Tough night for the Eureka Loggers in Windsor

The Eureka Loggers were outmatched on both sides of the ball on Saturday night, falling 41-6 at Windsor in a football game that had been rescheduled from earlier in the season.

The Jaguars scored two touchdowns in the opening quarter and added a third early in the second to take control of the game, and they never looked back.

They stretched the advantage to four TDs early in the second half and almost posted a shutout, with the Loggers not scoring until the final seconds of the game.

“We learned some lessons the hard way, that’s for sure,” Eureka head coach Andrew Haraldson said.

Peyton Harbin scored the Loggers’ only touchdown on a pass from quarterback Hans Chalmers.

But it was little comfort for a Eureka team that struggled to compete with the Sonoma County school.

“Windsor is very good,” Haraldson said. “They’re very well coached and they have a lot of talent, and you can tell they practice at a certain pace and intensity.

“We know we’ve got to apply some lessons for next week.”

There were few bright spots for the Loggers, but Haraldson did praise the efforts of senior running back Kayro Jimenez.

“He ran the ball well, but (Windsor) pretty much controlled the game,” the Eureka coach said.

With the loss, which was their second straight, the Loggers dropped to 1-2 on the season.

They open league play at Fortuna next weekend in a rematch of last season’s thrilling finale.
