In a back-and-forth battle that took the full strength of the Big Pine football teamâ€™s roster, the Warriors toppled Lancaster Baptist, 33-27, Saturday.
â€śIt was a hard-hitting game,â€ť said Big Pine coach Mark Tillemans. â€śThey (Lancaster Baptist) took our punches and didnâ€™t give up.â€ť
Big Pine jumped ahead early, but two special teams breakdowns allowed the Eagles to get back in the game.
After going ahead, 13-0, in the first quarter, the Warriors quickly added to their lead in the second quarter, taking a 19-0 lead. But the Eagles didnâ€™t quit, as they ran back the kickoff for a touchdown.
In their opening game of the season, the Broncos football team showed why they are ranked No. 1 in the Northeast Division as they downed Linfield Christian, 38-6, Friday.
With the victory, Bishop ended the fifth-ranked Lionsâ€™ 15-game winning streak that started last season.
The Broncos were in control from the beginning as they took a 24-0 halftime lead.
â€śI was particularly impressed with the intensity of the boys,â€ť said Bishop coach Bill Egan.
Bishop used a ground attack to devastate the Lionsâ€™ defense. The Broncos rushed for 326 yards as a team.
