Bishop’s opening drive Friday night started at the Trailblazers 30 yard line after a 55 yard kickoff return by senior Clyde McCoy. Bishop would drive deep into Trailblazer’s territory before Jarod Dossy connected on a 25-yard field goal.
Sierra Canyon countered with an 80-yard scoring drive capped by a Kaiser Butler 25-yard touchdown. After quick starts, both offensive units would struggle for remainder of the half. Senior linebacker J.J. Cammarata made a pair of tackles for loss stalling drives and Junior Defensive end Hunter Kampmoyer sniffed out a screen pass, making a tremendous interception – stalling another Sierra Canyon drive.
The scoring drought would end with 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter when SC’s Kaiser Butler rambled in from 2-yards out putting Sierra Canyon up 14-3. Bishop came right back with a 73-yard drive capped by J.J. Cammarata 4-yard touchdown run. The point after was missed, putting the score at 14-9.
Sierra Canyon appeared to put the game away with a touchdown pass from quarterback Kohl Hollinquest to Ryan Rogero. The scoring strike came with just 1:38 to play. The Broncos hit a big play to stay alive with quarterback Ryan Graves connecting with Hunter Kampmoyer on a 64-yard touchdown with less than a minute to play. The Broncos attempted an onside kick, but an illegal touching penalty gave the ball to the trailblazers. A pair of Sierra Canyon kneel downs allowed the trailblazers to escape with the win.
