    The Happy Camp Indians traveled to Big Valley to start play in the 8-man (North) division at the Cardinals field in Bieber. The Indians proved to be a formidable opponent early on, but the Cardinals swarming defense and high-flying offense took their toll and won in a rout, 52-8.

    The Big Valley defenders found Happy Camp captains Connor Mitchell and Zack Walter difficult to bring down one on one, but had a lot of success with gang tacking.

    The Cardinals defense had five quarterback sacks (with two or more tacklers), a fumble recovery and an interception in the first half.
    The Cardinals (1-0, 2-0) scored first converting on fourth-and-nine. Michael Bertelsen caught a ball in the flat, slipped a tackle and sprinted 19 yards to pay dirt. Bertelesen ran in the 2-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.

    The Indians (0-1, 2-2) promptly tied the game. Walter caught a swing pass from Mitchell and rumbled 73 yards up the left sideline and went across the goal line while being tackled from behind. Mitchell hit Chuck Harrision for the 2-point conversion making the score 8-8 with 6:24 left in the first quarter. (more…)

    A Yreka Miners squad composed of both junior varsity and frosh players totally dominated the Brookings Harbor Bruins for Homecoming on Friday night 37-6. For much of the night, the Miner defense was camped out in the Bruins backyard. Hayz Lantz got the party started with a sack of the Brookings quarterback on the game’s first play from scrimmage.

    Three and a half minutes into the game, Blake Shepard scored from 15 yards out to put Yreka up 6-0.

    Tyler O’Gorman made it 12-0 on a 24-yard TD run, and then threw to Lantz for a 2-point conversion, making it 14-0 with 1:56 left in the first quarter.

    With less than a minute to go in the quarter, O’Gorman threw a 47-yard TD strike to David Ruiz. Tanner Marks added the PAT for a 21-0 Miner advantage. (more…)

    The Happy Camp volleyball team started net play Friday night with a road contest against the Big Valley Cardinals. Unfortunately for the young Indian spikers, the Lady Cardinals are in mid-season form and swept the match, 25-4, 25-6 and 25-17.

    The Happy Camp squad features two seniors with seven underclassmen, including four freshmen, and struggled with their serve and serve receive. However, they found some confidence in game three and went on an 11-1 run to trim a 13-point deficit to three, 18-15. But the rally stopped their as the host Cardinals closed out the match.

    “We had some first game jitters,” said Happy Camp coach Nikki Hokanson. “The girls can play it’s just going to take a little time.”

    Big Valley dealt 14 aces in the match and finished with 17 kills.

    Happy Camp freshman Maddy Offield had two aces in the Indians 11-1 run in game three. Freshman Matilda Peters sparked the rally with touch hit to find the soft spot in the Cardinals defense for sideout. Senior Abbey Eadie and sophomore Annalee Head each had a kill in the run. (more…)

    Pretty much everything went as scripted for Yreka on Friday night, as the varsity Miners bruised and battered the Brookings Harbor Bruins, 48-6, for a Homecoming win. It was apparent from the opening drive that the Bruins would be unable to match the Miners’ physicality and speed. Yreka drove 51 yards on its first possession. Ty Currie scored from two yards out. When Aaron Freeeze added the PAT, the Miners had a 7-0 lead, and all the points they would need. But, there were many more to come.

    Perhaps aware of Drew Kannely-Robles habit of returning kickoffs for touchdowns, Brookings kicked short to open the game, setting the Miners up with great field position on their own 49. From film, Yreka had already identified a weak secondary, Currie said before the game. The Miners exploited that deficiency on the first play from scrimmage with a 38-yard gain to the Bruin 13 via a pass from Currie to Paul Shadwell Jr. Two runs by Robles made it first and goal at the three-yard-line. Two plays later, Currie score.

    Early in the second quarter, Justin Burch recovered a Brookings fumble at the Bruins 12-yard-line. Robles took it in from there on the first play of the Miners possession. Freeze kicked the extra point, upping the Yreka lead to 14-0 with 10:11 to go in the first half.

    Following a good Bruin punt, Yreka started its next drive deep in its own territory on the 12. Currie passed to Thomas Colla for three yards. Robles went 85-yards to pay dirt on the next play. Freeze split the uprights again, for a 21-0 advantage with 5:01 to play in the half. (more…)

    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 SiskiyouYouth.com a schedule.

    Thursday night was not only a volleyball game, but also a celebration as Butte Valley High School presented the Grand Re-Opening of their newly painted gym. Thank you gifts were presented to everyone involved and then the official ribbon was cut. The people of Butte Valley were very pleased to finally see their gym back in it’s own school colors. The celebration was sealed perfectly when Angelina Surface of the Butte Valley volleyball team stood and sang the national anthem. With a voice that left goosebumps, it was surely one of the best performances heard in that gym for a very long time.

    By game time, the visiting Etna Lions and the Butte Valley Bulldogs were ready to battle it out on the net. The first two sets were back-and-forth until the Lions were able to close out both in the end. Then, Etna blew out the home squad in the final set to take the match 3-0 (25-19, 25-15, 25-7).

    In the first set, the Bulldogs started with the serve, but quickly turned it over to Etna after an error in play. Lillian Tapia would get the point back off a kill from the outside to tie 1-1. Two Bulldog errors and a kill from Lion Hayley Kaae gave Etna a 4-1 lead. Butte Valley became victorious after a long rally that ended in an Etna error, but Kaae showed her presence at the net once again as she got a kill off an overpass. Claire Olson stepped up to serve an ace, but Taylor Gonzalez had her own answers from the serving line as she came up with three aces to give Butte Valley the lead 7-6. Surface hit a deep kill to further the lead 8-6. There was a long fought rally once again, but this time Butte Valley would fall short. Emily Decker would serve an ace for the Bulldogs, then combined points on Lion’s errors would extend their lead 11-8. Lion Mariya Whittaker came in the game and quickly went up for a kill. Surface was able to muster up an ace before Etna’s Brenna Black was able to send over a hit from the back row to set the score at 13-10. An ace from Mariah Baldwin would leave the Bulldogs leading 15-11. Whittaker started a comeback for the Lions with another kill and Etna was able to hold on through several Bulldog errors that tied up the game 15-15. Dani Eiler served three aces in a row to take the lead for good at 19-17 for the Lions. Hannah Reynolds would knock down a kill from the middle to tie the game at 19-19, before Etna ran the rest of the set, closing it out with back-to-back kills from Lexi Morrill and Katie Turner.

    I’ve always enjoyed road trips to the McArthur-Fall River Mills area to cover sports because the fans there are among the best in the North Section–friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and generally show good sportsmanship. That feeling was reenforced yesterday, when McArthur resident Jennifer Whitaker Leighton sent photos from a junior high game between Weed and Fall River back in 2012 to be used as part of the Weed Replacement photos that SiskiyouYouth.com is offering to victims of the Boles Fire.

    Very cool. Thank you Jennifer! (more…)
