Injuries, penalties help Summit slip away

September 28, 2005

With Ian Bohince, Erick Lujano, Scott Baker, Josh Castanada, Tony Guisto and Obed Bello sitting out part or all of the game due to injuries, the Eagles had their work cut out for them Friday night on the road against Summit High School.

After storming out to a 13-0 lead in the first quarter, Hood River slipped in the second and third quarters to let Summit take a 20-13 lead. A comeback attempt in the fourth quarter was cut short by the clock and as time expired the Summit defense held on to a two point lead. The final was 23-21, Summit.

“The game was a tough one for us,” Coach Tracy Jackson said. “We were in position to win a couple times and we really did not finish the ball game the way we would have liked.”

Injuries and penalties played a big role in the game, unfortunately to the advantage of the Summit squad. Hood River’s junior running back and (before Friday) the leading rusher in the Intermountain Conference, Bohince, was out due to a strained hamstring. Lujano didn’t set foot on the field either, due to a sprained ankle. Baker was only used for a couple of plays due to a recovering shoulder injury. And Castanada only played a quarter due to a foot strain. Late in the game the Eagles suffered major blows to their line-up, with quarterback Guisto leaving the field due to a hip injury and Bello leaving the field due to a concussion.

Adding to the frustration of injuries, the Eagles had six penalties against them in the game.

“With the penalties we had, we didn’t play our best game,” said Jackson. “But the Eagles put together a great effort and it’s all fixable. We have good kids that want to get things fixed and we will continue to improve and push through to keep getting better.”

According to Jackson, the crew should be at almost full strength for the next game on Friday against top IMC contender Redmond High School. Bonince, Lujano, Baker and Castanada are expected to play, while it is unclear weather Guisto and Bello will be ready.

Taking the place of Guisto late in the fourth quarter and in a clutch situation was sophomore junior varsity quarterback Travis Carratt.

“Travis did a great job for us,” Jackson said. “He hung in there and played cool-headed.”

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213.
