Bishop’s tops LJCD; advances to semifinals


By Phil Dailey

The game had a different meaning but it had the same outcome as The Bishop’s School played La Jolla Country Day in Division V CIF quarterfinals.

Much like their matchup less than a month earlier, the Knights took out the Torreys again, this time by a score of 24-14.

The Knights won 35-16 back on Oct. 29.

With the win, Bishop’s (6-5 overall) advances to the CIF Division V semifinals against Santa Fe Christian (9-1) on Friday night. The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Solana Beach.

For the Torreys, the loss marked the last game of the season and the team finished with a 7-5 record.
