Falcons fall to Bishop

October 24, 2011

Friday night’s 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. “We played good defense against Cal City,” said Egan. “We played good defense and offense against Frazier. We keep improving.”

Eagles soar to 7-0

October 24, 2011

The Lone Pine Golden Eagles haven’t 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 Pine’s 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.

Of the top 10 riders, six were locals.

Fishing Report

October 7, 2011

LAKE SABRINA
Can’t seem to find the words to describe the scenery at Lake Sabrina. The yellows, oranges, reds, golds and greens, all so picturesque, and speaking of picturesque, there were plenty of photographers trying for that one perfect picture. In fact, we do believe there were more picture takers on the dam than fishermen. That might be due to the w-i-n-d that was with us all last weekend.
Those fishermen that did brave the w-i-n-d were rewarded by some great catching. Most good fishing is at the Inlets with nightcrawlers, PowerBait, jigs or WoollyBuggers bringing in the fish.
