The Bishop Lady Broncos logged an 11-3 win over Vasquez Saturday at the Lancaster Tournament and a 10-0 shutout of Louisville in an impromptu scrimmage.
The Broncos got to Lancaster two hours before their first scheduled game against Vasquez to find that their second opponent, Desert Christian, was a no show, leaving the Louisville Royals from Woodland Hills idle.
Bishop volunteered to play Louisville in a scrimmage format, then donated pitcher Megan Erwin when the Royalsâ pitcher suffered arm problems during warm up. Erwin and Kellie Tiner rotated between teams for six innings of play.
Immediately after the 10-0 scrimmage, Bishop got serious going into a real game against the Vasquez Mustangs, winning 11-3.
âIâm proud of the girls for rolling with the punches,â said coach Stacy Van Nest. âKellie and Megan displayed great sportsmanship by jumping in on the other team, after some coaxing, as did Katelyne Lent for coaching through the scrimmage.
âEveryone played well and our offense really exploded in the second game.â
Bishop is now 7-3 in pre-league and will take a long break until a matchup with Paraclete on the road, April 5, and the High Desert League opener at Cal City, April 10.
