Broncos’ inexperience hurts team in season opener

September 4, 2013

When a team loses its season opener, the initial response is to look at the what-ifs. What if Whittier Christian kicker, Derek Bush, hadn’t made 4 field goals, and the score would have been 29-20 instead of 41-20, a much more palatable points spread. There are probably a dozen more “what-ifs” to be analyzed, but it’s all fairly pointless. The Bishop Broncos lost to the very strong, seasoned Heralds Friday night.

Silver lining behind Lone Pine Eagles’ loss

September 4, 2013

Change some of the names and numbers and the Lone Pine Golden Eagles season opener against the Mineral County Serpents would sound a whole lot like the Broncos football opener against the Heralds. The Eagles fell 56-30 to the Serpents, but there is cause for hope in south county.

Texas-style hits ESGSL tourney

July 23, 2013

While the weather was none too cooperative and the format challenging, the Eastern Sierra Girls Softball Texas-Style One Pitch Tournament, literally, blew through the City Park this past weekend.
The aptly-named Texas tourney requires runners to round the bases backwards. Even by mid-afternoon Saturday, as the eight teams started their second round of games, runners were still heading down the first base line, catching themselves and cutting across the infield to third.
Just NDNs came out on top, beating the Jacksons in the final championship game on Sunday.
