Photos by Greg Knight Chester falls to Paradise Adventist, 66-40, in playcffs Greg Knight Sports Editor One could imagine that somewhere within the cloister of the Chester Volcanoes boys' locker room there are five lockers with the words "Don't quit" scrawled into the metal of the door-- a fitting directive for the last team standing in the Northern Section Division VI playoff hunt from Plumas County. Despite all the heart and skill they could muster, the Volcanoes fell to the No. 1-seeded Paradise Adventist Academy Cougars, 66-40, on Tuesday, March 3, in Paradise. Chester entered the 2014-15 playoffs as the No. 5 seed and dispatched Princeton (No. 12) and upset Hayfork (No. 4) before earning the right to face Paradise, the defending Pioneer-Valley League champion, to try for a shot at playing for a section title against Liberty Christian on March 6. The game against Paradise began as a scoring drive for the Cougars in the opening five minutes; Chester dropped to a 22-7 deficit in the first period and the entire shooting cadre of the Vols' offense comprised seniors Wyatt Durkin and Eddy Perez with buckets, while Caleb Sylvester was able to inject some surprise off a deep outside shot for three: It was only slightly better in the second; Tristan James added to the trio of scorers from the opening period, adding a two-pointer to help the Vols earn 12points and enter the halftime break trailing 36-19: Chester head coach Jake Simms must have said something right in the locker See Chester, page 2C JL .... the waitingl IMffrr!

The meal I had eaten, before driving around breakneck turns that could take my life faster than a Morro Bay snake, was starting to bubble and brew a dissonance. "Oh, God, my God, what are wreaking upon my gut," I cried, or maybe something to that effect. It seemed as if the road stretched out ever / longer in front of me, making the 120-kilometer trip seem like a M6bius strip of destiny -- would they win or would they lose? Beyond the previous hour's chimichanga, that was the question. The boss, Mr. Mac, had called me from his plush office, known as Shangri-La, and given me a decent amount of Andrew Jacksons to venture down the hill into that fierce netherworld called the city -- it was a place I tried to avoid, mostly because of the insane drivers, mall-bound shoppers and the occasional memory of what transpired before I found a little piece of the woods. It wasn't pretty, those memories. : :' "Go down there and get the story, sport," Mr. Mac said over the wire from his office, which was always stacked with pagesll feet high. "We'll have some good times waiting for you if you get back with the goods." The "story" this "sport" , was entrusted with getting *PRICES PLUS TA,k LICENSE, SMOG AND DOC.
