Bonita lost to Diamond Bar 49-26 in a Hacienda League opener on Friday but also saw senior quarterback Tanner Diebold go down with an ankle injury in the process.
He sustained that injury in the closing seconds of the third quarter and gave way to backup Joey Halabrin. Diebold came back in the game briefly and tried to rally his team but ended up leaving for a second time, this time for good.
Halabrin finished up and Diebold watched the rest of the game from the sideline on crutches.
Fortunately X-rays taken Saturday morning were negative. Bonita coach Adrian Medrano said Diebold will be “day-to-day” as he sees how that injury improves this week.
Bonita (3-2) continues league play on Friday against Rowland (2-3). Rowland is coming off a 26-21 loss to Walnut.
