The game was finalized with the last points being scored in the 4th

quarter, still down by ten against Golden West. The Renegades are currently

1-2 for the season.

To zoom in on the athletes perspective, and what

could have been done differently to change the outcome

of the game, wide receiver

Jihad Marks explained, “We just need to execute

better. Offensively, I thought the coaches put

together a great game plan prior to the game. We

missed out on a couple catches, throws, and blocks.

We got stuffed on 4th down, and the defense had

a couple of short fields. I think if we just limit mistakes

and stop shooting ourselves in the foot we’ll

be good.”
