Friday nightâs game at John Schwab Field was all Bishop. The Broncos trounced the Frazier Mountain Falcons handily, 42-0.
The Falcons were missing two of their wide receivers, limiting their options and opening them up to the strong Bishop defense. That, and the Broncos played a good game. âWe played good defense against Cal City,â said Egan. âWe played good defense and offense against Frazier. We keep improving.â
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles havenât lost their luster. With the 55-20 win over the Immanuel Christian Crusaders Friday, the Eagles are undefeated at 7-0 with nothing between them and Lone Pineâs first Hi-Lo championship but the Lee Vining Tigers, Nov. 4 at home.
Coach Chris Riesen gives the credit to his players, mostly seniors who know the game and are giving 100 percent.
