Bears repeat as SCL champions, Tulelake 2nd again

Tulelake v Mt Shasta Front copy

By Kady Porterfield

 style=The Tulelake Honkers hosted the Mt. Shasta Bears for a rain soaked match on Thursday that, in effect, served as the Shasta Cascade League championship. Both teams were very physical and played with high intensity for what was at stake—complete with yellow and red cards. The first half was a battle, ending in a 2-2 tie. However, the Bears shutout the Honkers in the second half to take the title 4-2.

Ryan Hering put Mt. Shasta up 1-0 less than a minute into the match, with a one-timer off a cross by Jarrod Althaus-Cressman.

At the 13-minute mark, Althaus-Cressman scored another goal for the Bears, making it 2-0.

Tulelake made a change at goalkeeper. Within five minutes of entering the match, new keeper Ernesto Chavolla stopped four attempts by Mt. Shasta.

The Honkers came very close to their first goal of the match off a direct free kick, but it just missed over the crossbar. With 13 minutes remaining in the half, Hector Martinez scored for Tulelake to narrow the margin to one goal, 2-1.

Less than a minute later, Honker Fortino Lujano scored, tying the match 2-2. (more…)

Lady Miners pull off huge comeback to stun Anderson 3-2

Yreka v Anderson Var copy

The match was all but over. After the Yreka Miners dominated the first set 25-17, the Anderson Cubs (4-2, 16-8-1) turned the tables and could do no wrong, as they won sets two and three  (25-19, 25-14) and had a six-point lead at set and match point in the fourth set, 24-18.

Then, it happened. The fear of losing was gone and the Miners “let it rip,” according to Yreka Coach Scott Eastman.

A kill by Katie Bennett made it 24-19, and sent Marina Sanchez behind the service line. Anita Henson stuffed a Cub at the net, 24-20. Felise Hall hammered back-to-back kills to make it a two-point game, 24-22. A hitting error by Anderson inched the Miners closer at 24-23. Hall notched another kill to tie it at 24-24. A Cub miscue brought it back to set point. This time it was for a Miner win. Hall took care of business with her fourth kill in the final six points for a 26-24 win.

“It was the first time I’ve seen Felise play without fear. And when she decided to take that route, it inspired the whole team,” said Eastman.

The set-four win tied the match at two sets a piece, but there was still work to be done. (more…)
