Dos Palos Routs the Broncos

The Bishop Broncos season has come to a close. Arnie Palu’s team were unable to advance to the second round of CIF Central Section play, losing 41-6 to the Dos Palos Broncos.

Bishop were unable to stop Dos Palos, who were big, physical, and fast. The Broncos of the Western Sierra dominated the game from start to finish.

 

In the first quarter, Dos Palos were able to score on their opening possession, thanks to a Ronald Johnson 50 yard run. Johnson took the ball to the right side and was surrounded by a sea of blue, but was somehow able to cut back inside and take it to the house making it 7-0.

The Merrell to Merrell connection provided Dos Palos with even more of an advantage, when quarterback, Michael Merrell found his brother, Zane Merrell for a reception inside the five yard line. The ball was placed on the one yard line, and fullback, Ryan Ramirez punched it in, giving Dos Palos a 14-0 lead.

Bishop were thrown a lifeline when it was 21-0, thanks to standout cornerback, Mark Mayhugh intercepting the ball in his own endzone for his ninth pick of the season. This accomplishment allowed Mayhugh to become the second ranked player in the state of California pertaining to interceptions.

Mayhugh get the INT

The senior defensive back finished his season just one interception away from tying state leader, Chase Jones of Mission Prep in San Luis Obisbo, who leads all players in the state with ten interceptions.

Although Mayhugh was able to cause a turnover, the Broncos were unable to capitalize. Bishop turned the ball over going the other way, after a pass was intended for Mark Mayhugh, but was intercepted after a deflection.

It wasn’t until late in the game that the Broncos were finally able to score. Sophomore quarterback, Clay Omohundro threw an arching pass right into the hands of Mayhugh, who went in for the score.

After the game, Coach Palu praised the opposition’s efforts saying,Tough way to end a fine season. Hats off to Dos Palos they played well and took advantage of our miscues.” Although Palu was disappointed with the result, he heaped praise on his team’s coaching staff and players when he said. “Thank you to our seniors for their hard work and dedication to the program. Thank you to our wonderful coaching staff and their families for their time and dedication to our kids.”

The Broncos finished their season with a 7-4 record. Many key players will be returning next year, including Tristan Valle, Luke McClean, Steven Paco, and Wesley Pettet.

Broncos Strong 2nd Half.. 59-24 VS Rosamond

The Broncos continued their winning ways Friday night beating Rosamond 59-24 for their fifth consecutive victory. The five straight victories mark the first time that head coach, Arnie Palu has accomplished such a feat.

Although the Broncos ended up winning comfortably, they were not team who got first blood. The Rosamond Roadrunners opened the scoring with a monster run from star running back, Charles Anthony Watson. The senior running back, cut to the outside and broke away from the Bronco secondary for an 80-yard run midway in the first quarter.

However, the Broncos soon responded with a one-yard touchdown on a Luke McClean keeper, making it 7-6 thanks to the Christian Morales extra point.

Later, running back, Wesley Pettet punched in a rushing touchdown right on the doorstep, which expanded Bishop’s lead to eight points. A few moments after the score, Christian Morales converted a 20-yard field goal, and the Broncos went up 17-6

Rosamond quarterback, Colby Adams was able to cut the deficit by throwing a strike on the far side to Davion Jackson for a 15-yard touchdown. The junior quarterback’s ability to escape the pocket and find his receiver made it 17-12.

The second half was much less competitive, mostly because the Bishop defense were suffocating their opponent with back to back scoop and scores. Mark Mayhugh was able to score his second defensive touchdown in three weeks, when a fumble was forced inside the Rosamond five-yard line, Mayhugh was there to collect the ball for the touchdown.

Bishop’s biggest run of the night came from Steven Paco, who used his vision and speed to blow by defenders for a 55-yard run. Paco’s touchdown made it 45-12 late in the third quarter.

Palu’s team ended up expanding their commanding lead, and the game ended 59-24, with Rosamond scoring a few garbage-time points in the fourth quarter.

The Broncos are on the road against Boron next week, with an opportunity to inch closer to a High Desert League title.

Bronco Varsity Win in Kern Valley

Lake Isabella- The Bishop Broncos took on the Kern Valley Broncs in their first game of Desert Mountain League play on Friday.

Although the game was close for most of the game, Bishop were able to come out on top by pulling away in the fourth quarter. The final score of the game was 24-9.

Bishop had a difficult time getting the offense to click for most of the game, turning the ball over three times. However, as the game went on, the Broncos were able to get things going on the ground.

Running backs, Wesley Pettet and Steven Paco combined for 229 yards on the ground, as well as two touchdowns.

The Broncos are riding the momentum of a four-game winning streak, with a 5-2 record on the season. Head coach, Arnie Palu’s team will host Rosamond next game on October 12th for their second game of Desert Mountain League play.

Bishop Varsity Romp Sierra

Broncos Cruise to Victory Heading Into Mountain Desert League Play

Bishop CA– The Bishop Broncos football team impressed mightily against Sierra, winning 61-0 for their largest margin of victory this season.

In the first half, Broncos quarterback, Luke McClean was the standout player. McClean hooked up with receiver, Jayden Braithwaite for a touchdown on the team’s second possession.

On the next drive, the Junior quarterback was able to score by bursting up field though multiple Chieftain defenders for a 30 yard rushing touchdown to make it 14-0 in favor of Bishop. McClean ended up finishing his night with 125 total yard and two touchdowns.

The team’s ground attack was headed by Steven Paco, who had 127 yards on 12 carries, as well as 3 touchdowns. Head coach, Arnie Palu said that Paco had a “breakout performance” and was impressed with the way the young ball-carrier handled a sizable workload.

Defensively, the Broncos looked just as good as they did on the other side of the ball. Bishop were able to get into the backfield regularly, disrupting the team’s timing of the Sierra offense.

The great defensive line play helped Mark Mayhugh wreak havoc in the secondary. Mayhugh had 4 interceptions, returning one of them to the house for a 30 yard pick-six.

The Broncos improved to 4-2 in the regular season, and are on a three game winning streak, which is the first time Bishop Union have been able to accomplish such a feat under Arnie Palu.

League play begins next Friday at Kern Valley next week. Kickoff is set for 7:00 PM.

Broncos Rebound from Loss to Rosamond

It took a few innings for the Bishop boys to realize they needed to bring it. A slow start turned into a 5 inning win VS the Desert Scorpions on Thursday afternoon at Bishop High.

Maloney finishing a double play to end the top of the first inning.

The first two innings were a continuation of the Rosamond game where the Broncos were embarrassed on their own field.

Lukas can dance after all… Who knew?

In the middle of the 3rd inning, Coach Omohondro pulled the team to the side and let them know exactly how he felt. It was memorable for me as I get the luxury of hanging out in the dugout during the games.

Molina belting a triple!
Safe !!

The Broncos decided to wake up after that pep talk and dropped 4 runs on the Scorpions in the bottom of the 3rd inning.

And now the teams turn to show some love.

That coach “O” love carried over in the 4th inning with the Bronco bats finally living up to their potential, pounded out 10 runs against the Desert Scorpions.

Justin Yates saving his face from a fastball.
Bronco Shortstop Michael Kubiak doing what he does best.
Looked painful at the time.

Bronco Jr Jalen Watterson got the start on Thursday and pitched 4 innings giving up just 5 hits against the Scorpions. Jalen helped his own cause with his bat hitting a RBI double and a Home Run over the right field fence in that 10 run 4th inning.

Up next for the Bishop Varsity team in the Cal City Ravens coming to town next Tuesday for Senior Day at Bishop High School.

Cal City is a tough match up and this should be a great game for you all to get the “Bronco Flu” and come out and support the final regular season home game for our Bishop seniors.

Bishop Varsity Baseball VS Frazier Mountain

BATS STAY HOT AT HOME

Bronco bats were alive and kicking again on home turf against the Frazier Mountain Falcons.

The Falcons only had 8 players at game time so the Bronco’s loaned a body. Junior Hunter Beall was the first Bronco to head over to the Falcon dugout and play right field for the opponents. It was weird, but Hunter being the team player that he is handled it. What was really weird, Hunter came up to bat FOR the opposing team in the 3rd inning off Bronco starting pitcher Austin Thomas and  blasted a long line drive over Mike Molina’s head in center field  for a ground rule double that gave the Falcons their first RBI of the game ! Ya….weird right ? At this time the Bronco’s were already up by 18 runs, scoring 8 in the first and 10 in the second. But when Hunter crushed that baseball, both teams were cheering. This was a cool moment.

Bishop travels to Kern Valley this Friday for another league game against the Broncs.

Junior Bronco pitcher Austin Thomas pitched a great game giving up just one earned run in 4 innings.

BRONCO BASEBALL VS KERN VALLEY

The Bishop Broncos stay undefeated at home with a 31-1 trouncing of Kern Valley.  Don’t let the score fool you, it was a close game…….after the 1st inning. The Bronco boys only scored 2 runs in the first.

It took the varsity kids one inning to adjust to the “slower” velocity of KV pitching. Head coach Steve Omohundro was preaching patience from the first pitch and his team  listened. 9 runs in the second inning, 10 runs in the 3rd and 10 more in the 4th. Wow !!

Going beast mode at the plate on this fine afternoon was Bronco catcher Lorenzo Parra.  When not getting beaned by opposing pitchers,this kid can hit….Who knew ? Parra was knocking the seams out of the baseball at every plate appearance, going 4 for six with 10 RBI’s and hitting for the cycle.

It’s Bronco Baseball Season

Bishop Bronco Baseball Victorious vs Mammoth

New season, new faces, new coaching strategies? Head Coach Steve Omohundro has upped the ante with push-ups! There are a few ways Bishop Bronco players earn the right of doing push ups during the game. One of those ways is strikeouts. If a Bronco player strikes out, he gets the pleasure of doing 10 pushups before entering the dugout…. I like it Coach “O”! Pushup pictures next game for sure.

The Bronco team left the bases loaded in the 1st inning without getting any runs, (no team pushups for that) but the bats came alive in the 2nd inning, lighting up the scoreboard for 6 runs.

Individual stats at the plate:

Mike Molina 1 for 4

Lorenzo Parra 1 for 4 with 2 RBI

Michael Kubiak 2 for 5 with 1 RBI

Hunter Beall 1 for 4

Matt Rosga 2 for 4

Brodie Maloney 2 for 4 with 2 RBI

Justin Yates 1 for 3

The Mammoth pitching was getting in more hits than anyone, nailing Bronco batters with pitches all afternoon. Early season control problems?

Senior pitcher Justin Yates pitched a good game going 5 2/3’s innings giving up 2 runs on 5 hits. Junior pitcher Austin Thomas came in and closed out the game with the final score of 9-2 Broncos.

 

Next up the annual Yerington tournament in Yerington Nevada.
