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) -- The Chicago Cubs will spend the weekend in New York or Los Angeles.

The Cubs have won the National League Division Series by belting three more homers in a 6-4 victory over the Cardinals in Game 4 at Wrigley Field. Javier Baez launched a three-run homer to put Chicago ahead 4-2 in the second inning. The Cards eventually tied it in the sixth before Anthony Rizzo smashed a go-ahead solo shot in the bottom of the inning. Kyle Schwarber provided the Cubs' ninth home run in two games to make it 6-4 in the seventh.

Manager Joe Maddon needed a lot of help from his bullpen to close it out after starter Jason Hammel was reached for three hits in three innings. Seven pitchers followed Hammel, with Justin Grimm and Pedro Strop each tossing a hitless inning before Hector Rondon closed it out.

Losing pitcher Kevin Siegrist served up the solo shots by Rizzo and Schwarber.

Steven Piscotty hit a two-run homer for the Cardinals, who failed to reach the NLCS for the first time in five seasons. Piscotty also made the final out of the series, striking out against Rondon.

It's the first time the Cubs have ever clinched a playoff series at Wrigley Field. They also moved into the championship series for the first time since 2003.

Chicago remains baseball's hottest team. The Cubs ended the regular season on an eight-game winning streak before taking four of their first five playoff games.

As a wild-card team, the Cubs will open the NLCS on the road despite finishing with a better record than the Mets and Dodgers.

The Mets are trying to close out their division series right now. New York sent rookie Steven Matz to the mound against Dodgers ace lefty Clayton Kershaw. The game was scoreless heading into the second inning.

Los Angeles needs a huge performance from Kershaw after Brett Anderson and Alex Wood combined to surrender 10 runs over the first five innings of last night's 13-7 loss to the Mets.

The two American League Division Series are on hold until tomorrow. The Toronto Blue Jays will host the Texas Rangers in a winner-take-all fifth game, and the Kansas City Royals will entertain the Houston Astros in Game 5 of that series.


NEW YORK (AP) -- A person familiar with the process has told The Associated Press that Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley's appeal hearing has been scheduled for Monday, long after the NLDS ends.

Utley was suspended two games by Major League Baseball Chief Baseball Officer Joe Torre for his rough slide in Game 2, a collision that broke the right leg of Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada (teh-HAH'-dah). Utley appealed the suspension and will be eligible to complete the series, which the Mets can close out with a victory tonight.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles police say a fan was critically injured in a fight outside Dodger Stadium following Friday night's NL division series game between Los Angeles and the New York Mets.

An officer said the victim remained hospitalized Tuesday, but few other details were available, including the person's age and gender. Officer Ricardo Hernandez said an argument between fans in the parking lot quickly escalated into violence. It wasn't clear whether those involved were fans of rival teams.

Detectives with the robbery-homicide division were interviewing witnesses and reviewing stadium surveillance footage, according to Hernandez.


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier is now a former football coach.

The 70-year-old Spurrier officially announced his resignation as head coach at South Carolina, saying it was time to leave. The decision comes after the Gamecocks got off to a 2-4 start that includes an 0-4 mark in the SEC.

It caps a half-century in which he won the 1966 Heisman Trophy with Florida, quarterbacked the first 0-14 team in NFL history, revived a moribund Duke program as a first-time head coach, won a national championship with his alma mater and led the Gamecocks to their greatest successes.

South Carolina posted three straight 11-win seasons under Spurrier after never winning more than 10 before his arrival. He went 11-2 as late as 2013, but the Gamecocks followed that with a 6-6 season that caused Spurrier to ponder retirement last winter.

Spurrier was 86-49 with the Gamecocks. He had his greatest success at his alma mater, going 122-27-1 with a national championship at Florida. Spurrier was 228-89-2 in 319 games as a college head coach.

Spurrier has been replaced on an interim basis by co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Shawn Elliott.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has confirmed that star defensive end Drew Ott will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Ott is the Hawkeyes' best pass rusher and arguably its best player. He is sixth in the Big Ten with 7.5 tackles for loss and five sacks despite being slowed by an elbow injury earlier this season.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly (KEEK'-lee) has returned to practice for the first time since suffering a concussion in Carolina's season-opening win against Jacksonville. Kuechly spent four weeks in the NFL's concussion protocol and missed three games before being cleared to return. The Panthers had a bye last week and travel to play Seattle on Sunday.

In other NFL news:

-- The Arizona Cardinals have confirmed the signing of veteran defensive end/outside linebacker Dwight Freeney, a seven-time Pro Bowl player and three-time first-team All Pro. The Cardinals inked the free agent after top outside pass rusher, Alex Okafor, went down with a calf injury in Sunday's 42-17 victory at Detroit. The team also placed linebacker Kenny Demens on injured reserve due to a torn ACL in Sunday's game.

-- The Buffalo Bills have signed free-agent quarterback Josh Johnson, two days after starter Tyrod Taylor was battered in a 14-13 win at Tennessee. Taylor was sacked four times and took several big open-field hits while nearly single-handedly rallying the Bills to score two touchdowns in the final 16 1/2 minutes. Bills coach Rex Ryan also revealed Monday that Taylor has been bothered by a nagging ankle injury since training camp.

-- The NFL has acknowledged an officiating error during final moments of Monday's game between the Chargers and visiting Steelers. Eighteen seconds were incorrectly run off the clock late in the fourth quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 24-20 victory at the San Diego Chargers, and none of the game officials noticed the gaffe and corrected it. After the Chargers hit a go-ahead field goal with 2:56 remaining, the ensuing kickoff went for a touchback, but the clock rolled down to 2:38 instead of remaining at 2:56.
