By Ray Hamill — The Del Norte Warriors will try to rebound from last weekend’s lopsided loss at Fortuna when they host a struggling Trinity team in Crescent City on Friday night,
Last week, Del Norte fell 62-32 to the high-flying Huskies, getting dominated along the lines in their first loss of the season.
“We just didn’t answer the bell,” Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova said. “We got caught flat-footed and we didn’t respond.”
The Warriors (5-1) will get the opportunity to put that loss behind them when they host a normally tough Trinity program that has struggled to an 0-4 record this year.
After getting blow out in their opening three games, the Wolves played Yreka closer last week, falling 22-12.
The Warriors will be expected to win this one, but just as importantly they’ll be looking for a good response performance wise.
And they’ll need it with league play just two weeks away after next week’s bye.
“We need to get back into the groove of things,” Nova said. “We need to get some things straightened out and use our bye week to fine tune some things.
“And for us to compete, we’ve got to play better.”
The game is the Warriors’ homecoming and is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
