In a season of many peaks and few valleys the Butte College Roadrunner Football team has captured their second state and national championship in the last six years. With their 28-13 win over Fullerton on Saturday at Cowan Stadium the Roadrunners captured the state title and a co-national championship. It was their first such feats since the magical 2008 season.

 

Jeff Jordan's team strengths were on full display on Saturday as they pressured Fullerton throughout the afternoon. The performances of tight ends Bo Brummel and Richard Murphy proved pivotal all day as they both caught critical touchdown passes in the win.

 

Butte running attack was able to keep Fullerton honest as the Roadrunners gained 221 yards on the ground with Robert Frazier rushing 20 times for 86 yards. Thomas Stuart made the most out of his 13 completions going 13-of-23 for 203 and 3 touchdowns. Richard Murphy had 5 receptions for 143 and a touchdown while fellow tight-end Bo Brummel had four catches for 55 yards and two touchdowns.

 

Defense once again keyed the Butte win with numerous pressures and four interceptions, two of which came from London Muse with one of them returned for the game-clinching score.

 

Thomas Stuart hits Richard Murphy with this 69 yard touchdown pass to give Butte an early 12-0 lead.....

 

 

Facing a 4th and 10 from the Fullerton 14 yard line Stuart hits Bremmel for a big score giving the Roadrunners a two score lead....

 

 

The Roadrunners sealed the deal with under a minute to go as London Muse returns an interception 52 yards for a score sending nearly 5000 fans into a frenzy.....

 

 

The Roadrunners finish the season 12-0 and will share the national title with East Mississippi.

By Mike Baca

CHICO'S RASHAD PARKER POSTED A CAREER HIGH 31 POINTS AS THE CATS BEAT STANISLAUS FOR

6TH STRAIGHT WIN.

 

 

Chico's Rashad Parker scored a career high 31 points as hit 8-of-13 from the field while knocking down five three-pointers and going 10-of-11 from the charity stripe.

 

 

Chico's dominance was helped by how closely the game was called as the teams were whistled for 44 fouls with Chico converting 29-of-34 from the free throw line. The Wildcats got another great performance from Jordan Semple. The junior from Arcata scored 13 points and grabbed a team-high 13 rebounds. The Cats Sean Park, who was held scoreless in the first half, busted loose in half number two scoring all 14 of his points in the second half.....

 

 

The Wildcats were beaten by the Warriors in mid-November 80-78 in overtime, but this time turned the tables. A big reason why was the turn-around on the boards. When the two teams met in Turlock Stanislaus out-rebounded the Cats 47-36 while garnering an astonishing 20 offensive boards. This time the Cats would out-board Stanislaus 30-21 holding the much bigger Warriors to only 8 offensive rebounds.

 

Its now time to hit the books for the Cats as they will take finals this week and then have a mandatory seven-day break from hoops over the holiday break before returning to action on January 3rd against CCAA power Cal State San Bernardino in Southern California.

 

49ERS WIN FOURTH STRAIGHT WITH 33-14 WIN OVER THE BUCS

 

 

FRANK GORE RUSHES FOR OVER 1000 YARDS AGAIN FOR THE NINERS

 

(AP) — Vernon Davis caught a touchdown pass for the fifth straight game and Michael Crabtree scored his first TD since returning from injury to help the San Francisco 49ers beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 33-14 on Sunday.

The victory was the fourth straight for Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers (10-4), who pulled away for good with a 10-minute, fourth-quarter drive that produced a field goal. Kendall Hunter put it well out of reach, scooping up a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and diving 2 yards into the end zone for a touchdown.

Tampa Bay got within 20-14 on Mike Glennon's TD pass to Tim Wright on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Bucs (4-10) didn't get the ball back until after Kaepernick used 17 plays to march the 49ers 77 yards into position for Phil Dawson to kick one of his four field goals.

 

HIDE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN; RAIDERS GIVE UP 56 IN LOSS TO CHIEFS

 

 

JAMAAL CHARLES SCORES FIVE TOUCHDOWNS AS THE RAIDERS DEFENSE HITS A RECORD BREAKING LOW

 

(AP) — Jamaal Charles tied a franchise record with five touchdowns in a game, Alex Smith threw five TD passes and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Raiders 56-31 on Sunday to clinch at least a wild-card spot.

The Chiefs (11-3) became the fourth team ever to make the playoffs a year after losing at least 14 games. Kansas City is tied for first place in the AFC West with Denver but needs help to win the division because the Broncos swept the season series.

Charles gained 215 yards from scrimmage as the Chiefs put up the highest point total allowed in Raiders' history.

Matt McGloin threw four interceptions and lost a fumble while sharing time with Terrelle Pryor. Oakland (4-10) lost its fourth straight game.

 

WARRIORS LOSE TO SUNS; MARK JACKSON LOSING PATIENCE

 

 

(AP) — Eric Bledsoe scored seven of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and the Phoenix Suns won their fifth straight game, holding off Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors 106-102 Sunday night.

Bledsoe added eight rebounds and eight assists, Goran Dragic scored 21 points, and Channing Frye added 20 for the Suns.

Curry scored 30 points, including 20 in the second half, and Klay Thompson added 19 for the Warriors, who have lost three of four. David Lee added 18 points and 13 rebounds for his fifth straight double-double.

Golden State trailed by as many as nine in the third quarter, but pulled to within 76-75 on Curry's 3-pointer that capped a 10-2 Golden State run.

Warriors Head Coach Mark Jackson questioned his team's resolve in his post-game chat with reporters.

"You've got to call it what it is. If you are able to talk about how great they are, then certainly when they're bad, they got to be able to take it. They need to own it and get better." He added, "Us coaches see it. Everybody sees it, but I don't see anybody in uniform with the same passion as they guys sitting in suits and ties on the bench. Enough is enough."

Curry may have summed it up. "I know we are a good team, but you can't call yourself a good team when you are 13-12."

 

GAY SHINES IN KINGS DEBUT; SACRAMENTO KNOCKS OFF ROCKETS

 

(AP) — Rudy Gay scored 26 points in his first home game since coming over in a trade from Toronto, leading the Sacramento Kings past the Houston Rockets 106-91 Sunday night.

Gay added five rebounds and four assists. He finished 10-for-20 shooting in a dazzling home debut for the Kings, who had lost eight of their past 10 games.

DeMarcus Cousins had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Isaiah Thomas added 19 points and eight assists to help Sacramento hold on to the lead for most of the final three quarters.

James Harden twisted his left ankle early in the third quarter but finished with 25 points, and Dwight Howard had 13 points and 10 rebounds while battling foul trouble in a disappointing end to Houston's cramped three-game road trip. The Rockets lost at Portland on Thursday and won at Golden State on Friday.

 

ENTERPRISE COMES BACK FROM 14 DOWN TO CAPTURE D-II NOR-CAL TITLE

By Mike Baca

 

Their fans and supporters clamored for it all season long, so when Enterprise, the small school from the North Section had a chance to prove itself on the big stage they made the most of it. Coming back from a 14-0 deficit the North Section's Enterprise Hornets knocked off Manteca High 27-21 to advance to the state title game next weekend in Carson at the Home Depot Center against Chaminade High.

 

Enterprise had to keep their wits about them after falling behind by two touchdowns. But the Hornets relied on that solid defensive front and their running game to forge in front and hang on for the win.

 

Enterprise is only the second North Section school to play for a state title. Hamilton High earned their trip to the title game in 2008 before eventually falling in the title match-up.

49ERS BEAT SEATTLE; KEEP DIVISION HOPES ALIVE

 

 

49er Frank Gore stiff-arms a defender on one of his many productive carries on Sunday

 

(AP) — Phil Dawson kicked a 22-yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining and the San Francisco 49ers held off the Seattle Seahawks 19-17 on Sunday.

Frank Gore broke a 51-yard gain with just more than four minutes left to set up the go-ahead 11-play, 76-yard drive as the 49ers (9-4) kept the playoff-bound Seahawks (11-2) from clinching the NFC West on San Francisco's home field.

Dawson's fourth field goal of the day gave him 20 straight converted field goals, a franchise record topping Joe Nedney's 18 consecutive in 2006-07.

Russell Wilson threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Luke Willson and Marshawn Lynch ran for an 11-yard score for Seattle, denied a franchise-best sixth road victory.

The 49ers are unbeaten at home against the West since losing to the Seahawks on Oct. 26, 2008.

 

 

The Oakland Raiders fall to the New York Jets 37-27 on Sunday. Despite a long TD scamper from Marcel Reese the Raiders could not contain Geno Smith and the Jets offense. The 37 points was a season high for New York.

 

WILDCATS WIN FOUR GAMES IN EIGHT DAYS DURING DIFFICULT STRETCH

 

 

Why was THIS GUY smiling ? 24pts 5 Rebs 3 Assists and 2 Steals against his rival THAT'S WHY !

 

The Chico State men's basketball team capped off a stellar eight days of basketball by beating Sonoma State on Saturday night in Rohnert Park. Despite getting off to a slow start the Cats would get rolling late in the first half thanks for a flurry of three-pointers from guard Rashad Parker. The senior was mired in a 4-for-28 shooting slump from long distance before heating up against the Seawolves....

 

 

 

Parker finished with a season high 23 points. Sean Park would pace the Cats with 24, matching his career high. Park, who was limited to only 12 minutes in Friday night's win against San Francisco State, also contributed 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.

 

 

Fellow senior Amir Carraway chipped in with 14 as the Cats moved to 6-1 overall and 2-1 in CCAA play.

 

 

The 79-68 win over Sonoma State capped off a stretch where the Wildcats knocked off the 8-2 Dominican Univeristy Penguins, the 9-2 Seattle-Pacific Falcons, and the San Francisco State Gators, who were averaging 87 points a game, but managed a mere 50 in a 67-50 loss to the Cats on Friday. Chico looks to avenge their only loss of the season when they host Cal State Stanislaus this Saturday night from Acker Gym. Game time will be at 7pm with our pre-game show at 6:35.

 

CHICO STATE WOMEN GET FIRST CCAA WIN

 

The 11th ranked Chico State women salvaged the final game of their Bay Area road-trip with a 65-58 win over the Sonoma State Seawolves. The CCAA season had not been kind to the Wildcats, who found themselves 0-2 in the CCAA play for the first time in years. Chico held a 59-58 lead with under a minute to go but forced back-to-back turnovers and converted free throws down the stretch to pull out the win.

 

Analiese Reizebos had a great game for Chico State scoring 9 points and pulling a career high 15 rebounds. Jazmine Miller led the Cats in scoring with 16. Chico will host Cal State Stanislaus on December 21st at Acker Gym. They will try and get some pay-back for one of their two CCAA losses.

 

 

 

PROMINENT SKIPPERS WILL BE ENSHRINED

Each of the inductees won more than 2,000 games in managerial careers that spanned more than four decades. Torre became the fifth manager to win at least four World Series titles. La Russa won championships with Oakland and St. Louis. Cox led Atlanta to one championship and 14 straight division titles.

GRONK DONE FOR THE YEAR

 

 

Patriots tight-end Rob Gronkowski tears his ACL and MCL on this hit by Cleveland Browns Safety TJ Ward

 

(AP) — A person familiar with the injury tells The Associated Press that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a torn ACL and damaged MCL.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the team made no announcement. There was no word on when surgery would be done.

Gronkowski was hurt midway through the third quarter of the Patriots' 27-26 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday when he was hit on the right knee by safety T.J. Ward after a 21-yard reception.

Gronkowski missed the first six games this season after forearm and back surgeries. In the next six games, he led all NFL tight ends with 37 catches and 560 yards receiving. On Sunday, he had two catches for 32 yards.

 

DOC HANGS EM UP

 

(AP) Two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay has retired after 16 seasons in the major leagues with Toronto and Philadelphia.

The 36-year-old right-hander signed a one-day contract Monday to retire as a member of the Blue Jays, where he spent the first 12 years of his career. He made the announcement at a news conference at the winter meetings in Orlando.

Halladay played for the Phillies from 2010-13, finishing with two injury-plagued seasons. He won an NL Cy Young Award in 2010, throwing a perfect game that season and a no-hitter in his first postseason game.

Halladay was 203-105 with an ERA of 3.38 in 416 career games, including 390 starts. He had 67 complete games and 20 shutouts.
