sports Vikings trounce No. 1 Holy Spirit 62-46

Atlantic High turned a close game into a rout by going on a 16-3 run in the second half to defeat the No. 1 Holy Spirit boys team 62-46. This big one was not your usual nail-biting game that has been the hallmark of the rivalry. From the beginning the game had a different feel.

Spirit was leading 27-23 in the first half with almost two minutes left when Coach Gene Allen had his team play stall ball. What was going on? Only Coach Allen (a Holy Spirit grad) knew the game plan that would work to perfection. The plan was to take Spirit out of its usual fast-paced offense that had successfully led to a 9-1 record. As a result, Spirit had no offensive rhythm throughout the game.

To the editor:

As someone who has been following the public-safety discussion in the city over the last year or so, I firmly believe the city needs to continue to seek new ways that will lead to long-term cost reduction for the taxpayers. This is not to say that these cost reductions should be at the sake of public safety. However, the city cannot just simply continue with status quo and not expect a significant financial impact on the residents.
