Bishop Highâs undefeated season came to an end Friday night as the Bishopâs Knights checkmated the Broncos in La Jolla. The final score: 10-21.
âWe didnât play that well,â said coach Bill Egan. âThey just had a better team. The Knights werenât any bigger, they werenât any more physical. We just got out-blocked and out-tackled.â
The Broncos were in the game to the end and played a closer contest than the score reflected. âWe werenât dominated,â said Egan. âIf weâd had some breaks go differently, we couldâve won it.â
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 yearâs loss to Trona in the last play of the game.
âThis is a game the boys will never forget,â said coach Mark Tillemans. âWe really went through all the extremes of high and low.
âIt was a real character-builder. We learned a lot of lessons. We canât come out flat, we have to play four quarters.â
