DELPHOS — St. John’s and Lima Senior battled to a 1-1 draw in girls soccer action Saturday at the St. John’s Annex.

The Lady Blue Jay (0-2-2) score came from sophomore Carleigh Ankerman — off a lead pass from classmate Maria Giambruno-Fuge — at 32:28 of the first half.

Scoring for the Lady Spartans (0-2-3) was senior Kayleigh Twining (assisted by Rosario Montano) at 23:57 of the second half.

Shots on-goal were few and far between: the Lady Jays had six and Lima Senior seven.

“Both defenses were pretty solid; there weren’t many openings either way,” St. John’s coach Katrina Smith said. “It seemed as if most of the match was played within 15 yards or so of midfield. I don’t know if it was because both teams have so many younger players that they were just a little scared to pull the trigger or not, or take that extra dribble or make that extra pass.”

St. John’s sophomore Breece Rohr look to stay ahead of a group of runners during the Wapak Night Meet on Saturday night. She finished 9th overall with a new PR time of 21:50. Also setting a new PR in the girls race was Sam Stevenson. For the boys, Curtis Pohlman led the way with an 11th-place finish with a time of 18:07. In the junior high girls race, Caroline Kopack finshed 2nd overall with Josie Schulte finishing right behind her in 3rd place. “We ran fairly well with everybody either setting a new PR or very close to setting one,” St. John’s head coach Steve Hellman. “This is a fun race for the kids because the race is held under the lights at one of the parks in Wapak. It is something different in that the boys did not run until 9 p.m., so that is a little later than they are use to running but they handled very well. The next 3 Saturdays we will find out where we are at as we will be in three of the bigger meets we run in all season.” (Photo Submitted)

PITTSBURGH — The Cincinnati Reds likely envisioned themselves in the thick of a pennant race as the calendar turned to September. Yet, they're five games under .500 after injuries wreaked havoc on one of baseball's more talented rosters.

Even Johnny Cueto, one of the game's best pitchers, hasn't been immune to the tough times endured by the Reds this season.

On Sunday, Cueto overcame an early jolt to earn his 16th win and Chris Heisey hit two home runs, including a tie-breaking shot in the ninth inning, as the Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2.

CLEVELAND — Rex Grossman lost his tutoring gig with the Browns.

The veteran quarterback was released Sunday by Cleveland, leaving starter Brian Hoyer and rookie backup Johnny Manziel as the only QBs on the Browns' roster.

Grossman signed with the Browns as a free agent on Aug. 12, brought in because of his experience running coordinator Kyle Shanahan's offense. Grossman and Shanahan spent four seasons together in Washington and one in Houston. Grossman was able to help Hoyer and Manziel, who struggled with Cleveland's new schemes throughout training camp the preseason.
