Volleyball

Colusa wins Carmichael Invitational Volleyball Small Schools Tournament
After sweeping Pierce on the road on Thursday in their Sacramento Valley League opener, the Lady RedHawks traveled to Carmichael over the weekend and dominated, winning each of their seven matches as they cruised to a win against Colfax in the tournament championship, and moved their overall record to 29-3.

In pool play, Colusa beat Liberty Ranch by scores of 26-25 and 25-21, Contra Costa Christian by scores of 25-10 and 25-7, and Mesa Verde by scores of 25-7 and 25-9.

They followed that by beating West Valley 2-1 (25-22, 21-25, and 15-5) in the quarterfinal, and then sweeping Mercy in the semi-final (25-23, 25-21), and Colfax in the championship game (28-26, 25-20).

Colusa hosts Willows (15-9, 2-0 SVL) on Thursday at 6 PM.

Hamilton 3, Williams 0 – The Lady ‘Jackets were hoping to end a six-game skid at home on Thursday, but were swept by the visiting Braves by scores of 25-13, 25-20, and 25-8. Williams (6-9, 0-1 MVL) hosted Durham (10-10, 1-0 MVL) in a Mid-Valley League match on Tuesday night, and hosts East Nicolaus (5-6, 0-1 MVL) on Thursday at 6:30 PM.
Quincy 3, Maxwell 0 – The visiting Trojans trounced the Panthers in three games on

Thursday, winning by scores of 25-11, 25-13, and 25-14.

Maxwell (4-10, 0-2) looked to bounce back on the road and capture their first league win against Mountain Valley League opponent Esparto (0-6, 0-1) last night, and host CORE Butte at 6:30 PM on Thursday.

Portola 3, Maxwell 0 – Maxwell opened their league schedule with a match at home against Portola, and fell to the Tigers in three sets. Portola won by scores of 25-11, 25-18, and 25-20.

Football

Williams 50, St. Vincent De Paul 0 – Traveling to play St. Vincent De Paul in Petaluma for a Saturday match-up – a rarity for Colusa County prep football teams – the Yellowjackets offense topped 50 points for the second straight week behind a nearly flawless performance from Hunter Povlsen. The senior quarterback torched the Mustangs, completing 10-of-12 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns through the air. Eight of those completions went to receivers Juan Zamudio and Aldo Ambriz – who each caught four passes. Zamudio finished with 147 yards receiving and a score, Ambriz with 141 yards and three touchdowns. Ambriz added 26 yards and a score on four carries. Most of the damage was done by the intermission, as Williams held a commanding 43-0 lead at the half. Backup quarterback Guillermo Hernandez also had a rushing touchdown.

It wasn’t just about offense: the Yellowjackets’ defense earned their first shutout of the year, holding the Mustangs to just 117 yards of total offense.

Williams (3-2) has a bye this week, and opens their Mid-Valley League schedule against Mt. Shasta on Oct. 5.

Etna 26, Maxwell 20 – Despite solid nights from Tony Ambriz and Rudy Gutierrez on both sides of the ball, the Panthers fell to the Lions on the road last week. Gutierrez rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, and led the Panthers defense with 11 tackles, while Ambriz hauled in five passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns, and an interception on defense – but it wasn’t enough to earn Maxwell their first league win of the season.

Maxwell (2-3, 0-3 CVL) will have another chance to do just that against Portola (2-3, 1-2 CVL) in a Cascade Valley League tilt on Friday – which is also Homecoming Night for the Panthers.
