newspaper predictions

Indy-area high school football Week 1 sectional predictions: Who ya got?

Edinburgh (1-8) at Indiana Deaf (3-3), Class A Sectional 46: Neither of
these programs have ever won a sectional title. Edinburgh 21, Indiana Deaf
16.

note:
a 1-8 team favored over a .500 team?

Let us look at maxpreps.

Edinburgh HS is ranked 13,482nd best in the nation
Indiana is ranked 13,955th best in the nation

so apparently the five-point difference reflects these rankings!

What an exciting game for the end of the season. We won 70 to 52.
Washington School for the Deaf played well and gave us a hard time. We
made a few mental errors
and had some injuries, but we fought back and won the game. Bruce Jr.
threw for 180 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 257 yards and three
touchdowns, 14
total tackles, and made one interception. Kieran V. had two rushing
touchdowns and one receiving touchdown. Our senior players played well for
their last game. Luis
made two rushing touchdowns and received 94 yards and three touchdowns. He
made 12 total tackles. Antonio played well on defense because he made the
WSD quarterback
hurry twice and made 11 total tackles.   Abe and I are proud of our boys.
They improved from the beginning of the season to the end of the season.
We are waiting
for the results of the Minnesota Academy State for the Deaf vs Oklahoma
School for the Deaf game on Oct. 26.  If MSAD wins, we will win the GPSD
championship.  If
OSD beats MSAD, we will be Co-Champions with Oklahoma

Rhode Island soccer

We opened our 2019 ESDAA Division 2 Soccer Tournament at NYSSD-Rome with a
game against Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf in the first round. MKSD
and RISD has become very familiar with each other as we’ve played each
other seemingly in every soccer and basketball tournament over the last
two years!

MKSD was able to build a 2-0 halftime lead. We were able to strike first
in the second half and was poised to steal the momentum and tie the game
up — but we couldn’t convert on our opportunities and defeated ourselves
as MKSD added on three goals near the end of the game to win 5-1.

RISD  – 0  1  – 1
MKSD – 2  3  – 5

Jose S. – 1 Goal
Daury A. – 7 Saves

Saturday 10/19

A new day and a new opportunity for our team to finish their season strong
with two guaranteed games today. The coaches challenged the team to do
this and earn that 5th place trophy, matching their results from last
year.

Our team came out strong and scored two goals to seize control and
momentum of the game. We would match our intensity in the second half and
added on one more goal for good measure, winning 3-0 to earn our first
victory of the season!

DSD –  0   0  – 0
RISD – 2   1  – 3

Jayden E. – 2 Goals
Yasmin S. – 1 Goal
Daury A. – 8 Saves, 1 Shutout

5th/6th Place Game

Coming off our first victory of the 2019 season – we wanted to close out
our tournament strong and that meant earning our second victory over a
familiar rival, NYSSD-Rome. The two schools have met up in the tournament
in the 5th/6th place for the third consecutive year and the series was
tied 1-1.

Rome struck first with a goal — but we wouldn’t let ourselves become
defeated as we were able to equalize the game before halftime. The second
half saw both defenses dig in and shots on goal were at a premium.
Regulation ended in a 1-1 tie, so we went to a three-ball shootout per
ESDAA Tournament bylaws.

Rome scored on their first attempt and we missed on our first. Rome missed
their second attempt and we were able to tie up the score on our second
attempt. Our goalie saved the ball on Rome’s third attempt… and our
young 6th grader struck the ball beautifully on our third attempt… and
it found the back of the net! We won the game and the 5th place trophy!

RISD –     1   0  – 1
NYSSD –  1  0  – 1
Three-Ball Shootout: RISD won 2-1

Jayden E. – 1 Goal
Daury A. – 5 Saves

Tournament Results: 5th Place of 8 Teams
Tournament All-Star: Yasmin S.

Tuesday 10/22

Rhode Island played out our last game of the season at American School for
the Deaf on their Senior Day… it’s always tough especially after the
ESDAA Tournament weekend, but our team were prepared and would try their
best. We borrowed two players from ASD as we were short on eligible
players, but the kids tried their best!

ASD would build a 3-2 halftime lead, which was a very tightly contested
first half. After we swapped goalies, American pulled away with four goals
in the second half.

RISD –  2   0  – 2
ASD –   3   4  – 7

Jayden E. – 1 Goal

RISD Season Record: 2-8
Next Game: Season Over

St Mary’s volleyball

The Lady Bisons faced off yesterday in their closest game yet against the
Global Gators. The girls showed how much they’ve grown this season with
some great volleys
and hustle throughout the game. Cami Cole lead the team in scoring with 15
service points and 5 aces. She was followed closely by Julia Bronneberg
with 12 points
and 3 aces and Aleyshka Rivera with 12 points. Julia also had a great game
at the net with 6 attacks and her first kill of the season. Emma Foster,
Elise Watson and
Brionna Zuppa all contributed amazingly on the floor and the girls refused
to give up right until the very end. Unfortunately, they just missed
pulling off a win
and will strive for their second of the season this Thursday Against
Central Baptist in their last home game of the season. We hope to see you
come out to support
us one last time.

Sets:

24-26

10-25

25-19

Record:

1-8
