Friday nightâ€™s game at John Schwab Field was all Bishop. The Broncos trounced the Frazier Mountain Falcons handily, 42-0.
The Falcons were missing two of their wide receivers, limiting their options and opening them up to the strong Bishop defense. That, and the Broncos played a good game. â€śWe played good defense against Cal City,â€ť said Egan. â€śWe played good defense and offense against Frazier. We keep improving.â€ť
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles havenâ€™t lost their luster. With the 55-20 win over the Immanuel Christian Crusaders Friday, the Eagles are undefeated at 7-0 with nothing between them and Lone Pineâ€™s first Hi-Lo championship but the Lee Vining Tigers, Nov. 4 at home.
Coach Chris Riesen gives the credit to his players, mostly seniors who know the game and are giving 100 percent.
