 Warriors start fast, fade in second half against Loggers

The first 40 minutes of the Del Norte High boys soccer game against Eureka was all Warriors, but the second 40 minutes swung heavily in the Loggers’ favor. After 80 minutes, the two teams couldn’t be separated and the game finished in a 2-2 tie.

“I am proud of the boys,” said head coach David Sanyaolu. “It ranks up there as one of my best games as a coach even though we didn’t get the win. Sometimes soccer is like that. You just have to take the results you get and work on what you can improve on.”

The Warriors struck first when sophomore Jorge Landeros found the back of Eureka’s net off of a pass from Aldair Garcia in the fourth minute to put Del Norte ahead 1-0. It was the third straight game in which the Warriors have scored an early goal within the first five minutes.

Warriors tennis sweeps Huskies

The Del Norte girls tennis team swept a shorthanded Fortuna squad 9-0 on Tuesday in Fortuna as the Warriors reached the halfway point of the season with four straight wins and a 4-2 overall record.

The Huskies have just five girls on the team this year and were forced to forfeit both the No. 6 singles match and the No. 3 doubles match. Del Norte won all seven matches that were played.

“Unfortunately, Fortuna is very inexperienced this year, so they didn’t have a very challenging team,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “Our kids looked good though.”

League play starts Friday for Warriors football

Del Norte starts its HDN title defense against McKinleyville at Whalen Field

The Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 football season will open in Del Norte Friday as the Warriors (1-3) host McKinleyville (0-1, 1-3) at Whalen Field starting at 7:30 p.m.

It has been a rough non-conference season for the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 this year. With the exception of Fortuna’s 4-0 record, the other four teams in the league are all below .500 with a combined 4-11 record.

Although the Warriors are currently 1-3 overall, they expect to get every team’s best effort in HDN play this year.

“We are the returning HDN champions, so everybody looks at you first, they want to be the ones to knock you off,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “Then you look at Humboldt versus Del Norte and they want to knock you off. They know it, they grow up with it in youth football.”

 Shorthanded Warriors top North Coast Prep after reshuffling its roster

The Del Norte girls tennis lineup looked a lot different on Saturday against North Coast Prep than it had in its first four matches, but the Warriors pulled through for their third straight victory with a 6-3 final score.

“I think we did pretty good today,” said Bailee Drown. “Some of us won and some of us lost, but overall we played well.”

Del Norte was without its No. 2 singles players and half of its No. 1 doubles team, Olivia Jeffcoat, due to sickness.

 The Del Norte volleyball team bounced back from its first winless weekend at the Anderson Tournament with a three-set sweep of Brookings-Harbor (25-11, 25-10, 25-12) in Thunen Gym on Monday.

The Warriors struggled on Friday and Saturday at the Anderson Tournament, losing 2-0 to Shasta and Arcata on Friday and falling 2-0 against Red Bluffs and Shasta again on Saturday.

Although the Anderson Tournament was by far the toughest competition that Del Norte has faced this year according to head coach Debbie Lorenzi, she felt the Warriors could have been more competitive.

 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

“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.”
