S'ville rolls: Fulkerson, Ulvevadet lead Bears over Grizzlies

There was something that felt just a little bit off heading into Thursday night’s Summerville vs. Mariposa football game at Thorsted Field. Perhaps because the Bears were playing a team that had yet to play this season, and Summerville already had a win under its belt. Or it could have been because Summerville accommodated the Mariposa request to have the game played on a Thursday night so its students could participate in the Mariposa County Fair.
Whatever the reason, maybe the Bears should play more Thursday night games because Summerville (2-0) put 70 points on the board and defeated Mariposa 70-44 in an old fashioned shootout.

'Skins prep for slugfest at Escalon

It’s not very often that a football team should take advice from pop singer Taylor Swift. But, after a 74-26 loss to division I McNair last Friday at Frank Meyer Field, the Calaveras Redskins just need to shake it off.
The Redskins got beat by a team from Stockton that is much bigger, faster, and threw things at them that they will not see the rest of the year. There is no other way to put it, McNair had too much firepower for the ‘Skins to handle.   
“We are always telling the kids that the season is a marathon and not a sprint,” said Calaveras head coach Jason Weatherby. “It’s whoever is the best last that wins the prize. So, we work on trying to keep them healthy and trying to keep their attitudes positive. With a loss like that, you just have to let it go.”

’Frogs open vs. Warriors

The Bret Harte High School Bullfrogs were huddled on a baseball field adjacent to Dorroh Field after completing tackling drills Wednesday before Friday’s season opener vs. Orestimba.
“Give me one,” shouted assistant coach Shawn Westberg.
The squad, in unison, clapped once.
“Give me three,” Westberg retorted.
Clap, clap, clap, the team responded.
“Hit,” Westberg proclaimed.
Hit, hit, hit, hit, the collective began chanting.

The Sonora Wildcats went into their huddle Wednesday at the end of football practice with a lot of loud emotion, and then broke that huddle with the same enthusiasm.
It looked and sounded a lot like last year’s Wildcat team that reached the Sac-Joaquin Section division IV championship game.
After a disappointing loss last Friday at Oakdale, the Wildcats are eager to go out and earn their first victory tonight at Lodi.
“Practice was exceptional,” said Wildcat senior and co-captain Wyatt Faughnan. “We’re getting that high energy back that we had last year. This week in total has been a lot better than last week. I think last week was a hard lesson, a wake up call, to really start working hard.”

Preps roundup: Soccer Cats shutout Bruins

Tyler Bergthold scored scored both Sonora goals Tuesday to lead the Wildcats over the Riverbank Bruins 2-0 at Dunlavy Field.
Bergthold’s first goal, the game winner, came on a great individual effort in the first half.
While defending a Riverbank defender near midfield, Bergthold cut off a passing lane by jabbing his foot out just far enough to intercept an attempted pass. The senior then got into a one-on-one with the Bruin goalie and chipped it past for the lead.

Bears start slow vs. Modesto, but end fas

Read more... The Summerville Bears Cinderella run of 2014, which ended with a Sac-Joaquin Section Division VI championship, is now officially a thing of the past. On Tuesday night, the Bears looked to start 2015 the same way they ended 2014 — win a win in front of a pumped and excited crowd. They started strong and had a valiant second half effort, but could not overcome a 6-0 deficit and lost 7-4 to the Modesto Panthers at Thorsted Field.
