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.
The motto of this years Varsity football team is “Family”. The Family had each others backs Friday night in Yerington Nevada. The Bronco boys rolled to a 29-12 victory.
Behind the arm and legs of Sophomore QB Luke McClean, who went 6 for 9 passing and ran for 79 yards on 12 attempts, the Bronco offense was clicking on the first game of the season.
Mike Molina is the new running back for the Broncos. and Molina took over the game with his efforts. He rushed for 108 yards with three touchdowns.
Sophomore Wesley Pettet scored his first ever Varsity TD on Friday Night. Pettet shined on defense with 6 tackles against Yerington.
The Bronco defense looked solid all game long. Edward Piper and Hunter Beall led all tacklers with 9 each.
Lorenzo Parra was strong on both sides of the ball. Parra had 2 key receptions in the 4th quarter on offense which kept the Bronco offense on the field and kept the ball away from Yerington which had some momentum in the second half.
Led by head coach Arnie Palu, this Bronco “Family” shined under the Friday Night Lights in Yerington Nevada. Next up – Boron for the Home Opener Friday Night, September 8th in Bishop.
