Many of this year's seniors made their varsity debut two years ago when the Cardinals lost a heartbreaker in the Valley.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

They're back and they are older and a whole lot better than in 2011.

Two years ago Bishop Diego opened the season by starting close to ten sophomores on varsity as they lost a heartbreaker at Santa Ynez 23-22.

Many of those players are now starting seniors and this time the Cardinals bring a #1 ranking to the Valley to battle the Pirates. Bishop is No. 1 in the CIF Northwest Division.

The Cardinals opened up the season last week with a 48-0 victory against Santa Maria. The Pirates will not be pushovers as they upset Dos Pueblos last Friday 11-7. Santa Ynez got a  great game from Nick Nielsen who kicked a 47-yard field goal and caught the game-winning touchdown pass.

Game time is 7p.m. on Friday.
