Braves fall to Maxwell 14-6
Modoc’s Braves fell victim to Maxwell 14-6 Friday night, there, knocking them out of the North section Playoffs. In the other semi-final game, Etna upset Fall River 20-0 in McArthur.
Etna and Maxwell played for the title Wednesday night.
Wood was hoping for another shot at Fall River this year, but the Bulldogs also fell short, so that highly anticipated meeting did not happen. Last week Wood said that Etna was playing better and felt they could upset the Bulldogs.
Modoc favored in wrestling loop
Modoc’s wrestling team enters into the 2014-15 season as the preemptive Shasta Cascade League and section favorite in section small schools.
The Braves open the season Dec. 5-6 at the tough Chester tournament and host the huge Modoc North East Classic tournament here Dec. 12-13. The Modoc tournament is attracting some of the major wrestling schools from the north state, Oregon and Nevada. This year, coach Shaun Wood said they are pulling more strong teams from the Central Valley.
Wood said there are about 20 wrestlers out of this year’s team and he sees plenty of potential for a very good year.
