Bronchos outpace Donkeys, 78-50

BRAY — If the Central High Bronchos opening game was the calm before the storm, then Donkey Gymnasium felt the impact Tuesday night.

A 29-0 run by the Bronchos in the first quarter set the tone for the evening as Central High crushed Bray-Doyle in the boys game by a score of 78-50, handing first-year B-D coach Lee Ledford his first loss of the season.

“Our guys understood what happened in the first game,” Central High coach John Nease said. “I take the blame for what took place and the loss in our opener. We worked on not fouling in this game and staying calm. Our game plan was playing with intensity but staying under control at the same time and I feel like we did that tonight.”

Despite the Donkeys making a run late in the fourth quarter, trimming the lead to 68-48 with 2:40 left in regulation, the damage had been done long before then.

CHHS led 15-0 with 3:54 left in the first quarter, with hard play on both sides of the ball setting the pace for the Bronchos.

 B-D found life tough in the lane as Central High senior Connor Albiston threw a block party, sending multiple Donkey shots flying down the court and into the wall.

In addition, Dallin Ferrin and the rest of the Bronchos could be seen flying down the court, cashing in on easy fast break opportunities, allowing CHHS to take a 47-6 lead into the half-time break.

“Connor is such a defensive threat down there,” Nease said. “You can’t drive against him without having to adjust your shot. I think we had good scoring across the board. We did force some shots that we weren’t supposed to, but we did run the fast break and execute it like we wanted to.”

At the end of the third quarter, the Bronchos were in cruise control as they led 59-25.

Leading the scoring for Central High (1-1) was Dallin Ferrin with 29 points, followed by John Repp with nine points. Ian and Zarek Hickman each scored eight points on the evening. Kevin Harris scored seven, while Kade Taylor put in six.

Bray-Doyle (0-1) was paced by Josh Goodrich with 21 points followed by Jessie Bearce with 14 points. Greg Perez scored five on the evening as well.

“Central is a great team and play very well together,” Ledford said. “Our guys have been practicing for about two weeks now. A few of my guys have been in football so we haven’t had much structure. We’ll get there during the season, but Central High is a really good team.”

Monday night Nov. 26 will see the Donkeys travel to Empire to face off with the Bulldogs while the Bronchos will host Sterling on Tuesday night Nov. 27.
