Patriots shut down Rams for Super Bowl victory

ATLANTA, GA – The New England Patriots are once again Super Bowl champions after a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53 yesterday in Atlanta…
SUPER BOWL
It will go down as the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history with just 16-points combined. New England led 3-0 at half time and it was tied at 3 at the end of the third. The only touchdown was a 2-yard run by Sony Michel with just over 7-minutes left in the game.

Julian Edelman was named the game’s MVP with 10-receptions for 141-yards. The Rams offense could only muster 260 total yards as Bill Belichick dialed up a great defensive performance. The Patriots sacked Jerrod Goff four times and picked him off on the only deep drive by the Rams into New England territory.

This is Tom Brady and Bill Belichick’s sixth Super Bowl win together with the Patriots.

Of course, nearly as much is made of the Super Bowl commercials as the game itself. USA Today did an overnight poll of its readers and the top five are…

Wenatchee Wild drop a pair of weekend games

It was not such a super weekend for the Wenatchee Wild, dropping a game on the road in Penticton Friday and then another at home Saturday to Vernon…
WILD
On Friday at the Okanagan Events Centre, Penticton broke a 2-2 tie with Ryan Sandelin’s 25th goal of the season deep into the 3rd period. The Vees added another empty net goal with seconds to play to make it a 4-2 final. Chad Sasaki and Matt Goseiwski score the goals for Wenatchee.

On Saturday, the Wild was hoping the friendly confines of the Town Toyota Center would make the difference, especially on Guns N Hoses Night. But it wasn’t to be as Vernon outscored Wenatchee 2-nothing in a shootout to win 2-1.

Wenatchee got on the board late in the 1st period with the Vipers countering shortly into the second. The game would remain knotted at 1-1 through the third and an overtime to set up the shootout, Wenatchee’s 4th in the past 9 games. Arch Ecker had the call on the Wenatchee Wild Hockey Network…
