What started out as one of the best offensive efforts of the season by the Del Norte High boys varsity basketball team went south in the second half Wednesday night.

Up by much as much as 13 points in the first half against McKinleyville, the Warriors looked like they could cruise to a much needed conference win. At the half Del Norte led 35-27.

In the first half, the Warriors seemed to be in sync and in control of the proceedings. But in the second half the fortunes of Del Norte started to change course. 

The Warriors struggled hitting shots and stopping the Panthers on defense. The squad scored only six points in the third with the game knotted up at 41-41 the end of the quarter.

The Warriors gave the large home crowd plenty of reasons to stand up and cheer Tuesday night.

In their last home dual meet of the year, the Del Norte High wrestling team remained undefeated in the Humboldt-Del Norte Conference by downing previously undefeated HDNC rival Eureka  41-33. Several younger wrestlers that the coaches hoped could pull off wins did. Big wins that took Del Norte over the edge included sophomore Richard Sanchez by pin at 152 pounds.

“He has really improved over the last couple of weeks,” Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad said. “We did not expect for him to win by fall. He wrestled a heck of a match.”

Panthers take down Warrior basketball girls

The Del Norte High girls basketball team fell to McKinleyville 62-25 on the road on Tuesday.

While the Warriors limited one of the Big 5 Conferences’ best players, Sage Romberg, to only five points, they could not prevent the rest of the team from scoring. Romberg normally scores around 20 points a game.

Del Norte head coach Buzz McCulloch said senior Kaylie Rook  had “her best defensive game of the year” guarding Romberg.

Warriors fall in another close battle against Tigers

Del Norte drops to 1-2 in Big 5 with 45-43 loss

ARCATA  — It was another battle between Arcata and Del Norte on Thursday, with the Tigers eking out an important 45-43 Big 5 Conference win.

After the Warriors tied things up 43-43 with 11 seconds left, the Tigers were fouled and  went 1-for-2 from the line. The Warriors could not get a score, and Arcata was fouled one more time and made one more free throw to earn the two-point win.

Read more... “The kids played hard but it was frustrating because we could not seem to get a break,” Warriors head coach Scott Alexander said.  It was a bunch of little things that did not fall their way such as shots not going in, or not getting a call or two that built up into the loss, he said.

The Del Norte High wrestling team improved to 5-0 in Humboldt-Del Norte Conference play by downing Hoopa and McKinleyville at home Wednesday night.

The Warriors had little trouble in their first of only two home dual meets this year, giving several grapplers from the junior varsity program a chance to see mat time.

Including several forfeits, Del Norte, the defending HDNC champions, defeated Hoopa 63-12 and McKinleyville 59-21.

Warrior girls play well in loss to Fortuna

FORTUNA — The Del Norte High girls varsity basketball team had a good outing in a loss to Fortuna, considered one of the elite teams in the Big 5 Conference, Wednesday night.

While the Warriors lost 63-46, head coach Buzz McCulloch said the girls showed marked improvement in all aspects of the game compared to their last contest a week ago against Eureka. In that game they were blown out 50-22 and played lackluster.

“We gave them a run for their money,” McCulloch said.  “We played with them. It was a good morale win for us.”

The triple overtime battle between Del Norte and Fortuna Tuesday night left those who walked out of Thunen Gym physically and mentally drained after a game that was truly a hair-raising roller coaster ride.

The Warriors won their first Big 5 Conference game of the year and snapped a two-game losing steak by downing the Huskies 69-57 in a contest that, like the Energizer Bunny, kept going and going.

Del Norte lost a four-point halftime lead, scored two points in the third and allowed Fortuna to tie things up at the buzzer at the end of regulation.

In the first and second overtimes, a resilient group of Warriors bent but did not break and broke the game open in the third overtime to come away with the win to go to 1-1 in the Big 5 and 7-5 overall.
