Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015 3C m Greg Knight Sports Editor :'. Oh, what a difference a season makes. A year ago this week, the Etna Lions varsity football team had a win under its belt and the squad from Siskiyou County would eventually head to the Northern Section championship game against Maxwell. This year, the Lions have gone down 0-2 to start, with the latest loss coming from the Portola Tigers after a 45-0 beat down last Friday night at home. With the win Portola now sports a 2-0 record on the season. The Tigers were so good, in fact, that the team, led by head coach Steve Heskett, was able to score touchdowns in every quarter -- and put up a 29-0 score at halftime. Starting off in the first five minutes of the game, quarterback Evan Leal connected to George Ourjanian on a 24-yard touchdown pass. That scoring drive was followed just minutes later, after Etna turned it over on a fumble, that Edgar Cuevas would make the first of his three rushing TDs in the game. Cuevas, a junior running back for the Tigers, added the other two scoring drives in the second quarter,, with a long 64-yard breakout just before the halftime break. Dominic Vukobradovich added a two-point conversion on the second touchdown after the kicking play broke down and forced some creative ball carrying. Asifto test out all of his weapons in one setting, Leal switched from a ground game in the first half to an aerial assault with Juan Rodriguez as his receiver of choice. In the third period alone, Rodriguez scored a touchdown on a 73-yard pass play from Leal and added another three points on a field goal. In the end, it was Patrick Remington who nailed the final spike into Etna's coffin with a 45-yard run to the Lions' end zone. The passing game was Leal's bread and butter all night as he threw for 96 yards with two completions on four trie -- all while managing to throw zero picks to the Etna defense. On the ground, Cuevas led his team with 178 yards on 12 carries. Remington followed with 62 yards on six carries, while Leal added 55 yards on five keepers. Memo Ruiz had five carries for 30 yards. On the defense, Richard Perkins led with nine tackles. Vukobradovich was also a big contributor with seven stops and two interceptions against the Etna offense. The Tigers will host the Pershing County (Nev.) Mustangs (2-0) this Friday night, with varsity kickoff set for 7 p.m. The Mustangs were the Division III state champions in the 2012-2013 season. Chester JV football Chester 43, Biggs 8 The Volcanoes junior varsity team racked up another win last Friday, defeating the Biggs Wolverines, 43-8, on the road. The ground game was essential for the squad as quarterback Sawyer Durkin scored on a keeper, while Owen Delacour rushed in for two scoring drives. Tony Rogers was the offensive powerhouse for the Vols, however, with three rushing TDs. The Vols will travel to Fall River this Friday. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Modoc 16, Quincy 0 The Quincy Trojans fell to 0-2 on the season after taking a hard 16-0 road loss to the Modoc Braves.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Hayfork 40, Greenville 0 The Greenville Indians also fell to 0-2 on the season after taking a 40-0 road loss to the Hayfork Tiberjacks.
