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.

West Point’s week three game vs Columbus cancelled

August 24, 2010

West Point High School’s football game at Columbus high, scheduled for Sept. 3, has been canceled according to Steve Montgomery, Superintendent of West Point schools.
The cancellation stems from an issue with the MHSAA and the addition of a game against Mainland Fla., which takes place this Friday. In April, West Point officials applied for permission to add Mainland to the scheduled, giving West Point 12 regular season games, which is one over the allowed number of 11.
