Black Bear Diner Scoreboard & Schedule 2/9 – 2/13


It’s a good idea to check with the individual schools to make sure games are still a go…just saying. Don’t blame us if you get there and no one else is there. Also, there may be some games not on the schedule because coaches haven’t posted on MaxPreps or haven’t sent a schedule.

Led by Jarrett Gaither and Tycen Birch’s 18 points a piece, the Yreka Miners frosh whacked the West Valley Eagles, 69-36, on Friday night.

Eagles stage big comeback, but fall just short to Corsairs

COS v Redwoods Front copy

The College of the Siskiyous Eagles men’s team found itself down by 17 points at the intermission, 41-24, on Thursday night. But, the Eagles fought back in the second half and took a brief lead, before succumbing, 69-66, to the invading College of the Redwoods Corsairs.

COS chipped away at the deficit for the early portion of the second stanza, and narrowed it to 10 points on a pair of freebies by Daylon Blakely, 47-37. With just over 12 minutes to play, Cesar Gonzalez hit one of his five second half 3-pointers, making it a single-digit ball game at 47-40. A 3-ball from Kenyatta Dunmore, put the Eagles within a possession of the Corsairs, 50-47.

Redwoods pushed its lead back out to seven points, 56-49. That’s when Blakely started an 8-0 run for COS, with a free throw, 56-50. A deuce and then two freebies from Keenen Wade made it a two-point contest, 56-54. The Eagles turned a blocked shot by Skyler Schneider on the defensive end into a 3-pointer by Gonzalez at the other end, for a 57-56 advantage at the 5:55 mark. (more…)

Doc Swenson’s Quick Clips: final two minutes of Tulelake @ Butte Valley girls B-ball game

Various clips from the final two minutes of the Butte Valley Bulldogs girls 45-40 win over Tulelake on Tuesday, February 9, 2016.

Also, I want to give a shout out to Ryder Seaton. At the end of the game, I moved up on the stage for a better video angle. I was trying to get into a decent and semi-comfortable position, when I heard Ryder ask me if I wanted to sit in the chair he was using.

My brain said, “Naw, let the kid keep his chair.” My knees said, “Are you crazy? Take the offer!” My knees over ruled my brain and I took the chair. So, if you enjoy the video, give Ryder a high-five next time you see him because he helped make it possible.
