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.

Lock Her Up? - And Response

It's concerning that the Republican Party elite attending the recent convention would indict, convict and jail a political opponent, when the FBI found no criminal intent to compromise national security and no other law violations were found. This "lock her up" mob mentality is third world, over-the-edge behavior that has no place in a country based on the rule-of-law, where ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
