    “Sayre played a 2-3 zone against us and we adjusted pretty well to it as the game went on,” she said.

  • I could have made that kick

    I am not the only person that falls into this category I am sure, but I may be one of the few to admit it.

  • Good-bye Captain Hook, you did a...

    This past week, one of the all time great managers lost his battle with dementia.  
    I won’t dwell on the horror of this disease, but only say that according to reports hospice had been called in only the day before he died.
    Hopefully he didn’t suffer.  
    I want to go over what I recall of Sparky Anderson’s career as a manager, the first if not the only manager to win a world championship in both leagues.  

  • Lexington Catholic has narrow...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds battled the heavily favored Lexington Catholic Knights tooth and nail Friday night before losing by a 27-19 score.  
    Though both teams entered the game with even 5-5 records, the home-standing Knights were more than a two touchdown favorite based on strength of schedule.  
    It wasn’t until less than two minutes left in the game that the Knights gained the biggest lead of the game in the final 27-19 score.
