Bishop Broncos soccer squad overtook the Burroughs High Burros last Saturday 3-2.
The score of the game was closer than the play on the field, according to coach John McGurke

Bishop scored the first two goals before Burroughs tied it up at half time.
A third goal by midfielder Ignacio Santana midway through the second half proved to be the game winner.
The Bishop Lady Broncos hosted the Burros from Burroughs High School last Saturday and came away with a 6-1 victory.

Bianca Sandoval made the fourth and last goal of the half on a nice breakaway from the right side.
The Burros would score their lone goal in the first half, making the half time score 4-1 Broncos.
The Broncos held the Burros scoreless in the second half.

â€śMojave is a good team,â€ť he said. â€śThey have a good coach, theyâ€™re well-prepared. It should be a much better game.â€ť Then again, Egan has anticipated â€śgood gamesâ€ť from Kern Valley, Rosamond and Desert.
Mojave and Bishop are not strangers. Mojave was part of the HDL until 2008. â€śI know the Mojave coach,â€ť Egan said, â€śand they know our program.â€ť

The Rosamond Road-runners didnâ€™t live up to their mascotâ€™s reputation Friday night at Schwab Field. The Bishop Broncos, in the role of Wile E. Coyote, dropped crate-loads of dynamite on their little heads. There was no triumphant â€śbeep beepâ€ť to be heard, all night.
