Lumberjacks bring womens soccer team to Crescent City to put on free youth clinic 

What started as a chance meeting on an airplane three months ago culminated in about 200 local youth soccer players at a free clinic put on by the Humboldt State University womens soccer players and coaches.

Children ages 4-16 years old showed up at the Del Norte High School soccer fields on Saturday to watch the Lumberjacks train, and later to receive training in a free clinic.

Sirens close gap, fall 180-159 to Brawlers

Victory slipped out of the Tsunami Sirens’ grasp in the closing minutes of their final home roller derby bout of the season on Saturday at the Fairgrounds, but the 180-159 loss to the Boneyard Brawlers was a big improvement over the 129-point loss to the Cherry City Derby Girls in Salem, Ore., early in the season. 

“The last time we played this team we lost by over 100 — this was way better,” said Jenn “JennZilla” Longrie. “Losing was still a bummer, though, because we were ahead for about 80 percent of the match.”

Del Norte football, volleyball in first game action Saturday

The 2014 fall sports season is rapidly approaching for Del Norte High School. 

The Warriors kick off regular season action on Saturday as the football team hosts Piner, from Santa Rosa, at Mike Whalen on Saturday at 3 p.m.



Hoffman parts ways with Washington

Former Del Norte star receiver Cody Hoffman was one of nine players released from the Washington Redskins on Saturday as the team cut down from 90 players to 75 by Tuesday’s NFL deadline.

Although he was cut, Hoffman could still find employment in the NFL this season. Hoffman is eligible to re-sign with Washington, or sign with any other team on the practice squad for the upcoming year.

King of Clubs: Fore: Golf’s not-so-dirty 4-letter word

Anybody who has played golf for some extended period of time is all too familiar with this word. It is probably the only suitable four-letter word that has a place on the golf course, but, I am sure others would disagree with me. 

The word is “FORE!!!”

tier tournament, dubbed “Bangin’ at the Beach,” to sling some discs and see how they stacked up against the competition.

Reel Deal: Rockfish biting hard; Klamath looks forward to more water

The Klamath River has been in the news more for complicated and controversial water allocation politics rather than fishing reports recently, but the sport harvest of fall chinook has begun and anglers are quickly working towards this year’s comparatively small quota.

Black rockfish have been on a fierce bite lately out of Crescent City, while the lingcod are on a bit of a lull.  Ocean salmon fishing — out of Crescent City at least — continues to be really slow with only a few caught sporadically.

Warrior Memories: Wier was a player coaches loved

This is the final column about the 2014 Del Norte Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.

All too often as we watch or talk about football we have a tendency to focus on what coaches refer to as the skill positions — the players who run with the ball or make great catches or the ones who throw the ball. 

While these players are fun to watch and talk about, without the tough, talented athletes on the line of scrimmage, these skilled athletes would have a tough time displaying their skills.
