    Geneva makes history at Augsburg-Drach invite

    Through any soccer match, there are mistakes, and most are forgiven as they don’t result in anything more than a throw-in or a goal kick or just a lost possession that ends without damage. There are, of course, the other kind of mistakes, those that result in shots on-goal, dangerous moments and goals. On an afternoon when Geneva and St. Charles East battled extreme wind as well as each other in the final match of the Augsburg-Drach Invitational, one Saints defensive error led to Geneva’s Courtney Lardas receiving the ball just outside the penalty area 12 minutes before halftime.

Grant finished with a lot of points (135), 10 more than runner-up Lakes and many more than third-place Grayslake Central (87) in the 10-team field. In Jackie Randall’s seven years with the program (the last six as head coach), the Bulldogs had never won their own invite.

Then came more noise — off Simpson’s bat. The senior smashed a base hit. Two batters later, Matt Reed singled both Govern and Simpson in, and Libertyville was on its way to a 9-8 win in Glenview.

    A kitten peeks out at the Best Friends Animal Society kitten nursery in the Mission Hills area of Los Angeles. Tens of thousands of people who think they are saving abandoned wild kittens by taking them to shelters are hastening their deaths because most shelters don’t have round-the-clock staffs to care for them.

    Most wild kittens taken to shelters will be killed

    Wild kittens that will number in the tens of millions this year are starting to be born, but half of them won’t survive, an especially acute problem at overtaxed shelters forced to euthanize the millions they receive. It’s a grim reality a leading advocate calls “one of the last major problems” plaguing the animal welfare movement. Scads of good-intentioned people who discover wild litters of baby cats will take them to shelters, which are overrun with the animals from now through September. But groups that trap, neuter and release feral cats and shelters that are able to open 24-hour kitten nurseries are doing their part to stem the deaths.
