Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015 3C n Five-Star League Chester boys take lead i Greg Knight Sports Writer For the second time in as many weeks, a boys' basketball game in Plumas County would determine a league leader -- and see just one team remain undefeated against conference opponents. Such was the case as the Chester Volcanoes hosted Liberty Christian on Tuesday, Feb. 3. Both teams came into the game at 3-0 in Five-Star League action, though the Vols would ultimately prevail against the Patriots on a 62-55 final score. The game was nbt entirely smooth sailing for Chester; head coach Jake Simms' squad squandered a 10-point lead in the first half by letting the Patriot offense climb out of the hole to take a 47-45 lead at the end of the third period. Senior Wyatt Durkin, the eventual lead scorer for the Vols with 22, was held to only seven in the first 16 minutes, though fellow senior Eddy Perez carried the water, earning 10 of his 14 points in the opening half. The second half was where Durkin came back to life, dropping five buckets and a three-pointer to go along with a two-of-four showing from the free-throw line for 15 points. After matching score for score up to the end of the third and for nearly the first two minutes of the fourth, junior guard Jason Schlueter opened the floodgates for Chester with a booming three-pointer to take the lead -- one the Vols would not relinquish again. "They started pressuring us full-court and we started panicking," Simms said. "We got back in by playing defense again and getting some transition buckets. When Schlueter executed that play for the three in the corner it was huge. This was by far the best team effort of the season for us, by far." Tristan James, a junior for the Vols, said his team was able to come back from a ]ate six-point Patriots deficit by playing fundamental basketball. "We're animals," James said. "We came back in the fourth period and played as a team by passing the ball and played defense hard. It's pretty simple." With three league games left this year -- Los Molinos, Redding Christian and a rematch with Liberty to close out the season -- Perez said he is looking forward to working toward a Five-Star League championship. "I want our team to just keep pushing hard and playing really good basketball," Perez added. "If we can do that, we stand a chance." Caleb Sylvester erlded the night with six points off a pair of threes, while Schlueter finished with four points. Sawyer Durkin and Jer White each added two. The victory extends Chester's win streak to six and gives the team a 12-7 overall record on the season. Both the boys' and girls' teams will host Los Molinos on Thursday night. The results of the Vols' and Lady Vols' Tuesday outing against Mercy were not available by press time. Lady Volcanoes Chester 40, Liberty 22 Battling for the No. 2 spot in Five-Star League standings, just behind league leader Redding Christian (18-3, 4-0), the Lady Vols were able to snag the win away from the Patriots on a 40-28 final score, despite having trailed Liberty 18-16 at the halftime break. The first half was slow going for Chester as only Reanna Trujillo and Rebecca Branch were able to hit solitary three-pointers before being joined by an eight-point, four-basket run by Paige Reed. The second half, however, started with a big shot from Trujillo. Head coach Aaron Hardesty must have said something right during the break -- Trujillo came out and immediately dropped a three-pointer that got Chester rolling. Trujillo's trey was followed by two more deep shots by Branch and Kaytlan Hedrick, who led all Volcano scorers with 12 points. Reed finished the evening with eight points and the trio of Branch, Trujillo and Theresa Miller put up six points each. Elizabeth Bereznak ended with two. The Lady Vols are now 3-1 in league play and possess a 9-11 overall record, having won six of their last seven games.
