Weary Jackets unable to weather the Storm in a 9-point defeat
by Jonathan Snyder
The Cedarville Yellow Jackets fell to Lake Erie Storm 81-70 in a game that saw little interior defense for the Jackets.
The team came into this game after a physical contest against conference rival Walsh on Thursday, and the Jackets were feeling the effects of the previous battle throughout the first half.
From the opening tip, it was clear that the Storm would make the Jackets work for the win, with double teams on the sidelines and quick ball movement forcing the ...
Lady Jackets’ win over Erie Storm, gaining ground in GMAC.
by Jonathan Snyder
The Cedarville Lady Jackets continue to turn their season around with an 83-77 win over the Lake Erie Storm.
The Lady Jackets displayed fluid ball movement in the 1st quarter, getting out to a 26-13 lead thanks to a 12-3 run to round it out. The Lady Jackets' stingy defense only allowed 4 points in the paint.
The Lady Jackets would keep Lake Erie at arm’s length for the rest of the first half, but the Storm’s three-point shooting would close the gap a bit in the ...

‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ is a fascinating, albeit plain, slow-burn
By Samuel M Acosta
When I originally saw the trailer for this film, it looked right up my alley. A low-budget, small cast, indie movie that just breathes raw humanity. Upon watching the film, those criteria were met, and while I enjoy many of the concepts presented by the film, I don’t feel like the slow burn pays off in a satisfying way. I am left wanting something just a little bit more.
“The Banshees of Inisherin” follows Padraic, played by Colin Ferrel, a man living on the ...

By Samuel M Acosta
This review may contain spoilers for “Avatar: The Way of Water”
After thirteen years of waiting, the sequel to James Cameron’s blockbuster “Avatar” has finally been released. After rewatching the original film in IMAX and being blown away by its beauty and world, I rushed to the theaters on opening day to see what the newest installment has to offer. What I discovered is a film that is almost more engaging than the original, and somehow presents an even more ...
‘The Last of Us’ episode one is a triumph of television adaptations
By Ben Konuch
“Billions of puppets with poisoned minds fixed on one unifying goal: to spread the infection to every human alive by any means necessary. And there are no treatments for this, no preventatives, no cures, it’s not even possible to make them.”
When I was fourteen, I was able to experience PlayStation’s “The Last of Us” for the first time, and it changed how I looked at storytelling. When the game was first released in 2013, what first appeared as a fairly generic ...
Cedarville outlasts Walsh in conference title rematch
By: Alan Brads
Pressure mounted, tempers flared and tension built to the point of explosion, escalating to a raucous celebration after the Yellow Jackets’ 72-65 victory.
These two schools competed in last year’s conference championship game, with Walsh winning the title, but a determined core group of Cedarville upper-classmen refused to let Walsh halt another winning streak.
Every Walsh-Cedarville game is intense, and this game was no exception. Cedarville’s play embodied the ...

‘Matilda the Musical” is far from revolting
By Janie Walenda
Musical adaptations of Roald Dahl’s books have been hit or miss, with an emphasis on the miss. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” has had more commercial success, but that and “James and the Giant Peach” live fondly only in the hearts of theater kids who performed them in high school.
“Matilda,” on the other hand, has been better received, with multiple Tony and Olivier awards, and is still performing in London’s West End after 12 years. Therefore, the ...
