Tigers win slugfest with Warriors in Arcata

Arcata stays unbeaten in the HDN with 3-1 victory over Del Norte on Thursday

Thursday’s meeting between the two teams that have shared the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league championship each of the last two years lived up to the billing.

Arcata edged out Del Norte 3-1 (25-18, 24-26, 25-12, 25-19) to improve to 3-0, grabbing an early advantage in the race to repeat as league champions over the Warriors, who fall to 2-1 in the HDN.

“The rallies were long. It was dig after dig and hit after hit. It was really good volleyball,” said Del Norte head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “The rallies were going back and forth about eight times, and they weren’t free balls either, they were hits. I was proud of the girls, and I think they realized that we can hang with them, and we are going to go home and work harder to try to get them next time.”

The Del Norte girls tennis team continued its winning ways on Tuesday with an 8-1 victory over Eureka for its seventh straight team win.

The Arcata boys soccer team dictated the tempo and the run of play for most of its game in Del Norte on Wednesday and came away with a 3-0 victory over the Warriors.

“We played one of the top teams in the league today,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “What let us down today is our passes were not accurate, our ball control wasn’t very good and we are just working too hard. We are just running about the field. That is something that I harp on a lot.”

Although the Saturday Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 matchup strays from the regular schedule, Nova is excited for the opportunity.

“You change a few things when you play on Saturday,” he said. “What I like about it is there are times in the playoffs where we might have to play on Saturday, so it gives us an opportunity to get ready for that. We have already played in Eugene on a Saturday, so we are used to it.”

“They were far better than us,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “The boys competed as much as they could, but the gulf in class was too wide.”
