Winamac soccer team ties with Lakeland


---- — Winamac soccer team ties with Lakeland

PLYMOUTH — Winamac’s boys soccer team recorded its second tie at the Blueberry Tournament on Monday.

The Warriors tied Lakeland Christian Academy 3-3 and are 1-3-2 on the season.

Winamac fell behind 1-0 about midway through the first half but stormed back behind two goals from freshman Tyler Hintz to lead 2-1 at halftime.

Lakeland briefly tied it at 2 early in the second before Hintz completed the hat trick for a 3-2 lead that the Warriors held until Lakeland got a PK with about eight minutes remaining. A couple late close calls by both teams came up short and the game ended 3-3.

“We got caught napping on their first goal. It was the same thing they ran all game off of their punts, and we didn’t react the way we needed to,” Winamac coach Mark Eber said. “After that, Tyler really stepped up and we got some really good looks up front. I’m very proud of the kids. We really rode a core group of players through these last couple of games and they responded.”

Bears get TE Rosario from Cowboys

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears have acquired tight end Dante Rosario from the Dallas Cowboys for a seventh-round pick in next year’s draft.

Dallas picked up Rosario during the offseason, and he was among five tight ends on the team’s original 53-man roster.

Rosario is entering his seventh season and could be playing for his fourth team since the start of 2011. He has 99 catches for 1,106 yards and eight touchdowns in 91 career games. The 28-year-old, a former fifth-round pick by Carolina, has started 26 times.

To make room for Rosario, the Bears waived tight end Kyle Adams on Monday.

Raiders mum on starting quarterback situation

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders are gradually solidifying their starting lineup for the season opener. They aren’t quite ready to announce their starting quarterback.

Coach Dennis Allen said Monday that he will not disclose whether Terrelle Pryor or Matt Flynn will start the season opener at Indianapolis until game time for “competitive” reasons.

Allen has said the starter will be the quarterback who is best able to move the team and score points. In the preseason, that clearly was Pryor.
