  • Football: Armwood 41, Springstead 0

    Football: Armwood 41, Springstead 0 SEFFNER — Armwood’s highly touted defense heard the jokes after giving up 48 points in a second-round win over Jefferson last week.

  • Column: Springstead keeping chin up as Armwood awaits

    Column: Springstead keeping chin up as Armwood awaits SEFFNER — Daniel Larusso used the crane to take out the Cobra Kai, and Jimmy Chitwood hit that jumper from the free-throw line, and Rocky beat Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago.
