6C Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter FRC volleyball beats Butte Shannon Morrow Sports Editor sports@plumasnews.corn In its first conference match of the season, the Feather River College volley- ball team defeated rival Butte College on the road Oct. 8, when the Golden Ea- gles took down the defending champions 3-1. "We played great and con- trolled the match," said FRC coach Sarah Ritchie, who de- scribed the victory as a big one. Butte College has won the Golden Valley Conference the past three Seasons. "This win sets us up for a great chance to win confer- ence, which we have never done before," said Ritchie. Kim Naut led Feather Riv- er's offensive attack with 16 kills. Julia Lynch hammered down 11 kills, and Bryanna Chavez delivered 10. FRC's defense was led by Quincy graduate Katy Batchelder, with 32 digs. Another local, Natalie Ray, also had an all-around great game, said Ritchie. Kadie Miller, a setter for the Golden Eagles from Las Vegas, Nev., nailed four aces and put up 42 assists. Feather River plays two home games this week. FRC's home opener is against Shasta Wednesday, Oct. 13. Then Lassen comes to town Friday, Oct. 15. Both games begin at 6 p.m. Men's soccer overlooks Shzls000000 For only the third time this season, the Feather Riv- er College men's soccer team felt what it was like to lose a match, as they fell 2-1 to the Shasta College Knights in Redding Oct. 5. The match was atypical of the FRC men's style of play. Coach Don Williams felt that it was due to overconfidence and lack of focus in prepara- tion for the match. "I try to live by and teach the five Ps," said Williams. "Proper preparation pre- vents poor performance, be- cause the way you train is the way you play. "Our men went into the match believing that they did not need to work hard prior to the match, did not warm-up with intensity and paid the price of over- confidence." Shasta struck first in the second minute with a well- placed chip over the head of FRC keeper Anthony Wake- ford. FRC out shot Shasta 6-5 in the first half, but could not find the back of the net. In the second half, the Golden Eagles started to pull things together and scored a goal off of a long throw in to the head of Cesar Vasquez, who flicked it on to Alex Reyes. Reyes headed a rocket ball into the back of the net to tie the score 1-1 in the 60th minute. The Knights were not fin- ished and struck the match winner in the 75th minute, when FRC's second-half keeper, Jose Felipe, came out for a ball and a Shasta player placed itover his head. Although Felipe got his hand to the ball, it still set- tied into FRC's goal. "I hope our men have learned a valuable lesson to- day," said Williams. "If so, it is great to get this out of the way before playoff time rolls around. It is great to be con- fident, but overconfidence and poor preparation can lead to disaster."
