Bishop Girls dominate Rival Kern Valley

Bishop Union High School Girls Basketball crushes KV

A very physical game favored the tough Bronco girls Wednesday night as they beat up rival Kern Valley 52-30 wrapping up a perfect 8-0 league record.  Bishop was much more comfortable in the “no blood, no foul” game.  The Broncos used a physical defensive effort opening a 13-5 lead at the close of the first quarter.  Junior Sabrina Barlow keyed the defensive effort shutting down Kern Valley’s top player Rebecca Gallis.  Barlow’s tough play frustrated Gallis limiting her to 11 points.  Gallis, daughter of head coach Bill Gallis, entered the game averaging 27 points per game.  Barlow was the defensive star on senior night, while senior Tamia Shoshone padded her MVP resume with yet another double double.  Shoshone, daughter of head coach Rebecca Andreas, scored a game high 18 points and pulled down 12 rebounds.  Bishop will enter the CIF central section playoffs at the #1 team out of the High Desert League.  The bracket will be posted Saturday.

Varsity Boys Basketball
Bishop built a 12-6 lead midway through the 1st quarter, but Kern Valley’s tight defense would limit Bishop to just 2 field goals the remainder of the half.  Kern Valley outscored Bishop 20-7 in the second quarter building a 31-19 halftime lead.  KV would maintain a very comfortable lead in the second half winning 56-35.  Bishop finishes with a 2-6 HDL record and 13-15 overall record eliminating them from the post season.  Had Bishop beat KV, the Broncos would have hit the required .500 record required to submit a petition for postseason play.  The broncos honored their 5 seniors prior to the game.  River Mallory, Ryan Lent, Jake Traynor, Thomas Montoya and Ty Tucker all played their final games Wednesday night.  Sean Brown and Ryan Lent were the standouts for the Broncos playing with great energy on a night where the Broncos struggled overall.
Sean Brown 13, Thomas Montoya 9, Ryan Lent 6, River Mallory 4, Brandon Forrest 3.

JV Boys
The JV boys capped a 16-0 season with a 30-23 win over rival Kern Valley.  Bishop led 28-14 at the start of the 4th quarter and for a second straight game scored just two fourth quarter points.  The Broncos played just enough defense to hold on for the win. Congratulations to Coach Gordon Moose and assistant Chris Eldridge on their perfect season.
Trace Sapp 15, Tommy Ruelas 7, Anthony Vega 6, Gene Dondero 1, Mike Molina 1.

Bishop Girls Soccer Wins HDL

BUHS Girls Soccer wins the HDL title

The Bishop varsity girls soccer team traveled to Bakersfield Thursday defeating rival Kern Valley claiming the outright High Desert League title.  Bishop won 2-0 improving to 7-0-1 in league play.   Scoring goals for the Broncos were senior Brenda Gonzalez and sophomore Karla Castilla.  Coach Manny Terasas commented, “The team played well. Great play all around. Kila Miller stepped up in the back playing great defense. Brenda Gonzalez had a great goal from a free kick about 25 yards out.  The other goal came off a great run by Kailyn Boxley. She took a shot to the far post. The keeper for Kern made a great save, but the rebound was put away nicely by Karla Castilla.”  Terasas closed by saying, “I am very proud of the girls.  We had some key injuries in the game but the subs filled in nicely.”

The Bishop varsity boys defeat Kern Valley 8-2, with 4 goals for senior Elijah Alexander, two goals for freshman Diego Solorio, and one goal each for seniors Joe Domke and Joey Griego.
