The AML opens divisional play this week after three weeks of AML North vs AML South. The 2-1 Kane Wolves will host the 3-0 Brockway Rovers on Friday night in what appears to be a contest of two closely matched teams.
The Rovers have dominated the first three teams on their schedule, defeating Cameron County in their season opener by a score of 42-8, then beating Otto-Eldred 42-6, and last week jumping out to an early 35-7 lead to Sheffield before sending the Wolverines home with a 35-21 loss.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Kane Lady Wolves gave the home team fits Thursday night in the serve-receive statistics category in a 3-1 (25-21, 25-17, 21-25, 25-12) win over the Johnsonburg Ramettes.
Kane had little trouble in the first two games against the Ramettes before a hiccup in the third game sidetracked the visitors. The Lady Wolves regrouped quickly, however, to clinch the decisive fourth game for the win.
Kaneâ€™s seventh- and eighth-grade girlsâ€™ basketball teams both won in their home openers on Wednesday. The seventh-grade girls won in the first game of the afternoon, defeating the young Lady Wolverines by a score of 14-10, followed by the eighth-graders' 32-3 drubbing of Sheffield.
Coach Mary Espinâ€™s seventh-grade squad evened their record at 1-1 with the win. Trinity Clark led Kane with six points, followed by Amber Carlson with four. Gina Marconi and Mackenzie Witherell chipped in two points each for the Lady Wolves.
