Bishop Crush Boron, Setting Up a Shot at High Desert League Championship

The Bishop Broncos continued their winning ways Friday, extending their winning streak to six games.  Bishop ended up beating Boron 40-15.

Fumbles occurred frequently in this game, with Boron coughing the ball up five times on the evening. The first one happened on the opening kickoff, when Boron captain, Kade Garrett lost the ball inside his own twenty.

Bishop started their first drive inside the Bobcat 20, but were unable to score inside the red zone, and turned the ball over on downs. Boron took over from their own 20 and ended up scoring off a run to the outside by Kade Garrett. The Bobcats then scored a two-point conversion thanks to a pass to the left side to Kade Garrett once again.

Arnie Palu’s team started their drive with good field position, but were not able to score, turning it over on downs once again.

The first score of the game for Bishop came after a Boron fumble, which provided the Broncos a short field. Bishop were able to score thanks to quarterback, Luke McClean’s athletic prowess. McClean weaved his way up the middle on a read-option and ended up scoring the first Broncos touchdown of the game.

After McClean’s touchdown,  the team began to impose their will on the ground with both Steven Paco and Wesley Pettet scoring one-yard touchdowns.

Luke McClean ended up with player of the game honors, scoring three touchdowns with 81 yards rushing. McClean now has back to back games with three touchdowns.

The Broncos will have an extremely tough matchup against Cal-City. The upcoming game will decide who the High Desert League champion will be. Both teams are undefeated in league. The High Desert League championship game will take place at 7:00 PM at Bishop Union High School next Friday.

Bishop Man Killed by Semi-Truck In Reno

A Bishop resident was struck and killed by a semi truck in Reno, NV Monday evening. Eugene Bowman, a 72 year old male, was hit at the intersection of N. Virginia St. and N. McCarran Blvd. around 7:00 PM.

About thirty minutes later, police arrived to the scene and discovered Bowman’s body near the Our Mother of Sorrows cemetery.

Police believe that Bowman was hit in the travel lane by the truck, which was going southbound. After the incident occurred, the driver remained on the scene.

Reno Police Department Public Information Officer, Travis Warren said, “The death of Eugene bowman is currently under investigation. Right now, we know that Mr. Bowman was struck by a semi-box vehicle in the travel lane. The box truck driver is currently cooperating with our investigation. The accident was fatal and we are currently undergoing procedures with detectives and authorities.”

Warren also said that there is a chance of a hit and run being involved in Bowman’s death. “There is a possibility of another vehicle being involved according to an eye-witness.” Warren went on to say, “The witness alleges that a second car struck Bowman and fled the scene. At this point, however, that claim is currently unsubstantiated and the investigation is still ongoing.”

Police believe that neither speeding nor controlled substances are in play in this investigation.

Anyone with any information on the crash should contact the Reno Police Department at (775) 334-2115 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900.

Warren Street Improvements

Warren Street Update

submitted by the City of Bishop, Public Works Department.

Next week, concrete work on the City of Bishop Warren Street Improvements project is expected to continue on Warren between Academy and Pine. In following weeks, concrete work is expected to move back to Academy between Main and Warren and then move to a parking lot on South Warren. The relocation of an underground phone cable has interfered with the work on the north side of the Warren and Academy intersection. A delay in getting the new cable could push the completion of work in this intersection into early May. Before this delay came to light, the contractor was planning to
have the entire project complete about the beginning of May. The intention is still to have the entire project complete before Mule Days.

Construction on and near Warren Street in downtown Bishop involves the closure of streets, intersections, sidewalks, and driveways. Access is still available to businesses in the area but, in most cases, it would be better to park nearby and walk a block to visit your favorite local business. Access to city parking lots is normally still available during construction, but entrances may be different and driveways and parts of the lots may be closed due to the construction. Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards require attention, even when work is not underway. When signs say a road is closed, please don’t drive on it. There are probably hazards you are not aware of. The contractor on the project normally works 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Thursday and has Fridays off.
