    Drillers pull away from Hawks

    There's not a French term for "pick-six," but there is for "I've seen this somewhere before." It's called deja vu, and Bakersfield High had the happiest case possible in a 26-7 win at Centennial on Friday night.

    For the second straight week, the Drillers clung to a 12-7 lead against a Southwest Yosemite League opponent, and for the second straight week, senior cornerback Curtis Hampton intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown to seal victory.

    "I was just trying to make a play for my team and get that 'W' so we could go home happy," Hampton said. "It felt good."

    Darrious Eaton added a pick-six for good measure on Centennial's next drive, and Bakersfield improved to 7-1 and 3-0 in the SWYL.
