When two evenly matched opponents meet, there's always the potential for late game drama. Wednesday afternoon in Hometown that was exactly the case.

The Tri-Valley Bulldogs used a four-run seventh inning scoring barrage to defeat host Marian 7-3 in an important Schuylkill League Division 2 showdown.

This contest was a back and forth affair from the onset.

The Colts got out to the early 1-0 lead in third after Luke Stawick reached base on an error. Shortstop Mike Cataldo then singled and Stawick scored on a throwing error back to first.

The 2013 NFL Draft is now just hours away, and make no mistake about it, today is a great day to be a football fan. It's even a greater day to be a draftnik! However, this year's draft is a different kind of draft than what we're used to seeing. It may not be a "sexy" draft with elite prospects like Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III (last year's two top picks), but it is a draft that promises to offer more drama than we've ever seen because absolutely nobody seems to know what direction these teams are going in.
