Warriors win in shootout

The Del Norte football team got off to a strong start to the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 season with an impressive 63-34 victory on the road in McKinleyville on Friday.

The Warriors looked like they were in trouble early after allowing the Panthers to score the game’s first 14 points just two minutes into the first quarter. After falling behind, however, senior running back Chad Bell broke open a 42-yard touchdown run in which he broke several tackles and carried several defenders into the end zone. That score started a run of 35-straight points for Del Norte in less than 10 minutes of game time.

Warrior Memories: Trone shows Del Norte how to be a true champion

Editor’s note: This edition of Warrior Memories, normally written by former Del Norte athlete, coach and athletic director Dick Trone (pictured above), has been hijacked by his daughters Kimberly Trone and Holly Hunt to honor Trone’s induction into the Del Norte Hall of Fame. Since Trone wrote a series of columns highlighting each of this year’s Hall of Fame inductees except himself, it seemed only fair.

At the heart of any great team there is a champion, and that champion is a coach.

A real coach is among the first to recognize and champion your child’s potential. A real coach is a champion for teamwork and sportsmanship, even when the score is down. A real coach champions leadership through adversity, grace in defeat and gratitude at the height of victory.

Sirens close gap, fall 180-159 to Brawlers

Victory slipped out of the Tsunami Sirens’ grasp in the closing minutes of their final home roller derby bout of the season on Saturday at the Fairgrounds, but the 180-159 loss to the Boneyard Brawlers was a big improvement over the 129-point loss to the Cherry City Derby Girls in Salem, Ore., early in the season. 

“The last time we played this team we lost by over 100 — this was way better,” said Jenn “JennZilla” Longrie. “Losing was still a bummer, though, because we were ahead for about 80 percent of the match.”
