Sports Briefs for Saturday, April 27


Bearcats hits the road today for Springfield

The Grays Harbor Bearcats won’t be visiting The Simpsons, but they will get a full night’s entertainment from the Springfield Buzzards in a Pacific Football League contest tonight in Cottage Grove, Ore.

Kickoff is 6 p.m. The Buzzards (0-2, 1-2) lost to the Seattle Stallions, 17-0, last weekend, but, according to Bearcats head coach Todd Hoiness, possess the league’s toughest defense. Springfield has been shut out in its first two league games this season.

Grays Harbor (2-0, 3-0) ran down the Portland Raiders, 44-18, in last week’s home opener.
