Etna comes to town for Homecoming

Modoc’s varsity football team lost to the Lakeview’s Honkers 23-12 Friday night in Lakeview, hampered by an unusual rash of penalties.
Modoc was flagged 15 times for 170 yards. In the previous three games, Modoc was flagged three times for 37 yards, four times for 35 yards and three times for 25 yards.
While Modoc Coach Shaun Wood was pretty disgusted, he said the penalties were “unbelievable.” He said a couple of other things, but not for publication.
Etna comes to Modoc for Homecoming this week. They were idle last week, but lost to Trinity 41-7 Sept. 25.

Modoc JVs blank Lakeview

Modoc’s junior varsity football team has held opponents scoreless for the past 16 quarters and faces Etna’s Lions this Friday night in the Homecoming preliminary.
The Braves are coming off a 26-0 win over Lakeview, there, last Friday night. Etna beat the JV squad last year, but this year’s team is playing well.
“Etna’s been pretty tough the last couple of years and beat us last season,” said coach Dominic Budmark. “I don’t think they’re as strong this year, and if we play the way we’re capable of, we’ll be fine. We played very well in Lakeview.”

Braves netters beat tough Trinity team

The Modoc varsity volleyball team beat Trinity Saturday, in five games, 25-21, 18-25; 20-25, 25-22, 15-6. On Tuesday the Braves varsity beat Burney there, 19-25, 25-14, 25-20, 25-22, and the JV’s won 25-18, 27-25.
