HS Weekend: Butte Valley football’s road remains rough



After playing two of the best teams in the entire division, the Butte Valley Bulldogs football team hosts Big Valley tonight (5:40 p.m. – Newstalk 1150 KAGO). 

The last two seasons, including Butte Valley’s sectional championship season in 2011, the Bulldogs have beaten Big Valley by a combined score of 94-6. However, Butte Valley head coach Jason Allen says the match-up with Big Valley this season doesn’t lessen the degree of difficulty for his team.

At Modoc Field, the Klamath Union Pelicans celebrate Homecoming, and Senior Night, as the final home game occurs with three games left in the regular season. KU’s opponent is the Phoenix Pirates, who have lost two of their last three games after a 3-0 start.

Both teams lost last weekend. Klamath Union spoiled a 21-7 second quarter lead against North Valley to lose 41-35, while Phoenix lost 34-27 to Mazama. Only the top three teams from the Skyline Conference are guaranteed postseason games and four teams share 1-1 conference records: Phoenix, KU, North Valley and Henley. Tonight’s KU-Phoenix match-up, along with Henley’s road game at North Valley, will go a long way in determining the playoff teams.
