The Del Norte Warriors were pushed all the way in their league opener at Eureka High on Saturday night, but pulled out a hard-fought 21-14 win to remain on track for a third consecutive Big 4 championship.

Just three weeks after crushing the Loggers 45-0 in Crescent City, the second matchup of the season between these two rivals was much more competitive, with the outcome not decided until the final seconds when Del Norte senior Giancarlo Desolenni recovered an onside kick.
