After going on the road in the season opening win against Long Island, the Chesapeake Bayhawks will make their home debut against the Ohio Machine on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Midfielder and Bud Light MVP Ben Hunt will lead the Bayhawks against the expansion Machine. Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle said he does not know how the Machine will play as a team even though he is familiar with some Machine players. Regardless, at this early stage of the season, Cottle is focused on building the Bayhawks identity.
Right now, our complete focus is on trying to improve ourselves. We need to get better from week to week if we want to be a factor in this league, Cottle said.
In the win over Long Island, rookie goalie T.C. DiBartolo made 15 saves while Hunt totaled five points.
The Portland Trail Blazers are setting the bar high for NBA Halloween.
Maurice Harkless made his arrival in style turning a corner dressed as Tyrone Biggums from the American sketch comedy television series "Chapelle's Show."
But it got better. Bosnia native and seven-footer Jusuf Nurkic turned the corner as Beast from Walt Disney's classic romance film Beauty and the Beast.
The bar has been set.
Washington looks for its first win tonight after falling to 0-2 right out of the gate, while Portland aims for a 3-0 start after defeating the Spurs 121-108 Saturday night.

On June 7 in Las Vegas, Jay Beagle was in a Capitals uniform as they hoisted their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Three weeks later, the 33-year-old signed a four-year, $12-million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
The Capitals begin a four-game, Canadian road trip this evening in Vancouver. Beagle did not attend the Capitals ring ceremony at the Palm three weeks ago so the Caps awarded Beagle with his ring today.
Each ring contains 252 diamonds, 35 rubies and one sapphire. Beagle was impressed but isn't sure how much use the ring will get.
“Not sure I’ll wear it again. It’s like wearing my truck.”
Jay Beagle will not be on the ice tonight against his former team. Beagle broke his forearm when he blocked a shot against the Florida Panthers on October 13th. Beagle is expected to be sidelined for another five weeks.
Despite the injury, it has still been a great week for Beagle.
A shiny, new ring AND a baby girl. Not too shabby.
