Photo by Greg Knight Quincy girls, boys trounce league foe Biggs Greg Knight Sports Writer sports@plumasnews.com L The Lady Trojans opened up last Friday night in a doubleheader of basketball action against the Biggs Lady Wolverines with a 50-40 win -- a victory that ups Quincy's overall win-loss record to 1i-3 and 2-0 in Mid-Valley League standings. Head coach Harlon Sevier's squad never trailed in the game, which saw senior Jasmin Sherman lead with*15 points and fellow senior Angel Garrish put up 11 points of her own. Rachel Hanna added eight points and Haley Cline put up seven on the scoreboard. Taylor Friden ended the night ,with six points. Defensively, Sherman was also a force to be reckoned with as she penciled eight rebounds over 32 minutes of play. Hanna led with 15 grabs under the basket, though Garrish was the all-around defensive leader with eight rebounds and a trio of steals. Cline also logged three steals of her own in the game. The Lady Trojans' next matchup will be tomorrow in Fall River. The squad will return home Friday when Quincy hosts Esparto. Boys' basketball Quincy 84, Biggs 38 The Trojans picked up where the Lady Trojans left off, defeating the Wolverines in an 84-38 smashing that saw junior Jakob Grammer score 19 on the night, which included a pair of three-pointers made from deep outside a withering Biggs defense. Three more Trojans were in double digits for scoring, with Brady Rick (18), Tyler Hartline (13) and Crowe Herbertson-Deemer (11) combing with Grammer for 61 points in a victory that ups Quincy's overall record to 12-6 and 2-0 in the Mid-Valley League. Starting in the second period, with Quincy leading 19-11, there was no time wasted in shutting down the Wolverines as the Trojans' defense held them down on a 27-4 scoring run. With a 46-15 lead at the half, head coach Mike Woodlee's team kept up the pressure with a 28-6 third period before finally adding another 10 points in the fourth.

Greenville's next matchup will be this Friday when head coach Sue Weber's team hosts Westwood at 5:30 p.m. Loyalton 68, Quincy 60 A lackluster second quarter performance from the Lady Trojans made all the difference, it seems, in Quincy's 68-60 loss to Loyalton last week on the road -- and the loss of sophomore Kaylin Henderson early in the fourth quarter to a twisted knee didn't do the squad any favors either. The Trojans only trailed by a point at the end of the first period but were completely hamstrung by the Lady Grizzlies in the next eight minutes of play as Loyalton went on a 17-9 scoring run. Senior Jasmin Sherman, who led Quincy with 10 points in the first alone was held to just three buckets before the half. The only other points of the period came from free throws by senior Angel Garfish and junior Haley Cline. Before falling victim to a knee injury later in the game, Henderson was able to score seven of the Trojans' 15 points in the third, including a three-point shot that came from deep right court. After putting up eight points in the game, she came out early in the fourth after a Loyalton player collided with her under the basket. "Not having Kaylin in for the rest of the game was a big loss for us," said head coach Harlon Sevier. Despite an 18-point run in the final minutes the Trojans were unable to find the win, falling to 11-3 overall. Leading the Trojans in scoring were Sherman with 23 points and Garrish with 12. Cline was able to put up nine points, which included a three-pointer, while Shannia Barnes ended with six. Taylor Friden rounded out the scorers with two buckets for four points. Defensively, Henderson led with eight rebounds. Both the Trojans and Lady Trojans will host Esparto on Wind, Fire or Water Damage have you frustrated? Need Help?

The girls' varsity game will tip off at 5 p.m., with the boys' action starting at 6:30 p.m. Boys' basketball Portola 67, Chester 53 Despite trailing by as much as 11 points in the first half of their home game against Portola, the Chester Vols were able, during the final two minutes of the half and thanks to a buzzer-beating three-pointer from junior Tanner Counts, to force their way into a one-point, 29-28 lead -- though it would not be enough as the Tigers rallied back in the final 16 minutes for a 67-53 win. A key factor, in Chester's uphill battle against the Tigers was the notable absence of 6-foot-6 senior Wyatt Durkin, who is out for at least a week with a bum ankle. According to Vols athletic director Paul Hardig,.it could have been much worse. "We originally thought it might be for two weeks, but we decided to give it a week and come back, take a look at it and see where we are at," Hardig said. The Tigers were anchored all night by the massive offensive output of Evan Leal, who finished the game with a 20-point showing that included a three-pointer and seven shots from the free-throw line. Chris Avalos and Juan Rodriguez were also in double digits with 16 and 12, respectively. Rodriguez was able to log a double-double as well thanks to his 14 defensive rebounds and five grabs under his own basket. Portola head coach Tim Brubaker said his team let down in its pressure a little bit in the first half, but was able to bring it back in the final minutes of the game. "In the second we quit doing what were supposed to do with our assignments on Portola's Evan Leal (No. 12) rises up above a trio of Chester defenders as the Tigers beat the Vols on a 67-53 final score. Leal led the Tigers with 20 points in the game. Photo by Greg Knight offense and we absolutely quit playing defense, so even though we know we have to compete for 32 minutes, we only competed for about 29 in that first half," Brubaker said. "It is what it is. This Chester team had a tough week and their big guy, Wyatt, was out. It was a big win for us, but our hearts go out to this team and this school. Some things are more important than a basketball game." Chester's Caleb Sylvester led with 15 points and Tristan Lee was also doubled up in scoring with 12. With the victory, Portola improved to 8-7 overall and 1-0 in Mid-Valley League standings while Chester drops to 6-7 on the season. The Tigers will tip off against Biggs at 6:30 p.m. this Friday night while the Vols will play at Redding Christian starting at 6:30 p.m. Greenville 77, Loyalton 69 The Greenville Indians escaped from Loyalton with a 77-69 win last week -- thanks in great part to the offensive mission undertaken by the trio of Justus Eaglesmith, Christian Beres and Darian Ports who, when all was said and done, combined for 60 points in the game. Both Eaglesmith and Walker Meyers were also giants under the basket with 19 and 13 rebounds, respectively. Undefeated so far in Pioneer-Mountain League standings at 2-0, the Indians' overall record rse to 9-3 so far this season with the win. The Indians will host Westwood on Friday evening.
