Everyone expected a good game last Friday as Portola ran out onto Chester’s field, and no one was disappointed. Chester lost the championship to Portola last year, but took its revenge Nov. 8 by beating the Tigers 35-26.
The Tigers brought their signature toughness to the game, but in the end, the Volcanoes’ speed and decisive execution won them the game.
The game was pretty even through the first half, with both teams’ defense controlling the field. Each team managed to score twice in the half, however. Chester came out swinging in the second half and scored one more touchdown than Portola to take the win.
