Crunch Time


Gloucester Daily Times

---- — Terrific Terrier

Gloucester’s Clare Pleuler continues to make a name for herself on the Boston Univesity women’s soccer team this fall.

The sophomore midfielder, who was named to the America East All rookie team as a freshman in 2012 and led Gloucester girls soccer to its most successful season in 2011, has appeared in all nine games for the 5-3-1 Terriers starting five while recording a team high two assists.

Starting in goal

Rockport’s Keady Segel continues to be the starting goal for the Boston College men’s soccer team and he has thrived.

The junior goal keeper sports a 3-1-2 record averaging just 1.07 goals allowed per game fro the 3-2-2 Eagles. He has also recorded a pair of shutouts.

GP Returns

The Grand Prix of Gloucester is back at Stage Fort Park this weekend with events running from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The 15th Annual cyclocross race will feature the top cyclocross racers in the country.

Building character

Union High School Football coach Mike Labrum thought his football team did not have enough character. So the coach of the Roosevelt, Utah school took drastic measures.

Labrum suspended the entire team over lack of character citing incidents such as cyber bullying and cutting class.

“We felt like everything was going in a direction that we didn’t want our young men going,” Labrum told the Deseret News. “We felt like we needed to make a stand.”

QB Change

Apparently Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman’s abysmal performance against the Patriots last week was enough for the coaching staff to make a change. Freeman has been benched in favor of 6’6” rookie quarterback Mike Glennon.

Tampa Bay figures it doesn’t have much to lose at 0-3.
