A division championship could erase Indians’ choke performance in ’05

CLEVELAND — With the Indians’ magic number at three and the team all but raising a banner for the Central Division championship, it would seem safe to put the 2005 season behind. Not that it didn’t follow the Indians to the bitter end. As Cleveland pulled into contention and appeared well on the way to Read More…

Browns defense looking to toughen up

BEREA — The Browns’ offense hit on all cylinders Sunday and played fantastic football throughout a stirring 51-45 victory over Cincinnati. As good as Cleveland’s offense was against the Bengals, though, its defense was equally bad.

Amherst downs Avon Lake in SWC volleyball showdown

AVON LAKE — Even Laurie Cogan admitted her Comets may have been sneaking a peak ahead when Amherst stepped on the court at Avon Lake for Thursday’s Southwestern Conference volleyball match. “As a coach and as players you should never look ahead,” Cogan said, “but let’s face it — it’s hard not to look ahead.

Admiral King looking to begin a winning football tradition

LORAIN — Anthony Edwards and Tim Taylor were not even been born the last time Admiral King tasted a winning football season. None of the Admirals were. Those days are lost memories of a bygone era — dusty reminders from past generations. No one is trying to turn back the clock, said Edwards, the team’s Read More…

Northwestern’s spread offense could cause Ohio State fits

COLUMBUS — It’s the yin and yang of college football: Northwestern’s spread vs. the Ohio State base 4-3 defense. Sometimes Northwestern puts four or five receivers in the pattern. At times the Wildcats have a full backfield and at other times there’s nobody there but the quarterback. No tight ends, then two of them, a Read More…
