Bishop Broncos JV Boys Basketball Narrowly Defeat Kern Valley 39-35
Update from 1/17/23 game in Kern Valley
The Bishop Bronco JV basketball team kept their undefeated league season rolling along last night in a low scoring hard fought battle against a scrappy Kern Valley team. As Broncos have come accustom to doing, they started off strong taking a 12 point lead into the half. However, the long bus ride caught up to the kids in the second half as shots weren’t falling and Kern Valley took a lead with 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter. Bishop withheld the run and came out on top with a final score of 39-35.
It was a good win for us. We had to do it on the defensive end as our shots weren’t going down. We forced over 20 turnovers, turning a lot of those into layups. Overall it was another even scoring performance. Emory Dondero lead with 12, followed by Richie Talavera with 8, Will Kemp with 7 and Weston Dondero, Elijah Reynolds and Trace Sietz adding 4 each. Everyone played huge on the defensive end and it was a gutsy performance by the whole team pulling out the win.
