The Cougars travel to Alturas to take on the Modoc Braves for a Friday night contest tonight before returning home on Oct. 4 to face Mount Shasta.

Weed lost to Portola 39-12 on Friday, Sept. 20 but found a spark in its offense that was missing in its two shutout losses to Etna. They scored twice and gained 161 yards through the air. 
Coach Glenn Gonzales started the season with three quarterbacks but seems to have settled on last year’s QB, Alex Guzman, to take over the reins. That let Angel Nicholas join Donovan Lafortune at wide receiver, and the two proved tough to cover. 
Lafortune played basketball last year – not football – and if he’s learning or relearning the game, he took a giant step forward on Friday. He had five receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. 
Nicholas had three catches for 17 yards and gained 39 yards rushing with a TD. Hunter Smith caught two passes for 21 yards. 
Guzman threw 10 completions for 161 yards and a touchdown and gave up an interception.
