  • Alex Barclay Panthers top Spa in four games

    Cliché or not, the Saegertown boys volleyball team truly turned in a team effort Thursday night at Cambridge Springs.
    A solid win in Game 1, followed by a come-from-behind victory in Game 2 had the Panthers and a sizable road fan base on their feet, as Saegertown went on to beat the Blue Devils in four games, 25-22, 25-20, 24-26, 25-21.

  • Penguins clinch first in Metropolitan Division

    It had been inevitable for quite a while, but now it is official: The Penguins are the champions of the Metropolitan Division.
    They actually clinched the top spot there an hour or so before their 4-2 victory over Winnipeg at MTS Centre Thursday night became official.
    Philadelphia’s 2-0 loss to Columbus at the Wells Fargo Center was more than enough to assure the Penguins’ spot atop the Metropolitan, as they have wrapped up a division title in consecutive years for just the second time in franchise history.

  • Party of five

    It may take a while before anyone can prove themselves due to a harsh winter season and a less-than-cooperative spring. But whenever things truly get going, it should be an exciting season in Region 3 softball this year.
    Cambridge Springs, Cochranton, Maplewood, Saegertown and Union City all return a wealth of talent to the diamond in 2014, including a total of 11 all-region selections. The biggest questions just might be how Maplewood and Saegertown manage to fill the voids left on the mound and whether or not some of last year’s big bats can keep it going in 2014.

  • McCann on the hill Eagles win region opener vs. Grove City

    Baseball teams in Region 6 are already familiar with Grove City ace Matt Gordon, the region’s reigning Pitcher of the Year.
    One pitcher that may not be on everybody’s radar, however, is Conneaut’s senior lefty Chris McCann, who didn’t get to play baseball at all last year, suffering an ACL injury during basketball season.

  • Hurricanes overcome slow start to dominate Penguins

    The Pittsburgh Penguins are heading to the playoffs for an eighth straight year.
    Barring an epic collapse, a Metropolitan Division title is all but clinched.
    What happens after that, however, is anybody’s guess.

  • Grapepickers top Cards in six

    The Cochranton and North East baseball teams shifted some schedule around and were able to open up the 2014 season on Tuesday.
    Unfortunately for the Cardinals, it wasn’t the season opener they were hoping for. North East took an early lead on its home field and added to it late to pick up a 12-0 win non-region action.

  • NeilWalker.jpg Walker’s homer lifts Pirates over Cubs 1-0

    Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Neil Walker understands not everybody is going to be a fan of Major League Baseball’s expanded replay system, which threatens to slow down a sport that already struggles to be played with any sort of urgency.
    Funny, there weren’t many critics to be found on Monday at PNC Park.
