Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.

I’m often surprised at the frequency in which I hear a Christian bring up Karma. As applied, Karma is the great balancer in the universe to right all wrongs and keep each successive day moving along as it should. It might be a warning to a person that a momentary bad deed will come back to haunt them, or an encouragement to a person wronged that retribution is on its way. Spend a few moments sitting at your local coffee shop and you’ll overhear hints of this in the conversations all around you. Whether we profess faith in Jesus or not, most of us live with a deep need for fairness in our daily lives. It’s what makes our world tick.

Most teams are in trouble when the captain and four-year starter at point guard goes down with a season-ending knee injury to begin the second game of the season. Not Gilbert Christian. The Knights plugged in a freshman, played defense, rediscovered their footing a few times along the way, and staged a couple bigtime comebacks in the state tournament to win the Div. IV state championship and second title in four years. Freshman Lauryn Satterwhite became the team’s point guard after Colleen Young suffered torn ligaments during the Queen Creek tournament to begin the season, and Meg van Rijn, Alyssa Elias and Cassidy Curtner rallied the girls. All five of the team’s losses came against teams in higher divisions, and the Knights used a 13-2 run to end the game and erase a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat St. David, 32-30, and win the championship.

McClintock (6-3-1) scored three runs in the 10th inning to beat Maricopa. Junior shortstop Mary Mentz's double scored senior center fielder Karina Hidalgo with the the go-ahead run, and senior pitcher Shealynn Zimnick followed one out later with a two-run single, scoring Andi Blodgett and Mentz with insurance runs. It was McClintock's third victory this season coming in its final at-bat, having previously topped El Paso Franklin and Bushland, Texas, in the Fox Country Girls Fast Pitch Tournament in El Paso. McClintock also put up two runs in the seventh inning Tuesday to rally from a 2-1 deficit, but surrendered the tying run in the bottom of the inning, sending the game to extra innings. Mentz led McClintock, going 4 for 5 with two doubles and a triple, while Zimnick was 3 for 4 with a double and a walk. She also improved her record in the circle to 5-2, striking out eight. Maricopa got two hits apiece from Madison Byrd, Madison Moncel and Vickie Andrade while playing stellar defense.
