Abel Gonzalez scored two touchdowns in the second half to lead the Cardinals to a 24-6 win in The Little Big Game.


For the first time in this rivalry, Bishop Diego has three straight wins over Carpinteria in the Little Big Game. Abel Gonzalez scored two second-half rushing touchdowns to lead the Cardinals to a 24-6 win in front of an estimated seven thousand fans at Santa Barbara City College.

Trailing 6-0 late in the second quarter, Bishop Diego went on an 88-yard scoring drive capped by a 12-yard touchdown pass from Gabe Molina to Thomas Lash. The extra point gave the Cardinals the lead for good. They tacked on a field goal on the final play of the half to lead 10-6 at the break.

Gonzalez broke free on a 34-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to stretch the lead to 17-6.

Carpinteria had two costly turnovers in the fourth quarter. Bishop Diego stopped a drive when Gonzalez recovered a fumble and then John "Cowboy" Samson intercepted a pass. The Cardinals cashed in the second turnover with a 5-yard touchdown run by Gonzalez who was named the game's Most Valuable Player.

After a scoreless first quarter, Carpinteria scored the game's first touchdown on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Ian Craddock to Peter Ramos. But that is all the Cardinals would allow as their defense has now given up just a total of 25 points in six games this year.

The game was the Tri-Valley League opener for both teams who were undefeated in the non-league season. The Cardinals are now 6-0 on the year and should remain ranked No.1 in the CIF Northwest Division. Carpinteria, who entered ranked 4th in the same division, fell to 6-1 overall.

    DUI Driver in Fatal Early Morning Accident Ordered to Detox Program in 1995

    The Santa Barbara woman arrested for DUI in the early morning accident that left three people dead early Monday morning has a lengthy court record out of Ventura County. Kimberly Kreis, 52, was ordered to serve 30 days in a detox program as far back as 1995.

    The car that Kreis was driving crashed into a disabled Mazda near the Castillo off-ramp of the southbound 101 freeway in Santa Barbara. Two 17 year old North Torrance High School students were killed in the accident- Jessica Leffew and Danielle Murillo. 20 year old Brian Lopez also died in the wreck. The driver of the Mazda, Eric August, is hospitalized in critical condition.

    A NewsChannel 3 investigation found records out of Ventrua County that appear to show that Greis has at least one prior conviction involving drugs and or alcohol, and in 1995 she was ordered to serve 30 days in a Cottage Hospital detox program.

    CHP investigators are still trying to piece together why the Mazda veered right into a guardrail, causing it to flip onto it's roof before coming to rest in the middle of the southbound freeway, which set into motion the deadly accident.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Guiterrez, said "A lot of things could have happened, He could have fallen asleep. We just don't know at this point."
