Top-seeded Patriots win 3-0

1 days 9 hours ago | | | Email

By Michael Richmrichdelgazette@gmail.comFor most teams, a 1-0 lead is white-knuckling tension.For the Olentangy Liberty Patriots, who have allowed just three goals all season, a 1-0 lead is virtually insurmountable.For most of the second half it looked like senior defender Katie Best’s goal with 36:17 left was going to have to be enough, but junior midfielder Lexy Fisher and freshman defender Olivia Sensky scored late second-half goals to give them some breathing room, and the Patriots advanced with a 3-0 Division I district semifinal victory over the visiting New Albany Eagles on Tuesday night.

Right to privacy? Hardly

As if enduring the routine cat calls and doing whatever we must to “protect ourselves” against the possibility of being sexually assaulted isn’t enough, now women must also take care that no one surreptitiously takes a photo of our nether regions. It would seem that if there is any such thing as a right to privacy it would cover our private areas, in particular in cases in which we have elected to cover them with shirts, skirts or dresses.Yet, according to several...
