Del Norte girls win defensive struggle against Mack 36-30

The Del Norte girls basketball team avenged its most lopsided loss of the year with a 36-30 road victory over the same McKinleyville team that beat the Warriors 46-27 in Crescent City less than a month ago.

The difference in the second game was Del Norte’s defense in the paint against the much bigger Panthers.

The first time the Del Norte basketball team faced McKinleyville this season it poured in a season-high 75 points. When the Panthers came to Thunen Gym on Thursday, however, the Warriors just couldn’t find the bucket and McKinleyville was able to escape Crescent City with a 42-39 victory.

“We didn’t play well,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “We beat them up down there and thought they were going to come out and win and we can’t do that.”

The Del Norte girls basketball team got off to a slow start against Arcata and by the time the offense started clicking, the Tigers already had a commanding lead on their way to a 45-33 victory.

The Warriors managed just six points in each of the first two quarters as Arcata raced out to a 28-12 halftime lead. By the end of the third quarter the Tigers pushed their advantage to 18 points at 38-20.

The Del Norte boys junior varsity basketball team is starting to pick up steam as the season winds down, and it has everything to do with the team’s defense and effort.

“We are not very big, as everyone can see, but we play with a lot of heart,” said JV head coach Kevin Baxter. “That is all I can ask for. We have had our ups and downs this season, but as the season has gone along we are getting a lot better. They are maturing a lot. They are starting to figure out that hard work is hard, and if you are lazy then you don’t play for Del Norte.”

Nothing separated the Del Norte and Fortuna wrestling teams when the dual ended in a 42-42 tie after 14 matches. In fact, both teams were still neck and neck after reading the first seven tiebreakers in the rule book.

The Warriors victory over Fortuna on Wednesday in Thunen Gym came down to tiebreaker H — the first wrestler to score points in each match. Based on that, Del Norte won eight to four.

The Del Norte boys basketball team had another chance to hand league leading Arcata its first Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 loss of the season on Tuesday in Thunen Gym, but once again the Tigers were able to do just enough to escape Crescent City with a 52-47 victory.

The Warriors took a 27-26 advantage into halftime after a buzzer-beating three pointer from Dayton Skeen, but the third quarter was all Arcata. The Tigers outscored Del Norte 20-11 in the third to grab an eight point lead heading into the final period.

Reel Deal: Boats getting back on Smith and Chetco this week

The promises of big rains this week were largely unfulfilled, and local anglers were able to take advantage of the week-long mostly dry spell to get back out on driftboats as the Smith River has rounded into shape this week. The Chetco River also had a brief window for driftboats on Wednesday before the river blew back out on Thursday morning. Although the boats have been able to get back out on the water, anglers are still reportedly having luck hauling in steelhead from shore.

Warrior Memories: Passing of a Warrior fanatic, lifelong friend

It is with a heavy heart, but a lot of love and respect that I feel as I write this column. 

With the passing of Jordan Kekry, the community has lost a great citizen, the Warrior family lost one of their longest supporters, and I lost a very special high school teammate and lifelong friend.
