UPDATE — Streak grows, De Soto loses 5-0 at Ottawa
September 22, 2005
The De Soto team’s ugly losing streak grew by one Thursday evening. The Wildcats fell at Ottawa, 5-0. De Soto has now lost four straight after opening the season 4-0, and have absorbed three-straight shut outs.
Frehe, Wildcats champs at Rim Rock
September 22, 2005
Morgan Frehe zipped up and down the hills, over the bridges, along the crest and finally down the slope. As she crossed the finish line to win Saturday’s girls blue division race and propel her Wildcats to the team title at the Rim Rock Farm Classic, she may have earned more than a medal and a trophy.
QB time share could be key versus Eagles

Quarterback Jake Morse swears he isn’t stressed. He doesn’t feel pressured or worried either. And maybe that’s the sophomore’s best trait, De Soto coach Brad Scott said. Morse started the first three games of the Wildcats’ season, but surrendered eight snaps to senior and former-starter Neil Erisman in Friday night’s 22-19 win over Central Heights.

Pass rush leads De Soto past Central Heights
September 22, 2005
Dustin Ester was stopped at the one-yard line as time expired and De Soto coach Brad Scott admitted his staff was simply out-smarted Friday night when the Wildcats battled Central Heights. And had it not been for a gutsy fourth-quarter comeback that preserved De Soto’s perfect season, all of that might have mattered.
The Fly Route

What’s luck anyway? After Kansas State narrowly avoided a loss at Marshall Sept. 10, all anyone could tell me was how lucky the Wildcats were and how much they didn’t deserve the win. Some have said the Chiefs were lucky to escape from Oakland with a win, lucky that Randy Moss didn’t get his hands on the ball. Plenty of people have told me how lucky the Denver Broncos were, knocking off preseason AFC West favorite San Diego at home, 20-17. But I don’t buy it.

Tears of joy, sadness part of vet’s day
September 22, 2005
It was 7:58 a.m. I realized I had left my cell phone outside in my car overnight. What was I thinking? Maybe I was assuring my subconscious self of a good night’s sleep. Who knows, but when I peered through my window as the dawn’s light allowed, I could see I had a call from a client. I quickly unlocked the door and dialed the client directly.
Sales tax extension offers little value to De Soto
September 22, 2005
