    What to expect the rest of the season and into the post season

    Friday’s game between Dunsmuir and Redding Christian was likely a preview of the North Section championship game. Yes, there are some other teams that might want to have a say in it, but here are some realities:

    The only team to be ahead of Dunsmuir at halftime is Redding Christian, 7-0. The only team to beat Redding Christian is Dunsmuir.

    Other than in Friday’s 28-20 game with Redding Christian, the closest any team has come to beating Dunsmuir was Big Valley at 48-24, although Butte Valley put up a good fight for the first 24 minutes (trailed 8-7 at the end of one, and 14-7 at the half, before losing 42-7).

    Hayfork gave Redding Christian a battle before losing 49-44. Sixteen of Hayfork’s points came in the fourth quarter. The next closest was Butte Valley at 55-20.

    The three top teams in the South Division are Princeton (4-0, 5-3), Loyalton (3-0, 3-5) and Greenville (3-1, 5-3).

    Dunsmuir (4-0, 8-0) beat Princeton 48-12 and Greenville 45-6. (more…)

    The Dunsmuir Tigers volleyball team took over sole possession of second place in the Evergreen League with a 3-1 win over the Butte Valley Bulldogs on Tuesday night in Dunsmuir, or maybe they already had it. It’s hard to tell looking at the standings on MaxPreps because some of the teams don’t bother to report scores in a timely manner.

    Dunsmuir won the first game of the match, 25-11. Butte Valley rebounded with a 25-21 win in game-two, and then pushed the Tigers to extra points in game-three. Dunsmuir, however, prevailed with a 31-29 win. The Tigers closed out the match with a 25-16 game-four victory. (more…)

    The Dunsmuir Tigers didn’t really know what to expect from the Whittell Warriors of Zephyr Cove, Nev. The Warriors were only 1-3 coming into the game, but the strength of their opponents was an unknown, as well. Whatever Whittell had, it didn’t take the Tigers long to figure it out, on Saturday at Dunsmuir City Park.

    Dunsmuir led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, and 44-6 at the half. The Tigers tacked on 20 more points in the second half, for a 64-6 win.

    Next week’s game figures to be much more of a challenge for Dunsmuir, as they host the also undefeated Redding Christian Lions. The teams met twice last year in Redding. The Lions won the regular season game, 24-16, but the Tigers won the section championship tilt, 34-15.

    The Butte Valley Bulldogs arrived at Dunsmuir City Park looking for an upset win over the the defending section champion Dunsmuir Tigers. After the first Bulldog possession, it looked like Butte Valley might just spoil the Tiger Homecoming. However, after falling behind 7-0, the Tigers posted the next 42 points for a 42-7 win.

    Dawg Bobby Vaughan took the opening kickoff back to the Dunsmuir 48-yard-line. Two runs by Trevor Robertson resulted in two first downs and the ball at the Tiger 26. Vaughan ran to the 19, and then tossed a touchdown strike to Robertson on the next play. Bodie Vaughan added the extra point, giving the Dawgs a 7-0 lead, with 10:05 left in the opening frame.

    Dunsmuir drove to just inside the Butte Valley 5-yard-line on its first possession, but turned the ball over on downs.

    The Tigers set up shop on their own 46 following a Bulldog punt. A Chase Sordahl run and a pair of Dayton Pepperdine runs moved the ball to the Butte Valley 23. Tiger quarterback Brian Taylor connected with Sordahl for a first down just inside the Dawg 10-yard-line. Two plays later, Pepperdine dove into the end zone. A fake PAT play, with CJ Palmer on the receiving end of a 2-point conversion pass, put the Tigers in the lead 8-7. (more…)
