Knights hand Broncos first loss of season

October 12, 2010

Bishop High’s undefeated season came to an end Friday night as the Bishop’s Knights checkmated the Broncos in La Jolla. The final score: 10-21.
“We didn’t play that well,” said coach Bill Egan. “They just had a better team. The Knights weren’t any bigger, they weren’t any more physical. We just got out-blocked and out-tackled.”
The Broncos were in the game to the end and played a closer contest than the score reflected. “We weren’t dominated,” said Egan. “If we’d had some breaks go differently, we could’ve won it.”
