by Arnie Palu

The Lone Pine Golden Eagles varsity boys basketball team held off a Bronco outside shooting attack winning 71-57 Tuesday night.  The Golden Eagle Varsity Boys victory kept Bishop Union from sweeping the series of games at Bishop’s Gus Klekas Gym.   Lone Pine’s Ryan Cappello scored 11 of his game high 24 points in the Golden Eagle’s 29 point 4th quarter.   Bishop was paced by junior Sean Brown who connected on seven three point baskets.  The Broncos hit fourteen 3’s on the night.

Great free-throw shooting and clutch play by senior Ryan Cappello were key in Lone Pine’s 71-57 win.  Cappello hit 10 of 12 from the line including 5 of 6 in the Golden Eagles big 4th quarter.  Cappello had the look of a senior who would not be denied in the games final minutes.  Ryan finished with a game high 25 points, 11 in the fourth quarter.
Lone Pine led 32-20 at the half, but that lead quickly evaporated as the Broncos heated up from long range.  Sean Brown connected on a trio of three point shots in the third quarter giving Bishop the lead.  The Broncos doubled up Lone Pine in the third, outscoring the Golden Eagles 20-10.  A Brad Greene three point play with 30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter kept Lone Pine on top, 42-40.
In the forth quarter Bishop’s Sean Brown and Andrew Allen both hit a pair of three’s keeping Bishop close, and senior Ziggy Armitage drilled a three to tie the game at 52-52 with 5 minutes to play.  But with the game on the line Lone Pine’s stars stole the show.  Brad Greene, Ryan Cappello, and Garrett Sullivan saved their best for last.  Sullivan completed a three-point play early in the quarter, Greene cleared the boards while scoring seven of his 23 points, and Cappello took over the game pouring in 11 points.  The trio combined to connect on 9 of 10 fourth quarter free-throws.
