Quincy 15, Chester 6

Quincy managed to overcome a strong defensive push by Chester last Friday night as the Trojans racked up a 15-6 win over the Volcanoes at FRC stadium.

As heavy rains fell, the Trojans’ home turf became as slick as oil in some places and saw kickers from both teams slipping and sliding on point-after and field goal attempts.

It took a double overtime push by the Mt. Shasta Bears boys’ soccer team to defeat the Quincy Trojans on a 2-1 final score in the CIF Northern Section semifinals match Thursday, Oct. 30.

The Trojans, fresh off a 4-1 win over Fall River just two days earlier, led the Bears 1-0 throughout the first half thanks to a solid penalty kick from Che Rubalcava-Cunan. After that, the defensive posture of Quincy shifted to Brady Rick at keeper.

Over the course of the 100-minute game, Rick managed to pencil in seven saves on 13 shots taken by the Bears — and his skill at the net only faltered once, in the 71st minute when Mt. Shasta’s Jarrod Althaus-Cressman managed to get one into the back of the net for the tie.

From the Sports Desk; And the wait begins: hurry up, spring baseball

In the history of Major League Baseball only 38 World Series winners have been determined by a Game 7 — and this year’s world champion San Francisco Giants had been there before, courtesy of a heartbreaking 2002 Series in which the Anaheim Angels drubbed them and took the Commissioner’s Trophy with a 6-1 win.

Luckily for the 2014 Giants organization, they had Series MVP Madison Bumgarner on the mound as closer after two days rest from his four-hit shutout in Game 5.

With a six-game winning streak under its belt, the Greenville Lady Indians volleyball team (7-13, 4-1) has been resurgent and kept its winning ways going last Tuesday night with a 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 25-7) win over CORE Butte Charter School of Chico.

The Indians had managed, over the course of the past month and until their game with Westwood, to only allow opponents wins in four sets — and have managed to log a statistical record of 5.1 kills per set, put up 69 total blocks, hit for 169 service aces and average three aces per set.

The defense of the CORE Lynxes was so lacking during the game that Greenville’s normally high dig rate was tamped down a bit, with senior Nikole Machado earning four and fellow senior Brook House and sophomore Valerie Peter fighting for two apiece. Senior Trinity Lincoln was a firecracker on the stops for Greenville as well, with a pair of solo blocks to her credit.
