Volcano football burns through competition

Chester football has made a terrific beginning with three victories. They beat the Redding Christian Lions 14-6 in the season opening away game Aug. 30 then brought the winning home to Chester as they won in a close game against the Burney Raiders, 22-20.

Last Friday, Sept. 13, the Volcanoes continued their streak, as they were victorious over the McCloud Loggers, 57-0.

The Loggers came to the field with just eight players and when one was injured before halftime, the McCloud team was forced to discontinue play for the second half.

During the first half of the early 5 p.m. game, fans experienced the very best of fall conditions — warm weather and clear skies. The show on the field was spectacular to boot.

Chester’s Callum Kremer ran and ran and ran. Stats were not yet available at press time, but will be ready for next week. Quarterback Kameron Stelzriede provided consistency on the field, as did Michael Bereznak with outstanding kicks for the Volcanoes.
