Warriors ready for tough NCS road test

After an emphatic 56-0 home victory over Lower Lake in the first round of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs, the Del Norte football team will head out on the road, likely for the remainder of its postseason run.

The fifth-seeded Warriors (9-2) will travel roughly 5½ hours south to Novato to take on No. 4 San Marin (8-3) in the quarterfinals on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

Warrior MMA loses fights, but picks up pride at Char-ae Heights 

Warrior MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) lost its fights at the “Quest for Title” in Trinidad at the Cher-ae Heights Casino on Saturday, but both local fighters were able to hold their heads high after some hard-fought matches.

Matt Chadwick with Warrior MMA fought Ronny Tsutsui Jr. in a International Sport Combat Federation 155-pound California State Title Fight in the semi-main event. Chadwick ended up losing by unanimous decision, but left feeling like he could have won.

The heavy rain that pounded fans, coaches and players alike at Whalen Field for most of the first half on Friday night eventually let up, but the Del Norte defense never relented as the Warriors shut out Lower Lake 56-0 in a first-round rout in the North Coast Section Division IV football playoffs.

“It is so important to get that first playoff win,” said Del Norte head coach Ray Rook. “It kind of had the same feel as last year when we went to Justin-Siena. You just don’t know how the kids are going to react to the playoff game and the atmosphere, but everything was business as usual. On the first play of the game I could see the kids came to play.”

After a bit of a dry spell, rain has returned to the region to recharge coastal rivers with fresh salmon, and this weekend is likely to be one of the busiest for salmon fishing on the Smith yet this season.

The Smith River was certainly on the high end for drift boats on Friday, but that didn’t stop many anglers from getting a chance at fresh salmon.

Local fighter gets shot at state title

Del Norte falls 3-0 to Miramonte’s size, experience in first round of North Coast Section playoffs

The size disparity was nothing new. Del Norte volleyball has been smaller than nearly every opponent it has played this year, yet still managed to win 23 games. But Miramonte combined its size with experience, not just in high school but at the club level, that the Warriors just couldn’t match.

No. 11-seeded Del Norte fell 3-0 (25-14, 25-15, 25-18) to the sixth-seeded Matadors in Thunen Gym on Thursday in the first round of the North Coast Section Division III playoffs.

Warrior football preps for playoff

The last time the Del Norte football team played a postseason game at home, this year’s senior class was in fifth grade. That streak ends on Friday when the Warriors host Lower Lake at Whalen Field at 7 p.m in the first round of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs.

“Playing at home in the playoffs is a big deal because we worked so hard, both the kids and the coaches, to accomplish that,” said head coach Ray Rook. “All the hard work that the players and the coaches do in the offseason is paying off.”

JV football wraps up unblemished season

A turnover early in the Del Norte junior varsity football team’s season finale helped Arcata jump out to a 7-6 lead, but true to form, the Warriors never panicked.

“The kids just went out and did what they do; they never got rattled all year,” said Del Norte JV coach Danny Forkner. “That is the great part of this team.”

Del Norte showed that same determination on Friday as it scored the game’s final 40 points to run away with a 46-7 victory to complete the team’s perfect season at 10-0.
