Bishop Union travels to Mammoth
The annual Bronco-Huskie football match up kicks off tonight at 7pm. Long time Bishop Union High School football coach Bill Egan will lead the Broncos onto Mammoth’s Gault/McClure field against first time head coach Bubby Greene. Egan, in his 15th season as head coach, holds a 13-2 record against the Huskies while Greene leads his team in the rivalry game for the first time. Egan led teams are 12-2 vs the Huskies in the regular season and 1-0 in the playoffs. Tom Gault coached Huskie teams topped the Broncos in 2002, 35-0 and in 2007, 20-18. The 2002 Broncos avenged their regular season loss with an inspired 2nd round CIF playoff win 61-14. Greene, a Mammoth High School Graduate, has played in the rivalry game and served as an assistant coach, but tonight is his first taste of the rivalry as the head man of Huskie football.
Tonight’s (Friday, September 11th) game kicks off at 7pm and will be broadcast live on 100.7 KIBS and streamed live here at kibskbov.com. Rock Baker and Arnie Palu will have the call.
