After nearly two years of no high school football in Bishop, the Broncos took the field against a familiar foe. The Lindsay Cardinals arrived in the Eastern Sierra looking for revenge after losing 22-16 in the CIF Central Section Division 6 semifinals in 2019.

A few days before the game, sixth year head coach, Arnie Palu reflected back on the semifinal game against the Cardinals saying, “That semifinal game against Lindsay was without a doubt the toughest game we had in 2019. However, we made necessary adjustments after falling down at the half and we were able to come away with a victory.”

However, the Broncos didn’t have much trouble this time around against Lindsay. From the start, Bishop was able to establish the run and scored on their first drive of the season. Senior running back, Zach Mojarro was the star of the night and got his first touchdown after he ran the ball to the outside for a five-yard touchdown.

The Broncos took the lead 6-0 and then missed the point after attempt.


Turnovers were a big problem for both teams on the night, but more so for Lindsay, who gave the ball away seven times on the night. The first turnover came when the snap went over the head of Cardinals quarterback, Samual Reyes. Bishop recovered the ball and picked up where they left off with another Zach Mojarro run to the outside. Bishop led 13-0 after the first quarter.

The Broncos weren’t as dominant in the second quarter, but still were able to score another touchdown thanks to another Mojarro run. Bishop took a 19-0 lead going into the half.


Bishop struggled at the beginning of the second half. They turned the ball over multiple times during the first portion of the second half. By the midway point of the third quarter, the Cardinals were able to pull within three points after senior quarterback, Jakob Redmond threw a pick six to Lindsay safety, Leonardo Duran. The score was 19-16 and the home crowd began to get a little bit nervous. However, Bishop responded well and fed their star running back, Zach Mojarro who was able to cruise up field for another touchdown to give the Broncos a bit of breathing room. The score after the touchdown was 25-16.

Bishop took over in the fourth quarter and dominated the rest of the affair. Zach Mojarro got two more touchdowns and Jakob Redmond scored off of a quarterback keeper. Mojarro’s second touchdown of the fourth quarter came late when Redmond found the running back unmarked on the far side of the endzone for a twenty-yard receiving touchdown.

Overall, it was a solid performance for the Broncos. Jakob Redmond was able to make some good plays with his feet, while Zach Mojarro was electric the entire night and is essentially the reason why the Broncos won the game on Friday. Other players who stood out included Cain Omohundro, who was able to make a few good plays both defensively and offensively. The star of the night on defense was defensive lineman Reese Dondero, who plugged up the middle of the trenches and did an effective job of generating pressure.

First Look at High School Football

The Tonopah High School Football Program has come out of the gates in record numbers. Head Coach Duffy Otteson has concluded his teams first week of practice with 30 kids starting the 3-hour-day practice week which included a Friday two-a-day.

“In my 13 years, this the biggest turn out we have ever had,” Coach Otteson said. By the time assistant Coach Bobby Murray released the team, he had 30 hungry boys in line waiting to chow down.

Like previous first week of Tonopah Muckers football practice, it is truly unique to watch these young men struggle through drills, soreness, fatigue and heat, only to dig deep by weeks end and find that extra something in themselves these young men never thought they had. A hard week of practice would conclude on Saturday with a bus ride to Mammoth to scrimmage against the Huskies.

Both JV &Varsity took there turns at the line of scrimmage on both offense and defense.   While everyone on both Tonopah and Mammoth saw their share of playing time, its was the coaches who finally got glimpses of what is their respective team’s potential.

Touchdowns were scored, mistakes were made, and the field saw its share of yellow flags, but by the end, sportsmanship was shown on both sidelines – kids helped each other up and shook hands by the end of the scrimmage.

These two teams run it back at it again on Friday, August 27at   7 p.m. on the season premiere of the “KIBS 107 FM High School Football game of the week”

Adam Gonzalez will be broadcasting the play-by-play action  for this game, LIVE on 100.7 FM in Mammoth and 101.7 FM in Tonopah, NV.

The Big’uns Continue – KIBS’ Exclusive Fishing Report

The Eastern Sierra continues to produce trophy-sized fish, provided with paid stockings by the resorts, towns, counties, and trout foundations.

With the warm weather, the key is fish early, before 8:00 a.m, and late  – after the sun goes off the water. And go deep.

CDFW advises if one does hook up midday, don’t fight the fish. With the water being so warm, by the time its in, it will be so fatigued and stressed, it  won’t survive efforts to catch and release.

Listen to our exclusive Eastern Sierra Fishing Reports, heard every Friday and Saturday on KIBS,  brought to you by Berkley Fishing.

Racing Resumes at Tonopah Speedway

This past Saturday night the Tonopah Speedway was rocking and rolling. The Hot Dogs were fresh, the beer was cold, and the racing was AWESOME! After 4 hours here’s how it all breaks down.

Patriotism prevails during opening ceremonies.

The #48 car “The Tonopah Hornet, Steve Stringer, out lasted Pahrump’s finest, Jay Ward, as these top two gave us a face for the ages. Jay Ward had the lead for most of the race holding off Stringer and every turn until the final few laps The Tonopah Hornet took the inside to take the lead and never looked back. Jordan Shelton in the #69 hobby finished 3rd and Goldfield’s favorite son, Matt Gillum, rounding out the top 4

The Mini Stock main event was not without controversy. In the final two laps, two of top four cars were black flagged for jumping the red on a restart. The winner of Mini Stock main event was car #52 Brandon “Fireball” Jones, who fought off “Bobaloo” Robert Otteson in his #7 mini stock.

KIBS sponsored “The Tonopah Bad Boy” Duffy Otteson, would hop in his brother Sterlynn Otteson’s #23 Pro Super Stock and take the checkered flag out lasting the Beall Boys, Keith and Tomas, James Thibodeaux, in his #2JT A Modified would take his second checkered flag of the season.

Lady Broncos Fall to the Scorpions

The Bronco Varsity Softball team took on the Desert Scorpions yesterday at the city park. The final score was a  Scorpion victory  5-1.

According to Head Coach Stacy Van Nest “We just couldn’t string our hits together to score more runs. Defensively we executed excellent bunt coverage and got the out every time. We have ended our regular season play as 5-3 in league and 5-5 overall. We are not sure what is next for the Broncos. Play off intent forms need to be turned in May 28 and the play off bracket will be released June 5. We are unsure if we will go for the play offs as of yet. And since we had to reschedule Boron, we do not know how we will finish in league as others teams have more league games to play. ”

Jasmyn Dondero pitched 7 innings and had 7 K’s and 7 hits.

Lauren Allen was 2 for 3 with a double.
Sadie Dishion was 1 for 2 with a double.
Jayda Jackson was 1 for 3 with a double.

Kayla Jackson was 1 for 2 and
MaNeSe Braithwaite was 1 for 4 at the plate.

Van Nest added “We would like to thank our seniors Lauren Allen, MaNeSe Braithwaite, Sadie Dishion, Jessica Doll, Jazmyn Dondero, and Kayla Rodriguez. We would also like to thank the City Park for great facilities and the parents for their support.”

As Stacy Van Nest mentioned, we will just have to wait and see if more softball is in the future for our Lady Broncos.

Bronco Baseball’s “Ace” Heading to UCLA

After a 7-4 win over the Mammoth Huskies on May 17, at the closing ceremony of league-play for the COVID-shortened season of the Bishop Broncos, 1st baseman, Ace Selters, made a special announcement.

Ace announced, to the cheers of fans, that he’s heading to UCLA  after graduation. Although he’s not part of the school’s baseball program . . .  yet . . .  Ace hopes to get a walk-on try-out once he settles in as a Bruin.

AM1230 KBOV’s play-by-play announcer, Rock Baker,  noted “Ace” is a great name for a baseball player.  Congratulations Ace.

The school, and fans, were just as proud of two other seniors. Pitcher Landon Kruse will be a Warrior at Indiana Tech. Catcher Breaden Gillem will become a Titan at Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne, IN. Both boys will be playing in their school’s baseball program.

A great group of senior athletes! Bishop Proud!
