OTTOVILLE — Lincolnview’s boys soccer team didn’t allow a goal over the final 50 minutes of action against Ottoville Tuesday evening.

It was the first 30 minutes where the Big Green did all their scoring against a young Lancer squad trying out a new defensive scheme. Ottoville scored six times in the first 30 minutes as they went on to post a 6-0 non-league win over the Lancers on cloudy, warm night in Ottoville.

The win moved the Big Green to 3-0-2 on the season, while the Lancers dropped to 0-3-0.

Offensively Ottoville applied pressure on the Lancer goal from the opening kick as the Big Green scored just 29 seconds into the match.

Junior Jared Fanning opened the scoring when he picked up a ball on the right side of the field, dribbled in on the Lincolnview net and fired a shot at the far corner to beat a diving Lancer keeper for a 1-0 lead. Four minutes later, Fanning made it 2-0 when he settled a ball in the box, split a pair of Lancer defenders and fired a shot past the keeper at the 35:34 mark of the contest.

“We really wanted to come out and really establish ourselves right away,” Ottoville coach Eric Gerker said. “Our passing game, our possession game. We were able to exploit some of the things they were doing on defense with some of our passing and cuts off the ball. We got a lot of good looks early and we were able to finish six of them.”

Tow paces Lancers to Wayne Trace title

GROVER HILL — Senior Bayley Tow paced the Lincolnview boys cross country team to the title of the Wayne Trace Invitational held Tuesday at Grove Hill Park.

The Lancers — with Alex Rodriguez garnering third and Trevor Neate eighth — outpaced Fairview 34-82.

Ottoville was 12th, with Eric Von Sossan finishing 41st and Cody Kemper 60th.

St. John’s did not have a team score but had its top runners Curtis Pohlman, 12th, and Nick Pohlman 47th.

On the girls side, Lincolnview — behind Anna Gorman’s 10th and Abbie Enyart’s 15th — was sixth.

The Lady Blue Jays — topped by Breece Rohr’s eighth-place finish and Baylee Lindeman’s 43rd — and the Lady Big Green — Alena Looser was 23rd and Elizabeth Luersman 38th — did not have team scores.

“The girls ran very well with three of them setting personal records on a hot evening on a tough course which I hope will lead to even better times as it gets colder and on some faster courses,” St. John’s coach Steve Hellman submitted. “For the boys, the times were a little slower than Saturday but they were about what I expected for the course and heat.”

PARAMUS, N.J. — Tiger Woods is leaving swing coach Sean Foley after four years and no majors.

Woods announced on his website Monday he will no longer work with Foley, the Canadian whom he hired when his game was at its low point following the upheaval with his marriage. The announcement came one day after another Foley pupil, Hunter Mahan, won The Barclays.

"I'd like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship," Woods wrote. "Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him."

COLUMBUS — A week after the loss of 3-year starting quarterback Braxton Miller, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is going through final preparations for the Buckeyes' opener on Saturday against Navy.

He says his team is ready.

"Oh, yeah. If you have good players, a good team (then you're excited)," he said, pausing before joking, "I'll fake it sometimes, if you don't have a good team.

"But I can tell you this: I think we got a good team."

BEREA — Even by the Browns' low standards and they don't get much closer to the bottom of the NFL barrel, Saturday's 33-14 exhibition loss to St. Louis was dreadful.

Atrocious. Upsetting. Yuck.

For those in attendance, it was let's-get-out-of-here bad. For TV viewers, it was turn-the-channel or go-to-bed bad.
