Fortuna tops DN 37-13 on gridiron

The Del Norte football team struggled with untimely mistakes again on Friday, and Fortuna was able to take advantage to grab a 37-13 victory in Thunen Field.

“We played them toe to toe, and it was a great battle in that first half,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “They had their good plays and we had our good plays, but we just shot ourselves in the foot. You can’t compete at this level and continue to do that. I am just wracking my brains on what we can do.”

The Del Norte volleyball team kicked off its Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league schedule with a three-set sweep on Eureka (25-17, 25-14, 25-14) in Thunen Gym on Thursday.

“We were really focused on hustling hard,” said senior captain Regin Loftin. “That is what we worked on all preseason and ever since the Anderson Tournament, and I think we showed it a lot today. We hit hard and we dug. Our biggest problem was our serves, but we will probably work on that (in practice on Friday.)”

There are no undefeated teams left in the Humboldt-Del Norte girls tennis league this fall.

Del Norte gave a shorthanded McKinleyville squad its first lost of the season 6-3 for its sixth straight win of the season to improve to 6-2 overall.

Furious finish to first half pushes Del Norte boys soccer past Cubs

The Del Norte boys soccer team picked up its pace through the middle of its match against South Fork on Wednesday and rode the push to a 4-1 victory in Miranda.

After a long drive south, Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu felt his players were a little lackadaisical at the beginning of the game.

Slow start foils Warrior girls soccer in 3-1 loss to South Fork Tuesday

When the girls soccer game between Del Norte and South Fork kicked off on Wednesday, Del Norte head coach Clar Byers said it looked like the 2½ hour drive was still dogging the Warriors.

“We were pretty sluggish. I think the long trip took a little bit of a toll on us,” he said.

Del Norte conceded a pair of early goals in the 5th and 7th minute, and that proved to be the difference as South Fork held on for a 3-1 win.

King of Clubs: The original social network

The millennial generation walks around with their head stuck in the cell phone sand. Why?  Because of electronic social media, that’s why. 

During my trip to Florida this past month, I spend a lot of time people-watching. I was astounded at what I found. Maybe 1 out of 10 people were actually having a physical conversation with a person, everyone else was lost in the cyber dogma that lives within their smart phones or tabloids. Is Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, billy bobby sammy grams or whatever is out there, actually our next generation’s “social” interaction? 

God help us all if it is, and may the rules of golf never change!

Del Norte tennis turns tables on St. B's

In many ways Tuesday’s girls tennis match between Del Norte and St. Bernard’s looked similar to the season opener between the two teams in early September. This time it was the Warriors who managed to edge out the Crusaders for a hard-fought 5-4 victory

“We are extremely happy with the improvement that all of our kids are making, from our number one player to the exhibition matches,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “At the same time, the other teams have improved too. It was night and day compared to our first match of the season against St. Bernard’s. It was just as competitive, but at a much higher level."

Warriors prepare for undefeated Huskies

After a win in its first Homboldt-Del Norte Big 5 game of the season, the Del Norte football team will get a better idea of where it stands in the league on Friday night when it welcomes undefeated Fortuna to Whalen Field.

Against McKinleyville last week, the Warriors managed to overcome 18 penalties for 146 yards to pull out an exciting 36-27 homecoming win.

“It was an exciting game, but for us we need to get more disciplined,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “You can’t have 18 penalties and expect to be in ballgames week after week.”

Volleyball turns tide to win at Gold Beach

In a game similar to their matchup earlier this month, the Warriors handled the Gold Beach Panthers in straight sets, winning 25-17, 25-14 and 25-21 Wednesday night at Gold Beach High School.

The Warriors (11-7) pounced on the Panthers in the opening set, jumping out to a 12-3 lead thanks in large part to a 10-point streak behind the serve of co-captain Payten Healy.

Gold Beach struck back, however, with a 5-point streak of their own behind the serve of Heidi Hancock and the defense of sophomore Kayleanna Ridens, whose net play helped the Panthers tie the set at 15-all.

Warrior Memories: Proud of support we show our youth

As a Warrior player, coach and fan who goes back more years than I like to count, Del Norte has always been a great place to participate in sports. The way this community supports their youth is really amazing.

I can remember back to my time as a Warrior, which started in 1946, how great it was back then there was a club that had been formed by local citizens called the Quarterback Club and while it may sound like it was only football-oriented, they supported all Warrior sports.

This group provided me with an experience that I will always cherish. It was after my first season on the Warrior gridiron and the Quarterback Club was holding a dinner for the football team after the season. This is something they always did, They always brought in a big name athlete to speak at the ceremony.
