LAGRANGE – With a new coach in Elizabeth Wynn, Keystone expects to turn things around this season and become one of the more respectable soccer teams in the Patriot Athletic Conference.

“We have a young team that is showing improvement as the year progresses,” Wynn said. “Everyone on the team is willing to learn and is striving to be part of a better team.”


FALL SPORTS PREVIEW


The youth part comes in with the team graduating 9 seniors last spring. Luckily the PAC is broken down into divisions so the Wildcats need to beat out only four other teams in order to capture a divisional crown.

“We will be competitive in our division this year and our goal is to win our division,” Wynn said.

Notre Dame kicks off gridiron 


action with loss to Mercyhurst

 

Aug. 29, 2010


By Andy Barch


LYNDHURST -- A new era kicked off on 
Saturday night, with Notre Dame College presenting the pageantry of collegiate tackle football for the first time.  With a 23-0 loss at the hands of the Mercyhurst (Pa.) Lakers, Falcon Football is now off the ground. 

 

With a charged atmosphere in a bustling Korb Field, Notre Dame Football kicked off at 7:06 PM on Saturday.  Moments later, NDC ran its first play from scrimmage, which resulted in a 9-yard gain.  But that would turn out to be one of the Falcons’ best plays on a night when they were held to 127 yards of offense.

Euclid's Andrew Bailey scored

twice for Mercyhurst

 

The game opened with Notre Dame receiving the opening kickoff; Tim Donald returned the ball 16 yards from the 10 and NDC would run its first play from its own 26-yard line.  That historic first play from scrimmage was a pass on the play call, but quarterback #an Cyr was flushed from the pocket.  He scampered nine yards, and that set up the Falcons moving the chains for the first time in program history: on second-and-one, Donald ran for three yards.

About The Eagles

YPSILANTI -- Losing is one thing. Not getting through to people is quite another.

So describes the 2009 transition at Eastern Michigan under demanding first-year coach Ron English. The 0-12 record was not the worst part for English.

Ron English

English hates losing his S/A's attention more than losing itself

"Obviously, to lose every game is hard. I mean, it's hard," English said. "But what really bothered me is that I don't think we developed as much as we could have. The buy-in wasn't what it needed to be."

Saint Ignatius defended the Jesuit Cup it won last year by defeating Walsh Jesuit in Toledo, on St. John's pitch today, 3-0.

Yianni Sarris came to play.  The senior midfielder added a goal and two assists to his two goals from yesterday afternoon's game against St. John as the Wildcats clinched another Jesuit Cup championship.

Senior Ryan Ivancic connected on his first goal of the season on a cross pass from Sarris and senior defender Cody Dawson took a Sarris throw in and scored his first career goal.

Junior Brendan Cash continued his good play early in the season, picking up his third win after picking up the shutout against St. John yesterday.

 After traveling to Saint John Jesuit in Toledo, the team recorded its second shutout in as many games, defeating the hometown team 2-0, last night in the first round of the Ohio Jesuit Cup.

The new look defense of Saint Ignatius, the Jesuit Cup Champions in 2009, got it done again against Saint John Saturday night by only allowing 3 shots on goal against Junior goaltender Brendan Cash who got his second straight shutout (he shared his first one against University School).

Brendan Cash

This performance coming off a stellar game agianst US in which the defense allowed only four shots on goal. 

It took the Cats some time to break the defense of the Titans though. However, Toledo St. John finally cracked with 20 mintues left in the second half when Sarris sent a laser beam of a free kick from 20 yards out to beat the St. John's goaltender in the upper right corner of the goal and to get his first score of the 2010 season.

Sarris netted another goal to ice the game a few minutes later.  The team was facing Walsh Jesuit today for the Jesuit Cup Championship
