FRC soccer teams eachbeat Shasta The Feather River College men's and women's soccer teams opened conference play on a wet and windy af- ternoon against the Shasta College Knights Tuesday, Oct. 4. After coming off of a stretch of 11 matches in 21 days, the Golden Eagles teams had a welcome 13-day rest to get healthy before Tuesday's match. The men (9-2-2), who are ranked No. 13 in the state, opened the day's action with a 2 p.m. kickoff, and it only took 15 minutes for FRC to score. Freshman Dinesh Prasad surged forward from his left back position and unleashed a shot from 30 yards out that squirted through the wet hands of the Knights keeper and ended up settling into the back of the Shasta net. Twenty minutes later, the Golden Eagles were awarded a free kick from 40 yards out, and freshman right back Jason Apolinar found sophomore Makenzie Lukas streaking into the goal area. Lukas wasted no time slashing home a header goal for a 2-0 FRC lead. In the second half, the Golden Eagles dominated possession of the ball and created numerous scoring opportunities from both flanks, but as the rain in- creased, so did the greasi- ness of the ball, and no more goals were to be had. Sophomore keeper Antony Wakeford recorded four saves on for his 10th clean sheet of the season. Wakeford is now ranked No. 5 amongst keepers in the state, with a goals against average of 0.54. "I don't know if we were nervous during the first half because this was our confer- ence opener, or if the rain and wind was getting into our heads, but we played aw- ful soccer," said second-year coach Don Williams. "In the second half we made some great adjustments and we were back to our attractive passing and attacking socCer that I want to see us play." Next, it was the Lady Eagles' (4-5-3) turn to see if they could pull off a conference opening win against a very strong Lady Knights team, which came in at 6-4-0 and boasted the No. 3 scorer in the state in Allie Maxwell. The FRC women were def- initely up for the challenge, as their trademark posses- sion and passing game paid dividends with a 3-1 win. Freshman Keaton Wheeler latched onto a ball inside the penalty box and drove a shot low and to the near post of the Shasta keeper. The slick ball skipped into the goal for an early 1-0 FRC lead. The Lady Eagles nursed the 1-0 lead though the half, but were not finished scoring. Freshman and former Quincy High player of the year Samantha Green came forward with the ball from her center back position and found fellow freshman Ale- sha Stoffel on the left flank. Stoffel made a move with the ball and cracked a shot over the head of the Lady Knights keeper and into the net at the far post for a 2-0 FRC lead. Shasta still had something to say about how the game would go, however, and beat FRC's very tough goal keep- er, Korey Cline, to make the match close at 2-1. Cline made sure that there were no further goals, recording eight saves on the day. It took only two minutes for the FRC women to re- spond to the Shasta goal, when freshman Grace Pe- droza struck a laser shot that ricocheted off the bot- tom of the crossbar and into the back of the Shasta net to make the final score 3-1. "This was by far our best performance this year," said Williams. "Our women are really playing attractive soc- cer, and we moved the ball very well. Our defensive play still needs work, but Cline came up with some key outstanding saves late in the match to preserve the win." Next up for Feather River is a road trip to Butte Col- lege Oct. 14.

The Lassen National For- est said last week that ithas plans to improve its 24-mile trail network in the Cari- bou Wilderness next sum- mer. Improvements include waterbar installation at the trailhead, new destination signs, a kiosk with map and information, and portal signs for each trailhead, in- cluding Spencer Meadows, Heart Lake, Echo Lake and Star. Lake trailheads. Waterbars? It kills me to see public agencies spend- ing money on waterbars. Good trail design negates the need for waterbars. In- stalling waterbars is a stop- gap measure.
