    OAKLAND CITY—Perry Central will face an offensively challenged football team when the Commodores visit Wood Memorial Friday at 7 p.m.
    The 0-5 Trojans scored 34 points in a 42-34 season-opening loss to Princeton but haven’t scored more than six points in a game since.
    Their defense hasn’t helped them keep games close either, as they’ve given up an average of 49.4 points per game and at least 42 each game.

    TELL CITY—Southridge, a team with a varied running attack, will visit Tell City for a PAC football game Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    Tell City Coach Ryan George said the Raiders have “good” team speed and Daniel Perez, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior, is their fastest back.
    Perez, who rushed for 994 yards last year, “is a good running back for them,” said George. “He’ll run inside and outside.”

  • New teams involved make MLB...

    When I did not pick the Boston Red Sox to win their division or even place second this year, someone asked a friend of mine if I was sick.
    Actually I was being practical, as after last September’s remarkable collapse and the off-season loss of star closer Jonathan Papelbon I feared it would be impossible for the Red Sox to recover this season.
    As it turns out, I still overrated them by picking them to finish third in the American League East.

  • Marksmen stop Rebels; still...

    REO—Tell City lost only three games in singles matches and won every match in straight sets to beat South Spencer 5-0 in PAC boys tennis Thursday.

    Anjan Kashyab defeated Davis Jefferies 6-0, 6-1 in No. 1 singles.
