Ray Hamill/HumboldtSports.com – Chase Steubing and the Loggers will play just four home games in the regular season in 2019.

By Ray Hamill — After playing a combined 15 home games in 2018, Eureka and St. Bernard’s will see a lot less home action in 2019.

The Loggers, who hosted nine times a year ago, including three playoff games, are scheduled to play just four games at Albee Stadium this fall, and will be on the road for six of their final eight games of the regular season.

The Crusaders, meanwhile, also will host just four games in 2019, traveling for five of their first six games.

The good news for the Crusaders is that they will play three of their final four games at home, including an all-Eureka Big 4 matchup against the Loggers at Crusader Field on October 26.

The Crusaders will also host Fortuna in the Big 4 finale in a repeat of last year’s game of the season.

The Loggers open the season with back-to-back  home games against Placer and Windsor.

Eureka’s lone home league game will be against  Fortuna on October 18.

The Loggers also play at Del Norte in their conference finale in a showdown between the White brothers.

Jason White is the head coach of Eureka, with long-time Warriors assistant Nick White now the head coach in Crescent City.

  1. St. Bernard’s needs to be placed back in the Little 4, no questions. What the HDNL did to SB is not legitimate, no school should be placed in a league based on record, league is decided by size of school, end of story.
    All the coaches know it, all the administrators know it, all the parents, etc. know it. It is not fair to the student athletes who want to win league and try hard all year to get there.
    Ray Hamill or JB should take this one up and do some research on why this is allowed to continue.

    The HDNL is made up of three board members, two of which are Charley and Jack Lakin, both with strong ties to Ferndale. Something pretty fishy here if you ask me….Ferndale won probably ten or more years in a row the Little 4, were they ever forced to play in a league higher?

    No!

    SB did not even have a Junior Varsity team last year due to low numbers, this year I think is the same. Their roster is always ranging from 18 – 28 players, last year 8 of those were either Freshman or Sophomores. Using Eureka as one example, they have both JV and Varsity teams, their Varsity team had close to or over 40 players!!

    Ray Hamill, Manny Machado, or JB should take this one up and do some research on why this is allowed to continue.

    The NCS recently got this right and moved SB back down to where they should be in their playoff brackets.

    Not sustainable, not safe for players, and not fair to the athletes trying to compete for league title and motivated for playing.
