Lady Broncos 5-5 in pre-league after loss to Burroughs

March 28, 2011

In an effort to get as many games under the Lady Broncos’ belts before the High Desert League softball matches start April 5, Broncos coach Stacy Van Nest contacted Burroughs to set up a game for last Friday.
The outcome was valuable experience but a 3-11 loss to the tough Ridgecrest team.
“We put the ball in play,” said Van Nest, “but just needed to string more hits together and be more solid on defense.”
The game went a full seven innings. Burroughs held Bishop to one run through five innings.

Bishop Broncos drop games to Burroughs

March 28, 2011

Murphy’s Law could be applied to the Bishop Broncos’ match-up with the Burroughs Burros Saturday. With the exception of a few moments of great Broncos baseball, everything that could go wrong … you know the rest.
Too many Broncos stranded on base, too many errors, too many walks, but coach Tim Reid found the silver lining in the 8-5 loss. “I was proud of the way the team battled,” said Reid. “We shouldn’t have even been in the game,” he said in reference to the tough Burros, a team that had leveled Rosamond 20-4 in a pre-league game March 22.

Hernandez’s finish was a beautifully placed header from the penalty spot over the keeper late in the first half. The Div. 5 team ended up winning 3-1 but Hernandez played well in his last game as a high school student.
