JOHNSONBURG â€“ A runaway defeat turned into a victory for Coudersport girls basketball Friday night.
Coudersport rallied from a 16-4 first-quarter deficit to take a 44-43 win over Kane at the Johnsonburg Tip-Off Tournament at Johnsonburg Area High School.
Emily Morey hit a short jumper with eight seconds left to put the Lady Falcons ahead. Kane had one final chance but could not get a fluent possession together and did not get a possible game-winning shot off in time.
The Kane Wrestling team had one of their best seasons in recent history last year, sending seven wrestlers to the AA Northwest Regional Wrestling tournament and having a PIAA Champion (Evan DeLong) and third-place state finisher (Cody Blankenship). Unfortunately for coach Mike Swartwood, only one of those regional qualifiers is returning this season, Austin Hulings. Swartwood has limited lineup options this year as he has only 11 wrestlers on the roster.
Kane girlsâ€™ basketball coach Dave Kiehl thinks this yearâ€™s team has a good mix of size and experience. Kiehl, beginning his seventh year at the helm of the Lady Wolves, lost two players to graduation and his starting point guard to a move outside of the district, but is adding some good young players that will see extensive minutes on the court.
Matt Gasbarre is in his second season as head coach of the Kane boysâ€™ basketball team. Gasbarre led the 2013-2014 Wolves to a 7-16 record and a spot in the playoffs. The Wolvesâ€™ season came to a close with a heartbreaking 44-43 loss to Karns City in the District 9 AA quarterfinals.
The Sheffield Wolverines used a big third quarter to propel themselves to a 66-53 victory over the Kane Wolves. The Wolves' season opener was pushed back from last Friday to Wednesday night after the extended football season had Wolvesâ€™ head basketball coach Matt Gasbarre holding tryouts just a week ago.
The Kane Wolves wrestling team opened their dual meet season in Sheffield on Tuesday night with an exciting 42-27 win over the Wolverines. Kane coach Mike Swartwoodâ€™s squad gave up four forfeits to the hosts but won six of seven contests wrestled on the mat. More impressively, all six of the Wolves to wrestle a match won by fall.

Dallas (9-4) 41
Chicago (5-8) 28
Dallas used the 3rd quarter to put this game out of reach. After a tightly contested
first half the score was 14-7 in Dallasâ€™ favor. Dallas was able to use an early
second half turnover to score a 24 yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Cole
Beasley. They used great field position to tack on 2 more touchdowns before the end
of the 3rd quarter to make the score 35-7. Chicago made the game somewhat close
thanks to a 21 point fourth quarter of their own, but it was too little, too late.
The Kane Lady Wolves opened their 2014-2015 season on Monday night against the Elk County Catholic Lady Crusaders in the Wolvesâ€™ Den. The young Lady Wolves tied the game at 10-10 early in the second quarter but the visitors went on a 13-4 run on their way to a 50-27 win.
On Monday the 13th of October I once again found myself on the road to the beautiful Benezette valley in search of elk. I can never get enough of this area, because as a nature photographer, the possibilities are endless. Iâ€™ve seen bear, fox, bobcats, deer, and very impressive scenery on almost every trip to Benezette. Oh, did I mention an occasional elk or two? This trip was to be a little bit different, as we had a rather large group of ten. My friend Tom, the deer whisperer from Olean, N.Y., and his wife had brought their family down to see the elk, and they needed a guide.

last long as Detroit responded with 3 touchdown drives in the second quarter.
Detroit WR Calvin â€śMegatronâ€ť Johnson scored 2 of those touchdowns. Detroit took a
