Franklin Soccer routs Murphy ... again

In a rematch of a game played on Aug. 19, which the Panthers won 9-0, the Panthers doubled their pleasure and defeated the Bulldogs, 9-0, in a game played on Aug. 28. The game was called in the 59th minute because of the mercy rule. Angel Chavez got the Panthers on the board in the sixth minute when he found the back of the net that was set up by a pass from Jose Lopez. Eighteen minutes later, Lopez scored on a nice set up from Gustavo Velasco. Kendrick Manning scored on a penalty kick and Uriel Rivera scored with two minutes left in the first half. The Panthers led 4-0 at halftime. In a five-minute span in the second half, the Panthers scored five times to end the game. Riggy Hernandez scored twice, Jesus Zalapa scored twice, and Jeremy Jordan scored. Chris Richards, Omar Arellano, Jordan, and Walter Perez all recorded assists.


The MCSC U12 Storm soccer team opened its Classic League fall season by defeating its first two opponents. The Storm earned the first two victories with speed and teamwork on the offensive attack, combined with swift defensive pressure at the back - a formula that makes them a top ranked team in the Western division.

The Storm treated their fans to a 2-1 win against the talented GCCSA Cobras in the home opener on Aug. 18. The Shelby squad started strong, matching the Storm in speed and intensity, and both teams found offensive combinations to enable shots on goal. The Storm scored first midway through the first half, when Juan Gomez found a seam in the Cobra defense and pushed forward to flick the ball into the corner of the net. Near the end of the half, Tito Diaz added a second point with a double strike on a ball mishandled by the Cobra goalie.


HAMPTON, Ga. - Kyle Busch proved emphatically Sunday night that he knows what to do with a lead when he gets it.

By the time he grabbed the top spot at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the first time, however, the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup picture had changed dramatically.

Busch claimed the trophy for the AdvoCare 500, beating Joey Logano to the finish line by .740 seconds. Locked into a top-10 spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Busch added three bonus points to his Chase-opening total with his fourth win of the season.

The win was Busch’s second at Atlanta and the 28th of his prolific career, tying him with Rex White for 23rd on the career victory list. And he did it in a car he labeled "a joke" early in the race.
