Last week’s boys’ basketball game between Chester and Lassen promised to be good, so two sports editors showed up to cover the same match.
With me there supporting Chester, and Susanville’s Kayleen Taylor there rooting for Lassen, we stood under opposite baskets, taking photos and notes of our respective teams as they battled it out.
Prior to the match we gave one another some good-natured ribbing, each confident that our team was going to win.
With Chester leading by nine points at halftime, I began to rub it in. Taylor wasn’t fazed and continued to back her Grizzlies.
Once the final buzzer sounded and Chester was victorious, I did my best not to gloat. I offered condolences to Taylor, to which she responded with harsh words.
Got to love her competitiveness, but I was glad to be on the winning side. Better luck next time Kayleen!
