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.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A ruling from U.S. District Judge Richard Berman could come today in the Tom Brady versus Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') Deflategate case. Berman said yesterday after meeting with Brady and Goodell that no settlement had been reached and that he might offer his judicial decision today or tomorrow or sometime this week.

Berman will have to either affirm or throw out Goodell's decision in July to uphold Brady's four-game suspension. The NFL concluded the quarterback colluded with two Patriots ball handlers to deflate footballs to gain an edge in a 45-7 victory over the Colts. The NFL Players Association has accused the league of handling the discipline unfairly for Brady, who has denied any role in the scandal nicknamed "Deflategate."


UNDATED (AP) -- It's one of the great sports rivalries. The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. It all began back in New York City before the clubs moved west in the 1950's and continues today. Last night they opened a three-game series in L.A. with the Dodgers winning 5-4 in 14 innings. The win put the Dodgers 4 1/2 games in front of the second-place Giants in the National League West.

This evening the star of the World Series last fall, Madison Bumgarner, gets the ball for the Giants against former Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke (GREHN'-kee). Bumgarner starts the day with a record of 16-6 with 192 strikeouts, while Greinke has the lowest earned run average in baseball at 1.61.

With an eye on the playoffs, the Giants are also 5 1/2 games back of the Cubs for the final wild card berth. This evening Chicago is home to the Reds.

Pittsburgh ace Gerrit Cole is looking for his 16th win of the season tonight. Cole, who is 15-7 with a 2.44 ERA, was originally set to pitch Wednesday but was moved up a day so he can start Sunday night against NL Central-lead St. Louis. The Pirates start the day five games back of the Cards in the NL Central. Tonight Cole and the Bucs are in Milwaukee against the Brewers, while St. Louis is hosting a desperate Washington team.

The Nationals currently find themselves out of playoff contention as they trail the Mets in the NL East by 6 1/2 games. New York is home to the Phillies tonight.

The tightest race in baseball continues to be the American League East. Both of the top two teams, the first-place Jays and the Yankees, lost last night. The Blue Jays are once again home to Cleveland this evening while the Yankees are in Boston. The Indians, by the way, have won their last six games to put themselves back in the AL wild card hunt as they trail the Rangers by four games now.

The rest of the day's card has the Diamondbacks in Denver facing the Rockies in an afternoon game, followed by a night contest, Baltimore home to Tampa Bay, Miami at Atlanta, the Twins hosting the White Sox, Seattle at Houston, the A's at home to the Angels and Texas at San Diego.
