The Lone Pine Golden Eagles basketball teams got their first test against the Kern Valley Broncs last Tuesday, Nov. 26.
The Eagles pulled out a 60-56 win; the Lady Eagles fell, 58-21.
âWe were a little cold in the first half,â said Eagles coach Scott Kemp. Kern led by 4 at the half, but the Eagles came back behind impressive offensive rebounds and put-backs by Brad Greene.
Kemp acknowledged that the Broncs have âa couple of good shooters who made some amazing baskets.â But, when a team only has one shot at the basket, itâs tough to win the game.
This yearâs Bishop Lady Broncos basketball team will make its debut tonight in a home game against the Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles.
