Long before the opening kickoff, the odds began to stack up against Moffat County’s boys soccer team in its Saturday game at Roaring Fork. “It got away from us when we left home and two guys didn’t show up today,” Bulldogs coach Rusty Cox lamented. “We had a starter that didn’t show up, so it started bad. We had to juggle our lineup a little bit.” That meant a number of freshmen logging big minutes. Mix in composure issues and it just wasn’t meant to be for Moffat County on Saturday. Getting their lone goal from Alan Flores, the Bulldogs suffered a 4-1 defeat in Carbondale.

Fall behind by 20. Mount a furious comeback. Lose by six. The ugly interceptions didn't play into Peyton Manning's second straight defeat, but so much of the rest of it sounded like a broken record — the likes of which the Broncos quarterback doesn't want to hear anymore. Matt Schaub lost a small chunk of his ear after a brutal hit, but still outplayed Manning, throwing for four touchdowns against a confused Broncos defense Sunday to stake the Houston Texans to a big lead on the way to a 31-25 victory. "We have to learn from this game, address it, be honest, everybody needs to be accountable and try to improve forward," Manning said. "It's not the ideal situation. Everybody would love to be 3-0. That's not the way it is right now."
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign strove to turn the page on a week of public stumbles and Republican hand-wringing Sunday, promising a redoubled effort in the most competitive states to undercut his opponent's economic record as voters tune in for the final six weeks of a close race. President Barack Obama, taking a rare break from the campaigning ahead of an address to world leaders on Tuesday, dispatched top allies to try to keep Romney's missteps alive in the minds of a dwindling cadre of undecided voters. Both candidates were looking ahead to the pivotal next phase of the campaign, where the three presidential debates — the first on Oct. 3 in Denver — present the greatest opportunities to speak directly to voters or to get tripped up by a gaffe-turned-sound bite with little time to recover before Election Day.
