Bronco Varsity Football Falls To Yerington in Three Overtimes!

The Bishop Broncos hosted the Yerington Lions, on Friday, in football action. In the Junior Varsity game, the Broncos improved their early season record to 2-0 as they would,once again, dominate the game. The Bronco JV squad logged 21 unanswered points, all in the second quarter, in their rout of the Lions. In their two early season games the Bronco JV Team has scored 47 points while opponents have yet to score any.

In the Varsity game, it was another defensive battle by both teams. The game was scoreless until just under nine minutes remaining in regulation when Luke McClean would run it in, from about 3 yards out giving the Broncos the lead 6-0. Kicker Christian Morales would make good on the point after and the Broncos led 7-0.

 

 

With just over six minutes remaining in the game, Lions Dante Reviglio would recover on a Broncos offensive turnover and rush it in. The point after attempt was good and the game would end in regulation tied at 7.

That set up overtime. Neither team was able to score in the first two overtimes and led to overtime number three. The Broncos would have the ball, first, with an opportunity to score from 25 yards out. However, the Lions defense was stubborn and held the Broncos scoreless, in overtime.

The Lions were able to work their way towards the end zone and Running Back Steven Keats would get the game winning score rushing it in from about 4 yards out.

Coach Arnie Palu said “ Another outstanding defensive effort, but Yerington managed a defensive score of their own in the 4th quarter to force overtime. We played 3 overtimes with the Lions breaking through for the win. I’m proud of my kids effort.”

Luke McClean would lead the Broncos with 60 yards rushing and Wesley Pettet contributed 56 yards. McClean also led the Broncos with 65 yards through the air and Clay Omohundro had 13 yards.

 

Wesley Pettet, also, led the Broncos with 12 tackles and Senior Patrick Flanigan had one sack on the night.

The Broncos will have a bye this week and get ready to host Rim Of The World on Friday, September 7th.

Bronco Football Teams Victorious in Home Opener

Both the Bronco Varsity and Junior Varsity football teams hosted their first home games of the 2018 football season on Friday against Ontario Christian.

In the Junior Varsity game it was all Bishop as the Broncos would dominate the game and shutting out Ontario Christian Knights 26-0.

The Bishop JV’s were led on the ground by Freshman Luis Cruz who would carry the ball 5 times for a total of 79 yards and one touchdown, one fumble return for a touchdown and one punt return for a touchdown. Sophomore Jordan Cooper carried 15 time for 53 yards and one touchdown.

The Varsity game was a hard fought defensive battle. The Broncos switched Junior Luke McClean and Sophomore Clay Omohundro at quarterback throughout the game keeping the Ontario Christian Knights on their heels. Omohundro was 4 for 9 for 27 yards and McClean was 2 for 2 for 2 yards.

McClean led the Broncos on the ground with 17 carries for 129 yards, followed by Steven Paco carries 5 time for 24 yards.

Both teams had opportunities, early in the game, to score but defenses were able to hold. Ontario Christian would go for a field goal attempt in the first half, but, the Broncos blocked the attempt.

The only score of the game came with 9:28 remaining in the fourth quarter, when Luke McClean would run the ball in from 11 yards out on a quarterback keeper.

The point after attempt was no good.

The Broncos will now host the Yerington Lions this Friday evening. Junior Varsity game is at 4 with the Varsity Game at 7. Pre-game air time on 1230 AM KBOV will be at 6:50.
