Warrior varsity soccer teams fall to Fortuna

The Del Norte High boys and girls varsity soccer teams fell to Fortuna on the road on Wednesday in Big 4 Conference action.

The boys fell 5-3 while the girls lost 10-0.

In the boys game co-coach Jorge Gonzalez said the team trailed 3-2 near the end of the first half, but let a goal slip by with about 30 seconds left in the half.

Gonzalez said the squad played better in the second half and had countless scoring chances but could get in only one goal.

“We just couldn’t get them in the back of the net,” he said.

Jonathan Olvera scored twice for the Warriors while Ian  Jager also had a goal.

On Tuesday, Del Norte downed Hidden Valley of Oregon on the road 1-0. The team is currently 3-2 for the year.

On the girls side the Warriors quickly fell behind and found themselves down 8-0 at the half.

Head coach Clar Byers said the  Huskies were a quick team that was able to move down the field and score at will on the Warriors.

On a positive note, Byers said almost the entire team was able to see the field and gain experience. Del Norte fell to 0-5 for the year.

Three Del Norte County men got on their bicycles recently and rode the length of the Oregon Coast during a 360-mile trek from Astoria to Smith River.

Longtime friends Russ Mont­gomery, 63, Pat Finley, 62, and Tom Martinelli, 56, were looking for an opportunity to physically challenge themselves and have an experience they will not forget anytime soon.

They even made a new friend in a fellow bike rider, a pilot for Alaska Airlines who joined them all the way to Smith River.

The 5 1/2-day trip occurred Sept. 9-14.

“It was probably the most physical exertion I’ve put into a six-day period in my entire life,” Finley said.

Montgomery is a retired dentist who worked for 30 years in Brookings. Finley is a retired Del Norte High principal and Martinelli is a doctor and the  Del Norte County public health officer.

The friends trained for about three months to get themselves into shape.

This was the first time Finley and Martinelli had tried such a long bike ride. Montgomery and his two sons rode from Brookings to Sonoma and back in 1992.

“He was with an older crowd this time,” Finley said with a laugh.

Local barrel racer Haddad places 5th

Natasha Haddad, 13, of Crescent City, who is competing in barrel racing on the California Cowboys Profe­ssional Rodeo Associ­ation circuit, had a 5th place finish out of 20 contestants in Bonnyville in Mendocino County on Sunday.

Haddad and her horse Lexie finished with a time of 18.6 seconds. The top finisher had a time of 18.2 seconds.

Jeanna Haddad, Natasha's mom, said the event was held on a football field and not in the most ideal conditions. Because of this, Natasha went a little bit slower and was more cautious to reduce the chance of injury to her horse, her mom said.

Natasha finished nearly two seconds ahead of the leader for rookie of the year honors in the CCPRA, who she trailed by $315. But since Natasha did not place in the top four in this race she did not receive a cash prize in the last regular season race of the year and came up  short in her rookie of the year quest.

Next for Natasha is the state barrel racing finals, which she has already qualified for. They are set to take place on Oct. 2 and 3 in Redding.


QB Pierce returns to lead Lions to victory

Former Del Norte High football standout Buck Pierce made his return as the starting quarterback for the British Columbia Lions on the Canadian Football League on Saturday.

He had missed more than a month with a concussion, his fifth in an 11 month period.

Pierce went 20-of-28 for 171 yards and no interceptions in the Lions’ 23-17 home win over Toronto.

“Everybody was thinking I was going to get hit out there and crumble,” said Pierce in a story on the Lions’ website. “That’s not me ... I played smart. It was good to go out there and prove it to yourself, just to play and have fun.”

Pierce replaced QB Jarious Jackson, who is out with a shoulder injury,

The game marked a milestone, as Lions head coach Wally Buono became the winningest coach in CFL history.

“That's a milestone he will have for the rest of his life,” said Pierce in the article. “To be part of that is something big.”
