It was a good day for Quincy’s soccer program Sept. 27. The Trojans held their annual homecoming games with the girls’ team taking on North Tahoe for a 2-0 win and the boys taking down Portola 7-2.

The girls’ team started the homecoming events, winning its first game since the August Fest Tournament a month earlier. Rachel Hanna and Lydia Morgan were the two scorers for Quincy’s girls.

“The whole team really worked together and played their best game yet,” commented Quincy coach Sarah Goard. “I am incredibly proud of them.”

Quincy and Portola’s boys were up next, with the Trojans shutting Portola out in the first half to get the ball rolling.

In its home opener, Portola’s varsity football team racked up points in the first half, and kept its lead through the second for a 46-20 win against the Weed Cougars. The win brought Portola’s record up to 2-1.

“I thought we improved from the previous week in many areas,” said Portola coach Steve Heskett. “The offensive line played very well, and (quarterback) Evan Leal had a huge game because of their efforts.”

“The real heroes of the game were the kids from Weed who made a 10-hour round-trip bus ride after the devastating week they had,” Heskett added.

Surface water temperatures continue to decline into the mid to high 60-degree range. Fish are feeding more actively as the water cools.

Trout are in the colder water but starting to scatter as the lake cools. Feeding trout are increasingly focusing on pond smelt.

Question: I have a house on 5 acres in Northern California and have some really nice bucks on my land. Every day they come within a few feet of my house and graze on my garden and plants. If I purchase an A zone tag this year, can I legally shoot a deer on my land from my house or porch? My house is situated more than 200 yards from any other property or house and it is outside of the city limits. Thanks.

LACC Women’s Golf

The President’s Choice for Kathy Roseler’s last game as President of our Lake Almanor Women’s Golf was labeled “Disaster Golf”, a crazy accounting of everything that can go wrong in golf. Players had to keep track of every time a drive from the tee box landed in the rough; each ball that went into the sand; an extra ding for not getting out of the sand on the first try; any three-putts or worse; any four-putts; any out-of-bounds balls—I’m sure you get the idea.
