Wide receiver Allen Robinson plans to sign with the Bears

Former Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson is planing on signing a contract worth around $42 million with the Chicago Bears. The Bears top priority in the off-season was to address the wide receiver position, which lacked overall talent with only one receiver toping 50 catches. Out of the wide receivers available Robinson is the most talented in my opinion. Robinson is under 25 years old and exploded for 1,400 and 14 touchdowns in 2015. 2016 was a down year for Robinson but, with inconsistent quarterback play from Blake Bortles you could see how Robinson's production could dip. This shows that the Bears are committed to adding more weapons for second year quarterback Mitch Trubisky and look for them to be more active as free agency progresses.

The Newman Comets take home third place at State!

The Newman Comets had a big match up Friday with the Annawan Braves to see who would move on to the state final. Unfortunately, for the Newman Comets the Braves were too much to handle. The Comets had a size advantage with Devon House standing at 6'7, but the Braves had two athletic players standing at 6'4 in Ben Buresh and Owen Landwehr who made some big plays. Landwehr finished with 19 points and Buresh ended with 12 points. The Comets struggled with fouls as Devon House and Travis Williams were in foul trouble early in the game. Williams eventually fouled out late in the 4th quarter. The Comets seemed sluggish and wore out when they took on the Braves. The grueling 61-60 victory over St. Mel and the long bus ride to Peoria could have been a factor to why the Comets seemed a bit off. Also, the three-point shooting for the Comets wasn't there. Against St. Mel the Comets shot a mind-blowing 55%. Against Annawan the Comets shot only 17%. The Comets were defeated 59-44 but there was still a lot to play for in the third place game on Saturday against Goreville. 

 

When the Comets took the court Saturday against the Goreville Black Cats they looked loose and ready for the challenge. This was a redemption game for both Gorzny and Williams who had lackluster performances against Annawan. Against Goreville Gorzny exploded for 15 points after only scoring 6 points against Annawan. Williams scored 11 points against Annawan, but was in foul trouble for the majority of the game. Against Goreville Williams scored 20 points and limited his fouls to stay on the court to lead the Comets. Devon House scored 11 points but found himself in foul trouble. This allowed Jake Terveer to have a more prominent role providing the Comets with some stellar defense and tallied 7 points to keep the Comets ahead the whole game. Also, Gehrig Koerner contributed 8 points with some key three-pointers in the first half.

 

Against Goreville the Comets never trailed. Goreville would make some make some runs to get within 6 points, but then you would blink and the Comets would push their lead back to double digits. The Comets took down Goreville 65-50 to finish third place in the class 1A state playoffs. The Comets had an amazing season and were able to go further than any other Newman squad has ever been. This year was filled with exciting games against Bureau Valley, Hall, Milledgeville, Eastland, River Ridge, East Dubuque, and St. Mel. We saw this Newman team be tested time and time again, but they always seemed to come up big in the biggest moments. Congratulations to the Newman Comets on their third place finish at state. We'll have to wait and see what next year brings for the Newman Comets

The Newman Comets are headed to State!

The game between the Newman Comets and the St. Mel Knights was the classic David versus Goliath matchup. The St. Mel squad were tall, explosive, and athletically gifted.The St. Mel squad was extremely talented and have blown out all the competition in their previous match ups. In their sectional championship they beat Chicago Douglass by 39 points. Many of the St. Mel players were above the height of 6'2 and Taeyon Neal came in at a towering 6'10. The Newman Comets did have Devon House who stands at 6'7, but only had a few other players that stood above 6'1. However, this did not intimidate the Comets and showed us all that size isn't everything in the game of basketball. 

 

House and Neal battled in the post repeatedly with the Sophomore House, who was giving up three inches to Neal, won consistently with some spectacular moves that overwhelmed the taller Neal. House led the Comets with 26 points and 13 rebounds. However, Tyriel Nelson and Deion Jackson of the Knights were able to take advantage in the paint with plays that left you in awe and with nothing to say other than wow. Nelson and Jackson combined for 26 points, but no shot was bigger than Eric Jordan's three that tied the game at 60 late in the fourth quarter.

 

With the Comets being at a disadvantage in the size department they made up for it with great outside shooting. Cade Gorzny was deadly from behind the arc going 5 for 8 and ended the game with 18 points. As a team the Comets were 10 for 18 from three. This gave the Comets an incredible shooting percentage of 55% from three compared to 23.5% for the Knights. 

 

With the game tied late in the fourth quarter the Comets were looking to take the lead when Cade Gorzny fired a deep three that was blocked, but Gorzny was able to grab the loose ball and pass the ball to House. House drove the lane and was just off the mark with his runner and the Senior Travis Williams grabbed the rebound and was fouled by the Knights. Williams was held scoreless in the first half, but found his rhythm in the second half with big scores. For Williams this was the second game in a row that he found himself in the biggest moment of the season and the biggest moment of his career. With the game on the game on the line Williams sank his first free-throw to take the lead 61-60 and his 11th and biggest point of the season. Williams then missed his second free-throw and the Knights immediately took a time out to preserve as much time as possible. With 1.4 seconds left the Knights inbounded the ball to half-court and Nelson fired a shot that was off the mark to give the Comets the win. 

 

This is the first time the Newman Comets have made it to state and were 0-2 in there last super-sectional matchups. The Comets have been battle test with an overtime win against Eastland in the regional semifinals and a thrilling three-point victory over a tough East Dubuque in the sectional championship. The quest for the elusive state title continues for the Comets this Friday with a battle with the Annawan Braves at the Carver Arena in Peoria. Game time will be at 11:15am and will be broadcast on our sister station 102.7 WZZT and our Facebook page.

Rock Falls Girls Fall to Rockford Lutheran

The Rock Falls girls basketball team came into the second matchup with Rockford Lutheran in less than a week with a win against the Crusaders. However, the results of this game were very different as the Crusaders were never in any danger of losing to the Rockets. The Rockets fell behind early and were not able to catch up.

 

Ambranett Storr was able to score at will and led the Crusaders with 30 points and 9 rebounds. For the Rockets Elise Moeller scored 14 points to lead the team. The Rockets will take on North Boone on and Rockford Lutheran will faceoff with Stillman Valley January 9th.
