FALL CREEK — Every 10 points or so, it seemed like somebody from Regis was calling for a towel to wipe up the floor. With how many times the Ramblers hit the deck to dig out a ball and keep a play alive, it’s surprising the towel didn’t appear every five points. After falling in the first set, last year’s Division 3 runners up turned up the intensity defensively and turned away eighth-ranked Fall Creek 21-25, 25-21, 25-20, 25-22 in Western Cloverbelt volleyball
The Chippewa Steel fell 4-1 to Amarillo in Blaine, Minn., on Tuesday afternoon, dropping their second game in as many days. Chippewa Falls’ new franchise fell behind 3-0 in the first quarter and never recovered. Grant Reichenbacher scored the lone goal for the Steel in the second period. Jackson Bernard made 20 saves in net for Chippewa. The game was part of the North American Hockey League Showcase. The Steel (2-2) resume action at the Showcase today against Lone Star.
COLFAX — For the past two years, defense wasn’t exactly a strength for the Colfax football team. The scoreboard often backed that up. The Vikings totaled just two wins over the last two seasons, and surrendered 30 or more points in 15 games during that span — the first two seasons under the guidance of coach Matt DeMoe. Year three? The numbers are better — significantly. The Vikings are 3-1 this fall, surpassing their number of wins from the last two seasons by
MILWAUKEE — Gio Gonzalez is getting comfortable with his new team. The left-hander pitched six smooth innings on his 33rd birthday and Jesus Aguilar hit a three-run homer in the Milwaukee Brewers' 7-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night. Manny Pina also had a three-run shot and Aguilar finished with four RBIs as he reached 103 for the season. Gonzalez's stellar showing helped the Brewers boost their lead for the top NL wild card to three games over St. Louis, which lost
Lost among Alex Hornibrook’s third-quarter interception, Rafael Gaglianone’s miss in the final minute and a final result that may have crushed the University of Wisconsin’s playoff hopes was one of the few Badgers players who enjoyed a milestone day in Saturday’s 24-21 loss to BYU. Running back Taiwan Deal, who missed 22 games over the past two seasons with ankle injuries, scored twice -- his first times reaching the end zone since his redshirt freshman season in 2015.
EAGAN, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings have almost every key player back from the 2017 team that won 14 games and went to the NFC championship game. Their new quarterback, Kirk Cousins, is playing up to his big contract. They’re one kick away from starting this season unbeaten. For all their strengths and stability, let alone dwindling space under the salary cap, the Vikings still sought upgrades at three positions in the three days that passed since their 29-29 tie at Green
Believe it or not the score was 67-65. That’s 132 points. In one game on one day, although it seemed like it lasted a week. Eighteen touchdowns in three hours. Or six per hour. And in 12 minute quarters. That’s 12 minutes less than in colleges and the pros, although in double overtime each time got two more series. A Carson Park record. A Big Rivers record. A world record. Probably not, but right up in there. In comparison, it outdoes Chippewa Falls’ 44-41 win and
GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers channeled a fictional prize fighter to describe how he felt after playing the Minnesota Vikings. “If you’ve seen (the movie) ‘Rocky III,’ you know Clubber Lang has a prediction before the fight: ‘Pain,’” Rodgers said with a smile on Wednesday. “That’s kind of what it felt like.” Rodgers said that he remained a “little sore” following the 29-29 tie against Minnesota last week when he played
