Lightning Cuts Covenant-Centre Soccer Game Short

Sunday, August 31, 2014
ATLANTA, Ga. -- The Covenant men's soccer team could feel another victory coming on. Unfortunately, lightning in the Atlanta area would take away any chance of the Scots getting their second win in as many days.

With 28:39 left in the second half, the match between Covenant and Centre was called off due to the weather conditions. Covenant held a 1-0 lead at the time. The match is officially a no contest and no statistics will be counted.

For a match to be considered official, 70 minutes must be played.
This one was just 8:39 away from that point.

Snoopy Davidson scored in the third minute, with assists from Ian Meredith and Joel Friesen, as he put the Scots ahead 1-0. Covenant was out-shooting Centre 10-3 overall and 5-0 in shots on goal when the match was called. But all those statistics will be thrown away.

Covenant will take its 1-0 record into next weekend's David Taaffe Invitational on Lookout Mountain. Maryville, Wilmington (Ohio) and Millsaps, along with Covenant, will make up the field. Covenant plays Friday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. against Wilmington after Maryville and Millsaps play at 5 p.m.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Fourth Of July, 2015

As one who is about good and fed up with being “socially correct” so less than 10 percent of us can dictate how the other 90 percent of us ought to think, I am going to pause today in order to share a wonderfully fun email that has been around for a while. It is aptly called, “You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop.” Before I do, I got a sweet note the other day from my dear friend ... (click for more)
