Bronco Girls Play does not “Waffle” in Cal City

Bishop Union Girls Soccer stays unbeaten in HDL play

by Arnie Palu
February 5, 2016

Bishop Union High School Girls soccer improves to 6-0 in High Desert League play.  The win secures a share of the HDL championship as both Frazier Mt and Kern Valley have two losses with just two games to go.  The Broncos HDL dominance continues with the 6-0 shut-out at California City high school Thursday.  The Broncos girls were treated to waffles this past weekend prior to appearing on the Saturday Sports Roundup.  Junior Defender Karla Castilla inspired the “Waffle-Fest” Saturday, and clearly the waffles were key to the victory at California City.  (note-you can listen to the Saturday Sports show featuring the Bronco Girls Soccer team by clicking on the link on the left.)

Bishop Union made quick work of California City Thursday with five more goals from super-freshman Katie Dohnel.  The five goals at Cal City giving Dohnel 47 on the season.  Bronco Defender Ritz Garcia got in on the scoring collecting her first goal of the season.

Bishop Union closes out HDL play with key home matches with Frazier Mt (Tuesday, Feb 9th) and Kern Valley (Thursday, Feb 11th).  Both Frazier and Kern Valley are tied for second in the HDL with 4-2 records.   A win or a tie in either match gives Coach Manny Terrasas and the Broncos the HDL championship.

Varsity Boys

The Bishop Union high school varsity boys soccer team dropped a tough road match at California City Thursday.  Coach Peter Thomsen reports that Cal City beat Bishop 1-0 scoring the winning goal with just 4 minutes remaining in the match .

Coach Thomsen noted the play of goalkeeper Jerry Mendez who made several saves.  The loss moves Bishop into a tie with Cal City for 3rd place in the High Desert League standings.  Bishop finishes league play next week with critical home games against Frazier Mt (Tuesday, Feb 9th) and Kern Valley (Thursday, Feb 11th).

The BP Lady Warrior’s Basketball Team moved to 6-0 Friday night, but not before being whistled for an incredible 30 fouls. BP held the Crusaders from Immanuel Christian scoreless until there was less than 1 second remaining in the first period. A Lady Crusader received three free throws on what was actually a pass, but was ruled a 3-point shot attempt. The Crusader made two of the three free throws, with 0.6 seconds left in the quarter. In the first half alone, Immanuel Christian was awarded 20 free throws, making only 6. With their two first half baskets, Immanuel Christian found itself trailing by only 9 points, 19-10. In that first half, six different Lady Warriors scored.

In the second half, Lady Warrior Gena Lewis found teammate AnahKee Mason for five of her seven 2nd half baskets and Big Pine’s lead would grow to 27 points early in the 4th quarter. Also scoring in the 2nd half were Cassie Meza (3 pts), Paaku’u Dewey (4 pts), Lauren Simpson (5 pts), Gena Lewis (2 pts).

Big Pine’s defense would hold Immanuel Christian’s best offensive player without a bucket until about two minutes left in the game, when she hit a deep 3-pointer. For the game, Immanuel would shoot 34 free throws.

Warrior Coach Bob Church“This was really a frustrating game, in that it should have been a much easier win than it was. Immanuel was really up for us with a big crowd, but the team and I really do have to thank our great supporters who made the trip. We had a bunch of people down there. They really were supportive and helped energize our girls to overcome some unique adversity.”

Coaches Comments, Bob Church, “Both Trona and Big Pine came into last night’s game undefeated in Hi-Lo League play, so the winner would put themselves in the driver’s seat for Hi-Lo League Champions, with three league games to play. The Lady Warriors half court trap was too much for Trona early on with all nine Lady Warriors playing in the first period. The Lady Warriors lead after one period was12-6.  The Lady Warriors stepped up the defense, again creating numerous turnovers and then capitalizing as they scored 19 in the quarter to Trona’s zero (0).At half, Lady Warrios point guard Lauren Simpson had 14 points to lead the way, but tight defense, especially by Paaku’u Dewey, who had 7 first half steals, was certainly key. Halftime score was 31-6 in favor of Big Pine. In the third and fourth quarter, Big Pine tried some different rotations with people in unfamiliar roles and the Tornadoes outscored Big Pine 30-24. At one point in the third period, Big Pine led by as many as 27 points.  Obviously, I was very happy with our play in the first half, especially on “D”.  We still missed several easy shots, but overall, we ran the offense and defensive scheme well. It was a nice win and all 9 girls definitely had a hand in it. We’ll just need to convert more of our transition opportunities. Also I was happy with the improvement in free throw shooting, as we made five out of eleven on the night.”
Big Pine improves to 5-0 in Hi-Lo league play.
