SIBLEY, Iowa -- It was a happy homecoming in Sibley Friday night, as the host Generals of Sibley-Ocheyedan High School utilized a pair of impressive third-quarter drives and earned a 19-7 Class 2A, District 1 football victory over rival Spirit Lake. Trailing 7-0 after the first quarter, the Generals (2-2, 2-0) controlled most of the remaining three periods of action and scored 19 unanswered points to send the orange and black clad fans home with smiles.

WORTHINGTON -- There are a variety of ways to tell that hunting season is around the corner. You can look at a calendar or watch the leaves starting to change. Temperatures that start to close in on the freezing mark are also an indication.

The victory keeps Worthington (7-1, 2-1) in contention for one of the top three spots in the league standings, moving the Trojans a half-game ahead of the fifth-ranked (Class AA) Huskies (14-1, 1-1).

LOON LAKE -- Getting a well-balanced performance from all five scoring runners -- especially from its lead duo of Meredith Hentges and Emily Turner -- the Windom/Southwestern United girls' cross country team finished a solid second in the KKOJ/KRAQ/Subway Invitational Thursday, hosted by Jackson County Central at the Loon Lake Golf Course. Blue Earth Area was even better balanced, as the Buccaneers put all five of their counting runners between eighth and 13th -- giving them first place in the 10-team meet with a low score of 52 points. The Eagles, however, tallied an impressive score of 64
LOON LAKE -- Jackson County Central took three of the top four places, four of the first nine and five of the top 18 Thursday, as the Huskies dominated the team segment (by 42 points) of their own meet -- the KKOJ/KRAQ/Subway Invitational at the Loon Lake Golf Course with 36 points. While the Huskies were impressively winning their second consecutive meet title (JCC had won last week's Worthington Turkey Trot), the race for individual honors narrowed from a three-person battle to a duel between JCC's Matt Kocak and Worthington's O.J.
WORTHINGTON -- The pheasant roadside counts are out and the numbers are either really good or really bad depending on your point of view. Over all the pheasants counted declined about 25 percent. That's bad, but the numbers are still at or above the 10-year averages, and in my book that is really good. What all this means is that the pheasant-hunting season is at hand. Pheasant opener is Oct. 11 and runs until Jan. 4, 2009. The ending date used to be late December and was changed to Jan. 1, but now they have changed that again to end on a weekend.

JCC (8-0, 1-0), ranked seventh in the latest Class AA state rankings, won Game 1 and later rallied from a 2-1 deficit to beat the defending Class A state runner-up and now second-ranked Eagles (8-2, 0-2) in front of a frenzied crowd that created an electric environment. "There was a tremendous atmosphere in here
