Homecoming Volcanoes prove too hot for Trojans

Volcano senior Sawyer Durkin carries the ball toward the end zone and is not letting go no matter what the odds.

The Chester Volcanoes really turned up the heat Oct. 6 for their homecoming game and burned their way right through the Quincy Trojans with a score of 22-0.

This win is the third in a row for the Vols who are 5-1 overall and 2-0 in league play.

During the homecoming game, the Volcanoes stuck together working fluidly in good form supporting each other on both the offensive and defensive teams.

The evening included many thrills for Quincy and Chester fans on the field and off. A great halftime show featured Volcano and Trojan cheer squads independently as well as an inspiring musical performance from a Chester music ensemble about freedom.

There were quite a few memorable and notable standout plays during the game.

At one point the announcer said, “Tony Rogers took the ball 11 yards for a Volcano first down and it looks like he carried three or more Trojans with him.”

The Vols play in Modoc next week and then will see if the Tigers can handle their fire on Friday, Oct. 20, in Portola at 7 p.m.

The Trojans play the Portola Tigers at Feather River College on Friday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m.

Trojan no. 24, Justyn Conston, knows where the ball is, but the Vol offense makes sure there is no way he can get to it or its carrier. Volcano no. 3, Tony Rogers, has the ball and runs straight through the Trojan defense toward the goal line.
