Game of the Week: Dwyer vs. Glades Central

Story by John Evenson / CBS 12 Sports
Our first Game of the Week of the season features a match-up that is highly regarded as the best in the east against the best in the west. Both the Dwyer and Glades Central football teams are well known for consistently producing BCS and NFL stars, and there is no shortage of talent on the teams entering this season. Both teams consider anything less than a State Championship as a disappointment.

In my eyes its a good way to start the season, says Glades Central running back Jerry Jones, because in the playoffs well be playing tougher teams than this, so its a good way to get prepared.

You know theyre gonna come to play, says Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon, because theyve got a chip on their shoulders.

That chip on Dwyers shoulder in courtesy of a 44-13 Kickoff Classic loss to Miami Central this past Saturday. The Panthers were not happy about giving up 175 yards worth of penalties, and they turned over the ball too much for their liking.

We gave up plays against Miami Central, agrees Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels, two pass plays, and were not like that. We dont usually do that, but Glades Central will exploit you in the same way.

UNDATED (AP) -- Despite the fact tonight's Lakers at Philadelphia game features the two worst teams in the NBA, the arena is sold out. The reason is tonight's game will be the last in Philadelphia for native son Kobe Bryant. Drafted straight from high school by the Lakers in 1996, Bryant has announced his retirement at the end of the current season. The Lakers enter the game with a record of 2-14 while the Sixers are winless in 18 games this season and in their last 28 games overall.

Cleveland looks to remain unbeaten at home tonight with a game against Washington. The Cavaliers are 13-4, are 9-0 at home and off to their best start in seven seasons. All that despite the fact several starters remain on the bench nursing injuries. The Wizards have lost 12 of their last 16 games with Cleveland and are 6-8 on the season.

Anthony Davis is playing in the NBA just like people expected he would when he left the Kentucky campus. Davis is the Pelicans key man with 23.9 points a game along with 10.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks. This evening the Pelicans are home to Memphis.

The remaining games tonight feature the Suns in New York to face the Nets and Dallas at Portland.


UNDATED (AP) -- Montreal tops the NHL with 39 points and tonight is home to Columbus. The Canadiens face the prospect of now playing the next four to six weeks without All-Star goalie Carey Price who will miss that amount of playing time with a lower body injury. The Blue Jackets are welcoming back center Brandon Dubinsky who missed the last game after being suspended for a game for delivering a cross-check to the head of a Pittsburgh player.

Dallas enjoys playing on the road and tonight the Stars are in Calgary. On the season the Stars have won 10 of 12 road games for the best away from home record in the league.

The Kings have been doing well of late with wins in five of their last eight games. Tonight L.A. is playing host to Vancouver.

Things have not been going as well for the Minnesota Wild. They have dropped three straight and six of seven and tonight are in Chicago to play the Blackhawks.

An eastern road trip continues for Colorado tonight. The Avalanche lost last night to the Islanders in New York and this evening they are playing at New Jersey.

Your remaining games feature the Flyers in Ottawa, the Red Wings home to Buffalo, the Panthers at St. Louis, Nashville home to Arizona and Pittsburgh at San Jose in the first of four games in the west for the Pens.
