Morning Sports – 11/6/13

The Ohio Bobcats fell to the Buffalo Bulls last night, 30-3. The Bobcats and Bulls fought a defensive battle in the first half, with Ohio trailing 7-3 at the intermission after a Josiah Yazdani field goal. However, Buffalo dominated the second half. After a blown call resulted in a safety against Ohio, the Bulls took off, scoring 26 unanswered points en route to a blow out victory. Buffalo running back Branden Oliver was dominant, rushing for 249 yards on the evening. The Bobcats will look to bounce back as they head to Bowling Green next Tuesday. The game can be heard on Power 105 with pre game at 6 with the Bobcat Insider and kick at 7:30.

The Columbus Blue Jackets were toppled by the Ottawa Senators last night, 4-1. The Sens jumped out to an early lead, scoring twice late in the first period. In the third, Columbus cut the lead to one on an RJ Umberger power play goal, but midway through the period Chris Neil scored to put Ottawa up by two again. Another late goal put the game well out of reach and the Jackets fell. Columbus will now host the New York Rangers on Thursday night. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 6:45 and drop of the puck at 7.

Elsewhere in the NHL, Phoenix edged Vancouver, 3-2 in a shootout. Minnesota toppled Calgary, 5-1. Carolina snuck past Philadelphia, 2-1 in overtime. Edmonton ousted Florida, 4-3 in overtime. St. Louis clipped Montreal, 3-2 in a shootout. Washington dominated the New York Islanders, 6-2 and Dallas bested Boston, 3-2 in a shootout.

The Cincinnati Bengals signed defensive tackle Kheeston Randall to take Geno Atkins’ roster spot yesterday. Randall was drafted in the seventh round by Miami two years ago and played in 12 games. He had eight tackles and can play both tackle and end. The Bengals battle the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 11:30 and kick off at 1.

According to a report, the New York Yankees have inquired on the availability of Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips. Phillips is on the trading block after struggling in the second half of the season. Phillips has four years and $50 million left on his contract, but the initial price for Phillips is reportedly too high.
