  • Soccer: Lady Knights drop three...

    The Marion County Lady Knights opened their week of play with a 6-1 loss to the Western Hills Lady Wolverines (6-4) on Sept. 15.

    Lady Knights Coach Derek Cissell appeared upset at half time.

    “We didn’t show up ready to play,” he said after the game. “We came out lackadaisical and before we knew it we were down three goals.”

  • Bad duck hunt is still OK

     Since the past week was the early wood duck/teal season (Sept. 17-21), nothing would do except give it a shot! (I know, that was week.)
