King of Clubs: Ryder Cup brings out the best in competitors

“I trust that the effect of this match will be to influence a cordial, friendly and peaceful feeling throughout the whole civilized world... I look upon the Royal and Ancient game as being a powerful force that influences the best things in humanity.”

- Samuel Ryder, founder of the Ryder Cup, 1927

Thursday in the world of golf, one of the biggest, if not the biggest, team sporting events in the world today started: the biennial Ryder Cup between Europe and USA. Every two years, Europe and the USA compete for three days in an arrangement of spirited team and single match competitions.

After scoring 132 points in its first three games, the Del Norte football team struggled to move the ball against St. Bernard’s in a 19-8 loss to the Crusaders.

The Warriors struck quickly in the game when senior quarterback Steven Maready found running back Chad Bell on a fly route on the team’s first offensive play of the game for a 40-yard touchdown. Junior Austin Healy, normally a wide out, lined up as the quarterback for the two-point conversion and took the ball in himself for the 8-0 lead just 41 seconds into the game.The Warriors will travel to Fortuna next Friday. Both teams enter the game with a 1-0 league record and the winner will grab an early lead in the championship hunt.

Warrior Memories: Mattz was there for DN sports

Each week as I prepare to attend a Warrior athletic contest, no matter what the sport, I can’t help but look back at what I consider the greatest Warrior fan I have known.

While a student at Del Norte, Ray Mattz was an outstanding performer on the football, basketball and baseball venues until he graduated in 1938. I first got to know Ray while I was a student at Crescent Elk and attended Warrior contests at the high school.

Reel Deal: Klamath angling paused during emergency flows

Although the opportunity to take home adult chinook salmon caught in the Lower Klamath River has passed, the salmon fishing is still great, and chinook under 22 inches can still be retained.  But anglers will most likely have to wait for the river to drop back down from emergency Trinity River flows that were started Tuesday.

Fishing for salmon holding in the Chetco River estuary has been pretty slow, but the Lower Rogue River bite has been pretty good, besides a few quiet days during the recent rain.

The Del Norte boys soccer team finally got out on the field on Wednesday for its first competition of the season. The Warriors opened right up with Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play and are off to a 1-0 start to the season after topping McKinleyville 5-2.

“I don’t think I could ask for more,” said head coach David Sanyaolu. “The players put in their best and I am happy that we played a passing game. That is the philosophy that I am trying to instill in them. It is a team game. You pass the ball and move; that is all.”

The Del Norte girls soccer team hosted a tough McKinleyville team for its Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league opener, falling 4-0. The young Warriors are pleased with the progress they have made, however, after a 1-2 start to the season.

“I am happy about how we played,” said head coach Clar Byers. “McKinleyville is a good team and we only had 12 players on our roster today. The girls settled down and passed around.”
