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.

âMammoth started on fire,â said Carrington. âThey came to play. I think that was the best Iâve seen the Huskies play.â

Broncosâ football coach Bill Egan is not taking this first CIF playoff game Friday against the Mojave Mustangs for granted.
âMojave is a good team,â he said. âThey have a good coach, theyâre well-prepared. It should be a much better game.â Then again, Egan has anticipated âgood gamesâ from Kern Valley, Rosamond and Desert.
Mojave and Bishop are not strangers. Mojave was part of the HDL until 2008. âI know the Mojave coach,â Egan said, âand they know our program.â
