Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015 7C i. Quincy's Morgan Fowler (21) goes for the spike during the Trojans" 3-2 comeback victory at Portola on Thursday, Oct. 29. Photos by Dan Dan McDonald Managing Editor dmcdonald@plumasnews.com The Portola High School volleyball team looked like it was steamrolling its way to the Mid-Valley League title 30 minutes into its match against rival Quincy last week. But then the tide turned. The Trojans, who were overwhelmed in the first two games, rallied for an improbable 3-2 victory on the Tigers' home court Quincy's win essentially assured the Trojan's and Tigers will share the MVL championship. Both teams have just one loss in league play --- and that is to each other. The Oct. 29 match in Portola felt like a playoff game. Fans for both teams were lively and the players responded with long, high-energy rallies and diving saves. Portola, led by seniors Sara Baty, Caitlin Chan, Alli Ramelli and Erin Sheridan, easily won the first two games, 25-18 and 25-12. The Lady Trojans appeared stunned as they exchanged sides to begin the third game. But although the Quincy squad looked defeated, they obviously weren't. The Trojans, led by strong net play from junior Morgan Fowler, rallied to win the final three games, 25-22, 25-18 and 15-10. "Morgan had some great blocks that got the team pumped," Quincy coach April Gott said. Gott attributed the Trojans' slow start to nerves. "As much as it looked like we were going to lose, I had all the faith in the world that we were going to come back," Gott said. Despite the comeback, the match was still up for grabs late in the final game. Portola went on a 5-0 run while Sheridan was serving to take a 10-9 lead. But that was the Tigers' final points of the game as Quincy rallied once again for the victory. No game statistics were posted prior to the newspaper's deadline. The win improved Quincy to 6-1 in the MVL and 14-7 overall. Portola dropped to 5-1 and 17-14. Portola has to more league games before the section tournament begins. The Tigers faced Esparto yesterday, Nov. 3, and host Biggs tonight. Quincy's final league match was at Biggs yesterday.

I falls rOUS The Feather River College football team was overwhelmed by College of the Siskiyous last Saturday, falling 63-28. Siskiyous (4-4) overcame the Golden Eagles with a strong second quarter that left FRC trailing for the remainder of the game. The loss dropped FRC's overall record to 1-7 and 0-3 in conference play. The two teams seemed fairly even at the get-go. Siskiyous made its way into the end zone first, but FRC quickly retaliated with a 30-yard touchdown reception by Carlton Stamp to tie the score. After that touchdown, however, Siskiyous went on a scoring spree the Eagles were not able to recover from. After a field goal late in the first quarter, Siskiyous went on to score four touchdowns and nab a safety before halftime. Siskiyous then started the third quarter off with a 97-yard kickoff return to leave FRC trailing, 47-7. At this point, the Eagles were too far behind to recover, but continued on and scored three more touchdowns. Deandre Andrus scored two of those - one off a 3-yard run, the other off a 6-yard run. Ulysses Cannon scored the other, receiving a 6-yard TD pass. The Golden Eagles will travel to Sacramento this Saturday, then host Sierra College on Nov. 14 to finish out their season. 2015 Income Limits For Low Income Energy Assistance A qualified household must have a gross annual income at or below amount as shown below.
