The Glenwood Lady Demons took care of business last night at home defeating Delta in a three game sweep.


The Glenwood Demons take a final bow before the home crowd tonight as they take on the Montezuma-Cortez Panthers at Stubler Memorial Field. Kick off is set for 7 o’clock with pregame coverage beginning at 6:45 on KMTS. The top ranked Rifle Bears head to Delta to battle the Panthers at 7. Roaring Fork hosts Lake County, Aspen takes on Basalt and Coal Ridge will try to upset Grand Valley in Parachute.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Oregon’s Avery Patterson was incredulous when asked about the No. 2 Ducks looking beyond Colorado this Saturday and toward USC next weekend. The junior safety echoed coach Chip Kelly’s insistence that every game is a Super Bowl for undefeated Oregon.
Both Kelly and Colorado coach Jon Embree are keeping their teams focused on the immediate future for different reasons. Oregon (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12 ) is angling for another national championship bid, while the Buffaloes (1-6, 1-3) are trying to remain positive against a big opponent in the midst of a disappointing season. But on the surface it certainly doesn’t look good for Colorado. Oregon has won 10 straight games, second only to Alabama with 11 straight. The Ducks have scored at least 42 points in each of those wins.

DETROIT (AP) – The World Series has moved. The Tigers and Giants are in Detroit now for game 3 tomorrow night. San Francisco took a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series last night with a 2-0 win.

LOUISVILLE (AP) – There’s a top-25 college football game tonight. In Louisville, the 16th ranked Cardinals are playing host to the Bearcats of Cincinnati in a Big East game. The Cards are unbeaten in seven games while the Bearcats suffered their first loss of the season after five wins last week to the Toledo Rockets.

UNDATED (AP) – The preseason AP men’s basketball poll came out this afternoon and the No. team is Indiana. The Hoosiers top Louisville, Kentucky, Ohio State and Michigan. In case you didn’t notice, that’s three Big Ten teams in the top five, Indiana, Ohio State and Michigan.

NEW YORK (AP) – If there’s any hockey at all this season in the NHL it won’t be played until sometime in December, at the earliest. The league has canceled all its games through the end of November because of the ongoing labor dispute. That amounts to 326 regular-season games so far, or more than a quarter of the season.

GENEVA (AP) – The Tour de France titles vacated by Lance Armstrong will not be awarded to anybody else. The International Cycling Union says the seven championships stripped from Armstrong for doping will not be awarded and that all “affected riders” in the case should return their prize money.
