Bronchos barrel past Rush Springs

CENTRAL HIGH — Perhaps the only thing that didn’t go right for the Central High Bronchos on Tuesday, was the fact their streak of scoring 70 points a game came to an end.

But, on a more important note CHHS’ winning streak is alive and well heading into the holiday break.

A 7-0 lead in the first quarter sent the Bronchos on their way, as Rush Springs put up a fight but eventually fell 66-37.

“We came out with a lot of intensity and jumped out to an early lead,” Central coach John Nease said. “I felt like we tried to do too much on offense in the beginning. They collapsed back into a 2-3 zone and we had to beat them from outside. When a team does that we need to step up and hit and we eventually did.”

By the time the fourth quarter began, the Bronchos were well in command at 54-31 as the lead grew to thirty points at 63-33 with 5:14 left in the fourth.

But, to the Redskins credit they made life difficult early on for Nease and his squad.

After a fast start to begin the game, RSHS made sure they were going to return the favor in the second quarter as they closed the gap to 17-13 with 7:22 left in the quarter.

However, this only seemed to wake up the Bronchos’ offense as they exploded for a 22-11 run into halftime, taking a 39-24 lead into the break.

Five made three-point shots also helped to the cause, as senior Dallin Ferrin turned in another solid performance with 26 points to lead all scorers.

When the horn sounded, the Bronchos found themselves at 9-2 overall and on a six game winning streak heading into the holiday break.

Connor Albiston put up 10 points in the contest, with John Repp scoring eight.

Zarek Hickman and Kevin Harris each scored six points for the Bronchos.

Keith Pittman led the Redskins with 18 points on the evening.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
