Bishop got on the board first with a clutch 3rd down touchdown pass from Jakob Redman to Colt Matteson.  Bishop’s 6-0 lead quickly became a 19-6 Boron lead at the close of the first half.  The Bronco defense shut down the wildcats in the second half allowing the team to mount a strong comeback.  Cain Omohundro keyed the defensive effort including a forced fumble.  Jakob Redman connected with Austin Halfen and Kenyan Piper for second half touchdown passes.  Reece Marsh drilled 2 point after kicks giving the Broncos at 22-19 win.
Coaches Comments, “Big rushing efforts from Chevyo Marquez and Kenyan Piper kept the drives alive for the Broncos. The offense line played the best game they have played all year against the bigger Bobcat lineman. It was a huge team effort to win this game.”

The Bishop Division 2 team is coached by Head Coach Will Lyons, Assistant coaches Chris Matteson, Thom Batchelder, Steve Omohundro, Ronny Georgeson and Chuck Steedle.
