It was a bad day for the majority of Plumas County’s football teams Sept. 13, as Portola, Quincy and Greenville all lost their games. Portola was trampled by Pershing County, last year’s Nevada state champions.
Quincy was up the majority of its game, but lost in the final minutes of the game to Fall River. Greenville suffered a brutal defeat by Dunsmuir.
Pershing County 36, Portola 0
The Pershing County Mustangs proved their dominance right off the bat. The Mustangs made a long drive that took up the majority of the first quarter to score a touchdown and two-point conversion and take an 8-0 lead.
