Bronchos rally past Chattanooga

CENTRAL HIGH — Forget going out with a bang, the Central High Bronchos decided to go out with a comeback Friday night.

Down 13 points at the end of the first quarter to No. 13 ranked Chattanooga, the Bronchos responded with a strong second half which saw them pull off the upset, 62-57.

“We dug that hole in the first quarter, and we knew Chattanooga was a top caliber team,” Central coach John Nease said. “There’s a reason they are ranked because they can play well. It took us a second to regroup, and once the first quarter ended our guys woke up and made adjustments.”

Fans in Broncho Gymnasium could sense a comeback was in the cards at the end of the third quarter, when the Warriors lead was a slim three points at 46-43.

Another impressive feat to the Bronchos comeback was they did it with junior Kevin Harris having to sit on the bench with four fouls during the latter part of the third quarter.

“We got to a point in the game where Kevin had to let up a little bit,” Nease said. “Kevin is a very aggressive basketball player and I didn’t want to keep him from playing that way. It allowed me to see other guys step up and not be afraid of the opportunity that was presented to them.”

Central High managed to take its first lead of the night at the 6:42 mark of the fourth quarter at 48-46, fueled by quick fast break points and tough defense down low.

Chattanooga though wasn’t finished as the Warriors snatched the lead back at 53-52 with 2:40 left in regulation.

But, the Bronchos took the lead for good at the 1:56 mark at 55-54 as CHHS claimed one of its biggest wins of the season.

Central High managed to cut the lead down to 31-22 at the halftime break, before taking control in the third and fourth quarters.

Dallin Ferrin led the Bronchos (13-8) with 26 points on the night, with Kevin Harris scoring 10 points. John Repp scored nine points while Ian and Zarek Hickman both scored five points. Connor Albiston put in four points while pulling down a team-high 12 rebounds.

For the Warriors (16-8) Christian Soliz scored 15 points with Chase Malcolm adding 14 points. Connor Karpe put in 12 points on the night.
