Portola teams defeat Loyalton in league opener Shannon Morrow Sports Editor Portola fans had an enjoy- able evening at Portola High School last Friday night, as they watched their boys' and girls' basketball teams de- feat Loyalton in their league openers. The Portola boys won 61- 41, and the Portola girls won 46-27. In the' boys' match, the Tigers took a 20-14 lead by the end of the first quarter, and stretched their lead to 35-22 at halftime. The teams played fairly evenly though the third quarter, and then Portola outscored Loyalton 14-6 in the final period for a 20-point victory. "I was nervous about that game," said Portola coach Brad Miller. "I didn't know how we'd play." Portola hadn't played for over two weeks, and was coming off a 20-point loss to Truckee. In addition, Loyal- ton has a good boys' basket- ball team this year. "We played well," said Miller. "I was pleased. I don't tell them that very of- ten." Miller said it was a great way to open the league schedule. The Feather River League has become tougher this year, as the Chester and Loyalton teams have grown stronger. In Portola's win last Fri- day, Cliff Robinson and Mario Rodriguez each turned in a double-double for the Tigers. Robinson to- taled 19 points and 12 re- bounds, while Rodriguez recorded 13 points and 15 re- bounds. Les Carr and Dillon Soares each claimed eight points, and Kyle Heskett scored seven. Erick Miller led with four steals, and Cart snagged three. Heskett led with five assists. In the girls' match, the La- dy Tigers took a 10-2 advan- tage at the end of the first quarter and a 24-11 lead at halftime. Early in the fourth quar- ter, Loyalton worked back to within eight points with a score of 32-24, but the Tigers put the game away with a 14- 3 run. No statistics were avail- able from the girls' match. The Portola boys' and girls' teams travel to Quincy tonight, Jan. 27. f "t o Finally there's enough/ Local backcountry skiers revel in a plethora of new snow at Bucks Summit. The bevy of storms over the past 10 days saved this year's ski season by adding more than six feet of snow to the surrounding ridges.
