Wildcats steamroll Mustangs in MLL opener

Argo - did - naut. Argo - could - naut. And in the end, Sonora made any effort from Argo - all for - naut.

The Argonaut offense did not gain many yards or score any points Friday night against Sonora, and its defense could not stop the Wildcats from racking up both.

The Wildcats dominated from start to finish their first game in the Mother Lode League thumping the Mustangs 49-0 at Dunlavy Field.

“We played really tough tonight,” said Wildcat center Matt Konklin. “It was definitely good to start off league with a win like this. It sends a message to the rest of the schools. But everybody, everybody played great tonight. We came out pumped, fired up, firing off the ball. It was so much fun on the sideline, everybody cheering on everybody and seeing everybody get to play.”

“We came out and showed them what we had and started off the Mother Lode League season really strong,” said Wildcat slotback Jayden Estrada. “And we showed everybody else we’re coming and we’re ready to go.”


Big Game streak alive: Hamilton, Redskins run past Bullfrogs

For The Union Democrat

For the first time this season, the Calaveras Redskins played like a team who is the defending Mother Lode League champion.  

Led by Connor Hamilton’s 230 rushing yards and four scores, the Redskins defeated their cross-county rivals Bret Harte 42-7 Friday night at Dorroh Field.  

With the victory, Calaveras extends its winning-streak in The Big Game to 15 years.

“It feels good knowing that we were able to keep the streak alive, but if feels even better to finally get that first win,” senior TJ Crenshaw said.

 


Summerville again plays down to the wire, falls at Amador

SUTTER CREEK — For the fourth consecutive week, the Summerville Bears football game was decided in the final minute.

Facing a fourth-and-23 with 36 seconds left in regulation at the Amador 27, Bears quarterback Bryce Farrell looked off a safety to his left before heaving a deep throw to receiver JT McCready down the right sideline.

But the prayer fell incomplete in the end zone and Summerville lost 21-14 to Amador on Friday in both teams’ Mother Lode League opener.

“We didn’t execute well all night on offense,” Summerville head coach Ben Watson said. “We were very hit and miss. Very inconsistent. I have to give Amador credit. They played us tough, but it wasn’t like we didn’t have guys in the right spots. We just didn’t play well. We got outplayed, and that’s frustrating when you come into a place (like this) and you’re outplayed.”


Preps Roundup: Land sets Cat mark at Stanford

Cassi Land has only been a member of the Sonora Wildcats girls cross country team for a little over two months, but the freshman sensation is already setting new marks for the program.

Land placed third out of 52 in the Division III girls race on Saturday at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto.

Her time of 18 minutes and 12 seconds established a new Wildcats record on the Stanford course.

Victoria French came in at 54th (20:23) and Kaarina Thompson was 114th (22:10).

“Cassi dropped 30 seconds,” said Wildcats head coach Glenn Bass. “Victoria lost 21 seconds and Kaarina came up with a fantastic 45 second improvement. I was very impressed with the strong finish.”

Before Thursday’s soccer match against cross-county rival Sonora, Summerville assistant coach Shad Flores handed out a small note with three inspirational quotes to every Bears player.

One by legendary NFL head coach Vince Lombardi read: “The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.”

The other by the Alabama Crimson Tide’s football coach Nick Saban said: “Think about being successful in your position, not on winning. Assume the player you will be playing against is great and motivate yourself to play your hardest.”

And the final phrase belonged to Penn State’s James Franklin: “Focus on the things you can control.”

With those three motivators entrenched and instilled in the minds of the Summerville players, the Bears topped the Wildcats 4-2 in a showdown of Mother Lode League unbeatens at Dunlavy Field.
