Saturday was opening day for the Wasco Bengals, and it was a winner. The final score was Bengals 44, Southern Ravens 0.
With a lot of fanfare, both teams' players were individually introduced to the spectators.
From the beginning of the game with the Bakersfield team, smart spectators brought their own canopies for protection against the beating sun, and several brought their own umbrellas.
While most people were watching the game, smaller ones were running and playing on the bleachers.
Cheers were constant on the Bengals side as they played a high-scoring game with a lot of action on the field.
"I can't believe they are playing in this heat," Michael Villalpondo, Sr. said.
Michael Villalpondo, Jr. scored two touchdowns and had multiple tackles on defense, Coach Juan Bernal said.
The Bengals are set to play Central Bakersfield (a feeder program for Bakersfield High School) on Saturday at GEF Kaiser Permanente Stadium, 9001 Ashe Road. Game times are 9 a.m. for freshman, 11 a.m. for sophomores, 1 p.m. for JV and 3 p.m. for varsity.
