Lanesborough Tigers Show Improvement, but Drop Second Game at World Championships SportsPrint Story | Email Story
CANTON, Ohio -- The Lanesborough Tigers Friday dropped their second of two games at the World Youth Football Championships, falling to the Montana Outlaws, 30-0.
"The Outlaws had a very well-oiled passing attack that included four or five wideouts on each play, which is something the Tigers have never played defense against," Lanesborough coach Jason Pause said. "We eventually adjusted and improved our defense against the West Coast style offense, but not before getting down several touchdowns from some big pass plays."
In Friday's consolation game, the Tigers' offense had more success than it did in Thursday's tournament opener, but it was unable to finish drives and put the ball in the end zone.
Coming out on the losing side of the scoreboard diminishes neither the experience for the players nor the program's gratitude for the hundreds of people who contributed financially to the trip, Pause said.
"Very good and humbling experience for the team," he said. "I don’t think the score was a very good depiction of the game or competition on the field, but they where definitely the better team today. Many of our kids were still feeling sore from our first game, but we toughed it out and played our best."
The team heads back to the Berkshires on Saturday.

Lanesborough Police Chief Retiring, Taxes Dropping

By Jeff SnoonianiBerkshires Correspondent
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Police Chief Timothy Sorrell will be retiring after serving five years in the position. 
Sorrell was appointed chief in 2015 after serving in the Police Department for 28 years. He started full time in Lanesborough in 1987 as a patrolman. He served as sergeant for 12 years and was a finalist for the chief's position when the town decided to hire Mark Bashara. He then served as an investigator for twelve years under Bashara before getting the spot spot upon his retirement in 2015. 
When asked for comment on Sorrell's departure on Monday, the Board of Selectmen said almost in unison, "he will be missed" and they all wished him luck along with Town Manager Kelli Robbins.
The process of finding his replacement was started immediately as the board wasted no time in forming a search committee.
