NEO Sports Insiders SWC Week 3 Power Rankings

first_img Related Topics Week three of SWC play concluded last night.  Here are the NEO Sports Insiders SWC Power Rankings.1) Avon (3-0) – The Avon Eagles are having an impressive season and look to be the favorites to win the SWC for the second consecutive season.  The Eagles have impressive wins this season but none more impressive than beating Merritt Island in Florida week one.  Avon have outscored their opponents this season 82-29.  Last night the Eagles beat Avon Lake 31-6.2) Midview (3-0) – Midview have adjusted very nicely to life after Dustin Crumm.  The Middies dominated North Olmsted last night 42-6.  Connor Wolfe ran for 115 yards on just 13 carries while Sean Higley threw for five touchdowns.  If any team can knock off Avon, Midview has the best chance of all these teams.3) Olmsted Falls (2-1) – Olmsted Falls nonconference win over Brecksville 28-18 is extremely impressive.  Olmsted Falls lost to Avon in what was anticipated to be a close game, this was not the case as Olmsted Falls got blown out at home 31-7 last week.4) Berea-Midpark (2-1) – Berea-Midpark’s offense has been absolutely explosive this season.  The Titans have scored 169 points in 3 games led by Junior Quarterback Trevor Bycznski and Runningback Bryce Agnew.  The defense has struggled this season giving up over 30 points in two of the three games they’ve played this season.  The Titans’ offense can dominate any defense in the SWC.5) North Olmsted (2-1) – Fresh off a beating from Midview the Eagles’ schedule doesn’t get any easier as they have Avon next week.  North Olmsted got a big win over Avon Lake week two.  North Olmsted’s defense has allowed less than 20 points in two of their three games.  The Eagles should finish middle of the pack in the very competitive SWC.6) Amherst (3-0) – Amherst’s record looks good on the surface.  If you dig a little deeper though you will notice that the two SWC teams the Comets have played are North Ridgeville and Lakewood who are both 0-3.  Amherst has a very big test this week against Midview.  If they can win this game against Midview they will move way up in these power rankings.7) Avon Lake (1-2) – The Shoremen were one play from being 2-1.  In week two the Shoremen lost in overtime to North Olmsted and turned the ball over three times inside North Olmsted’s 20 yard line.  Avon Lake lost to Avon yesterday in a rivalry game 31-6 in a game that Avon dominated.  It looks like it is going to be a down year for Avon Lake.8) North Ridgeville (0-3) – The Rangers have been the most competitive of the three 0-3 teams in the SWC.  In week one North Ridgeville lost a heartbreaker to North Royalton 24-21.  The Rangers proceeded to get blown out their next two games only scoring 7 points over those two games.9) Lakewood (0-3) – Lakewood have allowed less than 40 points in two of their three games.  Obviously, that is not a great accomplishment but it is much better than Westlake’s defense.  Lakewood went 0-10 last season and it does not seem like they will be much better this season.10) Westlake (0-3) – Westlake’s defense has been unbelievably horrible.  The least points their defense has allowed in a game this season is 47.  They have given up 161 points in only three games.  That comes out to 53.7 points allowed per game.  Just one year after making the playoffs, it looks like it will be a rough year for the Demons.

Soldotna Chamber Designs New Visitors Center, Looks for Investors

first_imgHe says there is a large meeting room incorporated into the preliminary design. The Chamber is in the process of creating a working group of select local individuals to begin looking for stakeholders and sponsors for the new project. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Soldotna Chamber of Commerce is working on a preliminary design for a new Visitors Center on the “Davis Block property”. When discussions of the new facility began there were ideas of making it a convention center too, but Manley says that has changed… He estimated this new design has three times as much space for Visitors Center exhibits compared to the present one. Last August the Soldotna City Council granted the Chamber a five year window of time to plan a new facility and secure funding for it on that parcel. Chamber Board President Steve Manley… Manley: “Part of the issue there is you need a lot of space for that kind of thing and a lot of space takes a lot of money to build and in this environment, scaling back kind of makes sense and then if we build it to where it can maybe be expanded at some point later down the road when a full-on convention center makes sense then that’s the approach that we’re going to take to the design.” Manley: “It’ll  be a two story building at about 10,000 square feet and it will be adjacent to Soldotna Creek Park with access to the park level on the top floor. And then the first floor will be an entry from the parking lot with some office space and then a stairway up to the second level that’s at the park level with exhibit space for the Visitors Center.”last_img read more

Molynes buoyed by memorable debut

first_imgAll the build up to the first Monday night game of the 2019-20 Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season was around Portmore United. The defending champions were supposed to begin their title defence with a resounding result and goals aplenty against a team in their first season in the nation’s top flight. Easy win guaranteed. Molynes United got that script alright. They just placed it in the trash and wrote their own.The club is in high spirits, and why wouldn’t they be? They, after all, outclassed the champions 3-0 in their league debut at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.It was a comprehensive win that has club President Herman Cruickshank beaming. It was more rewarding for him that the predictions surrounding his club’s impending defeat in their opener was silenced emphatically. “We are more than pleased as it is now,” he said speaking to The Gleaner yesterday. “[Portmore United] are the defending championships and previous headlines in the paper stated that it’s just a matter of how much goals Portmore would have scored on Molynes. So we pointed that out to the players. We showed them what was said in the papers. So that kind of helped motivate the players.”Ryan Brown scored a brace in the win, including a brilliant effort for the first goal in the 25th minute, and Devon Hodges added one late in the second half for a result that no one could have anticipated. But Cruickshank is keeping the team’s feet firmly to the ground, warning that it was just the first step in a long season, if they plan to remain a top-flight club come March.“We are trying to keep them level. We are sure that this match has lifted their spirits high, so we have to keep them in check and not let them go off, because this is just match number one. But it has definitely heightened their confidence, because to come away with three points [against the] defending champions 3-0. I think 3-0 is convincing,” he said. SALARIES In addition to the result is the security that comes from securing the salaries for both the players and coaches, according to Cruickshank, which for him is one less thing to worry about as the season continues.“We haven’t attracted any big sponsors, but we managed to secure the sponsorship for the salary [for the players]. Anything else is a plus. But we secured the salaries for the coaches and players and then whatever comes next, we will use that for the operations side of the club,” he said.Cruickshank is banking on an increase in home support after their landmark Monday night game and for their first home game of the season on Sunday against The University of the West Indies (UWI) FC at 3:30 p.m..“We managed to create a home base by winning that game Monday night. We have managed to earn some respect from some fans. We trust that with that performance Monday night we can attract some more supporters,” he said.last_img read more
