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.”

After giving up 13 quick points the Del Norte High Warrior defense woke up and was quite impressive against a formidable Ferndale Wildcats football team Friday night, giving hope for a short period of time that they may be able to come back and make this a ball game.

This included causing three fumbles and an interception in the first half of play for the Warriors.

Unfortunately for Del Norte things went downhill in a hurry from there. The Wildcats, of the Little 5 Conference, showed that despite being a small school they   are an impressive ball team on any level, downing Del Norte of the Big 4 Conference 47-6 in Crescent City.

A key reason for the Wildcats’ dominance was a brilliant performance by senior running back Jacob Coppini, who ran the ball 27 times for 249 yards.

Many times people go their entire lives never having the chance to do for a living what they love deep down in their heart and soul.

At only 13 years old, Crescent City resident Natasha Haddad is well on her way to living her dreams and being successful in something she loves with a passion — barrel racing.

Natasha can already do this sport so well that she is competing professionally against adults on the California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association rodeo circuit.

Natasha has done such a good job she has already won a few races and is in contention to win rookie of the year honors.

She has won numerous cash prizes in the races, totaling up to more than $3,000 and has earned enough money to pay her way to compete throughout the state.

She’s supported by her parents, Jeanna and Guy Haddad, who drive her and her horse Lexie to events.

Not bad for someone that is still in eighth grade at Redwood School.

Currently, Natasha is $315 behind the top rookie on the circuit, and she says she hopes to overtake her and win rookie of the year honors.

“That’s my goal,” Natasha said. “That would be very exciting. It would be an honor.”

Natasha is in eighth place overall in the CCPRA barrel racing standings out of 35 listed participants.

Tiny, but deadly Ferndale

DN Warriors face  small-school power Ferndale today, Friday Sept 18

The Del Norte High varsity football team faces an early season challenge tonight as they take on Little 5 power Ferndale at home for the first time since 2000.

The last time the teams met the Wildcats triumphed over the Warriors. While Ferndale is quite a small school, normally having under 200 students compared to the nearly 1,000 at Del Norte, that has not prevented the Wildcats from becoming a football dynasty. They are considered one of the top teams in the entire North Coast Section and have won their fair share of NCS titles in the small school division, including in 2007.

Facing a larger school has never fazed Ferndale, who easily took down Fortuna of the Big 4 35-6 last season and has beaten teams like Arcata and Fortuna several times the past few years.

In contrast, Del Norte was 1-1 against the Huskies in 2008.

“Their record speaks for itself,”  Warrior head coach Bob Hadfield said about Ferndale.

Coming off a solid 6-0 win over Hidden Valley, Ore., to begin the season last week, the Warriors hope to continue the positive momentum tonight.

Since her family took her out shooting when she was five-years old, Jenna Arellano has shown a knack for the sport of speed shooting.

“She took a liking to it and has been shooting since,” her father, Monte Arellano said.

So much so that at only 11 years old this Crescent City girl has just competed in the World Speed Shooting Championships (Steel Challenge) last month in Piru, Calif.,  as well as receiving praise from one of the top female shooters in the world.

Jenna finished in  4th place in the pre-teen open class division as the youngest participant.

“I practice a lot,” she said, saying her goal is to keep improving and mastering the sport.

Monte Arellano is also a speed shooter and said it has been a wonderful way for his family, including his son, 8, and  his wife to spend time together.
