Foard Keeps On Rolling

August 24, 2010

The Fred T. Foard Tigers are off to a good start. Foard won last week’s Freedom Soccer Invitational, and it stayed unbeaten Monday with a 3-2 overtime win at home over Shelby Crest.

Local Legend Passes Away

August 23, 2010

The Catawba Valley lost a sports broadcasting legend Sunday. Bill Bass, a longtime public address announcer in Catawba County, died Sunday at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem after a short-term battle with an illness. He was 79. 

“He was a Southern gentleman at heart,” Dr. Carl Starnes said. “He never had a bad thing to say about anybody. There was nobody that didn’t like Bill. It was always a pleasure, interesting, and kind of like being with an older brother or uncle...It’s going to be tough, but it’s something we’ve got to live with.”

Taking Advantage Of Turnovers

August 22, 2010

The Carolina Panthers and the word “turnover” were supposed to only be synonymous with one another in the off-season.

On Saturday night, the two were connected early and often on the field. The New York Jets capitalized on five Carolina giveaways on their way to a rugged 9-3 preseason win at Bank of America Stadium.

“We‘re capable of making plays, we just need to keep working,” said Panthers starting quarterback Matt Moore, who completed 6 of 17 passes for 57 yards and one interception in one half of play.

Maiden Attacks North Lincoln

August 21, 2010

From the opening kick-off of the season’s opening game it became quickly clear that turnovers would play a big role in Maiden’s contest against North Lincoln.

In fact after Maiden fumbled the game’s opening kick-off, it appeared the turnover battle would bounce the way of the Blue Devils’ visiting opponent.

However, between one interception by Richard Kerekes and ensuing 44-yard return that set up a Maiden touchdown before half-time and a third quarter interception by Alex Lomax that set up another Blue Devil score, the home team was able to turn the turnover tide in their favor.

Trojans Use Strong Running Attack

August 21, 2010

The Bandys Trojans sported a new look Friday on the plains of Plateau Road — conservative.

The Trojans were not the pass-slinging teams of the past three seasons. They lined up under center more, and they ran the ball a lot more.

“We are going to ram the ball down opponents’ throats every play,” wide receiver Dylan King said. “That’s all we are going to do — just run it down their throats, run it down their throats.”
