Wildwood Crossing Scoreboard & Schedule 1/27 – 1/31

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.

To report scores or schedule changes, text or call 530-340-0811. Email: siskiyouyouth@sisqtel.net

Lady Lions defeat Trinity with strong second half

Etna v Trinity Var Girls Front copy

The Trinity Wolves girls basketball team is still looking for its first Shasta Cascade League win, but that doesn’t mean they are a pushover. As Etna found out in the first quarter, the Wolves can put up quite a battle. Trinity led 11-10 at the end one one, and trailed by just a point at halftime, 23-22. However, Etna took over in the third quarter, and went on to win by 11 points, 56-45.

With about six minutes to go in the first quarter, Kaylee Weinzinger gave the Wolves a 5-4 advantage with a hoop. Sophia Ritachka added a basket, 7-4. Two freebies by Etna’s Renee Finley, were followed by another Ritachka basket, 9-6. Back-to-back buckets from Natalie Aldrich put Etna up 10-9, but Ritachka regained the lead for Trinity, 11-10, with a pair of freebies.

A minute and a half into the second quarter, Sophie Wardrip made it a 2-point Wolves’ lead with a 3-ball, 14-12. Etna responded with a 9-1 run. Kaitlyn Aldrich scored to tie it at 14-14. Kortni Bennett gave Etna the lead 15-14 with a free throw, and shortly thereafter added a hoop, making the score 17-14. Riley James interrupted the string of Lion points with a free throw, 17-15. Finley set up Hannah Little for a bucket, and then Little added another basket to cap the run, with Etna up 21-15. The Lions were up 23-17, when James finished out the half for the Wolves with a flourish. James added two free throws to the Trinity total, and then hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer, to make it 23-22 at the intermission. (more…)

Wolves win big over Lions

Etna v Trinity Var Boys Front copy

RBrownAdComing into Friday night’s game in Etna, the Lions and Trinity Wolves were part of a three-way tie for second in the Shasta Cascade League at 3-1, a half game behind Mt. Shasta (4-1). Not anymore. Trinity sprinted out to a 20-10 lead at the end of the first quarter, had a 44-22 advantage at the half, and went on to to a 78-51 victory.

Wolf Jaron Hurlburt opened the scoring with a freebie, and Danny Fischer followed with a 3-ball for a 4-0 lead. Etna’s Wade Thackeray scored three points the hard way, 4-3. The next 10 points belonged to Trinity. Hurlburt put up a deuce and a trey, followed by a 3-pointer from Greg Aikins, making it 12-3. Dylan Trunkey capped the run with a bucket, 14-3. Etna trailed 18-5, when Henry Hanna hit from beyond the arc, 18-8. Two from Dominic Villagomes reduced the deficit to under 10 points, 18-10. A put-back by Trinity’s Alex Duree made it 20-10 at the end of one quarter.

Etna reduced the margin to under double digits one more time in the game, with a basket from Hanna early in the second quarter, 21-12. From there it was pretty much all Wolves, as they plastered 24 points on the board in the second frame. Sean Babcock scored six points on a 3-ball and an old fashion 3-point play. Fischer accounted for six points, and Hunter Still put up five, including a 3-point play. Villagomes dropped in two 3-pointers for Etna in the quarter, one from somewhere around the football field.
