Coach Steve Parks Report from Rosamond
Nothing was easy Thursday night in Rosamond. Bishop Broncos
volleyball traveled to play the Roadrunners on their home court.
Bishop got off to a slow start with Rosamond’s strong serving but
fought back and almost won. The first game went to the Roadrunners, 23-25.
The Broncos came back fighting in the second game, taking an early lead with Sydney Frigerio’s serves. The Roadrunner defense turned back repeated attacks by Bishop but Bronco serving widened the lead. Despite a surge by Rosamond, Bishop won the second game, 25-18.
Game 3 was a repeat of the second game, with aces by Frigerio, and the Broncos won 25-18. Game 4 started the same way as games 2 and 3 but the Roadrunners fought back with great defense and took the lead from the Broncos. Bishop tied it back up but Rosamond pushed back harder and the Broncos eventually lost 23-25. However, the excitement began in the fifth game. Bishop took an early lead again but the Roadrunner defense and offense dominated with a 13-7 lead over the Broncos in a game to 15 points. The Broncos players dug deep inside themselves and began an incredible run that first tied the game 13-13 and then went on to win 16-14. Rachel Turner’s serves and Carly Todd’s finishing kill gave the match to Bishop.
