The Bishop Broncos basketball teamâ€™s record went to 6-2 with a 61-54 win over the visiting Mineral County Serpents Tuesday night.
The game wasnâ€™t as tight as the score reflects; Bishop was the stronger of the two teams from the tip-off. But, like the Lady Broncosâ€™ game, coach Ben Arcularius opted to give his bench varsity playing time and build up the depth of the Broncos squad in preparation for league action.
The Serpents got the tip-off but Andrea Musumeci swept in for the steal and Bishop was the first with points on the board.
Bishopâ€™s Lady Broncos soccer team stayed perfect for the season with a 3-1 win over the Mammoth Lady Huskies at home last Friday.
â€śIt was a little bit one-sided,â€ť said co-coach Cathy McKinley. â€śWe really should have put more balls in the back of the net. But, we played hard as a team and, for the most part, kept our heads in the game.â€ť
Bishop/Mammoth soccer games are always lively and this one was no exception. McKinley was appreciative of the fact Bronco boosters were a â€śgreat positive crowd.â€ť
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles basketball teams got their first test against the Kern Valley Broncs last Tuesday, Nov. 26.
The Eagles pulled out a 60-56 win; the Lady Eagles fell, 58-21.
â€śWe were a little cold in the first half,â€ť said Eagles coach Scott Kemp. Kern led by 4 at the half, but the Eagles came back behind impressive offensive rebounds and put-backs by Brad Greene.
Kemp acknowledged that the Broncs have â€śa couple of good shooters who made some amazing baskets.â€ť But, when a team only has one shot at the basket, itâ€™s tough to win the game.
This yearâ€™s Bishop Lady Broncos basketball team will make its debut tonight in a home game against the Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles.
The basketball squad had a landmark year in 2012-13, going deep into the CIF playoffs before losing in the third round. The mental strength of the team was evident in Bishopâ€™s 51-50 win over Bishop Diego.
