Mt. Shasta girls stay SCL perfect with comeback win over Etna

Etna v Mt Shasta Front copy

Sometimes things just don’t go quite right, but ya manage to win anyway. That was pretty much the case in Etna on Friday night for the Mt. Shasta Lady Bears. Someone put a lid on the basket for the Shasta Cascade League leading Bears in the first quarter. Meanwhile, Etna was moving the ball well and scoring. The Lions led 13-7 after one period and 16-15 at the half.

Eventually, Mt. Shasta began to get control of the contest with a 10-0 run to close out the third quarter, and went to the fourth with a 34-29 lead. From there, the Bears built their advantage to doubel-digits, winning 47-36.

Gracie Duerr and Kortni Bennett opened up the scoring for Etna with a pair of baskets. A 3-point play the hard way from Emily Andrus made it 4-3. A deuce by Bre Buker and a trey from Bo Murray, upped the Lion lead to 9-3. After Sam Benedict scored for Mt. Shasta, Buker went coast-to-coast for a hoop, and Kaitlyn Aldrich added a bucket for a 13-5 Etna lead. Mary Taylor hit a buzzer-beater for the Bears to make it 13-7 at the end of one quarter.

The varsity Yreka Lady Miners found themselves in a bit of a hole early against Anderson on Friday night, and couldn’t quite climb their way out. On the other hand, the only holes the junior varsity and frosh dug, were the ones for the Cubs.

The Miner frosh started the night out right, with a 46-23 win. Yreka led 11-7 after one quarter, and 17-12 at the half. A 16-6 third quarter, gave the Miners control of the contest, 33-18, heading into the fourth quarter. Yreka held Anderson to just five points in the final period, while scoring 13.

Aubrey Price led Yreka with 14 points. Autumn Giannini put up 11, and Mariana Trujillo had six points. The Miners were 7/18 from the charity stripe.

The Miner JV squad pretty much dominated right from the start, leading 13-2 at the end of one quarter, and 20-8 at halftime. Yreka extended its lead to 15 points, 30-15, by the end of three quarters. The Miners put up 14 points in the final frame, for a 44-20 win. (more…)

Bears overwhelm Lions, 73-35

Etna v Mt Shasta Front copy

The first time the Bears and Lions tangled this season, it took a last second shot for Mt. Shasta to grab the victory. Round-two was decided early, as the Bears overwhelmed the Lions in Etna on Friday night, 73-35.

Mt. Shasta jumped out to an 11-0 lead in the first quarter. A steal and score by Preston Blakely put the first points on the board. Blakely then added a pair of freebies. Hunter Moyer followed with a hoop, 6-0. Kaden Riccomini was fouled on a 3-point attempt, and converted the trio of free throws, 9-0. Mason Brooks turned a steal into two points, capping the run, 11-0. A deuce from Lion Robert Thom broke the shutout with 4:01 on the clock, 11-2. The Bears led 14-6 at the end of the opening period.

Yreka soccer sweeps Falcons

Yreka v Central Valley Front copy

The Yreka Miners girls defeated the visiting Central Valley Falcons 4-1 on Thursday. The boys downed CV 1-0 in dramatic fashion.

In the girls’ match, Jocelyn Capen put the Miners in front with a shot to the right side of the net at the 14-minute mark.

Eleven minutes later, Lacey Jackson made it 2-0 for Yreka, also putting her kick into the right corner of the goal. For just a second it appeared the Falcon keeper might make an effort to stop the shot, but apparently just figured, “Eh, why bother?” (more…)
