Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 3C Indians stun Loyalton, 28-27 Greg Knight Sports writer sports@plumasnews.com Fans of Greenville football won't have to travel farther than around the loop of Indian Valley this weekend for some playoff action after the Squad squeezed off a stunning 28-27 win over Loyalton on Saturday, Nov. 1. The game came down, essentially, to a missed point-after kick by Loyalton, which in the end put them down by a single point at the end of the game. Although th@ scored four times, the Grizzlies allowed the 28 points scored by the Indians on two touchdowns by Walker Meyer and Darian Potts in the first half, along with another two Walker trots to the end zone in the second. "It was a really stunning outcome," head coach Justin Allan said. "We held on to the end and Walker's touchdowns made the difference for us." The victory gives the Indians a 4-2 record in the California-South League and a 6-4 overall record. Heavily favored to win, the Grizzlies came into the game with a 4-1 league record and, before being handed only their second loss of the season, were ranked No. 2 in the conference. With a Loyalton victory, the Indians would have faced Redding Christian. Instead, the Indians will match up with the Big Valley Cardinals on Friday in Bieber. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. The Cardinals have a league record of 5-1 and a 7-1 overall tally on the season. Greenville's offensive machine, Walker Meyers (No. 38) fights past the Loyalton defense last Saturday on the road. The Indians won the game 28-27 and will face Big Valley of Bieber on Friday in the first round of playoffs.

As heavy rains fell, the Trojans' home turf became as slick as oil in some places and saw kickers from both teams slipping and sliding on point-after and field goal attempts. The heavy downpour didn't hamper Chester, at first, as the Vols drew first blood on a rushing touchdown by Brett Perry. With a botched PAT, those six points were the last Chester would see all night. Quincy was Emally able to get on the board in the first quarter after a safety by senior Bram DeMartile put up a pair of points for the Trojans. Just prior to the halftime break, Quincy's Tyler Hartline took a 25-yard rush into the end zone for a 9-6 lead. The story of the night, offensively speaking, was Quincy quarterback Matt Beeson; in a fourth-down-and-10 situation at the Chester 10 yard line, the pistol for the Trojans called a keeper play and fought to break three tackles before he managed to get the ball just across the plane of the goal line. "(Beeson's) body never really got into the end zone," said Quincy head coach Tom Goss. "He just broke those tackles and managed to break the plane before they pushed him back." The win snaps a two-game skid and ups Quincy's league record to 3-3 and the overall record to 4-5. Chester's record in league play dropped to 1-3 and 4-5 overall. Esparto 52, Portola 14 Despite leading 14-8 in the first quarter against Esparto at home on Friday night, the Portola Tigers were shut out of the remainder of the game as the Spartans put up double digits in each of the three remaining quarters to win the league match, 52-14. The Tigers, now with a league record of 0-4 and 2-6 overall, will travel to Chester this Friday night. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m, 2-6 record overall and a seat in the basement of Golden Valley Conference standings. The Golden Eagles came out looking strong in the first half as receiver Dana Day took a 56-yard pass from quarterback Ja'Quay Garmon into the end zone, minus a missed two-point-after attempt, to nearly tie it up 7-6. After a run of 31 mole points scored by COS, the Feather River offense did not final the will to score again until 7:43 left in the half as Nigel Dillard rumbled in froml yard out for a TD. Trailing 38-14 at the half, Garmon came out re-energized and on a six-play, 76-yard drive was able to find Day again on a 22-yard pass play for the score. A two-point conversion pass to Nigel Dillard was also good, leaving the Golden Eagles trailing, 38-22. While COS would go on to score three more times in the game, Feather River was able to get two more TDs; a 1-yard run by Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, native Josh McClam, combined with a two-point conversion by Day, followed by a fumble recovery at the.COS goal line by William Burwell, of Toledo, Ohio, which gave FRC two more scores, though not enough for the win against Siskiyous. Garmon's performance was respectable, with an 18-for-41 showing and 252 yards in the air. Dillard led all rushers with 13 attempts for 42 yards, while Andrew Gamble put up 100 yards as a receiver on six carries. Nate Stroshine led the defensive push with 10 tackles and a sack. William Wright also had a sack in the game. The Golden Eagles will head to Sacramento City College this Saturday, with kickoffset for 1 p.m. The Panthers come into the game with a 2-1 record in the GVC and a 5-3 record overall. VOLLEYBALL, from page lC started playing with more discipline and focus -- and jumped out to big lead. "(We were up) then and it was their turn to fight to get back in it, but we were able to finish them off," Hyink added. The last two games were both close early on before Quincy was able to pull away a little toward the end, winning both 25-point sets and securing the league title. The most recent Quincy title was a co-championship in 2009. "Going into last night we knew it was a pretty big game not just because of the competitive rivalry between the two schools, but it also could effect Mid-Valley League standings and playoff seeding," Hyink said after the game. "A win would give us the league championship because we would have a two-game lead with one game to play, a loss would've put us as co-champions with Portola if we were able to win our final game of the season." The night started with an intense junior varsity match as Portola's JV team was in the same position as Quincy: a win would give the Trojans the league title, a loss meant a shared MVL JV championship with a win on Tuesday. The Quincy JV took the first game and Portola won the second, making for an exciting third game, which Quincy was able to capture. "I thought we had a good all-around team effort and I feel like we have a lot of athletes who have different talents," Hyink said. "I think our success starts with our four seniors: Angel Garrish, Sammi Keely, Lynda Nolan and Jasmin Sherman. When they are focused and ready to go, we're toUgh to beat." With the league win in hand, Quincy is the second seed in Division V of the Northern Section. Portola is the No. 8 seed. Greenville, a member of Division VI, is seeded in the No. 7 spot and has a league record of 5-1, with a record of 8-14 overall. The sectional seeding meeting for playoff berths will take place tomorrow in Chico.

The shots on goal were remarkably low for Quincy in the match with Schwartz and Che combining for only a trio of attempts. "Erik played a fantastic game, first as defender, then as a mid-fielder late in the game," Dillingham said, "He produced a few opportunities throughout the game, first with long, full-field runs, then later with good passing with Che Rubalcava-Cunan. Che and Dale Morgan were also standouts this game, with tremendous work throughout the 100 minutes of play." The loss ends the season for the Trojans. In conference and section play, Quincy finished in the No. 2 spot on a 6-1-1 record in Feather River League action while putting together a 15-4-1 season overall for a No. 60 ranking in the state. Quincy 4, Fall River 1 The Quincy Trojans boys' soccer team was able to dissemble the Fall River Bulldogs in the first round of CIF Northern Section playoffs, battling to a 4-1 win at home. After coming out relatively flat in the first half-hour of the opening half, head coach Colin Dillingham pushed his players to follow a simple bit of advice --get to the corner. Once they did, it was magic for the Trojans. "We came out really, really weak in the first 30 minutes," Dillingham said. "The turnaround finally happened when we took the ball to the corner like I have been trying to get these players to do all week." The payoff of following Dlllingham's advice came in the form of senior Dale Morgan going on the attack for the Trojans' first goal in the 28th minute. Morgan was also named Dillingham's player of the game. "(Morgan) held the back line together today, and communicated well with his Miles Rubalcava-Cunan (No. 1) did his best to make a header into the net against Fall River off a corner kick by his brother, Che Rubalcava-Cunan. The shot was close and only stymied by the Bulldogs' keeper at the last second. Photo by Greg Knight back line," Dillingham said. "He made a very long run in the second half for the fourth goal of the game, passed the ball to Che, continued his run and received the ball back from Che and continued on to score into the side of the net." The next three goals for Quincy came, in order, on a perfect cross from junior D.J. Davis in the 30th minute to Erik Schwartz, who finished with a perfect header. Miles Rubalcava-Cunan came next with a well-controlled push and dropped the ball back to his brother, Che Rubalcava-Cunan, who finished the second goal of the first half. Later, Davis passed to Che, who passed to Miles for the final score of the game. Morgan led the team in steals with six takeaways. Wyatt Hollister had three steals in the game. Both Rubalcava-Cunans had assists, with Che logging two and Miles adding one. Davis also had a pair of assists in the game. After the game, Morgan said he saw the scoring opportunities open up for the Trojans after he and his fellow players backed off the tighter-than-usual play Quincy was advancing before their first goal. "In the second half I really tried to play back more and create better angles to open up more space for the mid-fielders," Morgan said. "After that, we were able to move the ball up from there into scoring position." Trojan keeper Brady Rick had four saves in the game, with the only goal against coming late in the second half off an unassisted drive by Fall River.
