Bronchos buck Bulldogs

EMPIRE — The visiting Central High Bronchos shut down the Empire Bulldogs at home Tuesday night with points more than doubling the Bulldogs, 73-35.

The majority of the seven points scored by Empire during the first quarter came from No. 33 Cordell Setters’ three free throw points compared to the 10 points scored by the Bronchos No. 1 Dallin Ferrin and seven points scored by No. 3 Kevin Harris. The Bronchos ended the first quarter leading 23-7, which would be their smallest lead at the end of a quarter Tuesday night.

Setters again led the Bulldogs in scoring during the second quarter adding five points while Kevin Harris added seven for the Bronchos. The first half came to a close with the Bronchos leading 38-16.

The Bulldogs’s scoreboard saw a better second half with nine points scored in the third quarter and 10 points in the fourth quarter but it was not enough to gain the lead from the Bronchos. The Bronchos scored 25 points in the third quarter with 13 of those points coming from Ferrin and another 10 points in the fourth quarter to give them a final victory of 73-35.

Cordell Setters lead the Bulldogs in scoring with 10 total points including one 3-point shot and Dallin Ferrin’s 19 points including three 3-point shots lead the Bronchos.

Empire’s loss, which gives them a 2-2 record, will be a guide for practice this week. Coach Ryan Green said he would be working specifically on rebounding and defensive drills during practice this week.

“We definitely have some things to work on,” Green said. “I am proud of some things. We played hard. We just have to build on that.”

Central High Coach John Mease felt that a key component of their success at Empire was the execution of new offensive plays the team had worked on during practice.

“We worked on some new offensive this week in practice,”  he said. “I thought the kids executed them really well for them to be on one or two days of practice. They did well adapting to what Empire does. We took away their threats. Our athleticism helped us out.”

Despite the lead, Mease still has skills he would like to see improve during practice this week.

“We definitely have things to work on,” he said. “Our free throw percentage needs to come up. Our shooting percentage — When they leave us open outside, we have to be able to knock shots down. For the most part, I feel like my boys played an aggressive, good basketball game.”

Central High’s win Tuesday gives them a 3-2 record this season.

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.
