Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014 lC SPORTS AND l00L_ 00CREATION INSIDE SECTION C: FEATURING THE ACTION AROUND PLUMAs COUN Butte smashes FRC at home Greg Knight Sports Writer For the second time in two days, Saturday, Oct. 18, a Plumas County football team was defeated in the idyllic environs of Feather River College stadium in Quincy -- with the FRC Golden Eagles taking a 65-9 nosedive against the Butte Roadrunners. Just hours before, Friday night, the collegiate stadium had been the site of a 48-8 drubbing of the Quincy Trojans by the Maxwell Panthers. Quincy was able to finally find the end zone on the opening play of the fourth quarter in that game and it would play out in a similar fashion for FRC when it came to the Golden Eagles' only touchdown of the day. Starting out under sunny skies and with a gentle breeze blowing, the Roadrunners broke out to a very early 27-0 lead off four rushing TDs from deep in the FRC red zone. It wasn't until late in the second that the Eagles were able to get on the board, courtesy of a fumble by Butte that was recovered by the Roadrunners in their own end zone for a two-point safety. Just like Quincy High School had done the night before, scoring at the opening of the fourth quarter, FRC was the lucky recipient of a third quarter Butte fumble that turned into a one-play Feather River touchdown on a 44-yard rusher by freshman running back Tonio Burton. Still trailing by a score of 34-9, FRC threw its entire playbook at the Roadrunners, only to be deflated as Butte ran up another 21.points in the third and tacked on 10 more points in the fourth for good measure and the 65-9 final score. After the game, head coach Bart Andrus said a shortage of position players on this season's team was one of the reasons behind the loss, though he feels that as the season goes forward with four games remaining, he can work with the individuals he has on the team and focus on recruiting efforts for next year. "First of all, we were outmanned," Andrus said. "In any game, anywhere, it's about your players versus their players and we didn't have a lot of depth. We came in with six offensive linemen and three defensive linemen, so we're down a few guys and had barely enough to make it .... This is nothing that can't be fixed with recruiting, though. Our problem is numbers right now." Starting quarterback Ja'Quay Garmon, a. sophomore from South Fulton, Tennessee. said his team would take the loss, learn from it and prepare for next week's road battle against No. 3 ranked American River in Elk Grove. "I feel like going into this week's practices we have to be more focused and lock in on the fact that the season is see Football, page 5C Feather River College sophomore quarterback Ja'Quay Garmon (No. 2) feels the pressure from Butte College defensive back Damariay Drew (No. 27) on Saturday afternoon. The Roadrunners crushed the Golden Eagles 65-9 in the game. Photo by Greg Knight FRC downs two league opponents to open season Greg Knight Sports Writer The Lady Golden Eagles volleyball team (14-1, 3-0) opened its season at home last week against College of the Siskiyous (9-10, 1-2) and rolled past the Eagles on set scores of 25-14, 25-15 and 25-12 for a 3-0 fmal tally. During the game it was no surprise that sophomore Marinda Thomas was on fire. In her three sets she racked up 12.5 points from a total of 11 kills on 16 attempts and added a service ace and 10 digs. Thomas wasn't alone in total attempts, either. Three other starters, Alanna Watt (15), Stephanie Ovitz (14) and Abbie Mikelson (12), each found their way to double digits in the score book. Sophomore libero Nina Holmes, an all-American and 2013 Golden Valley Conferene MVP selection, was the queen of defense, however, with 15 digs in the game. When asked after the game -why she believed FRC volleyball would dominate this year, Holmes said it was all about vision and a cohesive team. "I think we have really great team chemistry and we have set in our mind one goal with understanding and commitment to work together, reminding each :other what that goal is: we want to win," Holmes said. Offensively, Ovitz scored 10 points and logged nine kills while Watt added seven points on seven kills of her See Volleyball, page 5C Feather River College freshman Mariah Diaz (No. 4) shows some emotion along with her killer skills at the net as FRC blanked College of the Siskiyous last week.
