Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 3C Chester quarterback Chris Brown throws a well-timed screen pass over a blitzing defender for a good gain last Friday. Photo by Shannon Morrow FRC women record a draw The Feather River College women's soccer team traveled to Redding to take on the Shas- ta College Knights Oct. 5, when the Golden Eagles walked away with a hard- fought 2-2 draw and a well- earned point on the road. Shasta opened the scoring with a well-placed chip shot over FRC keeper Kirsten Coul- tas. Coultas, the FRC co-captain, is still recovering from a hip injury. She came up with four saves on the day and cut out another five through balls by playing high up in the box. "What I love about having Kirsten in goal is that she plays so confidently high in her box, which I know from experience cuts out a lot of goal scoring opportunities that opponents might other- wise have," said coach Don Williams. The FRC women went into half time down 1-0, but came out on fire in the second half. FRC's trademark is to target passes to the feet of their teammates, rather than resort to the typical kick-and-run style of many untrained oppo- nents. "When we pass hard to our targets, most teams cannot stop us." said Williams. "Dis- cipline is the key, and when we do this, the game is beauti- ful to watch." Targeted passing paid off in the 60th minute, when the La- dy Eagles moved the ball down the field and the former Quincy High School combina- tion of Blanca Ruiz to Gaby Naranjo paid off with a match- tying goal. This was Naranjo's third of the season. Ruiz played the ball across the box to Naranjo who chipped the Knights keep- er. Shasta responded 15 min- utes later with a breakaway goal, but Feather River was not dismayed. Ten minutes before the final whistle, freshman Madeline Ramos struck her fourth goal of the season by hitting her patented left-footed shot over the head of the helpless Knights keeper. Ramos, who led all players with nine shots on the day, was not done. She hit a right- footed screamer toward goal that barely skimmed over the crossbar. "I cannot tell you how elat- ed I am with our women," said Williams. "It has been a diffi- cult, injury-riddled season, but they pull together and will not quit." k i o i U P I0 PLUMAS PINES IN GOLF RESORT bar & grill & PLoULMFARSE ;INET S S 5 5 per player including cart Valid Any Day of the Week NOW through the end of the 2010 Season $ 7 5 Golf & Dinner Special Valid until October 23,2010.

The victory brought Quin- cy to 3-0 in the Mid-Valley League, while dropping Co- lusa's overall record to 0-6. No statistics from the game were made available. Portola 33, Esparto 32 For the second week in a row, the Portola Tigers staged a come-from-behind victory at home last Friday, when the Tigers edged Espar- to 33-32 for their homecom- ing game. After trailing 26-20 at half- time, Portola scored 13 points in the third quarter while holding Esparto to 6 points. The fourth quarter turned into a defensive battle and both teams went scoreless, giving Portola the win. The Tigers benefited from interceptions by Kyle Hes- kett and Oscar Romero and fumble recoveries by Klint Williams and Tyler Atkins. Heskett scored two touch- downs for Portola, while Williams, Mario Rodriguez and Evan Hungerford each scored one. Portola quarterback Piero Selvaggio completed 6-of-10 passes for 126 yards and three touchdowns. Heskett and Rodriguez caught three and two passes, respectively. On the ground, Williams gained 97 yards on eight car- ries, Heskett gained 97 yards on 13 carries, and Hunger- ford added 39 yards on six at- tempts. Portola's defense was led by Williams (seven tackles, three assists), Romero (five tackles, four assists) and Ro- driguez (four tackles, six as- sists). FRC 21, Sierra 27 OT After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter, Feather River scored two touch- downs in the in the second quarter to tie the game at halftime. The Golden Eagles took the lead on their first drive of the second half with a 55-yard touchdown run by Reggie Powers, but Sierra then tied it with a short touchdown pass. In overtime, Sierra's de- fense scored the winning touchdown after picking up a fumbled pitch. Chester 22, Maxwell 58 The Chester Volcanoes put up a good fight at home against a talented Maxwell team last Friday night, but Maxwell's big-play abilities kept the Volcanoes on their heels, and Maxwell totaled almost 500 yards on offense. Maxwell improved to 5-1 overall, while Chester moved to 3-3. No statistics from the game were made available.
