The Bishop Broncos took down the Frazier Falcons for the third time this season in their home turf match up Monday afternoon.
The game was a make-up for a game scheduled for Friday, but bad weather kept the Falcons at home. Mondayâs game was delayed due to a Frazier bus breakdown.
The Falconsâ were last yearâs High Desert League baseball champions but lost players to graduation; 2014 is the teamâs rebuilding year. Bishop coach Tim Reid predicts a strong Falcon rivalry over the coming years. The Broncos were exposed to some of that potential on Monday but still got the 5-3 win in seven.
Bishopâs Lady Broncos softball squad had to wait over an hour to start the second game in its series with the Frazier Mountain Falcons Monday afternoon. The Falcon teams had to be rescued from Coso Junction where they were stranded following a bus breakdown.
This seasonâs history between the two teams has been decidedly one-sided, but the Falcons werenât ready to roll over and play dead in this final season contest.

This weekend, the 19th Annual Home, Garden and Recreation Show will once more showcase various local businesses and the wares and services they offer to make living and playing in the Eastern Sierra easier and more attractive.
At the same time, the Eastern Sierra Gem and Mineral Show will expose residents and visitors to lesser known but no less valuable attractions and resources â hidden beauty in the form of geological rarities and wonders unearthed from the harshest or most innocuous of local landscapes.
The bronze plaque in the rock monument looks like an ordinary State of California Historic Landmark. The words on the plaque, however, are extraordinary.
âInjustices and humiliation.â
âHysteria, racism and economic exploitation.â
