The Del Norte girls tennis team continued its winning ways on Tuesday with an 8-1 victory over Eureka for its seventh straight team win.

Although the Warriors won the meet handily, Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar didn’t see the same level of play from his girls as in the previous match when they took down then-undefeated McKinleyville.

The first 40 minutes of the girls soccer game between Arcata and Del Norte was rough on the Warriors.

The Tigers grabbed the lead seven minutes into the game and led 4-0 just 10 minutes later. Arcata added a pair of goals late in the first half to take a 6-0 advantage into the break. The Warriors added an extra defender to its lineup, switching from a 4-4-2 lineup to a 5-3-1 for the second half, and Del Norte held the Tigers in check through the final 40 minutes to keep the final score 6-0.

The Arcata boys soccer team dictated the tempo and the run of play for most of its game in Del Norte on Wednesday and came away with a 3-0 victory over the Warriors.

“We played one of the top teams in the league today,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “What let us down today is our passes were not accurate, our ball control wasn’t very good and we are just working too hard. We are just running about the field. That is something that I harp on a lot.”

The day ended with a hardfought 36-25 Del Norte Blue victory over previously undefeated Redwood.

Huskies boys soccer outclasses DN in 11-0 victory

The Del Norte boys soccer team had a tough matchup in Fortuna on Saturday against the perennial Humboldt-Del Norte boys soccer powerhouse Huskies. Fortuna showed once again why they have been one of the top teams in the league for years with an 11-0 victory over the Warriors.

“They were far better than us,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “The boys competed as much as they could, but the gulf in class was too wide.”

Fortuna edges Warrior girls soccer 1-0

Although the Fortuna girls soccer team was obviously the aggressor against Del Norte on Saturday, the Warrior defense turned the Huskies back time and time again in its 1-0 loss in Fortuna.

“The girls played really well. It was an exciting game,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “Our girls stepped up and played a very defensive game. We had a few opportunities — a few shots on goal — but they had 30 shots against us.”

Reel Deal: Smith River now closed for low flows

Although reports of salmon being caught in the Smith River began surfacing last week, the river has closed as part of sweeping closures to all rivers in Northern California subject to low flow closures. Anglers have still been having some luck on the Klamath River, however, and the strong bottom fishing season will remain open until the end of October.

Karlie Scott takes sixth at Eureka cross country meet

The Del Norte boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Eureka on Wednesday for their second Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league meet of the season.

The entire field turned in a slightly slower times than in the first meet due to the hilly course, but the Warriors’ only female runner, Karlie Scott,  finished six places higher than the first week, taking sixth place out of 30 runners with a time of 23:15.3.

Warrior Memories: Young a relentless tackler

One of the things I enjoy about writing this column is when I can look back at teammates I had in high school that have given me so many fond memories. One of those people that will always be very special to me is Al Young.

Al and I played our senior year at Del Norte under coach Chuck DeAutremont. Al played football, basketball and track, in which he was an outstanding pole vaulter. Al played four years of football as quarterback and defensive back. Al had a better than average speed and was an aggressive tackler from his safety position. 

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.”
