  • Mustangs' rally can't overcome mistakes

    What to make of Manitou Springs? A sloppy, turnover-prone team, one that falters in the spots it flourished during last season's run to the state title game? Or a team that dominates the line of scrimmage, so much so that it can put teams away with an unwavering and predictable run attack? On Friday, in front of a spirited crowd at...

  • Air Force men's soccer ties Navy, women lose

    The Air Force women’s soccer team suffered a painful lesson on Friday night. Do not let a team you are dominating hang around. North Dakota State took advantage of the Falcons’ missed opportunities in regulation to escape with a 2-1 win in double overtime at Cadet Soccer Stadium. The Air Force men (0-0-1) also saw some good scoring...

  • Colorado College men's soccer coach Richardson starts 50th season

    In 1966, Horst Richardson had no idea he would be entering his 50th season as the Colorado College men's soccer coach this Friday. "I really didn't," he said while the Tigers readied for their season opener against Occidental College at 7 p.m. "I still had the option to become an Air Force pilot but that didn't work out in part because I met...

  • Texans' D.J. Swearinger avoids fine for hit on Broncos' Wes Welker

    D.J. Swearinger talks too much. He is too cocky. His confidence doesn't match his resume. All were among the Broncos' complaints about the Houston Texans' loquacious defensive back last week. When it comes to assessing fines, the NFL doesn't calculate popularity. Swearinger was not fined for the hit that left Wes Welker concussed last...

  • Rams hope to surprise Buffs in opener

    DENVER - Colorado State is coming off a bowl win and returns a starting quarterback who set the team's single-season passing record last season. Still, coach Jim McElwain considers his team the vast underdog heading into the season opener against Colorado on Friday night. The Buffaloes are a Pac-12 team, McElwain pointed out, with more money,...

  • Tigers in Europe, AFA commit, Eric Rud, NCHC officials award, Carlo, Howe

    This Air Force commit's journey to the academy proved to be a long one. Former CC assistant Eric Rud hired two new assistants for the St. Cloud State omwne's hockey program.

  • Brock Osweiler, Broncos end preseason on high note against Cowboys

    ARLINGTON, Texas — Brock Osweiler won't play a meaningful snap for the Denver Broncos until Peyton Manning gets hurt or retires. The third-year quarterback is closer to ready for that role than he's ever been. Osweiler led four scoring drives in an efficient final tuneup for a third year behind Manning, and the Broncos beat the Cowboys 27-3...

  • Fountain-Fort Carson puzzled by surprising Lakewood

    Fountain - Fountain-Fort Carson wasn't sure what to expect from a Lakewood team that notched just three wins last season. The Tigers delivered a whole lot more than what the Trojans bargained for, holding F-FC to 100 yards total as Lakewood won 26-6 at Guy Barickman Stadium on Friday. The Trojans had one running back finish with more than...

  • Sky Sox are no match for Storm Chasers

    The Omaha Storm Chasers pulled to within 1.5 games of Oklahoma City as they defeated the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 7-2 in the series opener. Both the Chasers and the RedHawks have four games remaining to decide the American Conference North Division crown. Omaha starter Aaron Brooks spun seven scoreless innings with seven strikeouts, tying a...

  • Boys' soccer: TCA shows it belongs with class of 4A by beating Cheyenne Mountain

    There's a couple surefire ways to make yourself unwelcome as the new kid in class. In Class 4A soccer, it's when you beat the defending champions early in the season and then celebrate on their field. TCA doesn't mind the role of outcast though, as long as it comes with winning. Thursday, Titus Grant's shot deflected off the goalkeeper and...

  • Change is in the cushion for Air Force cornerbacks

    Need any more proof that Air Force has changed its defensive philosophy? Just look at the personnel. In as a starter is Jordan Mays, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound converted safety who is perhaps the strongest defensive back on the roster. Out, for now, is Gavin McHenry, a swift track standout who started all 12 games last year. In short, muscle won...

  • Air Force opens men's soccer season with first home against Navy since 1984

    An oddly long drought will end Friday when Navy's men's soccer team travels to Air Force for the season opener. The Midshipmen haven't played at Air Force since 1984. "It's should be a great environment, a great way to open up," Air Force coach Doug Hill said. The game will be one of two in the season's first three contests against service...
