The last time Portola and Etna met was in 1993, when the Tigers won, 14-12. In Portola's win last Friday night over East Nicolaus, the Tigers forced four turnovers and capitalized on three of them with touchdowns. Por- tola never turned the ball over. "The fact that we didn't have any turnovers was ma- jor," said Bass. This was Portola's third straight win over East Nieo- laus, including a 28-7 victory in last year's championship game. Last Friday night's contest began poorly for the Tigers, when East Nicolaus returned the game's opening kickoff for an 80-yard touchdown. Portola's Chris Mah received a concussion on the play, and was out for the remainder of the game. Already down to 13 play- ers, Portola then lost its quar- terback, Jeremiah Mar- quette, when he injured his knee while returning an in- terception on defense. This forced Joe Thomas to take over as quarterback; he had played the position in Pop Warner football, but hadn't taken snaps since. Nevertheless, he completed two of five passes for 18 yards and one touchdown. Of course, Thomas was most lethal while running the ball, totaling 189 yards on ,31 carries and scoring two touchdowns and two 2-point conversions. Chris Wirta had a breakout game, earning 126 yards on 17 carries with one touchdown.
