Local College Sports Update

The East Central College athletic teams were able to record victories in a number of sports over the weekend. In a way you could say the Falcons tamed the Cougars as each victory came against a school with a Cougar mascot. A busy sports schedule had all three of the Falcon teams in action.

ECC Men’s Soccer (5-4) was able to move above the .500 level for the season with victories against the Kishwaukee College Cougars 5-1 and St. Charles Community College Cougars 2-1. The Falcons cruised to victory over Kishwaukee and a won tightly contested match against rival St. Charles for a crucial NJCAA Region 16 victory by scoring two great goals.

ECC Women’s Volleyball posted a victory against the Clinton Community College Cougars in the Southeastern Community College Tournament. The Falcons downed Clinton in three straight sets by scores of 25-21, 25-22, 25-17. ECC dropped other matches in the tournament to Indian Hills, Butler and Southeastern.

ECC Softball has a tough fall exhibition schedule playing mostly four year schools to get exposure for sophomores hoping to transfer. The Falcons played two tight contests against the Missouri S&T Miners and just fell short 2-0 and 5-3.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
