The Kane girlsâ€™ soccer team dug themselves a big hole early as they gave up two goals in the first five minutes of Monday afternoonâ€™s game with Port Allegany on the Lady Wolvesâ€™ home field. The Lady Gators took the opening kick and somehow found the back of the net in just 10 secondsâ€¦ before most fans were even in their seats. The visitors added another just five minutes after before Kane coach Robert Mosierâ€™s team began to settle down.
The Kane junior varsity football team exacted a measure of revenge on Monday night when they defeated Ridgway 28-14 at Paul R Miller Stadium. After the varsity Elkers outlasted the Wolves on Friday night in Ridgway, the junior varsity teams strapped on the helmets and played in Kane to start the Wolvesâ€™ homecoming week.
The visitors struck first when Josh Raubenstrauch ran in for a 10-yard touchdown after an interception by James Winslow stalled Kaneâ€™s promising opening drive. The failed extra point gave Ridgway a 6-0 lead with just over five minutes left in the first quarter.

HAZEL HURST â€“ Hazel Hurst residents soon will be looking for a new â€śpsychiatristâ€ť to help them deal with lifeâ€™s every-day problems.
This situation is due to the retirement of Nina Nogar, who has been the postmaster at the Hazel Hurst Post Office since May 7, 1988.
She is retiring Tuesday from her official job of postmaster and her unofficial role as the town "psychiatrist."
While handling mail has been her main job, Nogar often is asked for advice as she stands in the â€świndowâ€ť to chat with residents as they visit the rural post office on a daily basis.
