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.

LeBron James led the way for Cleveland with 27 points. The Cavaliers played most of the game without Kevin Love who was sent to the locker room in the first quarter after having his shoulder wrenched in a tussle with Boston's Kelly Olynyk.

Washington and Houston can also advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs today with a win today. The Wizards are home to the Raptors with a 3-0 lead while Houston is playing at Dallas with a 3-0 lead over the Mavericks.

UNDATED (AP) -- It's Game 6 in two NHL playoff series today. First up, Minnesota is playing host to St. Louis with the Wild leading the Blues 3-2. If St. Louis takes today's game the seventh and final game will be played Wednesday on the Blues' home ice.

The Canadiens top the Senators by the same 3-2 margin with Game 6 tonight in in Ottawa. If the Sens win to force a seventh game it will be played Tuesday night in Montreal.


UNDATED (AP) -- The White Sox finished off the Royals in the conclusion of a game they started on Friday. Avisail Garcia hit a tiebreaking RBI single with two out in the ninth inning as the Sox got the win 3-2. The game was suspended Friday night by rain after eight innings. David Robertson pitched the ninth for the win.

-- Tampa Bay has won five straight. The Rays beat the Blue Jays 5-1 as Chris Archer pitched two-hit ball over seven scoreless innings. Brandon Guyer provided all the offense with four runs batted in. The 3-2 Archer became the first American League pitcher to go four starts within one season without giving up an earned run since Zach Greinke (GREHN'-kee) did it for Kansas City in 2009.

-- Rookie Addison Russell doubled with the bases loaded and the Chicago Cubs held on for a 5-2 victory and a sweep of their rain-shortened series against the Reds. Cincinnati, which has dropped three in a row, went 0 for 20 with runners in scoring position during the two games against Chicago.

The injuries occurred after Wainwright broke from the batter's box on a fifth-inning popup.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed right fielder Yasiel Puig (yah-SEEL' pweeg) and reliever Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list.
