Local Sports Program held their annual Senior All Star Basketball games tonight at Carson High School… It was great to see some of these players in action again. Check out more in the galleries.
The Bishop Manogue Miners visited Carson High tonight for the second game of the series… The Miners were quite aggressive with their base running tonight and took advantage of most every opportunity to put up a run they had. The Miners took the win at Carson tonight 10-3.
Here are a few shots from the night…
Boy, what a game! Hits, runs, home runs, stolen bases and even an ejection! What a baseball game! Carson visited Bishop Manogue today for the first of their home and away series with the Miners and walked away with a win, 7-6. The Senators jumped out in front in the second inning 4-1 after their coach was ejected from the game… Pretty shockingly (at least to me…) the NIAA scheduled an umpire with a previous ejection of a Carson High Coach at the end of last season… it quickly looked very reminiscent of that evening last spring…. if you’re going to be an umpire you need to have patience and pretty thick skin…
The game went down the the 7th inning and Manogue was battling but Carson relief pitcher, Senior Brandon Allen was able to battle through and get the last outs needed to give Carson the win. The battle continues on Monday at 6:00 PM at Carson High. Hope to see you out there!
Here are some shots from today’s game…
Bishop Manogue Miner Pitcher Alec West-Guillen, LOVE his facial expressions when he’s pitching!Carson Senator Senior Brandon Allen leading his team onto the scoreboard in the second inning!
I always wonder what they’re saying… 🙂Manogue has turf on the infield, the one thing photographically you loose when there’s no dirt infield is that little puff of dirt when the ball hits the glove… have to get that Monday night instead @ Carson.Jesse Lopez fielding a ball in left field.Brandon Allen tagging Anthony Galati out at third base.
I love Manogue’s scoreboard… makes a nice background for Webb Charles as he throws to first for an out.The forces of baseball… even on a young person’s arm… love the face Connor Pradere, so much focus!Senior Senator Brandon Allen getting it done on the mound…I love side arm guys… they’re body goes into the most graceful of positions… he looks like the π (pi) symbol to me… even has the little kick up of the front foot… 🙂 Manogue Pitcher Benjamin Rawlins.
The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (The NIAA…) held the Northern Nevada Regional Championships at Carson High this week…
On the girls side, both League Champions faced off tonight, Reno vs. Bishop Manogue. Reno didn’t seem to be able to match up well with Manogue’s pace and press and fell behind early and Manogue never looked back and cruised to a Regional Championship!
This is how Manogue dealt with Mallory McGwire… shoot over her before she can approach for the block… I’d guess Mallory holds some shot block record if someone was keeping track, she’s a wicked shot block force in the middle!
LOVE the crowd! What a great atmosphere tonight!The boys game tipped off 45 minutes later than scheduled… multiple factors… First was the TV crew… the whole world revolves around TV you know… 🙂 The second and probably larger factor… there were so many people inside that they had to start turning people away that were waiting in line outside… the place was PACKED!!
The two teams that tied for first in the Sierra League were back on the floor tonight, Carson got the 1st place nod due to the tie break but Galena came in with something to prove and very quickly showed that. Galena’s outside shooting game early in the first quarter was probably the nail in the coffin for Carson. Galena jumped out to and early lead and Carson tried to claw back but the deficit was too great and couldn’t manage. Galena will be headed to Vegas next week for the State Championships.
Congratulations and good luck in Vegas boys!
It’s always said that you want to pick a team for homecoming that you feel you can win, to make the night “better”… I don’t think that anyone at the stadium tonight would have predicted a 42-0 thrashing!
One thing was certain tonight, Carson was not going to loose. The opening kickoff was nearly run back for a touchdown… I believe it was less that a minute into the game and Carson already had a touchdown and a successful extra point…. Then they sent out a defense that may have well been from Mars because it rendered the Manogue passing game completely useless… the Manogue QB was 1 for 11 in the first half… This one’s going to be a tale of coaching in my book. Coach Roman dug into his magic bag of goodies and stunned Manogue tonight… and the fellas executed. Game over, NEXT! 🙂
Here are some images from the night. Blowout games are tough to photograph… OK, here’s Carson scoring… next, oh, and here’s Carson scoring… next… OH, OH, and HERE’S Carson scorning… again… yawn… 😉 ANYWAY…
Wait, wait, WAIT! I mentioned it was homecoming! Congrats to the King, Fred Christensen and Queen, Abbey Dudley!
And the entire 2014 Homecoming Court! Congrats to all of you!
I took a chance tonight and went down to the end zone… and Colby Brown ran right at me… Thanks Coach! 🙂Joe Nelson back for a pass…Ikela Lewis recording a sack… Brady Rivera in flight… wish I could see that face… oh well…
It sounds like we’ve not heard the last of this young man… Freshman QB Connor Noland at Manogue. He did show poise tonight… in my opinion, he was just the victim of Coach Roman’s wicked smart coaching. 🙂
