Kane wrestling fans enjoyed a long night on Thursday in the Wolvesâ€™ Den. Eleven varsity matches followed 10 middle school matches, along with eight middle school exhibition matches. The varsity Wolves trailed 18-9 at one point in the match with Clarion, but the home team took seven of the final nine matches to pull away with the 46-30 win.
Birds of prey have always been a fascination of mine. Just to drive down the road and get a glimpse of a red-tail hawk sitting on a branch, is a rush for me. Why do I get excited about a hawk sitting on a branch you might wonder. Itâ€™s because the hawk just isnâ€™t sitting there doing nothing he, or she, is actually hunting. For a hawk, or most birds of prey, making a kill almost daily is a must for their survival.
Last yearâ€™s PIAA runner-up Johnsonburg showed Friday nightâ€™s crowd in the Wolves Den that the 2014 version is a darn good team. The Rams ran out to a big lead early and rolled to a 69-30 win.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Kane Lady Wolves squandered an early 12-point lead Friday night and allowed the Ramettes to get back into the swing of things by halftime but a resilient Kane squad regrouped with a key run in the third quarter to clinch a 47-38 road win in Paper City.
"We are quick and we have a lot of speed but sometimes it's just not under control," said Kane head varsity girls basketball coach Dave Kiehl following the win. "That's what happens, some turnovers and defensive lapses and [Kocjancic] had a decent amount of her points during that spread so that's what was killing us."

I am writing this on a very cold, blustery day just before Thanksgiving. I was out early this very morning in a rather calm, partly sunny beginning of the day. By mid-afternoon the wind picked up and snow squalls had begun to increase across the area. Whatâ€™s new about this, I calmly asked myself, as I fought the gusts of wind while filling my bird feeders. This is typical northwestern Pennsylvania weather in late November. One minute a snowstorm, the next, a sunny end to the day.
