Bulldogs run past Lions, 4-1

Butte Valley V Etna front

svpt-small.jpgDORRIS – The Butte Valley Bulldog soccer team used speed and finesse to shred the Etna Lion defense for three first half goals on the way to a decisive 4-1 win on Tuesday. Jose Avalos and Jose Gonzalez each tallied two goals, with Gonzalez also picking up an assist. Etna’s lone goal came on a penalty kick by Erik Anaya.

Four minutes later, Avalos scored unassisted, making it 2-0. Gonzalez scored his first goal at the 30-minute mark, giving Butte Valley a 3-0 lead going into halftime. (more…)

Screamin’ Eagles ground “other” Eagles, 24-14


norcal.jpgWEED – College of the Siskiyous President Randall Lawrence told the COS Eagle football team that it will be “Homecoming every game from now on,” following the Screamin’ Eagles 24-14 win over the Laney College Eagles.

Early in the contest, it didn’t appear that the COS homecoming bash was going to be all that happy, as Laney drove deep into Screamin’ Eagle (Eagles from here on) territory on its first possession. With the ball on the Eagle 10-yard-line, Laney completed a pass, but the receiver fumbled. Eagle Devin Howard picked up the loose ball and rumbled 25 yards to the COS 31 to give the Eagles a temporary reprieve. (more…)

Cougars snack on Bulldogs


scm-ad.jpgWEED – The Weed varsity football team left no doubt, that Bulldogs are no match for Cougars–at least not when it comes to Weed Cougars and Los Molinos Bulldogs. The Cougars racked up 335 rushing yards and 469 total yards of offense on the way to a 41-0 rout of the Bulldogs on Friday night.

Weed picked up all the points it would really need on its second drive of the game. Micah White picked off a Bulldog pass, giving the Cougars possession on the Los Molinos 46-yard-line. Back-to-back runs by Robert Aquila moved the ball 18 yards to the Bulldog 28. Travis Andrews went three yards to the 25. A reverse by White went for 21 yards and put the ball on the Bulldog 4-yard-line. Andrews took it the rest of the way, to put the Cougars up 6-0, with 3:53 left in the first quarter. The PAT was blocked. (more…)

Lady Lions move to 3-0 in SCL


coffee-break-b.jpgETNA – The Etna Lady Lions captured an unexpectedly easy win over the Mt. Shasta Lady Bears, 3-0, on Thursday.
Etna set the tone early in game-one, ripping off seven straight points to start the match. Five points came via Annaleisa Nadig aces. Mt. Shasta was never really in the game, and Etna went on to win 25-13.

Game-two was by far the most competitive. Etna led nearly the entire first half of the game and were up 16-11, when the Lady Bears staged a comeback. A kill by Amanda Amesbury gained the serve for Mt. Shasta and made the score 16-12. Back-to-back kills by Kendra Woodglass made it 16-14. The teams exchanged service errors, leading to a 17-15 score. Amesbury and Woodglass teamed up for a block to bring the Bears within one point, 17-16. A Jeana Michels kill tied the game at 17-17. (more…)
