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.”

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.

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.

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.)”
