Fridayâ€™s matches between Bishop and Rosamond did not end well for the Broncos.
The boys lost, 46-54; the girls fell in overtime, 42-45.
Both the varsity girls and boys played with intensity; they were simply out-fought, literally in the case of the girls, by the undefeated Roadrunners.
The Broncos played well enough to win, but fell short in the last quarter with a 46-54 final score.
â€śWeâ€™ve played our two best games (against Rosamond and Kern Valley) but still come away with two losses,â€ť said coach Jon Michener. â€śWeâ€™re improving but we need a win.â€ť
The Big Pine Warriors traveled to Lee Vining for a make-up game Wednesday and came home with a split decision.
The Warriors delivered the first league defeat for the Tigers with a 38-37 win.
The Lady Warriors rallied from a 19-point deficit but couldnâ€™t catch up, recording a 41-35 loss.
The Warriorsâ€™ win came down to the wire. Coach Darrin Chirrick put his squad in stall mode for the last 4-5 minutes of play.
â€śWe were up by six points and I wanted to keep us in the driverâ€™s seat,â€ť said Chirrick. The tactic worked, but just barely.
m trounced the Rosamond Roadrunners with a 4-0 shutout Thursday, adding one more win for a 3-1 High Desert League record.
The Broncos controlled both the ball and the tempo in the first half. Twenty-seven minutes into the game, LaVaree Chavez scored off of a great shot from the left side.
Two minutes later, Eva Bohg scored from the right side bringing the score to 2-0.
The second half started the same way, with the Broncos controlling the game. Tiarra Shoshone scored on a nice assist from Alex Tillemans.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles took a tough loss to the visiting Lucerne Valley Mustangs Saturday.
With the Mustangs ahead 57-59 in the final seconds, the Eagles tried to tie the game up by grabbing the rebound of Mike Cappelloâ€™s intentionally missed free throw. They got the rebound but missed the tip-in. The Mustangs came up with the ball and Lone Pine was faced with a tough loss.
The Eagles outscored the Mustangs in all but the third quarter, but that was the killer. Lucerne scored 21 points to Lone Pineâ€™s 8.
The Big Pine Lady Warriors got off to a strong start Tuesday against the visiting Beatty Hornets. The squad could not maintain the momentum against the aggressive Nevada team and lost 40-66.
â€śWe are giving great effort,â€ť said coach Dave Mettam, â€śeven though we came out on the losing end. We played against very experienced girls and did not quit.â€ť
Marissa Lemus led the early assault against the Hornetsâ€™ press, putting Big Pine ahead 6-3.
The Big Pine Warriors had a split decision this week with a 47-66 loss to the Beatty Hornets Tuesday, redeemed by a 57-44 win over the Mammoth Huskies Wednesday.
The players and coaching staff thought the back-to-back games would be a good warm-up for the holiday break and the start of league play. Beatty was slated to send its JV team; Big Pine took Mammoth lightly, according to assistant coach Derek Carrington.
â€śMammoth started on fire,â€ť said Carrington. â€śThey came to play. I think that was the best Iâ€™ve seen the Huskies play.â€ť
The Bishop Lady Broncos basketball squad avenged an early tournament loss to Mineral County High from Hawthorne, Nev. Tuesday night with a 55-23 rout.
â€śThe game went well,â€ť said coach Gerald Howard. â€śWe played very well. Things are really coming together.â€ť
The team struggled with free throws early in the season, but hit 75 percent from the line against Hawthorne.
â€śWeâ€™re 6-4 in pre-league,â€ť said Howard. â€śIf weâ€™d been hitting our free throw shots like we did Tuesday, weâ€™d be 9-1.â€ť
