The Kane High girls soccer team certainly had its chances.
But a late rally fell short in a 3-2 loss Wednesday to Port Allegany at the Kane field.
In Part I of my story of the mysterious Army base near Seneca Lake, N.Y., I was trying to find out how I could gain access to this huge decommissioned former military base with its large herd of white deer. The base, which is still not open to the public, was used during World War II to house munitions. You know, like bullets and bombs. After the war it was rumored to house nuclear weapons, which the government never admitted. While building this base, a few whitetail deer were fenced in and hardly noticed.
It wasn't a win, but veteran Kane High volleyball coach Judy Kessler still had plenty of kudos for her young team Tuesday after a nip-and-tuck match with Elk County Catholic (ECC).
RIDGWAY â€“ Ridgway boys soccer won for the second time in a row as the Elkers defeated Kane 4-1 on a hot Tuesday afternoon at Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School.
Ridgway coach Todd Voss said the Elkers held together well with the temperatures near 90 degrees and with the Elkers shorthanded due to injuries, at one point having no subs off the bench in the second half.
Ridgway exploded for four goals in the second half Monday en route to a 6-0 victory over Kane in a girls soccer match in Kane.
For the second straight week, the Kane Wolves were balanced on offense and used a smothering defense to overwhelm their opponents. Last night, in the season opener at Paul R Miller Stadium, the Wolves rolled over the Port Allegany Gators by a score of 54-0. Kane jumped out to a big 34-0 lead at the half and never looked back.
The Kane Wolves football team soundly defeated the Sheffield Wolverines last Saturday afternoon, showcasing a well-rounded offense and a tenacious defense on their way to posting a 34-6 win. Their opponent this week will be the Port Allegany Gators, last yearâ€™s District 9 A Champions and a PIAA state semifinalist.
The Kane girlsâ€™ soccer team fell to a deep West Forest team by a score of 4-2 on Thursday afternoon in Kane. The Lady Wolves fell to 1-1 on the young season after a 3-1 victory over Smethport on Tuesday.
ST. MARYS â€“ In their opening match of the season, the Kane Lady Wolves took the St. Marys Dutch to five sets but fell just short of an exciting win.
The Dutch took the first set 25-20 but the Wolves bounced back for a 25-17 win.Â The momentum carried into set three where the Wolves won 25-19.Â In a back and forth contest to the very end, the Dutch took set four 25-23 and then won the final set 15-11.
The Elk County Catholic Crusader cross country squad opened their dual meet season with a 23-32 loss to the visiting Kane Wolves on Tuesday afternoon at Benzinger Park. The Lady Crusaders ran unopposed as Kane did not have enough runners to field a team.
