College football action will return to the Tri-States this Saturday in Canton, Missouri! That's where Culver-Stockton College will face Evangel University at Paulton Stadium. The 2 teams will square off in their season and conference opener with a lot of emotion in the air this weekend. That's because last season the Crusaders beat the 'Cats at Tiger Stadium in Ozark, Missouri by just 2 points. That 16-14 setback has been on the minds and hearts of most of the Wildcats all week long as the squad has carefully prepared for their Heart of America Athletic Conference opponent. The WGEM Sports Cam rolled to "The Hill" earlier today to check in on the Wildcats and to get a little insight on Saturday's battle on the turf.
The Raiders of Quincy Notre Dame and the Blue Devils of QHS returned to the prep fairways earlier today to resume their battle that started on Tuesday at Westview. The Ryder Cup format match was held at Spring Lake Country Club and once again there was a real Red, White, and Blue spirit in the air as well. When the action came to a close, it was QND winning 5.5 to 3.5 over QHS. The two day total for the two teams gave the Raiders the edge, 10.5-4.5.
In the majors, the Cardinals traveled to Pittsburgh this evening to open up a 5 game series against the Pirates. We'll have an update on the National League contest on the diamond from PNC Park. The Cards and the Reds currently trail the first-place Cubs by 5.5 games in the N-L Central.
