CHAMBERSBURG, Pa - It was the stuff that a good great-taste-less-filling debate is made of. The question, in this case, is did outstanding defense or lackluster offense cause Chambersburg and Cedar Cliff to combine for a paltry 73 points? Even the coaches couldn't agree after the Trojans limped to a 43-30 Mid-Penn Commonwealth victory Tuesday. "There was a lot of defense out there tonight," said Cedar Cliff coach Mark Zerbe. "We didn't want to get into a run-and-shoot game with Chambersburg.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. Chambersburg set an early tone in its Mid-Penn Commonwealth matchup with Cedar Cliff on Saturday afternoon, but a flurry of turnovers and mental lapses changed that tone in a hurry. The Trojans threw four interceptions, fumbled once and committed seven penalties to help Cedar Cliff to a 14-12 victory at Shippensburg University's Seth Grove Stadium. "We made too many mental mistakes," Chambersburg coach Shawn Kimple said. "I wasn't disappointed with our effort one bit, but we've got to figure out how to eliminate the mistakes.

Week 7 has brought along some good games, some great games and some bad games.

The Titans dominated most of the game, leading 32-7 at the end of the third. It seemed like the game was over, right? Nope.

It's now Week 7 in the NFL and this week's games couldn't have been better! There was a near-record-breaking field goal, an overtime win and two teams still undefeated. In Atlanta, the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Falcons. The Falcons' quarterback Michael Vick had not thrown more than two touchdowns in a game in his career. This game, however, Vick threw for four touchdowns, three of which were thrown to tight end Alge Crumpler. The other one was thrown to wide receiver Michael Jenkins.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg girls basketball coach Brad Rideout found positives in the Trojans' near-collapse against Cedar Cliff - probably because it was a near-collapse and not a total one. After falling behind by as many as 17 points in the third quarter, the Colts threw a huge scare into Chambersburg, cutting the lead to two twice. But behind the clutch shooting of sophomore Logan Lentz and the inside play of senior Teshia Carter and sophomore Allie Rife, the Trojans earned their first win of the season, 69-62 on Friday night.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately: "Hey, where are all the Ravens' fans now? Go Colts!!!!" "To the Hagerstown caller who wants to draft 20 to 100,000 registered Republicans to fight the war in Iraq. OK. Democrats control Congress, do it. First, change age of enlistment, raise some taxes to care for our familles while we are away. This is the first liberal-minded idea I have heard that attempts to control the situation rather than run. " - Falling Waters, W.Va.

Week 12 draws to a close for the NFL, and a Super Bowl-winning team drops out of the playoffs this year, the third team of defending champions to do so in six years. I'm talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers. The biggest game of this week was between Pittsburgh and the Baltimore Ravens. Pittsburgh needed this win to even think about the playoffs. The Ravens' defense, ranked second in the NFL, wouldn't allow it. The Ravens sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger nine times, intercepted him twice and recovered a fumble.

Had he lived a few more weeks, this would have been a big day for Richard Mackereth. He and his friends would be watching the Super Bowl in the basement of his Noland Drive home in Hagerstown. It was there, surrounded by all the comforts of his man cave - flat-screen TV, two recliners and two couches, a full-size refrigerator and memorabilia from his favorite teams - that he watched sports of all kinds. His longtime friend and best man, Dave Benner, for years joined Richard every Sunday to watch NFL games during the season.
