Chambers’ explosiveness leads Kerman in upset of top-seeded CVC

Kerman quarterback Sean Chambers’ big play capability was on full display as he darted past defenders en route to his ninth-seeded Lions’ 21-14 upset of top-seeded Central Valley Christian on Friday in Visalia.

Chambers, just a sophomore, was particularly devastating with his feet, as he rushed 26 times for 163 yards—including a 52-yard touchdown run. He also completed 4-of-10 passes for 93 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

In addition to Chambers’ yardage, Brandon Smith rushed 14 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns.

Defensively the Lions allowed 144 yards rushing on 31 carries and kept the high-powered CVC run game out of the endzone.

CVC’s leading rusher Kolin Stock carried the ball 22 times for 83 yards and Connor Paden added five carries for 58 yards.

The victory has the Lions believing they can keep their run going.

“We’re peaking at the right time,” Kerman head coach Anthony Taylor told the Visalia Times Delta. “My kids are great. They really want it right now. They finally believe we can go farther than just the first round of the playoffs. That’s one of the things I tried to instill in them the whole season. Coming from a team that’s been winners, this team is finally figuring it out. It’s great.”

Next week Kerman will face Chowchilla in the Division IV semifinals.
