Bronchos fall to Big Pasture

CENTRAL HIGH — Those who were expecting a classical masterpiece in Friday’s contest between the Central High Bronchos and Big Pasture were sadly disappointed.

Both the Bronchos and the Rangers got physical, resulting in 24 fouls called in the first half alone.

However, it was Big Pasture, which managed to take advantage of the physical play and escape with a 67-61 victory on Friday.

“I’m very proud of the way these guys played tonight,” Central High coach John Nease said. “We’ve progressed a lot in less than a year and it showed tonight. The physical play though was what got us and those fouls came back to bite us.”

In what turned out to be an exciting fourth quarter, CHHS managed to get within one point at 62-61 with less than two minutes to go.

However, Big Pasture’s Donald Beckham had ice water in his veins as he sank five clutch free throws down the stretch to help seal the Rangers victory.

Early on in the contest though, senior post Connor Albiston was forced to sit out much of the first half due to getting three fouls in the first quarter.

Central High though was still able to keep things close, only being down 27-25 at the half.

“Not having Connor out there really hurt us,” Nease said about the foul situation. “But, when he was out there he played very well. Dallin (Ferrin) also played a great game. Most of these guys are still adjusting from football, so that’s something we need to work on.”

Another telling stat was free throws on both sides.

While Central High went 6-of-14 from the charity stripe, the Rangers were 26-of-43 in the contest.

Beckham led all scorers on the night with 23 points followed by Kyle Doty who scored 16 points for the Rangers.

Central High was paced by Dallin Ferrin with 20 on the evening, with teammates Kevin Harris and Connor Albiston each scoring 11.

Tuesday night will see the Bronchos back in action as they travel to play the Bray-Doyle Donkeys for an 8 p.m. tip-off.

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.
