The Eagles play at Chabot College on Saturday. Chabot lost to Sequoias 38-6 earlier in the season.

The College of the Siskiyou Eagles lost to College of the Sequoias 36-16 Saturday at home in a game they had a good chance to win until a fourth quarter lack of discipline cost them 75 yards in penalties and derailed a shot at their first victory.
The Giants jumped out to a 12-0 lead before Thairen Sivongsa connected with D’Angelo Biggs for an electrifying 71-yard touchdown. Biggs led Eagle receivers with 4 catches for 123 yards.
Sequoias led 19-10 after a Tristan Lewis field goal, but Eagle Thomas Little scored on a 1-yard run with 13:25 left in the game to make the score 19-16. Zahayas Dennis-Lee, who carried 16 times for 121 yards, set up the TD with a 76-yard run down to the Giants one-yard line.
Little had an odd stat line for the game: 3 carries for 0 yards and 1 touchdown. His other runs resulted in a no-gain and a 1-yard loss that led to his recording 0 yards while scoring.
Aside from Biggs’ 71-yard reception, the passing game generated only 89 yards on 17 attempts. Sivongsa was 8-14 with a touchdown and an interception. Coach Roche gave freshman QB Bailey Aleman some playing time mid-game, but he went 0 for 4 and threw a pick-six.
The Eagles were still in the game, trailing by three points after Little’s touchdown with 13:25 left. They had the Giants pinned in their own territory when the first of four unsportsmanlike conduct penalties by COS kept the drive alive.
Sequoias scored for a 26-16 lead and put the game away with an interception returned for a touchdown to make the score 33-16 with eight minutes remaining. The COS defense played well but couldn’t overcome five costly late penalties, three lost fumbles, and two interceptions.
Nicolas Koppy had seven tackles and Javan Montiho six for the Eagles. Wayne Parrish had five tackles and a sack for a 10-yard loss. Dustin Long and Angelo Puljic had sacks and Herb Polu and Taye Courtney had a half sack each. Kicker Tristan Lewis made a 29 yard field goal and hit an extra point. He also averaged 48 yards on five kickoffs and twice pinned the Giants behind their 20-yard line with punts. The Eagles had good special teams play with Christian Dowdell running a kickoff back 22 yards and D’Angelo Biggs, 20 yards, and Jacob Horton, 17 yards, with good returns.
