The goals for Chester started off in the first half as Paige Reed dropped a pair into the net for a 2-0 lead.

Although Quincy took a number of shots in the second half, the Vols held the saves and put up two more goals in the half, courtesy of Alyssa Ayers and Nicole Staggs for the 4-1 victory. Chester head coach Eric O'KelIey said he was excited about the outcome of the season -- and congratulated Quincy on their play in the championship game. "My team was always ready to learn, were upbeat and positive," O'KeUey said. "Overall, it was a great experience and they worked hard all season. Quincy should also be proud of their season. We were up 2-0 at half in the championship game and they scored in opening moments to make it 2-1. It was a really good match overall and Quincy brought their best game." "From a couple of years with no wins, to a championship game, I am very proud of all of the girls because they did a fantastic job," said Quincy head coach Sarah Goard. The season is now over for both teams, with Chester's league record standing at 7-0-1. Quincy ends the season at 2-5-1 in league and 3-6-1 overall. Quincy 6, Portola 3 The Quincy Trojans fought back from a loss to Chester on Monday, Oct. 27 with a decisive 6-3 win over the Portola Tigers just two days later -- in a game that saw Quincy's archrival draw first blood and keep it very close until the second half of the match. In what was one of the highest scoringgamesfor the Trojan s aJ season, head coach Sarah Goard's squad went up 3-2 in the first half and were able to beat back the Tigers' opening gambit as Portola started up the game with a goal from the toe of Tabitha Martinez. Quincy was able to follow up just moments later with a quick drive to the net from Hagwood. The Trojans added two more in the first half, courtesy of Rachel Hanna and another from Hagwood's boot. Portola was able to get back into it near tlie break, however, as Victoria Benuto drove in for the Tiger's second score of the game. Trojan head coach Sarah Goard took special notice of Hanna's second goal of the game. "The second goal was a beautiful assist from Lydia Morgan from the goal line on the right side, straight to Rachel on the back post who volleyed it into the back of the net in the first half," Goard said. A number of Portola head coach Thomas Cormany's Tigers were sidelined for most of the season by injuries, though that didn't stop his team from getting on the pitch every week, or from taking its single win of the season, going up 5-3 against the Trojans back on Sept. 4. "What a season they had, though it was a rough season due to]njuries," Cormany said. "Almost every game we played we were playing with 10 players, one player down, so we did not get a lot of chances to sub this season. They hung in there and did their best." While Portola was able to get into the net one more time on another goal from Benuto, Quincy would put up three more drives to the net in the second half as Morgan scored two in a row and Hanna sealed the deal for the sixth goal to put the Trojans over the top for the win and a trip to Chester for the Feather River League championship. t
