WEED – The College of the Siskiyous Lady Eagles hoops team outplayed the Yuba 49ers in the first half of Wednesday’s contest. In the second half, COS blew Yuba off the court, holding the 49ers scoreless for over 10 minutes.

ALTURAS – The Etna Lions football team’s dream of a section title ended on a cold Friday night against the Modoc Braves, 34-12. But, the Lions didn’t go quietly. Only
The Braves had the ball first and it appeared that they might make quick work of the Lions. On the third play from scrimmage, the Braves struck with a 54-yard TD pass. Less than a minute into the contest, Modoc led 7-0.
The Lions, however, took the punch and threw a haymaker of their own. On a third-and-4 from its own 36-yard-line, Etna ran a reverse—or, so the Braves thought. Instead, wide-out Taylor Pehle-Munson pulled up and hit a wide open Seth Jordan for a 54-yard TD. The PAT was wide, leaving Modoc up 7-6.
Modoc responded with a 62-yard drive to regain the lead 14-6 on a 52-yard TD pass, with left in the first quarter.
A strong return on the ensuing kickoff by T. Munson gave Etna good field position on its own 44. Using a combination of runs and a pass, the Lions moved to the Modoc 37-yard-line. A 13 yard burst by Alex Case moved the ball to the 24. Runs by Lucas Case and Jordan Pehle Munson advanced the ball to the Modoc 16, where the Lions faced a third-and-2. The third down play lost two yards, and a fourth down passing attempt fell incomplete. Modoc took over on downs at its 18. (more…)Share on Facebook
