Both Greenville (4-2) and Chester (5-0) celebrated last Friday after stomping their opponents. Greenville hosted Westwood to win its annual rivalry game by a whopping 66-0. Chester traveled to Colusa and remained undefeated by winning 48-7.
Greenville 66, Westwood 0
The Indians’ fans were delighted as Greenville scored touchdown after touchdown while shutting down every attempt by Westwood. Westwood was defenseless as Greenville made multiple big plays to win the game.
“I challenged my players to play a flawless game — to not make any mistakes,” said Greenville coach Justin Allan. “Everyone played really well. The backup came out and played great.”
Greenville started its domination early on, in its first offensive play of the game. Cooper Kingdon passed the ball to Walker Meyers who ran it into the end zone for a 42-yard touchdown reception.
In all, Kingdon was responsible for six touchdowns. Kingdon’s completed passes yielded 182 yards, three touchdowns and one touchdown off a carry. Midway through the game, Kingdon switched to receiving and gained 92 yards and two touchdowns.
Once Greenville was secure in its lead, Darian Potts, the Indians’ second-string quarterback, took over for Kingdon. Potts completed two passes for two touchdowns.
Logan Carmichael led the Indians in rushing with 112 yards off four carries. Carmichael ran the ball in for a 46-yard touchdown and a 56-yard touchdown. Carmichael also made a 51-yard touchdown reception.
James Martinez made a 56-yard touchdown run and rushed 83 yards total during the game. Jacob Henry caught a 37-yard pass for a touchdown.
A.J. Courtright led the defense with nine tackles. Henry and Chance Deal were right in the mix as well with eight tackles each.
Greenville plays its homecoming game Friday against Princeton. The game starts at 7 p.m.
Chester 48, Colusa 7
Chester proved once again it is the team aimed at the division championship as it defeated Colusa without much of a fight Oct. 4. Chester remains undefeated with a 5-0 record this season.
Chester moved up to the No. 1 spot in the Northern Section California Interscholastic Federation’s Division IV standings.
Chester threw the ball only twice and relied heavily on its running game. In total, the Volcanoes rushed for 404 yards.
Hunter Morris had 12 carries for 167 yards including three touchdown runs. Jeremiah White had 21 carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns. David Estacio rushed for 77 yards and Eddie Perez for 47.
Trevor Roberts dominated Chester’s defense. At one point, Roberts stripped the ball from a Colusa runner and ran it back 46 yards for a touchdown.
This Friday, Chester will hold its homecoming celebrations. The Volcanoes will host Biggs at 7:30 p.m. Biggs is also currently undefeated and sits in the second spot of the division’s standings.
