Brockway rolls by Kane in 44-7 rout

October 29, 2011

BROCKWAY - The Kane Wolves travelled to Brockway to take on the Rovers on a good night for high school football.
The Brockway Rovers used a strong running game and got some great blocking up front to open up holes for the running backs. They were able to collect two first downs and put the young defense on their heels early. Then with just a little under nine minutes to go in the first quarter they got back to back nice runs culminating in the first score of the game with a big 43-yard touchdown. The PAT was good.

Kane loses last game of season to Bradford

October 27, 2011

The Kane Lady Wolves ended their season with a loss to Bradford in a three-game sweep, giving them a 7-9 record.  
In the first set, the Lady Wolves struggled to gel as a team, allowing Bradford to take a huge 17-0 lead before getting a point.
“The girls were just sort of out of sync in this opening set," said Kane head varsity volleyball coach Judy Kessler. "No matter what they did, it was a struggle. You have games like that and unfortunately when it’s against a strong team like Bradford, they’re going to take advantage of it and score a lot of points.”
