  • The Crabbers escape

    Mike Smith has won 398 games in his 38-year career — 400 by his count, since he doesn't acknowledge two VHSL-declared forfeits from 1980. And since the man has won 12 state championships, he's had at least that many wins that were sweeter. But...
  • Opportunistic Bethel

    All week long, he preached it. And it sounded so simple that, maybe, it bordered on simplistic. Forget the last couple of weeks, Bethel coach Jeff Nelson told his players. For that matter, forget the last 10 weeks and focus on a new beginning that only...
  • SCOTT CHARGED WITH RAPE

    As they walked back to his place, she told Austin Scott she wasn't going to have sex with him. Girls always say things like that, he told police, but often change their minds. The woman fell asleep with her clothes on but woke up with her jeans off and...
  • Charges dropped in Austin Scott rape case

    Only hours after rape and sexual assault charges against ex-Penn State running back Austin Scott were dropped Friday, his lead attorney compared the investigators to ''lynch mobs'' and said the NFL hopeful plans to sue law enforcement officials and his...
  • Blue Jays snap Cubs' winning streak

    Blue Jays snap Cubs' winning streak
    Only a few days after coming off their West Coast swing, the Cubs began their artificial turf trip Friday night at the Rogers Center. The Cubs hadn't played a game on artificial turf since getting swept in Minnesota in 2006 and had not won a game on fake...
  • Bruins show off defense, hold Heritage to 88 total yards

    — Chalk this one up to the defense. A week after riding a big offensive day to a win over Norview, Bethel's offense watched with pleasure as the defense held Heritage to just 88 yards of offense Friday night. Playing with good field position all...
  • Some area quarterbacks go above, beyond just playing QB

    In a perfect world, maybe, things would be different. But this is high school football, and the average roster in the Peninsula District lists 48 players. So, sometimes, the best athlete will see extra duty. And, often times, that best athlete is the...
  • Crabbers' Watford, line start to shine

    Much was expected from Hampton's David Watford in his junior season. But after three weeks, the talented but young quarterback had been a little inconsistent. Thursday night at Todd Stadium, he was spot-on accurate. In 12 passes, he misfired only twice....
  • Bethel breaks out hammers, beats Denbigh 56-0

    It's been the team's philosophy all season, and Bethel's defense brought its "sledgehammer" to Friday night's beating of Denbigh at Todd Stadium. The Bruins' bruising and ball-happy defense capitalized on seven first-half turnovers — five coming in...
  • Walker, Bruins break free, rip Menchville 42-14

    As Rijo Walker settled under a Menchville punt Thursday night, he knew a big return would help break open what was a tie game. He fielded the ball at his 28-yard line, cut back to the right about 10 yards later, juked a defender and then outran...
  • Sunday notebook: More on the Bay Rivers District playoff scenarios

    York High holds its playoff fate, and possibly that of Bay Rivers District rival Tabb's in its hands. If the Falcons (6-2, 5-2 district) win their final two games they will earn a berth in the four-team Region I Division 4 playoffs as at least the...
  • Yankees take Lead in World Series Over Phillies 8-5

    Yankees take Lead in World Series Over Phillies 8-5
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The first instant replay call in World Series history did more than turn a double into a home run. It changed the whole game for Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees. Rodriguez's disputed shot started a big comeback and those...
