  • Kaneland can’t contain DeKalb duo Feb 4, 2014 11:33 PM
    On most nights, Kaneland coach Brian Johnson would expect a victory when his team puts up 70 points. However, the Knights ran into a sharpshooting DeKalb team Tuesday night. The host Barbs hit nearly 60 percent of their shots from the field, including a stellar 8-for-14 effort from 3-point range. Senior John Pruett tried to keep Kaneland in contention by tallying 20 of his game-high 26 points in the second half, but DeKalb held off a late surge to claim a 76-70 Northern Illinois Big XII East decision.

  • Batavia runs all over DeKalb Nov 1, 2013 11:52 PM
    Batavia coach Dennis Piron wants to put an end to talk about last year, when his Bulldogs’ failed to get past the first round of the football postseason playoffs. Piron had to endure at least a minute of flashbacks Friday night, because that’s about how long it took for DeKalb’s Dre Brown to bust out for a 69-yard touchdown run to put the visiting Barbs up 6-0 in the Class 6A playoff opener. After that, it was all Batavia in a 48-6 romp. The Bulldogs scored on each of their first six possessions, with senior halfback Anthony Scaccia leading the way with four touchdowns and a season-high 201 yards rushing on 14 carries.

  • Huntley suffers tough loss to DeKalb Oct 26, 2013 8:01 PM
    The winds of fate were unkind to Huntley’s boys soccer team Saturday afternoon. It didn’t take long for DeKalb coach Brent McIntosh to determine which direction his team would head after winning the opening coin toss prior to the Class 3A regional championship clash. “When we won the toss, our plan was to definitely take the wind,” said McIntosh. “We felt like that might have been a little bit of a 12th man advantage for us. I felt like we wanted to make a statement in the opening half that it was going to be an 80-minute battle.” When DeKalb’s Stephen Darko stole the ball from a defender and sent a right-footed blast into the net with 19:27 remaining in the opening half, the Red Raiders (21-3-1) knew they were in for a long grind. Darko, a transfer from East Aurora, came off the bench to provide what turned out to be the game’s only goal during the third-seeded Barbs’ 1-0 victory over top-seeded Huntley in DeKalb.

  • Balaned Kaneland bounces DeKalb Oct 5, 2013 12:35 AM
    While DeKalb’s offense clearly revolved around standout halfback Dre Brown, Kaneland employed a more versatile attack. Knights senior quarterback Drew David spread the wealth in a 330-yard, 2-touchdown passing performance as four different receivers finished with over 64 yards. Isaac Swithers and Nate Dyer added rushing touchdowns and combined for 136 yards on the ground as Kaneland secured a playoff berth with a 35-12 Northern Illinois Big 12 East victory in DeKalb.

  • DeKalb storms past Vernon Hills in second half Sep 1, 2013 11:13 AM
    It was an all-around tough start to the football season for host Vernon Hills on Friday night against visiting DeKalb. Not only did the Cougars have to endure a nearly two-hour lightning delay before the game finally started, but they also saw a 10-0 lead late in the third quarter quickly slip away after one key turning point.

  • Belletini’s big effort helps Warren bounce Barbs Jun 1, 2013 7:27 PM
    Finally, a team brought in pitchers who could shut down the powerful Warren offense. The DeKalb Barbs have an abundance of quality pitching, which was evident after 3 innings of action in Saturday’s Class 4A sectional title game in Crystal Lake. At that point, the Blue Devils had one ringing single off the bat of cleanup hitter Sam Belletini, and that was it. DeKalb was up a run. The Barbs seemingly had figured out a way to shut down the Warren offense, except for the aforementioned Belletini. And in this case, it turned out to be a heck of an exception. She followed up a key DeKalb error in the fourth inning with a 2-run blast to left field and Warren (26-6) earned its first supersectional berth with a 6-1 win over DeKalb.

  • Kaneland repeats conference title May 16, 2013 8:58 PM
    Kaneland has decorated its left-field fence with softball decals featuring the names and numbers of its senior players. The Knights surely did it as a way to honor those seniors, though those big, oversized yellow softballs served a second purpose for Allyson O’Herron — target practice. The Kaneland shortstop, who was brilliant in the field all day, continued her hot hitting at the plate by lining a double off her name on that left-field fence in the Knights’ 4-0 victory over DeKalb.
