The Athens County Game of the Week returns to Power 105 tonight as Nelsonville-York heads to Alexander for an Athens County clash. The Buckeyes offense put up over 80 points last week in their opener at Federal Hocking and will now look to get things off to a hot start in conference play. The Spartans have Braden Jones now back in the lineup and Alexander captured their first win on Tuesday. The game can be heard on Power 105 with pre game at 7:15 and tip off at 7:30.
Also, tomorrow night the Athens Bulldogs hit the hardwood for the first time this season as they take on the Chesapeake Panthers. The Bulldogs are young again this season, but are very talented and hungry to capture the TVC-Ohio title. However, their first test is Southeastern Ohio Power Chesapeake. The Panthers have a combined 46-4 record over the past two seasons. The game can be heard on Power 105 and 970 WATH with pre game at 7:45 and tip off at 8.
Elsewhere in Athens County tonight, Trimble hosts Belpre and Federal Hocking welcomes Eastern.
In area high school girls basketball action last night, Nelsonville-York topped Wellston, 65-51. Athens handled Meigs, 64-35. Belpre bested Federal Hocking, 69-51 and Vinton County defeated Alexander, 70-36.
The Cincinnati Bengals signed kicker Josh Brown yesterday with kicker Mike Nugent dealing with an injury. Nugent suffered a calf injury while attempting an onside kick in practice. Cincinnati held a tryout on Thursday for the position. Brown is a 10-year veteran and was 21 of 28 on field goals with the St. Louis Rams last season. To make room for Brown, the Bengals released center Jeff Faine. Faine was signed earlier this season when Kyle Cook suffered an ankle injury and had to miss the first seven games. Faine has struggled with injuries this season and Cook is expected to be activated before Sunday’s game against Dallas. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 11:30 AM and kickoff at 1.
In NFL action last night, Denver handled Oakland, 26-13.
NHL labor negotiations came to a screeching halt yesterday after three days of talks aimed at reaching a new collective bargaining agreement. The league rejected the union’s latest proposal and pulled several elements of its own off the negotiating table. According to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, all items offered to the Players’ Association in the past week have been rescinded. It is unclear when the two sides will meet again.
On your radio dial tonight, it’s the Sports Fan presented by J&K Contracting. That’s on 970 WATH and it’s from 6:06 to 7.
