    Battle Mountain started sluggish, losing the first set 25-13, but rallied to win the final three sets 25-17, 25-16 and 25-22 to finish the year at 5-11 in the Northern 2A.

  • Longhorns clinch home playoff game with rout of Pershing County
    Thursday, October 31, 2019 1:00 AM
    After suffering its first setback in league play the week before, the Battle Mountain High School football team was looking to bounce back Thursday night against and old-time rival and three-time defending state champion in Pershing County.
    The Longhorns (6-2 overall, 6-1 Northern 2A) did just that, scoring 16 points in the first three minutes of the contest en route to a 42-6 win and the No. 2 seed in the Northern 2A in the playoffs.
    “It was a good way for us to bounce back,” said BMHS coach Mitch Domagala. “We didn’t get off the bus at all in Yerington. Once we did we played OK. Pershing County is always tough to play and you are playing the culture. It was nice to get a win over them.” 
    These same two teams will play in the opening round of the playoffs on Friday, Nov. 8, in Battle Mountain.

    Wednesday, October 30, 2019 1:00 AM
    With its postseason playoff chances gone, the next best thing for the Battle Mountain High School volleyball team is to ruin the chances of others that are trying to make the playoffs.
    The Lady Longhorns did that on Thursday night against rival Pershing County. Battle Mountain won the first two sets 25-20 and 25-22 and was cruising with an 11-5 lead in the third set. However, the Lady Mustangs scored 20 of the last 25 points to win 25-16 and send the match to a fourth set. 
    Pershing County used that momentum to win the fourth set, only to see the Lady Longhorns rally in the fifth set to claim their third league win of the season.

    But, everything looked familiar once Bellemare got onto the ice.
    Nadem Kadri and Matt Calvert each scored twice, Bellemare had a goal and two assists against his former team and the Avalanche beat the Golden Knights 6-1 on Friday.

    The Chicago Cubs hired former catcher David Ross to replace Joe Maddon as their manager Thursday, hoping he can help them get back to the playoffs after missing out for the first since 2014.

    The 42-year-old Ross played the final two of his 15 major league seasons with the Cubs and was a revered leader on the 2016 team that won the World Series, ending a championship drought dating to 1908. He spent the past three years in Chicago’s front office and was widely viewed as a potential replacement for Maddon, who compiled a 471-339-1 record in five seasons.

    The Battle Mountain High School football team was looking lay claim to the top spot in the league when it traveled to Yerington this past Friday night.

    “We just got off to a slow start,” said BMHS coach Mitch Domagala. "The kids played hard. We struggled a bit at the start, but they kept playing" 
    Yerington opened the scoring four minutes into the game on a 2-yard run by Sean-Patrick Irvine. The Lions missed the extra point to lead 6-0. Moments later, Yerington’s Erik Garcia intercepted Battle Mountain’s Aldo Castellanos and returned 30 yards for a 13-0 advantage.
