ETNA – It was bound to show up; it was just a matter of time. After being absent the first two games of the season, the Etna Lion passing game showed up Friday night and despite the 21-45 loss to the Lost River Raiders it is evident that there is lots of potential.
Is this a new rendition of Air Etna?
Senior quarterback Clint Eastlick passed for 391 yards and three scores as Etna fell in what was a back and forth battle in the early stages at Duncan Field.
Eastlick was spreading the wealth, as his “Stimulus” hit five different receivers including Ryan Hicks. Eastlick and Hicks connected eight times for 289 yards and two touchdowns. The often elusive Hicks took advantage of single coverage most of the night and scored on receptions of 81 and 85 yards.
Etna answered right away when Eastlick hit Hicks for an 85-yard score. The two hooked up again for the two-point conversion to make it 8-6 Lions.
The Raider running game was pure power up the gut and they soon regained the lead before Eastlick connected with Jarom Hiett from 25 yards out to give Etna its last lead of the game, 15-14. (more…)Share on Facebook

The Charger Mighty Mites showed just how mighty they really are this weekend against the Foothill Jr. Cougars. At the beginning of the first quarter, the Jr. Cougars had the ball and for a moment it looked as if they were off to a good start. But the Yreka Chargers defense stepped it up and held the Cougars at the goal line, never letting them break through. Jake Peterson, Skylar Conrad, Travis Arwood, Travis Hedin, Titus Christy, Davon Ruiz, Wesley Ward, Randall Hughes and Devon Applewhite all made great defensive plays throughout the Mighty Mite game.

The Laws of the Game declare that a direct free kick is given to the opposing team if a player “handles the ball deliberately (except for the goalkeeper within his own penalty area).” This simple statement defines one of the ten listed offenses in the first part of Law 12 (Fouls and Misconduct) and lies at the historical and traditional heart of soccer, a game played with all parts of the body other than the hands. Only the goalkeeper is exempt from this restriction and only while within his own penalty area.
What are the characteristics of a clear handling offense?
* A player deliberately carries, strikes, or propels the ball with the hand or arm
* It is the player’s action that initiates the contact with the ball (more…)Share on Facebook
