Broncos beat KV in 1-second wonder

October 29, 2012

Epic. The game of the century. The stuff of which movies are made.
However you describe what amounted to the Bishop Broncos’ league championship football game against the Kern Valley Broncs, it was, incontestably, one really exciting game. For the few Owens Valley residents who haven’t already heard: Bishop was behind by 3 points on Kern’s 9 yard line with one second on the game clock; a Kyle Batchelder pass sailed into the hands of Curran Simpson and Bishop won by 3 at 34-31.

Broncos unravel Ravens

October 15, 2012

The Bishop Broncos beat the California City Ravens, 48-7.
The football game wasn’t as close as the numbers imply. Befitting a Homecoming Game, the Broncos controlled the ball, the clock, the field, everything but a couple of Ravens’ speedy, little running backs and early game drizzles.
The Ravens have improved over the last few years but not enough to make a dent in the football juggernaut that is Bishop.
