Bishop High Soccer Teams destroy rival Kern Valley
The Bishop Union High School Girls and Boys soccer teams made quick work of rival Kern Valley Tuesday at Bishop High’s John Schwab field. The win from the Bishop Girls keeps them unbeaten in High Desert League play while the boys bounce back from a tough loss last week to Frazier Mt.
Girls Soccer team soundly beat Kern Valley 5-2. Bishop was up 4-1 at the half with each team scoring one more goal in the second half. The two Kern Valley goals are the first allowed in HDL play by the strong Bishop defense.
The Broncos received goals from Evelyn Santana (2 goals), Alicia Campos, Kristy Dohnel, Brenda Gonzalez, with assists from Kailynn Boxley and a pair of assists from Sara Voss. The Coaching staff of Manny Terasas and Kathy Mckinley note that Evelyn Santana had a great game, as Kern Valley tried to man to man mark her in the first half but she used her skills to get past them and score twice. Evelyn now sits at the top of the league for goals and points. Other players that did well in the win include Ritz Garcia, Chloe Almeida and Brittany Santana.
The Varsity boys beat Kern Valley 7-1. Senior Elijah Alexander scored four goals before resting in the second half. The coaching staff credited Senior Jose “Pepe” Mendez with two excellent goals. Junior Jordan Lopez also had a solid performance, with a goal as well.
The Broncos travel to Rosamond on Thursday to take on the Roadrunners, before their next home match the following Tuesday, February 3rd, when the Broncos host Cal City at John Schwab field.
