The Todd Silfiesâ chapter of the Kane Wolvesâ football story began with a bang on Friday night as they battled to a 35-13 win over visiting Sheffield.
The Wolves jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter against the Sheffield Wolverines and saw the visitors cut the score to 14-7 midway through the third quarter.
The Kane players regrouped, however, and responded with 21 straight points before Sheffield scored a touchdown with no time on the clock to give Kane the 35-13 win.
It was like staring down the barrel of a loaded gun.
Thatâs what our brave volunteer firefighters must have thought Wednesday during an 11-hour emergency at the scene of a chemical tanker truck rollover in the heart of Kane.
âWe never know what weâre getting into,â Tim Holt, chief of the Kane Volunteer Fire Department, said in commenting on the harrowing experience. âVolunteer firefighters put their lives on the line for the community. Theyâre always âright thereâ when theyâre needed even though they know there are risks.â
