The Reverend Jerry Falwell says Bush's victory has encouraged him to start up a new version of the Moral Majority ... this one aimed at keeping Christians involved in the political process.

The match was played this afternoon on the Elizabeth Campus as the ODAC Champions took on the visitors from Pennsylvania. The Maroons had all kinds of chances to turn this game in a blowout. With under two minutes left in the first half Roanoke is in great position for the tally, but the shot off the break from Elliott Hodge is stopped in the left corner.

Then early in the second half, Roanoke again has a wide open goal after come nice passing, but Elliott Stallings gets blocked and then pulls the rebound shot to the left of the goal. Roanoke also had a excellent chance to score off this free kick, but Dave DeMello's hook shot is just a foot shy of perfection.
