Shots took every possible path around or over the goal for the first 54 minutes of Hickman and Rock Bridge’s game .
The Bruins beat the Kewpies 2-0 on Wednesday at Cosmopolitan Park with Michael Ferguson breaking the drought in the 55th minute with his 21st goal of the season.
For most of the game between Hickman and Rock Bridge, these sounds rang louder than any crowd noise. And the crowd even had a megaphone.
After a 34-16 win against then-nationally ranked Blue Springs, Hickman (3-1) jumped up two spots to No. 1 in the Associated Press’ state high school football rankings.
Blue Springs (3-1) fell to the No. 2 spot, with Rockhurst (2-1), who defeated the Kewpies 14-7 earlier this season, rounding out the top three teams.

MU senior Angie Vo may have had trouble picking an academic major — but not a political cause. Vo, a magazine journalism major with a biology minor, is a strong activist for women’s issues.
She is involved with Columbia organizations such as the Women’s Center, Spiritual Youth for Reproductive Freedom and the Feminist Student Union. In April, she participated in the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, D.C., the largest civil rights march in U.S. history.
The goal: $10,000.
That’s how much students at Mill Creek Elementary hope to raise for their school. They won’t be reaching it by selling wrapping paper or candy. Instead, they hope to raise it by reading.
American Red Cross staffers held short information sessions this week for MU students and the public, introducing the donor recruitment and blood unit collection policies of the Homecoming Blood Drive on Oct. 12-13.
The Red Cross set up the sessions in the wake of a campus blood donation scandal during Greek Week in April, when an MU sophomore sent an e-mail encouraging her sorority members to donate blood even if it meant lying about their health conditions on donor questionnaires.
The court’s approval of a proposal by developer Stan Kroenke to form a transportation development district along Stadium Boulevard marks the pending formation of the city’s third such special taxing authority.
Circuit Judge Gary Oxenhandler on Tuesday approved the request by Kroenke’s TKG Management to form the taxing district, which plans to levy a half-cent tax on sales within its boundaries to pay for a new entrance to the Biscayne Mall site.

Chuck Martin remembers joining William H. Taft for a 100-mile race-walk in Columbia in 1977. Taft, a journalism professor then edging toward retirement, spent his afternoons walking five miles every day in Brewer Fieldhouse, but Martin figured he would be able to keep up because he was roughly 30 years younger than Taft.
“As I recall, I made 30 miles in eight hours before retiring from race-walking permanently,” said Martin, now an editorial writer at the Wisconsin State Journal.
To the backdrop of a Kerry/Edwards banner stating in bold type “Help is on the Way,” singer/songwriter Carole King triumphantly sang “You’ve Got a Friend” in conclusion to her speech supporting presidential candidate John Kerry on Wednesday morning at Columbia’s Activity and Recrea-tion Center.
King wants George W. Bush ousted on Nov. 2 and replaced with a “man that truly shares the values of the common citizen,” she said. The event was part of her nationwide campaign primarily directed at the states that could swing the upcoming election.

Marcus Woods said he has gotten rid of the redshirt-freshman jitters that caused him to struggle early this season.
The tailback had an inauspicious start on his first college carry in the Tigers’ season opener Sept. 4 against Arkansas State. With Missouri leading 21-10 in the second quarter, Woods fumbled the ball on a rush up the middle, giving the Indians possession in Tiger territory and a chance to stop Missouri from putting the game out of reach.
JEFFERSON CITY — The push to pass a constitutional amendment that would route money raised by transportation-related taxes to road construction has been largely fueled by several of the state’s top road builders, labor unions and other public-works contractors, campaign-finance records show.
Contributions totaling nearly $1 million have been made to the Committee to Improve Missouri Roads and Bridges, a pro-amendment group registered with the state government, this election cycle.
Moments after Missouri’s 48-0 win against Ball State on Sept. 18, Tigers coach Gary Pinkel said the level of competition would rise 15 notches when Big 12 Conference play begins.
When Missouri (2-1) plays Colorado (3-0) on Saturday, the Tigers will face better athletes and the defense will see their first complete offensive opponent.
Sleeping at home, showering and changing clothes are among the everyday comforts that four MU students are giving up this week to raise awareness about substandard housing. They will also try to raise $4,000 for construction of a Habitat for Humanity house.
Until Friday afternoon, Kelly Puppilo, Candace Revelle, Laura Winterscheidt and Kate Ervin — all executive board members of the MU chapter of Habitat for Humanity — are living in cardboard boxes on Kuhlman Court, in the heart of the MU campus.
