Teamwork lands Bishop a big win

October 16, 2013

In a game of five rapid sets, Bishop’s Lady Broncos volleyball squad fought hard against Frazier Mountain to earn the victory in the tie-breaker.
Though it’s still early in High Desert League action, the win over the Frazier Falcons was a near-necessity in the Broncos run for the league championship.
Game one was a reflection of the entire match. Neither team enjoyed more than a 3-point advantage through to the 23-25 win for the Falcons. For every points run from the Broncos, the Falcons answered with heavy fortification at the net.

Unlike last Friday’s team effort, the Lady Eagles were never able to find their rhythm and passed out of system. “We had no offensive production and defensively did not play with intensity,” said coach Mel Joseph.
