For the second time in as many weeks, a boys’ basketball game in Plumas County would determine a league leader — and see just one team remain undefeated against conference opponents.

Such was the case as the Chester Volcanoes hosted Liberty Christian on Tuesday, Feb. 3. Both teams came into the game at 3-0 in Five-Star League action, though the Vols would ultimately prevail against the Patriots on a 62-55 final score.

The game was not entirely smooth sailing for Chester; head coach Jake Simms’ squad squandered a 10-point lead in the first half by letting the Patriot offense climb out of the hole to take a 47-45 lead at the end of the third period. Senior Wyatt Durkin, the eventual lead scorer for the Vols with 22, was held to only seven in the first 16 minutes, though fellow senior Eddy Perez carried the water, earning 10 of his 14 points in the opening half.

Why is it legal to buy deer chow but not use it to feed deer?

Question: I was at my local feed store today and was astounded to find bags of Purina Deer Chow for sale, and another feed for wild pigs. I know it is illegal in California to feed big game animals, including deer, bear, elk, wild pigs and pronghorn. So why is it OK to sell deer food? I asked the proprietor and they said that it was not illegal to sell the food and that their customers wanted the product. Isn’t this a little bit like saying it is OK to sell drugs, even if it is illegal to use them? What is the rationale for allowing the sale of a product when its use is banned?

With the Quincy-Portola showdown already out of the way, ending in a win for the Trojans, a second act of cross-county drama unfolded last week as Greenville traveled north to face Chester on Jan. 29 — for a game that saw the Volcanoes lead by 16 points at one stage in the game — and then have to deal with a comeback led by Indian co-captain Walkers Meyers that set up an overtime showdown.

The Vols were dominant in the first half, with senior Wyatt Durkin carrying Chester’s water by earning 26 points off eight baskets and a trio of deep three-pointers. In addition, the Vols defense was more than effective in the first 16 minutes, holding the Indians to just nine points in the first period and 15 points in the second. Add a comment
