October 12, 2010

Bishop High’s undefeated season came to an end Friday night as the Bishop’s Knights checkmated the Broncos in La Jolla. The final score: 10-21.
“We didn’t play that well,” said coach Bill Egan. “They just had a better team. The Knights weren’t any bigger, they weren’t any more physical. We just got out-blocked and out-tackled.”
The Broncos were in the game to the end and played a closer contest than the score reflected. “We weren’t dominated,” said Egan. “If we’d had some breaks go differently, we could’ve won it.”
