KERMAN — In the season opener for the Madera South football team, the Stallions came into the game against Kerman trying to reverse the losing trend from last year’s winless campaign.

For Stallions head coach Scott Donegan, there’s plenty to build off of from Friday night’s loss, especially with Madera County opponent and defending Div. V Central Section champion Liberty-Madera Ranchos up next.
“We got better as the game went on, the first quarter we were not up to speed,” Donegan said. “It took us the whole quarter to catch up to their speed but Kerman did play in Week 0.
