Redskins edge Bears

By GUY DOSSI

For The Union Democrat

The Calaveras Redskins football team was able to hold off a strong second half rallyfrom the Summerville Bears Friday night to earn a 50-44 homecoming win at Frank Meyer Field.  

“It feels great to get a win on homecoming because everyone from the school and the community was out here watching, and we wanted to give them a good game,” said junior Trevor Ramirez.

With the win, the Redskins move into second place in the Mother Lode League with two to play, and playoff hopes are stronger than ever.

The Redskins found the endzone quick in the first quarter, in just three plays. Running back Connor Hamilton busted up the middle for a 28-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead after James Harkins added the PAT.

Calaveras got the ball back almost as quick as Kirk Overley made an interception on the Redskins 30.

Hamilton got the ball into Bears territory on a strong 15-yard run, and Ramirez took the ball to the Bears 14 on a 15-yard pass from quarterback Dylan Byrd. Hamilton scored his second touchdown of the game with 5:17 remaining in the first quarter on a 9-yard run for 14-0 lead.

“Everything in the first quarter was just executed perfectly,” Hamilton said.  “Everyone blocked the correct guy and everyone did their job. I’m pretty sure we couldn’t have had a better first quarter  on offense.”


Summerville can’t overcome early deficit vs. Calaveras

Down by 50-20 early in the third quarter, the Summerville Bears football team could have simply folded, called it a night and coasted into its bye week with a blowout loss on its record.

But Summerville, who has displayed the determination, heart and never-say-die attitude for much of this season, battled back despite facing an uphill climb.

Summerville outscored Calaveras 24-8 in the second half, but fell 50-44 on Friday at Frank Meyer Field in San Andreas.

“It was nice we were able to keep fighting,” Summerville head coach Ben Watson said. “The kids never gave up. That’s the positive. I really felt in the second half, we were coming back. We were not giving up no matter what the score was. We were not going to play to the scoreboard. We’re just going to play and play, and play and play. If it works out well — fine — if it doesn’t, either way, we were going to play as hard as we can and look at the scoreboard at the end of the game.”
