 The Del Norte junior varsity football team pulled out its third straight victory of the season on Friday in a hard-fought 8-2 game against McClymonds.

According to head coach Kenny Price, the difference in the game was toughness.

“All week I told the kids that the toughest team is going to win,” Price said. “We knew that McClymonds was going to be fast but we feel like we are tougher than they are. Those guys were pretty physical, but today we were just tougher.”

Warriors hold off Panthers for 3-2 win

The Del Norte boys soccer team built a big first half lead and held on for a 3-2 victory in McKinleyville on Saturday.

“The boys showed grit and determination, but it wasn’t the prettiest game,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “There wasn’t a lot of flow to the game, and our passes were not as free flowing as I would have liked, but they eked out the victory by fighting.”

The Warriors stormed out of the gates early when sophomore Jorge Landeros drew a penalty kick within the first five minutes of the match and Roger Carrillo converted it into a 1-0 Del Norte lead.

Girls soccer falls 3-0 against Panthers

The Del Norte girls soccer team got a boost from the return of two of its top defensive players, but the Warriors were still without a pair of starters for much of Saturday’s 3-0 loss in McKinleyville.

Goalkeeper Katie Aguirre and defender Kes-e-loh McQuillen returned after sitting out of the Warriors’ 9-0 loss to Ferndale on Wednesday, and the impact on the Del Norte defense was immediate.

“Defender (Kes-e-loh) McQuillen and keeper Katie Aguirre bolstered the defense and helped minimize scoring,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers.

Scores falling for Del Norte girls golf

The Del Norte girls golf team continued its improvement on Monday in the third Humboldt-Del Norte league meet of the season at Bigfoot golf course near Willow Creek.

Siera Fitzhugh paced the Warriors with a score of 104, followed by Jenna McBride and Gina Danna with 116 and 117 respectively. Savannah Gilbert finished with a score of 144 and Payton Webb finished with a score of 150.

“It was a nice improvement from the girls,” said Del Norte head coach Allison Eckart. “The scores are going in the right direction. Danna was definitely putting better and she gained some strokes there. Payton is definitely getting more comfortable with her backswing. It was a good day.”

The McClymonds football team used good field position to build a lead in the first half, then broke the game open with some big plays early in the second half as they beat Del Norte 42-14 at Whalen Field on Friday in the Warriors’ last nonleague game of the regular season.

The McClymonds offense had great field position on each of the first times it touched the ball. A big punt return set McClymonds up at the Del Norte 32 yard line in its first possession of the game and the visitors scored on their second play from scrimmage, a 31-yard bubble screen for a touchdown.

McClymonds’ next possession started at the Del Norte 34 yard line after an interception was returned nearly 60 yards. McClymonds scored on a 5-yard slant pass five plays later.

 Warriors add two golfers at home meet

For the first time in Alison Eckhart’s three years as the Del Norte girls golf coach, she had to get a bigger vehicle to haul the entire team up to the Del Norte Golf Course on Thursday for the second Humboldt-Del Norte meet of the year.

The Warriors, who added freshman Savannah Gilbert to the roster at the beginning of the season to go along with returning seniors Siera Fitzhugh and Gina Danna, picked up two more girls this week and were able to field a full squad for the first time since the 2012 season.

“It is great,” Eckhart said. “It has been a couple years in the making. I am pretty excited about the energy and excitement of the younger people. It is nice feeling like you are really representing.”

Warrior Memories: Warriors welcomed soccer in 1980

It took a long time for what is probably the world’s most popular sport to make it to the Warrior campus as an official sport.

In 1980, soccer was started as a coed club sport. It was started by coaches Stu Scholl and Ron Hagg. Since it was not an offi cial interscholastic sport, they called themselves The Surfs.

The players had to buy their own uniforms, and they were just able to get them in time for their first competition, which was a tournament at McKinleyville High School. The team selected four captains, Joe Gregorio, Sandy Seils, Roger Rich and Dan Brush.

Weekend Warriors: tennis and soccer

Reel Deal: Bottomfishing stays strong

 With salmon and halibut both off-limits on the California coast, anglers have been targeting bottomfish throughout the week and have reportedly been having a lot of luck with both rockfi sh and lingcod, as they have all season. The steelhead seem to have moved upstream on the Klamath, and salmon fi shing has reportedly slowed down. Many fishing guides are traveling north to the Coos River, which has reportedly been fishing well all week.

Ocean fishing

Ocean anglers had several chances to get out this past week. Capt. Jim Mitchell, of Gotcha Hooked Fish Trips, said he was targeting bottomfish near the Sisters on Saturday and caught limits of lingcod and rockfish. Although Mitchell said he usually stops targeting rockfi sh after catching the limit of five black snappers, he hauled in a bunch of blues, as well as a couple vermilion to allow him to reach the 10-rockfish limit.
