Bishop Highâ€™s undefeated season came to an end Friday night as the Bishopâ€™s Knights checkmated the Broncos in La Jolla. The final score: 10-21.
â€śWe didnâ€™t play that well,â€ť said coach Bill Egan. â€śThey just had a better team. The Knights werenâ€™t any bigger, they werenâ€™t any more physical. We just got out-blocked and out-tackled.â€ť
The Broncos were in the game to the end and played a closer contest than the score reflected. â€śWe werenâ€™t dominated,â€ť said Egan. â€śIf weâ€™d had some breaks go differently, we couldâ€™ve won it.â€ť
The Big Pine Warriors held on in nail-biting overtime against the Trona Tornadoes Friday night to stay undefeated at 5-0 for the season.
The Warriors pulled ahead in the final seconds for the 35-34 win, redeeming Big Pine after last yearâ€™s loss to Trona in the last play of the game.
â€śThis is a game the boys will never forget,â€ť said coach Mark Tillemans. â€śWe really went through all the extremes of high and low.
â€śIt was a real character-builder. We learned a lot of lessons. We canâ€™t come out flat, we have to play four quarters.â€ť
