Late penalties sink DN football in Fort Bragg

The Del Norte football team saw game slip through its hands in the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ 20-14 loss on the road to Fort Bragg on Friday.

After the first three quarters proved to be a defensive struggle, the fourth quarter gave way to a flurry off offensive activity. Fort Bragg struck first in the final quarter. The Timberwolves were aided by back-to-back personal fouls (a late hit and an unsportsmanlike penalty) that turned a 27-yard pass into a 57-yard Warriors’ 28 yard line. The Timberwolves scored four plays later on a 1-yard touchdown run.

The Warriors answered back with a drive of its own that stalled out deep in Fort Bragg territory. After a failed fourth-down attempt, the Warriors were again hit with a pair of 15-yard penalties, both called against the bench, that allowed the Timberwolves to take over on the Del Norte 40 yard line rather than their own 25. Fort Bragg then drove the ball into the red zone, but the on fourth and 8 on the Del Norte 12 yard line to give the ball back to the offense with 3:10 left in the game.

Les was a difficult teammate to tackle

In 1948 I put on my first football uniform and became a Warrior who would always charish football as his favorite sport.

As I look back on that season there are not a lot of former teammates I can still shake hands with and say hello to. One of those that I can is 1949 graduate Les Horn. Les taught me a lot about football. 

Les was a running back who, I learned very quickly, was really hard to tackle. I have seen very few running backs who could get their shoulder pads as low as Les. He did not have great speed but if we needed 3 or 4 yards he was going to get them.
