Bishop Union High School Girls soccer improves to 6-0 in High Desert League play. The win secures a share of the HDL championship as both Frazier Mt and Kern Valley have two losses with just two games to go. The Broncos HDL dominance continues with the 6-0 shut-out at California City high school Thursday. The Broncos girls were treated to waffles this past weekend prior to appearing on the Saturday Sports Roundup. Junior Defender Karla Castilla inspired the “Waffle-Fest” Saturday, and clearly the waffles were key to the victory at California City.

Bishop Union made quick work of California City Thursday with five more goals from super-freshman Katie Dohnel. The five goals at Cal City giving Dohnel 47 on the season. Bronco Defender Ritz Garcia got in on the scoring collecting her first goal of the season.
Bishop Union closes out HDL play with key home matches with Frazier Mt (Tuesday, Feb 9th) and Kern Valley (Thursday, Feb 11th). Both Frazier and Kern Valley are tied for second in the HDL with 4-2 records. A win or a tie in either match gives Coach Manny Terrasas and the Broncos the HDL championship.
