The Bishop Broncos basketball teamâs record went to 6-2 with a 61-54 win over the visiting Mineral County Serpents Tuesday night.
The game wasnât 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.
Bishopâs Lady Broncos soccer team stayed perfect for the season with a 3-1 win over the Mammoth Lady Huskies at home last Friday.
âIt was a little bit one-sided,â said co-coach Cathy McKinley. âWe 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
Bishop/Mammoth soccer games are always lively and this one was no exception. McKinley was appreciative of the fact Bronco boosters were a âgreat positive crowd.â
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.
âWe were a little cold in the first half,â 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 âa couple of good shooters who made some amazing baskets.â But, when a team only has one shot at the basket, itâs tough to win the game.
This yearâs 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 Bishopâs 51-50 win over Bishop Diego.
