Wildcats could play at home in playoffs

Another delay in Measure J bond construction has likely brought more good fortune for the Sonora Wildcat football team.

Hosting in the playoffs wasn’t going to be an option this season until a lawsuit filed against the Sonora Union High School District in early October stalled construction that was set to begin in early November.

The first hearing is set for Feb. 17. The $23 million bond was approved by voters in 2012.

The Mother Lode League volleyball champion Sonora Wildcats swept Argonaut 3-0 (25-9, 25-14, 25-14) on Tuesday night in Jackson.

Sonora served for 10 aces including three from Makenzee Hope who had a team-high three on 21 service attempts. The Cats also got two aces from freshman Riley Patterson, and one each from Leah Dambacher, Kiana Pisula, Shannon Friend, Angela Gardella and Maddison Stevens.

Patterson added a game-high 13 kills and also made seven digs. Bailey Henington made a 22 digs and Hope added 12. Pisula set up 22 assists and Bella Bergamaschi had 15. Friend added seven kills and Gardella had six.

“It was a nice team win and a great opportunity to have everyone contribute,” said Wildcat head coach Kim Evans. “Argonaut made some great digs and tried to keep the rallies going but with our experienced players we were able to control the tempo of the match.”

Ex-Bear Roberson ties Mary TD record

Former Summerville Bear star quarterback Zach Roberson had a performance to remember Saturday for the University of Mary in North Dakota.

Roberson, making his first appearance after missing six games because of an injury, tied a school record with six touchdown passes in a 52-45 win over MSU Moorhead. He also scored on a 3-yard run.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound, junior signal-caller threw for 460 yards, just 13 shy of another school record. He completed 27 passes and had touchdown throws of 7, 40, 34, 7, 25 and 45.

Cats grab share of MLL title

There was no big party post game Friday night. No raucous celebration or chants of “M-L-L, M-L-L” for clinching a share of the Mother Lode League football title. 

No, the Sonora Wildcats expected to here. Clinching a share of the league title on senior night is just a step toward their larger goal.

“We came into this league expecting to do this,” said Wildcat senior defensive back Carter Denton. “We knew if we executed the way we should, we would do it and here we are.”

“We haven’t really been thinking about that,” said Wildcat head coach Bryan Craig of winning the MLL title. “Our job is to go into playoffs, and then go deep into the playoffs, that’s what we’re focused on.”

Redskins edge Bears


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.”
