MOUNT SHASTA – The junior varsity version of the Black Butte Bowl—Black Butte Lite—between the Mt. Shasta Bears and Weed Cougars was competitive for the first half. After that, it was just about all Bears until the last minute of play.
Cesar Gonzalez set the Bears up for their first score with an interception, giving Mt. Shasta the ball on the Weed 11-yard line. Daniel Benham covered the 11 yards in one run, and Jonathan Clemens ran for the 2-point conversion, giving the Bears the lead 8-0, with 4:50 remaining in the first quarter. Neither team was able to find the end zone for the remainder of the first half.
With four minutes gone in the third quarter, Gonzalez scored a TD of his own, going 46 yards to pay dirt. Weed’s Spencer Hall blocked the PAT, but the Bears had increased their lead to 14-0.
The speedy and hard hitting Elijah Chapman made it 20-0 with a 45-yard punt return for a TD, with 2:29 left in the third. The 2-point conversion failed. (more…)Share on Facebook
