New Logo for the Knights

We’ve been very hard at work this off-season, so it has been great to finally see all of our work slowly begin to come to fruition. A local lacrosse leader and true ambassador to the game, Shawn Carman, worked with us this to create a new logo for our program. We wanted something that would really help us to stand out from the crowd, but stay true to our roots and represent Bishop Kelly.

Needless to say, Shawn knocked this one out of the park!

Knights Find New Success on Senior Night

The Bishop Kelly Knights (3-7, 4-10) took on the top-seeded Eagle Mustangs (9-1, 10-3) Wednesday night, celebrating their Seniors and looking to continue their growth. Despite a strong start, the Knights would be unable to overcome a very disciplined Mustangs squad, who took advantage of any and all errors made by the Knights.

The Knights would come out with a special vibe Wednesday, recognizing their Seniors and knowing all to well this would be their last home game of the season. Despite scoring the first goal on a quick fastbreak to John Alder (Sr, A), the Mustangs would answer quickly with four goals of their own. Once the Knights were able to settle in a little bit, Jared Dolby (Sr, M) would respond with one of his own to bring the score to 4-2 after one quarter of play.

A unified defense would help keep the Mustangs’ powerful offense somewhat corralled through the portions of the game. A strong individual effort by several of the Mustangs though, would keep them at a comfortable distance ahead of the Knights. Bishop Kelly would tie the game at five a piece on goals from Ryan Frechette (So, A), Robbie Rebholtz (Sr, M), and another from Dolby before Eagle would go on a run of their own, stretching out the lead to 9-5 of four quick goals in the last three minutes of the half.

After halftime, the Knights would look to chip away at Eagle’s lead once again, scoring two more goals, both from Frechette to Alder. The Mustangs would continue to score in bunches and gained a little more cushion in the third, bringing their total to 13-7 after three.

With one quarter left to play, both teams would settle down and look to find gaps in each other’s defense. Only Eagle would have success this quarter, thanks to strong goalie play by the Mustangs netminder. The Mustangs would finish the game with a 15-7 lead, securing their first place seed in the playoffs and giving the Knights plenty more to work on.

The Knights will turn to the Centennial Patriots (2-8. 5-12) now, for their last game of the regular season this Saturday at 1:30 PM at Hobble Creek Park. Bishop Kelly edged out Centennial in their previous meeting 12-11 in OT. With playoffs beginning next week, the Knights will look to continue their growth and keep building towards a strong run in the playoffs.

Knights Continue to Improve

Despite making great strides in wins over Coeur d’Alene and Lake City, the Knights struggled to close out in back to back games against the Timberline Wolves (10-1, 12-4) and Mountain View Mavericks (7-2, 9-3).

Bishop Kelly @ Timberline
On Wednesday, April 29th, Bishop Kelly would travel to Timberline to take on the Wolves for their Senior night. It would be a back and forth battle all night long, with the Wolves coming securing their victory in the final minute of play.

Timberline would start the scoring off Wednesday night, but the Knights would return back to back goals just a few minutes later from John Alder (Sr, A) to take the lead after one. The second quarter would be much of the same back and forth, with both defenses tightening up, goalies staying on their toes, and offenses becoming more and more patient with their shot selection. The Knights’ lone goal of the second quarter would come from Alder again, giving him a hat trick on the game.

Knotted at three, both teams came out from half ready for action, just the Wolves a little more so. Timberline would control the pace of play and score two unanswered goals in the third and taking a 5-3 lead going into the final quarter of play.

The fourth quarter would see each team finding their groove, trading goals back and forth through the final twelve minutes of play. The Knights would dig in and tie the score at six a piece thanks to goals from Jared Dolby (Sr, M), Clay Larson (Sr, M), and Henry Liao (Sr, M). Just seconds later, the Wolves would regain the lead, and then secure their victory as the Knights looked to force a turnover on their defensive end.

The Knights were led by John Alder with three goals on four shots, Robbie Rebholtz with six groundballs, and Grant Koehl forcing multiple turnovers and scooping up four of his own groundballs. Luke Kempers would register ten saves on the night, seven of those coming in the second half of play.

Bishop Kelly @ Mountain View
On Friday, May 1st, the Knights would make the short trip west to take on the Mavericks for a Friday night showdown. The Knights would come out strong, taking a 3-1 lead on goals from John Alder (Sr, A), Cole Anchustegui (Jr, A), and Ryan Frechette (So, A), making the Mavericks a touch uneasy on their home turf. A blanketing Knights’ defense would keep the Mavericks to just one goal for the entire first quarter, causing multiple turnovers and forcing the Mavericks into an unfamiliar situation out of the gate.

Bishop Kelly Boys Lacrosse

Mountain View would find their stride in the second quarter, outpacing the Knights four goals to one on a lone dodge from Ryan Frechette (So, A). With some regrouping at halftime, Bishop Kelly would come out and go toe to toe with Mountain View, continually chipping away on offense and increasing the pressure on defense.

After three, the Knights were still in range of pulling right back into the game thanks to goals from Alder and Jared Dolby (Sr, M), but the Mavericks still found a way to continually keep them at arms’ length, even stretching their lead by one to 9-6.

With just twelve minutes left to play, Bishop Kelly knew the pressure was on. The Knights would almost double their shots on the night with the fourth quarter alone, but couldn’t seem to find the cage, except for another goal from Alder (bringing his total to four goals on the night). Mountain View would score three more of their own and bring the spread to a much more comfortable final at 12-7 in favor of the Mavericks.

Offensively, Bishop Kelly was led by John Alder with four goals and four groundballs and Henry Liao clamping down the advantage at the face-off x and nine groundballs to boot. Defensively, the Knights were able to frustrate the powerful Mountain View offense thanks to strong performances from Grant Koehl (Sr, D), Nathan Miller (Sr, D), and Luke Kempers (So, G) in cage with ten saves.

Knights Go 2-0 in Doubleheader

After a heartbreaking overtime loss to Rocky Mountain Thursday night, the Knights would look to come out on top in a double-header Saturday against the Lake City Timberwolves (1-6, 3-6) and the Coeur d’Alene Vikings (0-6, 2-7).

In the first game of the day, slow and sloppy play would be all the Bishop Kelly Knights (3-5, 4-7) needed to light a fire and begin to build towards May. After a back and forth three quarters of play, which left the Knights with only a one-goal lead, Bishop Kelly would score ten unanswered goals to close out the game.

The Knights would be led by Henry Liao (Sr, M) and Robbie Rebholtz (Sr, M) at the face-off X, together winning 20 of their 24 total face-offs taken and scooping up 17 groundballs. Multiple Knights would get in on the action, with goals coming from Ben Shalz (Sr, A), Cole Anchustegui (Jr, A), Ryan Frechette (So, A), Jared Dolby (Sr, M), John Alder (Sr, A), Cooper Feeney (Jr, M), Nate Johnson (Sr, M), and Lucas Fehringer (Jr, M).

Bishop Kelly Boys Lacrosse

The afternoon match-up would find a much more disciplined Bishop Kelly team take the field, evident by their play from the first whistle. The Knights would take a 4-2 lead after one, 9-3 after two, 13-4 after three, and finish the game at 14-4.

This game would see the Knights’ defense begin to pressure out and challenge the Vikings’ attack and midfield units, collapsing hard and fast to any attack towards the cage. Senior defenders Grant Koehl, Austin Schaecher, and Harrison Montgomery stood out for the Knights, scooping up 10 GBs off forced turnovers. Offensively the Knights would be led by John Alder (Sr, A) with six (6) points on four (4) goals and two (2) assists and scooping up five (5) groundballs. Not to be left out, Ben Shalz would add three (3) goals and five (5) groundballs.

Bishop Kelly will now prepare for high-scoring Timberline Wolves (8-1, 10-4) this Wednesday at 6 PM at Timberline High School.

Lights Go Out on Knights’ Upset

With a disappointing loss fresh on their mind, the Bishop Kelly Knights (1-5, 2-7) looked to turn things around with a huge opportunity against the Rocky Mountain Grizzlies (5-2, 8-4). Just as the Knights were able to find their way to a lead, the Grizzlies would turn off the lights on any upset.

Despite a quick goal from Robbie Rebholtz (Sr, M) to Ben Shalz (Sr, A) to start off the game, the Grizzlies would come out hot and take a 4-1 lead through the first quarter. Knowing they needed to ride out the storm, the Knights would then buckle down, adding two more of their own from Cole Anchustegui (Jr, A) and Jared Dolby (Sr, M), while keeping the Grizzlies to just one goal, thanks to a seven (7) save performance in the second quarter from Luke Kempers (So, G).

After an uneventful third quarter for both teams, the flood gates would open up, with Bishop Kelly netting five (5) goals, their final one actually getting the lead back with 1:21 to play in regulation. Fourth quarter goals came from a quad of hot hands by Dolby and Shalz. Just as quickly as the Knights found themselves in the lead though, the Grizzlies would tie it up, responding with their eighth goal of the evening just 30 seconds after Bishop Kelly took the lead.

In overtime, the Grizzlies would take control of the opening face-off, secure a well-timed timeout, and set up for the final play of the game. Rocky Mountain would only need one dodge out of the timeout, finding the back of the net and securing the victory to the tune of 9-8.

Bishop Kelly will now prepare for a challenging double header against the Lake City Timberwolves and the Coeur d’Alene Vikings this Saturday at Bishop Kelly. Game times are set to 11 AM (LC) and 3:30 PM (CDA).

Knights Unable to Rein in the Mustangs

On an evening the Knights would soon like to forget, the Mustangs would simply be too hard to rein in, winning the game decisively by the score of 13-4, and dropping the Knights to 2-6 on the season.

Bishop Kelly Knights (1-3, 2-6) would travel to the Eagle Mustangs (5-1, 6-3) Wednesday night, hoping to break their two-game losing streak and recapture some momentum in league-play. The Mustangs would be quick to strike out of the gate, scoring their first goal just over a minute into play. Eagle would follow-up with two more scores before the Knights would be able to regroup and force some settled play. With the flick of a switch though, the Knights would find a gap in the stout Eagle defense and begin a run of their own, scoring three goals (John Alder (Sr, A) and Zach Little (Sr, M)) in the final two minutes of the first quarter to tie the game at three a piece.

From there though, the Knights would struggle to find any success on offense and a consistent method of slowing down the Mustangs on defense. While only keeping the Mustangs to two goals in the second quarter, Eagle would add three more answered in the third, and three more in the fourth before the Knights were able to find the back of the net. Alder would score in the fourth quarter on an unassisted goal to bring Bishop Kelly to four goals on the evening, followed up by two more goals from the Mustangs to close out the evening.

While the Knights would keep it close on groundballs and face-offs, the Mustangs would run away with the game in most every other aspect: outplaying the Knights between the lines, stonewalling any offensive possession, and doubling up on the Knights in shots.

Bishop Kelly will look to regroup for a big home match-up against the top-seeded Rocky Mountain Grizzlies (4-1, 7-3) this Thursday at Bishop Kelly High School at 7:30 PM.

Déjà vu for the Knights

Saturday was a bit of déjà vu for the Bishop Kelly Knights (1-2, 2-5), who played host to the American Fork Kavemen (5-6) out of Utah. Out of the gate and through the first half, the Knights battled back and forth with the Kavemen, but a sloppy third quarter would ultimately allow American Fork too much cushion to pull off the comeback.

After going scoreless and building a three-goal deficit for the first nine minutes of the game, the Knights came to life and rattled off four unanswered goals (two from John Alder (Sr, A), one each from Ben Shalz (Sr, A) and Zach Little (Sr, M) in an 80-second time frame to take the lead 4-3 after one. Just as quickly as the Knights came back though, they faltered – giving up three goals to their one, on an unassisted goal from Jared Dolby (Sr, M) to go down 6-5 after two quarters of play.

The third quarter would be the Knights’ demise Saturday, giving up five goals to their lone one on another unassisted goal, this time by Henry Liao (Sr, M).

Not to go down without a fight, the Knights looked to out-hustle the Kavemen in the fourth quarter. Tyler Spanfellner (So, LSM) would take it upon himself to clear the ball and score a goal just two minutes into the final quarter – hoping to light a much needed fire for Bishop Kelly. Liao would follow-up with another unassisted goal late in the fourth quarter, but sloppy play would be the ultimate obstruction for the Knights, keeping them from overcoming the five-goal third quarter by American Fork.

Bishop Kelly Boys Lacrosse

Despite the poor offensive showing, the Knights would run away with the groundball game, picking up over 50 of the ~80 groundballs.

Bishop Kelly will now focus their attention to the Eagle Mustangs (2-1, 3-3) for a showdown at Eagle High School on Wednesday, April 15th at 6:30 PM.

Rocky Third Quarter Trips Up Knights

Looking to build off the OT win over Centennial, the Bishop Kelly Knights (1-2, 2-4) took the field Wednesday night against the Rocky Mountain Grizzlies (3-0, 6-2). With Rocky Mountain riding a four-game win streak and securing strong league wins over both Boise and Centennial, the Knights knew they would have their hands full.

The action started quick Wednesday evening, with a Grizzly goal just twenty seconds into the first quarter. Bishop Kelly would take control of the next face-off, and many more that evening, thanks to the strong draw play from Henry Liao (Sr, M). The Knights would soon even the score on an unassisted goal from Jared Dolby (Sr, M) and begin the back and forth battle that would go on for the next 24 minutes. For every Rocky Mountain score, the Knights would find a way to answer, with goals coming from John Alder (Sr, A), Nate Johnson (Sr, M), and another from Dolby.

Thanks to some disciplined transition, the Knights were able to keep the Grizzlies on their toes, forcing a number of turnovers and failed clears, giving the Knights every opportunity to take the lead. Grant Koehl (Sr, LSM) led the way for the Knights between the lines with some incessant riding and wonderful stick checks.

Where the Knights found success in the first half, the second half would not be so kind. Strong goalie play from the Grizzlies and five unanswered goals would give Rocky Mountain the cushion they needed to secure the victory. Despite a late fourth quarter rally from the Knights, they would only be able to add one more tally on a feed from Alder to Cooper Feeney (Jr, M), closing the gap to four goals with under a minute to play.

Bishop Kelly will begin preparations to host American Fork (UT) on Saturday, April 11th at Bishop Kelly High School at 1 PM.
