Braves survive flag fest in Lost River

Yellow flags were flying all over the place during the Modoc Braves-Lost River game Friday night at Lost River. And the most critical penalties came on the Braves’ big plays, including a 60-yard touchdown that got called back.
Still, Modoc beat the Raiders 20-13. “It should have been 60-7,” said coach Shaun Wood. “The only time they stopped us was on penalties. But we survived it and played well.”
The Braves face a strong Trinity team this Friday night in their home opener. Wood said Trinity brings in one of the top running backs in the north section, but feels his Braves will be up to the challenge, especially coming home after three road games to start the season.

JV whip Lost River

Modoc’s junior varsity football team used a strong defense and productive running game to beat the Lost River squad 21-8 Friday. They play host to Trinity here tomorrow.
The Braves and Lost River were knotted at 8-8 in the first period but the Braves added 13 in the second period and held the Raiders scoreless the rest of the way.

Modoc Soccer blanked by Butte Valley

The Butte Valley soccer team beat Modoc 3-0 last Thursday, but Modoc had plenty of chances to score. Modoc heads to Tulelake Today.
“We played great and out shot Butte Valley,” said coach Bill Hall. “We had possession about 70 percent of the time. We could not win the ball on counter attacks and had trouble just putting the ball into the net. We had trouble judging offsides. All of these are fixable.”
