Watching the game is harder than it sounds

August 25, 2010

I have to admit that I have a refrigerator full of generic brand diet colas. They may not taste as good as Diet Coke, but does Diet Coke really taste as good as regular Coke?
The point is that if you look around my place, and if you look around your own house, you’ll probably find that you’ve gone generic on a lot of products. It might be food, drinks or even paper plates.
Companies will always find a way to make a cheaper version of a product that often runs out of my price range, and I don’t mind that.

Lady Eagles continue streak against Central

August 25, 2010

The Diamond Eagles of Hebron Christian School continued their domination of the region on Monday night, with an 18-2 win over Central Academy.
For the last two weeks, Hebron has been on an offensive surge that has been coupled with good defense and excellent pitching.
Central was able to hold the Lady Eagles to minimal damage for the first four innings, but in the fifth, Hebron exploded.
“It really took us a while to adjust to the pitching,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “We didn’t have any K’s in the game but just couldn’t do anything with the ball for a while.”

Gregg says ‘lack of concentration’ key in loss to Heritage last Friday

August 25, 2010

It’s a new week for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders, who are coming off a week one 28-14 loss to the Heritage Academy Patriots.
Friday night’s game came down to which team could get the big plays, and it was Heritage that took advantage of a couple of defensive miscues by the Raiders for a pair of touchdowns.
The Raider offense could not get free as many big runs as the Patriots did, and they were left two touchdowns in the hole when the buzzer ended the game.

Meet the Buccaneers

August 25, 2010

Standing near midfield at Daytona Beach’s re-furbished Municipal Stadium, Mainland High School linebacker Mike Swillicote and his teammates marveled at the stadium’s new artificial turf surface.
“I can’t wait to get out here and play football on this stuff,” Swillicote said at the turf’s unveiling two weeks, to which his teammates quickly agreed.
Well, guys, now’s your chance.

For the Wave, it’s going to be a short week of practice, as the team departs on Thursday to its destination.
“It’s business as usual for us,” said Green Wave head coach Chris Chambless. “We always use Mondays to correct mistakes from Friday, and then we start working on our next opponent.”

Raiders set for home match against Heritage

Last season, the Heritage Academy Patriots looked quite intimidating out of the gates. However, down the stretch, the team experienced nine straight losses to negate a 3-0 start.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders are going to try to make it 10 consecutive loses on Friday night, and they will be trying to avenge an opening week loss to Heritage in 2009.
That loss was 47-14, and it set the tone for an 0-4 start for the Raiders.
The Patriots are going to be attempting a winning start, with a pretty formidable roster, which sports a little under 30 players.
