The BP Lady Warriors held on to win the Wednesday night rematch, after defeating the Lady Eagle JV by 20 two nights earlier. Lone Pine outscored BP 17-8 in the 3rd quarter, as the Lady Warriors ran their full court press for the first time this season. The press was not effective and LP capitalized by getting many uncontested layups. Starting the 4th quarter down by 7, 30-23, the Lady Warriors went back to their regular trap defense and got back in the game.

With just 19 seconds left in the game and the Warriors up by 2, an intentional foul was called on BP. Lone Pine still had a chance to win the game after 1 free throw was made and then given the ball out of bounds. However, after several shots attempts, BP was able to secure the rebound and close out the win.

BP Coach Bob Church- “This game was exactly what I feared. We beat them two nights earlier and I knew Liz Stewart was a good coach and would work them hard, going over our trap. LP improved tremendously, were much more scrappy than earlier and hit shots they weren’t able to hit Monday night.”

“I tell the girls it’s a team game and they’re all important to the team. It certainly showed tonight, as all 8 girls scored at least one point, with each point needed in this one. I have to say that I was certainly not proud of the way we played, but I was very proud of all of our girls for not giving up, when we could have easily just packed it in. I believe our girls learned a lesson- just not a hard lesson.”

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.

Big Pine Girls At Coleville

Submitted by Coach Bob Church

GAME # 1
Coleville Girl’s Varsity         54
Big Pine Girl’s Varsity         40

Despite having only one Senior (Kaylee Simpson) on the team and facing Coleville with 5 Seniors, the Lady Warriors held their own on the road Friday night in Coleville at the Antelope Valley Lions Club Basketball Tournament.

Big Pine has a young team with 3 freshmen, 3 sophomores, 2 juniors and the one returning senior. BP’s tallest player is 5’5″ tall and two of BP’s players, the Meza twins, are under 5″ tall. The 4 returning players and one of those (Soph. Paaku’u Dewey out with a hand injury) remembered the beating (54-12) they took from Coleville a year ago and knew they would certainly be tested.

The 1st quarter saw Big Pine’s 5’5″ Junior AnahKee Mason battle Coleville’s 5’10” Shaylor McCann on the boards and put in 6 for the Lady Warriors, even tho McCann had 10 of her 21 points in the first quarter.

Sophomore Lauren scored all 6 of BP’s points in the 2nd period, to help keep the Lady Warriors close at half.
A few needed adjustments at half helped limit Coleville’s Top Gun McCann to only 5 second half points, and BP sophomore Lauren Simpson answered with 12 (of her game high 25) in the 3rd to keep BP close.
BP battled Coleville throughout the 4th period, cutting the lead to 6 with 4 minutes to go in the game, but a couple of late Coleville baskets mounted the deficit to the final score of 54-40.
Warrior coach Bob Church, returning to head coach after several years as assistant—” I was very pleased with the efforts of the girls. The girls hard work at passing passing has paid off, as we had 13 assists on 18 baskets. Seven different girls had at least one assist. They were being so unselfish.”

Grade  Big Pine Players                       Pts.    Rebs.    Assts.    Steals

9        Gabby Meza—didn’t score, but had 4 rebs, 2 assts, and 2 steals
9        Raven Duckey—despite being sick most of the week, contributed on “D” and had 2 rebs

GAME 2
Big Pine Lady Warriors     51
Sage Ridge (Reno)                 23

Disappointed by the score but not by their play the previous night, the Lady Warriors new the game against Sage Ridge was one not to be taken lightly. Last year, BP defeated Sage Ridge by 12 and the girls were ready to even their non-league season record at 1-1.

The 1st quarter saw Sophomore Lauren Simpson keep her hot hand, as she scored 9 of BP’s 15 points. She would end up with a game high 22 points. Gena Lewis added 4 points to go along with her 3 first period assists. Freshman Cassie Meza tossed in 2 points in the first period.

Five different girls scored for BP in the 2nd period and then in the 3rd, Lauren Simpson again scored 9 to lead the Lady Warriors. Cassie Meza contributed 4, Gena Lewis 2 and Freshmen Gabby Meza helping with a free throw in the 3rd for BP’s 16 points.

In the 4th, Junior AnahKee Mason put in 4, Freshmen Raven Duckey 2, Gabby Meza 2 and Lauren Simpson 2 for BP.
Warrior Coach Bob Church— “Again, I was really pleased with the crisp passing the girls showed and I cannot ever remember a game in which a BP girl had 10 or more assists. Gena Lewis had and unbelievable afternoon with 10 assists, while 4 other girls had at least 2. We had 19 assists in our 24 baskets. Also, our three young Freshmen (Cassie Meza, Gabby Meza, and Raven Duckey) scored 15 combined points to go along with 11 rebounds.”
