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.

TENNIS-AUSTRALIAN OPEN

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Serena Williams won her 19th Grand Slam title, continued her unbeaten run in six Australian Open finals and extended her decade-long domination of Maria Sharapova with a commanding 6-3, 7-6 (5) win on Saturday night.

Williams, coughing frequently and still affected by a recent cold, returned from a 13-minute rain interruption in the first set and fired an ace to start a run of six straight points. She was broken while serving for the set but broke Sharapova for a third time to clinch it.

The 33-year-old Williams, the oldest winner of the Australian women's title in the Open era, clinched the match on her third match point with an ace.

She is now second only to Steffi Graf on the list of major winners in the Open era. Graf has 22 victories.

TENNIS-AUSTRALIAN OPEN-MEN'S DOUBLES

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Fabio Fognini (FAH'-bee-oh fohn-YEE'-nee) and Simone Bolelli (sih-MOH'-nay boh-LEL'-ee) became the first all-Italian team to capture a Grand Slam men's doubles title in more than 50 years after beating French pair Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-4, 6-4 in the Australian Open final on Saturday.

The last Italians to win a men's doubles title at a major were Nicola Pietrangeli and Orlando Sirola at the 1959 French Open.

Fognini and Bolelli had come close before, reaching the semifinals at the 2011 U.S. Open and 2013 Australian Open.

Mahut and Herbert were playing in just their third event as a combination and had never won a match together before the Australian Open.

They were attempting to become just the sixth all-French team to win a Grand Slam doubles title, and the first since 2004.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks barely made the NBA playoffs last season, capturing the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with a 38-44 record. The Hawks already have passed last year's win total, thanks to an 18-game winning streak that puts them atop the entire league at 39-8, 1 1/2 games ahead of Golden State.

Paul Millsap scored 21 points and Al Horford had 17 as the Hawks downed the Trail Blazers 105-99 to extend their franchise-record winning streak. Millsap and Mike Scott hit 3-pointers to give Atlanta a 97-91 lead. The Hawks trailed after each of the first three quarters before outscoring the Blazers 36-25 in the final period.

The Hawks' winning streak began after a loss to Milwaukee on Dec. 26.

The Warriors entered the week as the NBA's top team before dropping back-to-back games, including Friday's 110-100 setback at Utah. Gordon Hayward scored 26 points and grabbed 15 rebounds while the Jazz held Klay Thompson to 12 points. The Jazz also got a huge lift from the bench with 17 points from Trevor Booker and 15 from Trey Burke.

In other NBA action:

-- Toronto blew a 17-point lead in the second half before Amir Johnson made the tiebreaking basket with 41 seconds left to help the Raptors complete a 127-122 win at Brooklyn. DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points, Lou Williams chipped in 25 and Johnson had 24 in the Raptors' fifth straight win.

-- Eric Gordon scored 28 points and New Orleans halted the Clippers' six-game winning streak by downing Los Angeles 108-103. The Pelicans shot 13-for-25 from 3-point range to pull out a victory while Anthony Davis sat out with a sore left groin.

-- Rick Carlisle has his 600th career coaching victory after the Dallas Mavericks put together a ridiculous 37-2 run in the second half of a 93-72 rout of Miami. Charlie Villanueva scored 20 points for the Mavericks, who trailed by 16 in the third quarter before snapping a four-game skid.

-- Cleveland has a nine-game winning streak after Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for 63 points in a 101-90 verdict over Sacramento. Love scored 16 of his team-high 23 points in the first quarter, Irving finished with 21 and James added 19 in his return from a sprained wrist.

-- Eric Bledsoe provided 23 points and Goran Dragic (DRAH'-gihch) had 21 as Phoenix held off Chicago 99-93. Bulls guard Derrick Rose also has 23 points but missed 15 of his 23 shots.

-- Donatas Motiejunas (doh-NAH'-tahs moh-tee-YOO'-nuhs) scored 10 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter of Houston's fourth straight win, 93-87 at Boston. Motiejunas also had 12 rebounds as the Rockets improved to 17-7 on the road, best in the Western Conference.

-- Michael Carter-Williams had a triple-double with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to lead Philadelphia's 103-94 win over Minnesota.

NBA-ALL-STARS-COUSINS

UNDATED (AP) -- NBA commissioner Adam Silver has chosen Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins to replace injured Lakers guard Kobe Bryant on the Western Conference All-Star team. Cousins will play in the showcase for the first time and become the first King to appear in an All-Star game since Brad Miller and Peja Stojakovic (PAY'-zhah stoy-AH'-koh-vihch) in 2004. Western Conference coach and Golden State bench boss Steve Kerr will decide who replaces Bryant in the starting lineup.

NFL-STATE OF LEAGUE

PHOENIX (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') held his Super Bowl news conference today and touched on a number of topics as the league wraps up a very tumultuous season.

He says that even if no competitive advantage was gained, the New England Patriots could be hit with increased penalties if the league investigation finds they violated rules by deflating footballs in the AFC championship game.

Goodell says at his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference Friday: "We have rules. We're a league of rules."

The league appointed lawyer Ted Wells to look into what happened to the Patriots' footballs during the 45-7 victory over the Colts that sent New England to the Super Bowl.

Goodell described his league and himself as having addressed missteps on difficult matters such as domestic violence and being ready to move on. He brushed aside a question about whether there are conflict-of-interest problems with paying those who head up "independent" investigations like the one involving Ray Rice.

The commissioner adds that the league has not looked at any specific team that might want to move to Los Angeles.

NFL-COACHES

PHOENIX (AP) -- Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says it will be star cornerback Richard Sherman's decision whether to play in Sunday's Super Bowl if his pregnant girlfriend goes into labor with the couple's first child sooner than expected.

Carroll said during a joint news conference with New England coach Bill Belichick that family comes first and "if (Sherman) is faced with that decision, we'll support him."

Carroll's comment regarding Sherman was the biggest news to come out of the final media availability with the coaches as both were extremely complementary of the other. Patriots coach Bill Belichick says preparing his team to face the defending Super Bowl champions has been a huge challenge, adding that the Seahawks do so many things well on so many levels.

NFL-MANNING

PHOENIX (AP) -- Denver quarterback Peyton Manning says he hasn't decided if he will return next season, saying he's taking some time to assess some things about his future. Manning said before the playoffs that he would play another season, but he admitted to his uncertainty after the Broncos were beaten by Indianapolis.

New Denver head coach Gary Kubiak (KOO'-bee-ak) and Denver vice president John Elway have urged Manning to take his time before making a decision.

TOP-25 MEN'S BASKETBALL-SCHEDULE

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona was the lone top-25 men's basketball team in action on Friday, and the sixth-ranked Wildcats picked up their 34th consecutive home win by holding Oregon State to 28 percent shooting in a 57-34 silencing of the Beavers.

T.J. McConnell had a career-high eight steals, seven points and six assists, while Brandon Ashley delivered a team-best 12 points for Arizona. The Wildcats also held Beavers leading scorer Gary Payton II to six points on 3-of-13 shooting

NHL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins were just minutes away from a shutout loss in New Jersey. Instead, they climbed within one point of the Metropolitan Division-leading New York Islanders.

Simon Despres (see-MOHN' deh-PRAY') scored at 2:21 of overtime to complete the Penguins' comeback in a 2-1 triumph over the Devils. The Pens trailed 1-0 until Chris Kunitz (KOO'-nits) knotted the score with 3:11 left in regulation.

Pittsburgh outshot the Devils 43-14 in winning for only the second time in its last seven games.

Also on ice:

-- Colorado knocked off Nashville 3-0 as Semyon Varlamov (SEHM'-yahn vahr-LAH'-mahv) made 23 saves for his fourth shutout of the season. The Avalanche improved to 8-3-3 in their last 14 games and prevented the Predators from pulling into a first-place tie with Anaheim in the Western Conference.

-- St. Louis coughed up a 2-0 lead before Kevin Shattenkirk scored the only shootout goal in the Blues' 3-2 victory at Carolina. St. Louis appeared poised to blow out the Hurricanes when Ryan Reaves and David Backes (BAK'-ehs) scored in the first 3:25, but the Hurricanes made the Blues work for their fourth consecutive victory and ninth in 10 games.

-- The Blues and Chicago are two points behind the first-place Predators in the Central Division after Patrick Kane furnished two goals and an assist in the Blackhawks' 4-1 win over the Ducks. Patrick Sharp had four assists to help the Hawks improve to 2-1 on their seven-game road trip.

-- Chris Higgins had a goal and an assist as Vancouver topped Buffalo 5-3 to move into sole possession of third place in the Pacific Division, one point behind San Jose. The Sabres extended their franchise-worst losing streak to 14 games.

NHL-BETTMAN-UNIFORM ADS

VANCOUVER (AP) -- NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says advertisements could be included on jerseys at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, calling it a valuable opportunity. None of North America's four major professional sports leagues currently place ads on their jerseys, but the practice is widespread elsewhere in the world. Bettman said it won't be happening any time soon in the NHL.

MLB-NEWS

UNDATED (AP) -- Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce has avoided salary arbitration and agreed to a one-year, $3.7 million package. Pearce hit .293 for Baltimore last year and set career bests with 21 homers and 49 RBIs.

Also in the majors:

-- Free agent pitcher Alexi Ogando (oh-GAHN'-doh) and the Boston Red Sox have reached agreement on a one-year deal, pending a physical. The 31-year-old Ogando went 2-3 with a 6.84 ERA in 27 relief appearances for Texas last season, missing much of the year because of an injured right elbow. Ogando made his major league debut in 2010 with Texas and was an AL All-Star the next season.

-- The Atlanta Braves have dealt right-handed pitchers David Hale and Gus Schlosser to Colorado for minor league catchers Jose Briceno and Chris O'Dowd. Hale pitched 45 games for the Braves last season, going 4-5 with a 3.30 ERA.

-- The New York Yankees and right-hander Scott Baker have agreed to a one-year minor league contract. Baker had Tommy John surgery in 2012 and mostly pitched out of the bullpen last year for the Rangers.
